TOY STORY 3
Awesome movie, IMO it easily trumps this first 2 films,
a great family movie ( 4 kids here )
it gets a little dark towards the end, but that's all part of building the tension I suppose.
5 stars for this one, definitely won't be disappointed.

Both my kids (4 and 3) cried and got scared when we saw it at the drive in. They much prefer TS1&2

I've heard lots of my friends cried when they saw it (most of them are teenagers/young adults)! I haven't actually seen it yet, only heard good things though, I'll have to see it sometime soon.

The Social Network
Shows the development of facebook.
Really great film with some outstanding writing (IMO).
If you don't know much about Facebook than it might not be interesting to you (like my Dad, he hated it).

Jackass 3D
What can I say? If you're a fan of anything Jackass related, you need to see it.
It was hilarious. Probably my least favourite out of the 3 movies.

The Social Network
Brilliant. I loved it. Great story and progression.
If you have any interest in IT and the internet, go see it.

City Island
Andy Garcia, Julianna Margulies and others. Slice of life comedy/drama, set in a little-known part of the Bronx.
Full of yearning, gentle laughs and comic set pieces. No graphic violence or sex. I give it three and a half stars. Margaret?

Is it acceptable to mention old movies? I'm not really in the loop with what's playing at cinemas presently.

Million Dollar Baby
This was on tele the other night, amazing movie, one of my all time favourites. The cinematography is outstanding and the story itself is brilliant, one of the reasons I love it so much is you develop real feelings for the characters as you watch their journey through life. Highly recommended, even if you have no interest at all in boxing (like me).

Yes any movie is fine, I only watch movies as they come out on DVD so I'm definitely out of the Cinema loop.
I've heard a few good reviews about Million Dollar Baby, will have to check it out, thanks

A couple of music related movies I'll prob watch over Easter:
High Fidelity - Hilarious, explores the mind of a narcissistic record store owner and the amusing tragedy that is his life. 5 Stars.
Flash Gordon - brilliant soundtrack by Queen. Sci-fi/ Action/ accidental Comedy... so bad it's good. 3.5 stars
Forrest Gump - great soundtrack. 4 stars
Other: Office Space - Think Dilbert cartoon as a movie. Printer scene priceless. 4.5 stars

Anyone recommend something else music related?

Movies? How many movies do I get to see?

My favourite movie I saw in recent times is "The Blind Side"... Sandra Bullock was great in this... first movie I've seen that's not a kid's movie that wasn't full of cursing and gratuitous violence.

Last movie I saw in a theatre prior to this one was "Valkyrie"... very decent flick...a movie where I could actually tolerate Tom Cruise...now that's AMAZING!... from a historical perspective, fascinating.

a great music-oriented film from the 80's (not for the film, for the music) was "Streets of Fire". Probably hard to find, but the music was top notch.

Found a directors cut edition of Kingdom of Heaven.

5/5!
