Glory Road was actually filmed on campus at LSU when my wife and I attended.

Wasn't too impressed initially, but after seeing how well its fared on IMDB, seeing it do well in our Sci Fi bracket, rereading Mitch's good review of it ... I gotta give it another whirl.Once, I think the comp is Lost in Translation. If you liked Lost in Translation, you will most assuredly like Once. If you thought Lost In Translation was overrated ... you will likely not think much of Once.

Wow.2006 though.A must add to the Netflix Q's of anyone who hasn't seen this. #48 all time on IMDB to give you a clue.1984 East Germany, pre the Wall going down. High profile couple comes under surveilance of the Stasi, the commies that were running East Germany back in those days. The man conducting the surveilance becomes absorbed into their lives.That description doesn't do this one justice. Just rent it. All in German, with subtitles. Incredible film.Thanks for the recommendation. Totally turned around my Thursday night after the Cavs debacle.

Mitch wrote:Good point, Buff.Don't know about a review, E0y...got one coming pretty much every week (for good or bad) over the next few months, and I've only done one previous one for a DVD...But one could never tell. Might throw one together if/when I have time, and then let Swerb fit it in on a lighter sports news day.(which may start tomorrow if the Cavs don't step it up).

I currently have a movie in my Q and it's availability is listed as Unknown. This is the first time I've come across this and was wondering if any of you "experienced" Netflix subscribers could let me know what this means.

I've viewed such fine flicks as Pan's Labrynth, In the Valley of Elah, and High Tension, and figured I'd go ahead and list the movies in my queue now to see others opinions (Brilliant idea Swerb). Right now I have the following, some of which have been covered.1.) Downfall (based on previous suggestions)2.) The Bank Job3.) Heat: Special Edition (really curious about this one)4.) Memphis Belle5.) Schindler's List (I know I know)6.) The Deer Hunter7.) 21 (Have heard mixed reviews)8.) Hott Fuzz9.) Green Street Hooligans10.) Bridge to Terabithia11.) Spiderwick Chronicles (I have a 10 yr old and figure 10 & 11 might be good for family flicks?)12.) 25th Hour (I'm a big fan of Ed Norton, but don't recall this movie)13.) Funny Games (mixed reviews as well)

I thought that all the actors put together pretty good work, but the love story seemed out of place to me.Also, get Schindler's List immediately. Best Spielberg movie I've ever seen, and that's saying something with his resumé.

Man, you got some great movies in there. You're gonna have fun working through that list.

I always look forward to seeing Swerb's updated version, and thought it might be cool to see the sites "movie critic" put together a list as well. I'm not sure how much work it would take, or if you'd even be interested.....it's just a thought.
