    You remember your first cinema film? I have no idea what mine was. I know I saw The World is Not Enough in 1999 when I was 9. I can't remember a film before that though. I remember going to the 3D IMAX as a kid though probably before that.
    Little Mermaid was definitely my first cinema memory, I passed it by my mum and she agreed. It came out when I was 2 yrs 3 months old so its about right, although I'm not sure if I saw it when it first came out or at one of those Saturday kids club things or some other rerun, so I may have been nearer 3. I remember being REALLY scared of Ursala, that climax is quite intense for a little kid!

    I remember quite a few of my childhood cinema experiences.
    Rescuers Down Under at 3
    Beauty and the Beast at 4
    Aladdin at 5 (the only film that my dad took me to see as a kid).
    Jurassic Park at 6 (the theatre was REALLY loud so I got a headache and had to leave in the brachiosaur sneezing scene, then got my parents to take me a second time so I could see the whole thing)
    Lion King at 7 (saw it on holiday at Disneyworld Orlando, then saw it again when it came out in the UK )


    The early 90s were a great time to be a kid!

    Haha yea, I asked my dad and he said I definitely went to the cinema and saw some Disney films as a kid, but again can't pin down the exact film.

    And you are so right. I remember going to like Ikea or other similar mega stores and my mum leaving me and my brother in the play zone which had a small cinema showing Junglebook, Lion King, etc.

    I'd been taken by my mum to see various cartoons and stuff that I don't remember before this, but I regard Titanic as my first proper cinema experience when I was eight. I remember being really chuffed that I'd gotten into a 12 and then I remember my head being blown off by the epicness of it. The second half of the film on a big screen is crazy.

    I don't know if I went before but my earliest memory of going to the cinema was going to see Chicken Run when I was 10. I remember embarrassing my mom by mentioning "man's sperm and woman's eggs" to the bloke at the ticket counter. I can't remember why, I think I'd read just read something about it.

    I seem to remember when discussing this last year, I suggested Shame and was told that it wouldn't be counted as a 2011 film because of its UK release date; would it be eligible this year? Though I'm not sure it would be allowed on an official TSR poll anyway. :o: What about foreign films? Once Upon a Time in Anatolia was my favourite film that I've seen in the cinema this year. What about documentaries, would they count? :holmes:

    Ta, I'll take these into account! As much as foreign films and documentaries would be desirable, given this poll is going to end up being a popularity poll, it might be best to go for the mainstream options, or at least the really popular foreign films or documentaries that users will have likely seen and liked (this is why The Raid is giving me a problem in terms of gauging popularity). Otherwise it becomes a poll of our good taste in film at the expense of omitting whatever the general TSR userbase would have wanted.

    We're squeezed enough at it is as well.

    That probably depends on how much interest/push there is for it. :beard: Phalanges, who worked tirelessly, on the previous project (organising everything on it) sadly resigned from the mod team, and I don't think he's going to be too active on TSR.

    :pierre: :lol: Yeah, that's pretty much what I thought. Oh well.

    Might be useful to keep an eye on the box office results, then. Though you seem to have pretty much covered the films on the top of that list.

    There are a couple of people who have expressed an interest in helping out/running it, just so you know. But it's a pretty massive programme, so I'd agree with you that we should wait for more of a push before we get about it.



    In other news, I got gifted The Lord of the Rings (standard versions), War Horse and Johnny English: Reborn yesterday.

    JGL really shouldn't be playing Batman. His character has almost zero training in hand to hand combat and was taken down by a Gordon who was pretty ****ed up.

    JGL does not have the financial backing that Bruce had either, which is one of the major reasons why Batman could exist.

    It will be even worse if they reboot JGL as Bruce :lolwut:

    Not particularly surprised. A franchise is a franchise is a franchise - we should have seen it coming after the scene towards then end in The Dark Knight Rises.

    Regarding training, I suppose the Justice League movie could be several years after TDKR, and - whatsisname... Blake? - could have been training intensively in that period. But it would still be a very odd Batman, given that all the dynamics have been changed by the conclusion (no Alfred, a Gordon who is probably in the know - or incredibly stupid if he isn't - and so on).

    I'm surprised for a few reasons really. I thought that DC would have noticed that the exaggerated reality of Nolan/JGL's universe cannot have a Superman or any of the other more... exotic... characters of the Justice League.
    Using JGL means that the film will be compared to Nolans Batman even more than it was going to be. It should have strived for its own identity and a complete reboot.

    Also, can anyone imagine JGL standing next to the guy who plays Superman and looking at all like a physically imposing man? JGL is a very enjoyable actor but a huge, violent man is something he couldn't really pull off. He just doesn't look dangerous enough to fit into a 'super' world.

    The Master is an amazing movie. Certainly one of the best this year along with Skyfall and TDKR

    It also has one of best performances i have ever seen in a movie in very long time by Joaquin Phoenix.
