    I've been looking around, but I'd love some recommendations from some of my fellow members here at BHW.

    I'm looking for free/premium wordpress themes and plugins.

    Plugins you Should be using Are :
    * Sexy Bookmarks
    *All in one SEO
    * Google Sitemap
    *Post Ratings
    *Wp Thumbie

    And Yeah, These would do it pretty Fine!! :) And FreshLife theme is A Good Go!! $30 For License!

    And Regarging Adsense, Dont Use a Plugin to Place it! Insert it editing the Template Files, So We get it where ever we want it to be!! Drop Me a PM incase !!

    IMO, Thesis is always a good theme to use, regardless of application.

    And as said above, Google XML Sitemap is a great plugin. Using Thesis, all-in-one isn't really necessary.

    Thanks for the replies. Both of those themes look pretty good. Though one is certainly alot more expensive that the other.

    I was wondering if any one here has any experience with PlatformPro from http://www.pagelines.com/ ? It looks pretty nice though its rather pricey.

    Any other ideas for themes built specifically for a movie review site? I found one on google yesterday. They had a paid ad for it. I can't find the ad now tho.. Woke up this morning and had to reinstall win7 after an update. RawwR! Then it took me forever to get my wireless card working.. Pissed me off a bit lol. Now I'm drinking vodka. lol!

    I've used Pagelines' White House theme before; never this PlatformPro, though. My experience with Pagelines was great, loved the structure and they have relatively good support. I don't think you can go wrong with them.

    As for Thesis, you can find some sources here to "use" it for free to see if it will work for you before dumping a bunch of cash on it.

    I ended up going with the theme here: http://www.theme-junkie.com/themes/fashionpro/
    Seems pretty nice, just need to change the background and throw up a logo. Automatically creates menus when you create catagories which is pretty nice. & it was only 20 bucks. :)

    So thanks for the advice everyone!
