Movies with your man

Growing up, my mom was (and still is) a flight attendant.  It was always a treat for dad to order a Big Foot pizza (blast from the past) and take my brother and I to the movie store when mom was traveling.  I had the hardest time convincing them to rent a chick flick .... two against one, they vetoed me every time.  Because of this, I love action and most "guy movies," but Gabe keeps getting movies that have suspense added to the mix, which takes it to a whole new level.

If you're looking for an intense movie to watch with you man ... 
I recommend the two below

Harry Brown
Mystery/Suspense & Drama
The Square
Action & Mystery/Suspense

So much for thinking I am tough, I was proven wrong when I was hiding under a blanket and squeezing Gabe's arm.  I get SO sucked in, always have, always will.  I'm a scaredy cat.

These flicks were well worth the heartache - check em out!
Now I'm going to read and think happy thoughts.

Movies like this totally stress me out! You're a good wife :)

Miss Jody said...

Chad and I watch suspense movies all the time and without fail everytime Im under a blanket!

Sarah Wyland said...

I'm the same way - I don't WANT to watch, but I just can't stop myself once it gets into the plot. My stepdad would probably love these!

Sarah said...

thanks for the suggestions! Ian always asks me to watch a movie with him but we are SOOOO opposite when it comes to taste in films... every once in a while one of us will give in to the other, but sometimes we just sit next to each other and watch separate movies on our laptops. hahaha! But maybe I'll suggest we check one of these out tonight! He'll be impressed!

Oh, and I definitely just referenced your cousins travel lists to make my own! I feel so much more prepared for our trip!

Thanks for the recs! I've never heard of either, but I have a great video store round the corner that generally has everything I ever request!

Linda said...

Harry Brown is in our Netflix queue. Can't wait to see it!

Meghan said...

Oh, I haven't heard of these - definitely going to check them out though! Thanks:)

Big Foot Pizza...total blast from the past! I totally forgot about those! Glenn never wants to watch chick flicks either, so 90% we watch suspense movies and I am either hiding behind Bella or a blanket!
Happy Sunday!

Tamara Nicole said...

Will have to chk them out! We just watched "The Road", kinda depressing but def not a girly movie:-)

Bobbi said...

I've never heard of those movies.

If I ever get another boyfriend I'll be sure to rent them. :)

Jax said...

Love it! I'll recommend these when I'm losing a battle for movies...haha. Last year, we saw three guy movies in the theater in a ROW sooo I made him see Valentines Day...and Twilight. It is what it is. ;) I actually really do like action movies a ton..but just now gore. icks.

Natasha said...

bless your heart, i always get snickered into the macho man movies too, but i don't really mind.. that sappyness love stuff can be almost too much to bear sometimes ;)

Tatiana said...

That's too cool that your momma is a flight attendant :-)
I haven't seen neither one of those movies, but I like action/suspense ones so I'll look them up!

Kimberly said...

Hi Kelsey! thanks for thinking I am on the ball! LOL I feel I am forgetful all the time.

5th Belle Avenue said...

Ha this is awesome. I'm always searching for a guy movie that I can enjoy, too. I'll add these to our Netflix list! Thanks! :)

Sarah said...

I've got the 2nd one on my Netflix waiting list. I do love action movies...300...Troy(BRAD PITT) and always watch them with my hubby...but this weekend I got Dear John in the mail, and he REFUSED to watch it with me!

Ashton said...

How fun! I'm super jealous of your movie time together! Buck doesn't have the attention span to make it through many movies. Maybe we'll check these out and see if he can make it through these!! ha!

Kristin said...

I'm always looking for new date night home movie night picks!

Ashley @ KiwisandCocktails said...

I am selfish- I only watch movies I want to watch! haha..if Andrew doesnt like them, he can play on the computer! vice versa! :)
I cant do scary!

Cody and Lindsay said...

Maybe we will watch these this weekend! I am kind of a wuss though!

Charlie said...

Thanks for the suggestions! I just added both movies to our Netflix queue. I love a good suspense/mystery/drama!! :)

Heather said...

I love the memories that you have with your dad from when you are younger, so sweet! I haven't heard of either of these movies, apparently I don't get out much! HA!

LindseyLove said...

I haven't seen either but I def. will take your word and watch them! : ) I'm always grabbing onto hubby's shirt and don't realize until he gives me this look because he thinks it's hilarious.. oh well! It's nice to feel protected haha
