Free Movies

I watch a lot of movies. Some are on DVD. It's a shame I have DVDs that I've seen once which are sitting neglected on a shelf. I'd love for these films to have more life.

Help me with this. Pick any of these movies, e-mail me your choices ( and I'll mail the DVDs to you. For keeps. I'll even pay the postage.

Movies are fun!

[P.S., Some of you commented that you don't have a DVD player. You can watch these films on your computer if it has a DVD drive, which most do.]

  1. You are so sweet to give away your DVDs like that!

  2. Well Heaven and frozen River, plus the Harry Chapin in concert would be my choices, but I don't think I have a dvd player. I will ask hubby ( how embarrassing)

  3. Thank you Ally ! I no longer own a dvd... and I no longer have cable tv.

  10. You're a generous person. What a nice way to pass on some appreciaton for the arts!

  11. you are such an unbelievably caring human :) You really are. Your posts always make me smile and it's so nice to return here, to your beautiful home :)

  12. I've watched some of them, and The Pianist (along with Across the Universe) are my favorite. I wish I could watch Shameless because I heard that Steven Robertson play on one of the episodes. But I live in Indonesia, though, so I don't know if it possible.
    You're really sweet by doing this. You make me smile just by reading this post :)

  13. That is so immensely kind + generous + considerate of you, Ally. Your heart of gold shines so brightly, the sun is jealous.
