    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?

    ...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!

    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.
