Figured I post this here for anyone interested: My year-end recap of all the movies I saw from worst to best, my picks for the Oscars, biggest surprises/disappointments, etc.

I watched 237 films last year.

Too many to name.

That's always sweet and also reminds that I need to hit up this used bookstore near me to get some cheap DVD's now that I have a bit of extra cash.

You're one of those "Man of Steel was worse than cancer" people?

No, I thought it was a okay action film. The first 45 minutes or so were so fucking boring then it turned into "Micheal Bay Presents : Superman". Fun to watch but just decent.

I thought the backlash against it was way more annoying than the flaws in the actual movie. All those people who thought it was too "gritty" and dark would have bitched just as much as if they would have made him the ultra-virtuous boy scout from comics, I guarantee it.

Yeah I had no problems with how they made the story and everything ro the angle going around it, I just thought that one half was a over the top action scene and the other half was a boring story.

Well maybe not quite that bad;) I thought it was one of the worst superhero movies I've ever seen. Action scenes were repetitive and horribly-shot (which shocked me since Zach Snyder is typically brilliant with action scenes), script was utter shit and the acting from everyone not named Kevin Costner, Diane Lane or Amy Adams (and only Costner was above serviceable imo) was awful. As soon as Zod let out that overblown scream 15 minutes in, I knew it was doomed.

:confused: I usually like Zack Snyder movies (except 300), but I always hate his stupid slow-motion action scenes.

See I love his slow-mo action scenes. I just really like how they capture all the action is captured opposed to the shaky-cam, quick-cut shit that has become so popular of late.

I've seen The Spectacular Now and Inside Llewyn Davis in the past week and they were two of the best films of the year(especially The Spectacular Now, which should go down as a coming-of-age teen movie classic imo.)

Good to hear as I will be seeing both soon.

I watched about 5, screeners borrowed from my roommate. Most I've watched in about 20 years. The Butler sucked. Captain Phillips and American Hustle were OK.
