Interesting that the gory, violent scenes weren't enough to keep you awake! They are what Tarantino is known for and why I have no interest whatsoever in his films.

Thanks for this, Kay. I haven't seen many of them either, and am intrigued by some of the older ones. I really enjoy The Holiday - if you haven't seen that, try to! It's a cute movie, and worth seeing for the house porn alone.

BTW - here's Ralphie from A Christmas Story, all grown up. :-)

Oh those beautiful eyes of his. What a handsome man he's become Cheryl!

I saw "The Coat of Many Colors" the other night on tv about Dolly's childhood and loved every minute of it. I'm not really a fan of Dolly, but it was so well done with Ricky Shroder playing her Dad of all people. Don't think I've ever cried harder in a movie than watching that little boy in "The Champ"

Well HELLO there, "Ralphie". My, have you changed! ~~~ Thanks for that bit of eye candy, Cheryl.

Thanks for the link, Kayelle. I may have seen all of about four or five of those 25. Himself and I definitely want to see "A Midwinter's Tale" since we really enjoy farce. Meanwhile, I've bookmarked that link to the movie list so that we can watch a couple of them during the cold, snowy winter - IF "cold" and "snowy" show up this winter at all!

Been really needing to laugh so we watched Over the Hedge last night. It's become one of our favorite animated films and both of us were either smiling or laughing out loud for nearly 2 hours.

R.J. and Hammy are just too, too much. Stella ain't half bad either.

I DVR'ed that and started to watch it the other night, and fell asleep. I was enjoying it, but was so tired that NOTHING could have kept me awake. I'll try again later today.

Kay and CG....yes, little Ralphie grew up quite nicely, I agree!

Joy. This was a good movie, based on a true story, about a struggling, single mother who invented the miracle mop. Great performances by Jennifer Lawrence and Robert de Niro. I enjoyed it.

Thanks for the review RF. Joy is on my list of feel good movies to see this season.
