Best movies out right now?
(#1) Seabiscuit -- Toby McGuire (Spiderman & Pleasantville) is always nice to look at ... the underdog saves the day (or underhorse *grin*) ... no sex, little foul language, no gore ... Oscars certain.
Samuel L. Jackson and Colin Ferrel in a cop movie ... underdog theme as well ... no sex, some foul language, no gore ... not an Oscar contender, but enjoyable.
Johnny Depp in a strange role (does he ever pick normal ones?) ... Orlando Bloom (Young blond elf in Lord of the Rings) is a cutie ... Nice girl (?) ... Very fun, very exciting, neat-o special effects for the ghosts (but not gory) ... so good it will probably spawn a sequel or two.
(#3) Freaky Friday with Jamie Lee Curtis and the girl that did that Parent Trap remake a couple of years ago (what was her name?) ... very enjoyable.
28 Days Later was a truly scary movie ... a modern twist on the old zombie motif ... several disturbing scenes, some foul language, some gore ... but very compelling.
Uptown Girls has Britney Murphy and Dakota Fanning (the little girl from I am Sam) in a riches-to-rags movie with the classic odd couple conflict ... prim and orderly versus free-spirited and messy.
Gigli (slutty, cursing, gory, mobster, waste of $$$)
