    Movies

    I need to rent some movies to watch for the Holidays. What was the last good movie you rented or bought? What would you recommended? I like comedies, drama, love stories, suspense or mystery.

    Thanks

    If you haven't already seen it Night at the Museum is a really great movie. If you are looking for a tear jerker type of movie...go with Simon Birch. It's a great movie.

    Log into the Netflix site and just browse the categories to see what you might find that is to your liking.

    I like just about ANY Christmas movie and like to watch them this time of year...I also like to read books that have a Christmas theme...I just read "Skipping Christmas" which that movie about the Kranks was based on. I haven't seen the movie.

    The movie is decent... but not something that I want to see over and over and over... it just seems to be another Christmas movie, nothing really stood out...

    I want to see Deck the Halls with Danny DeVito and Matthew Brodderick

    That would depend on what type of movies you like, but here are some of my own favourites.

    Transformers
    Pursuit of Happiness
    Damage (a little racy but I like the message in it)
    Escape From Sobibor
    X-Men=1,2,3
    Roots (not a movie but great mini- series)
    Terminator ( gotta love Arnold)
    Conan The Barbarian

    For me, holiday movies are all about the classics... at least classics in my little brain...

    A Christmas Story
    Meet Me in St. Louis
    Star Wars (all six back to back...)
    Lord of the Rings trilogy
    The Matrix trilogy
    Night at the Museum (best family movie in a long time)
    Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon
    Gone with the Wind (chick tradition in my family... we cook all day, watch football all afternoon and then send our husbands far far away by pulling out Scarlett...)
    Anything John Hughes (yes, I'm showing my age again...)
    Charlies Angles (so much fun...)
    Tombstone

    And when the kids finally eat themselves to sleep or you need to be reminded that you're a grown up...

    American Beauty also know as THE. GREATEST. MOVIE. OF. ALL. TIME!!

    Absolutely they are Holiday Classics!!! I received the whole set for Christmas!

    Plus, I simply LOVE LOVE LOVE the entire Star Wars series.. but seriously, who has time to watch six movies at one time unless you're off from work?!?

    I have been watching quite a few movies lately. My favorite is "Secondhand Lions". I have also really liked "Benny and Joon" and "Greencard".

    And what about Family Man?!? That's a great movie - even if Nicolas Cage is apart of the cast...

    you mean I'm not the only one who doesn't *get* Cage? I only like him in National Treasure

    Of Mice and Men is a good tear jerker

    for mega action and hotness check out Mr. & Mrs. Smith (yes that infamous film that destroyed the hollywood golden couple and birthed Bragelina) or The Island

    ooo and the Prestige blew my mind... great movie!
