Monday Movie Meme – Aging

Feature Presentation…MONDAY MOVIE MEME
This week’s movie topic is all about Getting Older
Share on your blog movies about aging or being elderly, linking back here at The Bumbles.
  
This one was hard.  I guess as I haven’t watched many movies on aging, but here area  few I enjoyed.
 
1. Something’s Gotta Give (2003) I’m not always a Jack Nicholson fan, but he did win me over with this one.  And I always like watching Diane Keaton on the big screen.
 
2. The Bucket List (2007) That Jack Nicholson film made me think of this one with Morgan Freeman.  What’s on your bucket list?
 
3. Terms of Endearment (1983) And that Jack Nicholson movie made me think of this one.  I was only 12 when I saw it for the first time and I cried buckets.
 
4. Two for the Road (1967) Audrey Hepburn and Albert Finney are a married couple and the movie covers their 12 year marriage.
 
5. The Rocky series (1976, 1979, 1982, 1985, 1990, 2006)  Taken as a whole these six movies starring Sylvester Stallone show how the boxer aged.  The last one, Rocky Balboa, was especially poignant as he faced the choices he made in his life.

    The only one I haven’t heard of on this list is Two for the Road. I absolutely love the others…yes, even Rocky. I am a huge Rocky fan! Something’s Gotta Give just had me laughing during that whole crying thing!

    Ok I haven’t seen any of these movies. I guess I’m a little behind the times! But I’m adding the Jack Nicholson movies to my list – he’s an awesome actor!
    Natalie :0)

    I thought for a minute there you were going to have a Jack Nicholson week. I’m not a huge fan of his either but I liked the ones you listed. I need to see Two For the Road. Anything with Audrey Hepburn.

    I cannot *stand* Jack Nicholson so I’ll pass on The Bucket List, but I love how you included Two for the Road. That movie is so terrific and romantic and such an innovative way of telling their story. And I always love remembering how Audrey explained how she got the little girl to come forward with the car keys, “I wooooed her.”

    I always tell Sandy when I visit her that I haven’t watched any of the ones she listed on her posts although I do know about them. So, in this case, it’s no different too (LOL!) but, but, but… I can say I have watched Something’s Gotta Give. HURRAH!
