    I hadn't seen it since then either. We just watched Memento because my wife decided our daughter would love it. She did.

    YES. The Host is a great movie. Funny and horrifying at the same time.

    Also good, that I've seen recently

    Great list, but holy crap I love The Cranes are Flying. Takes me back to my russian lit studies and watching that movie for the first time as part of a soviet culture class. I think I know what's on tap for this weekend.

    Just watched Fantastic Mr. Fox. A beautifully made gem of a film with a great cast. The stop motion animation is a sight to behold.

    This thread needs more Almodovar!

    Also love Korean movies. Plenty of action but with more emotion and character development than western movies in the same horror/action genre. Check out Joint Security Area, beautiful story, same director as Oldboy.

    I think the acting in Down By Law is on par with Star Trek: TNG but I absolutely love the cinematography.

    Kill List - I need someone to explain this one to me...or maybe I didn't like it enough to pay attention. I'm not sure.

    Then you would love "The Good, the Bad and the Weird" - it was amazing!

    Ones stuck in my head lately:
    Beiutiful
    Nebraska
    Volver

    Beiutiful was excellent, but troubling.

    'Another Earth' showed up on VUDU, it is fantastic.

    Nebraska was good.

    12 Years a Slave was excellent, but difficult to watch at times. Fantastic movie.

    American Hustle is fantastic

    Wolf of Wallstreet was also a great movie.

    I found the Ghost & Mrs Muir (1947) on Netflix. Its excellent.
