We are a family of movie junkies and have our favorites. Remember the Titans is among the favs. 🙂
I haven’t seen any of these movies. Looks as though I have a catch-up movie night coming up soon.
I agree on one: Lord of the Rings. I didn’t want to go to the movies to watch it with my husband. I thought it’d be dumb. I actually enjoyed it. He does have good taste in movies after all.
We haven’t watched those movies yet. We are still watching Paw Patrol and Dora.
I remember the movie of Lord of the ring, it’s really awesome movie and I admit that I enjoyed it.
Yes, I really loved Remember The Titans. That was an excellent movie!
Great movies! School of rock one of our family movies My hubby and i watch sometimes with our son.
I haven’t seen school of rock, but I have seen LOTR and I am not sure that is entirely a great little kid movie. 🙂 My little guy was quite afraid of some of the characters.:)

I have only watched School of Rock….this is a great lineup….you had me at family because there are so many movies that you cannot watch with family so this is great
We haven’t seen school of rock yet, I think that would be a fun movie to see with the kids. Looks like I should put it in the Netflix cue.

All great movies! Hard to believe its been over 10 years since these movies came out. Are they now considered classics? LOL
Of course LOTR should be there!! I don’t do football movies – mostly because the brain is a human’s most valuable resource. The damage through this sport is heart-breaking.
The Incredibles was 2004 and there are a lot valuable lesson about being a stronger together as a family, but also finding your own individual strengths – love it!
I’ve seen those movies and these are all good movies.
