I haven't seen a movie for quite a few months. Sure, the boyfriend and I had rented a few movies but nothing too memorable. I think the last movie I saw in theater was Zombieland, which was fun. The last movie I saw on TV was a zombie movie called Mulberry Street that I kinda liked, so you know what my movie trend is now. I'm not quite persuaded that I should see New Moon, Red Cliff or Ninja Assassin. No movies in theaters or coming up that I really wanted to see. Weird, because usually during holidays there would be some amazing movies coming up. Besides Nine (The Musical), since the cast is amazing, I'm hoping that it would be what Chicago could be or even better.
I saw this list at Advertising Is Good For You a few days ago which is a list of highest gross movies of this decade originated at Wikipedia.
As in all the other movie meme,
- Bold the movie if you’ve seen it.
- Put asterisks next to the movies you’ve seen and really liked.
- If you saw a film and hated it, cross it out.
Reasons on why you like/hate it would be appreciated.

50. Meet the Fockers (Universal; 2004) $516,642,939
Ben Stiller is a bit tired in these comedy where he embarrasses himself.
Well, I can't say I hated many of them and of course, or else they won't be movies with the highest gross, but I'm surprised to find I didn't really LOVE many of them. I guess you don't have to be a superb film for people to buy tickets to go see. Kids films and fantasy series seems to be big sellers, interesting...
Anywho, have a great weekend!
