    Movies that no one saw? Box office failures? Straight to video movies? I need a hint.

    I only recognize Private Resort but I saw that when I was a little kid.

    My last 3 Netflix movies:

    The Fountain - This movie sucked.
    Apocalypto - Good.
    Pan's Labyrinth - Good.

    My oldest sister mourns the fact that the time she spent watching The Weatherman is two hours of her life that she'll never get back. I thanked her for the warning.

    We just got X-Men 3 in the mail from Netflix. Anybody seen it?

    Connie, you would probably like the Libertine, you've probably seen it?

    "The story of John Wilmot (Depp), a.k.a. the Earl of Rochester, a 17th century poet who famously drank and debauched his way to an early grave, only to earn posthumous critical acclaim for his life's work."

    I didn't like it.

    "We just got X-Men 3 in the mail from Netflix. Anybody seen it?"

    It was alright. I think if you're an XMen fan or liked the first ones you'll probably like it. As far as Super Hero type movies the last 2 I saw that I like were Superman 2 and the last Batman, Batman Begins, that was a real good movie.

    I don't know how much you're into horror, but that's pretty much all I watch :

    Cabin Fever , 2001 Maniacs, and Hostel are all Eli Roth films (I think he directed 2 of them and produced one) They combine humor and gore so brilliantly you just can't help but watch them twice. 2001 Maniacs also has Robert Englund in it, you know, the guy who played Freddy Kruegar. I had a poster of him on my wall in high school

    The new Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning was excellent!

    If you can find it on video, there was a movie on Sci Fi a few months ago that completely weirded me out. It was called Rest Stop. Kind of like Hitcher and Ride themed, it had some scenes that made me look away! But the story line is great also.

    Wolfcreek was another great "don't go talking to strangers or go backpacking without a weapon" type flick. Even better, it's based on a true story!

    Slither was well.........dumb. But it had some pretty good effects. I guess if you're into campy style humor with your blood and guts it's alright. (not as funny as Cabin Fever and 2001 Maniacs)

    This is one that is not of the "hack and slash" variety of horror, but that is easily the best gothic horror film I have seen. It is called The Devil's Backbone (by the same writer/director of Pan's Labyrinth) and is impressive in almost everyway. Not a lot of blood or "kills" but packs a hell of an impact.

    Awesome! I'm gonna check it out! Thanks

    I've been hearing a lot of good things about Pan's Labrynth and I realllly want to see it.

    If anyone has seen the remake of The Wicker Man and was like "huh?" Don't feel alone. I saw the original 1960's version and it is way better!

    Another great impact film that I loved was Dead Again with Kenneth Brannaugh and his former wife, gods alive I can't think of her name, she's english and a phenomenal actress. Some one help me out here,lol.

    House of 1,000 Corpses and The Devil's Rejects (the sequal) are also fabulous. Both are by Rob Zombie (yummy) and entertaining from start to finish!

    One of favorite of all times is Cadence with Charlie and Martin Sheen. It's a drama but has some great humorous moments

    That's been in my Netflix queue for a while. Maybe I'll bump it to the head of the line...

    *remake drops from no. 1 overall to 4th because some of the best numbers in the stage version were cut from the movie.

    Ok, my all time favorite movie: Murder By Death, written by Neil Simon.

    Starring:

    Peter Sellers (Sidney Wang)
    Peter Falk (Sam Diamond)
    Eileen Brennan (Tess Skeffington)
    Alec Guinness (Jamesir Bensonmum - the butler)
    David Niven (Dick Charleston)
    Maggie Smith (Dora Charleston)
    James Coco (Inspector Milo Perrier)
    Truman Capote (Lionel Twain)
    James Cromwell (Marcel Cassette)
    Elsa Lanchester (Jessica Marbles)

    A millionaire, Lionel Twain, invites the 5 most brilliant detectives to dinner. Lionel Twain tells the detectives that shortly after midnight, a murder will occur. The first detective to solve it will receive a million dollars and be declared the world's #1 detective. Hilarity ensues...

    You must rent it!
    -Don't criticize anyone til you've walked a mile in their shoes. Then when you do criticize them, you'll be a mile away and have their shoes.

    Without your glowing recommendation and synopsis, I would never have rented this movie. Now I'll rent it ASAP! Thanks Meadowmufn!

    It's definitely good for a few chuckles. If you're a murder mystery fan (of book or film), you'll recognize who the main characters are patterned after.

    One bit of trivia, the drawings of the characters in the opening of the film are done by Charles Addams of Addams Family fame.
