Movies to Ring in the New Year.

What are you up to for New Years? Have a party planned? Maybe a little dancing. No, you just want to stay home and have a nice relaxing night with family and friends-well, have I got a few tasty movies for you! There's suspense, romance and a few laughs to make you New Years go off with a little bang.

A very personal favorite of mine and one that I mentioned a few weeks ago is After the Thin Man. Nick and Nora must solve a mystery on New Year's Eve.  This is a wonderful story of intrigue and suspense with humor only William Powell and Myrna Loy can pull off. Of course, don't forget their wonderful terrier Asta-he certainly has a bone to pick with Mrs. Asta!

For the record, I am not a fan or romance movies, with that being said, I will make an exception for When Harry Met Sally. This is such a sweet and funny movie. The dinner scene was so hysterical! I love when Rob Reiner's mom says, "I'll have what she's having". The story is basically a boy meets girls, loses girls, meets her over and over again-they are friends and then fall in love. The last scene still gets to me. The soundtrack is amazing too-it brought big band and swing into heavy rotation again.

Repeat Performance is a wonderful "what if" movie starring Joan Leslie. Joan stars as Shelia Page, a Broadway star that murders her crooked husband on New Year's Eve. In a state of panic, she flees to a friend's house and he grants her a wish and sends her back home, only this time, it's a day earlier. The suspense is..what path will she take this time and will the outcome still be the same?

What a wonderful way to send 2009 on it's way-a little romance, some giggles and a lot of intrigue-kind of sounds like the state of global affairs. Anyhoo! I hope you enjoy these wonderful New Year's gems. Until next time my favorite movie goers!
