I'm wondering if you have a thing for the Helmsworth brothers :)
I'd like to see Frozen. The shorts I saw a while ago looked funny.

Heather said...

Shelley: And that would be bad how?? :D Frozen is really good, one I'd like to own.

colleen said...

I've seen a lot of these. The Juror sticks in my mind.

Jennifer Leeland said...

Ooooh I love love love "Woman of the Year". It looks like we watch a lot of the same movies. I haven't seen "Suspect" in forever. Great list.

Heather said...

Colleen: This was the first I'd seen The Juror or The Suspect, which were on back-to-back one Saturday afternoon.

Heather said...

Jennifer: I LOVE watching those old B&W movies, and Katherine Hepburn movies are among the best. I'd somehow missed Suspect back in the 80s. I think the biggest surprise was Liam Neeson's role. I didn't even recognize him in the beginning.

Icy BC said...

I read some of the books, and saw the movies!

Heather said...

Icy: Assume you are refering to The Hunger Games trilogy? I loved the books, and thought the first two movies were pretty good.

Paige Tyler said...

Love Frozen and Thor! Two of my favorites!


My TT is at

Alice Audrey said...

I saw Chocolat twice and loved it both times.

Heather said...

Paige: I had a feeling you would approve of those two choices. *VBG*

Heather said...

Alice: Chocolat is one of my all-time favorites. I watch it every year around Easter. ☺

Jana said...

I've seen about half of these. Enjoyed most of them. Still need to see Secretariat. Oh, and the Hunger Games movies. Emmy informed me that I am lame for not having seen them yet. I don't know why I haven't bothered watching. Just...*shrug* Not my thing? Maybe watching would change my mind.

Heather said...

Jana: Have you read the "Hunger Games" books? Loved that series, so was glad to finally see the movies. The meanies are dividing book three into two separate movies, a year apart. *grumbles*
