1. Nowhere to run.
2. Godzilla (told the kiddo "It's just a cheesy monster movie", she kept asking me "So are the monster's legs made of cheese?")
3. The mask
4. Mrs. Pettigrew lives for a day.
5. The fifth element
6. Kindergarten cop
7. Nanny McPhee
8. The lion, the witch, and the wardrobe
9. Prince Caspian
10. Magnificent Obsession (1935) - Thank you Criterion Collection!
11. 27 Dresses
12. Indiana Jones and Raiders of the Lost Ark
13. Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom - Willie is one of the most annoying female characters EVER.
14. Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade
15. Sherlock Holmes - We enjoyed it well enough, the slo-mo bits were a bit annoying. I enjoyed Jude Law much more than Robert Downey Jr. The trailers for Iron Man 2 and Clash of the Titans were pretty freaking sweet though.
16. Indiana Jones and the crystal skull (or whatever the full title is) - Meh, it broke up the robotech marathon.
17. Driving Miss Daisy
18. Monsters vs. Aliens
19. Beavis & Butthead do America
20. Star Wars: a new hope
21. Empire strikes back
22. Return of the Jedi
23. Ultimate Avengers
24. Buckets of Blood (Steve had never seen it)
25. Clash of the Titans - Oh Lisa Rinna, would you have married Harry if he had remained prettier than you?
26. Black Cadillac - I am convinced this movie is what made Randy Quaid go off the deep end.
27. Lady & the tramp
28. The little mermaid
29. Avatar

30. Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
31. GI Joe: rise of the cobra

Took a vanload of kids to see this at the cheap movies as part of Alex's 8th birthday sleepover.  I thought it would be pretty stupid, but it was actually fairly action packed, even if the main young adult actors stepped right out of the Nickelodeon sitcom school of acting (hammy, without conveying much real emotion).  They must have been offering piles of money for this to attract the likes of Catherine Keener, Pierce Brosnan, Uma Thurman, and Sean Bean, among others.  Though Steve Coogan fit right in.  Still, the PG rating may have been actually too low, as there were lots of frightening looking creatures, and a whole bunch of intense action scenes... even a couple of scenes in the Underworld with some lost souls coming out of the fireplace.  I actually thought some of the kids might be too scared to go to sleep after, but there were no long term ill effects that I noticed.  At least, not until I dress up as the Hydra for this Halloween.

So why are you dressed that way now?

1) Quarantine
2) Once
3) Don't Say a Word
4) Closer
5) The Killing Room
6) Hide
7) Rachel Getting Married
8 ) Easier With Practice
9) Zoolander
10) The Boondock Saints
11) The Air I Breathe
12) Iron Man 2
13) Party Monster
14) Trucker

Party Monster is still a great movie.  Just the pure ridiculousness of it is amazing.

Trucker was good, but slow.  And it didn't have enough Nathan Fillion.

New-to-me movies are bolded.

1. Up In the Air
2. Bottle Rocket
3. The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus  I could have used a little bit more exposition, but visually amazing.
4. The Hangover Funny, but Bradley Cooper's character was annoying. Would have been better in the theater
5. Avatar 3-D version.  As has been stated before, so pretty
6. The House Bunny It didn't suck. And was way more conservative/traditional than I would have expected.
7. Keeping Mum Maggie Smith plays a psychopath, Rowan Atkinson plays a normal person, and Patrick Swayze plays a sleazy golf pro.
8. Tin Man Sy-fy mini series redoing "The Wizard of Oz".  Stick to the original, as Zooey D. is annoying and Alan Cumming is underused.
9. The Talented Mr. Ripley Who knew you could feel sympathy for a psychopath?
10. When in Rome Cute, predictable, and snappier than expected.
11. Gods and Monsters very quiet film, and interesting look at the director who created Frankenstein and Showboat.
12. 2010 Academy Award Nominated Animated Short Films
13. 2010 Academy Award Nominated Short Films
14. In Good Company Dennis Quaid = good, Scarlett Johannsen = I don't understand the appeal.
15. Shaun the Sheep off the Baa By Nick Park, lots of sheep shorts. Previews were for the under 5 yo crowd.
16. Alice in Wonderland 3D.  Just enough Johnny Depp.  Good flick, very fun, and remarkably not scary-creepy.
17. Saving Face Chinese lesbian living in New York tries to keep her life from her mother.
18. Hogfather Another Sy-Fy type movie. Really need to stop watching these, because they aren't as good as they should be.
19. Fanboys So fun, and the music was dead-on.  I'll leave all other fan-wanking to people more vested in Star wars.
20. How to Train Your Dragon 3-d.  I think I should be getting residuals for dragon-inspiration.  Toothless= dead ringer for my cat!
21. Sex, Lies, and Videotape- I still love James Spader, though he has creepy characters nailed.
22. 17 Again.  Sucked Again
23. The Proposal- not too bad on the plane
24. Four Rooms  Interesting combo of short films.  Tarantino is annoying, though.

32. Tooth Fairy - 2.5

Part of Ethan's birthday celebration Friday night.  We were going to go to the drive-in to see the last Shrek movie, but it was a rain out.  So we got this instead, at the bargain movie theaters.  Though they should've paid us to watch this dreck.  Seriously, what were Stephen Merchant, Julie Andrews, and Billy Crystal doing in this?  $$$$$$$

33. Serpico - 8.5

The grimy-ness of early '70's NYC just oozes off the screen in this fascinating portrait.  Nice to see Pacino before he got too big for his britches.  Some of the outfits he was wearing though... I'm just saying, no wonder he was a bit of an outcast in the force.  They did a good job of moving the whole thing along, while getting the point of each scene across, and not lingering for dramatic effect too long on any one thing.

I know a lot of randomvillains like this so I won't get too snarky other than saying I didn't really like it the first time I saw it, and a rewatching - try as I might - didn't really change my mind. It did however remind me to renew my subscription to Playboy magazine

12. Raiders of the Lost Ark - saw this at 20th Century Theatre for free tonight. very fun, it had been years since I'd watched it, and it was a lot of fun sitting in a nearly packed theatre watching Nazis melt. Actually cheered me up after a so-far shitacular work week.
