Yeah, I hated that movie - as well done as it was - simply because I was depressed for days after watching it. Depressing as ****!

i haven't actually watched the star wars series, but a friend of mine was hyping it up as the worst movie ever made. i wanted to see if his claim held water. after less than 20 minutes i had to concede that it did.

I also saw (500) Days of Summer this weekend. Was not impressed with that at all. It was decent for being a chick flick, but nothing I'd suggest.

Or The Happening. Worst movie in the last 5 years, hands down.

Last film I saw in a movie theater was Lord of the Rings: Return of the King. I loved it!

Shutter Island. It was pretty good and a little mind-bendy.

I somewhat enjoy the fact that what makes people hate Requiem for a Dream makes me love it.

Watched The Phantom Tollbooth last night, would have preferred to see it 40 years ago when it came out except I hadn't been born yet.

The Princess Bride

Best. Movie. Evar!

I decided to watch it with commentary in spots. I'd watch a scene sans commentary, then watch it again with commentary.
