Can anyone tell me some good movies to watch?

Asked by Bilbo123 (165points) February 13th, 2011

I want to watch movies which don’t have any sex scenes, any vulgar words.
e.g. Movies like Gladiator, LOTR, Pursuit of happiness.

It should not be like,
The perfume, Final destination 3 and 4. I want to watch some good movies.

Also, the movies would be worth watching. or movies like sentimental, having really good story, emotional movies.

Type of movie doesn’t matter, but it should be good to see. According to your suggestions I will start downloading those.

Good answers will be appreciated indeed.

Pleasantville ( a hilarious parody on the ‘Leave it to Beaver ’ series, about two teens that get transported into a 50’s sitcom with a twist! )

The five people you meet in heaven ( about a man who thinks his life is a waste until he dies and is walked back through to see the chain of events that gave meaning to the end )

Enchanted ( a modern day fairy tale, very funny and cute and clean )

The Water Horse ( about a little boy that finds a Sea Monster egg on the beach and hatches it )

Sea Biscuit, Secretariat, The Black Stallion ( if you’re a horse fan )

How to Lose Friends and Alienate People is a great comedy!
Memento if you like pyschological thrillers
Up is one of the best Pixar movies ever
Schindler’s List, but be warned, it is a very heavy movie
Donnie Brasco is one of my favorite crime movies, but it was a little violent at times. Nothing to bad though. Good luck, let us know how you like all these!

I don’t remember how much cursing is in it but Life As A House is one of my favorite films. I’m sure there’s an f bomb or two, usually for emotional effect – certainly not a shocking amount. Seriously, a good movie.

@gailcalled: A THOUSAND LURVES FOR THE COURT JESTER. You have no idea how much I love you for mentioning that movie. I was raised on Danny Kaye, too many people don’t know who he is anymore.

The Court Jester is funny, clever, just wonderful. Everyone should see it.

If you are looking for movies of a darker genre:
Donnie Darko
American Beauty
The Virgin Suicides
Harold and Maude(this one I highly recommend because it is also comical and romantic)

If you prefer movies with meaningful plots:
Good Will Hunting
A Beautiful Mind
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
Lars and the Real Girl
The Secret Life of Bees

I could list so many more but I think I’ll leave it at those!

My favourite film that I watched recvently was ‘Into The Wild’, it is a true story about a young guy who gave away all his money to go and live in the wild. The front man from Pearl Jam did the music.

Based on the movies you mentioned:

Lawrence of Arabia

Akira is a really great anime movie, and Casshern is a pretty cool Japanese action movie. Both worth watching. Chocolat was always one of my favorites, too.

gespect's avatar

the greatest film ever made and why it is. ‘second hand lions’ it may not be anybodies personal favorite but when it comes to a film that nobody can be against this is the only one. others that come very close to being universally liked are:
uncle buck
a christmas story
bolt [the cartoon]
toy story
shrek 1 & 2
the incredables

personally i love ‘the burbs’ and ‘who’s harry crumb’ [but nobody else does]
loony tunes back in action
the man who knew too little
no bad words makes it really difficult and sounding like it’s for children, too.
if that’s not the case you might try rat race, also.

Actually most old hollywood movies don’t have sex in them or vulgar words

who’s afraid of virginia wolf.

Cat on a hot tin roof.

Lots of them..

I recommend Harvey, if you like old Hollywood flicks. One of Jimmy Stewart’s finest!

Also, the movies would be worth watching. or movies like sentimental, having really good story, emotional movies.

Try out Let the Right One In, or its excellent remake, Let Me In.

It’s a vampire story, but a very unique one…nothing like one who doesn’t watch vampire movies would expect…both have a bit of gore and cussing, but nothing excessive at all, and it’s extremely emotionally poignant, especially the original. In fact, it’s more a ’‘relationship’’ movie than a vampire one…

tigerlilly2's avatar

@Symbeline Let the Right One In is amazing.

I forgot to mention that if you are interested in a romantic movie that is realistic and not too gushy, with an astounding soundtrack to boot, then you should give (500) Days of Summer a go!

I watched Best In Show last night and it was really funny and entertaining. I love mockumentaries and this one was exceptionally hilarious. I especially love the couple with braces and the emotional Weimeraner.
