I've been hooked on some of these BBC crime dramas. They're not movies, but each episode is movie length.

Foyle's War
Wallander (the new one with Branagh)
Bengzton
Copper

Once I read that "it's easier to fool people than to convince them that they are being fooled", this one movie proves the saying right.
This movie makes one reflect on historic gurus.

Good movie.
Been recommending it to fiends.

Watched "Mud" a few weeks ago. A very good movie.

I found "Better off Ted" to be a cutting satire of corporate America.
It kind of made it difficult to take my own job seriously.

"Fire Squirrel!... Look out"

My son turned us on to Ted, great show. Especially the episode where they "deal with it!", not to mention the "artificial" beef project.

"War of Arrows".

Sort of a "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon" combined with Akira Kurosawa style type Bow and Arrow warrior awesomeness.

4 out of five arrows.

Waltz with Bashir - This is the story of an Israeli army veteran who is trying to put together some missing pieces from his military past, specifically a Palestinian civilian massacre that occurred 20+ years prior, which he cannot remember. The entire film is animated, but it is very well done. 4.5 Uzis out of 5.

Cabin in the Woods! By Joss Whedon! It is not your typical kids get killed in the woods sort of horror flick. Quite clever, worth your time.

I might need to re-watch that show. It is a bit like two seasons of Office Space. Damn funny.
