Yep, it's back, welcome to the One Star Movie Reviews Quiz!

Here, you will find a selection of reviews, where the reviewer has given the movie in question a lone single star (they hated it), and all you have to do is guess the film that they are describing.

To enter, simply PM me your answers, and i'll compile a scoreboard once the round has ended (i'll give each round roughly a week).

Right then, here goes...

[Round 1 has now ended]

Good luck folks :)

The fifth one is confusing as hell. They start out reviewing one thing (which I assume is the one we're supposed to guess?)
But then the rest of the review is just complaining about Prince of Persia!

Oh god these reviews! :lol:

I bloody enjoyed number 5. My opinion is pretty much the opposite of that review.
Reviewer number 6 sounds like an angel delight (I am interested in watching the film though)
Review 8 though... "I'm not a prude" complaining about language in that film is the last thing you should be complaining about. I mean, I don't like bloody violence either, but I still know a decent film when I see one.

Tough round this time.
