    Honestly, the biggest reason I enjoyed it is because it didn't try too hard to be funny. Channing Tatum seems to have fun with his character, and Jonah Hill is maturing well as a comedic actor. Even Ice Cube was extremely fun to watch, purposely acting slightly over-the-top.

    That sounds great! I'm looking forward to it...and I like Ice Cube too.

    Another music-related movie I should recommend is Pearl Jam: Twenty, especially if you liked the band growing up. While I've always been more of an Alice in Chains gal myself, I liked Pearl Jam pretty well, and was fortunate enough to get to see them in their heyday. PJ 20 came out last year and was done by Cameron Crowe, who brought you Almost Famous, Jerry Maguire, Say Anything, and the ever-classic Fast Times at Ridgemont High. (p.s. I LOVE Sean Penn, and he is mad funny in that movie as Jeff Spicolli. The OP should check out Fast Times if s/he hasn't yet...it's THE classic "high-school movie" movie. )

    One caveat: This movie could be frustrating to watch at certain points if you're a Republican or especially, a George W. Bush supporter, as Eddie Vedder makes his feelings on Bush known at one point...let's just say he was "very displeased." I know it sucks when you like a group and they bash your beliefs, so I just wanted to give fair warning. I pledge no allegiance to any party, so Eddie wading into politics bummed me out a bit, too.

    Reviving a thread I made, I saw Jiro Dreams of Sushi on Sunday about someone who spent their life (and still do) make sushi in Japan.

    That actually sounds like an interesting movie. Is it out in theaters? Available on Netflix?

    Somebody should link the clip to Eric Cartman referring to independent films as "black-and-white hippie movies--they're all about gay cowboys eating pudding!"

    Ah, I see. We have one of those near me. I will have to check it out.

    Just bought tickets on Fandango to go see Avengers tomorrow with some coworkers. I've heard amazing things about this film, so I hope I'm not disappointed!

    I love films, but I'm by no means against watching a big budget popcorn flick.

    What I've seen so far was pretty good. Sam Elliott robbed the bank and killed a couple of guys. So the posse hunts him down, hogties him, and literally drags him back to town! But there's ol Sam Elliott, smiling with them big shiny teeth! Whe I stopped watching, he was about to start laying it on thick with Vera Miles. That should be fun!

    I LOVE Sam Elliot. Really, I have an unnatural fascination with him.

    Saw Twenty recently, too. Made me very nostalgic for my early teen years, and it was well done, at least in my opinion.

    I did see the Avengers film last night and I liked it. I'm more of a DC fan than Marvel, but it was a well-written film.

    I also saw The Avengers last night, and I thought it was a very brilliantly well-done superhero film. All the principal leads were given equal screen time, and the story was fleshed out and had a purpose. It deserves the accolades its getting. It's not Oscar Best Picture worthy, but its still worth eating popcorn for.

    Telemachus, I'll admit it was fun. Just wish there was a live-action Justice League movie, oh well there's always the animated ones which are actually pretty good.

    I just watched "Tiny Furniture" on Netflix Instant.

    Really poignant QLC movie, about a girl that moves home after college and suffers what we all do...well written, Lena Dunham wrote and stars in it.

    Lena Dunham is the chick in the new HBO series GIRLS (I also enjoy this) on Demand, if any of you have it.....I love living at home....the luxury of extended cable.

    I'm obsessed with Girls! I want to see Tiny Furniture... I'm so impressed with Lena Dunham and everything she's accomplished at such a young age.
