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.
25. Barbershop  Light movie, and pretty funny.  I'd heard it was good, and I definitely enjoyed it.
26. Babies very cute, and we westerners way smother our kids.  Look out for goats!
27. Shrek 4 It was what it was.  Needed more Gingy and Puss.
28. A Lot Like Love Ashton Kutcher is actually pretty good! I liked this movie alot- it would be a good one to watch again.
29. Harold and Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay. Like the first one better, but NPH makes this one for me.
30. Leonard Maltin's Animation Favorites I'm counting these, because they are movie shorts. Sponsored by the Canadian Film board. Interesting, especially some of the really old ones. Thanks, Netflix.

31. Desk Set Hepburn/Tracy as a reference librarian and an efficiency expert.  Still very relevant to today, though google has made lots of the drama obsolete.  Very good!

So sad. So very sad. Depressing.
Makes me wonder why I even get up in the morning.

Because you're not a burnt out, druggie loser.

1) The Hangover - It was funny I guess.  Never been to Vegas, so a lot of it was lost on me.
2) Inglorious Basterds - Pretty kickass when Brad Pitt was on the screen.  Still cool otherwise.
3) District 9 - One of the best Sci-Fi movies I've ever seen.  I'm buying this one to add to my DVD collection of like 20 films.
4) G-Force - About as lame as I figured it would be.  I'm still amazed Tracy Jordan does voice overs for kids movies.
5) Moon - I'd never even heard of this before I read all of your reviews.  I liked it.  I wasn't blown away by it, but I thought it was a good, solid sci-fi movie.  It was a refreshing change to have the robot not trying to kill the guy.
6) The Hurt Locker - I liked this.  I've been sick of shoot 'em up war movies and this was more of a sciency take on war.  I wish there was more cool bomb diffusing stuff.
7) 9 - Pretty much as awesome as I expected it to be.
8 ) Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs - I thought it was freakin' hillarious.  So did the kids.  The wife, not so much.  I think she's a purist and wanted it to be like the book.  But face it, that would be pretty boring.  Loved the Monkey Thought Translator and the Rat Birds.
9) The Fantastic Mr. Fox - An excellent adaptation.  I thought it stayed very true to the spirit of the book.  It was funny and sweet and madcap.  The use of the Beach Boys was pretty artful.
10) Surrogates - Somewhat interesting premise, crappily done.  Once I learned the antagonist's motivation, I was done.
11) Yes Man - Another typical Jim Carrey movie.  It was good, mindless, folding the laundry entertainment.
12) Bright Star - Got suckered into watching this stupid, boring period piece about people wearing silly hats.  So slow my wife even fell asleep and it was her pick.
13) Up In The Air - Depressing watch for me.  Too many lay offs coupled with a boring back story and uninteresting characters.
14) Ponyo - This was excellent.  Miyazaki always delivers on the super adorable.
15) The Princess and the Frog - The kids loved it, the wife had some kind of argument on how Disney is racist, I just thought it was awesome animation and enjoyed the whole thing.
16) Where the Wild Things Are - Boring as shit.  It was like taking some off your favorite childhood creatures and using them as puppets to conduct a therapy session.
17) Astro Boy - I used to love watching this show when I was a kid, so I was worried about this one.  They did a really good job with it though and made Astro Boy the same humble super powered robot he was in the manga.
18) Twilight: New Moon - I got guilted into watching this with the wife.  The only thing good I can say about it was it was tbetter than the first one, much in the same way that one turd is a prettier shade of brown than another one.
19) How To train Your Dragon 2D - What a cool movie.  Pretty faithful to the original books and really fun and heartwarming.  We loved it.
20) Ninja Assasin - Stupidly boring.
21) Strangers on a Train - Caught this Saturday night on TCM's Essentials series.  I would agree that it is essential viewing.  It was the best Hitchcock movie I've ever seen.
22) Kick-Ass - What a fun movie.  Pretty much a must see for comic book nerds.
23) Sherlock Holmes - WOW!...soooooo good.  I really hope there's a sequel and that it is also directed by Guy Ritchie.  Just checked IMDB on a whim and it looks like there will be one...Untitled Sherlock Holmes Sequel (2011) (pre-production)
24) Alice in Wonderland - We really dug this.  Pretty cool effects and whatnot.  Loved the Jabberwocky and and how they tried to model a lot of it from the Lewis Carrol novel illustrations.
25) The Road - Finally got to check this out.  Similar to the book, but not as bleak, if you can imagine that.  The narrative style was o.k., but there's no way they could have come close to the narrative style in the book.  Save your money and go to the library and get the book.
26) Bruno - Alright...I'm getting off the Sasha Baron Cohen train now.
27) I Love You Man - This movie was great.  I related with the main character on just about every level.
28 - 30) Toy Story 1, 2 & 3 - I've seen bits and pieces of 1 and 2, but never the whole movie.  In the build up to the new release, we DVRd 1 and 2 and I finally got a chance to watch them.  Each film was consistently excellent.  3 was equally excellent.  Buzz's Spanish Mode still has me cracking up.
29) The Last Airbender 2D - Reading the reviews before I went, I expected this movie to suck.  I was happily surprised that it didn't suck.  I'm a big fan of the cartoon, so I didn't want it to suck.  I think they did a good job with casting and the effects were good.  They could have done a lot of stuff differently, but I'm not gonna' complain too much.  I only have two major gripes.  They change the pronunciation of almost all of the character's names for some reason.  This nagged at me throughout the whole movie.  Also, Appa and Momo were kinda' thrown in as if they were an afterthought.  They never showed much detail on Appa and Momo just kinda' flitted around the screen every once in awhile.  Oh, and one other thing...there was no humor in the film.  Soka was serious all the time and he's usually the comic relief.  But aside from that, it wasn't horrible.  The kids loved it.
30) The Last Truck: Closing of a GM Plant - A decent documentary.  Hit close to home because it reminded me of my own layoff experiences from a manufacturing plant.  It generated a lot of discussion between me and the wife.

