Movies to watch while knitting
Apologies if something like this has already been posted.

Ok since my satellite service is getting cut off on Aug 1 (really, I meant to do that ), I have a need to flesh out my Netflix queue.

Is anyone else on Netflix (I've seen it mentioned a few times in various threads) ? Love the Netflix!! I haven't tried it yet, but I know that "friends" can make recommendations for each other's accounts. If anyone is interested in that, let me know!

If you're not on Netflix, just post some recommendations. Netflix has EVERYTHING, so I'm sure I'll find it. My dad found the movie that he and my mom saw on their first date, so he signed up! Isn't that sweet?

PLEASE HELP! Don't let my :XX: suffer b/c I don't have anything to watch on tv!!!

I love Netflix. I used to have an account with a S.F. based online rental company that actually made contributions back to the independent movie maker's union. Unfortunately, the major motion picture movies they had available was extremely limited, thus I switched back to Netflix ( I quit them when they tried to raise their fees).

I usually knit when I'm watching a comedy, like Miss Congeniality, or Meet the Fockers.

Happy kniting! :XX:

Fried green tomatoes...
(Ahpu's wife from the Simpson's said it was her favorite book, movie and food) I saw it for the 1st time a couple of months ago and I knitted my french market bag (well, not the whole thing but some....)
Out of Africa too though, that is one of my top 3 movies.

The Butterfly Effect--Don't be turned off by Ashton Kutchner in this movie. He's actually good in it.

Dragonfly-Kevin Costner

Pirates of the Caribbean--gotta love Johnny

I just watched an Evening with Kevin Smith the past two nights whilst knitting. Good because you can get away with just looking at your knitting instead of the TV because he just talks. Hilarious stuff though.

Binkycat,
Sounds like you and I love the same movies. I've got "Somewhere in time" tivo'd I won't erase it. Yes, Chris was just adorable pining for Jane that whole time. Another Chris I like is Christopher Walken in the Dead Zone and the Deer Hunter (before he turned rotten.... I still love 'em though) his smile just melts me in those movies as well as John Travolta's smile in the wading pool in Grease. Oooh lordy, takes my breath away
