    I did not like the movie version. I like the shorter skits.
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    I have to agree about this having been a pretty down year in film, actually. I usually go to the movies quite frequently, but the movies that have gotten me out to theaters have been few and far between. The ones I'd consider most memorable for the year are:

    Inglourious Basterds
    Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
    Star Trek
    Julie & Julia

    I plan to see Precious, Nine, and Up in the Air. But for us to be approaching award season, I'm surprised there's not more out there that looks appealing. Maybe there are some gems that slipped under my radar? I wonder if we're still seeing the impact of the writers' strike a couple of years ago.

    Star Trek was the best this year to me, being they successfully revived and updated an old franchise. I liked it better than any of the Star Trek movies to date.

    Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, got to the end of the movie and blurted out loud as the final scene faded to black. "But I don't get it!" The entire theater burst into laughter.

    Where the Wild Things Are? Still not sure about what I thought of it? It was well, ok.

    Inglourious Bastards? Didn't see it but sounds promising for DVD.

    The only two I can think of are Star Trek and Inglorious Basterds

    I seem to agree with OP to a point. Although there has been some good movies I think the ratio of good v. bad movies is pretty bad.

    I am not the person who puts much effort in planning to go to a movie. Often a movie catches my attention and when I make an effort to go see it, its gone or not playing at the hours I am at the movie house.

    Pretty disappointed with "A Christmas Carol" with Jim Carrey.

    I really liked Julie and Julia and was surprised by Star Trek. I was into it from the very beginning. I loved it! I've hated most of the other Trek movies.

    in a year where i've struggled to find movies I wanted to see - check out the weekend films....

    Nine = which is shaping up to be less inticing given below
    Nowhere man = John Lennon youth movie
    Sherlock Homes = Robert Downie Jr... yummy

    I must like movies way too much because i thought this year was a great movie year in comparison to other recent years :x
    Even some of the bad horror movies didn't make me feel like i wasted my life since they gave me a great laugh (except Molly Hartley which i downloaded).
