Well, I like OLD movies, so here's a few. First of all, TCM is running a six movie marathon on New Year's Eve of The Thin Man movies with Myrna Loy and William Powell. I have had a little crush on Myrna Loy since I was a boy (and my beautiful wife has hair that is exactly the same style she wore in the 30's). If you like funny movies with clever banter, these might be for you.

I also love The Big Sleep with Bogart.

Oh, and one other... I was at the Goodwill store the other day and picked up a still wrapped VHS of Breaking Away. I've seen it a dozen times, but for 49 cents, I couldn't pass it up. We watched it again last night. What a wonderful movie.

There are many more but these come to mind.


The Shawshank redemption, with Morgan Freeman and Tim Robbins. Excellent, much watch movie.

Man on Fire, my favorite Denzel Washington movie. I love when justice wins!

Seven, with Brad Pitt and Morgan Freeman again. Great actor!

Forest Gump, of course.

Saving Private Ryan, another excellent Tom Hanks movie.

The silence of the Lambs. Jodie Foster.

I'll have to make it to see Dunkirk. Aside from the comments here, there are many who speak very highly of it.

I am on the outside on Dunkirk, not a fan.

Did take kids to Ohio State Reformatory, where Shawshank was filmed. One of my favorite movies, kids hadn't seen it but enjoyed visiting the prison.

Just be sure to pay attention, as there is a lot going on in the movie.

Somehow this one snuck by me for a few years, but I saw "The Book Thief" a few days ago. The young lady in the lead role (Sophie Nelisse) was absolutely wonderful. A ten hanky ending for me I'm afraid, but still thought it a beautiful film.

I haven't seen Gran Torino yet. They just showed Josey Wales a few nights ago.

Other Squint Eastwood movies I enjoyed were: Pale Rider, High Plains Drifter, Unforgiven, and Firefox.
