I figured that would be the price to pay for watching this book split into two movies... you get a boring one to set up the better half. Unfortunately, it was a disservice as a film, but probably made the book lovers happy.

I can't say that even the rabid book lovers were in love with all of that crap with them trying to find the Horcruxes, it was incredibly boring in print as well.

In my opinion that last book sucked, so maybe I'm not the one to ask.

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?")

28. The little mermaid
29. Avatar
30. Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
31. GI Joe: rise of the cobra
32. Tinkerbell and the great fairy rescue

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!
32. Best in Show    Still very good, though I prefer a mighty wind
33.Toy Story      Haven't seen in years, but it was soooo good. Am ready to see the third part now!
34. Up     Again, Pixar does amazing things with stories.
35. Pinnochio    Came in half-way through, but I'm counting it as "seen".  Don't lie, or your nose will grow!
36. Toy Story 3 A delightful experience, and I admit, I was teary eyed multiple times.
37. Despicable Me Also fun, and amazingly light. Loved how Vortex's stuff was all Apple-y and seamless.
38. We are Marshall Those kids were babies.  Matthew McC. wasn't bad in this, amazingly
39. Bourne Identity   Time for the annual viewing! Damon is looking like a child in this one. Still so very good.
40. Ponyo Miyazaki does it again, nice tight story, interesting world was created, and the goldfish was red.
41. Pixar's Shorts, Vol. 1 Included the one with the lamp, which I hadn't seen, and the short that inspired Toy Story Very good!
42. Miami Vice  I just couldn't care, but was more excited to see Ciaran Hinds than Colin Farrell.
43. The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus  Better the second time around, still visually amazing.
44. Reality Bites.  Oh, Winona, you so made the wrong decision in this one! (Watching at 35 is very different than at 20)
45. You Again could have been better, but will work very well as a Saturday movie on TNT or something.
46. Easy A A very cute movie, and way more name actors than I expected.  Emma Stone did a great job carrying the movie.
47. Life as we Know It This movie was so made for women- Josh Duhmel w/o shirt, w/ baby, in motorcycle jacket, gets kiss close up.
48. Capote Really good, I liked that it wasn't about the murders specifically.  And the casualness of Harper Lee being there was great. Would have really liked a movie about her.

49. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows I did really like this one.  Can't believe I have to wait until July for the next one!

This was good, but got really tense during the stoning scene...

*whispers*

What?  You mean, this wasn't based on the Shirley Jackson short story that everyone read in high school? 

Ah, no, this was actually a documentary about a lottery for kids to get into the 4 outstanding Charter Schools in Harlem.  The kids they picked were a nice cross-section, although there was not a happy ending for all.  The part of the movie I didn't like was that basically this movie was anti-union, but tried to act like it wasn't.  It also didn't present the best face on legitimate reasons why some folks in the neighborhoods didn't like the attempted expansion of the Harlem Success Academies.  I don't know, maybe there WERE no good reasons against except the unions protecting their own and reverse racism of people in the neighborhood being against largely white-run schools educating mostly black students.

Whatever.  It was good viewing if you are at all interested in the subject, and was also good on a human interest level.  You feel for the kids that get left out at the end.

This was my first thought when I read the title.  And then I got excited thinking that it could be turned into a pretty damn good movie.

129 Cemetery Junction
A gentle, poignant indie dramedy (from the pen of Rickie Gervais and Stephen Merchant) about a trio of disenchanted teenagers coming of age in the UK during the early 70's. It trades on the desire of many teens to 'escape' their surroundings and experience the bigger world around them and the methods by which they achieve it. I really wasn't expecting it to be as good as it was. Believable script, some great acting and a well groovy soundtrack.
130 Who is Harry Nilsson (And Why Is Everybody Talkin' About Him)?
A long-overdue look at the life and career of one of the most unsung stars of the biz that is "rock & roll". The fact that he never _quite_ crossed over in to mass media mainstream appeal is both tragic and astonishing, his melodies and serene vocal style all unique and genuinely emotional. Lots of input from musicians, other songwriters, friends and recording colleagues (Ringo almost too evidently absent) with the right mix of reverence and frippery. Makes you want to blow the dust off a few old albums and enjoy them all over again.
131 The Gene Krupa Story

Julia's relationship with her hubby makes me weepy. They are portrayed as being SO in love. SWOON!
