  1. I'm looking for more movies about women advancing in the workplace. Preferably historic films with real life ties like Hidden Figures, or movies with women in lead roles. I just finished watching Hidden Figures and I need more films like this in my library. I also loved Good Girls in Revolt an Amazon tv series about women changing the workplace in the press industry in early '70s late '60s, GGR was written by Lynn Povich and based on true events. Thank you for your help, looking forward to viewing your suggestions! :)
  2. I have been couch bound all day and am getting antsy. Any recommendations for some good movies or TV shows? Too bad Outlander isn't out yet. I like just about every category from Documentary - Science Fiction. Some things I have seen and loved to give you examples of my taste... Olympus Has Fallen (I love dramas like this) Arthur BBC Merlin BBC Breaking Bad (surprisingly I LOVED this show) (I looked at Weeds and couldn't stand that one) Anne of Green Gables Little Women Pride and Prejudice North and South Cranford Wives and Daughters Emma Sense and Sensibility Once Upon a Time Once Upon a Time in Wonderland Walking Dead Blackfish - Documentary about Sea World Dances with Wolves The Patriot Roswell Sleepless in Seattle The First Wives Club
  3. I don't know what it is about this time of year, but I get a hankering to watch Christmas Movies. I love the old favorites, mixed up with a few cheesy feel goods and everything in between. What are some of your favorites? I watched White Christmas already, still need to watch It's a Wonderful Life. I just saw Christmas Shoes and the Christmas Blessing the other day. Another fun one was The Christmas Lodge. After looking over my Netflix activity, here are some more I've seen: Dear Santa Lovestruck: The Musical Jack Frost
  4. I've been thinking a lot lately about the influence of movies in our lives, and especially our children. We watch fictitious representations of reality and expect not to be subliminally influenced. We see how love is a matter of seeing a beautiful women and don't see the investment it takes to make a marriage work. We see violent, deadly CIA agents as heroes, and hear how these people talk and think. Doesn't all this effect the way we perceive the world? And are these influences positive? What do think? Are movies positively influencing our children? Or negatively? Both? Can we regulate which movies our kids see to limit them to ones that will make our children better or more conscientious citizens? Any ideas?
  5. Wow . . . It may be too early to start discussing any spoilers, but this is the first movie I have attended in ages where I did not hear a peep from the audience, and at the end of a Saturday afternoon matinee in a packed theater, the audience sat in complete silence to watch the credits roll. I do think someone in the producer end of things overrode Spielberg-- it looked to me like the ending had been shot, and then some Hollywood type said, "No no no, we need aplashier ending!" so a different ending was tacked on before the final speech. When you watch I think you'll know what I mean whether you agree with my assessment or not. My only regret is that I do think it will be a few years yet before my guys are going to be capable of sitting through and appreciating this movie-- maybe upper logic state/early rhetoric stage. I was pleased by spending my time watching this one-- I enjoyed Argo, too, but this one was even better, IMHO.
  6. So, what do you think it is? I had to combine different versions of movies in my poll, but if you feel strongly about one, or if your movie isn't here, please let me know!
  7. Here are a few I have seen and like: Gone With the Wind Hunger Games The Notebook Courageous The Sound of Music Expelled ETA: I am getting discouraged about the lack of recent movies that are clean and good.
  8. and you cannot wait until your kids are old enough to watch them? I am not talking about great classic movies like To Kill a Mockingbird, but movies that they might not watch otherwise. I am watching Fifth Element right now with my eldest.:lol:
  9. Rough day so DH went to get me a movie what should I have him get? Must be in the 99 cent section at Blockbuster. Like: sad or funny romance or not dislike: gratuitous s*x or cursing sci-fi Suggestions?
  10. Mostly I'm looking for movies that are appropriate for ages 9 and under. I was trying to think of a bunch yesterday but having major brain freeze. Here are only a couple for me. I'd love to come up with a huge list. I have many, but I can't think of them at the moment :) - Because of Winn Dixie. We loved the book, and the movie was fun and sweet. - Sound of Music. A classic, but also a great movie with wonderful music. Funny thing is I never got hooked on this movie until I was an adult. - My Neighbor Totoro / Kiki's Delivery Service / Ponyo, etc. (all of his movies) - Anne of Green Gables series. Love the books, love the movies. The movies really remind me of my childhood. I am from Canada, and they always played these between Christmas and New Year's on tv. I looked forward to it every year! ETA some more that my kids came up with: - The Parent Trap (old and new versions) - Home Alone series (at Christmas, we love this) - Polyanna - we love sweet, old classic movies. - Meet Me In St. Louis - Singing in the Rain - Heidi - Secret Garden - A Little Princess - Annie - Harry Potter series - The Muppet movie (new one) - The Music Man (old one) - Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory (we like both) Please add your favorites!
  11. My youngest is dyslexic. She is never going to read classic literature. I am looking for "best" movie versions of classic literature for her to watch. I'm especially looking for movie versions of classic plays because those were really meant to be watched rather than read. I'd also like to see negative recommendations - like "make sure you don't use the 19xx version of xxxx because it was not true to the original" or "because the acting was horrible."
