I'm with you BeduinLeo....The 2012 movie is the worst form of garbage.

This kind of movie should not only show you that Hollywood movies are bad, but that actors in the Hollywood system are bad. John Cusack, a man who chooses interesting movies often, took that cheque...Because someone gave him a huge amount of money. Chiwetel Ejiofor....who has done small movies that everyone loved....Did this movie. Someone threw money at him and he took it.

....and the rest of what I wrote....Not important.

Ah - come on, Derek, tell us how you really feel.

Sorry - haven't seen the movie and won't until it's out on DVD. If it's really that bad, at least I can sit in my own living room and have a drink to numb the pain while watching it. Oh, and didn't spend the $25 at the theater for seats and snacks.

We just watched "Milk" with Sean Penn. Neither of us are Sean Penn fans in the slightest, but this was very well done. I expected less than what I got. Penn portrays Harvey Milk - a gay rights activist during the 1970s who also took on several other equal rights causes. Milk was elected to public office in California which made history at the time. Sadly, so did his murder. Personally, I was impressed with the movie, Penn's ability to portray the character with empathy and still not make it a dramatic fluff piece. (Again, just me.)

My favourite film, the one I'd watch if I could only watch one film that I'd already seen before I died, is The Sting. Yeah, I know it's not as cool as Butch Cassidy, but it ends more happily!

Good call on the the Sting. A great movie, with a terrific cast behind Redford and Newman. And anything with Robert Shaw is great.

I loved that film!

I've recently watched My Sister's Keeper which was very good, and The Savages which I also really enjoyed- great performance from Philip Seymour Hoffman.

Going now for the best film I've seen in 2009.... The Boat That Rocked. Just brilliant.
