^What a ridiculous question.

I'm holding off mine until next month. In my film-nerd world, list-making for this type of thread is a Very Serious Business.

Ridiculous, isn't it? Does the OP only watch children's films?

If you're going to start a thread, at least make sure the first post isn't incomprehensible to read and uses punctuation.

How can you describe your third favourite film of the year as utter dross?! And I think we all know what marmite is, it's a cliché that's been used enough.

Ignore him. You always get one person that has absolutely nothing to contribute.

Personally I think this is a good thread. Since I haven't been to see any movies at the cinema this year it will give me an idea of which films to look out for in the future and which to avoid.

My list so far:

Yay list (in no particular order)
Django Unchained
Star Trek Into Darkness
Dispicable Me 2
Monsters University
The Lone Ranger
Wolverine
Riddick
The Hobbit - part 2 - I'm sure it will go on the list come December!

Disappointed with:
After Earth
Elysium
World War Z
Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters

I knew I wouldn't like it and I didn't (but end up half watching it due to my partner):
Iron Man 3

I had no idea that a version of the novel had been made recently. Thanks for the heads-up.

From the original (OP) lineup, I would agree with all (the positives) except World War Z (which I thought was mediocre at best) and Wolverine (which I didn't watch). As per the negatives, I haven't seen the first two, but the other three I did enjoy, though would agree that Iron Man 3 wasn't the best of the trilogy.

Additions to the positives:
* Fast & Furious 6
* The Lone Ranger
* Riddick

Additions to the meh movies (films I somewhat enjoyed, though they were nothing to shout about):
* Pain and Gain
* Now You See Me

Additions to the negatives:
* Oblivion
* After Earth
* Elysium

A few mentions of Django Unchained here too. You guys are aware that's a 2012 film, right?

The UK release date was the 18th of January 2013, so it certainly counts for this year.

There are still too many I haven't seen (Blue Jasmine, Captain Phillips, Gravity, Philomena ...) to make a representative list but my highlights among those I did get to see were:

Behind the Candelabra
Rush
The Great Gatsby (3D)
Frances Ha

I Liked The Place Beyond the Pines and Les Mis, but found Dans la Maison, Lincoln and Argo disappointing.

Ahh, that reminds me.

Lincoln can go on my really didn't like it list and I was disappointed with Argo (it's an OK film but I personally found the historic inaccuracies really annoying).

Read through the posts on here and realised that I've only seen one new film this year (White House Down, which I didn't like much). My interest in new movies and the cinema (haven't been this year) really has plummeted of late, and I don't see anything to revive that interest.

It's all so .

Oh, all right then. You've twisted my arm. So easily, too. Here are my draft lists:

Definitely on my Top 5 list:

New World (SK)
Gangs of Wasseypur

Still deciding which to pick (as in, somewhat flawed but highly enjoyable):

Intruders (SK)
The Act of Killing (documentary)
I Will Be Murdered (documentary)
Rush
Side Effects
Mud
Warm Bodies
The Broken Circle Breakdown
The Great Passage
We Are What We Are
The Lunchbox
Fruitvale Station
An Ethics Lesson (director Myung-Rang Park is a name to watch)
Frances Ha
Ilo Ilo
Europa Report
Hide and Seek (director Huh Jung is another name to watch)
-- this list is not done yet.

I expect Oldboy to go on that list because it resembles Old Boy (comic) a little more than Park's Oldboy ever did. Note: I dislike Park's adaptation because it doesn't resemble the comic much. So I'll be happy if Lee's Oldboy does somehow resemble the comic, even if it contains new takes on some scenes from Park's Oldboy.

Most disappointing:

The World's End
Pacific Rim (My fault, though. I shouldn't have let friends' raves raise my expectations)
Star Trek Into Darkness (ditto)
Running Man
Only God Forgives
Real
Blind Detective
Secretly Greatly
Man of Tai Chi
It's a Beautiful Day
As the Light Goes Out (director Derek Kwok, you promised a dark tale of fire fighters fighting for their lives during one intense night. And what did we get? A recycled version of Lifeline, you lying arse.)
