Love, Actually - best movie I've seen recently.
Good point; I should've thought about that. Does anybody know if this has been released on DVD, yet?

Not yet - I think it's still in some theaters. Hasn't even hit the dollar theaters yet here.

Its playing at the theatre in our dorms this week. I'm definately going to see it again. I went to see it over thanksgiving weekend with my girlfriend, we both liked it a lot. I was suprised - wasn't expecting a movie of such high caliber. That Turkish? girl (the one who was a housekeeper to the writer) was amazingly good looking.

Not even in the dollar cinemas?. Wow, I swear, my hometown got rid of the one it has. And now look at me... can't even keep up with movies, haha. Thanks - I'll have to find out when it does go to DVD.

Wow. Yeah, she really was.

Carlito's Way
Donnie Brasco


Ghost in the Shell
Awesome, Carlito's Way and Donnie Brasco are both great movies.

My best friend is really into some of the (better) anime movies and series'. He gave a copy of Ghost in the Shell but I have yet to watch it. He's also really into Cowboy Beebop. Ever see any of those? I have seen one or two (he also gave me the entire series on CD) and they were pretty decent.

Adaptation

I can't believe I didn't think of this earlier -- such a great movie.

I rented this with my girlfriend and watched it with her family. My GF and her family have no open-mindedness at all when it comes to anything creative - movies included. They hated it and we turned it off after 15 mins. Same with About Schmidt. We watched that for 30 mins and turned it off. I would have liked to watch both those straight through.

Never seen About Schmidt... but I must tell you to rent Adaptation again.. I can see why someone would want to turn it off, because it isn't a happy, cheerful type of film. Seriously, though, you should go rent it again. It's more than worth it.

Just realizing no one mentioned Chicago. I was lucky enough to see it on Broadway about two years ago, and the movie definitely lived up to the splendor of the theatrical production.
