    Let's see if we can keep one on-going thread where you come in and do a quick "You gotta see this movie" with a few reasons why, but NOT go into a big long discussion on it. That way, anyone needing a movie suggestion can just pop IN and look at some, and pop OUT. Good for people filling out their NetFlix or Blockbuster QUEUES, too.

    Thanks!

    Skip Ghost Rider. Terrible plot, lame acting, and just a dull flick all around.

    Avoid Epic Movie. Has to be the most tired film ever, even the actors seem bored and distracted.

    Do go see Undead. Great zombie flick with lots of violence and an extremely unpredictable plot.

    Reno 9/11 is very funny, even if you have not seen the TV show. You must like boobies and toilet humor though.

    This documentary was shocking, really sad and very well made.

    The Shawshank Redemption

    Tim Robbins plays Andy Dufresne, a city banker, wrongfully convicted of murdering his wife and her lover. He is sent to Shawshank Prison in 1947 and receives a double life sentence for the crime. Andy forms an unlikely friendship with "Red" (Morgan Freeman), the man who knows how to get things. Andy faces many trials in prison, but forms an alliance with the wardens because he is able to use his banking experience to help the corrupt officials amass personal fortunes. The story unfolds....

    What a great movie... if any of you have not seen it, by God, watch it. I don't know how anyone has never seen it, because it's on TBS every couple weeks, and I have a hard time not watching it over and over. Great movie. Certainly in my Top 10 of all time.

    Renegade. It's a western like you've NEVER seen before, very deep. Some folks get it, some don't.

    Hey, it's got Ernest Borgnine in it!

    It is very cool.
