The Social Network - 8/10, honestly. Remarkably fast-paced, too. It also gave a sense of the difference in scale between a website geared for hundreds of colleges and a site with over 500,000,000 members worldwide.

Who Killed the Electric Car? 10/10, though it was depressing seeing what is obvious. Greed killed it, again and again. Thanks for nothin' GM & big oil!...doosh bags.

I loved Eternal Sunshine too!

Watched Faster last night with 'The Rock' & Billy Bob Thornton. Eh. It had some good parts but overall fizzled. 4/10

I don't know if I could watch THAT "Faster", loved this one, though. I give it an 11/10

I recently saw "Fair Game", the story of the outing of CIA undercover agent Valerie Plame as revenge by Vice President Dick Cheney's staff. This movie shows what evil leaders we lived under during the Bush years, it's disgusting, but a good film, everyone needs to see this. 9/10

i wish i had nostalgic feelings for these exclusive, waterboarding, shadow government, patriot act, with us or against us, never let the fax get in the way of a good invasion, roll us back 3 decades in terms of alternative energy funding/commitment/sources et al years but i don't. i'm sure it does a great job of reminding us exactly what went down during those 8 years and how we squandered what little credibility and sympathy we had after 9/11. unfortunately, many of us haven't forgotten how precisely history repeats itself. funny how that works...if in doubt-declare war. ouch! long fall off the soapbox...

Airplane! A classic - 9/10 based on sheer quotability, alone. "Surely, you can't be serious." "I am serious. And don't call me Shirley."

Followed up with..

Airplane II Still a quotable classic, but only 8/10 as it was not quite as good as the original (which happens with most sequels). "Oh, cut the bleeding heart crap will ya? We've all got our switches, lights, and knobs to deal with, Striker."

I agree, I thought it was really good. I hope it catches more people's attention as time goes on.

Welcome! Glad you enjoyed. It really is a great movie. Nearly everyone I've recommended it to has loved it.

Same here. Even though it's been out awhile a lot of my friends haven't even heard of it.

I watched Cyrus last night and The American. Both of them were extreme let downs. 2/10 Cyrus and 3/10 for The American.

Aaah! Zombies!!

5/10 for what it is, a low-budget Z-flick, it takes a clever and humorous slant. A story told from the zombies' perspective.

Paranormal Activity 2 - 2/10 had some scare factor

The Takers - 3/10 Some interesting shoot 'em out scenes. Otherwise way overdone movie

Caught Tender Mercies yesterday afternoon while surfing channels - pulled me right in 9/10

Robert Duvall has to be one of the finest actors

I Am Number 4.... apparently named after me - the fourth and last person to buy a ticket for the showing I saw.

1/10. Not even worth a Netflix rental. Unless you are a 12 year old girl.

Drugstore Cowboy (1989)

9/10 - this adult is a sucker for a feel-good story...with poochies
If I'd get a third dog, he might just have to be named Dug.

AAAAH, Zombies: 8/10.

It's so bad it's good. Imagine a Zombie movie from the point of view of the Zombies. It's on Netflix.

EDIT: I see I'm not the only one to rate this flick.
