Do you think you have any film opinion(s) that could be considered unpopular or even 'controversial'?

The Exorcist needs to be remade.

Most grade B movies(you know the films that cost nearly nothing to make) made during the 1950s are far superior than even the best films they make now.

The limitations of using models forced fantasy films to depend more on character and storyline.

CGI allows a filmmaker to merely dazzle the audience with special effects with little or not story and character depth.

Actors and actresses who made films during the 1930s-60s were much more talented than even the best of contemporary actors/actresses.

Jaws 4 is my favourite to watch.

I think The Godfather is an overrated pile of tripe, however I can understand why people think it is a classic. I guess I just don't get it?

Here's perhaps my most 'controversial' opinion.I think they should just stop making any and all new films,since they can no longer make anything even remotely good.

- Complaining about sparkly vampires is not a valid criticism of Twilight

- Kristen Stewart is a talented actress

- Most British people don't give a flying fig whether it was "a good night for the Brits" at Hollywood award shows.

Looking at DS, it seems saying that they still make good films is more controversial.

I thought Inception and The Dark Knight were both incredibly boring.

The Harry Potter kids cannot act for sh*t

Avatar was utter rubbish

Gary Oldman gave the best performance in The Dark Knight

Twilight isn't anywhere near as bad as some people make it out to be

The Usual Suspects is boring

Scarface is overrated and not Al Pacino's best film.

Batman Begins is such a superior piece of film-making to TDK it hurts. Writing/characters/dialogue/pacing: wipes the floor with TDK.

Scorsese's Goodfellas is not actually a true classic, with only a few standout scenes. Casino is a much better all-round movie.

Spielberg's best work all happened before 1983.

I have never watched any of the Harry Potters, for a childrens author who became very rich J K Rowling always came across to me as a bit miserable, so I did not watch them.

Vampires should not be Nicey Nice, I will not watch Twilight.

Loved the Usual Suspects, did not see the big twist till it hit me which is very rare.

Scarface..Agreed, maybe it was better when it first came out.

Avatar (Dances with Smurfs) was awful.

It was oil company wants natives land, oil company gets land, natives with help of rebelling oil company employee get land back. Very pretty but very dull at the same time.

I don't see why Spiderman 3 is deemed so much worse than the first two. Ok, Venom was used badly, and 'dark' Peter Parker was a joke, but it aint that bad.

Pulp Fiction is at best average and forgettable. Likewise with The Usual Suspects.

Jaws is quite boring.
Action wise, Jaws 2 is a superior film.
