What's the last movie you rented or bought? Was it worth it? I thought we could share. You know; tell alittle about the movie. I am having a hard time finding a movie to watch.

I just got done watching 'Pirates Of The Caribbeans... At Worlds End'. The third one. It was better to me, than the other two. 3 hours long. With my job, it took me three days to watch it. Finally finished it. Wonder if there is going to be a 4?

Anything with Danny Kaye is great. I've seen it before. On one show I saw that was talking about it they were talking about the fencing scene. It was supposed to be between Danny Kaye and Basel Rathbone but Danny and his fencing teacher got so fast at it that Rathbone couldn't keep up so they ended up filming it with Kaye and the fencing instructor.

I'm not a big movie person but found myself at the movies twice this week! So when these movies come out on dvd, I recommend them.

National Treasure 2

Kite Runner (read the book..movie was good...not as good as the book but still good!)

We just watched "Facing the Giants" last night and really enjoyed it.
It was very inspirational.

I bought "Empire Records" about a week ago. It's a cult classic! I love it! Before that I bought Memento.

The next movies I'm buying are "Gone Baby Gone" and "The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford"

Hi Sherrie, :wave:

I highly recommend The Last Sin Eater.

It was a book written by Christian fiction author, Francine Rivers. It was made into a movie and directed by Michael Landon, Jr. It came out in theaters for only one weekend last March and I missed it. I had to wait until May, when it came out on dvd. I own the movie, kayte owns the movie, and her daughter mosey owns it as well. We all LOVE it and have watched it over and over. In fact, it may be time to watch it again. :D

It is very moving. I don't want to say a lot about it because you just need to see it! :) I don't think you'd be disappointed. ;)

One of the Christmas presents I got was a collection of 250 old movies, and I've been having a blast watching them!! I've only watched 8 since I got them, but part of the fun is looking for what would be good. (It will be a long time before I can say I've seen everything in the house!)

The best one out of the group so far has been a Danny Kaye movie, The Inspector General. Not as good as The Court Jester, but very entertaining.

I am pretty sure that Pirates is a trilogy, so there won't be any more made. That was it.

I enjoyed it; but the first one is still the best I think.

The last movie on DVD we saw was The March of the Penguins...... it was a gift and we loved it! :pp If you love animals, I can recommend it!
We also just watched season 9 of Jerry Seinfeld...... very nice too!
But my favourite movie still is Clipping Adam..... nothing special effects or actors (well besides Kevin something who played Hercules has a role in it) but the most beautiful movie I have ever seen, simple, to the point but the one I always want to watch when I don't feel good as it gives me so much courage, even though I know constantly what will happen, as we have seen it at least 5 or 6 times by now (maybe even more)......
We also have the British tv-series of the Chronicles of Narnia, which I love too...... and finally we recently saw the DVD from Monthy Python's search of the Holy Grail again...... very funny indeed!

We love DVD's as we don't have a tv anymore (threw it out more than a year ago)...... :)

Love you,

Michael Landon Jr. is a great director. The last movie that I bought was Donovan's Reef with John Wayne. Love that movie. The movie that I bought before that one is "Wild Hogs" with Tim Allen, and John Travolta. It's a good movie. There is a scene or 2 that I could do without, but other than that it will keep you laughing.:rofl:

Made a rare trip to the theatre a week or two ago and saw "I am Legend" with Will Smith. Great movie, but if you have a problem with horror or very suspenseful movies you might have a problem with this one.

My wife does and she wasn't expecting a movie quite like this. Still, she said it was good, but was jittery afterward!

Would like to get out and see Mr Wilson's War and The Bucket List. Anyone seen those?

National Treasure 2 was good. I was very surprised cause the first one left me cold. (which begs the question, why did I spend 10 bucks each for me and my fiance to watch the second one when we didn't like the first) I saw Juno. It was pretty good, but I'm not sure why everyone is praising it like it's the greatest comedy of the last 10 years. It was funny. It takes a semi anti-abortion stance, but lots of the other stuff in the movie is a little "worldly."

We have "We Are Marshall," "3:10 to Yuma" and "Transformers" at home to watch from Netflix. The last movie we watched on DVD was "The Bourne Ultimatum" -- we really enjoyed it!

The last movie we saw in the theater was "Alvin and the Chipmunks." Surprisingly, we laughed out loud during the movie and fully enjoyed it!

Last movie I watched was Dream Girls (I'm behind on the times. lol). I didn't even sit through it I was so bored with it. Just wasn't impressed with it for some reason.

Before that I watched Sense & Sensibility, which I bought for my sister for Christmas. If you like the period movies like Pride & Prejudice you'd probably enjoy Sense & Sensibility. :) Watched Pirates 3 on Christmas day and hated the ending. I'm not a big fan of any of those movies, though. Just not my taste. :)

The last movie I watched was The Second Chance (2006). It was pretty good and thought provoking although it seemed more "low-budget" than other movies.

Another movie that I like is Secondhand Lions. That one is funny even when it's not trying to be. They did a great job with the characters.

We watched that a while ago and I agree, I wasn't impressed. The only part I liked was when Beyonce sang "You Should Have Listened".

I saw Flyboys the other day; I wasn't expecting to like it, but dh finally convinced me to watch it and it was really good. We picked up a dvd of 20 of Alfred Hitchcock's older movies at Wal-Mart for $5, and have been enjoying those...there are even a couple of silent movies from the '20s. Oh, and we watched Amazing Grace recently - that one was good, too.

