Any movies made in 2010 or 2011 (Since this is quite late for this) and discussions about these movies.

For example. I recently saw Black Swan and it was fantastic, and I've been meaning to see Somewhere.

So far an okay year for film.

Really avoid Expendables. I hated it when I saw it.

Extremely disappointing, although the writer was the one who wrote Doom, so I'm quite sure it would of failed.

On another topic.
Exit Through the Gift shop was a fantastic documentary, even if it was fake, to those who may of seen it.

J'adore aussi le sexe et les snuff movies
Je trouve que ce sont des purs moments de vie
Je ne me reconnais plus dans les gens
Je suis juste un cas désespérant
Et comme personne ne viendra me réclamer
Je terminerai comme un objet retrouvé

Havent seen much in cinema this year. Highlights were...

1. Invictus
2. Me & Orson Welles
3. the Expendables
4. My son, my son, what have ye done?
5. Piranha 3D
6. Amer
7. Cloudy with a chance of meatballs
8. the ghost writer
9. La Danse
10. She's out of my league

Redhaloguy: Avoid Somewhere...it's the most pretentious and empy piece of junk I've seen the past years. From the first shot it's obvious that it hasn't got anything new to say. It's ugly and boring.

I enjoyed the Expendables ending, which brought back so many memories of the ending of Commando, but that was about the only really good part. The dialogue was a mess, when we were getting the parts about character back stories and romances I could care less. It's action was good, but I feel that it was too modern for it to really be a completely nostalgic homage to eighties action films. I'm on the fence about it.

Inception I thought was a bit boring at some points, but the pay-off was great. The story was really interesting, the characters were all very interesting, and the action was really cool, really different. It was a great film.

Toy Story 3 I hated with a passion. The movie should have ended as they go into the trash burner because I really thought that it was boring, unfunny, and I just couldn't enjoy it as much as the two previous ones. Maybe it was the fact it really felt like every other computer animated kid movie. It's also how I felt about How To Train Your Dragon, it wasn't really funny and I just couldn't care less about any of the characters or the adventures they go on.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part One was so boring, it might as well have been called Harry Potter and the Two Hour Camping Trip. The Ministry of Magic scene I quite enjoyed, the rest was a mess. The movie tries to establish character but it's so hard to follow because Harry likes Ginny for some reason, now like Hermione, but Ron likes Hermione, and Ron being a [bleep] turns Hermione on. It made absolutely no sense and bored me.

Kick-Ass I at first thought was good, but looking back on it, it's really, really not good. I mean, the comedy was funny but I have to agree with most that the movie was so dark that you really couldn't laugh and you couldn't distinguish whether this was a comedy or an action movie. I know you can have a dark comedy, but this went waaaay overboard and it just was totally broken by that. The action scenes weren't very good, either. It just felt like one of those movies that is like "Look, we have violence. And comedy. And Nicholas Cage. And a girl with purple hair killing people!". It did not feel like a proper, decent movie.

Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World was favorite movie of the year. People complain because Scott is unlikable because he cheats on Nives, but I personally can relate to Scott, not in that sense, but in the sense that he meets his dream girl, and has to go through hell to get to her. And I can also relate to being a rocker/nerd who isn't the most socially well rounded. I mean, I can basically relate to the whole movie in some way or other. And it has some of the best action scenes in a movie this year.

Spy Next Door was pretty awful. I mean, Jackie Chan, you can't go wrong! But Billy Ray Cyrus and George Lopez make it go wrong. And kids. I mean, the movie isn't good in any sense of the word, and the only redeeming factor for me is the fact that Jackie Chan is in it.

Shrek 4ever After was the worst movie I've seen all year. Boring to the nth degree, unfunny, and a complete waste of time and money.

2010 was an alright year I guess. Not much to really see and talk about over the next few years though, and certainly no classics are coming out of it.

I rarely go to the theatre, mostly because it's too expensive and I don't want to pay $8.50+ for a movie that is mediocre.

I liked Black Swan and Shutter Island the most and I'm really looking forward to On the Road in 2011.

You were so right, Sofia tried to do exactly what she did in Lost in Translation and it just didn't work.. the ending just came out of nowhere. Otherwise I hated that film.

Recently saw Social Network.
They talked WAY too fast. It's crazy. Aaron Sorkin needs to calm down his writing.

Jesse Eisenberg was the only one I noticed who talked fast, but it seemed to be part of his character.

best movies i've seen this year are the town and shutter island

going the distance is an enjoyable feel good movie

inception is overrated

bruce willis needs to stop doing comedy

steve carrell isn't as funny as he thinks he is

i hope tom cruise starts making more films. he's a good actor who makes decent flicks and people are idiots for caring way too much about what he does in his personal life

and i learned that i hate this "actor" and his voice

My favorite movies of 2010 were Inception (movie of the year) and How To Train Your Dragon. Dreamworks really brought out all the stops and finally out-shined Pixar for once. And the main character is brilliantly voiced by Jay Baruchel. The guy in the picture above.

Other favorites of 2010 include Kick-Ass, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, The Social Network, Toy Story 3.

Definitely agree with this. He is awesome in action movies but he needs to stick to pure action/thriller instead of this comedy/action crap he's been doing.
