Julie & Julia: LOVE LOVE LOVE Meryl Streep as Julia Child (she's freakin' hi-larious)! The way that the film parallels Julia's life with 2002 New York's "Julie" was done excellently. Bonus - not only is the movie about cooking, it's also about BLOGGING! Delightful with no calories.
Defiance: Talk about tough as nails. Daniel Craig and Liev Schreiber are incredible as brothers leading a community of Russians living in the woods from the Nazis during WWII. Powerful, dramatic story (based on true people and events), gritty, painful, and inspiring.
Up: What a nice surprise! A touching story filled with whimsical characters that you just want to *HUG*. Go on this adventure with your kids, niece or nephew, or girlfriends. Nice humor, visually stunning - Pixar films just keep cranking out the hits.
Green Street Hooligans: Not a new movie, I had never heard of this 2005 film but man was I happy I watched it. Imagine a cross between Fight Club and Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels - Drinking, sports, fights, English accents (duuuuuude). Guys, you will love this movie, I guarantee it. You can skip J&J and up.
Ninja: I am embarrassed to have seen this one and, for the record, did NOT pick it out. Dumbest movie ever! Ninja guy and girl on the run protecting a secret box from the bad ninja. Bad acting, bad effects. Bad, bad, bad.
Always Sunny in Philadelphia (Christmas Special): This is not for the weak-hearted or conservative. Our Paddy's gang is in FULL FORCE offending everyone in this flick because it never aired on cable. Even poor Santa's not safe. I was actually shocked about 4 times but was laughing the whole time. Must see for Sunny fans.
