Please post movies that you’ve enjoyed. If you feel like posting a short description or reason why you recommend it, that’s great. If not, that’s fine too. I don’t care what genre the movie is, I’m just looking for a good list to put in my queue for netflix.

I know this thread has probably been done before but not too recently so please don’t yell at me for this. Also, I know this probably belongs under Entertainment but I don’t think anyone looks at that section.

Whatever you do, don’t rent The Grudge. Terrible flick. It was so boring I had to turn it off after about 20 minutes. Wasn’t even scary. Now before you all say "hay that isn’t out yet :cop: " my girlfriend works at blockbuster so we get to rent movies usually 1-2 weeks before release date.

On another topic, hasn’t really been any new release movies that were worth mentioning. :sad:

It’s a little beter if you see the movie it is based on first but you have to like that Japanese type of horror movie. It’s usally not much slash em up graphical horror like American movies. It’s usally more just peoples minds getting taken over by demons of some sort. If you do like that type, check out some of the tomie movies, they are pretty twisted. I have seen so many movies that I am out of good selection so I have been watching some of the Japanese stuff.
