I really liked Hellboy. If a movie has good SFX, but is low on plot, I can deal. The acting was pretty good. It was a good ride. We saw it in the theatre, on a date with my husband, sans kids, so it was definitely a good time. I love Ron Perlman, too. (I wonder if the Beauty and the Beast series is on DVD yet. Gotta troll Netflix...)

I liked seeing the Cthulhy stuff onscreen, but it wasn't fantastic.

Hellboy is typically very short stories and stretching it to 90 minutes wasn't really beneficial.

Meredith says of 13 Going on 30: "A completely satisfying girl flick." I watched it with her and give Jennifer Garner credit for some real comic talent.

The new Spike Lee one was Inside Man, I believe.

I'm not much help with these since I haven't seen any. I'd love to watch some with you, though, if we get the chance. Jane Eyre in Manhattan sounds intriguing.
