Movies on Netflix

Since I’m recuperating from last year’s surgery I was able to finish watching several movies on Netflix. I’m currently watching season 6 of Teen Wolf, an American supernatural drama. Next on my list is a movie titled The Music of Strangers, which is a documentary about the journey of cellist Yo-Yo Ma’s ensemble, a group of more than 50 artists who broaden musical horizons around the world. I’m sure to see several instruments some of which could be from braintree ma at Guitar Center.

Movies in my mind

After watching (in part) Oscars 2013 last night, I asked hubby if he can find a clear copy of the nominated films on the Internet. I so love watching movies and I couldn’t wait to have a personal copy of each of the movies featured last night. One of the nominated films was highly acclaimed for its musical scoring. The musical director must have used Sibelius 7 while writing the beautiful scores. The background music alone is engrossing.

Tuesday Couch Potatoes: Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief

My enchanted movie pick for this week is Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief. My kids  like this movie because it has a good storyline and they are fond of Greek Mythology.


When his lightning bolt is stolen, Zeus accuses Poseidon’s son Percy Jackson and gives Poseidon fourteen days to return it, otherwise he will initiate a war against his brother. Meanwhile the teenager, Percy, who is dyslexic and has ADHD is visiting The Museum of Metropolitan of Art and is attacked by a Fury disguised in his teacher. His crippled best friend Grover reveals that Percy is a demigod and that he is his protector and his teacher Mr Brunner gives him a pen telling him that it is a powerful weapon. They go to Percy’s house and together with his mother Sally they drive to the Camp Half-Blood. However Sally is attacked by a Minotaur and vanishes before Percy can help her. In the camp, Percy befriends the gorgeous Annabeth; when they are attacked by Hades who wants the lighting bolt for himself, Percy discovers that his mother is in Hell with Hades. Percy decides to travel on a dangerous quest to retrieve the lightning bolt and save his mother. – Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
