I think you are the first person I have seen/read that did not like this movie.

It is not supposed to be horror, at least not the "cheap scares" kind. It is very Hitchcokian in how it is all about the atmosphere, how it sets up the story as we discover Cole's secret. That is why it seems "slow".
Oh, and South Park.
Fringe
The Big Bang Theory
South Park
Game of Thrones
Sherlock

Yes, the only one still on my list compared to 8 months ago is Fringe.

Transformers 3 was a mediocre movie at best but the special effects were some of the best I have ever seen. Should win easily.
aoshi reviewed the movie The Searchers

"One of the best Westerns of all time"

Come on, anyone that loves Twilight must admit it is a guilty pleasure. Everyone has guilty pleasures, Twilight just happens to be a very popular one. But it IS extremely stupid, even embarrassing.
That pic is EPIC

My problem with the first one was precisely that it wasn't funny at all. I thought that with that "ensemble cast" I would laugh a little at least, but it was lame all the way through, almost painful to watch.

Adam Sandler might not be the best comedian of all time but he is usually funny. Even Kevin James manages a chuckle here and there sometimes. Yet even Chris Rock managed to be boring. What would possess them to think this is sequel worthy is beyond me.

Why? That movie was sh*t, one of his worst, which is saying a lot.

Star Trek is a franchise that does not need a Villain of the Week. Remember the original series? They didn't need one for every single episode. Even Star Trek IV shed the Villain of the Week requirement. They should write something original that has more to do with exploration and a problem that requires more brains than brawn to be solved.

@moviegeek @jimthar the first one was already the Khan story rehashed, it wasn't fresh storywise, just in terms of the look and dynamism.

I think if Khan is in this story, it won't be the Wrath of Khan redone but their first encounter redone (remember Kirk is still fresh out of the Academy).
This is the Lord of the Rings for TV series
I meant for* everyone
@bawnian-dexeus yep

@dan1 he's not from everyone, but since we were in the topic for guilty pleasures... :p

My top three Miyazaki films would be:

1. Princess Mononoke
2. Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind
3. Spirited Away

I was actually disappointed with My Neighbor Totoro. To be honest, the movie has no point whatsoever, it's just stuff happening. Sure, Miyazaki's magic is there, but that's about it. It's the first (and so far, only) Miyazaki film that I didn't like.
@dan1 I'm a big enough fan of Evanescence that I actually bought tickets to their concert in Puerto Rico last October.

Same thing with Yanni (the concert is in two weeks).
@ejk1 I am reading a trilogy of books (of which the first one is called "Leviathan") set in a steampunk alternate 1914 world, and while reading it I thought of Howl's Moving Castle.
