At the theaters, on DVD or on regular TV!

Last night I watched The Hurt Locker (what a brilliant film) and Sin City and I loved them both.

What didn't you like about the Hurt Locker?

I was hooked from the beginning.

I thought it was a great film..

I finally got around to watching Sin City last night, which was surprising to my friends since they all know I'm a comic book geek. Honestly, I was riveted! It was really violent, but I loved the hokey 30s style noir/crime dialogue and the unusual style in which they filmed it.

I'm going to watch Shutter Island and Little Miss Sunshine tonight, I've heard good things about both.

I'd love to see some of the following, Crazy Heart, Avatar, Inglorious Basterds, Star Trek. But our schedule rarely allows for Movie viewing. When it does, I find myself watching old standby's like The Big Lebowski. I did find time for The Hangover, on PPV, and man is that one an instant classic.

Last movie we saw at the Theatre was the Princess and the Frog with our kids, so suffice to say, we don't hit the Cineplex too often.

I saw the last Trek movie and loved it.

I really want to see Crazy heart, I'll have to wait for the DVD.

I saw "Marshall for the first time this past weekend
. I tivo'd it months ago, and forgot agout it.
It was very moving. I remember well when it happened, and this was tastefully done

I haven't watched a movie since last summer, when I finally watched some old Tarantino flicks, Kill Bill, Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction...

Gotta love Jeff Bridges, he was even quoting "The Dude" after he won the Oscar this year.

Last movie I saw in a theater was The Blind Side. It was pretty good.

I watched a great DVD documentary called The Last One about Popcorn Sutton making a batch of moonshine. I got interested in that from a thread here a couple months ago.

I actually have watched a movie recently, if I count the Honeyboy Edwards documentary I watched on DVD.

Saw "The Wrestler" a while back.

Okay, it's a couple of years old i guess.

but pretty good.



Saw "The Godfather" recently

Okay, it's more than a couple of years old.

but pretty good.

so, who killed the godfather?

I know it was the little kid, who lured him into the garden, the doused him insecticide.

that part is clear, but was he working alone? or was he put up to it?

I haven't seen either, but Inglorious Bastards sounds appropriate.

I suppose it would come down to the mood your in now, that's usually what determines what I'm going to watch.

Both movies look good, but Inglorious Basterds might be a little too heavy, might need to watch that one with a friend, I'd go with Little Miss Sunshine.

Either way, let us know which one you choose and give us a review.

"LIttle Miss" is great. I thought "Inglorious" was hit and miss.

I am ready to watch Woody Allen's "Crimes and Misdemeanors" once again. That movie kills me.

In an interiew before the Oscars he basically said he is the dude; was just fortunate enought to have Lloyd Bridged for a dad

1 - Hurt Locker was excellent. Really well edited

2 - Crazy Heart - Jeff was great. Story was predicatble. Am I the only one who felt he had a lot of Dickey Betts in him?

3 - Shutter Island - good, not great. Have to hand it to Scorcese. For him this was a mediocre film - for most directors this would have been a lifetime achievement

4 - probably going to see Greenberg this weekend. The Mrs. is real excited; something in the trailer makes me think it's going to be too whiney.

5 - TO DIGRESS I GOT TO EAT AT THE FAMOUS RAO'S RESTAURANT ON 114/1 IN NYC YESTERDAY. NEIGHBORHOOD MAKES UPT LOOK SAFE. NEED CONNECTIONS (AS IN SCORCESE) TO GET IN. SOMEHOW A COUSIN OF THE MOTHER IN LAW OF MY SCIENTOLOGIST UNCLE KNEW SOMEONE. FOOD WAS REAL GOOD - MADE GREAT BY THE KARMA AND EXCLUSIVITY. THE WAITER OFFERED A TASTE OF THE WINE FIRST - I KIND OF SAID I IMAGINE NO ONE HERE EVER SENDS THE WINE BACK EVEN IF IT;S BAD - AND IT WAS GOOD. P.S. I WOULD HAVE TRADED IT TO BE AT THE 3/20 SHOW.

Well i went with Little Miss Sunshine first, I might see one or two more before I go to bed.

I'm about half way through and it has been very thought provoking...I expected a comedy.

So far, it's been great.

Thanks for the review, looks like another flick I should check out, will add it to the list. Movies that are thought provoking are some of my favorites, and I suppose that was the intention.

...and it was a very good movie.

But in truth the ending was horrible.

Have you ever watched a film that was great all the way up until the very end?

The ending to this film was bad.

anna, while i liked that movie, I felt that way about Inglorious: thought-provoking, some great scenes, lame ending.

"O Brother Where Art Thou" is just flat-out amazing!!! That one never gets old.

I saw Brother about 10 years ago when it first came out and liked it but can't remember too much about it.

Should I give it another go?

I loved the soundtrack, but then getting me to like country of any kind is a lot like getting a child to like ice cream===no problem at all.
