I was thinking about seeing a movie and haven't been to one in a while.
Anybody seen "Old School"? It sounds like the critics don't care much for it, but it currently has a really high rating from the general public on yahoo.

Can't say I've seen it. I saw "The Hunted" recently, and thought it was just "ok". Next on my list are "Willard" and "Dreamcatcher". Oh and I'll probably go see "Bringing Down the House", not the kind of movie I would normally choose though.

nowadays movies r really MEANINGLESS DRIVEL.not providing anything but desperate attempt to make something special.go for a movie only if u need some timepass.
imagination of script-writers r so limited.they r not finding anything new and beutiful..
Dont blame writers.They are not getting any topic to write.Humen thinking is now moving towards in an equilibrium condition.They know all and how to adjust with all.so writers could'nt able teach anything to the audience.Or they dont know what to tell to the audience.so they just trying to make entertainment stuff by putting all recipe(commonly availeable) together.
WHERE'S ART??.

Have you seen Billy Elliot?
Not sure if it received much publicity in the US? It might be a bit rough following the Northern England Geordie accent, but definitely a worthwhile watch.

Ok, we're talking about rented movies as well so this is not OT I don't think. If you rent a lot of DVDs, Netflix is the cat's meow. It absolutley rocks, and it's one of those things people who use the service can't help but recommend to others. I think they have most every movie that is available on region 1, and tons of stuff you simply won't find in the rental stores (documentaries, foreign, indy, anime, etc...). Take them up on their free trial offer, you'll be hooked.
