So far my list includes; Immortals, Moneyball, Dream House, and Contagion. I was never that keen on the original Footloose so I doubt I will watch the remake. But I did love the album however. :)

Edgar - Leornado as Edgar and Armie as his secret lover :hat1:

Immortals - shirtless Cavill and Lutz and various Greek Gods. I hope it's good.

I guess I am only looking forward to Straw Dogs. That one I am REALLY looking forward to but none of the rest stick out to me.

My bf wants to see Contagion and I probably will but it looks like so many similar movies that have come before it.

Edgar - Leornado as Edgar and Armie as his secret lover :hat1:

Immortals - shirtless Cavill and Lutz and various Greek Gods. I hope it's good.

I picked those two as well (*surprise, surprise* ;) )!

Speaking of sexiness-in-sandals, the better-half and I are currently tanked on Bloody Mary's and will be watching "The Eagle" with Channing Tatum ( :grope: ) in a few minutes!

And my my my, how Jamie Bell has grown! :D

By the way, you can watch Red State right now on VOD. This includes through Apple TV so I assume you can get it on iTunes? It is $9.99 for the rental but I LOVE this idea of putting things on VOD right away. $10 is a steep rental but way cheaper than taking everyone to the movie at $10 a piece. I would totally get it if my bf wasn't scared of it, haha

I'm looking forward to Breaking Dawn and Dream House. The latter seems interesting.

09-05-2011, 07:18 PM
Thanks for all those vids Peter! I have not been able to watch them all just yet but you can bet I will give it my best boy scout try! hehehehe

Reviews for A Good Old-Fashioned Orgy have been mixed - Philadelphia Weekly downright hates it, and really comes down on Jason Sudeikis.

Spent a lazy day on the couch watching TCM's Moguls & Movie Stars. Fascinating.

09-06-2011, 09:15 PM
I borrowed two movie from the vid store yesterday; Beneath Hill 60 and Inside Hannah's Suitcase. Both sound good but I have not been able to watch them yet.

I don't know when it opens for sure but I'm a Gary Oldman fan and am looking forward to seeing him as one of my favorite characters (George Smiley) in "Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy." It looks like an exceptional cast for this one.

After I got home from the movies to see The Help, I watched The Last Voyage (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0054016/) and Imaginary Witness: Hollywood and the Holocaust (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0379158/), both downloaded on my computer.
