I'm still thinking about movies, and so, for this week's contest, I want to know:

What's the best movie you've seen recently?

I'll take comments through midnight EST on Friday, March 14th, and then I'll draw four names at random and each of those four people will get a free book! Though you can only reply once, you can reply no matter where you live (I will ship books overseas), or if you've won something from me in the past.

Books I'll be giving away this week are: Fly on the Wall by E. Lockhart, Violet by Design by Melissa Walker, The Sweet Far Thing by Libba Bray, and My Life: The Musical by Maryrose Wood.

And congrats to last week's winners: Tasha, Bohae, Lucy, and Anidori-Isilee!

I loved Atonement. It was so beautiful and heartbreaking. I really want to see Juno I have a feeling that when I see it it's going to be one of my favs.

The best movies I've seen lately were Martian Child, the Nancy Drew movie, Sydney White, and The Spiderwick Chronicles. All were beyond awesome and I think you would really enjoy them.

I just watched "Lords of Dogtown" the other day, which I re-fell in love with. But I'd have to say that "Into the Wild" was pretty amazing. If you haven't seen it, you definitely should. But Emile Hirsch is love.

I really liked Juno. Waitress, with Nathan Fillion and Keri Russell, is waiting for me to watch it, and I'm really excited about it - it looks so good.

Have you seen Ratatoulille? It's really quite brilliant... the animation, script, voice-acting, everything is incredible. It's also got an inspiring story for aspiring artists of any kind. :)

I haven't been out to the movies in a while, but I (might) watch Jumper tomorrow with some friends.

I also enjoyed National Treasure: Book of Secrets... :)

I loved "Atonement", too. A very good adaptation and beautiful movie.

And "Definitely, Maybe" was very good too.

Hmmm... I watched The Orphange in January, and that's the best movie I've seen in a while...

The last movie I've seen was Vantage Point, it was very interesting. I loved all the plot twists, the movie really kept you guessing all the way through.

I really enjoyed the movie 'Juno'. If you're up for a good laugh, you should definitely go see it.

I actually saw Penelope last Saturday and I have to agree with you, I know the movie didn't get good reviews, but I loved it. It was cute and a mood lifting movie, plus who couldn't like "Max" (played by the awesome James McAvoy)???

It's awesome how you're giving away those books: I recently read Fly on the Wall, and I was so impressed ^_^.

I agree with others that Juno was a great movie. I actually saw Charlie Bartlett recently though, and I loved it. It was funny but sad and emotional as well. It was a good one.

Man, I haven't seen very many movies lately. Definitely not any new ones. I watched Closer on DVD and The Hit Man in theatres (but that was back on Thanksgiving) and between the two I liked The Hit Man better.

Thanks for offering such a generous contest.

The Other Boleyn Girl. OHMYGOSH it was such a good movie. Well, how could it not have been? The book was awesome, too. :]

Oh my...I've been trying to share this movie with someone at my job for the past week but all they've done is shrug their shoulders and nod...BUT..if you haven't seen "La Vie En Rose," You must you must you must!! It is beautiful, touching, well acted and leaves you with an excuse to want to escape to a Paris...

Best movie. "La Vie End Rose" is the coolest one you will ever watch. I love it! Simply magnificent!

Once is the best movie I've seen in a long, long time. I can't stop raving about it.

I watched August Rush recently, and P.S. I Love You. August Rush was amazing, and P.S. I Love You was a cute movie, though it didn't quite live up the expectations I had for it. Still cute, though!

The best movies I've seen lately would be Why Did I Get Married? and National Treasure 2. Can't wait to see them again!

Lets see the last two movies I saw in theaters and loved were Juno and Enchanted. Ellen Paige and Amy Adams are adorable!

Juno isn't just funny it sends a great message and its also a bit sad. Its just such a great movie.

Enchanted is just amazing, I love Disney movies, still. lol

I recently saw Jumper and though I was annoyed by a couple parts, the movie itself was really good and I would definitely recommend you see it at least once.

I saw Juno and it was funny. I love the song she sings.

The last movie I saw was The Devil Wears Prada and 30 Days of Night. I love The Devil Wears Prada, I have a weakness for it. I really liked 30 Days of Night, it was weird in parts and good in others.

I'd definitely have to say Juno as well!
I saw 'Lars and The Real Girl', and thought it was really funny and sad. And it has Ryan Gosling in it! :)
'Bella' is also a really good movie. It won the coveted People's Choice Award at the Toronto Film Festival!
I know this is older but if you haven't seen 'Life is Beautiful (La Vita E Bella)' you definitely should! Or even rewatch it! :D

My favorite movie that I've seen recently was definitely Step Up 2. Robert Hoffman is really hot. I loved it and the dance scenes were awesome, even thought I couldn't dance if my life depended on it.

Also, Juno and Sweeney Todd were awesome! I liked them a lot too.
