Blog > September Writing Prompt: The last movie you've seen

Writing prompt The writing prompts are an ongoing experiment that invites postcrossers to write about a different topic on their postcard’s messages every month. These are just suggestions though — if you already know what you want to write about, or the recipient gives you some pointers, that’s great too!

We’ve suggested book and music-themes for these writing prompts before… but what about movies? Cinema is a popular past-time, with many people enjoying a movie now and then.

In September, write about the last movie you’ve seen.

At the time I’m writing this post, the last movie we’ve seen was Coco, a fun animated movie about a music-loving boy who accidentally finds himself in the Land of the Dead… and gets into all kinds of adventures trying to find his way back to his family. It’s beautifully done and I promise that after you watch it, you’ll never be able to see a “Remember me” checkbox on any login page again without humming the corresponding song from the movie… 😜

What about you? Was the last movie you’ve seen any good? Share your big screen tips on the postcards you write this month!

Tha last film I have seen in the cinema was an ice landing movie. His tittle is Good Neighbours`. It is a very dramatic comedy, I am sorry but I am not sure to recommend it.

I can't go to the cinema because of health reasons. However, once in a while we rent DVDs from the library and watch them at home. Right now, we have Sherlock Gnomes on the shelf but haven't watched it yet. The last one we watched (rented) was Gnomeo and Juliet and I loved it.

The latest movie I have seen was "Loving, Vincent". It is an awesome movie, for it was completely painted in the way Vincent van Gogh painted his pictures! A postcrosser from Switzerland has recommended it to me and I recommended it to other postcrossers who like van Gogh's art.

@507: I wondered what an ice landing movie would be, perhaps something about figure skating or ski jumping. 😁

I watch movies every night and the last movie I watched was "A Thousand Words" (2012) with my friend Chantal. It is a nice movie about how good it is to forgive people and the movie for tonight will be "When We First Met" (2018).

The latest movie I saw recently at our multiplex cinema was LITTLE ITALY (2018, Canada/USA, Directed by Donald Petrie). It was an English language, laugh-a-minute, romantic-comedy set in Toronto's iconic LIttle Italy. The characters are archetypes of all your stereotypical ethnic send-ups and absurdist caricatures of our country's Italian diaspora & their Canadian raised descendants. Veteran actress/comedian Andrea Martin who played the randy grandma really stole the movie from all the other stars like Emma Roberts, Hayden Christensen, Danny Aiello, Jane Seymore & Adam Ferrara. The other character actor that really surprisingly resonated for me in the film was none other than Calgary-raised Asian Canadian actor/comedian/improviser Andrew Phung (KIM'S CONVENIENCE). He played the leading man's often off-colored Chinese best friend who thinks he's as Italian as everyone else! When this movie makes it over to your local cinema or Netflix, make sure you get a chuckle or two out of this fast moving comedy gem.

The last movie I saw was Mama mia Here We Go Again. I must say i like the first part better because the story was more believable. But the scriptwriters did a good job in weaving Abba's music into the story. There was a huge gap in the 2nd movie, though, particularly, how Fernando got involved with the main character.

@BenatCalgary - I hope that movie will be released in our country. It sounds hilariously fun!

Flippie, Canada
The last movie was also; Mama Mia Here We Go Again, and I loooooved it! It was again filled with laughter, good ABBA-music and humor. I loved again the story line, it was certainly a Feel Good Movie for the Summer. It was nice to see, Benny & Bjorn from ABBA, playing a role. Highly recommend!

A few days ago, here in Rome, I saw the film Adrift ("Stay with me", the title in Italian), and as a good sailor as I was, I became involved in the story, which moved me to the tender sentiment that the film showed...

The last movie I saw was the Jimmy Barnes story. Working Class Boy. I really enjoyed watching the life story of a famous musician. I was rather shocked at how hard his younger life actually was. My partner & I really loved the movie & would recommend it to everyone who likes Jimmy Barnes.

I don´t go to the cinema very often (so once in 1-2 years), but this summer I saw the last adaptation of "Unknown Soldier". I'm basically not a fan of war films, but I love Finland and I knew a book. I don´t regret going to the cinema: an excellent camera, the film perfectly reflects the Finnish soul and nature

Unfortunately, I haven't watched lots of movies recently because of a very tight working schedule (was busy with translations). However, the last movie I've seen and that impressed me was "The skin I live in" with Antonio Banderas. He is really a wonderful actor who played a really real crazy doctor!
For the next days, I have downloaded two movies: Dream House and The girl with dragon tatoo. Let's ee:)

The last movie I saw at the cinema: "Yours Juliet".
I had also read the book before and think the film was very successful. It is a touching, courageous and moving story!

Sadly I missed "Yours Juliet". Last movie was "The children act" with Emma Thompson at her best. Very disturbing movie on central questions - legal, ethical and moral

I've been to the movie "Abba - here we come again" with our daughter and I loved it. I wrote on FB that I want to see it again and asked who will go with me and the group is already 12 people. A little drink after the movie and we have a great evening!

I love movies because of the huge screen, when there are still wide landscapes to be seen and a great orchestra takes the hall on a journey. . . what more do you want?
In our small town there is an old cinema where you can still sit at the bar. The seats are worn out, but who cares? They only open on weekends. Soon there will be a huge new cinema in the neighbouring village. Will our cozy little cinema survive???
My last visit to the cinema: LaLaLand, I loved it

The last movie I saw was on a big screen in my back yard: "The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society". It is different from the book of the same name, but oh so wonderful. To be surrounded by friends on a cool summer night and watching a great movie is pure delight!

The Endless - one strange and interesting movie. Not sure if same is considered as horror movie, I may say it is some sort of sci-fi.

mirabella2618, Germany
the last movie I saw was the Disney film "Coco". Had not so much expectation, because I thought coloured Skeleton, that just can be all but ridiculous. But really it touched me a lot. It had so much Moral and subtext to show how life and loved ones are a precious gift. And that you also shouldn´t always weight People after her first apperance.

The last movie I watched was 'Like Father'. It was entertaining enough, but I would have loved to see more of Seth Rogen. He is fun.

Recently I had the opportunity to 're-watch' a movie I had not seen in years. It's an Australian movie called 'Picnic at Hanging Rock'...made in the 1970's and still one of my all time favorites. The theme music is an haunting as the movie. When I say 'haunting' I do not mean scary movie type of haunting. The movie leaves you with many questions unanswered but with a sense of mystery which invokes your imagination. Not many movies can do that these days. I can highly recommend it. Trailer with music:

I saw movie "Whitney" - and I still remain impressed. By chance I watched also "Grace Jones" and "Matangi/Maya/M.I.A." - they all three were/are great performer of songs and they had/have a big impact to their public (and also me).
