Monsters[/center]

Exit Through the Gift Shop has met it's match.

Wow, gonna go watch it now.  The sour/lukewarm reviews on IMDB made me hesitant, but I must remember hat 99% of people don't know what they are talking about.
Iíve lied to men who wear belts. Iíve lied to men who wear suspenders. But Iíd never be so stupid as to lie to a man who wears both a belt and suspenders.

Part of it is you need to know what you're going to see. Most people saw the connections to cloverfield and the title Monsters thought "oh, ok, another big monster movie!" and then got a slow meditative piece on the travel through the jungle, where we are simple watching the people affected by the Monsters and barely see the Monsters themselves (though there was more of them then I expected, especially towards the end). I thought more of Deliverance, and th3e way it's been stereotyped as a "Hard ot watch film" when it's more a hard to watch scene and the rest is watching the impact of said event, Monsters is about the impact, not the big monsters. Which makes mainstream audiences confused.
I actually consider a lot of movies to be life-changing! I take them to my heart and they melt into my personality.

I liked Monsters, but not as much as you.  Glad to see it finding some fans here on the boards.  I know its not the most popular thing out there.  I really want to see it again before i make my final list of the year.  Also, much love for Scoot.

I actually liked the trailer enough I'm considering buying it blind. Not that the trailers THAT good, but it looks like a movie I'd like.

I enjoyed it a lot. My friend loved it. It's pretty impressive. It's still the technical that astounds me. The crew and budget were tiny, and the visual effects on prosumer quality goods (off the shelf, as such) by one guy. Amazing.

Comparable to, say, District 9?

With a much smaller budget.

How to Train Your Dragon

Lasted 15 minutes through this, didn't even get to the part where he meets the dragon.  The voice acting and the dialogue was SO annoying.  Characters speak in this B actor doing a cartoon sort of voice and the script is so cliche that one minute in I knew every thing that would happen in this movie.  But my God that protagonist - sounds like a sixteen year old doing an impression of Woody Allen.  Absolutely unwatchable.

1/10

LOL it's the only animated film I liked this year. :D

That sounds like exactly my kind of movie. I'm getting psyched!
