    My wife talked me into seeing Juno. What a pretentious, over-the-top waste of talent.

    She talked me into seeing Little Miss Sunshine, too, a couple of years ago. Another well intentioned, feel-good movie that just drowns in being way too cute. Makes my head want to explode.

    How about this one.

    Trees Lounge by Steve Buscemi.

    Or perhaps one of the best movies released in the last 20 years, Chicken Run.

    What ever you do...don't watch 'The Good Shepard'. That is three hours of my life I'll never get back.

    I've seen Blood Diamond a few times, I'm actually quite impressed with Leo. He went from being a young punk in sappy movies, to a pretty gritty actor.

    :ditto: I wish we had turned it off about 5 minutes into it.

    We just saw Kiss Kiss Bang Bang and loved it. Not a new movie but one someone recommended to us and laughed the whole way through.

    Just watched the new Die Hard movie. I was a little wary of it because of all the third rate retreads lately, but it kicked ass. Non-stop action from minute one. I'd say it was better than the original and that's saying something.

    If you want a great classic, look for Prisoner Of Second Ave.
