1)Singin' in the Rain                                            

Do you have kids? One rainy day, I was humming, and realized she'd never seen "Singin' in the Rain." Not her fault, it was before her time. Well, it was in the library, we took it home for movie night, and she LOVED it. I've since been making a list of "classic" movies, old & new, that she should see, and thought I'd share, in the order I'm showing them to her. I've got 40 on the list, so I'll add 1 a day, be done before Thanksgiving, but would appreciate any additions you might have. Remember, no "R" and only mild PG-13's!


2)Big                                                                        Having "movie night" is a great incentive to get homework done, and a great way to get them a little modern culture and enjoyment. 2 down 38 to go.... 


3)1776                                                                    "Movie night" doesn't always have to be funny. While studying US history, before the big Phila class trip, my daughter fell in love with this musical! 3 down 37 to go....


4)Who Framed Roger Rabbit                            Seems like a good idea to mix it up a bit, alternate cartoon with real, funny with (semi)serious. Feel free to give me suggestions to add to the list, I'll give you credit! 4 down 36 to go....


5)Our Man Godfrey                                                Even though it's black & white, this feel good, romantic comedy has happiness, & a social message still relevent today. Feel free to post suggestions, or forward for more! 5 down 35 to go....


6)Back To The Future                                            I'd forgotten how much swearing this has (for younger folks), but it's fun, exciting and a modern classic. Thanks for all the "Likes" to get more suggestions for us all! 6 down 34 to go....


7)Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory             More fun & lighthearted than the remake, great songs, no nightmares. Anyone know any other originals more fun than the remakes to add? 7 down 33 to go....


8)Airplane                                                                 Wackiness at it's best! How could you not expose your kid(s) to this kind of humor?!? Not just entertainment, it's film/cultural education too! 8 down 32 to go....
 

9)Star Trek:The City on the Edge of Forever
OK, it's TV, but one of the best,most awarded Star Trek's. Happy & sad. Remember, kids' minds are a blank canvas, and it's up to us to sketch the outline so they can fill it in. 9 down 31 to go.... 

10)ET
Did you see Spielberg on 60Min? Classic movie! Have to include it. Anyone want to vote on including "Rocky"? 10 down 30 to go.... 

11)On The Town
This is an amazing movie you’ve probably never seen either! Check out this clip http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x7CIgWZTdgw Loaded with famous people & songs every kid should grow up having heard once. Let me know any suggestions! I’ll put the past descriptions of each on our website http://www.DentistSpa.com/ 11 down 29 to go.... 

12)Field Of Dreams
With the storm coming, what better time for an uplifting, emotional charge, the ultimate father/son film. Be safe, let me know if you need help from the storm. 12 down 28 to go....

13)Star Wars                        Star Wars came out in the 70's! Classic, a part of American history. I feel it's *my* duty to make my daughter experiences it. Be safe, let me know if you need any help. 13 down 27 to go....
 

14)Ghostbusters

Halloween, it's a natural! Not too scary, good effects, happy ending. Please forward this reminder to all your friends to bring "extra" (unwanted) candy over to the office, so we can send a big collection and make our troops happy! 14 down 26 to go.... 

15)Sleepless in Seattle
Nothin' better on a cold night than to snuggle up and watch a family romantic comedy together (then hang on to that romantic feeling for... later...). I'm amazed at all the candy pouring in. Feel free to write notes to our troops to be included with all the candy on our blog &, like or share this to spread the word http://www.dentistspa.com/blog/post/welcome-to-the-dentistspa.html 15 down 25 to go.... 

16)Mr. Smith Goes to Washington
Have *you* even seen this Henry Fonda classic? Teach your kids the elegant beauty (and the dark side) of our democracy, in this romantic adventure. Feel free to vote on movies!

On TCM Sun! Don Knotts as you've never seen him... Winning WWII for us, who could ask for more?

I'm always open to suggestion!
