What movies do you think everyone simply MUST watch, because they are so moving and meaningful, or just plain good fun movies? I have NetFlix and I'm always open to new suggestions. Here's what I think you ladies might be interested in.
Kevin Costner and Elijah Wood as father and son in the 70's with 2 plots. The father is dealing with PTSD from Vietnam, and the son and daughter are having to deal with a group of bullies. I cry every. single. time. I watch this movie and so does everyone I've ever watched it with. From my badazz construction worker cousin to big ole cops and firefighters, there are no dry eyes in the end of this movie.
True autobiography of an impoverished family in Ireland.
It's in Spanish so there are subtitles. This is the ultimate faerie tale, but SO not for kids! It's pretty powerful to me, it really hit a lot of emotion.
The Nativity Story.
It's the best put together movie of Jesus' birth I've ever seen, but I've only seen like 2 or 3 cuz this isn't my usual topic for movies. lol I don't normally go for the Biblical stuff, but this one was VERY good.
COOL Jack The Ripper movie with Johnny Depp!
Waking Ned Devine.
Hilarious movie about people in a tiny rural Irish town---Mostly old people, like only 3 young adults and 1 child. The old people all play the lottery and finally one of them won it. But he died of a heart attack with the winning ticket in his hand, so his friends dreamed up a plan of pretending to be him to claim the prize money and share it with the whole town. Non-stop laughing.
I could go on and on, I love movies. How about ya'll??
