I’m proud to say I haven’t seen any of ‘em.

Anyone see “Get Low” with Robert Duvall and Bill Murray?

Terrific film.

The Last Song not only features the "acting" of Miley Cyrus, it is not only based on a novel by Nicholas Sparks - but it was based on a novel written by Nicholas Sparks specifically for Miley Cyrus.

It's not a "movie" but some sort of felony.

Me neither. The only movies I’ve seen so far this year are SALT, THE EXPENDABLES, SHUTTER ISLAND, and INCEPTION. INCEPTION was awesome. The other three were pretty okay too.

I disagree with number 5...Grown ups was fantastic. I went twice with the family. It was a very family value show....some jokes were adult but overall cute movie.

Can’t say I’ve seen any of those. But I did see SALT with Angelina “10 pound lips” Jolie and it was easily the worst flic I’ve seen in years.

Can’t comment, have never seen any of them. As a matter of fact the only first run movies I ever see are for kids. Don’t ask me what the titles are, I can’t remember. The good news is “Kelly’s Heros” and “Josie Wales” is always in reruns on some channel.

One of the best has to be “Despicable Me”, if for no other reason that it’s the source of my company CEO’s new nickname. Everyone calls him Gru now.

Seen one - Bounty Hunter. It rightly deserves to be in the top ten. Even its actors were struggling with boredom throughout the movie...

I absolutely hated Inception... IMO, it was a case of : The Emperor’s New Clothes. I think it should be added to the worst of list. Just my opinion, of course.

I want to add Date Night. I rarely watch movies and haven’t been to a theater in years but I watch The Office and like Steve Carell so I bought this movie from on demand ( thank goodness I only paid 4.99) Tina Fey is NOT funny. At all. Has nothing to do with the Palin skit ( nor do I watch SNL) she is just an untalented blah actress. Carell wasn’t much better but that’s because the writing also s*cked.

I do want to see The Expendables with Stallone and that hunk
Jason Statham but I’ll wait for on demand.

I saw both Grown Ups and Furry Vengeance, both at bargain matinees. Not too bad, though I don’t know if I would have paid full price. One attraction for me was both were filmed in the area I live and I was curious...

On Saturday I was at my yearly music festival in Essex MA
at Centennial Grove/Chebacco Lake. The smaller stage was right next to the “Lake House” in “Grown Ups” and it was where several characters goofed around, while the main stage
was a dancehall/gazebo seen in the background of the
basketball game at the end. (Food was available from
a small building next to it which was labeled “The
Amoskeag Snack Shack” in the film.)

No way was ‘Clash of the Titans” worse than ‘Jonah Hex’ or the absolute worst movie ‘Twilight:Eclipse’.

Inception is going to be a classic. Christopher Nolan is a brilliant film maker (Memento was great. Dark Knight was a bit overrated).

I saw Inception

Perhaps you can explain it to me and the rest of the world.
A very forgettable movie and plot.
Don’t much like walking out of a movie and wondering about
what I just saw.

I haven’t seen a real uplifting movie since Seabiscuit.

“Josey Wales is my favorie Western of all time.”

Would normally agree with you, but have you forgotten “The Unforgiven”? That was one gritty western. Just like the novels. I always hated how a John Wayne movie always had to have some teenie bopper in it. It always ruined a great story.

Interesting. You are the first person I know of that didn’t love Inception. I’m interested to know what it was you didn’t like.

For me it was the best movie of the year.

I loved that move also! I also went to see "Ramona and Beezes" with my niece...it was sweet and made me tear up!

"The good news is “Kelly’s Heros” and “Josie Wales” is always in reruns on some channel."

And AMC now has "John Wayne Saturday" - they run only John Wayne movies all day and night on Saturday. That's pretty good. I've got to admit, I haven't seen a "good" movie out of Hollywood since "The Dark Knight". A few watchable ones (ie. I sat through the whole thing") but mostly absolute garbage.

“The Losers” is one of the best action flicks in a long time. Must see for all.

Unforgiven was excellent, but a bit too depressing for me.

Great performances by everyone, though. Eastwood, Hackman, Morgan Freeman, Richard Harris.

Still sticking with Josey.

Clash of the Titans was the only one on the list that I’ve seen, and I was disappointed. I got the impression that Liam Neeson only took the part because he must’ve had some bills to pay. It was an uncharacteristically uninspired performance on his part.

“And AMC now has “John Wayne Saturday” - they run only John Wayne movies all day and night on Saturday.”

Would love to see “The Searchers” again. Great book and good movie. Because of PC it might just disappear like “Song of the South”.

I was pretty disappointed by Salt.

Too many plot holes. I can suspend disbelief as well as anyone, but the plot points were so far from the bounds of credulity that I just couldn't manage it.

Add “Date Night” to this list. Gruesome. And Steve Carrell thinks he’s going to have a career after “The Office?”

Try The Searchers. I don’t recall a teeny bopper messing up that one at all. A properly grim story and Wayne as his grimmest.

I’ve not been to the cinema once this year, and the last movie I saw I think was Clint Eastwood’s.

I’d put The Expendables on the list. Simplistic script, overall lack of artistry, absurdly brutal, and camera work in the fight/battle scenes that were so tight that the action came off as merely chaotic and difficult to follow.

Apart from that, it’s the best Stallone-Statham-Li-Schwarzeneggar-Willis-Lundgren-Rourke team-up of the year.

“Unforgiven was excellent, but a bit too depressing for me.”

It was Clint’s most political movie ever made (pro individual rights - pro self defense). It universally annoyed the leftist and still it won an Oscar. Come on, that is the ultimate in your face statement to Hollywood and its party.

I share your assessment of Clash of the Titans.

That they not only didn't respect the source material, but actively disrespected it bothered me.

I just saw “Vampires Suck”, a parody explicitly targeting “Twilight”. I got the jokes, but still think it was a pretty horrible movie, certainly one of the worst I’ve seen this year.

Unfortunately, I have found all of the twilight movies passable.

See my post #30. Agree this was a pure western true to the novel. Great book BTW. When Wayne work with Ford the westerns were great. Later on, not so much.

The Searchers is the definitive post-war Western and Wayne at his finest. Of course, the definitive pre-war Western is Stagecoach, also featuring Wayne at his finest.

I would agree with that...I was pleasantly surprised by Robert Downey Jr.'s Sherlock Holmes, although I think technically that was a 2009 film.

Sort of, but you gotta remember that those movies were family entertainment back than and the filmmakers were trying to appeal to a broad audience. I don't think that including Ricky Nelson ruined Rio Bravo, though it would have been better without him.
