I really wanted to see the sixth sense but my gf at the time saw it and spoiled the big ending twist. After that I lost the desire to go see it. Then shyamalan made Signs and the Happening and I really lost interest in his movies.
Avatar was visually great but agree that overall it wasn't all that special. Probably still worth a watch although I'd place it last amongst the movies you mentioned.

Agree that Shyamalan majorly disappointed after Sixth Sense.

A little off topic, but...did anyone else notice Mark Schlereth in a bit role in the recent Red Dawn remake?

Knew it was him. Had to wait for credits to verify.

Its one thing to watch the movies and say "meh not my thing"
That would make up a small percantage of people, but whatever

But to say they are crap when you havent even seen them yourself comes across as hipster douchiness

If your only knowledge of his directing are the batman movies, then you dont know what you are talking about if you think he sucks

I just re-checked the list of Nolan movies on imdb and can say with confidence that I enjoyed them all (except Following.....haven't seen that one). Needless to say, I'm anxiously awaiting Man of Steel. Summer blockbuster + Christopher Nolan = guaranteed Beantown opening weekend viewing.

I didn't care for Inception...p

....Batman 3 was probably too long, but was excellent.

I never said Nolan sucks, I said I didn't like his film making style. I liked the Batman triligy even though the final chapter was a massive letdown. My issue is he has a pretentious I'm smarter than everyone else style that I don't care to see. He is the Bill Belichick of movie making.

No, you pretty much said he sucks in the previous 3 posts.

And for those that thought Step brothers was hilarious, it had a few scenes that were really good. The interviews were pretty far out there but it just was too far in between other great scenes.

I have missed a ton the last 11 years since I have had kids. Before that, only Fatal Attraction comes to mind.

I love slow, deep movies though, that most younger people (and my Wife) can not handle. I loved Heat, Unforgiven, Lincoln, Usual Suspects type movies. I like movies that do not follow a typical pace or plot.

I also love long series movies like Band of Brothers and the Pacific. The Pacific was so much harder to follow for most people, because there was no single Marine Unit who was at all the pivotal battles they wanted to feature. It made following the characters much harder than most people can take. I really appreciated the depth of it though.

I love war movies so things like Saving Private Ryan, Black Hawk Down, Platoon, Full Metal Jacket, The Thin Red Line, Apocalypse Now, The Hunt for Red October, and even the poorly done Zero Dark Thirty interest me in story lines.

Very good movie, and using David Bowie as Tesla was an interesting touch. The Illisionist with Edward Norton was made in the same year and is very good also.

Schindlers List is a top 10 movie IMHO. I can not think of any reason NOT to see that movie.

Oh, 3 good movies to have sex to while watching. You would think Snakes on the Plane doesn't fit but so many inuendos, it has to be listed.

So who is going to give us the Seinfeld Schindler's list episode?

Schnidlers list is great, but I am assuming most people have seen it

Cabin in the Woods is a movie I really like but is one of those movies where you either love it or hate it

That is another one that few people that I know have seen but I thought was quite enjoyable

I love war movies too but I was so disappointed with Saints & Soldiers - Airborn Creed this year. It wasn't nearly as good as the the 1st. The beach invasion on Saving Private Ryan was the ****. That was sooooo good. Also Enemy At The Gates is classic. I think I've watched that like 15 times now.

All 3 are good but Casino is not even close to being on the same level as the other 2. Those 2 are MUST see movies. I would say Schindler's List is one of the best 10 movies I've ever seen.

Just depends on what you like. I've got like 15 really close friends and we all think it's a frickin funny as hell. But you'll have to watch Dictator to see for yourself. I didn't think the previews were all that good and my friend talked me into renting it and I'm glad I did, was awesome.

Avatar is a movie that everybody says the special affects are amazing and that the rest of it is just ok. They're sorta telling the truth. Only the special affects are so frickin mind blowing good, the rest of it could be in Chinese and you would not care, that's how amazing the visually that movie is. It's not as if the rest of the movie was bad, it's just hard to hold a candle to it when the affects were as good as they were. Trust me, you'll be happy that you saw it, especially if you see it on a bad ass large widescreen with a good sound system. Dances with wolves, eh, decent movie but so very different from Avatar. Inception, I actually enjoyed it more the 2nd time. It was hard to follow it for some reason the 1st time but the 2nd time around I picked up on alot more of the details that are important. Was pretty good. Sixth Sense, I felt it was also decent, nothing special. It seemed better then it really was only because of the ending, you were just surprised a little. It was nothing epic. It was no Silence Of The Lambs or anything. Life of Pi was decent. I didn't feel it was a waste of my time but I wasn't too impressed either. Probably best described as a decent movie 1 time but nothing you will probably watch again. Decent special affects but nothing close to Avatar.

In a somewhat similar vein, I can't freaking wait for this one:

Using a magic show to rob a bank, interesting concept. Hopefully the movie is as good as the trailer suggests.
