    The Good Movie Thread

    So, we have a music thread and a coffee lounge, but we don't have a movie thread.

    I am always looking for movies to watch, and I assume that others are also looking for movies that they, too, might find interesting but haven't seen yet.

    I've started this thread in hopes to get some opinions and suggestions on movies people have watched recently.

    I'll start:

    So, I watched "Too Big To Fail" last night. It was an "OK" movie. A little slow and not enough action, but it was still good if you like money movies (gotta start the thread with a money movie !)

    I'd give it maybe a 6.5/10.

    IMDb - Too Big To Fail

    Wristcutters: A Love Story

    I wouldn't consider this a comedy, although in a way it was a dark comedy. Not one that most people would pick out to watch considering the storyline, but it turned out to be quite good.

    8.5/10

    I watched "Columbiana" The other night. It was ok nothing great just another typical action flick. I'd say 6/10

    My fav movies of all time are by director Danny Boyle

    He made Trainspotting/The Beach/ 28 days Later / Sunshine/ Slumdog Millionaire and most recently 127 hours.

    I'm also a big documentary nut.

    Danny Boyle films are amazing!

    Tonight on HBO Canada was Paradise Lost 3. It is an interesting documentary about the Memphis 3 trial of the early 90s in which 3 high school boys were sentenced to life in prison for the murders of 3 8 year old boys. It was quite a powerful documentary IMO. I do not like it when people disclose too much information about movies so I will leave it at that with the exception of a final warning potential viewers that it contains some extremely graphic images.

    Great idea.

    Has anyone here seen $5 a Day with Christopher Walken and Sharon Stone? I bought the DVD and am somewhat obsessed with that movie, not sure why.
