Stream-It Saturday: You Can Count on Me (Movie)

Stream-It Saturday: You Can Count on Me (Movie)

In my continuing selfless service to the world (ahem), I'm always looking for the next awesome thing to stream. And, of course, I must share my finds with you fabulous folks. Hence, Stream-It Saturday. 

This week's choice is one of my favorite movies, You Can Count on Me, released in 2000, starring Mark Ruffalo (Terry) and Laura Linney (Sammy) as estranged siblings reunited due to Sammy being broke once again. 

I'm not usually a fan of sibling stories, since I don't have any brothers or sisters and I find those relationships rather weird (sorry!), but You Can Count on Me is beautiful in its messiness.

Stream-It Saturday: Life on Four Strings (Documentary)

Stream-It Saturday: Life on Four Strings (Documentary)

Welcome to another installment of Stream-It Saturday, in which I feed your streaming addiction. Find past recommendations over here.

Have I mentioned that I'm embroiled in a deep love affair with the ukulele? It is a known fact that ukulele is the happiest instrument and that it's impossible to not be happy when playing or listening to ukulele. This is the truth.

Also true is that Hawaiian musician Jake Shimabukuro is the best, most innovative ukulele artist. I recently watched a wonderful documentary about Jake and his music and life, Life on Four Strings.

Stream-It Sunday: How I Live Now (Movie)

Stream-It Sunday: How I Live Now (Movie)

Have I mentioned that I am the unofficial Queen of Streaming?

We don't have cable or satellite television, so the majority of my television consumption is thanks to my beloved Roku box. (Note to self: Write a post about how we don't have cable & manage to watch a crap-ton of television.) I dig pretty deep into the streaming services for my screen time. 

For awhile now I've been meaning to start an irregular series with my recommendations for finds on Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Instant, and so on. I thought I'd kick off this series by featuring a movie I watch with week on Netflix, the film adaptation of Meg Roscoff's How I Live Now.

Podcast #17: Battleship & The Art of "Terribletastic"

Podcast #17: Battleship & The Art of "Terribletastic"

We thought we'd finish off the first year of our (award-nominated... omigod!) podcast with a fun discussion of one of our beloved, and often maligned, movies, Battleship. Now don't run screaming for the hills, this podcast isn't just about Battleship--it's about things that are on the surface "terrible," but are actually fantastic.

Terribletastic, if you will.

Other highlights include an exclusive, only on CEFS, discussion of the proper way to assemble a Slurpee/ICEE at the movies, a debate on whether or not Justin Timberlake can carry an action flick and why Prometheus is possibly the worst movie in history. 

As always, you can listen to the podcast by streaming on this page, downloading the MP3 below or by subscribing in iTunes. If you're an iTuner, we very much appreciate your rating and reviewing the podcast, as it helps us to show up in iTunes searches. We're also now on Stitcher Radio, so if you prefer that app, you can subscribe here.
