    I'm not picky. I went to Blockbuster yesterday for about 1/2 and left with nothing. I always prefer to get recommendations from others for anything they found to be worth watching.

    Milk. Still in limited release, but opening wider soon. It's a must see.

    I remember this thread and will look through it. Not just looking for gay-themed movies, though.

    Funny Games. The new U.S. version is filmed exactly the same was as the original German version, except with different actors.

    Being a film major it wires down to what genre you are interested in. Horror, Sci-Fi, Drama, Romance, Comedy, Action? Then just keep an open mind to whatever people recommend or what you might come across on a daily run. Always watch as many movies as you can because it changes our viewpoints on everything. Most importantly, do not listen to movie critics. They are closed minded stuck up individuals that crave just to be heard.

    Movies out right now

    I would say Twilight is an alright movie. Somewhat of a chick flick, but worth watching I guess.

    A lot of good movies coming out but I don't know which are the pick of the litter. I guess you can say cinema isn't like it was before.

    Horror comedy with slightly disturbing elements:


    Gross-out horror by Peter Jackson with fairly disturbing elements (both):

    I'd agree to that with regard to Harry Knowles, but Roger Ebert?
    Movie critics and criticism can be good as long the critics are up-front about their preferences and able to adequately describe what they like / don't like about a particular fillm AND the would-be movie goer or film watcher understands that the critic is a person with a potentially different perspective from him- / herself on a given film.

    Something appropriate for this time of the year, without being a saccharine Christmas movie, is "Millions". The writer/director of "Slumdog Millionaire" did "Millions", and it's so f'ing cute, funny, and heartwarming.

    Sounds like you're looking for stuff that's on DVD. Here are some personal favorite movies. Some of them turn up on TCM and other channels regularly, so you may not feel like renting them. Most of them are considered classics. Don't know if that's what you're looking for. Many of these are in black and white, if that bothers you.

    The Apartment (Romantic comedy-drama with Jack Lemmon and Shirley MacLaine, from 1960 or so.).

    Black Narcissus (Intense drama about a bunch of nuns in the Himalayas. Lots of sexual hysteria. This one's in Technicolor and it's stunning to watch.)

    The Thief of Baghdad (There are several versions of this. Get the 1940 one, in beautiful Technicolor. One of the great movie adventures, still incredibly entertaining. Special effects are primitive but great for their time.)

    It's a Gift (With W.C. Fields. One of the funniest movies ever. Black and white from the 1930s. This is in the W.C. Fields Comedy Collection. Another especially great Fields movie is The Man on the Flying Trapeze. That one's in volume 2 of the Fields collection.)

    Spartacus (If you've never seen the great 1960 film directed by Kubrick, with Kirk Douglas and an amazing cast, you should. Long but never dull and very powerful. And lots of shirtless, sweaty men, some of whom are definitely hot.)

    The Night of the Iguana (Currently my favorite movie. Tennessee Williams drama about coping with despair, beautifully filmed by John Huston in black and white. Shot in Puerto Vallarta, which became a popular tourist destination after this movie came out.)

    Smile (Fabulous 1970s comedy about a teenage girl beauty pageant. Very funny and also very touching.)

    Boys in the Band (If you've never seen this, you should. Just released on DVD.)

    The Lady Eve (Classic 1930s romantic comedy. One of the best ever.)
