Wow, I let this go.  Time to catch up...

36. MegaMind - Don't know what Butter was complaining about, I thought this was awesome.  I for one don't care if there wasn't a clearly definable moral, I'm sick of that crap anyway.  It was entertaining, that's all I needed.

37. The Shop Around the Corner - Pretty much the original You've Got Mail with Jimmy Stewart and a bunch of nobodies (except the Wizard from Wizard of Oz).  I enjoyed this a lot.  I wish Hollywood could go back to this kind of simplicity.

38. Back to the Future - Decided to show this to my 11 year old.  I looked up during the dance/parking lot scenes and she had gone to her room.  There's no hope for her, I'm afraid.

39. Fantastic Mr. Fox - Really liked it.  Had it been a live action Wes Anderson movie I'm not sure where I'd rate it.  Above The Life Aquatic and Darjeeling Limited, certainly.  Definitely below The Royal Tennenbaums though.  Loved the animation and look of the film.  Going to have to start saying "cuss" more often.

40. Love Actually - The pretty much annual viewing.  This was on TBS though, seeing it with the naughty bits edited out was amusing.

41. The Hoax - I remember thinking it was really interesting at the time but until I checked back through our Netflix queue to see what we had returned I'd forgotten we watched it at all.

Yes, that pesky script sure is unnecessary.  As long as stuff blow'd up real good, who really cares?

It was a freakin' kids movie.  Do we have to beat them over the head with cautionary tales in every single movie?

Ben Button: Holy crap I cried watching that film. More/longer than any film that I can remember. I'm actually embarrassed about this, but not so much that I won't say something. Did anyone else cry? It was obvious how things were going to pan out for them and yet I still was a mess. I was glad I watched this in my room by myself. Fincher is such an amazing director I don't know why I hadn't seen this sooner or even seen The Social Network yet. Well done sir.

Jaden Smith Karate Kid: it was a free blu-ray, so I watched it. The film was pretty much everything I'd heard, which is to say that it was better than we all initially expected when we heard they were re-making Karate Kid, but still not worth telling anyone that they need to see it. Knowing the plot didn't help as there was no suspense for me. Jaden Smith and Jackie Chan were both good and the girl love interest was adorable even if a little far fetched. She looked a solid three years older than him. :)

Why are you complaining to me?  The filmmakers were the ones who tried to do it.  And it was written badly.  If they didn't include a morality play, then maybe they would get a pass.  But the stupid sappy shit they tried to do just didn't work.  I don't know why you would expect an audience to just ignore 25% of the movie and enjoy it in spite of itself.  If you are going to do it, fuckin' do it right or leave it out.

I must be missing your argument... I didn't get any morality play in it at all.  It was just a story.  If you're saying they attempted one and it missed the mark it really must have because I didn't see any at all.

40. Dumb & Dumber - Yep, I had never seen this until Sunday. Terrible. I hate movies like this, hence why I never saw until now. But at least now I don't have to be nagged about it. I don't like cheesecake (even the homemade from scratch one that your mom makes out of crack and fairy tits) & I don't like Jim Carrey movies. NOW, LEAVE ME ALONE!!!!
Ugh, why did you cave in to the peer pressure? I've never seen it (or any of it's sequels) and think my life is just fine without experiencing it. If you had to pick a movie to watch that would shut people up, you should have watched The Wizard of Oz. In the future if someone nags you about a Jim Carrey movie you have permission to beat them about the head and neck with the dvd case.

New to me movies are bolded.

