I want to hear why Robbie dislikes such great films like Guardians of the Galaxy and Fast Five.

It's almost as if it's subjective.
I used to be part of the community, now I just watch it...

I've only seen six films so I'm not qualified to take part in this, but I'm going to anyway.

Favourite
- Guardians of the Galaxy
- Captain America: The Winter Soldier
- The Lego Movie
- How to Train Your Dragon 2
- 22 Jump Street
- The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies
Least Favourite

Best Performance: Chris Pratt (Guardians of the Galaxy)
Best Director: Joe & Anthony Russo (Captain America)
Best Soundtrack: Captain America: The Winter Soldier
Best Poster: Guardians of the Galaxy
Overrated: 22 Jump Street (Guardians of the Galaxy is also overrated, despite being my personal favourite film of the year)
Underrated: I haven't really seen any underrated films this year, although reading through this thread I think that people think Guardians of the Galaxy is way more overrated than it actually is. So I guess my answer is Guardians of the Galaxy :|
Best Trailer: Guardians of the Galaxy
Most Looking Forward to in 2015: Avengers: Age of Ultron


My answers make me look way more into Marvel films than I actually am. I just haven't been able to see much stuff because I'm poor.
Films I definitely want to see: The Grand Budapest Hotel, Birdman, Frank, Gone Girl, X-Men: Days of Future Past

I swore to myself that I would go to the cinema more at the beginning of 2014, but that petered out eventually since there weren't too many great films this year tbh. But anyway, here's mine:

Best Films of 2014:
1. The Lego Movie
2. Guardians of the Galaxy (although there were some long scenes I really didn't care for)
3. X-Men: Days of Future Past
4. Captain America: Winter Soldier
5. How to Train Your Dragon 2 (saw it in IMAX on a college trip!)

Hmm, I didn't expect, nor thought this was a good year for Marvel films, but it looks to me like it was....

As for "Worst Films of 2014" I don't make myself see films I don't think I will like :lol:

However, I still have other categories:

Best Film I saw the Majority of but didn't Finish: Frank (I was on plane journey home and didn't get to finish it)
Most Disappointed By:The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies (which really should have been called "There and Back Again" damn it!)
Overrated: 22 Jump Street, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes
A Comedy that had Potential and could have been really Funny but Wasn't:A Million Ways to Die in the West

Let's hope 2015 is better, which it seems to be shaping up to be.
Although here's a category that I think seems fitting already:
Most Overrated and not as Controversial as a lot of people are saying:The Interview (It seems quite funny, but does it deserve a 9/10 rating on IMDb when it hasn't even had a full release yet, I think not!)
