    I haven't seen enough bad films to make a full top ten (word of mouth is usually enough to keep me away), but I agree with the inclusion of This Means War, Savages and John Carter, and would throw Dark Shadows (awful above and beyond Burton's usual stale, 'quirky' touches) and Cloud Atlas (a gross simplification and misinterpretation of a reasonably complex book, and a bad film to boot) in there as well.

    If it were a list of the most 'whatever' films of the year then Amazing Spider-Man for sure. It's not outright bad, and the performances are uniformly solid, but it's just hard to care about.

    Anyway, recently seen:

    Flight - Good
    Skyfall - Good
    Killing them Softly - Proper good
    Killer Joe - Excellent

    I am tentative about this one. If it doesn't have Eisenberg and Emma in it I won't go cinema for it.

    Was it the cold and detached perspective on the loss of limb and life in a war? Have you watched Saving Private Ryan? It would evoke very similar feelings.

    On a personal level, the films I've had prolonged emotional impacts from were probably Million Dollar Baby (the frailty of human life and how quickly/easily it can be snatched away) and American History X (the pointlessness of living a life filled with hate). Holocaust films tend to hit all the right notes too.
    I Just watched Saving Private Ryan, great recommendation, absolute masterpiece. Only thing was is that i was baying for Upham's blood. I would've shot the pansy as soon as i knew he was a wet one, all he did was cost people their lives

    Haha I swear you pretty much watch every series I have ever watched!? I gave up on Covert Affairs at the start of season 3 though. Piper Perabo is hot.

    Finally saw The Hobbit. Put off seeing it partly because everyone was moaning about it, and partly because I didn't want to spend over 3 hours in a cinema over xmas. But I loved it. Thought it dealt with all the problems of the book magnificently, and Gollum was absolutely a jot to behold (Serkis MUST have earned an Oscar by now). My only criticism is I would've liked the giant fight to last a bit longer.


    So the question is: why the hell did everyone moan about it?

    Do you like Eyal? If so you shouldn't have, the season got better and better.

    Oh and I know! She is topless in Looper!

    He's cool, I like Oded Fehr. I always thought her and Auggie would have been a decent couple though.

    I watched a show called The Finder a while back (only had one season but it's a decent watch - would recommend), and the main girl in that resembles a dark haired Piper Perabo.

    Thanks that sounds cool.

    And yea, you should watch the third season at some point, really.

    I'll admit it was flawed but I still loved it through them, I guess I was just so enthralled by the Middle Earth world.

    I think one reason why many were disgruntled is that they expected it to be in the same vein as the Lord of the Rings series - Maybe the change in tone disappointed them, or maybe the lack of grand, epic battles and change in structure.

    Or maybe because he made 3 books into 3 movies and now 1 book into 3 movies?

    It's too long.

    Yes!

    Brilliant film. Zach Galifianakis (spelling) is supberb in it, I laughed a lot due to him even though it is a serious film really.

    Technically six books, that came in the form of three volumes.

    Yeah it is pretty long, which can be quite a put-off for the average cinema-goer.
    Personally I thought the time was well-spent.
    I guess as a film it was pretty flawed but I was just so happy to be in Middle-Earth that I didn't care about them at all.

    I've just watched Waltz With Bashir and Evil Dead II, both brilliant.
    Especially the former, loved how powerful and hard-hitting it was, how well presented and animated it was. Even the music was great, the film is surely a must-watch for anyone.
