Default Do You Have a MUST SEE movie?

Here is a movie that I just heard about a couple years ago. It really didn't interest me because I thought it was a "Lawrence of Arabia" type movie. But unfortunately, I was wrong. The movie??

House of Sand and Fog

It had substance - Jennifer Connelly, Ben Kingsley did one great job. One mistake ended up with tragedy all around. It showed how things could change in a blink of an eye and the lifestyle WE know is not the only way. Anyway, rent it, or record it on MAX tomorrow at 4:15 central time. Prepare snacks, get your pillow and quilt ready, take the phone off the hook and get [email protected]!!

For those who have seen it already - what is YOUR take on it? - Oh! don't forget the Kleenex!

I always mention "Crossing Delancy" when someone wants suggestions for a romantic movie.

I just watched the trailer for the movie "One for the Money" based
on the book series by Janet Evanovich "Stephanie Plum".

Since I LOVE her books and sometimes would almost wet my pants
from laughing so hard I can't wait to see HOW this movie compares
to the book. Of course I have yet to see a movie that DOES compare
to the books they are based off.

That is the ONLY movie at the moment that I can really say I MUST
see it.

Couple of movies this year: The Help .... great movie and book ... I bought the book and looking forward to buying the movie. Snowflower and the Secret Fan .... Great book, great movie .... had to find an art theater to see the movie though ... also looking forward to buying this movie.

Glenda - Was War Horse as good as the previews? That movie looks interesting.

My sister & her hubby went to see "We Bought A Zoo" and said it's really good. Hoping to get to see it soon.

I loved The Help. Maybe because I grew up in the south during that time period. Really rang true. The acting was excellent!

The King's Speech was outstanding.

I enjoyed reading, and seeing the movie "The Help"
Like Quilty-Louise, I enjoy reading the Stephanie Plum book series by Janet Evanovich. Stephanie's Grandmom Mazur is a hoot.
