I really liked Freedom Writers! I know that there have been a lot of flicks that had the same theme, but still I enjoyed it quite a bit. Plus Patrick Dempsey makes for some good eye candy! Even though I hated his character.

It is one of my favorites!!! So sad and so amazing! Ain't no mountain high enough...

I haven't seen Freedom Writers but everytime I saw a preview for it that Patrick Dempsey was in, I got all giddy. I would see it just for the eye candy he gives  Cool

Anyone going to see The Nightmare Before Christmas in 3D? I might be going on Friday. It should be really amazing! I love that movie, brings back some childhood memories.

I'd love to see it in 3D, but it's not out here, I'm sure there's been a couple of pages earlier about just how mmuch I love  Tim Burton films, and Nightmare Before Christmas is proabably my facvurite! And everone says I look kinda like Sally, when my hair was long, I',m not sure if that's a good thing, or a bad thing!

Saw that last year at Downtown Disney on Halloween.  I think we might go see it a few days before Halloween this year.  All of the 3D stuff is very subtle so you might not see a marked difference between the original and this one.

The kids had a sleep over at their cousins the other night and so hubby and I decided to have a date night.  But then we decided we couldn't be bothered actually going out so we got takeout and some dvds. 

We saw Definately Maybe which I loved.  It was such a well told story for the genre that it is and the little girl that played the daughter was so fantastic.

We also watched Jumper.  It was good - nothing to rave about, but enjoyable enough.  It would have been better if it was about 20-30 minutes longer and they had taken the time to flesh out some of the main characters.  It didn't really give me enough to get invested in them.

But my absolute favourite of the selection we got was Into the Wild.  Has anybody seen this?  Based on a true story with the screenplay and direction by Sean Penn.  It was brilliant.  Such a wonderful story that really had you experiencing the full range of human emotion.  And so brilliantly acted in especially by Emile Hirsch and Catherine Keener - they were my two favourite characters of the fantastic ensemble cast.  And even more fantastic is that this is based on somebody's real life experience.  Such an inspriation and uplifting movie and one that I will definately be buying to add to my collection.  And we've owned the soundtrack to it for a while now anyway, but now when I listen to it ...  I get to experience those feeling all over again.  Highly recommend this film.

Caryn ~ Date night in sounded pretty nice. 

I have been wanting to see 'Definately Maybe' since I first saw previews for it, but I haven't seen it yet.  I really like Abigail Breslin, the little girl in it.  I am more impressed with her then with Dakota Fanning.  She is really talented and yet still just a young girl.  I have seen her in several movies and TV shows.  I like to watch the beginning of 'Little Miss Sunshine' just to see the part where she screams then the end to watch her do her dance for the talent part of the contest. So funny.   I have seen 'Signs', 'Raising Helen' and 'No Reservations' several times now.  She was really good in 'Nim's Island' with Jodie Foster, too.

I agree with you about 'Jumper'  It was a decent movie, but it could have been better if it was a bit longer.  It was too rushed.  Just as you were getting into a character or scene they go into some thing else.  I felt that way about 'Evan Almighty', too.  They both could have been much better if given to time to play the scenes out in more depth.

I have not seen anything about 'Into the Wild', but went into IMDb before posting here and it does really sound good and it has a lot of great actors in it.  I am going to have to watch it.  Thanks for bringing it to my attention.

Hey Cheri.  Wow I didn't realise that Abigail was in so many movies already.  I'm a big Dakota fan, but I agree, I think Abigail is brilliant and would probably beat her out in my book also.  And I've even seen all those movies you mentioned except for Little Miss Sunshine and Nim's Island - not realising that it was her in each of them.  Now I'll have to re-watch them with re-newed interest.

Still haven't seen Evan Almighty - just can't seem to get in the right moood for it, even with Lauren in it.  I think too much of what I've read about it is not praising enough for me to move it to the top of my very long list of movies to see.  We are big entertainment freaks my hubby and I.  We love our movies, music and tv and our kids, god love 'em, have kind of cramped our style time wise to see or experience all that we want to.  So the list just gets longer and longer.

And seriously, do check out Into the Wild.  I cannot speak highly enough of this movie.  I was just listening to the soundtrack in the car and got goosebumps and tears with certain tracks and my memory recall of the corresponding moments in the movie.  And I must say that all the cast acted brilliantly, but I singled out Emile and Catherine because they were my major standouts.  Kristen Stewart was also brilliant, though hers was a small part.

Caryn ~ You should check out Abigail's filmology at IMDb and see all of the movies and tv shows that she has been in.  You will really be amazed.  You should really watch Little Miss Sunshine.  It is just a small indie movie, but I think that it is really good and Abigail is really good in it.  A little bit of trivia: A few months ago when I was watching it again, it dawned on me that three of Lauren Graham's movie husbands were in it.  Steve Carell in Evan Almighty, Greg Kinnear in the upcoming Flash of Genius and Bryan Cranston in Seeing Other People.  Thought that was pretty funny.  Could have been a sticky moment if it had been real Grin

Was in Best Buy today with my daughter and bought Definitely, Maybe.  Was going to watch it tonight but since it is actually 3:48am, I think that I had better get to bed instead.  I forgot about looking for In The Wild until after we had left the store.  I had asked Erin, my daughter, if she had heard of it and she said only because she knows of the book.  She works at a book store and said that the book is a big seller.  I will have to go back and get the movie and pick up the soundtrack, too. 

You really should watch Evan Almighty.  No, it isn't the best movie in the world but it is far from the worst.  And it does have Lauren in it and it is a more serious part for her.  Like I had said, if given more time it would have been better but I still think that it was a good movie.  I would and do watch anything I can find with Lauren Graham in it.  I think that she is really good.  I think that her talents are wasted on some of the things that she does and hope that she will be offered and/or take on bigger and better things. 

Well, really gotta go.  Thank you for the movie choices.  If you come across other good ones, let us know. 

Oh, one more thing.  Have you watched The Last Mimzy ?  It is a really cute movie and the little girl in it reminds me a lot of Abigail Breslin.  Abigail has a brother that has been in a lot of movies.  I can't think of his first name, but he was in The Santa Clause movies with Tim Allen, and Disney's The Kid with Bruce Willis just to name a few. 

Abigail's brother's name is Spencer and they both were in 'Raising Helen" together Kate Hudson.

Caryn ~ I saw Into the Wild today and you are so right about it.  It is a really great, moving story.  This movie is one that really pulled me in and I had to just sit and watch the whole thing without doing anything else.  I love Catherine Keener in just about everything that she has done.  Emile Hirsh was fabulous in it and he looks so much like the real Chris.  When they showed the pic of the real Chris, it took me a few seconds to realize that it wasn't Emile.  I liked Hal Holbrook and the person that he played.   I highly recommend this movie as well.  The music in it is really good, too.  I am going to go buy both the movie and the soundtrack this weekend.  Thank you for mentioning this movie to us.  It is great.
