Dr. Goldfoot and the Girl Bombs: It's like a really cheesy version of Austin Powers from the actual 60s starring Vincent Price, decent B-movie entertainment.

"Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs"

I wasn't actually watching, but my 4 year old thought it was hilarious.

Drag Me to Hell. Wife didn't like it, but aside from the constant spewing, I thought it wasn't half bad.

My kids loved it, too. The best part, as often happens in kids movies, went right over their heads--When Earl (played brilliantly by Mr T), carrying a giant sandwich over his head on top of which sit his wife and son, jumps through a giant tortilla chip, he leaves a hole congruent to his own perimeter--a giant "T". I can't believe no one's gotten a screen cap of that shot and put it online.

I saw The Crazies this weekend, too. Absolutely horrible movie. Every horror/thriller cliche imaginable, physics was damned more times than I can count, and they used the plot device "Wait here while I check ahead" so many times I facepalmed myself until I had a nosebleed.

The Machinist - Pretty good movie, loved the ending. I can't believe that Christian Bale did this movie right before Batman Begins because he lost so much weight for this movie and then put on 100 lbs of muscle, no exaggeration, for Batman.

Requiem for a Dream - intriguing, interesting, strange, quirky, engrossing and depressing

I have a thread mostly devoted to my movie watching so most likely won't be repeat posting here

Those two words should be in super-caps to distinguish it from all the other adjectives you used to describe the movie.
