    Every forum needs one. This is the official movies thread.

    Anyone seen anything good lately?

    I caught Drive a couple of days ago. Pretty intense, but done by the same director who did Valhalla Rising, another movie I really liked.

    I watch everything at home. With a four year old and a new one on the way actually going to the theaters is a hard thing to do.

    I saw Lord of the Rings at home too. If they do a re-release I would go check it out in theaters.

    I saw where they were doing a Spiderman 4 (I think it said 4) ... and no I'm not a fan. ;)

    I'm thinking they need some new folks out there in movie making land with some "new" ideals!

    It's a new Spiderman. I wasn't a fan of the older ones.

    How was it?

    I too watch a ton of documentaries.

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1787791/ - Resurrect the Dead: The Mystery of the Toynbee Tiles

    This was interesting, but I still need to finish it.

    The Avengers was an awesome movie.... if you like Marvel then I would recommend Captain America, Thor and the Iron Man movies.

    Also the Hunger Games was a really good movie and the books (its a triology) are a brilliant read... I couldn't put them down :)

    we watch everything at home now too especially since I bought my hubby a top of the line 65 inch Panasonic 3D TV for his birthday so now we're collecting 3D movies and I must say Avatar in 3D is awesome!!!

    You like the at home 3d? Any complaints? I've looked at a couple of different models in store and was never happy with what I saw. It was fun, but when I moved it went back to 2d.

    love it! I bought him the Panasonic VIERA 65" Class VT50 Series Full HD 3D Plasma HDTV
    we also tried other brands at the stores and didn't like them. Plasma makes a huge difference the LED 3D tv's are aweful.
    just not the same effect. the Panasonic is awesome and is REAL 3D people come watch movies with us and its fun to watch them dodge objects
    that look like their coming right at them so far everyone who has been to my house to watch movies has been amazed. with our setup it doesn't matter where you move it looks the same and doesn't go in and out. my great room is 25ft x 25ft and at that distance the 3D is perfect. the only
    down side it the 65inch is very heavy...oh and there a lil expensive.
