The last 2 movies for me:

Star Wars: Revenge of The Sith
IMO, this is one of the best Star Wars movies I have seen. Great action sequences, and it tied up most of the threads linking the prequels to the original trilogy. Currently (subject to change) I rank the Star Wars movies in this order:
V [EBS]
IV [ANH]
III [RoTS]
VI [RoTJ]
II [AoTC]
I [TPM

Batman Begins
Truthfully, I have not seen any of the other Batman movies (excpet for a spinoff of the old TV show starring Adam West and Burt Ward) I really enjoyed this movie. It reminded me of The Bourne Supremacy, how they filmed their action scenes up close and cut back and forth a lot. Really cool! I also liked seeing Michael Caine playing Albert and Morgan Freeman in this movie.

YEah, my rankings of the Stars Wars movies exactly mirrors yours.

Batman Begins is indeed a very good movie, and very different from its earlier-released sequels. Darker and more broody than the others, with the best Batman actor in Christian Bale, it's what the other Batman movies should have been like. However, the First Batman with the Joker is still a good fun movie too.

Well I watched Conan the Destroyer a while ago. It's funny to see the Governor of California punching horses and camels. That movie also has so little talking that someone could mistake for silent movie :wink:

A really good movie for beerdrinking night. Laughs are guaranteed.

I haven't seen the newest star wars yet but besides that my list of favourites is the same as striders.

For SW III go to the cinema, do not watch it on your comp or DVD - you'll lose the best part...

Revenge of the Sith is IMHO the best SW movie of the lot. To be honest th original is looking a bit dated. I have the digitally remastered versions on DVD and while I wll never forget the legacy they created for the SF genre in general, I do consider them to be a bit old looking now. But c'mon its Star Wars so I can forgive at a few wrinkles and grey hairs.

ROTS restored my faith in the SW franchise. It perfectly tied the new with the old. I thought the fight scenes were excellent. It also clearly showed the path Anakin was on right from the off. When he beheaded Duku .... well there really was no way back after that. I really liked spotting things that were put their to connect ROTS with ANW......I mean they even had a guy that looked like Peter Cushing right at the end. Totally Awesome.

Now the last movie I saw I totally recommend. War of the Worlds absolutely RAWCKS !! An amazing return to form for Spielberg. Excellent effects and I have to admit I agree with the critics ....I wouldn't take a 12 year old to see it !!

And for beer night.............I would suggest Hawk the Slayer !! This is possibly the worst fighting fantasy/sword and sorcery film ever made. I even laugh out loud when I'm sober never mind when I'm drinking beer.

I recently got the Back to The Future DVD set at ye local Wal-Mart™ for 20 bucks, so now I'm watching them again. The deleted scenes and special features are really great and worth watching.

I'll have to see Serenity one of these days. The last "movie" I saw was the Star Wars Holiday Special. I know, it is the crappiest thing ever, but I made myself watch it to show my Star Wars Fan-ness. I figured ("how bad could it be?") I soon found out...really bad. BUT well worth watching for the heck of it.  :)

I watched King Kong last night, and it was a quite descent movie. A little long IMHO, but some breathtaking CGI and a couple of talanted actors made it worth the price and time.

Some of you ought to have seen A history of Violence, was it worth to watch? I have heard some different reviews, so your opinion would be cool!

Nope, there was no ads or trailers for X-men 3, but I live in Sweden and there might be different trailers in other countries.

Pireates of the Carribean II: Dead Man's Chest.

One of the worst movies I have ever seen. Disappointing after the first one. It was repetitive and twice as long as it needed to be. None of the plotlines are tied up and the ending is a teaser for the next sequel. I won't be lining up for that.  :evil:  :twisted:  :roll:
So that's where that southerner is hiding...He looks more than half like a goblin.
