Overall, I think it is one of those movies that is deserving of all the praise it gets! It's just a great, uplifting movie... even though it was tinged with a lot sadness as well.

Of course, I also bought the DVD for the first TF movie, and am watching the 1986 cartoon movie as well.

Last 2 days I rewatched Alexander and Troy and I love both. I don't understand why was Alexandar such a flop and a critical failure.
I think the last new movie I watched was Sex and The City and that's cause I love the series and the movie didn't disappoint.
I'm looking forward to the Sopranos movie, it's one of my favorite series.

A couple of the movies in my inbox:
Prisoners of War is the gripping ten-part drama on which the American series Homeland is based. When three Israeli Defence Force reservists are captured behind enemy lines in Lebanon their fate is unknown, that is until seventeen years later, when they mysteriously return - two of them alive, the third in a coffin. The story of their time in captivity unfolds as they attempt to reintegrate into society; trying to cope with the pressures of being reintroduced to their families and friends, as well as handling the national hero status being thrust upon them via the public limelight. The gripping plot unravels through three time plains; before capture, life in captivity and present day, which all intertwine to reveal dark secrets about their life in captivity.
In Prisoners of War (Hatufim - or 'abductees' in Hebrew), the story of their time in captivity unfolds as they attempt to reintegrate into society: they try to cope with the pressures of being reintroduced to their families and friends, as well as handling the national hero status being thrust upon them via the public limelight.
This riveting Scandinavian noir thriller in the tradition of 'The Killing' and 'The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo', stars Tuva Novotny (Eat Pray Love, Stoned) as a woman who awakens on a remote riverbank with a head wound, a bag with 2 million Euros and no memory of what happened or who she is. Attempting to piece together the complex mystery of her past, she soon realises there are violent strangers on her tail and her life is in grave danger. Also starring Flemming Enevold (The Killing II) and Carsten Bjornlund (The Thing; The Killing II), ID:A boasts a taut Hitchcockian plot that expertly teases the viewer with gradually revealed fragments of information before unveiling the final shocking truth.
A woman wakes up in a river. Wounded and without memory, then races to elude mysterious followers and recover from amnesia.
The story plays out over the course of a day and a night at hotel Close for Heaven, a cosmopolitan place where people of various races, nationalities, and cultures meet. Not even at the turn of the millennium is it easy to be black in a Czech city. A thirty-year-old Kenyan named Samuel stands at the edge of the hotel roof recalling his native land. He spreads his arms, closes his eyes, and flings himself off. Then time stops, allowing Samuel to explain why he has decided to take his life. He introduces the viewer to the hotel´s denizens, the people who at one time or another have crossed his path: his beautiful Swedish love named Emily, his African family, the Siamese twins Kira and Mína, the conjurer Ernest, a society of old séance enthusiasts, the mysterious Mr. Jägermeister, and last but not least the hotel owner, Mr. Gut. Thus unfolds a story of multiple perspectives which culminates in an entirely unexpected way.
Close to Heaven' is the last bohemian hotel in Prague, inhabited by a bizarre assortment of people, all of whose fates will become entwined in one moment of magic.
