What about Woody Allen? You'll have some really good ones, some stinkers, some funny, some dramatic. He always has excellent ensemble casts. He has tried lots of different things: fantasy, darker dramas, realism, even a musical. You don't have to go in order either. But anyhow, he has a huge oeuvre!

10. Tower Heist (2.5) It's watchable. I expected it to be the worst thing ever, and it wasn't at least that.
11. In Time (3) Fantastic sci-fi premise, terrible execution. Sasha Pivavarova (sp?) makes a 1 second cameo with no lines, so better to YouTube that. The dialogue was atrocious. Good-looking cast, because in this "dystopia", everyone has to look 25 years old . Justin Timberlake is not a good actor and that doesn't make for a good leading man. Even Amanda Seyfried, who I recognize is talented enough, couldn't carry off the bad script.

i can't believe how deceiving in all its simplicity A Better Life was. the plot was simple and straightforward enough, then next thing i know i was weeping like a baby what a moving film, i hope Demian Bichir wins Best Actor, if not Jean Dujardin.

26-Alice in Wonderland (2010) -Rewatch-
What can I say? Iīm a big Burton fan, he can do no wrong in my eyes
Great customs by Colleen Atwood, Iīm looking forward to see more of her work in Dark Shadows and Snow White and the Huntsman.



27-The Artist (2011)
I had reservations with this movie because all the hype but from the very beginning to the very end I was pleased with it, not a dull moment. The actors walked the fine line between overacting and doing just the right amount of acting to express emotions without the help the spoken word brings, I think itīs hard to emote without the help of tone. And in this day and age I think itīs even harder to make something so enjoyable without the help and distractions of FXs and 3D, the movie bares down to cinema basics and it works beautifully.
I think this might become one of my favorite movies, I love the dressing room scene with Berenice (who steals the movie!)

I've been so terrible about watching movies!
I just watched the entire first season of Downton Abbey though, so that took up some of my time :p

And, I have a confession to make... I don't think I've ever seen an Audrey Hepburn film
I may have to remedy that this year.

^I've only seen two Audrey Hepburn films and I didn't like one of them. I won't say which one it was, because people always get upset when I say it.

That's why I've been reluctant to watch it..I'm on an Oscar's challenge of my own so this year at least I know what they'll be talking about at the ceremony instead of just watching the red carpet, but I'm afraid I'll cry my eyes out with that movie...

20. Die Hard 3...it was my first time seeing this one. It's not as great as the first two, but it's also not as bad as I was expecting it to be.

Breakfast at Tiffany's? This should be a safe place for all unpopular movie opinions!

^Completely agree. We should be able to rant about whatever movies we loathed or movies that we loved on this thread. And Sobriquet87, if it was Breakfast at Tiffany's that you disliked, that's totally fine. Personally, I love the movie but I can see why it might not be everyone's cup of tea.