We saw the 3rd Pirates quite recently, but I didn't like it very much. It seems they started taking the whole thing way too seriously when the first was just more fun and whimsical. Also, since I hadn't seen the second one wince it was in theatres, both my wife and I were looking at each trying to remember what exactly was going on.

The last movie we saw was Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (got the trilogy for Christmas).

Kicking And Screaming

Hi,

I watched 3:10 to Yuma, it didn't ring true to me. I didn't believe in the character (R. C.) ending up like that (thought that someone like that would never do what he did).

I am a John Wayne and Clint Eastwood fan and this movie just didn't seem to click like those.

For a real old one with a meessage try The Angel and the Badman.

I saw this one last summer; but then purchased the original version with Glenn Ford in the Russell Crowe role. If you like really good westerns of the 50's it's a winner. And the B/W works. The ending is a bit different and worth comparing versions. Acting is just as good if not better. Story line the same.

We watched and really enjoyed the DVD of "Gracie" the other night. Set in 1978 it is the story of a girl who wants to play on an all boys' soccer team and is coached by her own father before the try-outs.

It is loosely based on the story of the Shue family. Elizabeth Shue (plays the mother in the story) and her brother plays the JV coach. Remember it was 1978 when girl's didn't hardly get to play varsity soccer and not with the boys ever. Great movie especially for soccer fans. Also tells much about family relationships and love.

We then decided to watch another movie... Atonement. Not as good as I thought it would be, although it was worth it I guess. The ending leaves you feeling pretty unsatisfied, but I digress.

$34 at the movies for us tonight... Both movies were above average, but PS was the better of the two.

Yes, Atonement, was well done, a real tragic ending, which leaves you ?????? about what might have been 'if only'-----?

If you're talking about Gerard Butler, he also played in 300 as King Lyonidas. Not quite sure he played in Phantom of the Opera, but I think he did.

Some other good ones are I Am Legend, National Treasure (the first one), and Eastern Promises (violent, but good).

Eastern Promises was rough, hence the word "violent" in parentheses. The sauna scene was . . . umm . . . interesting. It would have been better had they kept the towel on. Other than that, I thought it was well done too.

Beowulf was very good too. It stayed pretty well aligned with the original legend.

Tyler Perry movies are hilarious, as well as possessing a good message! I would recommend any of his movies to anybody who was looking for a good laugh.

Another good movie would be Becoming Jane. It was really well done I thought. And, on that note, the new Pride and Prejudice was good too.

Fracture, with Anthony Hopkins, was well done too. It made you think. Just about anything with Anthony Hopkins in it, in my opinion, is good though. He's a great actor. Zodiac was good, but the ending was so-so.

Most movies have the language but does that mean I should or shouldnt rent or buy it? I have the old Walking Tall movies with Buford Pusser from the
70s. I love those movies but there are short nudity scenes and where he was breaking up the prositutions houses. Just like to hear some opinions.

I'm pretty open with movies and music, though there are some things that I'm just not comfortable with. A lot of times I'll look at what the artist's/director's personal views are. Bad language doesn't bother me, depending on how it's used. Nudity doesn't bother me, as long as it's integral to the story line.

My personal view is that God blessed these artists with the ability to create.

My taste in movies is so crazy I could never begin to give recommendations. We did watch the Polar Express for the first time the other night and I have to say that I was not impressed with the story line. The animation was ground breaking, but the story was meh.

I watched Rambo IV this weekend. Brutally violent. And I mean BRUTALLY. I read interviews with Sly and he said he wanted to make sure everyone got a taste of the kind of violence going on in Burmah everyday. But some of the scenes when Rambo was killing badguys were so over the top, I just can't say it was necessary. I mean, there was a sniper using a 50 caliber rifle and doing head shots. Anybody got any idea what a 50 caliber shell does to a head?

Really? It disappointed me. I just couldn't get into it. This summer is going to rock though. Indy 4, Narnia, Dark Knight, Iron Man, Incredible Hulk and Wall-E (new Pixar movie). It's gonna be sweet.

Last movie I saw; Juno; loved it.

Walk Hard was good.
Balls Of Fury was meh.
Beowolf in 3D was AMAZING [even tough beowolf reminds me of hulk hogan in some scenes]

Last movie I rented:

DeathProof; it was ok; hard to follow; but again; it was that kind of movie on purpose.

Last movie on demand:

High Tension: Storyline was a little meh; and I would of enjoyed it more if it was in all french with subtitles.

Please upon recomending movies, please remember to state whether it is clean or not. I love movies too. before my husband gotr saved 2 years ago I saw almost every one that came out. I agree with above posters. Some of these recommended movies have sex scenes, and foul lang and serious violence. It isn't just a personal preference, It is blantlently stated in God's word to live in Holiness and nudity even in its artistic movie form...otherwise known as Porn, isn't in the least Holy....and if bad languarge doesn't affect you???? Why not.

I wanted to see sin eater but wasn't sure if it would disappoint me as I loved the book.
I loved the notebook but was disappointed in the sex scene-wasn't needed.
the pirate movies were funny, but the 2nd I couldn't stand.
I loved the national treasure movies. They were good and entertaining.

Last two movies I saw were Cloverfield and Strange Wilderness. I wouldn't recommend either if you don't feel comfortable with crude language, occasional scenes of nudity, etc.
