movie ideas


Recommended Posts

I think I am putting together a movie basket as a gift for a family....youngest child is 11, oldest is graduating college this spring. Please give me some titles that you think the family might enjoy. They need to be good, clean movies...older titles would be fun too. I am thinking of Indiana Jones as one idea....but looking for others too.

Yes to The African Queen - it is great! I think a "classics" basket is more apt to contain films the family won't already own - in addition to Queen (your drama) add"

The Great Race (comedy)

National Velvet (Elizabeth Taylor version - your kid's film but adults enjoy it too)

Singing in the Rain or another classic movie musical.


Friendly Persuasion and Roman Holiday also excellent films to gift!


If you want to add a more modern film, and a dash of animation, add a Hayao Miyazaki film like Spirited Away or Howl's Moving Castle.
