    What looks good right now? I'm thinking True Grit and Black Swan (same director as The Wrestler)

    You just named my two most anticipated films of the year. Aronofsky and the Coen Bros. are my favorite directors. Black Swan was PHENOMENAL...one of those movies where after it was over I kinda sat there and was a little disappointed, and over the next few days couldn't stop thinking about it and had to go see it again, and it was amazing the second time.

    True Grit I've heard nothing but good things about, and am DYING to see...outside of those two I can't think of any movies I'm dying to see. I'll probably get around to seeing The Fighter eventually

    Aronofsky is a fucking bad ass. Don't get me wrong, Coens are too, but Aronofsky's films have progressed each time imo. I thought The Wrestler was perfect.

    I'm one of the few that absolutely adores The Fountain. My favorite movie of all time, in fact. Try watching that movie on acid and not having it change your life lol. Requiem is probably my second favorite of his, not sure yet how Black Swan will fit in with Pi and The Wrestler, but they're all amazing.

    Fountain - 10
    Requiem - 9.5
    Wrestler - 9.2
    Black Swan - 9.0 (but will change)
    Pi - 8.5

    True Grit is a good movie. Old school John Wayne movie remake.

    I think we're on different pages as far as movies go. I haven't seen any of those and have no desire to. I don't want a movie that is going to try and make me think. When I wanna watch a movie, I want to relax and turn my brain off...

    See I'm kind of like you...90% of the time I watch retarded comedies because I just wanna laugh...but there are certain directors that just "get you" ya know? When I watch Aronofsky's movies, I forget about everything else, and just dive right into the story.

    Not just talking comedies...Last night I watched The Expendables. Good movie if you take it for what it is...Great action with nothing really resembling a plot line. Also love pretty much any football movie i.e. Friday Night Lights, Any Given Sunday, Rudy, The Program...etc.

    And no I never saw The Wrestler

    See I can't do that...If I'm not watching a comedy, I don't wanna laugh or find myself amused unless it's intentional. Movies like the Expendables are just painful to me

    Harold and Maude...classic, if you havent seen it, rent it now!

    I dont get out much to the theater with the 2 kids running my life. I usually have to wait for DVD but Black Swan and True Grit are on my list. Last movie I saw was Shutter Island and it was OK.

    What are these "books" you guys speak of? Na seriously I've been trying to get back into reading. I need a GOOD book that I can pick up over break that pulls me in and I can't put it down until I finish. Those types of books are the only ones I ever seem to finish. Any ideas?

    I agree, but i live in California where they frown upon that sort of thing. Your kid scrapes his knee and his/her teachers are calling CPS!
