Some people just think they're too cool for it, I guess. I thought it was fucking hilarious.

Moon (excellent psychological thriller)
Avatar (3D) (best eye candy of the year)
Zombieland (unexpectedly funny - this year's comedy runner-up)
District 9 (interesting FX, compelling main character, side order of politics)
Up (eye candy runner-up, cute story)
Duplicity (sleeper of the year - really snappy script, story, characters, humor - seriously recommended)
The Informant! (Damon was outstanding - compelling true story of an idiot who almost got away with murder...)
Traitor (better than I had expected - gritty spy / soldier drama)
Coraline (visually trippy, weird story, classic Tim Burton - but CGI)
Watchmen (superheroes behaving badly = good times )
Sherlock Holmes (Downey was awesome, Law was prety good, story was a bit weak)
I Love You, Man (funnier than I expected - Paul Rudd is pure comic gold to me)
Public Enemies (Bale plus Depp should have been AWESOME, but was just OK - weak script)
The Soloist (Downey plus Foxx should have been WAY AWESOME, but was just OK - weak script)
Nothing but the Truth (decent whistleblower-type drama, in the vein of The Insider)
The Taking of Pelham 123 (decent story, good villain, a bit formulaic, but not bad)
Paranormal Activity (like Blair Witch, but in somebody's house - somehow I didn't hate it, though)
State of Play (forgettable - because I did - but somehow I remember this being pretty OK)
Orphan (creepy main character, weird plot twist, decent acting - not bad)
Drag Me To Hell (surprising good for what it was - this was another sleeper)

X-Men Origins: Wolverine
Monsters vs. Aliens
Terminator: Salvation

Haha I liked Idiocracy. It was stupid, but that was pretty much the whole point.

The original TV series is much better.

This, however, I enjoyed more than the original.

I have to disagree about The Hangover's rewatch value. I thought it was just as funny the 2nd time. I have actually seen it 4 times and I still think it is hysterical.

Whenever I saw The Hangover, I was so disappointed, because all I had been hearing at school was quotes and "This movie is so fucking hilarious" for months, then I watched it and I was just like "Wow...that's it?".

It is a pretty funny movie though, but Pineapple Express is much better I think

(I know we weren't talking about Pineapple Express, but that's what alot of people compare it to)
