What are the best & worst movies you've RENTED this month?

I'm pretty selective about what I go see-but renting, I usually see just about anything.

Unfortunately, that sometimes means seeing some stinkers!

This month-I have to say-Worst

State And Main
America's Sweethearts
Many other bad ones I have forgotten

Best

Billy Elliot
You Can Count On Me
Memento
Men Of Honor

------------------
If you are really good friends with The Edge, you can just call him The~ Adam

Hey-I forgot Knight's Tale-I couldn't even sit through that one, and so many people seemed to like it. And I almost rented Family Man-but, just me personally-not a big Nicolas Cage fan.

When you've rented so many, you get desperate sometimes!

And I just rented Legally Blonde-very cute-I love Reese Witherspoon-she's underrated as an actress IMO-if anyone's ever seen Election, I think she was so good in that.

She was also good in Pleasantville-I liked that one too.

As for worst... we rented Swordfish the other night... I guess it wasnt that bad, except I have no idea what the hell happened.

Duets was cute, and I loved Almost Famous.

Great topic!

I have lagged lately in rentals, but I'll add my picks:

Best: Memento
Almost Famous (actually, I own this, but I just watched it again while I was in TN so I'll add it)

Worst: Cats and Dogs
Shrek

I just LOVE Almost Famous-excellent movie!

Kate Hudson is just too adorable.

I only left it off my list because I rented it a few months ago. Should have just made the thread title 'lately'.

Another one I liked was 'Best In Show'-strange, but funny.

I adored Almost Famous!

Have you or anyone you know seen the Director's Cut Cameron Crowe just released of it? Supposedly the film is now 3 hours long or something?... Wish I had known about the new Cut; I wouldnt have bought the original version.

No-I didn't know about that-thanks for posting that!

I was just sitting here thinking I should buy that DVD-I'll get the director's cut version if I do.

I like Cameron Crowe movies-Vanilla Sky comes out in a couple of weeks.

It wasn't this month, but quite possibly the worst movie I've rented this year is Autumn in New York (Winona Ryder and Richard Gere). Talk about a serious lack of onscreen chemistry - that movie was a disaster.

Yay!!! Yummy Jason Lee pics-woohoo! Let's turn this into an alternative PLEBA-for guys who aren't in U2. LOL

Let's see...Jason, Guy, etc. Great pics, Gina!! And don't think I've forgotten about Guy in PLEBA later tonight!

Best:

The Dish - really funny and touching.

Worst:

Contagion (or The Contaminated Man) - do NOT go there. Don't be fooled by the cast (William Hurt, Peter Weller and Natascha McElhone), this film has a weak plot, loads of scenes to stretch the time out and crap characters.

I also saw Red Planet which wasn't as bad as the critics said.

Rain from Heaven.

I don't need the smell of incense in the morning haze. Let's do the War on Drugs.
