I saw the Passion of Christ in theatures 2 times and once on DVD.
It is such a touching movie of what God did for us. But they didnt even show half of what beating he really got. It says in the Bible he was unreconizable.

I saw all of the LOTR's movies and wow action pacted and even though there long didnt get boring. The same guy who made those made the new King kong movie which I heard was good cant wait for it to come on dvd...

Saw the last star wars movie in theatures this past may and have saw 2 other ones. I want to get the remastered box set as I love sci-fi. Stargate is one of my favorite shows.

Day After Tomorrow

Armageddon

I have saw both of these both good movies.

I like action and suspense type. I like it combined with drama like stuff to not just all beating up the bad guys. I like a store behind it.

Like Radio. It was filmed right near me. Very good movie!

I am not much for horror stories. Mainly because they are full of trash. Nudity,blood,sex contentent and way to much language.

Thanks for the movies I will check some of them out.

:thumbsup: I like --> The Good, Bad, and the Ugly'..The complete 2 dvd edition. Although, the dubbing of Clint Eastwood, and Eli Wallich was a little dated, still was a good movie.

Also, I have a VHS tape called Turbulence. About a nut on a jet at christmas time. I believe Liotta starred in it. I have many more, especially the Star Trek movie series. Have a great day everyone Bye for now. :flowers:

Hey thanks boopme for the nod towards my blog.
Just like to mention that for everyones convenience, I have re-worked my movie list, so that all
movies are linked to their official site. Or I when was not able to find such, I linked to the
movies info. from IMDb (Internet Movie Database)
And let me tell you that was a lot of work. :thumbsup:
But I feel it was worth it. :flowers:

BTW I will be updating it from time to time.
These titles will be added soon:
The Passion of the Christ
A Beautiful Mind
Donnie Darko
How I forgot about these I'll never know. :trumpet:
