We are getting our rec/meda room together today and I would love to sit and watch a movie tonight.

I am open to any movie genre other than horror.  No demons or paranormal.    I do like thrillers though. 

Some of your favorites?

Comedies

Romance

Thriller

Action

Whatever I don't see tonight, I will keep in mind for the future.

THANKS!

Gone With The Wind
Greatest Showman

My mind is a blank.  DH and like those too genres too and, like you, not interested in horror, etc.  I'll try to think of more.

YES, classics are good.   North by Northwest

I just can't think any right now.  Guess I'm still waking up. LOL!

Yes, yes, yes! 

Bride and Prejudice (the Indian version) would be crazy fun on a big screen with all the dance scenes. I'm till trying to talk my dh into a BIG TV, like 70" with a fireplace corner. Instead the man brings home a VACUUM CLEANER. 

Singing in the Rain

Casablanca

Baby Driver is great, great, great. I absolutely did not expect to like it but I loved it. It seems to hit the mark with a really wide range of people. It's an action film with some dark humor.

I'm one of the few Austen fans who doesn't care for this, so much so that I didn't even finish watching it. It's accurate and thorough bc they're practically reading the book 😄 Also it's six hours long if the OP isn't aware.

BBC actually did two versions of P&P.  while the 1995 (colin firth, Jennifer Ehle)  6 hour version is quite rich (they were spendy), in some ways I prefer the 1980 (David Rintoul, and Elizabeth Garvie) - is 4 1/2 hours.  My friend and I will toss back and forth things we like/don't-like about each version.  I don't think there is a perfect version.  I do chuckle at the line from the Laurence Olivier/Greer Garson version about having to be a mummy to be really dignified.

Will this be you and your spouse only? If there will be children present, how old are they?

Not sure yet!

Husband and I don't seem to like the same movies, but we will try to find something.  We agree on some comedies and some action movies.

I have seen all of those, and they are good, just more in the mood for a more recent movie right now.
