I liked The Tourist with Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie, but it was panned by critics and made fun of by people here on the DIS.

"Fandango" is one of my all-time favorite movies. It's aslo one of those films that found new-life when it was released on video. Probably the best example of that phenomenon is "The Shawshank Redemption", whose box office was pretty modest and had to rely on foreign theaters to return a profit.

Battleship- thought it was fun

John Carter- liked it more the second time I watched.

White House Down- really loved that one! Don't understand why it "flopped".

Treasure Planet

Cowboys and Aliens

Green Lantern- didn't love but I thought it was fun.

I adored John Carter. One of the few movies I actually own.

I didn't think John Carter was all that bad. Don't think Ill ever see it again, but I don't think it deserved all the negative reactions it got.

I also liked WaterWorld. Would not mind seeing that re made, has a pretty unique story.

In regards to SATC 2, I will say that SATC was my favorite TV show ever... and I thought the first movie was pretty good. However, that whole Abu Dhabi storyline was I would really love to see another sequel though.

My input is Rock of Ages, I totally loved that movie, it is one of my favorites . It seems that nobody else liked it.
