Has anyone seen any of the movies in the theaters lately? Any of them good? I don't like to go by the critics.

I still like going to the theater some times. Some movies are just better on the big screen. However, I suppose with the size of TV screens these days it is almost like being at the movies!

Just watched "The Inside Man" with Denzel Washington...an EXCELLENT movie! (PayPerView)

I'm hoping to see "The Black Dahlia" when it comes to my area, if it does. I've read the book this movie is based on, and I only hope the movie is as good as the book was.

i'm a netflix stay at home guy, been into silent films lately, german specifically. definitely watch metropolis, 1927, it really stands up well and, like all german films bewteen the wars, it is visually stunning.

it is, imo, a film that one does not have to be an afficianado to watch, can be appreciated by all.

The wife and I just saw Snakes on the Plane last night. It was pretty good. The lady next to us, screamed like a half dozen times. It was a enjoyable experience for me. First time in almost 30 years that I have been to a movie. LOL

I will not go see SOAP! Snakes scare the hell out of me, and I can just imagine some nut trying to make this a REALITY show for real.

shudder...shudder....shudder....

We watched In Her Shoes...it was good, if you like chick-flicks, and I do once in awhile.

garagejazz....I LOVE the old films that are shown on Turner Classic Movies. One of my favorites is The Ghost and Mrs. Muir.

The Grid Iron Gang is awesome! You find yourself rooting them on as if you are really at a football game!

I've seen "In Her Shoes" a few times..my sister and mother both love it. I don't get it, though. The situation between the two sisters is too f'd up for me to move past...and I don't understand how they can either. I've never been one to believe that family is the most important thing. IMPO, you have the right to choose friends, not family, so why should you have to settle with anything less than you'd expect from someone else? ...
On another note, I've always been a harsh critic on tv shows, games, and movies, in general. I'll look up some stuff I've watched w/ in the last year and see if anything stands out...

A few people recommended "Session 9" as the scariest movie they've ever seen. I watched it last night, and it's just not so.
It's a suspense movie, with absolutely nothing scary, and no gore.
I would recommend it as simply a good movie, with a surprise ending...which seems to be rare.
