What Do You Like?

I've finally stepped into the 21st century and acquired a Netflix subscription. Now I need some movies to fill up my queue. I'm pretty current on recent movies but I didn't watch a lot of movies when I was growing up.

I just watched Sixteen Candles a couple of days ago. It was good but I don't think my life would have been changed if I'd have seen it when I was younger.

So, People, what are some of your favorites?

Some faves....

The Sting - Redford and Newman at their best, and a great, great movie

The Godfather (Parts I & II)

Once Upon a Time in America (Long version)

Driving Miss Daisy

The Shawshank Redemption - an absolutely must-see

Holes - yep, a kids movie, sure... but it goes beyond taht

O Brother, Where Art Thou? - made me really, really appreciate George Clooney's versatility - of course, until this, I didn't know he had any

Well...the Exorcist is scary but awesome and don't tell anyone, but I liked Smokey and the Bandit.

I know, I know....cheesy

Gone With The Wind - You have to see it at least once in your life.

Mrs Doubtfire - A feel good movie you can watch with the kids.

Thanks! You've given me some good ideas!

Joey, it's funny that you mention A Clockwork Orange - I started that last night as my first movie to watch online with Netflix. Haven't finished it yet though.
