One star for THE MAN WITH THE IRON FISTS? Seriously?

I really liked it (yes, I'm one of the couple dozen that caught this in a theater). I found it to be an engaging B-movie. Hopefully, it finds an audience on DVD/Blu.

I didn't get the critical love for The Perks Being a Wallflower (okay, I didn't get the critical love for a lot of recent movies). It's nothing more than yet another retread of John Hughes conventions.

I just wish filmmakers actually took the time to research high school (such as going to a mall or being a guest speaker for a class) instead of watching every John Hughes movie over a single night.

As someone who didn't fit in in high school and wishes that they had friends like Sam and Patrick (Christ, even now, I wish I had friends like that...or at all), the film really spoke to me. Different strokes, I guess.

I'll happily join you in the minority for not really liking CABARET.

Even setting aside Coppola getting robbed of the Best Director Oscar for GODFATHER PT. 1, the film came across to me as lifeless and overrated. I couldn't have cared less about any of the characters, and didn't believe the relationships at all.
