    Am agreeing with much of the above, but did not see About Time or Sliding Doors listed. I LOVE THEM. Also, if you haven’t watched much or any of The Crown on Netflix, don’t do it unless you are prepared to fall in love with Prince Charles in Season 3. Crazy, I know…but ’tis the season!

      I listed Sliding Doors! It’s my favorite movie. And it’s what started my undying love for John Hannah. I also just posted on someone else’s comment about how much I loved About Time.

    Two favorites: Twister and Close Encounters. Most cringeworthy viewing experience: watching Pulp Fiction with my elderly mother and father-in-law in a movie theater where there was no escape. My husband suggested I take them, because he thought it was great and they would enjoy it. Yes, Pulp Fiction. I eventually forgave him, but it was excruciating at the time.

    I just watched this for the first time; Racing with the Moon. Sean Penn was like 14. BUT includes Elizabeth McGovern (love her) and she was like 12 – LOL.

    If you’ve never watched, try The Idolmaker. Really young Peter Gallagher. I LOVE this movie.

    Joe v the volcano-Idiocracy-Pride and Prejudice but only with Colin Firth most of the Bourne movies-one not so much (can’t remember which one?) Some James Bond-The graduate for the line about plastic-then fantastic now a death knell. The Christmas Movie-the one with the leg lamp and the dogs devouring the turkey? The Martian–definitely-Star Wars-and a thousand more. Merry Christmas to everyone and a wonderful 2020.

    ‘Sweet Land’ – ‘mail order bride’ travels to Midwest. ‘The Descendants’ – George Clooney. ‘Bridesmaids’ – no explanation necessary. ‘Hell or High Water’ – sleeper nominated for Best Picture 2017. ‘Homeward Bound’ – the original and the remake (music in the remake is outstanding). ‘Wuthering Heights’ – 1970 – again, the music is heartbreaking.

    In the UK we love The Sound of Music with Julie Andrews (still makes me cry when I singalog) (come to think of it, it makes most of my family cry when I sinalong !). Mary Poppins with Julie Andrews, and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. So much joy !

    Wow! thanks for all of this-reminded me of all the movies I loved and own. Bookcases full of DVDs cause Husband would not go to movie theater-so pi**ed off I bought them! That’ll teach him-right? since he hated spending money. Ha!

    If you like heists and suspense, The Italian Job is good. An oldie heist film I liked was Topkapi, however the heroine was a bit seductive.

    Second Hand Lions is a great feel good family movie with some quirky twists. Love Michael Caine and Robert Duval in this.

    Harvey is a happy film for me. Just love James Stewart and I’d love to have his character’s carefree attitude.

    It Happened One Night, Reds, The Quiet Man, Oh Brother Where Art Thou, Christmas in Connecticut (these are not holiday movies – just my favorites with some holiday thrown in), Outlaw Josey Wales, Coal Miner’s Daughter, The Waterboy (yes – Adam Sandler), Caddyshack (dancing groundhog and “that’s OLL I need!!”), Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, Kiss Me Kate, Blazing Saddles, any 1930’s movie with Cary Grant – ANY.

    Love Actually, of course. Because Colin Firth! And Hugh Grant, but mostly Colin Firth, especially at the end when he goes to Portugal for Aurelia. And Alan Rickman and Emma Thompson and Rowan Atkinson making me cry laughing, and a very young and uncredited Andrew Lincoln before TWD made him a household name. Watching it always makes me feel better about my husband, lol.

    Rear Window (well, a h of those old Alfred Hitchcock movies really), Sixteen Candles (watched that over and over with my DD when she was 16), Die Hard, Christmas Vacation (because our oldest son and his friend could almost quote the whole movie), Love Actually, Four Weddings and a Funeral. That’s all I can think of for now.

    The Italian Job is a great heist movie. Big fan of Fried Green Tomatoes, Steel Magnolias, and A League of Their Own. I can’t pass by Seven Brides for Seven Brothers if it’s on.

    I’m a big fan of old movies and although there are so many that I love, I never tire of watching the Thin Man series with Myrna Loy and William Powell. Beautiful period pieces, spectacular clothing, cars, and apartment decorating. And they are ALWAYS drinking cocktails, morning, noon and night. I missed my era.

    For holiday movies I love The Ref, Home for the Holidays (Ann Bancroft and Robert Downey Jr. And Dylan McDermott. Come on.) and Bad Moms Christmas. I saw that for the first time this summer and it is absolutely one of the funniest movies I’ve ever seen. And of course The Holiday bc who doesn’t want to house swap with the cutest little British cottage and end up with a hot guy?

    Grease 2, When Harry Met Sally, Sliding Doors (actual favorite), Moonlight Mile, Shopgirl, The Last Unicorn. I’m forgetting a ton.

    I will say that anytime Enough with JLo comes on I have to stop everything and watch. ‘You have a divine animal right to protect your life and the life of your offspring’. Stop. Can’t take it.
