Yoffy lifts a finger...
We rented Hotel Rwanda this weekend too.
I agree with Miss F, I'd definitely recommend it.
Blockbuster was out of Suspect Zero and The Woodsman which I wanted to rent, so I'm hoping to get to see both next weekend.

I watched Hotel Rwanda and The Woodsman. I agree Hotel Rwanda is a very powerful movie. The Woodsman gave me the creeps, the story of a depressed child molester
(Kevin Bacon) is too real in light of todays headlines.
I liked Ocean's 12, but not as much as Ocean's 11. Julia Roberts looked bad, real bad.

Yesterday I rented House of flying Daggers which was a very special movie and now one of my favourites. The acting was great and overall HOFD was a humble masterpiece. And I agree with you Noreen, Ocean's 12 wasn't as good as Ocean's 11.

I just watched Bad Education directed by Pedro Almodóvar. If you like foreign films with subtitles and a little film noir you might like this. Lots of surprises, plus Gael García Bernal! The movie may not be for everyone though.

I watched this movie for the first time last weekend and I swear I have never cried so hard in a movie! SO ROMANTIC! I absolutely loved it!
Intense. Really. That is all I have to say about this movie.

I rented In My Skin, a powerful French film exploring issues of body image and obsession through a seemingly normal woman, an intelligent executive in a loving relationship, who nevertheless descends into a dark world of self-mutilation. Incredible acting, but deeply, deeply disturbing. No one else wanted to watch this with me, so I watched it ALONE in the MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT which was a bad, bad move. As a horror fan, I have a high tolerance for cinematic gore and graphic violence, but I had a lot of trouble watching this--I seriously had a cringe on my face for a solid 90 minutes. The most troubling and sinister thing about this movie is that it's not really a "horror" film, in the traditional sense. It's Esther who is victimizing herself, not some chainsaw-wielding wacko--which is far more frightening and insidious and itself an interesting comment on how women in modern society have come to objectify their own bodies.
On the lighter side, we also watched Criminal (good) and Sideways (great!!!). It was like a double feature of two of my favorite character actors (John C. Reilly, Paul Giamatti) in small, smart, snappily entertaining films.

30+ Nicole Kidman believes a 10 year old boy that was born at the same time her husband died is his reincarnation, or I should say the boy convinces her he her husband.
The movie is slow. the people show no emotion, and the camera hangs on faces for long periods of time. It's more like a play than a movie.
What exactly a 30 year old, rich and engaged woman is supposed to do with a 10 year old husband never becomes clear. One scene shows them in her bathtub, but it's handled well.
