Unconditional Love has a good mixture of drama and comedy and goofiness with unuaual characters.

We "do" dinner and a movie about 4 times over the summer, projecting movies on the garage door while eating our potluck supper.  We use closed captioning and it has helped a lot with catching some of themumbled dialogue that seems to occur in almost every movie.  We even watch through "Special Features" and "Director's Comments."  

Our other picks have been Calendar Girls, Grand Torino, Slum Dog Millionaire (no, we did not all go out and see it when it was popular!), St. Vincent, and Ever After.

We watched Arbitrage on DVD last night.  It kept us up till midnight to see in the New Year!  The storyline was good, Richard Gere played a terrific role and was nominated for a Golden Globe.  I always enjoy seeing Richard Gere and feel he brings something special to all his roles.  Susan Sarandon looks great!  And - you can get it on Redbox - what a deal!  Let us hear what you think about it after you view it.

I was in the same boat...expecting Shutter Island to be much better than it was. Bought into the premise, but after a while it was too convoluted and came to a predictable end. Mr. Scorsese missed the mark on this one.

On the other hand, am looking forward to DiCaprio's new film Inception. Another mind bender about a team of agents that infiltrate the dreams of others.

Was never a big fan of the TV show, so will probably wait for A-Team to hit netflix. Feel bad for Liam Neeson and the rash of poor films he's been in lately....Clash of the Titans, Taken, Chloe....a real waste of a talented actor. But do understand given the sudden loss of his wife.

On that note, I rewatched The Handmaid's Tale last night with Natasha Richardson. A wonderful allegorical film, on the lines of Children of Men.

And since we had this discussion in the other movie group before the transition, I still think An Education was a better film than Hurt Locker. It's warmth outshone everything on the screen last year.

I rented Inkheart a few weeks back, and the craziest thing happened...I started recognizing the backgrounds. After about a half hour realized it was filmed in Denver...my fair city...one of few movies actually shot here.

For your next rental I recommend Inkheart. This is a great fantasy movie that involves writing and rewriting a story. The viewer is given a view of life of the author(s) of the story and the effect of rewriting on the characters involved. Of course the story the author is writing come to life and each change affects the main characters. (I know this may sound lame, but believe me, Inkheart is truly a story that pick you up and keeps you up until the end of he movie

 I cannot continue reading this website since they made the changes. It takes too much time to go through the posts and they are not laid out in proper paragraphs-may times one word on a line-it is ridiculous. What is the purpose of the change if it makes it so poor?

Both are great movies.  It's Complicated was very funny and I enjoyed Julie and Julia.  I especially liked Stanley Tucci as Julia Childs husband.  I think you will enjoy both.  Neither is too lovey dovey.
