    End Game: Cuba Gooding Jr, Angie Harmon and James Woods
    About a Secret Service Agent and a Reporter who get together to solve who killed the President. I liked it. The movie was fast paced and covered alot of ground. I was able to figure out the ending, but I still enjoyed it.

    Read the book, much better

    I got Marie Antoinette last night and well... It was odd. I love the story, but the music was an attempt in my opinion to be like Knights Tale.. to modern for the setting. Loved the dresses! But I am female after all. Not one of the actors had any chemistry with one another. It was a very disconnected movie all the way around. Ohh.. not to mention sub-par acting.

    Got The Curse of The Golden Flower, and can't express how beautiful this movie was given the plot. If you liked Hero or Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon, this is a must see.

    Accepted: cute but entirely unbelievable movie. I wasn't expecting much and this certainly led me to think better of it.
    Let's Go To Prison: Crass, lewd, very tell it like it is. Not for everyone, but I thought it was actually alright. Will Arnett's great! I'd recommend it for anyone who likes these type of movies.
    Death Tunnel: Terrible. Absolutely terrible horror movie. Though it really had my blood pumping and my heart rate up because of the premise of being trapped in a creepy/haunted place. The ending is somewhat surprising. But not worth it.
    Red Eye: Yes, very late seeing this, but I really didn't like it. I couldn't get past Cillian's eyes. They were just too distracting. Watched most of this on fast forward.
    The Covenant: It was okay for the type of movie it was, but it really wasn't that great.
    Crank: Alright for the movie it was, but wouldn't win any awards. Didn't mind all the action thought!
    The Guardian: Not that bad either. A tad long for me and I'm not a big fan of Ashton Kutcher, but overall not bad.

    Casino Royale and Blood diamond. Both very good and entertaining movies. In my eyes, Leonardo DiCaprio is still not taken as seriously by the public as he should be. He is a great actor.

    I think Leo is getting taken more seriously with The Departed and Blood Diamond, now. He was great in both

    I agree. In Hollywood, I think that Leo is taken seriously. If he's not by the general public, it's due to a perception that someone his age can't be at the top of his game. But Leo plays his public persona very smart, not getting caught up in the party lifestyle that many in Hollywood his age do. He just continues to put in great work, and is patient in letting people discover his talent in their own time frame. Let's not forget, Scorcesse has cast him how many times now? People undoubtedly take Scorcesse seriously, and I think that in Hollywood, when you have respected people like him in your corner, the rest follow suit.

    Blood Diamond: I just saw this today. I agree it's a very good movie. Leo was great in it and I think it's really solidified his place as an actor with the hollywood elite.
    The Night Listener: It was okay. Glad it was as short as it was. But overall, I didn't really like it. It seemed to lack some kind of plot with the characters just thrown in.
    King Kong: I liked it, but it was far far too long. They really need to have shortened it. I was getting restless and I wasn't stuck at a theatre.

    I watched all three of these on cable rather than renting them. But since they all could be rented, I figure the fit here.

    The Lake House: I think it may have been a good love story if only they hadn't created this whole mystery of "how are they communicating from 2 years apart" that they NEVER addressed. You just can't include a plot element like that, and then not even acknowledge that it's not normal!

    United 93: I found the lack of acting skills in the real life people playing themselves a bit distracting in the beginning. But once I got past that, I thought it was incredible. I have never been able to get through any of the movies or documentaries about that flight before, because I get so emotionally wrapped up in knowing what will happen that I can't take getting to "know" the passengers. This was done in such a way that I felt hte emotional connection, but could still get through it. I'm not sure how Paul Greengrass did that, but I give him a lot of credit for getting it done.

    Network: This is one of those movies I'd wanted to see for a long time because of the cultural references that are always made to it. Holy cow does it apply to today's world!!!! Anyone who says that the state of the media today is a new development should watch (or re-watch) this movie. It is SO true to today's world that there's no doubt we've been in this state for much longer than most are willing to admit!
