I wanted to see what movie you have seen lately. It can either be on the computer, on DVD, VCR, or at the theater. The only thing that I ask, is that you do NOT give away the movie. If you want to convince someone else to see it, you dont want to tell them how it ended. I will go first.

Butterfly Effect(DVD)-It stars Ashton Kutcher(That's 70s Show and Punk'd), and Amy Smart. He is a college-aged person who relives his childhood. When he was younger, he would have seizures, blackout, and not know why. When he started having them, he would keep a journal of events for everyday. When he got older, he started reading them, and it brought him back in a way that no other film has accomplished before.

This is the kind of movie that you need to watch in one setting, because the story unfolds in a way that can be easily missed. The special effects are superb. It is rated R for a reason though. This is not the kind of movie that you would want a child to watch.

Passion of the Christ.........very powerful and moving, everyone should see it.

As said above though, very graphic. Not for kids.





Hey Jason, How are you?

Well, I'm not a big movie goer but I do love movies. Here's the latest few:

"Bad(der) Santa" - loved it! hilarious, but definitely not for kids!
"Lord of the Rings (Third epic) - I'm surprised I liked it, but it's a long one.
"Phone Booth" - loved it! A must see! (I can't wait to see "Cellular")
"Passion of the Christ" - not a big fan of this film.

Like I said, most of the ones I will see eventually are ones most have seen a year ago, lol. And since Grinler mentioned "Sixteen Candles", I love all John Hughes movies. I think I hold the record for the most viewed of "Breakfast Club".

Great Thread, Jason!!! Thanks!

:thumbsup: Hi! I pay out the nose for premium cable services, so I don't get out much :trumpet: . Anyway...recently I saw "The Outsider" with Naomi Watts and Tim Daly. I was so moved by this film. I highly recommend it. I never do pay-per-view, but they issued me a coupon for a free one--so, I chose "Big Fish", directed by Tim Burton. It was good. I tried to catch "Kill Bill 1", in order to be prepared for "Kill Bill 2", but kept missing it. It'll be around though. As far as the ones I've mentioned, I think you really have to be in the right mood. Happy viewing, nancy :flowers:

Well it looks like I have some catching up to do. I think I will start with The Passion of the Christ. I have been meaning to see it anyway.

Another movie that I seen recently was 50 First Dates. It is an excellant family movie.

Last samurai was amazing...not a huge fan of cruise, but the movie was excellent.

As for jacobs ladder, I figured it out perfectly and then confirmed it with someone else who is in the movie industry . Let me know if you want me give it a way..

Thanks for the fun thread Jason~

Ah, I am embarrassed to admit I haven't watched that many movies lately. Passion of the Christ? Haven't seen it yet but I want to, I don't know if I want the kids to see that one. I have seen Van Helsing. That was a good movie. I liked it. Saw the latest Harry Potter. All I can say about that is FANTASTIC. I loved it. Some very nice computer graphics in that movie. I am hoping to go see Cellular on Tuesday. That should be good.

Do not anticipate trouble, or worry about what may never happen. Keep in the sunlight.

Hide not your talents. They for use were made. What's a sundial in the shade?

I have seen all of the Harry Potter movies. First, at the theatre, then with the purchase from DVD. Although there are some very excellant special effects, I could not really get into them. My wife really enjoys them, as a 'requirement' when purchasing the movie, we watched them the day when we got them at the store.

Spider Man 2 was another recent movie that we have seen. I enjoyed this one more then the 1st, and the same goes to my wife. There was even a few parts that she teared up on. Before the movie was over, she mentioned to be that this will be a must buy when it comes out on video.

Ah, I am embarrassed to admit I haven't watched that many movies lately


Don't be embarrassed. If it wasnt for my computer, I probably would not watch many movies myself. It is one of my most common multi-tasking things. No wonder why it takes me weeks to finish a tutorial. :thumbsup:
