Movie Suggestions?

As we sit here and watch the Auburn VS Oregon game (Go Ducks!) we're updating our Netflix queue. We can't find a single movie (or Television series) that looks interesting.

Any suggestions?

  2. Lol, before I started watching it, I thought it'd be dumb, but it's actually enjoyably funny (in my opinion). Do you do instant watch at all? Psych is fun to just sit down and watch an episode or two.

  3. I haven't been to a movie in so long, I can't help you here. I've found the movies to be really disappointing lately. Maybe try some classics. Barefoot In The Park is a good one. And Marty, with Ernest Borgnine, is one of my favorites.

  4. Depends on what you like. I've just gone through all 12 seasons of Murder, She Wrote. My daughter and I watched Veronica Mars and are now watching Buffy: The Vampire Slayer and Roswell. I've also set up Xena: Warrior Princess and Young Riders for her. Hubby was happy to see they have the first season of Undercover Boss up. I liked the first season of Missing, but got disinterested in the second season after they revamped the show. Those are all on instant streaming if that is how you are watching.

  5. Our internet is so slow, because of where we live, we can't do the streaming video. I mean, we can, but it's a study in frustration because it gets hung up every five minutes downloading more. Netflix has actually raised their prices for people like us because they do want everyone to go to the VOD. :( Wish we could! All of these are good suggestions! Thanks.

  6. I don't watch many movies but we watched Blind Side recently and it was really good. I loved Into the Wild because it was thought provoking but it's not a feel-good movie. Lars and the Real Girl was good, but weird. It has some pretty funny parts but is more about mental illness, family, and a community coming together to help a guy out. I LOVE the Firefly series and the Serenity movie that ends the story. O Brother, Where art Thou? was good. 12 Monkeys, Everything is Illuminated, Secondhand Lions, Napoleon Dynamite, Stranger than Fiction, Elf, 50 First Dates, My Big Fat Greek Wedding (one of my very very favorites - so funny!), Big Fish, Little Women, The Green Mile, Chocolat, Get Smart!, Hidalgo, 40 Year Old Virgin, the Narnia movies. (I just went through my Netflix account and saw what I'd rated well.) Oh, and Wild Horse Redemption if you haven't already seen it.

    I'm so glad I can read your blog again! Thank you! Now to get caught up...

  7. Holy Cow, Andrea--thank you!! Some of those are my favorites, too. I have not seen Wild Horse Redemption...I haven't even heard of it. What the hay?!?

  8. I loved Lars and The Real Girl too. And also The Station Agent. They weren't movies I would have picked on my own but Netflix recommended them. I also enjoyed The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. I don't usually watch subtitled movies but it was so intriguing the subtitles became a moot point.

  9. "Wild Horse Redemption" was filmed at the Canon City correctional facility - which is also Colorado's short-term holding for wild horses (some from Wyoming, too, at least). They have the inmate training program. I haven't seen it ... keep saying I'm going to, know I should. If you watch it, let us know! (I do know there's a horse featured in the film ... Samson, I think, is his name? ... who has since found a home.)
