Last movie was Casino Royale w/Daniel Craig. He's my favorite Bond so far. Quite fun to watch. Except for the torture and drowning. Still, a good flick.
I'm supposed to be watching disc 2 of Buffy, season 3, but I haven't put it in for months. May have to start over, now.

I have my Netflix discs waiting at home.  I am going back and forth between Wanted and the Fountain. It depends on which one my fiance want to see more as tonight is School Bingo night for the 7 year old so I will probably be watching alone.

WAR, INC. Kind of a weird movie. Obviously heavily satrical in places, played completely straight in others. Hilary Duff was actually believable as a Middle Eastern pop icon and showed some acting chops during some emotional scenes. Dan Ackroyd did a great Dick Cheney impression. Ben Kingsley reminded me of Gary Oldman's character in The Fifth Element. Marisa Tomei was cute too.

Some friends loaned us WAR, INC. last week, Corey -- it's on our "to be watched" pile for this coming weekend.  Big fan of John Cusak, and Marisa Tomei is always a good thing.

Finished Indiana Jones: The Adventure Collection with The Last Crusade today. I'd place it somewhere on the thin slice separating Raiders and Temple in my order of preference.

Yeah John, I'm still not sure what to think of it. I am a huge Cusak fan too (and I like his politics as well). It was a great idea for a movie, but I'm not sure if the execution was there.

Tenacious D: The Complete Masterworks.

The D in concert, and they put on a really fun show. Great songs, great work by JB and KG and Lee, the only disappointment is that there weren't some guest stars. Would have loved to have seen Dave Grohl, Dio, Meatloaf... anybody really, to make the show seem less like their normal show and more like a special event.

The Thing, with commentary by Carpenter and Russell, still the best way to watch that movie.

I just watched Nosferatu last night.  Interesting!  I was surprised at how similar it was to Dracula.  I'd heard it was basically an unlicensed adaptation of Stoker's material but I didn't know it was that much like it.  I think it clocks in as the oldest movie (1922) I've ever watched by a full seven years!  I don't think I'd sit and watch the whole thing again but it was nice to finally see.

THE BUCKET LIST was the last disc I had in.  I enjoyed it. Some people complained that it was a little heavy, but it had to be considering the subject matter.

Next up: CLOVERFIELD

I think this is a great thread to be the first sticky in the movie section.  We can continually talk about movies we've rented or bought and get ideas for things that are off the radar or blockbusters we missed the first time 'round.

So stickied it is!

One of my all time favorites.  My wife and I took that movie with us to the hospital to watch while waiting for the birth of our first child.

The Thing
*********

When I was in middle school a friend and I were watching it on cable.  His father came in and asked what the movie was about.  I said, "An orgasm that takes over people's bodies."  Realizing I said ORGASM instead of ORGANISM I was stuttering and stammering trying to correct myself.  It was one of those akward teenage moments.

Disc 2 of MAGNUM PI: Season 1. The show started pretty slow ( and I'm surprised at a) how many episodes from the first season I hadn't seen and b) there was another theme song for the first dozen episodes) but it's really picking up and has been becoming the show I remember and love.

Fight Club

Not long ago, JB asked if enough time had passed since 9/11. Given that this movie is about the very things that were targeted on 9/11, will enough time ever pass? Still, if you try to ignore Project Mayhem, its a strangely enjoyable movie.

Funniest thing to me: most people I talk to don't understand why the Narrator survives while Tyler utters those famous last words: "Whats that smell?"

Yeah. I came up with a thread idea that was stickied! I will go down in the annals of history! And I love the ideas that keep coming up.  My Netflix queue is becoming enormous.

So last night we watched Prince Caspian after bingo night.  I enjoyed it. I was surprised with the amount of death, but I thought it was handled well.  Cameron had a few questions and we were happy to field them and help with his understanding. I haven't read the books, but the first two movies are prompting us to. So I am looking forward to the comparison.

Right now I am taking a break from watching Gamers while I switch laundry. It is a mockumentary about a group of RPGers who have been playing for 23 years. I find it funny because I see some of my best and worst moments as a gamer. It also reminds me a bit of Blackballed and King of Kong, if you enjoyed those.

Interesting question Michael.  I tried to watch Fight Club again several years ago and had a difficult time. I hadn't thought about it though and recently caught it again on G4 and 9/11 didn't even enter my mind.
