Sweet deal, man. Can't wait to check it out. I'm sure that Cool as Ice will be in the mix at some point, right?

Hot Fuzz is a movie that I need to see all the way through. I've only seen chunks of it on TV. I'm liking the idea of this 52 pick up for movies.

Some suggestions
Up in the Air (2009, one of my favorite movies from last year)
Angel of Death (2009, written by comic writer Ed Brubaker)
Exiled (2006, this is a Chinese film with some pretty fantastic action scenes)
Michael Clayton (2007, kind of a slow burn, but a very good modern noir)

If I think of any more I'll add them to my list.

My first suggestion, which is kind of hard because I don't know what you have seen and what you have not seen. Make a list! (kidding!)

Josie and the Pussycats!

^ He'll have to deal with me being a total girl during the whole movie, or watch it when I'm not around, because I LOVE me some Josie and the Pussycats.

Too bad I don't have it on DVD, though. dry

DON'T watch it on tv...trust me...rent it!!

Great article and even left a comment. Wink

Some movie suggestions:
Frailty - it is a horror movie that was written and directed by Bill Pullman. Don't let the fact that Matthew McConaghy is in it scare you away.

hunt down the dvd, just be careful. There are two versions of thje movie out there on dvd, one of them will say "family version" on it. You don't want that one, they took out the sexual innuendoes.

I haven't seen any of those but by titles alone I am digging Angel of Death and Exiled but George Clooney does have dreamy eyes. I will do some research and let you know which one I pick.

I have seen Frailty and loved it. Bill Paxtons greatest work since Twister!

I loved Bill Pullman in Aliens.

On an unrelated note, Bill Paxton kicked ass in Independence Day.

Galaxy Quest
While this movie is an obvious spoof of Star Trek, there's no shortage of laughs. Tim Allen leads an all-star cast as struggling actors who still do convention appearances for a TV show canceled 20 years ago but still has the adoring fanbase. But when the old TV transmissions are intercepted by aliens and interpreted as 'historical documents', the cast are unknowingly recruited to free the aliens from an interstellar dictator. Hilarity ensues.

Mr. Brooks
A murder thriller starring Kevin Costner and William Hurt. Costner battles against his tendencies towards violence while Hurt acts as the devil on his shoulder constantly egging him on. Can Costner give in to his passion while maintaining his family man image? All this with a nice twist ending.

Big Fish
An estranged son visits his 'larger-than-life' father on his deathbed. For years the son has harbored resentment towards his father for his long absences and crazy stories which he presumed hid the truths of his fathers adventures. It's a truly touching story of a son getting to know his father with some fantastic imagery. It's one of the few movies that have made me tear up at the end. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

I-Spy
Remember when Eddie Murphy was funny? This might have been the last time. Owen Wilson is an aspiring secret agent who is saddled with celebrity Eddie Murphy whose fame is used to gain access to some top government officials. Zany adventures teach Murphy about friendship and Wilson about self-confidence.

The Green Mile
Set in 1935, Tom Hanks is the chief officer of a penitentiary housing some of Louisiana's worst criminals. Inmates come here for one reason.. to walk 'the Green Mile' (i.e. Death Row). Its recent inmate, John Coffey (Michael Clarke Duncan) convicted of killing and raping two little girls brings on multiple occurrences of strange and unexplainable incidents. The guards come to realize there's something special about John, and when the time comes for John to walk the Green Mile, the guards face a tough decision when new evidence may prove his innocence.

Falling Down
Michael Douglas is your typical American with a 9 to 5 job and a failed marriage. When Douglas has finally had enough of his crappy circumstances, he takes matters into his own hands which leads to a day long stroll through Los Angeles 'reinventing himself'.. and wreaking havoc across the city.

Grosse Point Blank
John Cusak is a disenfranchised hitman who wants to attend his High School reunion to get back in touch with lost friends and lost loves. But when his work follows him back to his small town home, will he ever be able to get free of bloodshed? If you're a fan of Cusak, this is definitely a must see.
