Have you seen many of the great films from last year? I'm assuming not many since you said you havne't gone to the movies once, and a lot of them have only recently come out on DVD.

So, why not try:

Little Miss Sunshine
Children of Men (Though it does have a lot of shooting...hmmm...check this out when you get over that then)
Pan's Labyrinth (overrated by some, but still a great film)
The Prestige
The Fountain

You know what. Now that I think about it, a lot of movies from last year involve guns....and a lot of my favorite movies have guns in them...hmm. Oh well.

unico, do you absolutely want no guns at all in what you're watching these days? Or are you just trying to avoid overly violent stuff? Just out of curiosity ...

I'm begining to think Pan's might be a little too much for you

Well...I seem to get the reaction whenever I see a gun. For example, I have no problem kicking my friend's butt in Tekken...so I don't think it is the violence itself, just the gun.

I tried to see The Prestige last night...then I saw a gun and I started shaking.

Most movies have guns in them it seems. This could be tough.

Both are awful movies.
I agree that Smokin' Aces was awful

The best movie I've seen so far this year is Off the Black. It's so poignant and genuine without being over the top at all. I also recently enjoyed Still Crazy (think This Is Spinal Tap with a more plausible/realistic plot and better music).

I know it's not out on DVD yet, but I saw The Namesake in the theater a few months ago, and it was great. I'd definitely suggest adding that for when it does come to DVD. Other non-violent movies I've enjoyed a lot since I joined Netflix last year are The Dangerous Lives of Altar Boys, Clean, Paper Clips, This Film Is Not Yet Rated, and Saved!

City of God and Children of Men were both excellent but very violent. I also really liked Casino Royale, though there's violence in that, too.

You know, I think there's only 1 film in my top 10 that doesn't feature a gun in some way.

Pan's Labyrinth, yes indeed awesome and brilliant but dark and violent.

Kill Bill 1 and 2 but that's violent with swords but so worth it. I would like too see some other samurai movies now.

I'll try to come up with something less violent.

The Hudsucker Proxy is a great movie I caught on HBO the other day. I don't recall there being any guns in that.

Breach is really good, and I don't think there are guns in it.
