After the previous two, I went ahead and watched Jay And Silent Bob Strike Back. Total goofiness at its best. I'm a little biased towards Kevin Smith's works...what can I say though, I'm a guy.

Kubrick...yeah. I forgot about Full Metal Jacket, that was a good one Boomer.

I only remember it for a couple reasons. One is as a surveyor several years ago we adopted a line out of the movie for all of the land surveyor work we do, using total station theodilites. We were constantly reminding each other on the radio...."Shoot ME" which was a little wierd unless you understand we were using equipment designed to shoot a prism pole for angle and distance. The other was when my eldest daughter was about 10, she snuck up behind my chair while I was watching the DVD, and of course the one scene she saw scarred her for life!

Truly, Kubrick was a genius. But Eyes Wide Shut was not his best. Methinks he would never have released it the way it was...didn't he die before the final edit?

The Shining blew my 13 year old mind. Great if you like suspenseful horror with a great story line.
I liked Sixth Sense as well as long as we're on paranormal themes.
Whether you're religious or not I highly recommend The Passion of the Christ. Totally took me off guard; different than what I had expected.

Well, we watched The Help on Saturday night. Katie loved it, too
Kubrick.... not a huge fan. I mean, I don't dislike him but I don't go out of my way to watch his films. The Shining was terrific! Not exactly what Uncle Stevie wrote but still, fantastic. Scared me silly - still does.
The Sixth Sense was another great horror film. It was the last movie that Mom and I went to see together. She was up here visiting the summer after Grandma (her Mom) died. We did okay until that scene in the car where the little boy tells his Mom about Grandma being proud of her... oh crap... I can't even think about it without tearing up. We held hands and cried.
Hey 2Beers, I'm working on the cardio now.

My daughter rented "Midnight in Paris"
It was pretty cool though I didn't watch the whole thing.
