Re: Saw a couple of great movies recently (recommend a movie master thread)
Here's a few i recently Netflix'd recently
The Guardian, 2006 (DVD)- coast guard rescue movie... sorta like a top gun without the annoying tom cruise. little rough opening but a good movie.
World Trade Center, 2006 (HD-DVD) - really well done movie... not so much a terrorist/recap movie but a touching story about some rescue efforts based on real life.
Poseidon, 2006 (HD-DVD) - pretty good popcorn movie... nothing great but will hold your attention. i saw the original in theatres as a kid during a double matinee repeat and this one is a decent remake.
Mission: Impossible III, 2006 (HD-DVD). JJ Abrams should have spent his energy on Lost and not this hollywood redux. A mishmosh of a movie really... i don't get what they were thinking.
V for Vendetta, 2006 (HD-DVD) - very well done... not sure what category of movie i'd place this in - almost a superhero type - but mostly intelligent within those confines. if portman acted this good in EP1-3 those movies would have been alot better. that annoying actress almost ruined "Heat" too.
King Kong, 2005 (HD-DVD) the 1933 version is one of my favorite movies of all time and this was a good remake. Atmospheric, took it's time - not the typical hollywood "wrap it up in 10 minutes" plot and made you feel for Kong's as he meets his demise.
Casablanca, 1942 (HD-DVD) - awesome classic had to rent the high def version and it looked amazing.
Dick and Jane - absolute garbage my sis-in law lent me... didn't watch it past the first 40 minutes.
