Poll question: What's the best, most recent movie you've seen.
For those of you who have taken time and money to see a movie this summer, I'm just curious as to which one you went to, and how you liked it. If you've seen more than one of these below, pick the one you liked best and leave any comments too!!

Sorry, polls are turned off at Level 3.

2. I'll start...

Cinderella Man was absolutely great! So was Batman Begins. I'd recommend both of these. Actually, I can't understand why Cinderella Man has done less well than expected at the box office.
Are people tired of Russell Crowe?

5. Cinderella Man was great
I actually hesitantly went to see it but absolutely loved it. All the other movies sound like crap to me so haven't seen any others.

6. Sin City
Saw it at a beer theater last weekend. Terrific. Will get the DVD.

Obviously not for the folks who are averse to sex and violence in movies.

8. Easily -- Howl's Moving Castle
''Howl's Moving Castle,'' freely adapted from a children's fantasy novel by Diana Wynne Jones, is the latest animated tour de force from Hayao Miyazaki, the director of, among other masterpieces, ''Princess Mononoke,'' ''My Neighbor Totoro'' and ''Spirited Away.'' Admirers of his work, which is wildly imaginative, emotionally intense and surpassingly gentle, will find much to appreciate in this film because it demonstrates, once again, his visual ingenuity and his sensitivity as a storyteller. For newcomers to his world, ''Howl's Moving Castle'' is a fitting introduction to one of modern cinema's great enchanters.

11. Star Wars....
Plan to see War of the Worlds soon!

The rest I'll wait for DVD release.

The last movie, before SW, was The Polar Express last November!!!!

13. Hated Batman...
that was a major snoozer for me. Then again, I also didn't like the two Spiderman movies (which everyone seemed to like).

I liked War of The Worlds so much so that I saw it a second time.

My favorite is SW: ROTS. I've seen it 4 times in the theater and 2 times on a bootlegged DVD.

14. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
Nothing but geriatrics and kids talking through movies down here so I dont go nearly as much as I used to.

I would rather spend a little more and buy the DVD if Im interested in seeing it.

15. Batman Begins
if they gave out Academy Awards for "awesomeness", it would totally win. Plus I saw it on IMAX which only enhanced the viewing

17. Madagascar
Only one we've made it to so far. Family unit thing. Cute, but no classic...
