    Movies

    wife & I are hitting the movies tonight, here's some options - what would you recommend?

    I'm kind of a little girl about horror movies (yes, she makes fun of me). But really like the Silence of the Lambs.

    Heard good things about Zodiac. Our newspaper (St. Paul Pioneer Press) gave it 4 stars and said it was suspenseful, well-written, and surprisingly funny given the subject matter. It has a great cast and was directed by David Fincher, who also directed Seven and Fight Club, among others.

    I want to see it!

    yeah, I've heard good things, but the Zodiac killer was never captured (movie based on a true story)... is this 2 hours of suspense just to be left hanging? I had enough of that watching the tech game

    I have only seen wild hogs and ghost rider and out of those 2 would recommend wild hogs. Zodiac also looks really good.

    But the thrill may be that you are sitting by the Zodiac Killer in the theater since he was never caught! They actually think they know who it was but he died in 1992. There is still debate about that, though. DNA could soon confirm.

    Re: Movies

    They play movies at places other than my dvd player at home? That is a strange concept, I am not sure I have seen one of these places in years.

    Re: Movies

    Hannibal Rising is pretty good. It's a little slow but not boring. If you like the other ones, you'll like this one IMO.

    I hear Zodiac is very good. It is getting great reviews everywhere. I hope to see it in the next few weeks.

    PS. What did you go see?

    This is really sad, but after making the survey we ended up rescheduling the movie for later this week. Ended up watching the new family guy and doing laundry.

    I'm suprised at the votes for Reno 911 & Wild Hogs, I figured they'd be trailing the others. We've narrowed it down to Zodiac & Hannibal Rising

    Heck I'll vote for Black Snake Moan...I mean Sam Jackson being Sam Jackson and a topless Christina Ricci can't be all that bad. Can it?

    DO NOT GO SEE RENO! I love the show but the movie was a huge letdown. A couple funny parts for sure, but it was bad!
