    It's probably bad that I've only heard of half of those

    Not really. I live in MPLS close to a indie theater that shows some smaller movies and go to those quite a bit.

    I have seen none of these, though I can't remember the last movie I saw in theaters was.

    Same. I think the last one I saw might have been Hunger Games.

    Star Trek is the only movie I have seen this year, so I will give that one the number one spot.

    I am anxiously awaiting Pacific Rim, though. Maybe that will take over #1.

    Sorry to digress, but I caught part of 'Independence Day' again last night and just wanted to report that yes, it is still the most ridiculously lame movie in the history of film.

    I am not nor have I ever been a fan of Will Smith. He annoys the hell out of me.

    I wish this were true for me but I thought MOS was incredibly disappointing. The best parts to me were the flashbacks but all the action scenes got too long and repetitive for my liking.

    This. Not only the time, but the money. Still remember the last movie I saw in the theater......Terminator: Salvation, in May 2009. Now there are just too many commercials and previews, loud people, annoying kids, cell phone users, etc.

    Might break the streak though to go see Man of Steel. Might.

    The last movie I saw in theaters was The Dark Knight. The last one before that was Signs(2002).
