    I admit I'll still see it, but yea... not expecting much. I went to see Unknown with Liam Neeson because I considered it to be Taken 2 (before they announced a sequel to Taken). My God it was awful.

    I personally really liked Taken, but Taken 2 is essentially like The Hangover Part II... same format, same action scenes, same conclusion.

    I'm wanting to see Looper a lot more... which, at first, I considered to look really stupid. With the reviews it's been getting, it's impossible to pass on though.

    I got to see The Fellowship of the Ring with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra playing the music live. It was pretty awesome.

    I have never seen the LotR, nor do I really care to.

    Me and a puerto rican buddy who is now in prison decided to get blasted all day and watch every single LoTR movie consecutively. I would advise against that. And people seem so excited for the hobbit.. I don't get it.

    Best thing about the originals are the landscape/ORCS!!!! FOR DEH HORDE

    I am going to be shamed for the rest of my days by many of you here, but I proceed anyways...

    Star Wars and LotR suck.

    I like the.....actual first Star Wars films....

    but since we are admitting things....

    I think Quentin Tarantino is a terrible film maker, producer, director, etc. The only films of his I enjoy are Pulp Fiction and Res Dogs.

    He's overrated as hell... Inglorious Basterds was my favorite of his. I think Reservoir Dogs is super overrated. Good but nothing special.

    Really all of his movies are overrated IMO.

    QT is average

    Despise the Kill Bill movies.

    I heard they are making another...

    Pulp Fiction and Inglorious Basterds are excellent.

    Blasphemous. Inglourious Basterds will go down as a classic.

    When he's at his best, he is a great filmmaker.
