    Just watched Blade Runner, disgusted with myself that I put it off for this long.

    Not the first time watching this film but the first time in a while to say the least. Didn't want to watch anything to heavy, was way too tired. Great film, this time watching, I was really able to appreciate a lot of the jokes put in there for the adults.

    Avatar must be one of the most over rated films of all time, I didn't like it

    Saw a new hope and empire strikes back earlier. Enjoyed both a lot. The characters, dialogue and Star Wars universe were all excellent and fun.

    While I think they're both very, very good films I wouldn't rank empire strikes back as one of the best films ever. I can see why people might though

    Christ, watched The Visit as I've heard decent things about it and it's absolutely terrible. So many stupid things about it.

    Actually commented before the proper end. Explains one stupid thing, but still so many of them.

    Actually seen it in the cinema, didn't think it was terrible but most of the scenes didn't feel connected in any way which made some 10 minute periods of the film feel pointless.

    I really didn't like it. The documentary style saved it from being one of my least favourite films of all time, but the characters are rather dislikeable and the twist seems so forced.

    It's a problem, imo, that Shyamalan HAS to have a twist in all of his films, you're just waiting for it to happen and it got to a point in The Visit where the twist wasn't as surprising as I'm sure he hoped it would be.

    366 Days of Movies #4 - Toy Story 2 (1999)
    Was planning on watching SE7EN today, but I don't feel too well so I'll probably watched the third Toy Story tomorrow and SE7EN the day after. Love this film, not as good as the first, or the subsequent third Toy Story, but still a great film non-the-less. Nicely introduces the new characters into the series. Wish I could back to when I was younger watching these film for the first time.

    I thought the second Toy Story was the best one.
