  1. I love movies - don't get to see too many of them in the theater - mostly rent them and watch on dvd. I think a great deal is lost this way. I love the large screen and large audio that you get in the theater.
    Anyway, caught Oprah's show yesterday (rarely get to do that) and she listed 5 new movies that are must sees according to her
    Revolutionary Road with Kate Winslet
    The Reader with Kate Winslet
    The Wrestler with Mickey Rourke
    Doubt with Meryl Streep
    Frost Nixon by Ron Howard
    Ain't nothin' wrong with this list, ya think?
    I haven't seen any of these, so I have a lot to look forward to,
    If you disagree that they belong on the list of this year's great films, I would like to hear your comments, but please don't give away the plots - I still like to watch and make up my own mind about such things

    Well the first question is, "Is this Genre specific, it seems like the list is?"

    Any movie with Kate Winslet in it is a "must see" for me.

    I don't know of it is genre specific
    I do know that they all seem to have more 'grit' to them than the usual 'chick flicks' I end up seeing with my gal friends.
    I intend to break off the chick flick road for a bit and catch these for a change of pace.
    I don't like sci fi, horror, or shoot-em-up movies, so finding something good to watch is not always easy, but it sure is always very satisfying
