    Not indie, but I rented Reign Over Me and it was a lot better than I thought it would be.

    I thought it would be at least "ok", but it turned out to be a very good flick. I would say one of the best I've seen this year.

    Adam Sandler being not funny, but still kinda funny.

    In retrospect, it shouldn't be called "The Final Chapter"...cause there were a lot of loose ends...

    The Kingdom was Ok, midly entertaining, but worth the trip to Blockbuster.

    I've wanted to rent Brick a few times but never got around to it, I think I'll give it a try.

    Citizen-X is another good one.

    N-eight actually had some good suggestions in his list there as well, looks like he suggested The Secretary before I did.

    Dear God, whatever you do, make sure you're in a good mood when you watch this one. If you're already depressed when you watch this it will almost certainly push you over the edge.

    BadDNA, totally true. This movie is depressing... and if you can still do drugs after watching that movie, you're a baller. (Not you... but anyone in the general popultion).

    deadatbirth, that's exactly how I felt when I watched it. So bad, it was good!

    Hell, while we're on depressing but good movies, if you can stand musicals go for "Dancer in the Dark"
