The Day The Earth Stood Still (2008) 1/10

Awful, awful, awful.
Not even Jennifer Connelly's MILFy goodness could save this formulaic + CGI garbage.
And I seriously wanted to punch Will Smith's son in the face every time he came on screen. X-I :-o

finally got around to seeing slumdog millionaire. i dont think there was anyway it could have been as good as the hype but it was solid. i didnt mind the 2nd half of the movie as most of the critics. id give it a 6.5 or 7/10.

The Big Lebowski - 4/10 - I was very disappointed after all the great things I had heard about this. It had some funny lines but I really just didn't enjoy it at all.

Wedding Crashers - 7/10 - Solid movie, no complaints.

Batman (1989) - 3.5/10 - Has not aged well at all. I was reading lists of what people liked better about this than The Dark Knight and I can't think of a single thing. It was hard to stay awake for the whole thing.

Changeling - 7/10 - Pretty messed up story, but made for a good movie.

Harsh Times - 6/10 - It was alright...nothing special but certainly not bad.

Tropic Thunder - 3.5/10 - I really didn't find this funny at all. Just too over the top I guess.

V for Vendetta - 6.5/10 - A little slow and again with this damn premise, but pretty good.

I Love You, Man - 8/10 - I really enjoyed this one. Has a number of great scenes.

Up - 6.5/10 - I don't know why but I didn't like it as much as some of Pixar's other movies.

Adventureland - 10/10 - I really loved this movie. I can't give it enough praise, it was just fantastic.

Watchmen - 6.5/10 - Too long, but interesting.

Funny People - 7/10 - Adam Sandler's comedy is getting a little tiresome, but the rest of the cast provides plenty of laughs.

One Hour Photo - 8.5/10 - A great psychological thriller. Very creepy.

Punch-Drunk Love - 8.5/10 - While Adam Sandler's usual comedy is getting tiresome, I thought he did great in this. Just a very quirky, enjoyable movie.

I stopped reading after this, please hand in your movie critique card at the front gate on your way out.

What ever happened to Mr. Different Strokes For Different Folks that came out during the Hot Chick Draft? :-b

But seriously, Lebowski was great, as was Wedding Crashers, the original Batman (at the time this movie was simply phenomenal, and it still is for me), and Tropic Thunder.

Tropic Thunder is probably the best comedy ever made.

I also just saw the Hangover, which was good and entertaining but is definitely quite a bit overrated

Oh I still feel that way.....but not when the "strokes" are just plain insanity. :-D

And yeah rating Tropic Thunder that low is more proof of teddy's certified insanity. :-b

I thought it was good but I also think it is a bit overrated. I somehow missed watching it until a few years ago and frankly, I like their later work a lot more.
