World Trade Center - 9/10

This is the first Oliver Stone movie I've ever seen....and I have to say that I've never cried so much as I have with this one. This movie was more tramatic to me than seeing the actual footage was 5 years ago cause of the fact I was inside the building when it went down along with the two main characters. Very good movie though.

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974) - 7/10

I liked it despite the campy acting, but that's expected with low-budget movies from the 70s. This is the only movie that has ever made me feel nauseated. Ugh, that infamous dinner scene

Has anyone seen the remake? I've been interested in checking it out. I'll skip it if it sucks.

I've seen the remake....it's what you expect of a big budgeted hollywood remake. Some parts of it is cool....but it's what you expect. I like the original too.

Snakes on a Plane.

I have no idea how to rate this one, honestly. It was that absurd, but if you need to not think about life for a couple of hours and just sit with a group of people to share an absurd experience with, go for it!

Little Miss Sunshine - 10/10

Hilarious - you all were so right
Superfreak
...in the trunk

First thing we noticed at the end of the movie was the writer, Michael Arndt. He may be the father of one of my daughter's friends. Hard to find info on him on the internet, but we found out he was a first time writer (could be) and sold his script for $250,000. And we did hear that he recently did some remodeling Waiting for a callback from a mutual Mom to confirm if this is one & the same person. We know he has been doing Shakepeare in the Park in the past years, and worked in the drama dept. (I believe) in a nearby college

Invincible

10/10

First movie I've seen to accurately portray South Philadelphia. Very real. Great bar scenes. Great fan scenes. I'm biased 'cause the last Eagles movie was Trash Picking Field Goal Kicking Philadelphia Phenomenon and we needed to put that behind us.

saw that movie today, it was alright but nothing special.

I was waiting for something great to happen, and then it ended.

And I love Elizabeth Banks (Janet), she was great in The 40 Year Old Virgin, and I hear she was good in Slither. I hope she's the "Next Big Thing" pretty soon.

The original one did nothing for me but the remake scared the absolute hell out of me. Believe it's worth the time to time to watch it.

I watched Paper Clips earlier this evening. It's a documentary about 8th graders in a rural, very homogenous part of Tennessee who, while studying the Holocaust, decide to try to collect 6 million paper clips to memorialize the 6 million Jewish people who died in concentration camps.

It's a very powerful film--simple but stunning. The students were so transformed by the experience, and by the letters and paper clips they received from people all over the world. The end of the movie takes place in the fall of 2001, and the unity shown by the students and the community is especially uplifting.

I'd recommend this movie to anyone, especially families. It's a very powerful reminder about the importance of honoring the past and how the past can inform our lives now. 9.75/10

(I wanted just a few more of the letters they received, which was my only complaint. Considering it's only 96 minutes, I think they could've included a few more)

Great review, BonoIsMyMuse . That documentary has been in my Netflix queue for a couple of weeks now. I'm definitely going to bump it up.

Crank - 7.5/10

Non-stop action flick with loads of ridiculous over-the-top action sequences and hilarious scenes. I had absolutely no intention seeing this movie tonight, but I'm actually glad I did. Like most action movies it lacks a sensible plot, but I really didn't care. It was an entertaining movie from start to finish. The reactive audience I watched it with made the atmosphere enjoyable.

It was a movie about a special teamer - that's as great as it gets.

I loved his friends because those guys were true Philadelphians. They had the personalities down. Rarely do they get it right.

the sentinel
2/10
filmed like a tv show, boring and useless tv plot. i've never watched 24, but please tell me it's not that lame. and there was only one explosion. what's up with that?

l.a. confidential
5/10
way too long. the mock update film noir style looked nice, but the story line was only mildly entertaining.

the matador
9/10
absolutely funny stuff. cracked-out plot, but not so cracked out it was stupid. and the goofy suits and colors didn't come off as pretentious arty garbage.

Pierce Brosnan sucked in that movie.
