I just watched Freedom Writers. I loved it. It was a hopeful and true story.

@PupnTaco: I wanted moves that people had recently watched, or that are good for the home theater medium.

Recent ones I have rented: Into the Wild…hard to watch at times but such a GREAT message. It was the only movie I have ever seen that actually took my breath away (and everyone’s in the theater). Once, Juno, The Waitress…all FABULOUS movies! I recently watched Frida (like a painting come to life) and Whale Rider again. If you haven’t seen any of these, I highly recommend them.

Allie's avatar

thebeadholder: Yes, Into the Wild was a great movie.
I also liked Lords of Dogtown. I thought it was going to be a dumb skateboarding movie, but it was surprisingly good. =] I’d like to say thanks to my friend, Ben, for having me watch it/watching it with me.

@ allie: Sorry if you were waiting for me. I got sidetracked (crying baby). One of my favorites is Big Fish! I LOVED Lords of Dogtown also (another one with Emile Hirsch and the late and great, Heath Ledger). Speaking of Heath…10 Things I Hate About You! Another good one to rent that I loved is Ghost World. While I am on the Emile kick, I really enjoyed Speedracer.

The Lives of Others was a pretty amazing film.

I saw The Matrix for the first time today. Really cool.

Trustinglife's avatar

Make sure to watch Matrix 2 and 3 then! And boy, if you get into it, or you’re a Matrix fan, I have to recommend The Ultimate Matrix Collection.

There is this commentary on it – by Ken Wilber and Cornel West – talking on all aspects of the film. I had seen the films many times but learned so much by listening to the commentary! Well worth it.
