Has anyone else seen any movies they'd like to recommend? I'm hoping to get out and rent some movies here soon, would love to hear what other movies are worth seeing?

I don't usually see movies any more until they hit DVD. Sad. But I saw a commercial for A Haunting In Conneticut. Oh crap, I know I spelled that wrong. Supposed to be based on a true story and looks pretty good.

If you like action movies Wanted is the one to try to get. Totally off the hook!!! OEJ and I had a great time with that one. We just watched the Changeling too which was also really good, but very tragic. Even more so after having looked up more about the woman in the movie. Just saw the Duchess which again, I thought was really good, but very sad. The Duchess was a great, great, great, great, great Aunt to Priincess Diana and I I had no idea until I started watching the movie. All I can say is it's amazing sometimes how history repeats itself. Lots of similarities.

I'm so behind on movies anymore, it's disgraceful! Right now I'm waiting for Twilight to come on DVD and Inkheart. I've been getting movies from the library either for free or for a quarter.

An absolutely awesome movie we rented recently was Religulous. I figured it would be funny, but I had no idea it was going to become one of my all time favorite movies. I'm planning on buying it very soon.

Thanks LHallow, I'll have to check that one out.

I did find out about a new Vampire movie that's coming out in DVD March 10th, and although I think may be in subtitled the staff, who know me well said they think I'll really enjoy it. It's been so long since I've seen a truly awe inspiring Vampire movie. So I'll either buy it or rent it, now sure yet.

Did anyone see it in theatre? Here's the link to the MOvie's website, the movie is called " Let the Right one In.

Let the Right One In - From Magnet's Six Shooter Film Series

Hey Folks, well hubby & I finally got to watch both of the movies we rented:) I really enjoyed both and would highly recommend either of them.

Max Payne ~ Starring Mark Wahlberg "Sizzle":)

I found Max Payne to be quite moving for an action type film. To me it encompassed several wicked elements and instead of leaning heavly on a particular motif as action with the rest of the theme trailing behind it, this movie managed to pull it all together and keep it there. I loved the fact that while it provided plenty of action it was thought provoking and emotional and had an awesome psychological component to it as well. It was dark, erotic, even sensual at times and embraced a true human ingredient. About the only aspect of the movie that I was surprised by was that it wasn't more elusive. BUt nevertheless, one hell of a ride that included some gorgeous women and a few ~Sizzzling~ men:)

MAX PAYNE | ON BLU-RAY & DVD 1/20/09

the other movie we rented, omg!!! I haven't laughed so hard so often in such a long time, this movie was hilarious! A truly outstanding comedy, I loved it!:) Oh, oops it was called Zack and Miri Make a Porno, starring Seth Rogen a young but very talented Vancouver BC Canada born actor and comedian who's also a talented screen writer and producer. Seth has stared in a number of films such as knocked up and Pinapple Express. This movie was one hell of a good ride from finish to end, although when I thought about it, I found myself somewhat amazed that this film was able to be out among regular family DVD's. Those with young ones would be best off putting them to bed before plopping this one into the DVD player. But was such a side-splitting good time, enjoy:) Sorry, I won't be posting a link to this flim on here though.

You guys really need t see this. Ihad never heard of it until my wife rented it, and it was one of the best movies I've seen all year.
I can't believe you never heard of this movie. I remember seeing the commercial for it a thousand times.

I rented it this past weekend. It was funny. Kind of a chick flick, but funny. You have to watch the outtakes from the DVD. May be the funniest part of the movie.

I also watched Traitor with Don Cheadle. Loved the ending. If you saw it, you know what I mean.

Hiya people, So hubby & I watched Quantum Solace, not to shabby even for someone like me who's never been into the whole 007 thing.

Then there was Seven Pounds:) OMG! It's such a beautifully emotionally charged movie about love, tragedy, redemption, PTSD & the divine human spirit all rolled into one. It's an extraordinary journey that speaks to your inner being of how truly unique we each see the world through our own eyes. It reminds you of just how volitle & fragile life is but also how magical and selfless it can be if we choose to make it that way. You see the beauty, the pain, the love and devotion in each troubled soul and the uniique gifts each of us possess and bring into this world just by being here, and why nobody is truly ever replaceable.
I felt this was another smashing hit by Will Smith. And Director Gabriele Muccino is winning my heart by a landslide, this man is so full of passion and intellect, he's simply amazing! A must see film:):):)

Another "Must See" Horror Flick? Check out "The Fly" with Jeff Goldblum and Geena Davis. A remake of an old Vincent Price Classic. Goldblum was seriously considered for a nomination for the Best Actor Oscar that year. He wasn't nominated, but if he had been, it would have been only the second actor to be so honored for a Horror Film; Charles Laughton (The Hunchback of Notre Dame) being the other.
Great acting, great script. great SP/FX, especially at the end when he turns completely into THE FLY!!!

Just finished watching the Changling, and omg was it ever well done :)beautifully. A very sad and tragic true story & very frustrating to see that such corruption only continues to grow every day. A must see movie, sorry I'm not into posting more about it, still absorbing it all into my mind and it's near bedtime.
