Recent Movies that I liked:

Star Wars (Episodes II, III, IV, VI) -- This wasn't recent, except for Episode III, but it's worth mentioning.
Agent Cody Banks (I & II) - Kids movie, but I still liked it.
Thunderbirds (2004) - Kids movie, but I still love it.
Hoodwinked - I didn't think the animation was bad at all.
Zathura
The Chronicles of Narnia - The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe
Pirates of the Carribean (I & II)
Little Manhattan
Everything is Illuminated

--
Trivia about The Lion, the Witch, and The Wardrobe:

Although the book was written first by C.S. Lewis, in Narnian chronology, it is the second. The first was The Magician's Nephew.

Disney will release a four-disc extended edition of TLWW in December for a limited time. It will have an extended battle scene plus some more scenes.

The Pirate movies just are some of the best entertainment !! It doesn't matter that they are over the top...just so much fun.

I also liked Ray and Walk the Line, Shrek movies, King Kong, the Batman movies (although I have my reservations about Heath Ledger playing the JOKER....Jack Nicholson is a hard act to follow) and the Superman man movies - I think the latest one was my favorite though.

I like most movies....I just go to be entertained without looking for big meaning. Probably the worst movie I ever saw was Envy.

We don't get to the movies much, Stephen. Here's two recent favorites of mine:

Eight Below - yes, I cried;

Capote - my estimation, a classic. Brilliant.

This is like one of those "get to know you" chain emails, isn't it?

I like really goofy movies that have nothing to do with reality and are loaded with sick humor so I'll keep my top choices to myself. (I'm an escapist with a warped sense of humor.) Suffice it say that my favorite flick since I was a youngster remains the original "Freaky Friday" with Jodie Foster and John Astin. For some reason that one cracks me up over and over. The only movies I actually buy are usually Disney types like The Lion King, Shrek, etc; I tend to only purchase live performance DVDs.

But I would base my list of choices on the movies I have watched repeatedly:

"To Have and Have Not" (Bogart and Bacall)
"French Kiss" (Meg Ryan and Kevin Kline)
"As Good as It Gets" (Jack Nicholson and Helen Hunt)
"The Big Chill" (huge cast)
"Anger Management" (Nicholson and Sandler)
"Meet Joe Black" (Brad Pitt and Anthony Hopkins)
"The Hanging Garden" (a Canadian indie film)

Actually I could list dozens in that category but I'll stop there.

I like mine with a side of Ace Ventura, drunk with a nicely aged Airplane and a decadent Duece Bigalow for dessert.

I liked Eight Below too. Just a little Trivia about the movie. It was based on a true story. It was based on the Japanese sled dog team, though and, in real life, only two dogs survived.
