Didn't you give this film 10/10 in another thread.
Worst kind of critic is an undecided one.

Yes, but then I realised that I'd get flamed for giving a film 10/10.

I think everybody should make use of the whole scale. I would only award 10/10 to a handful of movies (or even a few handful). While I'd give 5/10 or 6/10 for a decent movie. 300 would fit that - visually great, but storyline and character development nonexistant. Don't be fooled by the video game scoring system, where anything below 8/10 is usually rubbish.

Apart from that, I'll definitely watch Children of Men.

Here is my top 20 movie list, on 'Your Movie Database'.

I encourage everyone reading this thread to go and make their own Top 20 and post the link here.

Have a nice day.

Seriously thats the worst 300 review i have ever seen.
300 was indeed a 10/10 film. Not because it pleased you, but because it did EXACTLY what it was supposed to do, in the way it was expected.

Have you even read the comics?

Too difficult to select a top 20, so many great films.

Just throw on the first 20 or 10 or even 5 that come to mind and edit it on subsequent visits (which is really easy - just use up/down arrows and Add/Remove). I edit mine every time I check it.

Did you really put TROY in your top 20? I thought that film was a joke to be honest.
