I just watched Saw II and In Her Shoes...and I have to say...
Saw II was underwhelming,but I think the reason it was so lackluster is because it was just a setup for Saw III.
Even though I am not a fan of Cameron Diaz,I really liked In Her Shoes. I lurve Toni Collette and I thought that the reason this movie was not more popular is because it was marketed as a comedy instead of a drama.
Kudos to Cameron (Mrs. Timberlake?) for a great performance. I think if it was a weaker year,she may even have been nominated for an Academy Award.
Bambi II: Really cute Disney movie, has shades of Finding Nemo as it is about how Bambi and his father learn to live with and love each other after Bambi's mother's death. This takes place the winter/spring after the great fire. All of our old favs are back like Thumper, Flower, and Faline plus a few new characters including Rono-a rival for Bambi. Small children will love this movie-a little scary with a couple hunting scenes w/dogs, but overall a really good new movie.
Doom - it was okay for a video game-based movie. Some decent action, and I think it was the first time I've heard The Rock curse in a movie.
Assault on Precinct 13 - another good cops vs. dirty cops movie, except the good guys get a little help from the criminals. Not bad, but I didn't expect them to kill off so many of the characters near the end.
It was me. I let the dogs out.
I recently watched "Racing Stripes" what a good movie. If you, or your family loved "Babe" you will also enjoy this one.
I used to play the game Doom (and Wolfenstein) back in the day, yo!
The other night, I finally saw MirrorMask: it's a visually stunning, fantasy collaboration between some of my longtime favorite talents (writer Neil Gaiman, artist Dave McKean, and the Jim Henson creature workshop). It was sort of Alice in Wonderland meets Wizard of Oz meets Labyrinth meets Cirque De Soleil meets The City of Lost Children. With Neil and Dave working on their first live-action feature together, I had honestly expected a bit more of a tour de force. This was much more of a children's film than I'd thought (I was thinking it would be more along the lines of the darker moments in Sandman) but it was sweet little movie. I still found it to be enchanting, witty (in a Python meets Carroll way), at times moving, and of course above all--beautiful. It was truly like watching McKean's artwork come to life, which in itself is an amazing feat.

Well, i dont rent movies anymore, but the last one I bought was RENT. And befor that, the Wallace and Gromit movie, Corpse Bride (hey, i'm an animation major. that's my excuse and i'm stickin to it) and Doom (that one was for my dad)
The Cave - by the time I got to the video store eveything I wanted was gone. The Cave was a waste of time. The only redeeming thing about it was Eddie Cibrian.
