Movie Recommendations

Hi!
I have been gifted two glorious nights with no children. I have not seen an adult movie in the movies in YEARS. I have four which I am leaning toward tomorrow: Noah (controversial I know but I haven't ruled it out), Monuments Men, The Grand Budapest Hotel (this one is R rated and I haven't see one of those since The Kings Speech - which I loved), and lastly God's Not Dead. I am afraid the last might be too kitsch-y. What say you?

God's Not Dead is supposed to be wonderful. I can't wait until it arrives in theaters near us. (My 17 year old has been watching the trailer for months.)

i want to see Noah, also, just to see the ark. It is supposedly built to scale. Let us know what you decide on.

I have a whopping four hours to myself tomorrow. I'm thinking of getting out and looking for a dress for my daughter's confirmation next weekend.

Kathy,
I had decided to see Noah because I think that God's Not Dead is the kind of movie that doesn't really need to be seen on the big screen. However, Noah is sold out. So now, I am either going to not go at all, or I am going to see God's Not Dead. I will let you know tomorrow what I decide. :-)

On DVD. if you do not want to go out.
Tea with Mussolini wonderful movie about ladies caught up in Europe in WWII
Girl Interrupted. Very challenging about girls with Borderline Personality Disorder

Hey Kimberlie, I just finished watching the film Gravity and it was touching, and moving. I do not know if you like space films, but this one will stay with you after having watched it.

The thing is that Hollywood is answering our call. That Christians are begging for Christian entertainment. The problem is that though they are feeding us now they are downplaying the role of God.

That's the number one criticism I've heard of "Noah". I had the same sensation when I watched Monuments Men. That they were saving Catholic relics as art and not saving the religion.

Though just that little bit of Christian history is like a Casino Buffet to an America where the Christians are starving.

I will mention that in MM there is one scene where the gun fire sounds like it's in the theater.

I almost jumped on the floor even.

Claire,
Thank you for the recommendations. I have always wanted to watch Tea with Mussolini and Cider House Rules.

I saw Letters to Juliet already but honestly, I am trying to stay away from romantic comedies. I love them, but I think the whole "she/he gets the guy/girl in the end has set way to many people (me included ) up for huge amounts of disappointment."

I will check out these other titles on Amazon Prime.

I highly recommend Saving Mr. Banks, which should be out on DVD soon if not already. Excellent story about P.L. Travers, the author of the Mary Poppins books, and how her childhood experiences influenced her writing. Also a good period piece, both from 100 years ago in Australia and early 1960s California. Tom Hanks as Walt Disney is particularly good, but Emma Thompson really nailed it as Travers. Children of alcoholics might be disturbed by some scenes in the movie, but they are very realistic and honest. Of course, if you have time for a "double feature" you should watch Mary Poppins right after this. No filthy language in either movie.
