Have a Blissful Summer Weekend!

Golden wild grasses in the summer sunlight.
I love this beautiful, peaceful view!   
The summer heat is definitely upon us and quite frankly, I'm not really particularly eager to go out and..."play" in the sun.
 A beautiful red Geranium. 

It looks like summer
I woke up to a glorious, bright, summer day. With the summer 
season in its peak and the summer heat melting everything outside it is no surprise that I like to snuggle in the comfort of the cool breeze of the air conditioner.        
Hopefully I'll take a few days summer vacation in August, 
but I'm now looking for good movies to watch in the meantime.
I love classic films, Sci-Fi, drama, and biography genre and any movie that is uncommon.

Any movie suggestions? What would you recommend that could make my keep at home worthwhile?
I'd love to hear. Thanks so much. :)

Hope you have a wonderful weekend, my lovelies. xx

One of my favorite movies is "MOMENTOS" if I tell you anything about it, the whole thing is a waste.
Then there are my two classic favorites, "Of Mice and Men" both the ones with Burgess Meredith & Lon Chaney Jr, and the one with Gary Sinse & John Malkovitch.

Sorry to say, it's still not safe at my place. But I wanted to say hi.

Ted said...

A good film could be Coco Chanel's life. I really loved it.
Awesome photos!
kisses.

Steven Anthony said...

Pat Tillett said...

I don't really have a movie to suggest, but I loved the photos you posted. They look like summer!
Have a good weekend Betty...

michael said...

That golden grass caught my eye!
Awesome! I'm looking for suggestions myself.

Joe Cap said...

Your pictures are so lovely. We have lots of good photographers in blogland, you are definitely one of them.
Hmm...movies...I love science fiction, so I am gonna recommend anything with an outer space theme.
Have a great weekend!

Artscapes said...

Looking at your photographs I feel like I've been on a holiday. They are beautiful.
Have a cool weekend. How about Blade Runner, sci-fi classic.

RawknRobynsGoneBlogWild said...

Those are lovely photos, Betty.
Sorry I have no movies to suggest. I'm not a movie person, but I hope you find some high quality films to enjoy this weekend.

Mr. Stupid said...

Those pictures look beautiful. I have not watched a good movie for quite sometime. Hope you have a great weekend...:)

RA said...

Such lovely photos you posted! Hot summer, cooling waters.... :)

Films? Chocolate is one of my all time favorites and never gets old. Neither does Leon. But then, I love Jean Reno's performance in it...

Have a happy weekd end, Betty. :)

imac said...

its eautiful my friend, as you can see im missing the letter after a.

Willoughby said...

Your pictures are gorgeous!

I've watched a lot of good movies lately, but two of my favorites were Salton Sea and Happy Accidents. Salton Sea is a gritty drama and Happy Accidents is a romance with a bit of sci-fi thrown in.

Whatever you watch, have a wonderful weekend!

Turquoise Diaries said...

Melting is definitely the right word. Its melting here,too. I am only going to sea in the mornings then head to home to air coditioner..

George said...

I might venture out of the air-conditioning to enjoy the beach for a short time. Your pictures are beautiful. I really like your golden grasses.
I haven't seen a movie in ages. I'll look forward to hearing about the good suggestions you get.

Ah Ngao said...

Betty, go for "Batteries not Included".

Katherine ( Katie) Corrigan said...

Lovely photos. I am a movie-o-holic. So many favorites...the top of the list is always The Enchanted Cottage and The Big Chill followed by thousands of others. Hugs!

Kimberley said...

What great photos! I love the color of the grass in the first pic--it's gorgeous!!!

Happy weekend to you, Betty!

Kimberley

Sir Thomas said...

I would die for a little cove as such.....

Bossy Betty said...

Betty--Your pictures knock me out, baby! So beautiful. They really capture such peaceful scenes!

Jennifer Fabulous said...

These photos are simply gorgeous. And a reminder that I need to take advantage of this summer to do something magical and fun, other than sit in a library filling out job apps. Lol.

I hope you're having an awesome summer! xo

Tracy said...

