Amy . . .

What would you like to know? I am fun, but crazy. I have a most perfect husband, and 2 cats named Samson and Delilah. We are presently working on adopting a little girl from China and have a separate blog for that. I am a Christian and am working on a better relationship with him. I live in the Atlanta area and love sharing stories with people. I am also a pediatric nurse and I love it! I love to talk and meet new people and I love Disney Cruising

Okay, you will not believe this but when I got married there were some important movies I had never seen. Michael is a huge movie buff and worked at Blockbuster so he had a great collection Some of the movies he has shown me since getting married have been the Star Wars movies and even Indiana jones. The other day we watched Bull Durham and I liked it. I invite you to share with me classic movies that I HAVE to see. I will let you know if I have seen them or not. Perhaps Michael will join in and share the ones I have not seen. Come on, share the best movies with me! Come back as much as you want! If they sound interesting, I might even make a list!

But at least I have seen Shag, have you?

You listed Shag, I'm not sure I can top that.

An Officer and a Gentelman and A walk to Remember. These are two of my favorite movies. While on my trip to Mexico last month a frined of ours put a movie in Spanish that I had never seen. The name of the movie is Elsa and Fred. HBO is showining it this month but you may find it a the video store. I will be subtitled but trust me it's totally worth it.

I have not seen An Officer and A Gentleman but A Walk to Remember is my favorite movie ( up there tied with the Notebook) It was the movie we watched our first Valentines Day after we were married

Annie said...

Batman Begins
To Kill a Mockingbird (the movies good, but the book is better)
12 Angry Men
and an assortment of chick flicks!

amy said...

Annie, the only one of those I have seen is Radio. And Michael can tell you that I literally cried from the moment he was on the screen until the credits.

I hope MIchael is reading these

Bed of Roses and The Notebook are great.

And I would be remiss if I did not mention the movie that my roommates and I used to watch on Marathon Wednesdays our sophomore year at UU, Reality Bites;)

erin said...

Ohh, fun question! Let's see:

Singin' in the Rain
The Princess Bride (you've probably seen this, though)
Vertigo and Rear Window(Hitchcock films are great)
Young at Heart (with Doris Day and Frank Sinatra--SO good! I also like several other Doris Day movies--Pillow Talk, Send Me No Flowers, Please Don't Eat the Daisies)
About a Boy

Susan said...

Oh my goodness....some of the ones listed here I wouldn't consider "classic"..because they seem more recent to me.

I made DH see Mary Poppins, West Side Story, and Gone with the Wind before I'd marry him. (it really wasn't THAT conditional) ;-)

I commented to someone the other day that I have never seen an Indiana Jones movie...but feel like I should.

I'd add:

Goodbye Girl
Silver Streak
Mrs. Doubtfire
Patch Adams
All that Jazz

Here's kind of a fun website of classic movies listed in alphabetical order. They start in the early 1900's and go through the 90's.

amy said...

My friends used to watch Reality Biyes at UU as well!

I have not seen anything with Sinatra, HOosiers, Vertigo, All that Jazz or Rear window

YOu guys are great!

Amy said...

Oh yeah, you definitely have to watch Rear Window, it's one of my all time faves. It will have you on the edge of your seat!

I'm a chick flick kind of girl so I'll have to go with:
Steel Magnolias
Notting Hill
My Best Friend's Wedding
The Wedding Singer
Hope Floats
Forget Paris
Sixteen Candles

Forrest Gump
Stand By Me
City Slickers
That Touch of Mink
To Catch a Thief
The Bishop's Wife
Arsenic and Old Lace (love Carey Grant!!)
An American in Paris
The Breakfast Club

OK, so I think I've taken up enough space, I hope I've named some you haven't seen! There's a lot of good stuff, usually older, out there!

Amy said...

Oh Amy, you need to watch Hoosiers because that was filmed about 20 miles from my house!!

And I am a huge Steve McQueen fan and I love watching The Great Escape, even though it is sad.

You've been on my heart lately and in my prayers. I hope you're doing okay!

Major Bear Hug sent your way!

That sounds familiar - my husband of 5 years still does double takes when I say I haven't seen a certain movie - like it is so shockingly unreal at this point in our marriage. I love chick flicks - Overboard is my favorite -but I have to recommend The Rock with Nick Cage! It rocks! (hahaha)

I'm not really a movie person, but I did enjoy the Back to the Future series. And I loved my Great Big Fat Greek Wedding! :~D
