Every so often, I'll quote a line from some classic movie or make a comment on some cultural oddity best explained in a scene from some movie. I've found, invariably, if my audience include the littlest ninjer, the comment / quote will sail right over her head.

now if you know mini like I know mini, you might assume this is simply because she's like 3'6".

But no.

It's a function of not having watched all the greats as a youngster, which technically, she still is.

Greats like the Blues Brothers. Young Frankenstein. The Good, the Bad and the Ugly. And so on.

So let's hear your ideas on movies our ninjer can watch while her hambone or string or whatever heals up.

Preferably movies she can catch on Netflix.

Maybe not. That is such a great edge of your seat-suspense film it will stunt your growth. See where I'm going with that?

Rooster Cogburn
African Queen
Magnificent 7 (the original)

The Quiet Man - One of the best fight scenes in any movie, ever. Supposedly I have some kind of family connection, a great aunts property was supposedly featured in the film somehow.
