    Default This years movies....

    This years movies seems to have sulked exponentially......

    I've hardly felt the need to got to the cinema at all. With the exception of the latest Harry Potter there has been very little.

    I didn't make it to Coco before Channel - but that is the other film I quite fancies.

    Now Christams is upon us and there are a few that I'll go and see...

    Sherlock homes
    St. Trinian's
    Nine

    And eventually Alice, but I doubt that is released until next year....

    Anyone else think this years movie releases SULKED?

    It seemed okay. Stand outs for me this year were Avatar and Star Trek, not to mention District 9.

    My theory is that Hollywood in general is making less good movies due to things like target marketing and excessive remakes. The last several years have been pretty meh in terms of movies.

    I don't know if there have been any Great movies this year but I enjoyed:

    Funny People (outstanding)
    Adventureland
    State of Play
    Inglourious Basterds (one of the better Tarantino flicks IMO)

    I'd still like to see District 9 and Up, which I am told is amazing.

    Sherlock Holmes looks good. Robert Downey, Jr. is worth the price of admission.

    There has been a load of remakes in the last few years, I'm hoping it gets better next year or maybe I've just grown out of movies... which I don't beleive

    There are fantastic movies almost every year. You just have to know where to look.

    The Messenger
    Julie and Julia
    Inglorious Bastards
    Up In The Air
    Crazy Heart
    Precious
    Even Star Trek ended up bneing one of my favorites. I could do without there being another apocalyptic/aliens imprisoned on earth/remake of yet another horror movie ever again in my lifetime. I realize they are generally big hits at the box office but...please stop now.
    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.

    The remake is I guess just brining the old versions up to date... lets face it the 70/80s movies were not masively well made... all that cardboard cut out stuff.....

    I've not seen any of the above... I might try and rent them...

    Really looking forward to Sherlock Homes (and hopefully more movies to get me going next year)

    You won't find most of those on DVD just yet.

    yea, they will hit cable first, I think "Julie and Julia" just finished on the cinema, the "The Messenger" sounds good.

    Actually I saw the Reader which was good this year. So there has been a a few movies, BUT normally there are loads I want to see and it seems this year there was few and far between......

    My locla cincema don't always get the films I'd see by choice, more block buster.... but normally there are enough of interest....

    Maybe Jonny Depp is having a year off

    Inglourious Basterds, obviously.

    Why hasn't anyone mentionned Brüno yet?
    I was sitting outside the classroom waiting to go in, and I saw an airplane hit the tower. The TV was obviously on. I used to fly myself and I said, "There's one terrible pilot."

    If you don't agree about my MBTI type, you can complain about it here. I've had plenty of people telling me I'm something else, in my reputation box. That's annoying.
