I am looking at curling up in front of the woodstove with some videos tonight, was wondering what some of your favorite movies are? Since the boys will be home too, guess they need to be ok for them as well!

NEVER CRY WOLF (if you can find it)

-- Susan in Northern LP Michigan (cobwoman@yahoo.com), February 24, 2002.

Thanks Susan that reminded me of another one. Man Who Loved Cat Dancing, Dances With Wolves, and Little Big Man. Shame on you Susan for forgetting that one. I guess sometimes the magic works and sometimes it doesn't!!! LOL

Too funny Nanaboo in Minnahoo! I have so many favs, and Never Cry Wolf was the first one to come to mind. Guess that means it needs to be watched again. Ahhhhh, naked man running across the tundra in pursuit of caribou, not to kill, but to admire. He wasn't hungry enough to hunt, he was full on mice. NOTE: please realize the attitudes about wolves in that movie is outdated. Farley Mohat ROCKS.

Oooooohhhh! Naked men running across tundra? I gotta get that movie. I hope I can tell the difference between the men and the caribou. Has it been that long?????

Other movies I thought of; Jaramiah (sp) Johnson, Grizzly Adams, Tumble Weeds (good mother dayghter movie). Man from Snowy River.

This could be an on going thread.

Susan, Dances with wolves, Kevin Costner is running naked also.

Thank-you all for the suggestions--we did watch Dances with Wolves, and Turner and Hooch--( much to my 16 year olds disdain!! :) ). I have made a list of the others suggested- I had totally forgotten about some of them, and am on the prowl to see if I can't find a few at the pawn shops or thrift stores to add to our collection here. I think though Susan that after working where I work, one more naked man running around hardly brings a yawn to me anymore! Sad as that is! LOL

I almost forgot to ask if anyone has seen Sommersby, with Richard Gere and Jodie Foster??? Not exactly a younger kids movie, but my older kids and I love to pull that out and watch it on occassion. It is a wonderful movie! Got to have a box of tissues ( or roll of toilet paper! ) for the ending though.
