    I do the blockbuster online thing & LOVE it!

    My que is empty though. Can anyone suggest a few good movies? We like most anything EXCEPT graphic bloody gore or slapstick.

    My fav movie in a very long time was Marie Antoinette with Kirsten Dunst.

    Tab as a Christian I have a very hard time finding movies to watch so most of the time my wife picks them. One we just watched from Blockbuster was The invasion with Nicole Kidman, its kinda sci-fi but not a bad remake of Body snatchers.

    oooh i love movies...had no cable for a few years, so Im well versed in movies...for the most part (im sure others have waaaaaay better knowledge than me.)


    some i enjoyed:

    The Prestige

    Elizabeth (just saw this the other night...very good..about the Virgin Queen)

    1984

    Braveheart (may be a little bloody at times)

    The Godfather (I II III) (ditto)

    Lethal weopon 4

    (when it comes out...Vantage point....WOW good movie)

    hmmm what else....I know so many but I watch a lot of comedy movies you may not be into...such as Grandmas Boy, SuperBad..


    what do you think??


    also I reccommend if you like Led Zepplin, rent some of the live concert vids, cooooool


    or Jethro Tull (I was named after Ian Anderson!)--wonder if anyone has ever listened/hearf of them??


    theyve got a lot of good surf videos you can rent too (not sure if your into that type of thing!)



    cant think of any more at this time but im sure ill chime in with a few others!

    I'm in the same boat as Ian, I haven't had cable for six years (I cancelled it because the girls were watching too much TV.. I'm the meanest parent in the world... now that they're grown, I still haven't bothered to get the cable back!)
    I just rented "Dan in Real Life" and I really liked it. The Holiday with Kate winslet and jack black was really good to....

    Here are a few of my faves although they are not that recent:

    Billy Elliot
    Little Miss Sunshine
    American History X (some sex, and terrible violence beware)
    The Illusionist
    Rounders (mainly because it has my pretend celebrity boyfriend edward norton)
    Good Will Hunting- Casey Afleck is awesome in this movie, and the soundtrack with all the elliot smith songs is amazing..
    Men of Honor- Roberth Dinero and cuba gooding jr.. Predictable but very good
    Cider house rules (warning very strong themes here including abortion) Excellent adaptation of John Irving's book. Loved it.
    Swingers- Vince Vaughn is so money baby.
    Escape from new york... an oldie but a goodie
    Donnie Darko

    And sports movies get their own category...recommended sports movies:

    Miracle (hockey)
    Rudy (football)
    Glory Road(basketball) kids love it
    Hoosiers(basketball)
    Reversal (wrestling)very low budget but very well done
    Remember the Titans (football) kids love it
    Breaking Away (bicycle) young dennis quaid is in this by the way
    Cutting edge (figure skating) corny and predictable. It is not a great movie, yet strangly I have seen it many many times, and I love it.

    Hey....Missjulesdid...I'll fight you for Ed Norton. :wink: He's my pretend boyfriend too!!!!

    I will give money a try. Once I'm sitting still I usually fall asleep though. I think I had to watch prestige about 6 times before I saw the whole thing. I kept trying and it was worth it. Great movie!

    Joanne,
    If you haven't seen Down in the Valley, The 25th hour , and the Painted Veil starring our boy, you must go rent them immediately.

    They're not well known films, but they're all good, and very different from each other. He's so versitile, kind of reminds me of Daniel Day Lewis in that respect.

    The man is pretty nearly perfect. Yale graduate, Golden Globe winner, Activist for affordable housing and renewable energy, he takes the subway, he makes soap, and my Danielle says he's a good tipper too. (she cut his hair once). The only thing I can find wrong with him is that he dated Courtney Love!

    Little Miss Sunshine was an awesome movie missjulesdid!!! I recently re-watched Everything Illuminated, also a great movie. I have a hard time going to movies or even renting them to watch at home, it's the time committment thing, so it has to come highly recommended for me to watch. We just bought and watched "Into the Wild" - the book is wonderful, by Bill Bryson and the movie was directed by Sean Penn. It's a true story. Worth the watch. k

    Mandy - did you find it odd that Into The Wild was shunned???? Where we are, it didn't EVEN make it into the theaters and when it came to Columbus, it was here for a very short period of time. Sean Penn did a wonderful job directing it. I have to correct myself tho....Bill Bryson did NOT write Into the Wild, It was written by Jon Krakaur. DUH!! k
