About a dozen of us enjoyed getting together after seeing the "300" last Saturday.

Any interest in seeing any of these? Or anything else?

(In order of release date)


The Lives of Others
In 1984, five years before the fall of East Berlin, Captain Gerd Wiesler (Ulrich Mühe) is employed by the Stasi, East Germany's incredibly powerful secret police. He is asked to spy on a celebrated playwright and actress couple, Georg Dreyman (Sebastian Koch) and Christa-Maria Sieland (Martina Gedeck). But as his role as an observer suddenly morphs into that of a manipulator, Wiesler is stuck in a very dangerous game.

I am interested in the last three.
If I go see Harry Potter, Pirates or Spiderman with out my kids, there will be a rebellion, so I am not interested in seeing it as an NTOS event.
