I've seen Chigago, The Hours, Unfailthful, LOTR, The Pianist and MBFG Wedding.
Highly recommend Chicago...great entertainment and Catherine ZJ is amazing.
LOTR was good for that kind of movie, though long.
The Hours and The Pianist are both incredible, but a bit more than slightly depressing. I guess The Pianist is more disturbing than depressing, but it is definitely an excellent film. Adrian Brody does an incredible job.
The performances in The Hours are fantastic..including Ed Harris in a supporting role. I wouldn't give it overall Best Film because it does plod a bit, but the actors are top-notch.
Unfaithful was meh to me....it was okay, but no more incredible than Fatal Attraction. Giving an Oscar to someone for having racy sex scenes was done last year....sorry Diane.
Anyone on the planet who has not seen My Big Fat Greek Wedding needs to run, not walk to their local video store (it came out today!). It is Hi-larious. I really hope Nia Vardalos wins the Oscar for original screenplay. Btw....the new TV show of the movie premieres on Monday, 2/24, after Raymond on CBS. My bro-in-law works on the show and I'm going to see it filmed on Friday night. Yay!
