Yeah pretty good for a free movie, because people video taping themselves is way more interesting than any 'expert' could make, in my opinion =)

I really enjoyed Prometheus. Bought the bluray.
Pulled and kneaded like salt water taffy.

Interconnecting peoploids, like tinker toy ferris wheels, rotating counterclockwise for eternity.

Yeah. I liked that movie. I predict the guy who played the android will get a supporting actor academy nomination.

I watched "No Such Thing". I really liked it. Rotten Tomatoes didn't care for it, but I would recommend it.

WOW>

Samsara is out on BluRay.

Those who have seen Baraka may have an idea of what this movie is like.

It's artsy, has no words, but is very thought provoking.

It's a deep movie, I honestly can only handle it in portions because my mind wanders...

Not for everyone either, but for those who like an abstract topic and like to see a different perspective, I recommend it!

Searching for Sugarman
http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/searchi ... sugar_man/

A good documentary about a generally unknown artist from Detroit area Michigan, my hometown.

But he was huge in S. Africa and as big as Elvis some say.

He didn't ever know about his fame there, until someone finally tracked down his daughter after a lot of dead ends and detective work.

The artist that many in South Africa had heard was deceased, was finally re-united with his long lost fans.

Sort of a slow film, but interesting especially if you like music documentaries.

Another great music documentary I've seen recently was Marley
http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/marley/

both not for every viewer and I had to watch in portions as the documentary can be dry at times.

Yes, Sin Nombre was a very good film.

Gritting and shocking at times, but real.

Putting this on my list of movies to watch.

Everyone who hasn't should go see The Hobbit. The Riddles in the Dark scene is just amazing.
