25 Movies (And a Show) for The Month of July

The 4th of July is just a few days away, which means a long weekend for us in the United States.  But spending hot days in the sun, hours on the water at the lake, setting off fireworks at night, and of course, lots of barbecuing can definitely wear you (and your family) out!  So in honor of the holiday, the long weekend, and just for the sheer fact that it’s been a while since I’ve done one of these posts, I’m breaking out the DVDs and compiling a list of 25 great movies (and a television show) that you and yours can curl up to after coming home from your many outdoor adventures!

As usual, there may be a few movies from previous lists that make a repeat appearance, but for the most part I’ve tried to keep the list as fresh as possible.

25 Movies for July

I have a feeling I’m missing a few key films, but I just cant justify recommending a movie I’ve never seen!

What would you put on your must-see list for the month of July?  How about you folks from countries other than the U.S. – what are you guys watching this month?

    • Me too! I remember even though I was pretty young when it first came out, I never had any trouble sitting through the whole thing. It’s long, but it’s so captivating!
