This is a poll. Enter through the Living Room.

I need the PPK to help me decide between the DVDs I picked up at the library. For reference, the three I haven't seen are Bride & Prejudice, Choke, and Vicky Cristina Barcelona.

I loved Tell No One. I thought it was a really well-done, suspenseful movie. I've seen The Royal Tenenbaums and Vicky Cristina Barcelona too, but I prefer Tell No One over those two.

Royal Tenenbaums is always good no matter what mood you're in. I kind of wanted to see Bride and Prejudice, I think, so maybe that one? I thought vicky cristina was ok, but not the best.

I voted Tell No One. Out of the three you haven't seen, I've only seen Vicky Cristina Barcelona... which I liked, but probably mostly because I have the hugest crush on Penelope Cruz and will watch anything she's in.

Let's just start by saying that I generally have a hard time staying focused enough to make it through an entire movie. That being said, I chose the second one because it appears to be foreign. Who doesn't like a good foreign film?

yeah, that's just because you see 'European' and automatically think "oooh! naked sexy times!" Don't lie.

Bride and Prejudice was a complete waste of time. I found it insipid and dumb.

I'm watching Mansfield Park, so you should watch Bride & Prejudice. Jane Austin night!

I really like Vicky Christina Barcelona. It may not be the best film in the world, but it's definitely fun to watch. Also, it makes me want to live a more European lifestyle and drink more wine.

choke isn't the greatest movie, especially if you've read the book.

That's strange because everybody I've talked to has liked it. Can you be more descriptive besides "dumb"?

I didn't like it. It made me cringe.

Agreed. It just doesn't compare at all.

I really liked He Loves Me... He Loves Me Not and Dieu est grand, je suis toute petite if you're in a Tatou kind of mood.

I was going to say the same thing about Tell No One.

Honestly, I just picked it up because I like Sam Rockwell. I have no idea what it's about seeing as I haven't read the book.

The Royal Tenenbaums. I haven't seen any of the others but it doesn't really matter because not much is better than The Royal Tenenbaums.

Thanks for the help: it looks like the classic Royal Tenenbaums won out. Now time to nestle in with a big bowel of popcorn and a comfy blanket.
