Free speech allows all of us to express our opinions of art & film. If you want a good laugh, check the IMDB criticisms of movies. Pick a movie you hate and read what others who hate it wrote. Fave movies; 1) The Day After, 2) Alien, 3) The Game, 4) Elizabeth, 5) Sense and Sensibility (Kate Winslet), 6) Pride and Prejudice (Kiera Knightly), 7) Bourne Identity, 8) Dead Calm, 9) Get the Gringo & 10) The Jackal. Runners up; The Matrix, Michael Clayton, All the President's Men, Titanic, Cowboys & Aliens, Apollo 13, Benjamin Button, The Day the Earth Stood Still (Michael Rennie), The Godfather, Jaws, The Gauntlet and United 93.
