    Watched Sin City before, very interesting movie.

    Thought it was really good though.

    I haven't thought of that name in a while :lol: I think I misspelled and mispronounced Simarillion for about a year when I was reading those books. It's right up there with triology.

    "I'm reading the the last book in the Lords of the Rings series it's called Simallarion. Have you read the original triology?" - me at 14...ouch :geek:

    Has anyone seen the new extended version of Sin City? Is it worth shelling out the extra dough for?

    One movie I reckon is really funny is the Naked Gun gun series with Leslie Nelson (and on Family Guy with Stewie and Osama)

    Of the ones mentioned already I loved Memento, Cinderella Man and like Polar Express heaps too ( my new Xmas eve movie with my kids).

    With 3 kids under 6, the only movies I see at the cionema are kids movies (which I love). I see my share on flights though, including Crash - which I really enjoyed.

    I hated Bad Santa. I just felt totally uncomfortable from start to finish.

    My movie taste is pretty mainstream. The funniest movie I've seen in the last few years is Anchorman. Watched it on a plane and woke up half a dozen people in the middle of the night with my laughing.

    Others I have liked - Million Dollar Baby, Manchurian Candidate and Minority Report.

    Seems like I've seen lots of kiddie movies lately....or maybe family movie is the term. Anyway, I just saw Lemony Snicket's and thought was really good. Does Jim Carey ever do any wrong? I liked the far-out-there story too (and the biting baby).

    Kami mentioned Snatch, which was a great one. Someone told me about a similar movie awhile back, but I can't remember what it is :hmm: Y'all got any guesses?

    I am not a huge fan on Jim Carrey, but he has made some very funny movies (Ace Ventura, Dumb and Dumber)

    Fun With Dick and Jane looks good. Bruce Almighty was really good.

    He's been in a whole lot of movies (some from the early 80's). So many that I haven't seen. I gotta catch up.

    City Of God = The grimiest movie you'll ever see. It's in my top 5 alltime, but came out in like 2000. It's had a huge buzz for about a year now. Rent it now.
