30 Day Challenge- Favorite Movies

Not only am I picky about books, I am also picky about movies.  I refuse to watch Zombie movies, end of the world movies, military movies, most action movies are out unless the kids trick me and I actually end up liking it.  I do not like Sci-Fi but did enjoy the Hunger Games series and I did like Enders Game but Twilight?  No thank you.

Again, I like movies where the main character overcomes something hard.  I love true stories and documentaries and I love historical fiction films.

Here is the short list.

  1. Memoirs of a Geisha
  2. Secret Life of Bees
  3. Lovely Bones
  4. The Help
  5. The Butler
  6. Boy in the Striped Pajamas
  7. Sarah's Key
  8. The Book Theif
  9. Saving Mr. Banks
  10. My Sister's Keeper
I am going to sneak in a bonus film I saw recently- Monuments Men.  Its about a group of men who go to Europe during WWII to find and preserve historical art that Hitler was stealing from churches and museums for his own collection.  I loved it because just a week before, I had been reading an article on how some of the pieces in the Museum of Modern Art were pieces saved from the war.  Even Sam was very intrigued with the film.  It was great!  Probably one I will add to my collection.
