Some people I know have seen Fahrenheit 9/11.   The only other movie I've seen by Michael Moore was "Bowling for Columbine."

I've heard that the new one is interesting...

I finally saw "Secondhand Lions"
A great movie for all ages.
"Spiderman 2" on Dad/Daughter Date.
Lots of fun.

in the midst of this summer of mediocrity, it was nice to see a couple of new movies that actually might be worth the trip out.

Maria Full of Grace-only at select theatres and in this area, only at the maple art.

Open Water-described as a chiller that will have to bear the burden of being described as "Blair Witch" meets "Jaws"

The Story of the Weeping Camel

The previews I've heard about Maria Full of Grace (on WDET) sounded really good....

I have yet to see the newest Harry Potter...

Yeah............The Village.  It was a typical M. Night Shamylan movie - filled with suspense, and leaving you in the end to wonder if you 'really' get the movie.  It was interesting though, and am glad I saw it.

Iris, this one was my favorite Harry Potter of the three.
I absolutely love Gary Oldman in it!

I have to go see The Village today before it's ruined for me.

Saw a crazy movie this past weekend:

Harold & Kumar go to White Castle. 

This movie's along the lines of "Dude Where's My Car" and other campy Schtick aimed towards college and high School students. (i.e. potty and pot head humor, slapstick, etc.)

However, some of the scenarios and "stereotypes" were so crazy, we were laughing pretty hard...

If you like Austin Powers, Scary Movie, Dude Where's My Car, etc... you'll probably find this one pretty funny..... If you don't like goofy comedy movies, then don't go-- this is definitely NOT a Shakespearean comedy (nor does it pretend to be.) 

There's a bit of serious social commentary below the surface,  but it's played in a way that you don't really think about it.... Kind of a no-brainer, grab your bucket of popcorn and head in for some silliness kind of movie.

Is it "scary"?   or "suspenseful"?

I don't like "scary" horror-type movies.  However, I will go to a suspense movie (I don't like slasher movies at all.)   I think I've seen a few of his movies, and really liked the twists in them.

The Village is PG-13.
It's not a slasher flick.
I myself really liked it.
I think some people may have been expecting more than what they got?  I dunno, but I liked it.
I'd say it's "twilight zoneish".

As for the shark movie?  NO THANKS!  I live right here by the Ocean and won't go in more than my ankles; Thank You Richard Dreyfuss!!
I'll stick to Zombies and Psycho killers!!

It sounds good!

Has anyone seen "King Arthur"?  I heard it was not as good as expected. (I'm a huge "Arthurian" movie fan--and will generally see most of those types of films... however, 1 I did NOT like was First Knight.)

Iris,

I would say it was the 'suspense' that made the movie interesting.  I would recommend seeing it, but it was very strange...I have to say.

Let me know what you think!

This looks like a can't miss for fans from this board.  Locally it is only playing at the Main Art.

"End of the Century: The Story of the Ramones"
