getting DVDs of the movies during the past year that we wanted to see but never got around to it. With 3 boys, we get lots of action PG type flicks.

Here's we we got in our stockings...

6 year old

Underdog & Transformers

10 & 11 year olds

Shrek 3, The Simpsons Movie, Spiderman 3, Pirates of the Caribbean 3, Harry Potter & the Order of the Phoenix

Me:
The Nativity Story, Help! (big Beatles fan, movie finally came out on DVD a month ago). The Bourne Identity & Supremacy.

Man, we got a lot of movies to get us through the winter!

Good selection there.
I loved Transformers and was very very letdown by Spiderman 3
I'm about to watch all three Bourne's soon.
I saw the first 2 and need to refresh my memory before watching the 3rd one.

Loved the Bourne trilogy. Good to have the dvd pause feature becase tere's not a minute you can afford to head to the pisser in the theater.

Non-stop action in all of them and they're all enjoyable.

Well, I've watched the 1st Bourne movie and it was good. Looking for to the 2nd.

Harry Potter was good, but you could really feel this was a middle type movie setting up the last 2. I love this series!

Underdog was cute, but being a fan when I was a kid of the cartoons, I have a soft spot in my heart for this.

Spiderman 3 was easily the worst of the 3 so far. It was just ok I thought but vastly inferior to 1 and 2. IMO, 2 was by far the best.

Haven't watched the others yet.

My parents had to get a rain check for the Bourne Trilogy because no one had it before Christmas. Circuit Shitty still hasn't called and I haven't seen a single Best Buy with it yet.

I have Ultimatum coming via Blockbuster In-Home Trial. As for Xmas, Season 2 of Prison Break, Troy, Knocked Up, Tribe DVD.