1. Up In the Air
2. Bottle Rocket
3. The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus  I could have used a little bit more exposition, but visually amazing.
4. The Hangover Funny, but Bradley Cooper's character was annoying. Would have been better in the theater
5. Avatar 3-D version.  As has been stated before, so pretty
6. The House Bunny It didn't suck. And was way more conservative/traditional than I would have expected.
7. Keeping Mum Maggie Smith plays a psychopath, Rowan Atkinson plays a normal person, and Patrick Swayze plays a sleazy golf pro.
8. Tin Man Sy-fy mini series redoing "The Wizard of Oz".  Stick to the original, as Zooey D. is annoying and Alan Cumming is underused.
9. The Talented Mr. Ripley Who knew you could feel sympathy for a psychopath?
10. When in Rome Cute, predictable, and snappier than expected.
11. Gods and Monsters very quiet film, and interesting look at the director who created Frankenstein and Showboat.
12. 2010 Academy Award Nominated Animated Short Films
13. 2010 Academy Award Nominated Short Films
14. In Good Company Dennis Quaid = good, Scarlett Johannsen = I don't understand the appeal.
15. Shaun the Sheep off the Baa By Nick Park, lots of sheep shorts. Previews were for the under 5 yo crowd.
16. Alice in Wonderland 3D.  Just enough Johnny Depp.  Good flick, very fun, and remarkably not scary-creepy.
17. Saving Face Chinese lesbian living in New York tries to keep her life from her mother.
18. Hogfather Another Sy-Fy type movie. Really need to stop watching these, because they aren't as good as they should be.
19. Fanboys So fun, and the music was dead-on.  I'll leave all other fan-wanking to people more vested in Star wars.
20. How to Train Your Dragon 3-d.  I think I should be getting residuals for dragon-inspiration.  Toothless= dead ringer for my cat!
21. Sex, Lies, and Videotape- I still love James Spader, though he has creepy characters nailed.
22. 17 Again.  Sucked Again
23. The Proposal- not too bad on the plane
24. Four Rooms  Interesting combo of short films.  Tarantino is annoying, though.
25. Barbershop  Light movie, and pretty funny.  I'd heard it was good, and I definitely enjoyed it.
26. Babies very cute, and we westerners way smother our kids.  Look out for goats!
27. Shrek 4 It was what it was.  Needed more Gingy and Puss.
28. A Lot Like Love Ashton Kutcher is actually pretty good! I liked this movie alot- it would be a good one to watch again.
29. Harold and Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay. Like the first one better, but NPH makes this one for me.
30. Leonard Maltin's Animation Favorites I'm counting these, because they are movie shorts. Sponsored by the Canadian Film board. Interesting, especially some of the really old ones. Thanks, Netflix.
31. Desk Set Hepburn/Tracy as a reference librarian and an efficiency expert.  Still very relevant to today, though google has made lots of the drama obsolete.  Very good!
32. Best in Show    Still very good, though I prefer a mighty wind
33.Toy Story      Haven't seen in years, but it was soooo good. Am ready to see the third part now!
34. Up     Again, Pixar does amazing things with stories.
35. Pinnochio    Came in half-way through, but I'm counting it as "seen".  Don't lie, or your nose will grow!
36. Toy Story 3 A delightful experience, and I admit, I was teary eyed multiple times.
37. Despicable Me Also fun, and amazingly light. Loved how Vortex's stuff was all Apple-y and seamless.
38. We are Marshall Those kids were babies.  Matthew McC. wasn't bad in this, amazingly
39. Bourne Identity   Time for the annual viewing! Damon is looking like a child in this one. Still so very good.
40. Ponyo Miyazaki does it again, nice tight story, interesting world was created, and the goldfish was red.
41. Pixar's Shorts, Vol. 1 Included the one with the lamp, which I hadn't seen, and the short that inspired Toy Story Very good!
42. Miami Vice  I just couldn't care, but was more excited to see Ciaran Hinds than Colin Farrell.
43. The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus  Better the second time around, still visually amazing.
44. Reality Bites.  Oh, Winona, you so made the wrong decision in this one! (Watching at 35 is very different than at 20)
45. You Again could have been better, but will work very well as a Saturday movie on TNT or something.
46. Easy A A very cute movie, and way more name actors than I expected.  Emma Stone did a great job carrying the movie.
47. Life as we Know It This movie was so made for women- Josh Duhmel w/o shirt, w/ baby, in motorcycle jacket, gets kiss close up.
48. Capote Really good, I liked that it wasn't about the murders specifically.  And the casualness of Harper Lee being there was great. Would have really liked a movie about her.
49. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows I did really like this one.  Can't believe I have to wait until July for the next one!
Quote

49.5 The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe  - Saw half of it.
50. Sherlock Holmes  Fun, but I've been spoiled by the new BBC version
51. Tangled I always enjoy a good Disney flick, and this one did pretty well.  A little scary for young peeps.

I really fail to see how it's any different than the Judd Apatow movies that everybody thinks are so wonderful.  It's repugnant and silly.  I haven't tried to watch it lately, and maybe I wouldn't like it now, but it was funny at the time.  Not sure why the passage of 15 years now means that everyone is above Jim Carey movies, I didn't hear anyone complaining at the time.

Oh I was certainly complaining at the time, couldn't stand them then either. And, for me, the Judd Apatow movies fall into the same category... the "No desire to see these movies" category.

I must be missing your argument... I didn't get any morality play in it at all.  It was just a story.  If you're saying they attempted one and it missed the mark it really must have because I didn't see any at all.

Really no point in arguing this between these comments and your characterization of Judd Apatow movies as "repugnant"... it's a fight that will never be resolved.
