    Super Size Me - made me swear off fast food again (just like it did when I saw it in the theater!)

    Tortilla Soup - family drama with Hector Elizondo playing a widower with 3 grown daughters

    Saved! - I should have just bought it instead of renting it since the cost of a movie ticket and a movie rental add up to about the cost of the DVD. LOVE this movie!

    Lucky 13 - cute little indie film with Lauren Graham. The ending was sort of "huh?," but overall, not too bad.

    I really wanted to rent Stage Beauty with Clare Danes and Billy Crudup, but it was all out. Has anyone seen it? I admit I'm curious since this was the film where they met and got together (and he left Mary Louise Parker when she was pregnant with his child).

    BTW - I remember seeing the original Stepford Wives when I was a kid and it scared the snot out of me!
    Anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that 'my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.' - Isaac Asimov

    I was thinking of the immortal words of Socrates, who said, "... I drank what?"

    I rented Garden State. While I liked parts of it, I didn't get most of it. I seemed to have missed something, basically I missed why people were raving about it.

    Napoleon Dynamite- my daughter rented it. I lasted about 15 minutes but the guy's whining voice just did me in. I couldn't listen to him any more. She thought it was kind of funny.

    "House of Blue Daggers" was pretty good , visually stimulating and poetic like a ballet.

    Jersey Girl



    Overall it was pretty sweet. Enjoyable.

    Nine Lives



    Sort of a bland slasher flick, the setting is good, very atmospheric, has some creepy moments, but could have been much better.

    Ghost in the Machine - Innocence

    Mean Girls

    Confessions of a Teenaged Drama Queen

    I know, it was sort of a Lindsay Lohan fest. Every once in a while I just gotta indulge the teenage girl in me...

    The Village - decent movie

    Exorcist:The Beginning - don't bother

    The Notebook - had me bawling like a baby!
    It was me. I let the dogs out.

    Perfect Strangers - Odd, odd, odd movie. Would not recommend it.

    Exorcist - The Beginning - I liked it, if you take into account that it's a horror movie and not a historical account.

    Rise of the Phoenix - Surprisingly, I liked it. It was also weird to see Giovanni Ribisi in such a departure from his usual roles.
    If you go through a lot of hammers each month, I don't think it necessarily means you're a hard worker.
    It may just mean that you have a lot to learn about proper hammer maintenance.

    Closer
    All I can say is this movie puts a real damper on love.
    No sex, just a lot of raw talk. Rated R for a reason.
