Upon finally seeing The Exorcist, I was underwhelmed.
Maybe because it's been built up too much, maybe because I've heard so much about it/seen pop culture references that I knew exactly how it went, I dunno... It just 'didn't do it' for me.

Do you think you have any Film opinion(s) that could be considered unpopular or even 'controversial'?
I watched Chernobyl Diaries the other night, given I've A) A fascination of that episode in Ukraine's history and B) I love a good horror flick.
However, despite almost the entirety of the world hating it, I thought it was fantastic. Its a film that goes to show you don't need a budget as large as a small country's GDP to make a good film.
Furthermore, a great many people were up in arms against the film, it raised a lot of controversy due to its depiction of 'mutated' people and animals within Pripyat. I don't believe this was the case at all, I've met several Chernobyl survivors and, though I wasn't aware of this film at the time, discussed the open media on the area and how it is often depicted and they said, if anything, such media formats bring attention to the worst nuclear disaster in a non-war footing.
But yeah, dispite it being an unpopular (both morally and crtically), I thought it was fantastic.
- Last five Harry Potter films (including DH part 1 and 2) we're awful
- I thought The Notebook was a bit boring (I usually love romance movies)
- Keanu Reeves isn't THAT bad of an actor like everyone says
- I didnt like Black Swan, I thought it was depressing
- The Hangover ISN'T the funniest film in the world
- Rosie's scenes in Tranformers 3 were the cringiest movie scenes I have ever seen
I thought the new avengers movie was stupidly overrated. I honestly was really dissapointed with it and felt like it wz a waste of money. I do love some of the marvel films but this film had a terrible plot and was purely based on the cgi/action side of things. Didn't do anything for me whatsoever. Shame though, the concept was great, it was just executed terribly.
Yeah, same. Dire excuse for a film. It's just a load of blue people in the middle of some fictional planet walking around jungles, but because James Cameron directed it and it had a big budget and 'incredible' graphics, everyone jumped on the bandwagon.
I was bored ****less after ten minutes if I'm honest.
