Simple Things

By
Services for Real Estate Pros

What does one write about when one has nothing Real Estate related to write about, and I'm about "Evented" out until next month. I do have one more big event next month but I'm not ready to put yet another event on Localism. I do have another "Keeping Children Safe"blog started but that does have to wait for reasons you will understand when it is posted. So, thought I would tell you about my nice quiet rainy cold Saturday. I sat snuggled in my recliner and watched a wonderful new movie I recently received.

Some of you know I spent some time with Mickey Jones during Speed Week and got to know him pretty well. Mickey recently finished filming a independent film in North Carolina with a company called Back 40 Films and producers David and Olson Huff a father and son team. The movie is called Simple Things. The cast also includes Cameron Bancroft, BellamyYoung, Aidan Mitchell & Amber Benson.  If you want to view the trailer click here Simplethingsthemovie.com.  

Simple Things has won The Spirit Award, The Audience Award and Best Child Actor Award In A Supporting Role at the at the International Family Film Festival and is a Finalist for Best Feature.

I'm not going to ruin it for you, but the premise of the film is big city doctor and his young son go to a small town in North Carolina to help get a medical clinic off the ground. The story was written by Dr. Olson Huff and the script and acting are awesome. It appeared to me by the way the movie was edited that this film may come to the small screen. My only gripe was some of the scenes were too short, they could have added a bit more to at least 2 very important scenes to make them more powerful as the movie is only 99 minutes long. It could have been a budget issue, I don't know. But all in all, it is a good movie. Mickey's part is a riot by the way, he plays Slider the handy man.

If after viewing the trailer you decide you don't wait to wait for the movie to come to your local movie rental store or out on the small screen, you can purchase it for a whopping $10.00 at  Musk Entertainment  (I paid $13.05 with tax and shipping). I am going to order 3 more for family members and have Mickey sign them when he is in town next month.

This film is well worth the $10.00, it makes one realize that SIMPLE THINGS are what matter most in this life.

Lysa, I want to say right off the bat I did not read you complete post, I refuse to be told you are going to ruin a perfectly good movie by telling me the ending etc.  LOL, I skimmed through your post, hoping that I will return to it to see then ending part of your scenario.  I love hearing from you on here, and good luck with your event!

BOB!! "I'm not going to ruin it for you" I would never give a movie away! You scared the heck out of me! I thought I had a really bad TYPO! Come on back and read it :)

Thank you for the sweet compliment, and the wishes on our event, it will be for St. Jude. You'll learn all about it soon!

Lysa, I'm back!  Oh no, I feel so bad, I read it, and will make sure I see this movie, it sound like an inspirational movie which is what we look for.  Thank you for letting me know to read on, LOL... I did only read enough to catch my eye and made me want to see it.  St. Jude is wonderful, I miss Danny, but his wonderful daughter has taken up his cross to bear and is doing a wonderful job.  Just like you here!  Thank you for sharing, and I am so sorry if I scared you, I would never want to ever do that.

Bob, No Worries! I'm glad you came back! It is a inspirational film for sure. Yes, St. Jude is a wonderful organization and Marlo has done a super job filling her father's shoes in carrying on the St. Jude Tradition.

I will have to grab a copy of the movie.  Sounds like something my children can watch.

Lysa...

I know this is terrible and probably will not surprise you much.

I very rarely watch Movies or T.V. I also can't stand the loud dark movie theatres. I know I may have a phobia there.

Anyway, I did want you to know that I stopped by and read your blog post. I couldn't very well do that without leaving a comment. That would be rude :-)

Hey. I know I can leave you a song...I'm a music freak. La La La La...

I can't stand theaters myself either, don't think it's a phobia, think its the fact they want you to pay 8.50 for the flick, plus garage parking, plus food... I usually do video's if I watch them. A secret back? Our cable bill is 11.00 a month, we get 20 channels, 15 are english, 12 are non religion and 1 is a community board. so we get what 10 stations?

GOOD TUNE! Thanks! Music is way better! Have you been proclaimed the official AR VJ yet? :)

You're welcome. Music soothes the savage beast ROAR      :-)

Hmmm. VJ huh? Not yet. But I'm going to proclaim myself that. Thanks for that idea. I appreciate it.

Let's just see if I can get Laurie Manny to go along with it. She's a music freak too. SVW...

I don't think she has figured out embed the videos. YET. Hmmm. Guess I'll have to chat with her about that. 

TLW...ROAR!

Lysa, this movie sounds right up my alley.  I am only into inspirational and comedy films, having grown weary of horror and suspense.  Now that I've seen the trailer I'm actually afraid to watch it in case the kid doesn't make it....  I'm such a wuss.....  Thanks for not sticking to "real estate only posts."  =)
