NR was that the night the screen blew down. :wink:

Lots of good movies mentioned here. Just loved Second hand Lions and Hildago but one I get a kick out of is Holes. It reminds me of rancher, Jon Voight has a line that goes" Once upon a time their was a magical place where it nevers rains. Thee end." :cowboy:

Second hand lions is a must for everyone. And another one our family likes is October Sky. About 3 kids trying to get out of a mining town to go to college. We have girls night out once a month if we can, and we go to the show. Only rule we have is no blood and guts violence. We liked Bringing Down the House too. Mona Lisa Smile was kinda okay.. Calender Girls is cute, you can take your Mom or Grandma to that..

Secondhand Lions is my husband's favorite movie. He could watch it over and over, and he does! I don't have enough fingers on my hands to count how many times he's watched it. Me, I liked Twister, Armageddon, and The Gladiator. Those I can watch over and over.

If you want a demonstration in standing for principle in the face of opposition, you might want to watch Mel Gibson in "Ransom", if you haven't already. It's fairly old. Not the greatest for kids, maybe.

Probably Finding Nemo, was a sit on the edge of your seat movie. I was sure nervous he wouldn't make it out of the fish bowl. (also did you see all the water?) :lol:

I heartily agree with you that 'Second Hand Lions' is one terrific movie. I bought it for my granson. "Seabiscuit", YES!! Our daughter got it for us for Christmas a year ago. She knew we would just love it. I was in town at the furniture store and they had one of the wide screen digital tv's and Seabiscuit was on with scenes that weren't in the original movie. It was sharp and crisp and just like being there, the digital tv was so good. I did feel sorry for ole' Seabiscuit. In reality, they ran his legs off, hauling him all over the country like they did.

Hildago is another thumbs up. We also like Quigley Down Under, (our grandson has watched that one so many times, he can recite the lines while the movie is playing.) Last Stand at Saber Creek is another favorite with Tom Selleck. Heck, Tom Selleck is a favorite!!!!!

No one mentioned "A Walk in the Clouds" with Kuneau Reeves. Excellent movie. (I think it is a classic.) Another good one is "Shining Through" with Michael Douglas and Melanie Griffith.

So many people liked 'A River Runs Through It." Not me, I didn't care for that movie.

Of course, Lonesome Dove and Dances with Wolves are both wonderful. I really like Kurt Russell, but Val Kilmer stole Tombstone away from Kurt Russell. I haven't seen Val Kilmer in another movie I liked though. Same with Woody Harralson. He made the best cowboy in "The Cowboy Way", (another favorite movie) but I haven't liked him in anything else.

my five year old saw john wayne's "cowboys" when he was barely 2 and imagine my horror (and my hubby's amusement) when this 2 year old recited the "dirty, mean old son-of-a-bitch" line in front of his god-fearing grandmother :shock:
other personal favorites is definitely Second hand lions, 8seconds, friday night lights, pirates of the caribbean, tombstone!!
last movie i saw in a theater was "The Passion of the Christ"...on easter of last year...cried within 5 minutes of the movie starting and didn't stop until after i got home...
just bought another tear jerker...The Notebook....beautiful love story!! don't we all wish we could find a love that strong and true! :lol:
Love wins....ennis, montana....June 14, 2003!!!
Never forget!
