If you like politics, get "The War Room." It's a behind-the-scenes documentary about the '92 Clinton campaign, and it is AWESOME. Reality-TV style. You get to see Bill Clinton sitting around in his bathrobe, eating Cheerios, reading the Sports page, and strategizing about how to beat Bush.

It won a bunch of awards for Best Documentary for that year, too. Regardless of which party you support, it'll get you fired up for 2008.

Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants was pretty good.

Murderball was great.

My queue is running low, and I need to update it soon but I have no idea what to add to it. I don't go to the movies regularly, nor do I watch tv regularly, so I've missed out on some stuff that you'd think everyone has seen by now. Any recommendations?

sidenote: I know this sounds weird...but at the moment I get a really bad reaction from even the sight of a gun, so I'm trying to avoid any movies that may have guns (even if they don't shoot.)

Thanks in advance!
The 5 people you meet in heaven! It was really good. I didn't expect that. It does have guns though...there is a war scene. Sorry

I love the Sisterhood books - Ann Brashares does a great job making the characters multi-dimensional, and gives them well-done, progressively-adult storylines as the books progress. I adored the movie and would love if they did more.

They're already working on the sequel, America Ferrara wanted to do a different movie but she was obligated to do the sequel.

I you martha

I watched Curse of the Golden Flower last night. Melodramatic and obscenely beautiful. Worth seeing.

The Holiday, Marie Antoinette, Pursuit of Happyness were good movies, imo.

I liked Real Women have curves so much that I saw it twice in 2 days.

And I still haven't seen Sisterhood yet but now I want to see it.

I'll third the rec for Real Women Have Curves.

If you want a good foreign film with some steamy sex, there's alwasy Y Tu Mama Tambien.

Or, for that matter, how about Talk To Her or All About My Mother? Volver was excellent as well, but there's a big scene of violence that's crucial to the plot. No guns, though, as far as I can remember.

Movies that I recently watched on Netflix and rated 5 stars:

Inside Man
Blood Diamond
The Insider
L.A. Confidential
Freeway
The Devil Wears Prada
Memento
Love Actually

All of these are excellent movies and definitely worth the watch.

Yeahhhh, but she's trying to avoid stuff with guns.

So uh ... Devil Wears Prada and Love, Actually.

I love Love, Actually. Silly but fun and charming.

Lance

I guessed you missed the thread in here

where unico's good friend was the first gun murder victim at Virginia Tech

where she is still a student


I would not recommend Curse, no guns, but hundreds of bloody killings

We watched a film called "Moolaade" during a Francophone film festival on campus last year. It is set in W. Africa (could be Mali, Senegal, or Guinea) and revolves around life in a small village and specifically deals with the topic of female circumcision. While that may not sound like a "fun" topic for a movie (and it's not), the film itself is really quite inspiring and deals with the topic and the characters in a very believable way. I didn't really want to see the film going in, but I was very glad that I did. The director Ousmane Sembene (from Senegal) really captures a lot of the social dynamics in West African village communities particularly the changing realities between men and women, between old ways and new ways, between tradition and technology. Indeed there was quite a lot of humor interwoven into the dialogue, which surprised me. Oh and the dialogue was all in Bambara (with English subtitles) which really made me homesick. I would definitely recommend this film.
