    Dressed to Kill (1980) - http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0080661/

    I got hold of the new Unrated Blu-ray release of this. The transfer to HD is fantastic and really nice. If thrillers are your cup of tea, highly recommended. :cool:

    Saw Real Steel with DS last night. What fun! Cliched plot. Predictable ending. Unimaginative script. And much, much fun for me at least. Bashing, crashing and fun. And I do so enjoy Hugh Jackman. And the kid is cute, too.

    "Kill the Irishman" - quite good but a bit bloody.

    can't remember the name...it was from netflix with Meryl Streep...called something like "music from the heart"...about a violin program in east harlem and the remarkable teacher who saved it for her students with the help of some very high profile musicians...very inspiring

    "Basic" with John Travolta. Lots of twists and turns in the plot.

    Saw The Godfather for the first time the other night. I don't get what the big deal is with this movie. *yawn*

    I never made it half way past part 2... Not my cup of tea either.

    Saw In Time the other day. Loved it.
  10. The last movie I saw in theater was Midnight in Paris with Owen Wilson and Rachel McAdams. Nice romance comedy and I like the time-warp/fantasy aspect of it.

    Something Borrowed - not cute, annoying, turned it off

    I watched another, but can't think of the name.

    Watched Black Swan again which was more difficult to get through without wine.

    "Bad Teacher". Just kidding - it was probably the second worst movie I've ever seen. Written by middle school guys for middle school guys. Can't believe Cameron Diaz is that desperate for work.

    Although there was *one* scene that was... intriguing...

    "Contagion". Basically a remake of "The Andromeda Strain" but several places around here used for exterior shots - look for the yellow bakery sign! I'm also told some coworkers were extras in the lab scenes although DP says there were several OSHA violations.

    Ah well... Soemthing else to think about when I cruise down the corridors with all the biohazard warnings on the doors. LOL.

    I watched "Conan the Barbadian" on DVD this weekend. All I can say is "bleck!" I can't really remember a past-mediocre movie I've seen. However, I did see "The Lion King 3D" when it came out in theaters. I sang the songs all the way through the movie! ;)

    Puppet Master (1989) ~ http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0098143/

    A cool little film about puppets brought to life with ancient Egyptian 'magic'. I thought the story held up pretty well and the effects are excellent :D Highly recommended :cool:

    let it be me (1995). Currently on Starz . Thought I saw most ballroom/tango dance movies. I liked this one because didn't follow the usual plot, that is pro/am hook up compete or do a show. How many ballroom dance movies can you think of in the last 50 years that does n't fix that plot! Set in dance studio .

    OMG, I LOVED Coraline! Loved, loved, loved it! (I like movies that play with your mind.)

    I saw Sixteen Candles for the first time yesterday. :)
