I thought M. Night Shyamalan's "The Village" was a great film.
With the exception of "Annie Hall," I have to say that any praise for Woody Allen is unwarranted.
"28 Weeks Later" was the biggest piece of garbage I've seen in a long time, and the worst sequel since "Matrix: Reloaded."
I think Spielberg's take on "A.I." still would have been better than Kubrick's... on that note: "Eyes Wide Shut" was abysmal.
I enjoyed Joe Carnahan's "Smokin' Aces."
I thought the director's cut of "Kingdom Of Heaven" made the film one of the best period epics in film history.

Judd Apatow is over-rated, not to mention a sexist. 
That's true.

I'd like to hear how he's sexist... His films are about 20-something bachelors, who obviously are going to objectify women. He's no Pedro Almodóvar; however, I don't think we're called to praise the ignorance portrayed in these characters and their actions. We're supposed to laugh at their absurdity, not mimic them. Besides, he has many strong female characters in many of his works... just watch "Freaks And Geeks."

Costner is a good actor.

Favorite one so far.

My existence (along with countless others) refutes this statement. Please say you see the inherent problem with it.

I like Freaks and Geeks, but I wouldn't say there's anything special about the way he handles gender stereotypes in that show, it just slightly more even handed. The two films he's made could be defended, but have serious problems. He's by far at his worst when producing though. Look at the last 10 things he's produced and you'll find at least 7 that handle gender stereotypes and politics absurdly (the bad kind of absurd).

Date Movie is funny.
Anchorman and Old School aren't funny.
You find Date Movie funny but not Anchorman?  I find it hard to believe that anyone could find Date Movie the least bit amusing.  And yes, I did sit through all 1 hour and 23 minutes of that piece of crap.

Doesn't that make sense though? I mean, if someone tells me they don't like Anchorman, Annie Hall or Wes Anderson, I would expect that person to like Date Movie, Matrix Reloaded and Kevin Costner. We're perfect opposites.

I love this thread!!!

Mean Girls is the best comedy of the 21st century so far.
Christian Bale is not only a boring one-note actor, but every movie he is in is worse because of his performance.
Lindsay Lohan is a talented actress, and has given some very good performances.
Superbad is not only gratuitous and disgusting, but not one bit funny.
Anna Farris is one of generations best female comedic actresses.
Matt Damon's best performances were in the Bourne movies, and nothing else he's done has ever come close to matching those movies.
Amy Adams is the second greatest living actress, behind Meryl Streep.
Mark Waters is a better director than Brian De Palma.
Zodiac is nothing more than your average crime mystery film.
It's like I've waited my whole life, for this one night.  It's gon' be me you and the dance floor.  We've only got one night.  Double your pleasure, double your fun.  And dance forever.

I haven't seen Freaky Friday and I was only lukewarm at best on Mean Girls and I'm pretty sure I still agree with this.

I won't comment on the rest.
