At the movies

I had the chance over the holiday to catch up on some movies that I had in my cue for awhile. On the list of viewed were Australia, The Ides of March, The American, The Beaver, Crazy Stupid Love, and of course, a few classic Christmas movies as well.

All in the list above were actually pretty good. I really enjoyed the two Clooney films (The American, The Ides of March), though I tend to enjoy political movies as well as spy thrillers, so they were both right up my alley.

Any time I see a movie that looks interesting or funny, I just throw it on a running list I have, and when it becomes available, it gets added to the collection for viewing. I’ve got a pretty good list going still of unwatched – including:

– The Debt
– The Help
– Bridesmaids
– Cars 2
– Horrible Bosses
– Hotel Rwanda
– Our Idiot Brother

and a couple of documentaries, thanks in no small part to my high school economics-teaching friend Tim Black:
– I.O.U.S.A.
– Maxed Out
– The One Percent
– Sons of Perdition

The question here is, what should I be watching? What’s the last movie that rocked your world?

What movies should be in my cue?

  1. You NEED to watch The King’s Speech. I’m telling you, you’ll at least love the cinemetography. (Obviously I can’t spell that word.)

    And I would argue that you should read The Help first, because I’m pro-read-the-book-first. A coworker gave it to me over Christmas and I can pass it on to you when I’m done if you want.
