I've only seen one of these films. Can you guess which?


  1. The Pursuit of Happyness?

    I haven't seen any of these films. In my opinion, its been all downhill since the LOTR trilogy. What else is there to look forward to?

  2. Neither of those. The Wife and I rented "The Devil Wears Prada" a couple weeks ago. The movie was okay, but Streep's performance was deliciously evil - and suprisingly human.

  3. I have seen, The Departed, United 93, and The Devil Wears Prada. I also definately want to see Babel, Little Miss Sunshine (which we actually rented in Dec but never got around to watching) and Dreamgirls. And, I am ecstatic that Beyonce and Jamie Foxx have gotten left out of all of the glory b/c they are both way too cocky for their own good and needed knocked down a little.
