Matt at the Movies – August 2014

        I’m trying to watch more movies this year than last year. As of today, I have watched 46 movies with a goal of 72 for all of 2014 . I have a list of over 300 movies that I want to see, and more coming out each week that make my list. The majority of the time, I watch movies from the comfort of my living room, but on occasion, I will venture out to the theater, or even the drive in for a film or two. You can check out my movie watchlist on IMDB, or on my Trakt.TV profile.

NFL Predictions 2014 – Playoffs

NFL Predictions 2014 – Playoffs

Here are my predictions for the playoffs of the 2014 NFL season. I started doing this last year, and I must say I was quite accurate. I correctly predicted the final records of 5 teams (Seahawks, Dolphins, Colts, Oakland, and Minnesota), if you don’t count Minnesota’s tie. Also I correctly predicted 4 out of the 8  division winners, and 7 out of the 12 playoff teams. I know, I know, you are amazed at my accuracy!! With nowhere to go but up, I will predict this year’s NFL standings.

Here are my other preditions: AFC Predictions NFC Predictions

IMDB Top 250

I was recently poking around IMDb, and stopped to check out the latest Top 250 list. After looking through the list for awhile, I realized I haven’t seen a lot of the movies on that list. I’ve been watching a lot of movies lately, but most of them are new movies, released in the last five years. That means I’m missing out on a ton of other movies that came out years ago, and some even before  I was born. Some of the movies I have watched recently have been pretty terrible, but I watched them because they were newer. There’s so many movies on the list that are probably way better than the ones I’m watching.

Senior Discounts List

Senior Discounts

No one likes getting older, and no one likes overspending on everyday items. As luck would have it, we’ve found a solution! Well, not for the getting older thing. We’ll leave that to scientists. As far as overspending your hard earned dollars, we have great news!

I stumbled upon an article the other day listing over 100 companies that offer discounts to “seniors”. The only thing you have to do to qualify is be above a certain age. Even better news is that you don’t have to wait until your 65 or older for a lot of these discounts. Some stores are offering the deals to people that are over 60, over 55, and they are even offering discounts to people as young as 50! Turns out you don’t have to be a “senior” to start cashing in on the savings. These senior discounts are out there at stores and restaurants where you are already shopping, and all you have to do is ask for your Senior Discount to enjoy the savings.
