    Charlies Wilson's War was a good movie as was mentioned earlier - I quite enjoyed it....laughed a bunch of times (more at the funny absurdity then at scripted jokes).

    b_illin would recommend.

    Milk - 5 out of 5...

    Fucking awesome. Inspiring. I'm now officially a Sean Penn fan.
    I'm sorry that you interpreted my incredibly funny joke as horribly offensive.

    I saw this and it was a decent movie but i actually enjoyed the history channel documentary about this ALOT more. Obviously its different but it was really good. Only saw it cause someone i know thought they were ordering the movie from Netflix and it turned out to be the documentary haha.

    Step Brothers had me rolling. I love Will Ferrel, he's such a goober.

    Marley and Me was a surprisingly cute little flick if you wanna take your gf/wifey out to a movie.

    I'm intrigued, if Mickey Rourke can make a comeback this is the role.

    YouTube - 'The Wrestler' Movie Trailer
    Saw that movie in September at the Toronto International Film Festival and it was easily the best I saw there(well, maybe not easily, "Slumdog Millionaire" was fucking incredible too and will probably garner a "Best Picture" nomination)

    Anywhoo, ya, The Wrestler is absolutely amazing, and Mickey Rourke is not only going to be nominated for Best Actor, right now he's the HANDS DOWN favourite to win it.

    His performance is on par with Daniel Day Lewis in There Will Be Blood last year. Rourke owns the screen for the entire movie.

    I don't know about "hands down"...Sean Penn was pretty fucking sick in Milk. I did prefer Rourke though just don't think Penn should be simply pushed aside.

    Anyways yeah the Wrestler was an amazing movie, that and Slumdog are probably my 2 favs so far this year. Also looking forward to Frost/Nixon

    I don't go out to watch movies much but the fiancee and I got free tickets. We're debating on what to go and see, it seems theres a lot of real good movies out right now. Its between 7 pounds, valkyrie, the curious case of benjamin button, and doubt. Anybody see any of these? what do you recommend? I think we're leaning towards benjamin button....

    I hear ben button is really good....o matter who you are, you will cry.

    I heard 7 lbs is shite and same with Valkyrie (only person said that though about Valk)...no idea about doubt.

    I want to see Grand Torino....it looks AWESOME

    I've heard bad things about Benjamin Button and Seven Pounds, probably going to end up seeing Valkyrie sometime this weekend. I'm surprised everyone is so excited about The Wrestler, the trailer looked like absolute trash.

    Seen The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button and it was well worth the three hours. Yes I said three and that's how long it is. So if you're not the type to sit in one spot, have ADD or drink the big gulps then you might have a problem. Otherwise this was an excellent movie and I highly recommend it. It's one of those films that anyone can relate to and it answers some of life's questions so to speak. Will get you thinking as well as entertain you.

    I saw the movie "Doubt" the other day. Although its about a possible priest/child molestation case, it was actually really good! I know it might sound kinda dumb, and boring, but it was actually really well done!

    On Pete's Rating I'd have to give it: .75 / 4 haha

    Edit : I hat8music I guess this answers your question. Yes it was a pretty kickass movie. If you are looking for action there is obviously not going to be much in this film haha, but it did have a couple funny parts, and all in all I thought it was really good! I am normally a movie critic but this one was really well done!

    In The Shadow Of The Moon

    Rating: 4 1/2 out of 5

    A documentary.. Great stuff, especially if you're a space buff. A very candid look at the Apollo astronauts. Created by Ron Howard, from Apollo 13 fame (and 100 other things).
    I'm sorry that you interpreted my incredibly funny joke as horribly offensive.

    My top 10 films list, and as someone who watches way more movies than I ever should yearly it should carry at least some weight :

    10 - Iron Man

    What can you say? Just an amazing popcorn movie with some smart acting and effects. God bless Jon Favreau.

    9 - Man On Wire

    Documentary about high wire artist Phillipe Petit who in 1974 suspended a cable between the Twin Towers and did a high wire act over it. The best documentary I've ever seen. Ever.

