  1. "Up In the Air" was a film that really got my attention this year. I watched it shortly after suddenly losing my job, with no warning. Was surreal.

    "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo"... It sounds like a really interesting movie, but, I'm not certain that I could sit through a rape scene that graphic. I've had friends advise me to avoid it, or at least to avoid that particular scene.

    I saw "Inception". I thought it was absolutely amazing! :) I agree with what you said, it was "an experience", rather than just a film. So true!

    And now, you have given me a whole list of films that I just gotta watch! :)