Oh, I hear you. I am not a fan of the current heat. You sure have some beautiful views wherever this is though. I always look forward to the fall. That's when I catch "spring fever" in the desert. I'm off to San Francisco for a few days. That should cool me down a bit.

We just watched "Shutter Island". That was a good flick. Thanks for stopping by and leaving the nice comments.

Pat said...

Some of my old-time favorites:

To Kill a Mockingbird (it's the 50th anniversary this year)

The Heart is a Lonely Hunter

The Day the Earth Stood Still (Sci-Fi) (the original one - NOT the remake)

Close Encounters of the Third Kind (Sci-Fi)

Have a great weekend!

Dawn said...

I love your pictures!!! I am wanting to dabble in photography myself.

I would suggest The Great Gatsby.

Have a good weekend.

Diane AZ said...

That water sure does look refreshing. My favorite image is the one with the sandals and bird. I haven't seen any movies lately, but I wouldn't mind seeing Amadeus again. :)

Cloudia said...

TV: TCM oldies are cool!

Georgia said...

Gorgeous pics, Betty. just gorgeous!
Have a wonderful weekend!
hugs
Georgia

Kelly said...

A beautiful variety of colors and scenery in your photos!!

Sci-fi: I love Signs, Blade Runner, K-Pax, The Fifth Element, The Road Warrior...(to name a few)

We're planning to watch Invictus tonight. I hope it's as good as I'm anticipating!

Vodka Logic said...

More beautiful pictures. You are so lucky

Journaling Woman said...

I agree on all your movie choices. Ok here's what I like:

*Old movies*
Barefoot in the Park (LOVE IT)
Grapes of Wrath (very old)
The Graduate (watching this weekend)
The Birds

*Older*
The Client
Sleeping with the Enemy
Lost in Space
The hand that rocks the cradle

*Newer*
IRobot (Will Smith - sci fi)

My other favs are comedies and or romance with drama. If you want that list, let me know.

That should keep you buys. ;)

steveroni said...

Thank you for a surprise visit to steveroni, Betty. I truly feel special now...

Your photo opportunities are so well chosen, then framed with the eye of an artist--you.

My favorites are those horizontal parallel lines of the sky, water flow, and the concrete banister, just a scene, but beautifully arranged by You and god!

Other favorite is the seabird and pair of shoes. "Hmmmmm, shall i see what's in those shoes?" the bird is saying, evaluating his risks.

Thank you again for your visit, let's do this again, betty! OK?

Nevine said...

Your pix are gorgeous, Betty! But when are your pix ever not gorgeous? You bring life to moments captured... always.

As for movie suggestions, here are some of my faves: Perfume, Amelie, Immortal Beloved, Henry and June, Lolita, And Now Ladies and Gentlemen.

Have a lovely weekend, Betty. Cool hugs and kisses on this warm and blazing weekend! ;-) And stay inside!!!

Hugs,
Nevine

SquirrelQueen said...

Lovely summer images. I would love to have a lake or beach like that nearby. We had a short break from the heat today but it will return soon.

Air conditioning and any Sci-Fi or foreign film would make me happy when the temps rise.

ritsa said...

I don't have really any movie to suggest but I love your pics!!
Beautiful!

Emm said...

Stunning photos as always! I really envy you living in a place like that as it is so beautiful and I love the sea. As much as i love beaches and water though, I doubt I could ever live in one as I love the city too much. Perhaps I need to move to Sydney!

Thank you so much for this little trip to the sea then - I especially love that photo with the summer hat and the water with the sea in the background.

Have you ever seen Enchanted April?

athina said...

As I have seen,the cinemas play most old movies in the summer.I think that in a magazine I read that this week in the cinemas is played the movie of 1960 "Bonnie and Claid" and "singing in the rain".They may be black and white but they have social meanings.
Enjoy summertime!

yonca said...

Naturedigital said...

Absolutely beautiful summer photographs, catching the holidays spirit.
When I look at them, I want to jumb in the water.

Melissa B. said...

Have a wonderful vacation! Hope you're able to get yourself together and re-group...I'd watch anything with Lauren Bacall. To Have and to Have Not is one of my favorites.
