    I have a free Redbox movie code to use for my birthday. Any one have a recommendation. We do not go out to movies much..so few seem to be worth the money! I know sex and violence sells, but for me, not so much!

    don't know if you are looking for new movies or old, we just watched Marty (from the 50's) with Ernest Borgnine. What a great story, good acting, and it won 4 Oscars.

    watch the Harry Potter movies, in order. Pick your favorite actor (Robert Redford), or go to IMBD movie database to research oldies but goodies, for example, search for Charlie Chaplin or Jane Fonda, or Hugh what's his name....

    "Dr. Zhivago" if you want vintage. I can watch that anytime.

    My vote for recent is "Secretariat" - I went to see that 3 times at the theater - wonderful, well made and clean entertainment.

    I recently watched Burlesque with Cher. It does a good job of showing what the old shows like that were and I love musicals. If you like drama the Lincoln Lawyer was quite good also.

    Pride and Prejudice - the Kiera Knightley version - is my movie of choice right now.

    What kind of movie are you looking for?

    The one movie that surprised me as being very good was Avatar. I watched it with the feeling I wouldn't like it at all but I sure was wrong. Great movie.

    Oh that was really good, and I didn't think I'd like it either. Good suggestion!

    I just watched The Proposal - a romantic comedy, easy viewing and enjoyable
    My favorite all time movie is The Third Man - an oldie with Orson Welles and Joseph Cotton
    For a multi part movie - nothing beats Colin Firth's Pride and Prejudice

    Actually, My mother, age 95, remembers that time with the King and Wallace Simpson and his speech problem. It was very similar to my father's stutter. So that show made it even more informative for me. Also my father was left handed and had to change to right handed and that's when he started to stutter. Just some totally uninteresting information here. Edie
