Okay ladies, in true "Kim" fashion, I need some recommendations for good movies and can't seem to do that without your input! DH and I have been making more time to watch movies, (together and apart), so our Netflix list is down to about 10 movies.

Tell me about your favorites, but please don't spoil the movie.

Also, the discussion could become fun if everyone is fully aware that spoilers may be inevitable. So, tell me what you think I should watch next! Please!

I loved "The Banger Sisters" and "The Devil Wears Prada". I've also enjoyed "The Queen" and "Elizabeth - the Golden Age". "Hairspray" was good and the last Pirates one was fun too. Of course, I just adore Johnny Depp! I think it's the eye make-up that gets to me.

I like drama & action, not much for "Girlie" or comedy but there's been a few movies I never would have watched that other people told me about and I liked.
The Notebook (2nd'ing this one)
Shall We Dance
City of Angels
Pride & Prejudice
Under the Tuscan Sun
What Women Want

What genre do you want recommendations from?

Thanks for the suggestions~I'm going to head to Netflix to add some of these to my list. Keep 'em coming, though. !

LoveMySgt: We're open to pretty much anything. DH loves sports movies, action, comedy, suspense, sci-fi, etc. and I like fantasy, sci-fi, classics, musicals, foreign films, CGI, etc., etc.

I'm just not a girlie-movie girl. I've tried, but just can't do it. The one that I did love was The Family Stone. I've gotten The Notebook four times and just cannot get through it ~ sorry, GonnaBe!

I'm not really into chick-flicks either. The Banger Sisters was an exception.

You didn't specify new movies, so here's some we've discovered from Netflix:

Real Women Have Curves
An Unfinished Life
Akeelah and the Bee
Second Hand Lions
The World's Fastest Indian
Proof
Quiz Show
Amazing Grace
Chocolat
Mrs. Palfrey at the Claremont
Inherit the Wind
Mr. Smith Goes to Washington
Lion in Winter
the Illusionist
Happy Feet!

I had to throw a couple of old ones in too Sometimes I forget those when I make my lists. Some of their recommendations have been really good but you do have to check them out first.

Cyndi: Chocolat and Second Hand Lions are two of my favorites. I own both and we watch them fairly often.

LoveMySgt: DH wants to see 300, so we may need to add that to the list.

Kim, I don't have a chance to watch a lot of movies, and when I do it's usually kid's movies. So I've been racking my brain, and finally came up with a few I've really enjoyed.

Harry Potters of course
Pleasantville
Cider House Rules
Blade Runner
The Tempest (from the early 80's, with Molly Ringwald and john Cassavetes, and lots of other notables)
Arsenic and Old Lace (Cary Grant)
Philadelphia Story (ditto)
Chocolat
Second Hand Lions (***)
Moonstruck
Four Weddings and a Funeral
Love Actually
Amelie
Jean de Florette
Manon de la Source
The Godfather
My Life as a Dog
Groundhog Day
Le Retour de Martin Guerre
All About Eve
Romeo and Juliet - Zeffirelli's
Babette's Feast

Wow, once they started coming, they just kept coming!

We watched The Family Stone when I was in labor with Avery. I wasn't impressed, but I was also in labor, so I missed most of it...

My favorite movies of all time are:
The American President
The Sandlot
Hook
A Bronx Tale

I second The Usual Suspects, if harsh language doesn't get to you. I normally don't care for a lot of cursing, but that movie is soooo good that I could look past it.

The latest kids' movies that we saw that were great:
Ratatouille (I'm not sure I spelled that properly.)
Transformers (I didn't really like it, but Tom and Connor watch it at least once a week!)

Hope that helps!

Kara
