    I go to the movies very often, and have seen most of the movies in the theater this year, but felt that a lot of them were either a failed reproduction of a previous movie or a non-ending too long of a comedy icon_sad.gif

    My votes will have to go for: Midnight in Paris - woody allen
    I thought this movie was witty, funny, magical and poetic at the same time. Plus, the approach was very unique and the message being sent was very real!
    What do you guys think?
    Which do your votes go to?

    I used to go to the movies a lot, but so far, this year has been very disappointing and I hardly go anymore. Figures, that I didn't see my fav movie in a theater but on a plane:

    Super 8

    Great story, terrific actors, amazing action sequences.

    I thought Super 8 was an awful mishmash of "Goonies" meets "E.T" and was horribly predictable. Oh well.

    The moment in Rise of the Planet of the Apes when Caesar helps John Lithgow hold his fork properly was so unexpectedly beautiful and sensitive, especially if you know anyone with Alzheimer's. Plus the apes breaking out of their prisons was just visually eye-popping.

    Midnight in Paris made me want to fuck Hemingway, or at least the actor playing him.

    And I really liked the 1st half of Super 8 a lot.

    Hands down my favorite movie of the year is "Crazy Stupid Love".

    It has all the ingredients I love in a movie --- comedy (without being silly or sophomoric), a few surprises, great acting, a sexy hottie (in this case Ryan Gosling), a sweet love story, and a feel good ending.

    I really liked Gun Hill Road. I love indie movies.

    Surprisingly, I liked Thor. I thought that it would be a pos, but it wasn't.

    Indeed, Hemingway (Corey stoll) was hot, hehehe, and the women made me wanna turn straight again, a feeling I don't usually get unless I see pictures of Monica Bellucci <3<3<3

    Not too many good movies came out this year, but I really enjoyed Bridesmaids and especially The Help!

    Best movie of the year so far: Super 8 (which, for the record, is SUPPOSED to remind you of Goonies, ET and other Spielberg flicks... that's the point of an homage)

    But gotta admit, it hasn't been a stellar year for movies.

    I love almost everything JJ Abrams does. He's a genius!

    Well, yes, I figured out the intent. I didn't find it all that nostalgic I guess. It just felt formulaic and cliched to me. I wanted my two hours and $10 back for that piece of crap.

    Horrible Bosses nearly had my in tears from laughing so hard. I haven't had a laugh like that in a long time! Captain America was both done well (for a Marvel movie), and featured a painfully sexy Chris Evans. Two great reasons to watch it, if you ask me.

    I really want to watch Super 8, though. I heard it was really well-done. Though, I'm starting to wonder if I should take that with a grain of salt.

    He needed his chest hair. Would have been PERFECT!

    IT WAS!

    The overall story did seem a bit cliche, but that was sort of the intention, and it was done very well. It's like a modern day ET.

    It also had fantastic production value, and quite a number of laughs! Except for when they were filming themselves, the actors were very natural, and didn't even seem to be acting!

    Oh, and the train derailment... Epic!

    So summary:

    Harry potter: how could I forget? it was excellent
    Super 8: good overall and NO, the end was not predictable
    Transformers: Too much noise, ongoing non-stop action that the action factor was lost
    Bridesmaids: very funny. The beginning was better than the end - too long though
    Crazy stupid love: too many cliche situations; script is weak
    Drive: How many words Ryan Gosling had to say in this movie? lol...it was good overall though
    Thor: I don't picture natalie portman in the cast - sorry :-(

    Seriously though, this movie needs its own thread here on RJ - I've watched it twice (once in the cinemas) and it does NOT disappoint icon_cool.gif
