    I'm moving soon and I'm going to have a lapse in my cable. Anybody have any good movies they'd recommend. I'll won't have it for about a week. The longer the list the better.

    I second Brazil

    If you can find it check out "A ride with George Hincappie" It's a documentary and interview with him while he's on a training ride.

    Brazil is great. If you not going to have Cable does that mean no internet?

    How about a Coen brothers marathon?

    My favorites are Raising Arizona, Fargo, The Big Lebowski, O Brother Where Art Thou, No Country for Old Men, and Burn After Reading.

    The Big Lebowski is my favorite with O Brother and Raising Arizona tied for a close second.

    I saw Old Country for Old Men over the weekend. A bit late, but just as pleased as I would be had I saw it when everyone else did. It was awesome.

    Sherlock Holmes was good.

    Anyone have any new suggestions?

    I'm bored.

    Don't have lot of time at the moment to get into a description right now, but few I've seen lately that are worth a watch:

    The Debt
    Super 8
    Real Steal
    Red Tail
    Thor
    Cowboys & Aliens (pretty much sux, considering the caliber of actors, but you decide)
    Warrior
    Fast Five
    Captain America
    Four Brothers
    The Professional (..always a goodie)

    Check out the French-Canadian bicycle movie "Two Seconds"(1998). Really GREAT!

    Anybody seen Wrath of the Titans yet? What did you think? Is it decent, even if it's just from a "check out the special effects" standpoint?

    It's on my "soon to see" list. Anything with Ralph Fiennes has gotta have a touch of the ma-cob.

    Did just see "Immortals". Eh....twas ok. No character developement, no real story behind it, acting was on the sucky side, special effects were pretty good. Thank Gawd I got a decent home-theater set up. Nowhere near the depth of "The 300" (who produced both movies). Probly could call it a fairly good, Saturday afternoon snooze movie.

    John Carter & Underworld-Awakening (Kate Beckinsale is back in this one) are next on my list.
