I don't usually watch movies while on a cruise. But if I did I would watch any of the movies that you mentioned.

Don't watch any movies while cruising, with the possible exception of the last one, when hubby was ill and confined to the room for 6 days. We watched more movies that week than we'd seen in the last 10 years...including Life of Pictures, involving a ship sinking at sea....

I am not much to watch movies but I would not watch action movies, all violence and no plot. Give me comedy or a good drama.

We do not watch any movies either. We did once, while on the Grand Princess. What a mess... it was so windy that my fresh drink fell over and spilt and I was charged for another. Popcorn everywhere....

I enjoy a movie on the lido sometimes when I'm in the mood for a little down time, I've always been a fan of drive- in movies ...something about being outside cuddled up under the stars.....works for me. I don't think there's a movie that would bother me due to being at sea, I wouldn't want to watch a long drawn out one , something light hearted works.

Movie to not see at sea. In addition to the ones already talked about. Open Water, Jaws, Speed 2 Cruise control and Boat trip (the ship doesn't sink but the actors' careers do).

On our charter Jazz cruises the movies on the lido deck are all Jazz related and shown late at night so we enjoy watching them while having pizza at 0200am..one of my favorite movies "20 Steps From Stardom" was about back up singers to popular vocalist
