    Unfortunately, my wife is not much of a movie fan, so I generally end up watching them without her the first time then I try to persuade her to watch any that come along that I feel she might enjoy. Accuracy with this is important because if she sits through one that she doesn't like, it might be months before I can talk her into watching another one. She says that she has trouble sitting still for that long, yet, she sits for many hours watching television shows that she's seen over and over again, such as the NCIS repeat marathons that have been coming on forever.

    My guess is that she has a thing for Mark Harmon, or one of his detectives!

    After watching the following trailer and featurette, I'm thinking The Avengers that is about to open in May is looking pretty good:

    The Avengers Trailer (No. 2) - IMDb

    I've heard that it's already doing really well at the box offices in Europe, too!

    I bought Slow Burn and realized that I had seen it many, many, years ago but I only

    Slow Burn is indeed similar to the Usual Suspects in that the " plot " twists and turns to the very end.
    No one is going to get bored watching it!!

    Finally got around to seeing Watchmen for the first time tonight:

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0409459/

    It's not a great movie, but pretty good if you like movies about comic book characters, and there are some good special effects. The version I watched was 3 hours and 6 minutes long, but it didn't feel that long. Oh, and there's some good rock music in it, too.

    Another vote for the Avengers, went to watch it last weekend, and I don't remember the last time I saw such a long line to buy a ticket. I liked it very much. Is the basic good guys vs bad guys, lots of action, some very funny lines, the kind of movie that makes you want to cheer at the end. I think the director Joss Whedon did a very good job.

    Yeah, there is talk that it might become the largest opening ever for a movie, thereby unseating the current champion, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2. It finally opened in the USA last night, so it shouldn't be long before the attendance count is tallied. I've not yet decided if and when I'll be going to see it since the closest really good theater to me is a 90 mile round trip.

    Hope it all plays out well for any of you that go see it, though!

    We just went and saw "The Pirates! Band of Misfits" in 3D last night - an animation film from our friends at Aardman who have brought us such favorites as "Wallace & Gromit", "Chicken Run", and such. Definitely fun!

    Watched one from a few years back called The New World:

    IMDb - The New World (2005)

    Beautiful cinematography, good music, good costumes, and very good cast.

    This movie is good, but certainly not a movie for everyone. It's probably too artistic for some viewers, so I'd definitely recommend a rental or borrow before a blind buy.

    I watched Star Wars Episode 4 A new hope yesterday because it was Star Wars day.

    May the Fourth.
    What do we want?
    Time machines!

    When do we want 'em?
    Doesn't really matter does it!?

    I do like the new movies.
    But Star Wars magic will always belong to the original series.
