No worries. At the end of each month you post your monthly viewing, usually with some commentary explaining how you're ashamed of yourself for not watching enough movies or proud of yourself for watching so many movies. Then we all seeth at how AJ's totals make the rest of us look like dilettantes by comparison.

An 8/10 for Cosmopolis? :shock: You're the first person i've met who actually liked that film, I agree 100% with James review, it was a pretentious and tedious crapfest.

It wasn't without its stiff and awkward patches, but I dug it. Clever, unsettling portrait of self-destruction. Me likey.

Top Eight New Viewings:
8. Out of Sight
7. Blow
6. End of Watch

Stiff and akward perfectly describes Robert Pattison's performance, he has to be the single most wooden actor of all time.
