    Ok so i went and saw Shutter Island yesterday...it started out (for the first hour!) really slow. Turned out to be a pretty good movie. i'd give it a 7/10 rating.

    Well recently I am not sure, but all time favorites would have to be.. Alice in Wonderland, Dogma, Fast and Furious (1st and last), and Happy Gilmore....

    Now Shutter Island I heard in an interview with DiCaprio that it was an intense film to make.. in regards to dealing with insane asylums and all. He said he personally feels this was one of the most mentally challenging films to date he has made.So you recommend seeing it I am assuming?

    That's a tough one. It's changed over time so there are fond memories of having favorites. The first one was probably Omega Man and I'd catch it each year when it showed up on TV back when there were only 3 major networks to choose from. Favorites to me are ones you can watch over and over. The most recent one would be Avatar which we saw in the theater twice. The second time being a day trip to NYC to see it on the huge Imax screen in Lincoln Sq.

    To twist the thread a bit I'd say the three most watched movies in our house, since the kids stopped watching Disney movies would be the following:

    Shrek
    Overboard
    Chicago

    Insane asylums make me think of another film, that has seen the inside of our DVD player quite a few times, that we enjoyed: Conspiracy Theory.

    Forest Gump and Shawshank are a couple others that have gotten a lot of good mileage here. The Stand is another good one.

    I guess I'll have to add Serenity to the list. Managed to get in to see that a few days before it was officially released via a press pass thing and brought my son. To get in you just needed to have a blog so we created one real quick-like:)
    We both got free shirts too. 4 days later we paid and saw it again.

    I wold like to add all 2 of the movies that christim just put on his list. Shawshank Redemption was one I was trying to think of and I have the full DVD of The Stand. Even though it was made for television, great movie.
