im thinking meryl streep may pull it off on sunday. kate's been campaigning too much...harvey's been campaigning too much. the campaigning is getting to be a turn off. i didn't like the holocaust joke either.

Tropic Thunder or Burn After Reading.

Morgan said...

Brokeback Mountain.

E Dot said...

Happy-Go-Lucky....

In my collection, I always love watching 'Erin Brockavich' - "Bite my ass, Krispy Kreme!"

Branden said...

I would watch "The Wrestler" in a heartbeat.

Dame James Henry said...

I've really been craving Day for Night and The Godless Girl (Cecil B. De Mille's last silent movie) for the past week or so but haven't found time to pop them in my DVD player. As for new releases, I have been DYING to get my hands on The Class. I love inspirational teacher dramas, no matter how awful, and since this one's actually getting good reviews, I feel like I need to see it immediately.

NATHANIEL R said...

dame james -- you do. it's g-reat.

jimmy -yes! i love Moonstruck too. I was so rooting for it to win best picture that year. (sigh)

SolShine7 said...

Griffin & Phoenix

Nick Plowman said...

The Class, damn it. And it would be my first viewing. Ugh.

Emily said...

I really wanna see Doubt again.. its showing in like NO cinemas near me even tho its only been out 2 weeks (and had LOTS of advertising). by the time its out at my local independent cinema, the dvd will be out!!!

mrripley said...

terms of endearment "give my daughter the shot" or postacrds from the edge "it twirrrrrrrled up" or steel magnolias "do not try to get on my good side i no longer have one"

Brian said...

Big Man Japan, for some reason. But it doesn't get released until May.

Derek said...

I really want to see Coraline in 3-D.

Greg said...

Pulp Fiction. I haven't watched it in a couple years. We've been quoting it a lot at work lately, so I'll be revisiting an old friend soon... maybe even tonight.

Actionman said...

If I went to the theater, I'd see Coraline in 3-D again.

If I was home, I'd either pop in my new Body of Lies DVD (very underrated movie) or I'd throw on Pineapple Express.

Billy Held An Oscar said...

The Hours.

I feel like putting rocks in my pockets and eating crab.

TomW said...

Grease! I dont know why but I havent seen it in years...

Anonymous said...

Birth

João Daniel said...

Volver and/or Moulin Rouge!

And Transamerica, i bought the dvd recently.

m. said...

Memoirs of a Geisha..... I don't know why, I didn't like it that much when it came out

But there you go..........

CHris Na Taraja said...

I want to see RACHEAL GETTING MARRIED a second time, but right now i could see RUN LOLA RUN

Cristhian said...

Amarcord. Even though i saw it aat the Nuart in L.A. on Saturday, I think i need to watch it with the commentary.
Also, I've been dying to see Last Year At Marienbad again, but Criterion Collection won't release it! Grrr....

Mikadzuki said...

Hard Eight.

KEVIN M. said...

Rachel Getting Married.

Shawn said...

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

Flosh said...

at home, The Long Goodbye.
in theaters, Coraline.

i reaaallly wish i'd seen that yesterday instead of the Friday the 13th remake. every couple of years i become convinced that i like horror movies a lot more than i do. then movies like Friday the 13th set me straight.

Kurtis O said...

"Doubt." I've been wanting to see it again for two months.
And I can't wait for "Milk" and "Rachel" to arrive on DVD.

LaDeeDuh said...

I'm doing a birthday-movie-watching-day for my friend, and so far, the list of "potentials" includes:
rocky horror
1960's Batman
pineapple express
a buffy mini-marathon (you know, to give the day some gravitas)
:)

Paul Outlaw said...

Recent (not yet seen): Rachel Getting Married

Recent (already seen): The Curious Case of Benjamin Button

Otherwise (not yet seen): The Defector (only MC film I have never seen -- any tips on finding it?)

Otherwise (already seen): Brazil

Dave said...

