Summer Cinema Wish List

Jamie and I can't seem to get our shit together enough to be able to watch any movies.  After our kids are in bed, he usually does work while I study.  In addition, our weekends are no longer about doing fun things as a couple.  This summer, some of that is about to change.  

This is going to be the summer of Netflix.  I am declaring this.  It is so.  I have compiled this list of movies I really want to watch with Jamie, even if we have to stay up until 1 a.m. to make it happen.  People need less sleep in the summer.  A few of these are favorites we want to re-view, and others are simply ones we have missed.  We are looking for more suggestions, if anybody thinks they can improve upon this list.  We need to up our culture factor, so independent or foreign film recommendations are most welcome.  Also, please comment if you have tricks for making your evenings with small children go more smoothly, or if you know of good ways to prioritize couple time (or culture time). 

Here's the list:

  1. Moonrise Kingdom
  2. Gummo
  3. Into the Wild
  4. Les 400 Coups (the 400 blows)
  5. Spirited Away
  6. Synecdoche, New York
  7. Kids
  8. Use Your Van
  9. A Clockwork Orange
  10. Labyrinth
  11. What's Eating Gilbert Grape
  12. Le Fabuleux Destin D'Amelie Poulain
  13. The Fountain
  14. The Secret of Kells
  15. Kicking and Screaming (Noah Baumbach)
  16. Men Who Stare at Goats
  17. The Butterfly Effect
  18. Let The Right One In
  19. Garden State
  20. The Weather Man
  21. The Importance of Being Earnest
  22. Deconstructing Harry
