Movies I Need to See

Just for Fun


The other night while doing laundry, Feed the Birds from Mary Poppins popped into my head for reasons I cannot even begin to fathom. Nonetheless, it reminded me that I still haven’t gotten around to seeing Saving Mr. Banks and that’s a shame, because I dearly love Emma Thompson movies. So that’s today’s Free for All Friday: the movies that I never seem to make time to sit down and watch already!

(In no particular order, as brought to you by my Amazon Watch List)

  1. Saving Mr. Banks
  2. Iron Man 3
  3. The Croods
  4. The Purge
  5. Monsters University
  6. Planes
  7. Despicable Me 2
  8. Austenland
  9. The Book Theif
  10. Frozen
  11. Brave
  12. Beautiful Creatures

Yes, I realize some of them have been out ridiculously long. I also realize that I’m in danger of losing my Disney fan card for not seeing Brave or Frozen yet. I’ve also heard that Beautiful Creatures was less than many hoped for, but it still looks like a nice popcorn flick if nothing else.

The strange thing is that I watch stuff all the time–but I’m usually multitasking while whatever is going on in the background and the majority of the movies on that list are ones I really want to just watch and enjoy. And that means making time for them when I don’t have a bunch of other things pulling at my attention.

Obviously I need to set up some sort of reward system to be able to catch up on my movie viewing. Maybe if I feel like I’ve “earned it” I can convince myself to slow down and take a movie break?

What movies are on your must-see list?

  1. You must, must see Frozen. Do it today. It’s an animated film that made me cry (and I didn’t cry during E.T.).

    On my “To See” list: 12 Years a Slave. The screenwriter, John Ridley, who won an Oscar for this film, spoke at my daughter’s college graduation. He gave a stellar speech, and now I must see his film.

    1. I always feel more invested in a film or show if I’ve met someone involved in it when I might have been utterly indifferent before-hand. For instance, our table neighbors last weekend were two of the actresses from the original Dark Shadows and I can admit to more than a little curiosity about it now.
