Help — Movie Suggestions!

Posted by Matty

Have you seen a good movie? Drop us a comment.

Thanks for all the great suggestions so far, keep ‘em coming.

More inside…

(yeah, I know this entry looks weird, but I’m testing the design for nancy’s honduras articles.)

So, on the outset, Netflix seems like a great deal. We’ve been Netflixing for several months – (in fact, you can see our current movie list in the left pane).

Here’s the thing. If you are an avid movie watcher (e.g. have no life, like me) you will burn through 6 movies a week. If you’re not familiar with Netflix, you build a big honkin’ list of movies that you want to see, and they send ‘em to you.

This is where you come in. Our list dwindles, and we need some good movie suggestions.

Have you seen any great (or even pretty good) movies lately? Do you have a secret passion for a truly horrible movie? Is there a movie that you watch once a year and want to share with us? Leave a comment to this thread and share your favorites with the world.

You might want to know what sorts of films we like. That doesn’t really matter. We like good stuff. It could be comedy, drama, foreign, horror…anything really.

    I just watched “Run Lola Run” for about the 43rd time, and I still love it so! And I could watch “Amelie” about a million times. I really haven’t seen anything notable recently that I can think of . . . mainly because I’m stuck on the Olympics.

    Hey yous…Nance, I met you at a knitting meet.up a few months back. I live in the Denton area, and haven’t been able to make it back down there. Are you going to SNB tomorrow? I don’t know what I’m doing.

    Anyway, here are some movie suggestions:
    The Tripletts of Bellville
    Girl With a Pearl Earring
    Dirty Pretty Things
    21 Grams
    The Station Agent
    The Man From Elysian Fields
    Casino (I had never seen this movie and rented it recently…pretty good, but tooo gory with the mob hits)
    Pieces of April
    Veronica Guerin
    Owning Mahony
    The Human Stain
    The Megdalene Sisters
    House of Sand and Fog
    Kill Bill Vol 1
    Kill Bill Vol 2
    Japanese Story
    Spider Man 1
    Cold Mountain

    There should be a couple on the list that you haven’t seen. I have not recommended any that I didn’t like. These are the ones I’ve seen in the last 6 weeks or so that I’ve liked.

    ‘K, that’s all for now.

    I loved Run Lola Run too!
    Wow, the others have such great movies. I was gonna say something lame like…
    Princess Bride or Muppet Treasure Island. I watch those all the time.
    You can do what my husband and I are doing (heh-heh-heh)…go to imdb.com and pull up one of their lists. We are trying to watch the Academy Award winners. But there are lots of other lists too.
