I voted Star Trek. It was so kickass it made parts of my anatomy go all giggly.
Start to finish it was a wild, fun ride that re-juiced the characters and franchise without ruining anyone's childhood. The actor's really stepped into the roles and owned them by movie's end, the special effects were great, the tech was awesome and the whole thing had enough relatability and excitement in it to keep me intrigued the whole ride through.
I don't understand the hate Watchmen got either and I had not read the graphic novel so I did not know what to expect. They say it jumped around too much, but didn't they praise Tarantino for doing that in Resevoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction?
My movie of the year so far, The Hangover. It surprised me and is the funniest I've seen in a while, last funniest I saw as In Bruges
Went with TF2 myself.That battle scene in the forest with Prime was brilliant.Watchmen was pretty good too,I read the GN so knew what to expect and it didn't disappoint.The ugly truth is a very funny film too I'd recommend that(its hitch mixed with Stifler from american pie truly funny stuff).

Went with Star Trek, which is tied with Hangover for most enjoyed movie experience so far this year. Cant rate ROTF as im to attatched to it,set myself up for the fall on that one, need to watch it again. Let the right one in was a bit over rated i thought but still quite good. Sex Drive was my other fave comedy this year..along with GI Joe. Watchmen gets my vote for most faithful adaption to screen ever ..and prefered it to the comic series. Bruno is just the same joke over and over. Underworld 3 was surprisinly good ,as too was Outlander.
Whenever LOCKDOWN is not on screen or in comic panel all the other characters should be saying "Where is LOCKDOWN?" or "I wonder what LOCKDOWN is up to?" or "LOCKDOWN would know what to do" or something that references LOCKDOWN.
Watchmen gets my vote. I absolutely, unreservedly loved it. I actually went to see the film twice in one weekend, which is something I have never ever done for any other film.
I was a little surprised that it sank so quickly at the box office. I think part of the reason was that people not familiar with the comic thought that it was going to be a superhero movie in the vein of X-Men, or something similar to that.
Yeah my gf thought the same too and when she seen it she hated it.She doesn't really like super hero movies whereas I'm the exact opposite.But Watchmen was very good and a very faithful adaptation.Ozymandias was a little skinny but Rorshach was dead on.
