    For me i'd say Easy A, and Scott Pilgrim.

    But those were this year. and I'm wondering about the thousands over the years that i've missed.

    So.

    O right, thanks LocoRoco,

    u could watch Megamind as well, it's kind a fun movie, at least it's refreshing to see the point of view from a villian [​IMG]

    off topic:
    well, maybe to u, but after watching avatar, all i felt from the movie was that feeling that didn't i watch this before?? , okay fine, without all those hair intercourse stuff, but the overall story still feels like a deja vu to me.

    cronenberg's masterpiece:

    "Videodrome" is a must see, especially if you like horror done right minus the stupidity of "suspense/horror" flicks like "Saw".

    It is truly a cult classic 25 years ahead of its time!

    For two recent ones, my parents have both said that Salt and Resident Evil Afterlife are at least worth seeing. (Salt being "very good" and Resident Evil being "OK").

    I actually just saw Salt myself (above I posted that my parents had seen it) and it's actually much better than I'd presumed. Definitely worth checking out!
