Saw Win Win the other day. First half was "ok why should I care about these people?", second half I was able to get into it a bit, but overall it was nothing spectacular. I laughed out loud maybe 3 times. Indie dramedies are starting to wear on me.
Trailer of Water For Elephants has Robert Pattinson clean-shaven, hair neatly combed, smiling often, and in color. Watching the hell out of this movie.

Rubber is a very, very weird film.
I really want to see that.
OK, I have to review something released along the lines of this year so far. What would you recommend?
Any other parameters?
Let's see here...UNKNOWN?

Yup, seems like my kind of deal. Thanks, Zy.
Saw the new Robin Hood film.
Not a huge fan of the Hollywood History, but the Black and White Morality bothers me way more.
At the rate the film is going, the squeal (assuming there is one) will feature Robin Hood and co starting a shelter for homeless pets in Sherwood Forest to protect all the kittens that are being eaten by King John.
King John will also have set forth numerous laws restricting the kittens political power because he just hates freedom that much.
The Incredibles is still my favorite film. Just rewatched it with my flatmates.
Watched Water For Elephants. It was every bit the feel-good movie I expected it to be. Going to read the book when I can.
I simply cannot believe I found a copy of Private Parts (the Paul Bartel film, not the *ahem!* other one) at Big Lots! And for all of $3!
Big Lots is an awesome place to hunt for DVDs. I got the first Season of Exosquad for $8 if memory serves.

Colombiana sounds like it has potential.
Chocolat: Like Amelie, but in English. With an Irish-accented Johnny Depp. And that's not a bad thing at all.
I have watched Tangled and it was glorious!
ALERT! ALERT! ALERT!
March 21st, 2012, the 70th anniversary of the original premiere of Casablanca there will be special, one-time only showing in movie theatres across the US. You can go to this page and in the box where it says "Buy Tickets" enter your zip code and see if any theatre near you will be showing it.
It's going to be shown in Davenport, so I will get to see Casablanca, on a full-sized screen, with a top-notch sound system.
"I'm excited" is putting it mildly.

Thinking of going to this. It's thirty five dollars, but it's a full day of entertainment, plus Avengers at the end.
^ Damn good deal, if you have the time for it. $35/6 movies is $5.83 a movie. Dunno about Houston prices, but that beats even the matinee prices around here in NW S. Carolina.
And, for the record, I'm jealous.
Hmmmm, I think the AMC does it for five or six dollars if you go before noon. However, that deal includes the Avengers film at the end. Thing is, I don't know if I can handle fourteen hours in one sitting. Plus the food.
I am curious if I'll see Eddie there, he lives in Texas right? Or is that the servers?

The servers live in Texas. Eddie lives in the Bahamas. Right on the beach. The lucky so-and-so.
Ah, I must have been thinking of someone else then.
I am looking for some movies. I want to do a themed month on changing gender roles through history in my blog (linked in my sig), but I only have one in mind. Part of what makes it tricky is that it has to be a movie I haven't seen before.
(20s/)30s/40s: (don't have one yet)
50s/60s: (no ideas, should be a lot of them)
70s/80s: Kramer Vs Kramer
90s/2000s: (not sure)
Some examples that I have come up with that don't fit are Mr. Mom (too close to Kramer Vs. Kramer in time and possibly subject), Thoroughly Modern Millie (seen it), Some Like It Hot (seen it), and His Girl Friday (seen it).
Hmm... I presume you're looking for movies that have gender dynamics in clear view...
What about Ever After for the 90s/aughts?
