I thought this might be a fun ongoing thread. You get to see what others are watching and may find a new movie for your collection. New, old, color, B&W, foreign, concert or whatever...its all good.

I'll start with an excellent animated flick with rich detail and a good soundtrack: Tim Burton's Nine

Ok, I'm in. My wife and I play a game we call pick three. She picks three movies and of those I pick the one that we will watch. The three that she picked were The Avengers, Inglurious Basterds, and The Dark Knight Rises. I chose The Dark Knight Rises. :)

I mostly played MW3, then started watching "Here comes the Boom." Didn't finish it since I had to work today, plan on it tonight though.

Tim Burton's nine is a fun movie especially on blu-ray. I watched Tron 3D and found it to be a visual and auditory blast.

Watched "Water for Elephants". Hal Holbrook would have stolen the show were it not for his limited parts at the beginning and end. Good cinematography, casting, and acting but there were some weak points to the plot (too much like the "good" guy stealing the "bad" guys wife and the bad guy wasn't bad enough - he even had a good side at times), and the ending was just a bit flat, but ok movie.

Watched Perks of Being a Wallflower last night. Good movie. Some classic scenes. Love Emma Watson dancing to Come On Eileen. Takes me back in time as I used to live in Pittsburgh. My teenage girls love the book and the movie.

I watched 'Contact' directed by Robert Zemeckis. I love that film. Still stands today as a great example of 'invisible' special effects. Also one of the best intros to a movie ever. Stonking audio.

Red Planet. Came out in 2000. Starring Val Kilmer. It was ok... I'm trying to figure out if it was real good or not. My Wife liked it. It's a SciFi movie about Mars...

Oooooh, I did not realize this was out. Wait, is this still in theaters?

Purchased the movie on my Apple TV and watched in my HT. Figured a purchase would be worth it, since we'll watch the movie numerous times. I don't believe the Blu-Ray/DVD will be available until this Tuesday. Definitely check it out.

Tonight my grandson (10) picked John Carter. The movie tanked at the box office but I found it entertaining. Disney gambled on two unknown actors for the lead roles. I think the movie would have done a lot better with a leading man movie goers knew. Still a fun space tale.

We watched that two weeks ago. Entertaining certainly. My Wife is a huge SciFi reader, and knew this character from Her past reading. She watched it twice.

We enjoy movies without 'Stars' cast in them. Sometimes they are a flop, other times they are done wonderfully.

He sure could jump! :)

Just watched Skyfall and I must say what a great movie. This is one of those movies that makes the projection home theater all worth it. Fantastic cinema, awesome soundtrack and a true theater experience.
