I have to see that movie, I just never got around to it.

I share a name with the main chracter.

Loved Hot Fuzz. That will be going in my DVD collection.

Last movie I saw in a theatre was Pirates 3. This too will be a DVD to get.

Last movie I rented was Chasing Amy. Love the Kevin Smith movies.

Ratatouille: Was hilarious.

Transformers: If all you want from the movie is action and pretty girls, you're golden. If you're hoping for much of a plot or anything resembling humor, might want to tone down those expectations.

Harry Potter and The Order of The Pheonix.

Excellent. Follows the book rather well.

A Beautiful Mind. F-in' incredible.

Before that, Pan's Labyrinth. Also f-in' incredible.

I wasn't terribly impressed with either of those when I saw them in the theatre. Both were interesting and uniqe, but neither really drew me into the story and made it enjoyable.

I saw HP5 tonight, and I enjoyed it alot, but I'm sad by how much they have to squish the last couple books because they are so f'n long. They did a better job with that in this movie, kinda making it rapidfire and simplifying alot of plots. Sadly tho, they're definately never going to get as close to book quality as they did with the first 2.

The Shawshank Redemption on DVD last night. Tour de force performances by Morgan Freeman and Tim Robbins and an ending that still brings a tear to my eye no matter how many times I watch it.
The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who in the name of charity and goodwill shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know my name is the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon thee.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.

Was okay. Didn't change my life but I didn't get bored or annoyed so I'd say about 3/5
