Favorite Movies

So my H has been teasing me lately because there are so many classic/ widely viewed movies that I have never seen. (Star Wars, Independence Day, Four Weddings and a Funeral, Dr. Zhivago, Indiana Jones, Steel Magnolias, Fried Green Tomatoes, etc)

So help me create a list of must watch movies. What are your favorites? Any classics that shouldnt be missed?

Help a girl out!

    Steel Magnolias is good! My favorite movie is Breakfast at Tiffany's, but I love Audrey Hepburn. Sabrina and Roman Holiday are really good too. 

    Otherwise, I'm not much a movie buff. I'd much rather watch TV. Short attention span I guess. FI hates it haha.

    Ok so, some of these are newer, but I feel that they merit some recognition :)

    Legends of the Fall

    Inglourious Bastards

    Pulp Fiction

    DJango Unchained (I'm a Tarantino fan apparently)

    The Vacation movies.  All of them. I hadn't seen Christmas Vacation up until a few years ago.

    Thelma and Louise

    Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story (these are so random... I apologize)

    The Quick and The Dead

    I'm sure there's more, I just can't think of them right now!

    Shadowlands, because the proposal scene is amazing and the only thing that equals it is the wedding night.

    My favorites are Fried Green Tomatoes, Steel Magnolias, The Shawshank Redemption, Sliding Doors, and Gone in 60 Seconds. And anything 80s Brat Pack related or Jay and Silent Bob related. 
    What did you think would happen if you walked up to a group of internet strangers and told them to get shoehorned by their lady doc?~StageManager14

    @addiecake I read the book and loved it. I am so scared to watch the movie because I have heard it so different.

    Ooooh, moviessss, yes.

    You NEED to see Steel Magnolias, that's one of my all-time favorites. It's a tear jerker & a total chick flick, but it's definitely something I will watch literally any time it's on. I think it's on Netflix. 

    The Green Mile is another tear jerker, but it's awesome. Probably my favorite movie.

    FI would kill me if he knew I was blabbing this- but I recently got him into Divergent and the Hunger Games.

    He watched the original Hunger Games with me last week, and made me rent the Catching Fire two days later.  Now, he's waiting until March 6th, when Mockingjay comes On Demand.

    And this morning, I guess there was a trailer for the second Divergent movie on TV- he was hooting and hollering from the living room that it's coming out on March 20th.

    A grown man excited about YA movies- I love it, lol.  But yeah, those are interesting movies- you might like them :)

    Christmas Vacation
    How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days
    The Princess Bride

    Also, not sure I'd label it as a classic but, I seriously love the movie Don't Tell Mom the Babysitter's Dead. I have seen it a thousand times and still love watching it.

    Barefoot in the Park is one of my favorite movies and I second PPs suggestion of Steel Magnolias, it's a great movie.

    Fried Green Tomatoes is so good!  (I've read the book and own the movie). 

    We watched Shawshank Redemption last night.  If you've never seen it, it's definitely worth a watch.

    If you're into period pieces, the mid 90's Pride & Prejudice mini-series with Colin Firth is amazing

    So I started to read The Princess Bride and thought the book was so stupid I couldnt finish it.

    Am I the only one who hates this book (thus why I wont see the movie)? Do I need to turn in my ovaries?

    Also, Duchess with Keira Knightley is very good, not critically acclaimed or anything but very good.

    I'd still give the movie a try. I've read the book, and honestly think that the movie has the stronger writing. The movies framing device works better, there isn't the weird stuff about the omitted paragraphs and it has fucking Cary Elwes. It is silly, but not quite as out there as the book.
