Friday Five- Movies

Jan posted this nice and early Friday Five about Movies:
Whenever daughter MJ comes home on breaks from college, I get to go to movies, which has me thinking about motion pictures. Plus, it is fun to watch rented dvd's at home, which my husband prefers.

Share your preferences, opinions, and recommendations about movies!
Choose 5 types of movies to discuss:
I love movies, but rarely see them. It seems like our life is so busy, or should I say disorganized, that we most often watch TV. We probably go to more plays, or the ballet than the movies. I'd like to change this so I intend to buy the discount tickets that my union offers as an incentive.
  • drama- I guess my second favorite- I loved up in the Air.
  • comedy- Ok, I like Comedies, Romantic Comedies, but why don't they make girl and girl?
  • foreign- sometimes
  • children's- When I was a kid, my mother would take me and this is a nice memory.
  • Lesbian Gay theme- Once a year in June we have the New Festival a Gay and Lesbian Film Festival in New York and I buy a membership because I finally can see films that mirror my life! I love it.
Bonus: Tell about the first movie you ever saw and/or the last one!
