My upcoming blurb is so bad, I have nothing to say about the film.

I would probably throw 'Ted' into my top 20 and 'The Watch' into my Top 10 if I were to redo my list today.  Both completely charming.

Woah, I thought you meant End Of Watch, which was respectable. The Watch...hoo boy.

I LOOOOVED 'The Watch'.  It reminded me of an 80s action-comedy.  Vaughn and Hill were hilarious, the aliens were suitably gross/surprisingly well-done and it was just genuinely entertaining all the watch through.  I actually didn't think much of 'End of Watch', it starts off well with the found footage gimmick but it quickly abandons it, and it was just way too unbelievable that every single thing these two cops respond to is a white-knuckle, death-defying case involving drugs, vicious assaults, or murder.  I mean, even the one where they're checking on an old lady ends up being the discovery of a bunch of corpses.  The last stretch was the worst part, where it goes from gritty police procedural into video game-style shoot 'em up.

I'm gonna say Looper, cause that was my No. 1.  Someone please put a bullet in this board so I can officially stop seeing if it has any signs of life.

I've been on this board for several years and I don't think i've ever clicked on that thread more than once.  Why the fuck would I care whose birthday it is?

 

Most pointless thread in history, but Tony seems to enjoy it, so have at it.

I don't consume pop culture at the same rate I used to, so I recently decided Robot and Frank was my favorite, unseating ParaNorman, which unseated Looper and so on.

If the board is to die, I would hope it would be interactive and appropriate to it's favorite subject. We should be able to watch the board lose it's arm in a Maserati crash, choke on a cherry stone while on the nod, finally drowning in the Mississippi River. Then, that Rock N' Roll House Painter guy can take the board by the hand and gently lead it up the slopes of the Big Rock Candy Mountain.
