    Since we have a decent book thread going... what about movies?

    Since the book recommendation thread has been so much fun to keep up with, shall we start a movie recommendation thread too?

    What are your favorite movies?

    I think the recent Lincoln film was fantastic. My husband and I saw it twice. Daniel Day-Lewis' acting for the role of Abraham Lincoln was absolutely phenomenal. He did an incredible job of recreating Lincoln based on research, even using a tone of voice and walking with a specific gait that were described in correspondence between Lincoln's friends and relatives.

    And of course I will always promote the Narnia films for family viewing, particularly The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. It has an eerily beautiful soundtrack--I walked down the aisle to one of the scores--and the setting is just enchanting.

    ...I also can't say enough good things about The Emperor's Club and Take the Lead. Very wholesome and inspiring movies. Oh! And the first Karate Kid!

    Erm, I'm not a huge movie person, but lately, my two favorites are Olympus Has Fallen and the new Star Trek movie. Over the years, I've loved:

    While You Were Sleeping (still probably my favorite)
    A Cinderella Story
    Becoming Jane
    The Narnia movies
    Pretty much any Jane Austen novel.
    RED
    Two Weeks Notice
    Leap Year
    August Rush
    The Sound of Music (gah, I watched this religiously as a child!)
    The Importance of Being Earnest
    The Scarlet Pimpernel
    The Hunger Games (I admit it! I'm such a dork. :/)
    The Holiday
    Step Up
    The Avengers (And Iron Man, and The Incredible Hulk, and Thor, and Captain America... guilty!)
    Battle: Los Angeles
    Spiderman (the new one, with Andrew Garfield!)
    All the President's Men (I was a writing major, and a history buff--what do you expect? )
    Gettysburg
    The Patriot
    Johnny Tremain
    Knight and Day
    The Proposal
    The Back-Up Plan

    Usually I love the super-ooy-gooey romantic movies, but lately I've been in an action sort of mood.

    ETA: I don't know how I missed Sherlock Holmes (seriously! They need to make a third one!), Ever After, Ella Enchanted... I'll probably edit again to add. Many times.
