For Your Viewing Pleasure
The forecast calls for movies and plenty of them. Fortunately, there's new blood at the theaters, including Wallace and Gromit, the claymation flick parents and kids can actually both enjoy that's also been getting great reviews. If you're not familiar, rent A Grand Day Out and you'll see what the fuss is about. If you've seen/rented/on demanded anything good lately, give us all some inspiration.

The Constant Gardener is a fantastic movie: a hybrid between art-house and a thriller. It's all about conditions of the poor in Africa -- an eye-opener -- and has a wonderful surprise ending. See it.

While it isn't as good as the stage play IMHO, Proof is definitely worth seeing. I'm not a big Paltrow fan myself but she does a good job and Jake Gyllenhall (?) is better than I've ever seen him before. AND, if you haven't seen "Crash", go ahead and rent it -- it's my favorite movie (so far) of 2005!

I must be the only person alive who thought didn't like "Constant Gardener".
I thought it was slow (kept waiting for something to happen) and felt the film tried to be too earnest & preachy.
It also reminded me in some parts, of a music video.
Best movie I've seen in awhile- Junebug.
Also took the teen to 'In Her Shoes'. Predictable, but entertaining and some great ensemble acting.

Saw Crash last night. Deeply disturbing--great acting all around.

I took the family to see the "Greatest Game Ever Played" and we all loved it. There was something for us all to enjoy, great family film. It made me want to get out there and work on my back swing.

I've seen quite a few great movies lately: A History Of Violence, Thumbsucker, Wallace And Gromit, Serenity, and Lord Of War all of which were excellent (especially the first three). I haven't rented any good new movies in awhile but a few cool rental choices for Halloween are Halloween (obviously), Dawn Of The Dead (1978), The Exorcist, The Shinning, Night Of The Living Dead, Creepshow, and Shaun Of The Dead.
