I was given a gift card for Barnes and Noble…one of the most overpriced book/dvd/music sites on the internet. But hey, can’t look a free gift card in the mouth now can we?
I’d like to get a movie or two that I haven’t seen, and is actually worth watching.
If you want to join in, nominate one or two movies made in the last 10yrs that you think are worth watching. I must warn anyone chiming in that I am extremely picky, but will appreciate any suggestions.
WARNING! Next section is bitter and elitist. Read with caution.
I like comedies that are witty, not stupid. Dumb and dumber comedies tend to piss me off rather than amuse me.
I like dramas and action shows with well written plots starring people who can actually act, not completely unreasonable events occurring with ever greater explosions to punctuate the nonsense.
I like well-crafted romantic comedies, though there haven’t been more than three made in the last 10 yrs that meet that criteria.
Sci-fi is a favorite genre, though I’ve probably seen most new films in this category.
Horror/slasher/teen drivel I can do without.

So, you got anything that I may have missed? Out of the mainstream is perfectly fine…I have been watching more and more obscure films or foreign films since Hollywood has become such a wasteland.