    8 - Martyrs

    French EXTREME horror film, absolutely shocking to the point of no return. The movie makes Saw, Hostel and whatever look like a Disney movie. Absolutely startling on a level that I can't even describe. It is however, a brilliantly topical horror film that has a resounding message that you can't help but feel when you leave the theater. It was all about enduring suffering and being better for it...it just used the most absolutely shocking and graphic way to showcase that moral...which made it all the more powerful. Brilliant, but absolutely not for the faint of heart.

    7 - Curious Case of Benjamin Button

    I could probably have done with it being slightly shorter, and yet as I had this discussion with a friend we couldn't think of where the movie could have been shortened. It's very long, and there was a point where I thought the movie was dragging too much. With that said, the overall tale is brilliant. Brilliant script by one of the best screenwriters in Hollywood Eric Roth(Forrest Gump, Ali, Munich, The Good Shepherd)

    6 - Milk

    Sean Penn gives one of the best acting performances this year. I already said I think Mickey Rourke is heads and shoulders the best and I stand by that...but he was certainly good also. The story was amazing too, I wasn't familiar at all with the story so I was watching something I really had no knowledge of which I suppose made it all the more compelling. Gus Van Sant is brilliant, and directed one of my favourite movies no one ever saw "Elephant", which was a similar work in that it was a societal statement after the wave of school shootings hit the USA. Milk, similarily great.

    5 - The Wrestler

    Mickey Rourke. Nothing else really needs to be said, for anyone whose seen it, it's a one man show. Sure, Darren Aronofsky made does a great job with it as he usually does with all his other films(Pi, Requiem for a Dream, The Fountain). But this is basically all about Mickey Rourke being fucking fantastic and drawing off his own life experiences to tell his story through this character. Unbeleivable performance.

    4 - Slumdog Millionaire

    I love it to death. Saw it at TIFF along with alot of these movies, and it was absolutely great. Danny Boyle is quickly becoming a star with a few amazing movies under his belt now(Trainspotting, Sunshine, and this).

    3 - The Dark Knight

    What can you say about a movie that everyone in the world has seen? Nothing. You've seen it. You saw Ledger's performance. You hopefully also noticed how great alot of the supporting cast was, specifically Aaron Eckhart as Harvey Dent, and Gary Oldman as Commisioner Gordon.

    2 - Wall-E

    Anyone who doesn't agree doesn't know movies. Wall-E was fucking fantastic. Just absolutely fucking fantastic. I loved every minute of it.

    And my number 1, which quite possibly no one here has seen, and if you have I can't imagine you disagreeing :

    1 - Låt Den Rätte Komma In(Let The Right One In)

    An absolute masterpeice from Sweden. In the absolute ages of movies, since the original Dracula and beyond, there is no movie about Vampires that has ever been this good. To make me say that, to make me put it past every vampire film ever made, I can't even imagine a film doing that, but this did. I can tell you this...if you read informed internet best of 2008 lists, this appears on alot of them, and is usually #1 or #2 or #3, it's absolutely mind boggling how much I loved this movie. It's won 11 Best Film at different Film Festivals around the world. It won't get a sniff at the Oscars which is a goddamn shame especially considering it should hands down win Best Foreign Language Film. It stars two 12 year old kids who develop a relationship, and the girl is a vampire. It's startlingly beautiful, scary without being gory(although there are some shocking scenes). Just a perfectly paced, perfectly done movie. Seek it out, it's so worth it. Lina Leandersson also delivers the best female performance of the year as the girl.

    Great list Cayuga! I definitly have to see let the right one in, its been on pretty much all top 10 lists ive seen.

    The ONE thing I didnt like about your post is when you talk about Danny Boyle and mention Sunshine as a good movie.....I fucking hated that movie with a passion.....

    Aside from that good list lol

    I am shocked Wall-E is that high up on the list. I guess I didn't get it.

    Best documentary ever is quite the statement. Power of Nightmares takes the cake for me in that respect.

    Just watched this the other day and I was really surprised. I really enjoyed it and believe it's a sleeper. Wasn't too fond of the dance number at the end and thought it was rather obscure, but it didn't shake the fact that it was a solid movie.

    I don't know if this is true but I heard somewhere that all Bollywood movies end with a dance number like the one in Slumdog...no matter how serious the movie may be.

    Also I wouldn't call it a sleeper, there's HUGE hype around it
