Movies I missed growing up a witness?

    Ok, so a recent post about The Godfather got me thinking what a massively sheltered life I had growing up,
    and all the classic R rated (or otherwise offensive to delicate JW sensibilities) movies I must have missed.
    I am not easily offended now, and am open to pretty much any genre.
    I have a lot of catching up to do, so I could use some help-

    What are your all time favorite movies, "inappropriate for Christians" or otherwise?

    Why not watch the movie "Paradise"? Phoebe Cates is in it. She is hot!

    These are ones I really liked and have watched.

    Dancing with Wolves - with Kevin Costner

    A moment in time- Christopher Reed tear jerker movie

    Notebook- with Gena Rolands & James Garner tear jerker movie

    I could list ones I'd rented the past few years that I couldn't see before.
    What I did though was go to the video store and get whatever older movies caught my eye that I remembered wanting to see before but couldn't.

    The one movie I did see in theaters that I wasn't supposed to was Candyman- my sister took me because you had to be with someone 18 or over. It scared the crap out of me at the time plus we got busted by a witness kid who worked there, he came and asked us to see our tickets. I don't think he ever told because we never got in trouble for it.

    The Exorcist and the Poltergeist, scared me to no end, but boy was it fun.

    I suggest watching them at night when the moon is full, and light a few candles for effect. I promise no demons will visit you.

    I only missed 16 years of movies. For the last 10 months I have been obsessed trying to watch them all.

    Some of my favorites.....


    Dead Man Walking

    Bridget Jones

    Lord of the Rings

    LIfe as a House

    Cold Mountain

    I'll stop there, I could go on for awhile. I love movies and the R rated rule is truly stupid.
