Best movies to watch!


Gangster Squad I watched last week. If I had three thumbs I'd point them all up for that movie and for Lawless which I just finished watching. Both excellent movies, great filming, direction, drama and action of the graphic and violent kind. Not that I'm into violence but when done right and it fits the story I'm all for it and these two movies had it spot on!

I watched 42 a few days ago, the Jackie Robinson story, first African American baseball player to play in the big leagues. Good story and a decent watch, but the film lacked something, like a good director.

Anyone have any good movie insights, suggestions?

Office Space

My Big Fat Greek Wedding - this was in theaters for over 11 months

But I think my favorite is The Wizard of Oz.

Braveheart, Forest Gump, Shawshank Redemption.

Secondhand Lions is probably the best movie that most people haven't seen.

I didn't care for Braveheart....too violent....but Shawshank is great...as well as Secondhand Lions....and....Tom Hanks can't make a bad movie....

The "Babe" movies were the best. (The little piggy, not the ball player)

Oh yeah, the movie, "Gordy," was good, too.