Before Sunrise. And in cinemas, I can't wait for Vicky Cristina Barcelona this Friday. (I like to cut these things close.)

Ziyad said...

Caramel. Great unknown movie, it's like an Arab "Volver"

Agustin said...

I definitely want to see Rachel Getting Married, it's getting here in April! arghh
Sometimes I really hate living in the end of the world

Jose said...

"Australia"!
And I won free tickets so I'm on my way right now.

Anonymous said...

I Want to See American Beauty again.

But little bit offtopic hasn't the movie year started off great with Two Lovers and Coraline getting great reviews and the documentary Must Read after my death has 100% at RT of 13 reviews?

sphinx said...

Shine

woodstock said...

la dolce vita. i saw amarcord today and i'm allover fellini again.


but if not, i'd love to see australia again today. it somehow felt like prozac to me.

John said...

Barry Lyndon or Talk to Her

Erik said...

The Insider

Catherine said...

First time viewing, Coraline. I met Neil Gaiman yesterday!

Repeat viewing, LifeSize. It's been a long day.

Rob said...

I'm thinking I need to borrow my brothers copy of 'Volver', oh and work my way through Kate Winslet's back catalogue, before her Oscar win on sunday.

Mantas said...

At the moment I really want to watch Topsy Turvy again.

Rob said...

Yeah, maybe some early stuff. Hamlet, Hideous Kinky or Jude.

Rob said...

Mantras - Topsy Turvey is my favourite Mike Leigh movie!

How that lost the screenplay oscar I will never know. Astonishingly well written. People crow about Hawkins this year, but Broadbent and Spall's snubs were just as outrageous! (Although more expected).

Casey Fiore said...

in bruges... and i think i will

Anonymous said...

The Hours

NATHANIEL R said...

yes topsy turvy is a beauty. And yes Broadbent is arguably better than any of the Oscar nominees that year... and some put together. Just WOW on that performance.

Rob said...

It's just SO good. I never tire of the brilliance of that picture. I can't quite forget what a brilliant year 1999 was for film, and what a vile bunch of nominees the Academy produced for us.

I even liked Hillary Swank back then, although Kate Winslet in Holy Smoke would have got my vote in some alternative universe.

Kamila said...

"The Incredible Hulk".

Cliff said...

Milk. I think Sean Penn gave the performance of a lifetime, and I am not his biggest fan. When those bullets entered Harvey Milk, I actually was catapulted back in my seat I was so absorbed in the character. That has never happened to me before.

NATHANIEL R said...

rob, as you probably know Kate and Hilary Swank are #1 and #2 for me that year, too.

in fact... right now a triple feature of those three movies sounds AMAZING

topsy turvy, holy smoke! and boys don't cry.

(yes please x 3)

Dimi said...

Rachel Getting Married. No doubt. After I saw it, I was still contemplating it but I've liked it more and more every day since.

NATHANIEL R said...

dimi that was my experience of it too. i loved it while watching it and it just kept growing on me thereafter.

henry said...

Garden State. Or Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.

Dimi said...

I blame Tunde and his soulfulness.

Eli said...

Magnolia. I'm amazed I can keep watching that, considering it's three hours long. Of all the wonderful scenes though, I love the Julianne Moore breakdown at the drugstore. "and you have the nerve to call me lady?? shame on you! shame on you."

CJ said...

The Lord of the Rings trilogy!

Rob said...

Nate, I recalled you liked Holy Smoke, but I must admit I'd forgotten of their placings.

I can't believe how little love that performance got really. She placed #2 at NYFCC I believe.

For me its still amongst her best work.

All this talk of Topsy Turvey is going to have me raiding the DVD cupboard.

Is anyone else dreadully excited about Sunday ? I'm quite giddy already.

ringssinger said...

Actually, any one of Robert Downey Jr's films. I think I'll go look through my library (I think I have about 20!) and pop in the first one that tickles my fancy...
