Those pics with George and very highly prized in my house!

(That same theater had a showing of The Goonies in a cave outside Austin with Corey Feldman in attendance. I went to that one!)
Y'all are singing my tune here! I agree 28 weeks later was not nearly as good as 28 days later, although the whole thing with his wife was very wrenching the rest just seemed to lack the same depth of characters as the first.
I would have given anything to be there to meet George!!! And I loved how they put the two main characters from Shawn of the Dead into Land of the Dead for a cameo as zombies... cool stuff!

hatred is a terrible thing to pass on to a new generation, but sometimes you have to know about the injustices suffered by those that came before you to know who you are and where you're going. and why.

In the middle of Braveheart for the umpteenth time, still to me one of the best movies ever made.

That is one of my favorites! When it first came out in the theaters I saw it 3 times in one week (I ended up taking others to see it).

I finally saw "The Holiday" tonight. Loved it!

The Cleaner. Not something that I'd pay to see though.

I've been wondering about those movies. They look so funny to me but I am still unsure whether I should netflix them.

Just watched The Virgin Suicides for the first time and loved it. A very interesting portrait of the "tourture" of being a teenager. Sad, though.