  12. It seems that there is a "bias" against resurrected threads? Is that true? I see a lot of threads on movies, and wonder what people think of having a series of separate movie rating polls. Each poll would have a scale (say 1 to 10 because I think 1 to 5 is too restrictive :)) for people to rate the movie, and in the thread itself people could expand on their review if desired. Associated with this might be a master thread of links to all of the movies that have been reviewed to date. This would involve resurrecting such threads a lot, though. If you like this idea, what do you think of also including a set of poll options for people to rate the appropriate age? The age scale might be a bit tricky, but age appropriateness also comes up a lot.
  13. What are your favorite foreign films? Dh and I love foreign films and want to introduce more to our children too. I know there are so many we haven't seen or heard about yet. If your favorites are suitable for children please make note of it and we'll check to see if our library has it. :bigear::lurk5::bigear:
  14. In the past couple months we've watched The Blind side, Gifted Hands, and Freedom Writers. All three have been superb movies at inspiring both my already dedicated middle son and my fairly lazy youngest son AND they've provided some deep family conversations about life and the way this world tends to operate. I've really enjoyed both the movies and the conversations thereafter. Besides recommending all of these (if anyone is looking) are there others I should add to our netflix queue? In the further past we've also watched Hotel Rwanda, Slumdog Millionaire and various documentaries about self-made people like George Washington Carver. The Killing Fields is in our queue. The teen years can be such rewarding years when it comes to in depth conversations... I wish we didn't have to let them fly away so quickly.
  15. What is your list of movies/plays everyone should be familiar with to be culturally literate? I know this may vary depending on your country, your tv/movie watching habits, and other beliefs, but I'm just curious about which ones may come up most often. I'm trying to have my kids watch movies I think everyone should see and I'm looking to see what I may have forgotten that I want to add to the list. I try to let/make them watch a movie on Fridays of my choice because it is our arts day for school. Some of the movies I think they should see will need to wait until they are older and in upper middle or high school, so I'm not only looking for a list of kids' movies. So far, we have watched or it's on my list for later- Mary Poppins Oliver! Annie Pirates of Penzance A few Shirley Temple movies A Wonderful Life Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (original) Ghostbusters Little Shop of Horrors Singing in the Rain 10 Commandments Wizard of Oz Charlie Brown Specials Schindlers List Fraggles- (ok that's just for me! ;)) A few Muppet shows Star Wars Mr Smith Goes to Washington Several adaptions of plays by Shakespeare- either film or play versions I'm sure there are plenty more that I haven't thought of yet! We might not see everything, but I'd like them to be culturally literate and be able to maintain conversations and understand jokes, satire, and other allusions in movies and books. This list is separate from my books they need to read list.
  16. I tried searching but had no luck. Please tell me what you think are the don't miss movies or documentaries for any time period. Or please point me to where this has already been answered. :001_smile: Last year we watched the John Adams miniseries and it engendered a lot of questions and a desire to learn more in my eldest. Not so much the younger two, but they did enjoy the series. ;) I would like to incorporate many more this year. Thanks so much! Rhea
  17. I thought that it might be useful to make a list of movies with foreign language tracks that are widely available in the US. You can find more and more dvds with Spanish and French tracks. But what about German, Russian, Japanese, etc. I'd especially like comments about the appropriateness of the movie for different ages. If we organize replies for different languages, it might make it even easier to comb through.
  18. I was laughing at the Pocahontas/Avatar similarities. I think the same thing about Doc Hollywood and Cars. Any others come to mind?
  19. We're using Sonlight Core 6 (6 and 7th grade boys next year) and would love a list of videos to try to incorporate into our studies. Thanks, Jennifer
  20. My queue is running low. I like indies, Bollywood, offbeat. Mainstream is okay, too. I recently saw and loved "Bella" "Waitress" "Lars and the Real Girl" Coming today is "Everything is Illuminated" What else is good?
  21. I have thought of "Glory," and "Gone With the Wind." What other movies are there about the Civil War that I could show my kids aged 13 and under? Thanks!
  22. I just took my 10 year old dd to see this. It was really, really cute! She was going to just go with her aunt and cousin, but I decided to tag along. I am glad I did because - yes - I will admit it - I enjoyed the movie. It is rated G and didn't have anything offensive in it. It was a great way to spend a rainy Saturday.
  23. I just finished watching this movie this morning. What can I say? I have two small kids. So I record things off of HBO and take a week to get through a movie that came out two years ago. BUT my point.... is Dr. Nicholas Garrigan a real person? Or a fictional character created in order to tell the story from the perspective of an outsider looking in? I tried to start a Google search, but haven't gotten too far due to aforementioned small kids. My next trip to Borders, I'll try to find the book and see if it offers any answers. But I figured that as long as I was poking around the board for a minute that it might be worth asking. (and can you tell the impression that this movie made on me??????) Thanks for much in advance!
