I think its Jeepers Creepers 2 . I liked the first one, it was a decent low budget horror. Didn't watch the sequel completely though.

This indeed is Jeepers Creepers 2.

I liked both the movies, first was slightly better ( Own the DVD) and second part is not too bad either.

I own a blue-ray DVD of " Flight of Phoenix"

It's a thriller movie with lots of action and i enjoy watching it on my 40" LCD hooked to a Onkyo Home Theatre System

1. Black Hawk Down

2. Bourne series

3. Behind Enemy Lines

4. SWAT

5. What Lies Beneath (not an action movie, but a murder mystery. Superb sound effects will have you jumping out of your skin)

I dont have a list right now, will add more after I get home and refer to my collection.

P.S. Which HT did you get?

Took my daughter to the movie Toy Story 3 over the weekend. My take on this one:

Another one of those brilliant movies, which Pixar somehow seems to make a lot better than others. The expressions of those "toys" were brilliant. The story-line is typically Pixarish, with a lot of values and emotions thrown in. The 3D effects were good, without going overboard. Incidentally, this is the first 3D movie I have watched in my life. I and my wife enjoyed it as much as my daughter did.

I would rate it 4/5.

I agree. Seems like Pixar can do no wrong. 12 movies and all critical and commercial successes. I think no one can match their record.
Regarding the 3D, i found the 3D in "How to Train your Dragon" very well done. The animation was gorgeous and the story was very good too. One of the best movies from Dreamworks till date.

+1, I would rate 'How to Train your Dragon' on of the best movies in 2010. I haven't seen Toy Story 3 as yet, but hopefully will see it soon. I liked the first 2 parts very much.

The Messenger

Excellent performances by the lead protagonists Ben Foster and Woody Harrelson. The two are in the American army having the onus of breaking out the news of deaths of soldiers fighting in Iraq to the next of kin. Harrelson was nominated for best supporting actor in this years Oscars for the role.

I thought the movie had some things in common from both Up in the Air and Hurt Locker.

Rating: 4/5
