What kind of movie are you looking for? I just saw one that was a year or two old called "Wit" that was excellent, but it's about a woman dealing with cancer so it's not much of a pick me up. "Failure to Launch" was a cute romantic comedy. What do you like?

I believe Match Point is out on video. It's a very good mystery/intrigue movie. I can usually figure out this type of movie while watching it, but this one kept me guessing.

Match Point is a good movie...keeps you wondering how it's going to end...

We watched it last night, I didn't like it. I was hoping for a real "inside the bank" man movie.

And, I generally like Denzel.

We just watched "Failure to Launch", it was pretty funny. Also, Syriana was good.

I watched an odd movie with Tommy Lee Jones in it. It was interesting, it had an odd name too. The three burials of Melquiades Estrada. I got it because Tommy Lee Jones usually has good movies.

I donít think itís out yet, but when it is, rent Nacho Libre.

I only suggest this because it would help me sleep at night knowing that others have waisted their money on this movie as well, I wonít feel so cheated.

Running Scared was surprisingly good. Hasn't been out too long.
You might like it if you liked Reservoir Dogs, Kill Bill, etc. Lots of violence and language...

The Libertine is good for all you costume drama, Johnny Depp loving people.

This is an old one, but if you are wanting something romantic rent Immortal Beloved. That movie always gets my blood flowing.

Last week I rented a classic: American Graffiti. Since most of you are probably a lot younger than me, the movie came out in 1972. Directed by George Lucas and produced by Francis Ford Coppola, it starred a lot of young actors who would go on to become famous: Ron Howard, Richard Dreyfuss, Cindy Williams, Harrison Ford, MacKenzie Phillips, and Suzanne Somers.

Peepers, I am in the same boat as you on nacho libre lol, that was the first movie I ever wanted to walk out on when I saw it. I like Jack Black usually but this was definitely an exception...

You fill out a personality test - then choose if you are in the mood for a movie along your tastes or not, and it gives suggestions about what to rent.

I rented that one because of Tommy too. It was a very odd movie.

Syriana was confusing (but maybe because I fell asleep).

Failure to Launch was predictable.

The Matador was good.

The World's Fastest Indian was good.

Munich had me on the edge of my seat.

The Man in the Iron Mask was ok.

An oldie, but one of my favorites is True Lies. I like that type of action/tongue in cheek film. Similar to an Indiana Jones attitude.
