Welcome to the forum..!!

And for question: No, You can watch any movie, irrespective of its ICM status, that has a release date between 2000-2009.. You can even watch a movie that has not even got a IMDb page also...!!

He's too busy watching non-official check silent films to pay attention to this.

1. Wasting Away-2007: 8/10

Pretty good Horror/Comedy that does something a little different with the zombie movie. Doesn't always work, mostly due to an obviously small budget but it's still entertaining and pretty funny. The acting was a lot better than I expected and I always love seeing Richard Riehle.

1. NAPOLA or Before the Fall 2004

Good German film about a boy in a Nazi Boxing Academy during the War, his friend, his friend's father the Governor. And the nasty educational system they had and the effects it had on the boys and their behaviour. Terrifying in a way.

It gets me a SILVER for the IMDB Sports list also.

Yes, until tonight I'd managed never to see Avatar. That means there are now only two people left in the world who haven't seen it.

I don't know who's the other one, but I haven't seen it either. And don't really care to, either, unless there comes an opportunity to see it in 3D, preferably on big screen. From what I've read, there's no other reason to watch it.
