I've seen The Departed, Children of Men, and Stranger than Fiction, and they all are pretty good. I realy liked Children of Men. I would like to see The Pursuit of Happiness.

The movie would be like an hour long if they turned the slow motion parts into regular. Not saying it was a bad movie or subpar, but I don't think it wasn't as great as everyone puts it out to be.

I'll agree that Blood Diamond was an awesome. One of the best movies I've seen in a while.

Lord of War and Blood Diamond are two of the best political movies all-time, IMO. Syriana, Hotel Rwanda are great also.

Sign up with Blockbuster Total Access.... You can take the movies you get in the mail and take them to your local blockbuster and get a free in-store rental for each of them, then they send them back for you themselves, and your movies in your online quene are to your house in 2 days, then repeat..


Much better than Netflix

Don't know about you guys, but I CANT WAIT for "The Fountain" to come out.

May 15!

Actually picked up the graphic novel at barnes and nobles. Apparently came out before, or around the same time, as the movie. Very cool artwork. Check it out if you're into the movie.

Anybody seen My Super Ex-Girlfriend? Not the greatest movie, but to see how psyhotic Uma Thurman can be was enough to watch it.

Loved the camera work in Children of Men. The ending was bad but compared to the book it was very good.

The Prestige was awesome. Great cast, and a little mystery if you don't figure it out first.

Unfortunately, I saw 300 with a female and, as a result, never got the full, "I wanna go drop kick an usher" feeling that I usually get after seeing action/adventure movies. I'm still trying to go see it in IMAX... I'll probably do so this weekend...
