    If you want an amazing tear-jerker, and a surprisingly good movie, and ultimately uplifting feeling, don't miss "AUGUST RUSH"...also one of my favorite romantic comedies of last year was "DAN IN REAL LIFE", it's not a silly comedy like many Steve Carrell films, but it's still a lot of fun and really sweet -- I loved it!

    Wall-E http://disney.go.com/disneypictures/wall-e/ is a great date flick. It's just too cute.

    Just watched the HBO Miniseries "John Adams." It was amazing. A great, honest look at the beginnings of our country. It actually made me feel proud to be an American (which takes a lot these days) but also made me feel sad that we have moved so far away the ideals of those men and women.

    gingerboy25, the world has changed a great deal since the late eighteenth century. America is still the oldest revolutionary state on the planet though.

    I saw "Get Smart" the other day and enjoyed it. Younger couples, much younger than I, and could not have seen the television series were laughing out loud so I think it appeals to most age groups. You will find it funnier I think being old and seen the original series. They use the old lines like; "Sorry about that chief", and "missed it by that much", and the old suit and car and the shoe phone. The cone of silence is high tech now.

    If you like film noir (and I love it), see "Before the Devil Knows You're Dead", with Philip Seymour Hoffman, Albert Finney, Marisa Tomei and Ethan Hawke. REALLY good.

    I just saw a really fun, gripping French mystery called "Tell No One." It's been a while since I've been so on edge (in a good way) during a movie.

    Hey, I used to watch Get Smart as a kid. I'm so happy that they made into a film since DVDs will probably be a no go here.

    If you want a great film, watch Momento.

    Beautiful Thing is a really great romantic, gay love story. It was a fantastic movie.

    Crash is an amazing movie and for a great documentary you should watch Supersize Me.

    I really liked two gay detective movies I recently saw. One was called The Third Man. The other (same series) was during an LGBT Film Festival in San Francisco and had Margot Kidder.
