Top five films seen this year...
1, I Robot (though the very last 1 minute scene was stchupid)
2, Eternal sunshine of the spotless mind. (Jim carey, best film he's ever done so far).
3, Van helsing (sad though en I)
4, Fahrenheit 9/11
Just watching Gothika now...
What top 5 have you seen lately and what would you recommend?
PS, Alien vs Predator is so predictable and stupid, shaun of the dead is hilarious and the biggest disappiontment was "The Village", real eerie to start with, then a big flop
The Butterfly Effect
Man on Fire
The Manchurian Candidate
My Baby's Daddy
Starsky & Hutch
Texas Chainsaw Massacre (the original)
Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen
Team America World Police

Starsky & Hutch Stef agrees with SP !
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (very good flick, but I think Carrey was better in The Truman Show)
I thought Farenheit 9/11 was annoying. Yeah some of it was interesting, even disturbing (especially the scene in front of the Saudi Arabian embassy), and he brings up some valid points but it felt too often manipulative and I really didn't appreciate how Moore spliced people into the picture behind Bush pretending to fluff his hair. There was no need for that.

Tex, I haven't heard this one! Where did you hear this? It looked real to me. I want to know more...
Well when I watched it, I noticed that there was an outline around Bush (you know the scene where he's sitting at the desk in the Oval Office?) and the woman is brushing his hair was (at least to me) clearly dubbed in. The light shading on her was different than on Bush, as was the picture.
It's a little thing, and I'm sure things like that happen before anyone gives a TV presentation but it just smacked wrong to me. Moore could have made his point(s) without such cheap theatrics. Frankly I agree with most of what he had to say, and I'm very worried about the near future with the Iraq situation. Maybe it's the experience with the Witnesses, but I have a very low tolerance for anyone who plays fast and loose with facts or appearances. I don't want someone screwing with my head.
