    Well just got 3.0 today at sisters, and we can finally buy movies, shows and music videos off wi-fi woo!! :D

    So I was wondering, what are some good movies that are worth getting?

    I'm looking for comedy movies, and maybe 1 action....
    I haven't seen alot of movies lol, I hear pineapple express was funny, the harold and kumar movies, zack and miri....i heard those were good, but cant decide what ones to get

    Any opinions/suggestions?

    Borat - very funny guy (You have probably seen this already)
    Without a Paddle - quite funny and nice story
    Defiance - epic WW2 action/war film, one of my favourite all time films.
    Forest Gump - again you have probably seen this, but incase you haven't, you MUST watch it. Best film ever IMO.

    Fight club is a movie that when you first watch it, you'll be like wtf was that, and be a bit disturbed for a day or so. Then, after a while, you'll realize that was one of the greatest movies you've ever seen.

    If you've never seen Animal House, its awesome! It is like the first American Pie style movie, but a lot better.

    Borat is hideous, I wouldn't get that.

    Eastern Promises is a good drama.

    Pineapple Express and Superbad are great comedies.

    If you enjoy Pixar movies, WALL-E is awesome. Great social satire.

    Yes Man is good. I didn't think it would be and didnt have many expectations and ended up being very surprised.

    Fight Club of course is great.

    www.imdb.com is a good resource to use before renting a movie. Good reviews, trailers, summaries.

    I hate most of the new comedies. There's no dry wit, subtle sarcasm, or punchlines that are actually clever. Sure, there're the few here and there, like Iron Man (loved it), Yes Man (almost more than IM), but for the most part, eh...

    My recommendations:

    The Naked Guns Series (flat-out funny)
    What About Bob (Billy Murray, you cannot/B] go wrong with this movie)
    Thank You for Smoking (awesome, Aaron Eckhart's great in this)
    Tommy Boy (a classic, RIP Christ)
    Caddy Shack (Billy Murray and Chevy Chase in this same movie, need I say more?)
    Fletch (another little known but awesome comedy starring Chevy Chase)

    Those are all that I can think of off the top of my head, but believe me, they are incredible, each and every one.

    Fired up - Don't be fooled. This movie is hillarious and has a lot of one liners.
    Top Secret - Monty Python type funny.
    Kung Pow - wtf funny but may creep you out.
    Shoalin Soccer - Smart funny and cool special effects

    You'll like these kamazar.

    Step brothers ftw,
    I wouldn't get borat, others have said it was hilarious, but I bought it and watched it and haven't done it again, it just wasn't that good to me.

    The Pixies "Where is My Mind" playing at the end of Fight Club is the best placed song in a movie ever

    Correction: Bonnie Tyler's Holding Out for a Hero in Short Circuit 2 is the best placed song ever.
