Let me know in comments if I missed any.

I got "The Never Ending Story" and "Paint your Wagon" out of the DVD library for them yesterday so it will be interesting to see what they think of them.

I also got one called "Artic Life" ("OMG-all-the-polar-bears-are-going-to-die" type). It had some lovely shots of polar bears and other artic critters in it. The girls seemed to enjoy it. (We watched this first as it was a short movie and it was nearly their bedtime).

Nice list! I haven't seen some of those so I guess I know what's going on Netflix!

I'm not a big movie person.
Only seen 13 of those.
Oddly enough, my absolute favorite of all times is there..."Gods Must Be Crazy". Drives me into fits of laughter every time.

One other they might enjoy is "Dances With Wolves".
The "Harry Potter" series is also nice.

BBC Planet Earth. It's a massive thing, meant to be split into many parts, but the cinematography is stunning, the shots of predators doing their thing very restrained, the science generally darned good and very informative, and in general a beautiful, lovely thing.

Damn, there are some GOOD movies on that list! I'm with Cy, now I've gotta go back and see some of them again!
