#s 69-60

69. Beyond the Gates of Splendor - pretty good documnetary on Jim Eliot and his crew. Again, I felt like the gospel was taken out of that was completely central to the overall story. It suffered.

68. Dave Chappelle's Block Party - Good rap, desperate comedian. New York seems like a weird place.

67. Fast Food Nation - intriguing if not too political

66. Art School Confidential - had its funny moments, but the script was somewhat disengaging. Characters were hard to relate to.

65. Thumbsucker - or, as I like to call it, "Lost in Translation for Teens"

64. Accepted - Justin Long is going to have a long, funny career

63. Benchwarmers - Funny, just funny. Goofy plot, awkward characters. But funny.

62. Redeye - Good suspenseful thriller. Rachel McAdams has my vote any day.

61. Mrs. Henderson Presents - I suppose this one wasn't higher because of the content. It was a good movie, overall.

60. Jarhead - Seemed like an accurate account of the lives of Marines in combat.

until next time, keep watching

You know what's missing from your great rundown of movies? ...links to sites containing background info on the movies. (How do you to punctuate a question and answer in the same sentence? I bet Grammar Girl would know.
