Here's the reason why I included Dredd: because of how much it flopped at the box office.

I can't believe people here think that Dredd is superior to The Raid: Redemption. It blows my mind. Dredd was alright, but it nothing really special. The Raid was decidedly something very special.

Do you even Jay Cutler?

Ti West has been consistent, yet his films don't make a lot of money.

He could always pull a James Wan and sell out.

There are only a few movies I really find a guilty pleasure in:

The Losers. Yes, I absolutely love this movie. I read the comics a thousand times over, and the movie just utterly nailed the feel of them. Chris Evans is GOD as Jensen, and it's just an overall funny and entertaining movie with good and memorable dialogue. 47%? Fuck that shit.

I, Robot. Another movie with a splat that I absolutely fucking love. Will Smith KILLS it as Del Spooner, and Sonny is just a mesmerizing character to watch. Epic movie.

O Brother Where Art Thou isn't really critically reviled, but I hate its reputation as a lesser Coen Brothers outing. It's one of their best in my opinion.

Of course, you all know my love of National Treasure, so I won't get too far into that one.

And Taken does not deserve a splat. That movie is FULLY awesome. Liam Neeson is the badass to end all badasses.

I disagree with every film, except O Brother. Also, where's Eagle Eye?

It's enjoyable, but I wouldn't say it needs more recognition.

If you liked Eagle Eye than you had to have liked the Matrix. That entire movie was just the scaffold scene stretched to feature length but with terrible dialogue and Shia Laboef crying his way through the lead role.

Shia Ladouche is still light years better than Keanu "The Butthole" Reeves.

Not even.

Oh yes. And did I even include Eagle Eye? No, because it is a lame lame.

I like Taken and I, Robot. The Losers and National Treasure were just okay. I love O Brother Where Art Thou.

I admit that I have a soft spot for The Losers, as I loved the comics so much.

Well, I never read the comics, as I'm not a big comic reader.

I highly recommend them. They're gritty and stylish and AWESOME AS FUCK.

I never thought O Brother Where Art Thou had a reputation as a lesser Coen bros movie.

Is that a different way of saying underrated movies?

Dead Silence was creepy in the beginning, but it got rather boring quickly.

The Divide disappointed me actually.

I wasn't looking forward to it mainly because it's a DTV film and it's directed by Xavier Gens (I'm not a big Hitman or ABCs of Death fan; I didn't see Frontier(s) yet). So, I bought the DVD and I watched it. I couldn't believe for a second that this film was released DTV.

You should really watch Frontier(s), man. I also thought that Xavier's short, XXL was one of the best in The ABCs of Death.

No. Young Frankenstein needs more.

Young Frankenstein is known as Mel Brooks's best movie. I'd say that's some recognition.

Nah, but teens these days would rather watch Paranormal Activity 17 and Transformers 20.

Well that's their parents' fault for not showing them good movies as children.
