Movie: Post-Op Movie Lineup

I will be having surgery the first week of June and will be recovering at home for two weeks after.  I was toying with the idea of “what to watch” and came up with a rough list of potentials.  I would welcome suggestions that you might think I would find interesting.

Potential movies to watch post-op recovery.


  • Metropolis (1927)
  • Kagemusha (1980)
  • Raging Bill (1980)
  • The Apple Dumplin Gang (1975)
  • Casablanca (1942)
  • Close Encounters (1977) – I have seen this one but have a hankering to rewatch it.
  • African Queen (1951)
  • MASH (1970) – the movie, not the TV series
  • Bullitt (1968)
  • Little Big Man (1970) – I have seen this one but want to rewatch
  • Nashville (1975)

Newer Movie:

  • Dr Strange (2016)
  • Bronson (2008)
  • Sherlock (2016) – Season 4 (3 eps, 90min each)
  • The Butler (2013)
  • Pete’s Dragon (CGI, I know) (2016)
  • Jungle Book (Please refer to PD above) (2016)
  • Aftermath (2017)
  • Cake (2015)


  • Secret Life Of Pets (2015)
  • Moana (2016)
  • The Last Unicorn (1980) – this COULD be under the classics too
  • Batman vs Dracula (2005)
  • BFG (2016)
  • The Iron Giant (1999)
  • Kubo (2016)
  • Troll Hunter (2015)

  1. I recently watched the movies About Time with Rachel McAdams, Age of Adeline and Split, and really liked them. I would probably turn to some of my favorites like: Groundhog Day, What About Bob, Aliens (the 2nd one is my favorite), Little Shop of Horrors (was just talking about this movie yesterday with my mom and realized it’s been ages since I’ve seen it), The Birdcage and The Goonies to name a few.

    1. Loved About Time. Forgot Age of Adeline, will add that to potentials! Birdcage is a fave in my house
