    Something a little different: Chocolat (with Juliette Binoche and Johnny Depp) and Amelie (in French but of course English subtitles, with Audrey Tautou). And let’s face it, I would still laugh out loud on my hundredth viewing in a row of Four Weddings and a Funeral (the movie of course – let’s not even think about what someone else is doing to it 🤐) So fun!

    Roman Holiday ~ best romance ever! Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck; ’nuff said.

    Chinatown ~ Jack Nicholson in his prime, fabulous 1930’s LA locales, costumes. It may be the perfect movie.

    Enjoy!

    Most of my favorites have been mentioned … I’m going to recommend “The Fifth Element” as a movie you could watch with brothers … I watched it with my husband when we were dating and he was so happy that I was watching it with me. Sci-fi is not really my thing but it’s a fun movie (Bruce Willis, Kevin Hart).

      OMG! My husband and I LOVE this movie and are constantly quoting it, especially the lines by Chris Tucker as Ruby Rod. It is a bit obscure but once you’ve seen it your life is never the same again – am I right??

        You’re so right! Thanks, I should have looked it up (Chris Tucker is great in this). I mean, this is not my usual genre at all, but I really like it!

    Hidalgo, Eastern Promises, A History of Violence, The Green Book. In short, ANYTHING Viggo Mortensen! Bonus points if he’s (at least) shirtless…
    Don’t judge me.

    Well, my all time favorite movie will always be The Quiet Man with John Wayne and Maureen O’Hara. It’s set in Ireland in the early 20th century and it’s a love story for the ages. It was filmed in a little town called Cong and my husband and I spent a wonderful week in that little town a few years ago. Most of the houses and other places where the filming was done are still there and you can even take a tour to see them all. If you like Howard Keel, then Seven Brides for Seven Brothers has to be on your list. If you like very well done period pieces, Sense and Sensibility is a must watch and any version of Pride and Prejudice even the original in B&W. There is even Pride and Prejudice and Zombies if you want some really lavish period costumes and sets AND a laugh at the same time. If you love the British humor then your new favorite Christmas movie will become Love Actually. The story line involving Colin Firth’s character and his holiday housekeeper makes me and my husband tear up. Every. Single. Time. The movie pushes ALL your feel buttons: happy, sad, angry, loss, love and regret. I have many more but lots have been mentioned by others posting before me. On a completely separate note – I just think what you do with your cat rescue and fostering is fantastic. We live on 14 acres and have 12 cats – 6 indoor and 6 outdoor – and all are rescues, many who started out as feral. Aren’t cats wonderful creatures? Happy Holidays to you and your family!!! especially the furry ones.

    This is Spinal Tap is the finest movie ever made.

    Coal Miner’s Daughter 2nd best.

    Mary Poppins and Sound of Music are tied for 3rd best.

    Sometimes a Great Notion is also fantastic.

    For some reason I am completely unable to explain, I also love Joe Dirt.

    Merry Christmas to you and Paul and all the darling kitties, past, present and future. God bless us, everyone.
