Sorry I haven't been updating the blog lately. I've been more swamped in work than usual. I'm going to play catch up right now in a very cheap way. Rather than contributing a thousand words per movie, I'm just going to give my "IMDb rating" on a scale of ten. It's the best I can do right now. Real blogging will resume tomorrow. Until then, enjoy this roundup, ask me in the comments why I feel the way I do, and we'll start some arguments down there. Sorry for the unscheduled break!

So yes, this batch had some movies that I think are pretty overrated, and on a list where most people would say the worst film is Little Miss Sunshine, it's undoubtedly my favorite and the only one I've been compelled to watch multiple times. Go figure.
Back tomorrow with Ben-Hur; you'd better be prepared.
