...am sitting in my mom's room watching "The Bible" (John Huston). I've never seen it before and am thoroughly enjoying it.  In 2 hours they've shown the Creation, Adam and Eve, Cain and Abel and Noah!  Now we are watching the Tower of Babyl getting built!  Very good film!!!

Reviews say the "...violence is over the top" in this movie, so maybe something a little less violent?

Anything with Jean Reno is generally going to be good.  Either Leon the Professional or Wasabi would be my suggestions.  Crimson Tide is a bit gory, if you aren't into that.

If you like war movies you might try Talvisota or (if you can find it) Tali-Ihantala 1944.  Both are Finnish.  They make the best, though I still think 9th Company (Russian) is among the best as well.

Westerns?  The Outlaw Josey Wales is, IMHO, the best, hands down.

If you want to go classic perhaps First Blood (it's a Rambo movie, but I personally think it is a film that can stand on it's own merits) or the original Die Hard.  It's a Christmas movie and you get to watch Bruce Willis kill Professor Snape.

Rocky was okay, i don't think i'd see the rest but it kept me occupied and not thinking of my mum's overcooked sprouts and my cousin's bitter and twisted gravy tomorrow #laughs

Enough, starring Jennifer Lopez. I really didn't think I'd like this. I was surprised. Although maybe that's just because it's nigh impossible not to cheer for a battered woman trying to get out.

What a horrible casting choice.  They make a movie about a battered woman trying to get out...and they choose a woman I would personally like to batter.  Shoulda been Sandra Bullock or Jennifer Aniston.  I'd feel sad seeing them get the snot kicked out of them.  But J Lo?  I might find myself rooting for the husband.

Black Hawk Down is on my list of best war movies.  Joyeux Noel was pretty good as well.  It's in English, French, and German, depending on which side is being presented at the moment.  BTW, by "English" I mean Scottish.  I actually found the Germans the easiest to understand.    Cheesy

If i had wanted "bubble gum action" i wouldn't have needed to have consulted the forum, there's enough out there to choose from along with most of what passes for comedy which is often lazy production, predictable script and delivered by unfunny talentless try-hards..

I'm sorry. I misinterpreted your call for "not too heavy"! I guess I'm a bit of binary thinker when it comes to movies... You asked for something light and I give you a bunch of war movies and such that are kind of dark and kill off most of the cast. I went too far in the other direction.

Yeah, I find I don't enjoy a lot of modern comedy movies despite my highly refined taste for crude internet fair like WKUK and College Humor.

My wife and I went to see War Horse tonight. A very good movie. It was refreshing to watch a two hour movie without a stream of profanity and gratuitous sex. There was some intense violence, but it was not gory or explicit. Beautifully filmed with good acting and a few philsophical gems sprinkled in along the way. Not the best movie I've ever seen, but one that is certainly worth watching in my opinion.

The horse endures many trials and struggles, but there was not any deliberate torture or anything like that. I don't want to give away the movie, but I can tell you that it has a more fortunate ending than Bambi or Old Yeller.

My wife and I went to see War Horse tonight. A very good movie. It was refreshing to watch a two hour movie without a stream of profanity and gratuitous sex. There was some intense violence, but it was not gory or explicit. Beautifully filmed with good acting and a few philsophical gems sprinkled in along the way. Not the best movie I've ever seen, but one that is certainly worth watching in my opinion.

What percentage of the movie was violence?  I'm looking for a good WWI movie.
Flyboys might work for a certain peculiar definition of "good," but it wouldn't be a very good definition of "good" by most definitions of "good." That may not have made sense, but you still shouldn't watch Flyboys.

Conspiracy Theory with Mel Gibson and Julia Roberts.

Old movie but I just saw it for the first time. A little like Memento.

I was pleasantly surprised by this movie. Of course Sir Patrick can do no wrong in my eyes....

It had Jean Reno in it.  I had no choice.  I fell asleep half way through and had to take up where I left off the next night, but all the same...

Yupper he's the best. He is an especially good villain. Good acting all round in that flick especially since I usually don't like Julia Roberts.

Yeah I never cared for Julia Roberts...she has a mutated, alien mouth. I think she could eat the head of a gorilla in one shot...creepy.
