    Just looking through your husbands list. He wants to see a film from the year he was born. Tell him to watch Fandango (1985). http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0089126/ as well as been a great film it should be an inspiration for him wanting to take a roadtrip! Take a look at my blog about a roadtrip inspired by the film http://fandangogroovers.wordpress.com/2009/02/25/fandangogroovers/

      Thanks! This is definitely going on our to-watch list :)

    If you only go for one of my suggestions make it Watchmen. It isn’t the best of the recommendations but as a graphic novel it is very different to everything else on the list.

      I thought I already had it on there :) It’s added. Thanks again!

    Sorry posted the above in wrong place, it should be in the books section but you get the idea.

    I look forward to hearing if you enjoy Fandango.
