Mrs. Nerdy Teacher Movie List

The following are the views of Mrs. Nerdy Teacher @jenniferpro and are by no ways a reflection of the views of @TheNerdyTeacher, unless she tells me so. :-) Thanks Jenny for the guest post.


Okay…When my very own Nerdy Teacher shared his list of movies with me, I can’t say I was totally surprised. It was a loooooong list (succinct he is not), but it was filled with movies that I both adore and despise…hence, the either rousing success or abysmal failure of “movie time” in our house. Don’t get me wrong, my movie list is by no means haiku-length (What can I say? We’re chatterboxes.) It does, however, offer a little yin to his yang, and brings some much needed “girl power” to his list full of war, zombie and superhero flix. So, ladies – this one’s for you. Fellas, feel free to agree with my picks as well…at the end of the day, good taste is good taste. I’m certain it’s missing many classics, but keep in mind that I’m a 30-year old woman who spends much of her time with a self-proclaimed uber-nerd. Hope you’ll enjoy some of my picks anyway. Finally, thanks to the Nerdy Teacher for sharing some of his creative space with me & for being my very own Lloyd Dobler ;-)