31) The Tooth Fairy - Went to go see Despicable Me in 3D last night but it was sold out, sooooo, with upset kids in tow we found a Redbox and I was basically at their mercy.  It was about as awful as you'd expect.  I was really surprised that Julie Andrews and Billy Crystal were in it.  Either those two are scraping for money or they had some serious cash to make this movie.  I doubt the later.

32) The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus - I was told by a friend that this was o.k. to watch with the kids.  The first half was, and fortunately, it was time for bed in the middle of the movie.  The second half was way too deep for them.  It was completely good for me though.  I love Terry Gilliam films and this one fits right in with the rest.

51. The Departed
52. The Fast and the Furious
53. The Count of Monte Cristo


Watched The Departed on FX. 2 things to point out:
1) It was on TV. That means there was a lot of "freaking" in there. I mean, so much so that I had nightmares in which everyone was cursing and yelling at each other by saying freaking.  I highly recommend you put yourself through this torture just b/c it's so funny.
2) Evidently some marketing genius decided that the only people who will watch The Departed are Leo DiCaprio fans, and therefore they bought one 2 minute time slot per commercial break to advertise for Inception. I wanted to see that movie before, but now I feel I've seen EVERY scene and EVERY character and EVERY creepy element to it that I think I might pass on it. That was one of the worst marketing decisions ever.

33. Toy Story 3

34. Inception (4/5): Dan, see it despite what you think of it because of the onslaught of advertising. It's about on par with The Prestige in terms of setup, intricacy and payoff, and if you see a trailer for it, the majority of the trailer happens in the first half. Nolan works best with ideas and scripts that are tricky little ballets of words and ideas while maintaining a coherent and cohesive tale. Even though the setup makes it seem like you can get lost in what is going on, I never lost my place as to what dream I was in, even during the climax where there is four of them at once. Dicaprio wasn't annoying, for once, and every supporting actor in this was great and believable. It's not as strong as Dark Knight in terms of characterization, but since Nolan isn't dealing with distinct personalities here, it doesn't have to be. It's easily the best, most thought-provoking film of the summer.

26. The Informant! - Say what you will about Matt Damon, but he really pulled off this character.  You could never pinpoint where the guy was lying and when he wasn't.  Truly crazy that this was based on real life.  Gonna have to plunk down a buck to download the This American Life episode about the guy.

27. Despicable Me - Really, really liked it.  Clever and funny, plenty of humor for the adults such as the Evil Bank sign indicating that it was formerly Lehman Brothers.  The minions were fun, the kids in the movie were fun, hearing Steve Carrel do that accent for an hour and a half was fun, the visual design of the film was fun... it's just, fun.

28. Iron Giant - Been hearing how wonderful this was for years but just got around to seeing it.  The hype was true for once, really great movie for a lazy Saturday night with a ten year old.
