Stolen from greylock
I know most of you read the HP books, and a lot of you have probably seen at least one of those movies about teachers inspiring inner city kids.

I Watched The Watchmen.

And it kicked serious ass. There were changes, yes, including the ending, but it felt like the comic. It was very well cast, and Jackie Earle Haley is Rorschach. Malin Akerman's acting was uneven in some scenes, but she physically looked like she'd jumped right out of the comic. I was happy to see both Carla Gugino and Matt Frewer had roles.

The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus
Simpsonized

Terry Gilliam directed it with a budget of approx. $20 million.
Here's a partial list of people involved: Tom Waits (Yay!), Christopher Plummer, Jude Law, Colin Farrell, Verne Troyer, and Johnny Depp. Let's not forget Heath Ledger in his final role. Some of you've posted about this in the past, while it was still being filmed and having funding issues.

And what are the odds of it going directly to DVD? Pretty good. :/

Pleasure and Paint
Simpsonized
_twilight_
Aww yeah... gonna paint my room "Silver Blaze" suede this weekend. And install a new faucet fixture. If there's time, I'll paint the bathroom and back wall of the closet, but think those'll have to wait until Monday or Tuesday. I will experience having walls that aren't white!

Also, I really enjoyed The Lady in the Water. Even the very predictible parts were compelling enough to feel like true suspense.
IMHO Ranking:
1. The Sixth Sense: knowing this had a twist made me incorrectly guess the twist because I thought it too obvious.
2. The Lady in the Water: coool.
3. Unbreakable: obvious, but terrific pacing and hard to look away.
4. The Village: *great* performances and wonderful interaction between characters, but the ending was a bit of a letdown. If I'd seen it as a stage play rather than a movie, I would've likely raved about it.
5. Signs: The first half+ was brilliant, the birthday party video alone was one of the creepiest things I've ever seen in a movie, but the execution of the ending was boring. Some people dislike the content of the ending, which I'd find an interesting philosophical puzzle in itself, but the way it was executed just... kind of sucked.
