How was Strangers With Candy?

I want to see The Puffy Chair, which despite it's name looks to be good.

First off, you know going in it's a "cult" crowd, so nothing will go over anyone's head. There were a few scenes that had my friend and me in near tears, and the cast was not what you'd expect (don't look it up, it's a pleasant surprise). What more can you ask of a wacky movie?

I want to see "Clerks II," "Little Miss Sunshine," and "Fay Grim" ("Henry Fool  II"). "Fay Grim" is currently in post-production; I'm hoping it comes out soon.

I'll keep "The Puffy Chair" in mind, thanks.

I just read a review. Well written, low budget indies are right up my alley.

I'm desperate to see Something New. I've seen X-Men 3, Nacho Libre, The Devil Wears Prada, Pirates 2, and Superman. I want to see An Inconvient Truth. Anybody psyched about Snakes on a Plane? It just looks soooo stupid, but I want to see it.

Nacho Libre...An Inconvient Truth
Oh, thanks, blackgirl. I've got to see "An Inconvienient Truth" soon, before it leaves.

I loved "Napolean Dynamite," so I'd take a chance on "Nacho Libre." Did you like it?

I HATED Napoleon Dynamite. It was not funny at all. Maybe I need to see it again. Nacho Libre was pretty funny. His song at the end was hilarious.

Little Miss Sunshine looks to be amazing, I can't wait to see it.

If you enjoy alot of indie films, check out indiewire.com they usually have good stuff, and check out movies from either Sundance or South by Southwest.

Definitely, I pay premium for IFC and Sundance.

I've seen some of my favorite movies on these two...hmmm, some that come to mind:

Ghost World
Clockwatchers
Day Trippers
Next Stop Wonderland
The Secret Lives of Dentists
Hedwig and the Angry Inch

Have you seen either Before Sunrise or Before Sunset? I loved both, but I liked Before Sunset a little better.

If you were an Italian woman, I think I might allow you to drag me to one of these.

Lol seriously though, they have the most amazing well written dialogue of any movie I've ever seen. But I don't think they're my favorite movie(s)

Ah, but had you ever considered that SS06 might know an Italian woman who could drag you to one of those?
She KNEW she had a big fat ass...and her attitude was "Kiss it!"

Please! I'm just getting over my crush on SS06, for crying out loud. Give me time to grieve my loss. I don't want to rush into a new relationship on the rebound.

Please forgive my insensitivity.  :head-smack:  It's so nice to know that you're not one of the love-em-and-leave-em kind of guys.  ;;)

Hey blackgirl!

Go see "An Inconvenient Truth" then see "Who Killed the Electric Car?" A great double feature; they rock!
