I thought we could do with a thread where people post when they've watched something and don't feel like making a new thread.
I'll start by naming a few movies I've recently seen:
The Hunger Games - technically well made but quite thin on characters and emotion. Battle Royale this was not. Just seemed like a lazy book-to-movie adaptation to find the next moneymaker after Harry Potter and Twilight.
The Five-Year Engagement - a bit long and slow in parts, but I'll take more of Emily Blunt any day. Overall a funny and enjoyable movie. It was filmed in Ann Arbor, where some parts take place. Zingerman's gets some nice exposure in the movie.
The Man from Earth - absolutely brilliant sci-fi drama from a few years ago about a professor who gathers a few of his colleagues at his home to say goodbye before moving to a new town. As the movie progresses various intellectual discussions take place as the main character tells a story about his past, which may or may not be true. I hear this one's on Netflix Instant, so go into it blind and just watch it unfold. A fantastic movie that stayed with me and gave me something to chew on. Great discussion of philosophy, religion, history, etc.
V/H/S - I posted this in the horror movie thread, but I'll say again this was one of the more inventive, clever horrors I've come across in a couple of years.

Captain America- Awful
Do the Right Thing- Fantastic Spike Lee flick. Everyone should give this a watch. Mookie does the right thing for those of you who have seen it.
The Dude is stuck in a computer program. Olivia Wilde is hot. Daft Punk lays down a cool sound track. The movie overall sucked.
Your a retard.
You've inspired me to watch Countdown to Liquor Day. Thanks!
Just watched 21 Jump Street. It was a lot better than I had anticipated.
Sparty is our mascot, we are Spartans.
Agreed. Like, A LOT better than I expected. Really funny.
Watched "American Reunion" which was mostly meh, but had a laugh or two.
Also watched "Flowers of War", which was supposedly very good, but my lord was it cheesy.
For the love of Trevor...™
Black Hawk Down (for the 10th or 11th time). Never gets old.
Just watched Man of a Ledge, and all I have to say about it is...
Just watched reunion last night. Better than I thought it would be. As far as comedy was concerned stifler carried the movie.
I watched Gattika the other day...it was about space exploration and person faking out the space agency.
Is that the SyFy channel's version of Gattaca?
It happened one night.
Great film.... Chicks dig it.
Damn, great documentary. I remember they screened this at MSU my senior year and I missed it. Really powerful.
Just watched "Senna"
Dark Star (1974) - directed by John Carpenter, written by and starring Dan O'Bannon (wrote Alien).
Kind of a dark spoof of 2001. Bizarre but really interesting.
BOner jams 3
Just watched "Shaolin Soccer" - a 2001 Chinese movie from Netflix.
Not a bad movie for all ages. If you enjoy Austin Powers type comedy, you'll like this.
Watched the dictator last night...it was aiight, but his rant at the end was pretty ignorant.
Just watched the Sitter with Jonah Hill. Wasn't expecting much but laughed my ass off....
Strange movie based on real accounts of strip search prank call scams. Callers impersonating as police officers have people strip search young girls under the pretense of them being accused of a crime.
Couldn't stop thinking which RCMB poster might be most likely to do this in real life.
Lake of Fire (2006)
Directed by Tony Kaye, who directed American History X. Very powerful abortion documentary that shows both sides of the debate equally. Just brutally open and upfront about a controversial topic that has no clear resolution.
"Martyrs" and "Warrior." Both very good and neither are for the squeemish (especially Martyrs).
i just saw night at the roxyburt it was ok. watch fight club if you havetn it;s my favorite.
