Nominations

NameMovieComments
Phyllis BellA Knight's TaleThis is such fun! A classic story of a knight's quest for recognition and honour but done with the unusual element of humour. All the necessary components are here; handsome knight, evil knight, beautiful lady, devoted friends, jousting. A fine sight. Suitable for family viewing. I especially enjoyed the inclusion of modern music which contrasted with the medieval costumes and drama.
BruceArmageddonAction/Comedy/Romance
CindyBack to the FutureLove the eighties :)
AprilBraveMerida's hair is amazing! And its pretty cute and fun for all ages.
AprilChocolateI love this movie because of Juliette Binoche. She is lovely in it and such a free spirit. There is something for all ages in this movie: chocolate, Johnny Dep, invisible kangaroos, Johnny Depp, beautiful european town.
JanetDespicable MeBecause we can't watch Despicable Me 2 since I haven't even seen the first one yet. Looking me breaking all the rules nominating a movie i haven't even seen.
Linda YoungDespicable Me 2Because it is fun to dance to the song "Happy" - and it should have won the Oscar for Best Song this year
AprilFrozenI love the animation and the snowman is pretty cool. Lol.
DoreenHobbit:Desolation of SmaugLove the Lord of the Rings movies
AprilIron Man 3Because Robert Downey Jr. is super hot and well....he's Iron Man and funny.
AprilMidnight in ParisFor Phyllis and I it's in France, for Steve and anyone into music there is fabulous music by Sydney Bechet, for more studious types there are all sorts of famous writers and artists, for the kids there is a silly Salvador Dali. It's such a great movie.
DoreenMonster UniversityI loved Monsters Inc. Very cute animation.
Phyllis BellOut of AfricaThis is a classic and while the children may find the story a bit grown-up they are bound to enjoy the scenes of Africa, wildlife included. It would be lovely to watch this story unfold under the stars. Superb acting. Lions&tigers&people. Oh, my!
JanetPrincess BrideAre you kidding? Fencing, fighting, torture, revenge, giants, monsters, chases, escapes, true love, miracles...

If that isn't enough of a reason, you get to see a young Robin Wright before she took on the role of a co-conspirator to a sociopath in House of Cards
CindyRaiders of the lost ArcLove Harrison ford. Another classic.
