You can always start one I'm sure everyone would jump in who loves movies.

I just looked Hachi up on Netflix and immediately put it on our list. Sounds like a good film. We'll probably get to see it some time next week. Thanks for the recommendation.

We watched Captain America last night. Only one of the "pre Avengers" films we didn't see before we saw the Avengers on it's opening day!

Captain America was good, but I found myself paying more attention in the first half at how they made Chris Evens so small than I did to the movie. The second half was great.

Pope Joan, it is a great medieval watch and stirs the imagination. Well worth the watch.

We also watched "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides" last night. Had seen it before, but I love all the Pirates movies. Gotta love Keith Richards, Johnny Depp, and those nasty mermaids!

Superman was DC Comics and the ones in The Avengers were Marvel Comics. (I'm married to a comic book nut).

For those of you who haven't seen it yet, Hachi is a wonderful movie! Have your tissues nearby! Then after you have seen the movie, look up the real story (you can find it online--I read it at Wikipedia and I think somewhere else). Both great stories!

I can't tell if you're asking this seriously or if you're being a smart alec.

Captain America is my favorite of the Avengers (at least movie wise) and as far as I've seen the only one who became a hero for purly altruistic reasons.

Most recent movie the hubby and I watched was the Disney version of Beauty and the Beast. I remember liking it at one time but watching it last night it just seemed so cheesy.
