Movies that Don't Suck....

I used to be a real movie buff. There weren't too many movies that I hadn't seen..even the very off the wall independent type ones. There are some movies that didn't get great reviews or didn't do well at the box office, but I LOVE to watch them. They don't suck. At least in my opinion.....as much as that counts. My husband doesn't share the same taste in movies that I do, so my viewing has dropped considerably since we got married....plus it's so hard to get to the movies when you have two toddlers and not a real good babysitter. AND when we do get a chance to go out, we really don't feel like sitting in the theater for two hours. We'd rather go somewhere where we can talk with each other and hang out together more because we seldom get to do that anmore.

So, I'm not up to date on my new movies. I have to wait for them to come out on one of the movie channels or on DVD so I can see them. I watched Casino Royale the other night. I was very impressed. It was like watching an old school Bond movie again. None of the political correctness bullshit that ruined the last few. Daniel Craig is an awesome James Bond. I have to admit I was skeptical about the movie. I was so disappointed with the "Remington Steele" set of Bond movies.. I watched the first one and said nope, not buying it.... After watching Casino Royale, I'm back on the Bond bandwagon.

Anyone out there have any suggestions for newer movies that don't suck? I like action, horror, suspense, sci-fi, fantasy, I'll even watch a good drama. I just have to be in the mood for a drama...sometimes I just don't feel like crying.

I'm really bad about newer movies. I never go to theaters and generally only watch DVDs when I get them from Netflix. I'm so disconnected from modern media. LOL

Yeah Ian, I am with you there. Netflix is my entertainment nexus. I really liked "Stranger Than Fiction". I would also suggest the following: "Eastern Promises" - Viggo Mortenson and Naomi Watts (Russian Mob), "Children of Men" Clive Owen - I just like Clive Owen, "Beowolf" - just because of the sweet animation alone. I am sure if I think of anymore I will let you know, and why don't you answer your phone sometime!!! :P

I love Daniel Craig as the new Bond! He's soo mmmmm....
The Illusionist was a pretty good flick. Little Miss Sunshine is great! I loved the grandpa..totally inappropriate role model. The Devil Wears Prada was pretty good even though its predictable but Meryl Streep is soo good in her role. Haven't seen anything new lately myself..too busy, too tired. I have more to list, however I'm having some serious memory recall problems this week. And there is always Star Wars! ;) love you!
