My husband and I usually have our dvd marathons every Sundays or during rainy or "flood" days (you know how it is here in Manila, a bit of rain, the roads are flooded..). More often than not we spend a lot of time discussing which dvd to buy and another round of discussion on which one to watch.

He loves action, sci-fi, adventure movies and that gives me a headache. I remember a few weeks ago I lost the "discussion" and we had to watch Nicolas Cage's The Windtalkers, wow! I had migraine afterwards from the shooting sounds and the blurry war images. I go for comedies, romantic but not too mushy movies, not too heavy stuff, movies that relaxes me and he thinks its a chore watching mushy flicks.

I found this list on Good Housekeeping and I'm taking note of this titles so the next time we schedule a dvd marathon, we might have something to compromise on.
