    The Magic of Belle Isle;
    The Bucket List;
    The Ultimate Gift and the back story to it: The Ultimate Life (the second is not quite as good, but really helps you understand the motivation of James Garner's character in the first one)
    Brave
    these are all family favorites at our house. : )

    I will start with "Persuasion." Love it! My favorite movie.
    I love the Bronte sisters so "Jane Eyre."
    I loved the movie "Sabrina" with Harrison Ford!
    "Say Anything" with John Cusak and Ione Sky.
    All the Tolkien movies.
    "12 Years a Slave" was real good but hard to watch.
    "Gravity" was real good!
    "Enders' Game" was excellent.
    As you can see, I like a light romance. I like good movies. No war movies for me. I usually do not like violent movies but I love the "Girl with the Dragon Tattoo." I wish they would do the other books too.

    We just saw "God Is Not Dead" and loved it. I'm going to watch for "Heaven Is For Real". Several I wanted to see and missed.

    Homefront with Jason Statham is good, it does have some violence though.

    Last Vegas was very funny.

    I want to see Saving Mr. Banks also.

    Elysium was a good one.

    Parkland was good.

    Planes was amusing

    2 Guns and White House Down had amusing points throughout. Even though they are action flicks.

    Olympus Has Fallen is awesome.

    Mud with Matthew McConaughey was better than I thought it would be, there is some violence.

    42 is great if you like Baseball movies.

    Cloud Atlas was so boring and confusing for me, I quit watching it within 15 min.

    The Impossible was a tense movie.

    The Lucky One is a great chick flick.

    For Animation the Lorax was good and the Croods was funny. Hotel Transylvania is hilarious, I loved that movie.
    Everything important in my life, like naps, I learned from my dog.

    If you can get it, watch 'District 9'. It's a great movie, good for all ages -the first few minutes are wierd, but after that it becomes absolutely riveting.
    A quilt is like a good life. It's full of mistakes, but, in the end, it looks pretty good.

    Boy now I know I really have to get out more! I can't tell you the last time I was in a movie theater and don't watch much TV. The only 2 mentioned here that I have seen is Independence Day and Shawshank Redemption. they were both very good - I think we have seen Shawshank about 3 times and this is from someone who never watches anything twice (well almost never).

    if she doesn't want to see sex I wouldn't recommend sons of anarchy. It's a pretty graphic show and i wouldn't watch it with my teens. Planes, Trains and Automobiles has a part with a lot of F-bombs in it.

    Night at the museum 1 & 2 are both good and funny too.
    National Treasure and the sequel are both good.
    The re-make of Yours, Mine and Ours is a good one as well.
    The joy of the Lord is my strength.

    Here Comes the Boom with Kevin James is the best movie I've seen in a long time. They are starting to show it on cable TV a lot now. Another movie I loved, tho it's older, is Curly Sue with Jim Belushi. We love all the Harry Potter movies and watch the whole series a couple of times a year. I'm weird but I like some of the old Ernest movies (Jim Varney). Anything with Don Knotts or Mickey Rooney is good. I loved Where the Lilies Bloom too. My favorite chanel on TV is Turner Classic Movies. TCM keeps me paying the cable bill!

    We recently watched "The Croods". Really funny movie. We also love fern gully 1 and 2. "The Other Sister" was also a laugh riot!

    A good movie- old one is the Gnomemobile. Try watching the Shop Around the Corner

    I would recommend GOD'S NOT DEAD. This is a good movie with a good message. I will buy it when it comes out on DVD.

    My teen daughter spends lots of time in the sewing room with me. We watch lots of the old movies and I think she's better for it. They seem tame when compared to movies made today but if you watch them again you will appreciate them. Most of them I bought on Amazon for ~ $5 and we watch them over and over.

    Yours, Mine and Ours - Henry Fonda Lucille Ball
    Man's Favorite Sport - Rock Hudson Paula Prentiss
    Cary Grant movies - North by Northwest, Charade, To Catch a Thief, Father Goose, Operation Petticoat
    Hellfighters - John Wayne Jim Hutton (oilwell fire fighters)
    John Wayne westerns & war movies, Hatari
    Alfred Hitchcock - The Birds, Psycho, Vertigo, Rear Window (North by Northwest, To Catch a Thief)

    Some that aren't as old
    Freedom Writers
    Hotel Rwanda (some very violent scenes but a true story)
    The Boy in the Striped Pajamas
    The Intouchables (French with subtitles so you can't watch while sewing but such a good movie)
    A Good Year (one of my favorite movies)
    Best Exotic Marigold Hotel
    Under the Tuscan Sun
    Holes

    The Boy in the Striped Pajamas was a good movie but so depressing to me.

    Oh, I forgot about the Ernest movies. They are so funny.

    There is an old one I love, Enchanted April. Joan Plowright is in it. also the lady who now plays Delphine in Selfridges British show on PBS. She was thinner and had black hair with bangs but those same lovely light eyes.
