Movies Nights

Back in December we joined Blockbuster.com. I have to say that we are both happy with what we are getting. We watch movies every Friday and Saturday nights - nights where television programming is often poor. We have seen around 25 movies since we started - we have 68+ in our queue. We are catching up with movies that we wouldn't pay $12.50 to see in the theater but would pay $1.25 in our family room. Some of my favorites include:
  • The Motorcycle Diaries: The early story of Ernesto "Che" Guevara. A very interesting and beautiful film. What really got us were a couple of scenes in Peru that we recognized - The cathedral in Cuzco and Machu Piccu.

  • The Station Agent: An interesting movie turning the perception of who's normal on its head. Sometimes the normal people are the odd ones.

  • Stranger Than Fiction: An original comedy of a man whose life is not under his total control - to his benefit.

  • The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada: A rancher takes the INS agent, who murdered his ranch hand, hostage and takes him on a trip to return the ranch hand's body to his homeland.
None of the movies have been disappointing - including Jackass: The Movie I & II. I have been surprised at how I look forward to our movie nights - I never was that interested in watching movies at home before.
