In fairness, I've been meaning to reevaluate Crystal Skull for some time as the last time I saw it was in cinemas, but I just found it so silly and disappointing that every time I come to think about watching it, I just remember how great the first three are and end up watching one of them instead.

The first three are actually quite silly too but they also took themselves seriously enough that they are quite edgy and dark at times. Crystal Skull is just silly.

The main problem with ...Crystal Skull was the fact that Bomber wasn't in it.

In hindsight we should have known it was gonna be shit just from the poster. Blanchett in panto villain mode and Winstones cap and tache combo noting he's not to be trusted. Can't bring myself to ever watch again.

I may be wrong on whether it was well received critics wise but I hardly know a soul who knows of 'Midnight Run' starring Robert de Niro and its a great movie and Im not exaggerating when I say De Niros performance in this film is up there with his Godfather 2,Raging bull,taxi driver roles and I know theyre very different but its just as good, I think thhe film will be regarded as a classic in years to come, its one of the best movies of all time.

Its a decent film in its own right but it pales in comparsion to Goodfellas.

I think Cloud Atlas will be considered a classic eventually. Its concept was always going to be a tough sell, and the distributors around the world obviously limited their resources with promotion (with only one overly-long trailer really).

Also, Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World has already achieved cult status on home release despite performing quite abysmally at the box office.

My views on Scot Pilgrim have now gone full circle.It's still a creatively stylish looking film but the two main characters are so shallow its beyond words.On second viewing I really couldn't care less about them.

Isn't it about time The Prestige was acknowledged as a classic? I really think it's one of the best films from the 00's and is near flawless. Everything about it is brilliant and it is a very unique film in it's own right.

I'll be honest. I didn't realise it wasn't acknowledged as a classic already.

Midnight Run is a great film but it owes just as much to the wonderful Charles Grodin as it does De Niro. And look at that support cast - Joey Pants and Denis Farina! Awesomeness all round.

I'm tempted to say the same, although Batman Begins and Inception give it a run for its money.

Mine too, but I agree with DK that it's not as recognised as some of his other work which is such a shame. I think it's probably also my favourite Hugh Jackman film .... probably tied with Les Miserables. For different reasons of course

Equilibrium. However, saying I did think it created a great universe which I would have liked to have seen expanded on in sequels. I remember after the first time I saw it at the cinema (Stoke on Trent Odeon whoop whoop!) that the story could have been spread over one if not two sequels. Bloody good film actually!

Never really warmed to Inception. I find most of the characters difficult to empathise with, leaving it 'cold'. Some great sequences, yes, but there's just something that doesn't gel for me.

BB & TDK (and to a lesser degree, TDKR) are all great, but The Prestige just has something else to it that I can't quite pinpoint..
