I liked Raiders of the Lost Ark better.

I watched Nausicaä of the Valley of Wind.
Into battle we ride with Gods by our side
We are strong and not afraid to die
We have an urge to kill and our lust for blood has to be fulfilled
WE´LL FIGHT TILL THE END! And send our enemies straight to Hell!
- "Into Battle"
{Ensiferum}

Yes I prefer Raiders too, think it's the best of them. Crystal Skull is best forgotten.

Could have sworn that I wrote a post about Beasts of the Southern Wild, but it's not showing, so must not have "submitted it." Hate when that happens! :o Anyway, highly recommend it.

"In the future, the children will know that a girl named Hushpuppy lived with her Daddy in the Bathtub." The Bathtub is a small community in southern Louisiana surrounded by water. The adults, as well as the children, reminded me of the Lost Boys in Neverland: everyday is a party, the living is easy and adults (authority figures) are not allowed. Then the ice caps melt, the storms come, the water rises and Hushpuppy's Daddy gets sick....Told from a six-year-old girl's POV, it's filled with Magic Realism and pathos.

I saw a review of Beasts of the Southern Wild in a magazine and thought it looked wonderful.

Safety Not Guarrenteed is a very satisfying film. Made without the usual Hollywood gore/violence/sex/juvenile humor that is so prevalent in movies now, its a well acted and well written story, that leaves you feeling like you just finished an amazing book that you can't get out of your head for days. The young lady in the film is amazing, and Duplass is better than I've ever seen him. Highly recommended! (btw, produced by the same folks as Little Miss Sunshine)

Is that the original or the new(ish) version? I saw the new one a while ago and really enjoyed it, I don't think I've seen the original so can't compare them.

Joyful Noise. I saw it with my mom and sisters when it was in the theater. Good music, fun movie.
