    District 9. 1st act is mockumentary. 2nd act features the protagonist goes into transformation. 3rd act is all balls out action.

    No country for old men Scratch that you dislike drama.

    Stagecoach is a old western, featuring John Wayne. Most likely you'll find it on TCM when the moon is blue.

    Inglorious Basterds is hell of a good spaghetti flick by Quentin Taratino. It may not be his strongest movie, but I enjoyed it.

    I usually just don't like period flick oscar bait (like King's Speech). I loved No Country, although some would say it was also oscar bait

    I fully recommend District 9. I totally forgot about that movie.

    If you wanna see some interesting films forget the mass market stuff, and check out foreign films. Foreign romances are usually most known, but netflix actually has a good collection of foreign scifi/fantasy.

    As for tearjerker type I'd recommend Not One Less. It's a Chinese film about a really small town teacher, who due to underfunding, needs to keep her class size intact or she won't be paid. One of the children gets scouted for the athletics department ("Can you run? Great let's take her"), so technically the title isn't so, but another is lost in the city because his parents can't work. So the teacher, a 15-year-old girl how barely graduated high school, decides to go find him, with a month deadline. It's really good.

    I saw Bugmaster (pretty much Mushishi), and it was okay, though it felt more like a horror than a scifi.

    Jean du Florette and Manon of the Spring is a good series. Our french teacher showed it (it was kinda funny though, she "censored" Manon as there was a nude bathing scene, so she stood in front of it and watched. Pervert), and it's about this family of no-accounts that scam this hunchback's family out of their farm by blocking the water, and the hunchback's daughther's revenge (on the town).

    Wtf? The last I checked of Foreign Sci-Fi they had like 10 pages. Now they have two.
    Oh. You have to goto browse DVDs, then Foreign, then SciFi. I think the first was just the new stuff.

    I found Stagecoach boring as hell, then when we visited Tucson I figured out why. They were going around in circles.

    Just finished Stagecoach and loved it. As campy as it seemed, it was a great classic western.

    It also suggested Wayne's Chisum, and Rio Bravo (which I have not seen for over a decade)
    Chisum was...odd...but pretty good for an older Wayne. I'll probably pick up Rio Bravo today and see if it still lives up to my memories.

    There was a movie on the history channel about D-Day with Tom Selleck. It wasn't exactly like a Saving Private Ryan, but more about how Eisenhower planning the invasion.
