Shawshank is a great movie.
Revenge of the Sith
I'll post my thoughts in one of the other ROTS threads when I get a chance.

I saw Revenge of the Sith this afternoon. Awsome.
I can't believe there are still people who haven't seen Shawshank. Easily one of my top 3 favourite movies of all time.
Anyway, I saw Cinderella Man 2 nights ago. Good movie, classic fairy-tale.
2001: A Space Odyssey.
One Kubrick film after the other.
I liked Dr. Strangelove better than this, but this one was still enjoyable. The effects are amazing for being made in 1968. It's also one of those movies that doesn't tell you what exactly what is what, and I like that every once in a while. Makes for interesting conversations.
If you haven't seen this though, be warned that it might rub you the wrong way because it is a very slow movie with very little dialogue.
both strangelove and 2001 are two of my favoritte Kubrick films. However,I would say that my personal favoritte is A Clockwork Orange. I love the message it discussess,and see it as his best work. That being said it is 2001 is also a great film. especially with its limited dialogue. I always liked the fact that it has so little dialogue.
Just saw "Papparazzi". Nothing special, nice to see once and that's it.

I saw ROTS agian today. Went with my wife yesterday and a friend today. Even if you just have a small interest in the movie, it is one you have to see at least once for the Sp. Effects. Especially the opening battle sequence.
Sleepless in Seattle....man I love this movie
Don't ask Marvin Harrison what he did during the bye week. "Batman never told where the Bat Cave is," he explained.
It was something. Started out kind of odd and then got downright bizarre. But no matter how bizarre it got, they kept going through the motions.
I got some chuckles out of it. Some of it made me scratch my head.
It put my wife to sleep pretty quickly.......
And those people have to be starving. They never get to eat and they keep trudging down the road to nowhere......
Lady Snowblood & Lady Snowblood: Love Song Of Vengeance
"Almost Famous," again. It's ridiculous how many times I've seen that movie.
I just saw "Crash" tonight in the theaters.
I knew the reviews were good and I had heard it was an excellent movie, but I must admit I did not expect it to be that good.
I had heard it was about race relations in LA. I thought well how entertaining could that be.
The movie pulls you in a within 20 minutes and you really care about the characters and there are a lot of characters in this movie. There were about 4 or 5 scenes that I'll never forget. Great writing, great acting, great directing. So many excellent performances.
One of the best things I can ever say about a movie is I did not want it to end, I wanted to know what happened next to the characters. It is rare indeed when I feel like that
I cannot recommend it enough.
Watched Collateral with Tom Cruise and Jamie Foxx.
Thought it was good.
I REALLY want to see "crash", but I can't seem to make time to go to the theatre. It looks like my kind of movie.
BTW, Just got done with Garden State. I love a restrained movie. Braniff could have gone over the top a dozen times, but his restraint and faith that the audience will "get it" without spelling everything out for them was comforting. Natalie Portman was her usual wonderful, strong, yet wounded, yet clever, yet knowing self. I can't imagine the movie without her. I think it's a wonderful movie that makes you think about the self generated inertia in one's life. Not a "wow" movie, but one that stays with you and is ultimately pretty uplifting and satisfying in a non-cliche way.
Manchurain Candidate (2004) the original is better but the new one isn't that bad.
I entirely agree; both movies have great casts, but the Frankenheimer version is a exetremly creepy, what with the symbol is of the queen of spades, and the mother. In the new one the mother thing is there, but it it entirley redone to fit todays political landscape, and while that is cool, it isn't as unique as the first one.
