Voyage of the Dawn Treader is way better (and more fun) than Prince Caspian.

I have never seen a Narnia movie. Not really an unpopular opinion, but there ya go.

Also, I feel like I am the only one who likes 30 Days of Night. Probably my favorite vampire movie (with The Lost Boys in a close second; and I don't know of many people who like that one either.)

Also, on a completely unrelated side-note, I think I like The Temple of Doom more than The Last Crusade.

Oh, and Dead Poets Society was a complete bust. Ugh. Just saw it a week ago, and I hated it.

I couldn't get through Godfather the first time (and the second time, and the third time) and I can't get through Godfather Part II. It's a bore fest.
Maybe is because I'm not american, I don't know, but what happens is totally uninteresting to me. I'm like-- I don't care if a character dies or not, maybe they should all die and be done with it.

I think Peter Jackson's King Kong (while about a half hour too long) is really underrated. It's got top-notch special effects that still look great 7 years later. And how can you not love this?

King Kong is a fine movie. It's just too freaking long, much like all of PJ's movies.

This! I don't know why everyone seems to hate this film. I actually had zero problem with the length, and I loved pretty much every character subplot. And yeah, the effects were really good, and I tend not to notice that kind of stuff.

it was also that last time I recall jack black actually turning in a legitimate performance. He actually CAN act, he just keeps making sh** like Gulliver's Travels.

King Kong is a very flawed movie that still makes me weep uncontrollably.

I'm not a fan either. I tried once to get through the first one and fell asleep, managed to stay awake on the second attempt and have absolutely no desire to watch the sequels.

I fell asleep watching King Kong. Only one of about two movies that I've actually fallen asleep too.

The other was Madagascar 2.

Argo is not the BP frontrunner that many claim it to be. It's nothing special. Just a very well made film.

I still haven't seen that. It is still sitting on the DVR. I wish the Narnia movies would've caught on a little better than they did, but obviously I didnt do my part if I never saw the last one.

I really like 30 Days of Night, too. I can't buy it, though, because it creeped my wife out so bad that she refused to even have it in the house.

Also, Temple of Doom might be my favorite, maybe because my brothers and I watched it so much as kids. We were just obsessed with the heart ripping scene and stuff like that.

In a weaker year, it could've walked away with it. I think it's a better film than most of the recent Best Picture winners. But in this case, Les Miserables is the 800 pound gorilla to deal with.

Life of Pi also, I liked Argo, but I thought Life of Pie was just a better film.

30 Days of Night is a terrific film. I hate the sequel, however, with a passion.

Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows is better than its precursor.

I liked Life of Pi too. It broke new ground with 3D. But I wouldn't consider it worthy of Best Picture. A lot of it was just Cast Away with a tiger as Wilson.

I still find it hilarious when people say that the dark knight rises should be nominated for BP. I mean, yeah, it was good, but the script problems alone invalidate it.

except avatar was nominated, thus invalidating your argument. oscars are a joke anyway.

while having a derivative story the writing in Avatar wasn't that bad, also, that film featured revolutionary film making techniques that at least earned it a nomination (and I'm saying this all as somebody who doesn't particularly like avatar).

I knew as soon as I saw it that it wasn't getting a nomination. A great movie, sure, but it wasn't the game changer that TDK was.

It's just really not a great movie. After the setup of the first two, I expected better. It's not a bad movie, but not a great one either.

That's pretty much how I feel about it. All the hype leading up to it, and after seeing it I just kinda went "That was it?"

Indeed.

On a side note, am I the only one who doesn't particularly like Stanley Kubrick's The Shining? I think reading the book ruined it for me (I loved the book, and I felt that the movie was just way too different).

I'm not a particular fan of Kubrick to be honest, my favorite movie by him is probably Doctor Strangelove.
