Recent or must see movies worth a rental?

Since I am stuck inside this weekend with all the snow I was going to rent a few movies. Anyone have some recommendations on some recent or must see movies worth a rental. I have missed out on some of the recent movies at the theater since I have been busy with all my classes and would like to see a few good movies this weekend.
Thanks!

Anyone?!?!?! LOL
I have been looking and I have been thinking about Cabin Fever and Whale Rider. I am going as soon as I get off work tonight.
Any other suggestions?
Thanks again!

None this weekend, that I know of. On Feb 2nd, you might want to pick up Lost in Translation.

Other then that, I don't know of any must see new rentals right now. CHeers Season 2 came out recently, if your so inclined.

Good luck!

I don't know if it's out just yet, but American Splendar is the most entertaining, experimental movie I've seen in the past while. Definetely worth watching.

In terms of rentals, I'd say Out of Time (Denzel Washington) would be pretty good. I bought it, and it was entertaining but nothing I'd watch again.

Yeah get Out of Time, it was pretty entertaining. By the way don't rent Cabin Fever as it is terrible.
You may also wanna get Once Upon A Time In Mexico which was ok

I would recommend Spellbound, an excellent documentary about the spelling bee.
