Oh my gosh!
I saw "The Mist" awhile ago.
So creepy.
The ending was so good.
But it was kind of sad though.

The ending was a shocker , not your typical Hollywood ending , and that mad Bible bashing women was really scary

I saw Mama Mia the other day. It was cute. Not as good as the play, but still fun. And oh yeah, The Dark Knight.

I want to see 1984 again. Maybe I'll get it on Netflix. This is a movie I think would be cool if they redid it. It's certainly more relevant today than when both the book and the movies came out.

Marcia Gay Harden. She's a brilliant actress. I love her! Best thing about that movie probably. It's hard to do a Stephen King story right.

Agree Sandra i liked her performance very much in this film .

I watched Malcolm McDowell in Lindsey Anderson's "O Lucky Man" last night , what a cinematic masterpiece , this film is it's  just so surreal .
And it's got a very foxy looking Helen Mirren in an early role and dear old Aurther Lowe and Sir Ralph Richardson giving great perfomances .
Alan Price's musical score is also very good .

Funny Games with Michael Pitt, Brady Corbet, Naiomi Watts, and Tim Roth. This is a movie where it is really to describe what the movie is about  and still make it sound as good as it was. It was a perfect balance of pshycotic brilliance with a dash of comedy. Because what they were doing was sick and twisted but you found yourself laughing at points and never really hating them. The director was also brilliant in how he just made it what it was, and it is a screen by screen remake of the original which came out in 1997. It's hard to explain but here's the trailor and it is worth watchng.

An oldie? What's something like The Breakfast Club than? Ancient?  ;)


Just thought of that one because of the annoying new JC Penny commercial where they mimic scenes from the movie. All of a sudden the eighties are retro.

I saw Good Will Hunting again, I guess for the 10th time or something like that. Man, I love that movie... The story is really cheesy, if I would've been an actor or director and would've gotten the script on paper, I probably would've rejected it... But Gus Van Sant managed to turn it in to one of my all-time favorite movies. Has hand down my all time favorite soundtrack, probably my favorite closing scene and I guess Robin Williams plays the best role I've ever seen anyone play.

Gus Van Sant he directed My Own Private Idaho and Last Days. Two good movies, in my own opinion.

10 Things I Hate About You isn't really old, it came out in like 2001, didn't it? I like that movie, but I can't stand how the poem at then end lists way more than 10 things. But besides that it is a cute little movie.

I love The Breakfast Club!

Me too. Incredible how they made such a great movie with five actors and a high school library... And the characters are so good... Last time I saw that movie I realized that you really just have to ask anyone who has seen that movie which character(s) of The Breakfast Club he or she relates to the most, and you pretty much know what kind of person he or she is...

The Bucket List was very cute. Made me cry a little too! I thought I was gonna hate No Country for Old Men, but I LOVED it!! It was an amazing movie. I was just talking about this movie the other day with the friends I went to see The Dark Knight with! We were comparing actual Oscar caliber performances. Javier Bardem definitely deserved his! And Josh Brolin was pretty great too. Hope you enjoy them!  :)

Oh, and I saw The Pianist a few days ago. It's always hard to watch those 2nd World War movies...

I love John Hughes' eighties teen angst films!!! He really caught teen life at that time pretty accurately.

I related to the Judd Nelson character most at that time, with a little of the Ally Sheedy character thrown in. Don't know what that says, but I've changed a lot since then.  ;D

I think that at high school, I was a combination of Ally Sheedy's and Anthony Michael Hall's character. Which would make me the ultimate nerd...  :-/ ;D
