Getting Ready for May

Next month, I'm going to have a fun theme for Movie Mondays: documentaries! Okay, maybe "fun" isn't quite the correct word, but I'm excited. I've got a long list to whittle down to 5 features, and I'm going to do this month's Movie Mondays a little differently. I want to give you all a chance to really engage in the Movie Monday discussions, so once I get my list finalized, I will give it to you, so you can watch them ahead of time with me and be part of the conversation.

So, because I know you guys are curious people who like to learn, like me, I'm opening this post to suggestions for my list. I've got almost a month to work through them all, so feel free to recommend any documentaries you have seen that you want to share.

Wow, this wasn't quite the exciting post I imagined it would be. Oh well. Don't forget to check out my giveaways this week! And be sure and share them!

  2. I love documentaries! A really good one is The Business of Being Born (which I love because I think I secretly want to be a midwife) but I can't wait to see which ones you recommend for me to watch :)

  3. One of my favorite documentaries is Dear Zachary. I don't want to describe it too much because I don't want to give away the twist, but it is really good and will probably also make you really angry.

  5. I watched a touching & interesting documentary on: Section 60 - Arlington National Cemetery. I learned quite about about the history as well as the newest Heroes laid to rest there.

  6. Orgasmic Birth (the title is a little whoa but don't let that scare you off) is pretty amazing. I also loved Food Inc.

  7. Have you ever seen The Way We Get By? If not, you have to see it! (I think you can watch it instantly on Netflix.) It's a great documentary about the Maine troop greeters. It was sad and touching all at the same time.

    P.S. I love documentaries, so I'm interested to see which ones you recommend!
