Man lucky sons! Hot Fuzz was funny, but yes Shawn of the Dead was way better. I would definitely Netflix Shawn of the Dead, and if it is a hit with you Corazon then go ahead and Netflix Hot fuzz.
You can't go wrong with Shawn of the Dead if you like Zombie movies IMHO...

Just watched the documentary, "Paper Clips." If you haven't had the chance to see it, grab a box of tissues and see it. For a second, at the end, when they are dumping the millions of paper clips into buckets, they just look like paper clips. But when you stop to remember that each of the clips stood for one person who was killed, and there are so many in a bucket that you can't even guess the amount--well, just have the tissue ready. I knew what it was about before I watched it, but I didn't realize that they had researched and found out that paper clips actually had a special meaning during the Holocaust. One of the things that was so neat is that most of the people who sent paper clips didn't just send them alone. They sent very touching letters explaining why the project meant so much to them. Also the song Alison Krauss sings throughout the movie is so haunting and beautiful.

Thanks Barbara L. I was moved by your post and went to the website for "Paperclips". I am going to watch that one for sure. Even the trailer had me on the edge of tears.

James didn't want to see it, but we both really liked it.

Hot Fuzz and the full Grindhouse presentation... I liked Planet Terror better the second time around and I really liked Death Proof.

apocalypto.

it was ok. not worth paying for, though.

i happened to like most of it, having been interested in the maya since i hiked to chichen itza many years ago. but on different levels, the guy outrunning a jaguar and the fact that an eclipse seemed to surprise them were stupid.

he wouldn't have gotten 50 feet from the cat, and mayans were expert astronomers, argueably the best that ever been. i'm sure they'd have known about a solar eclipse, considering the complexity of the long count calendar.

Were you able to keep all the subplots straight? It took me a while. Tilda Swinton deserved every bit of that Oscar.

The Things We Lost in The Fire. Wow. I loved this movie. It's very powerful - Benicio Del Toro is scary good in this film. Not a happy, lighthearted movie but very thought provoking.

We are watching Oceans 13 right now. I can't even remember what happened in Oceans 12, but this one so far is not holding up to Oceans 11 either...
