    The A-Team
    I didn't think they could pull it off, even with Liam Neeson, plus I didn't like Bradley Cooper but that movie (and Cooper's portrayal of Face) really impressed me.

    Batman Begins and The Dark Knight
    I hated every Batman film to a point where they put me off Batman for like a decade, those two I loved though.

    Toy Story 3
    I never really liked the other Toy Story Movies, I liked the characters but they didn't wow me like they did everyone else though. I was really, really surprised.

    Superman Returns
    Like with Batman I hadn't seen a Superman film I liked until this one.

    Star Trek
    Kind of didn't think they'd pull it off and whatnot.

    The Incredible Hulk
    The 2003 Hulk film was ghastly, and the Hulk in general fails when he's compared to the other Marvel characters. I thought this one was good though, but I think that ws to do with Edward Norton and its a huge fail on Marvel Studio's that they couldn't agree a contract with him for the Avengers Sad

    Saw IV, V and VI.
    I saw the first three and was bored and annoyed.
    Now I'm in awe.

    Avatar.

    I didn't want to see it in the beginning, I thought it looked really lame; but my brother wanted to see it so I took him. I ended up buying an Avatar t-shirt right after we walked out of the theater. Facepalm

    The Dark Knight. I hate superhero stories, but I just saw it last night for the first time and it was great.

    I thought it looked stupid. It's now one of my favourite movies.

    Up.
    I've never been a huge fan of Pixar, but this blew me away.

    Shifty
    It was that good.
    When it first came out I was utterly against this movie. I had incredibly low expectations for a long time, because I didn't like the idea of "updating" it and making it all action-packed. I thought the Basil Rathbone movies were closest to canon, because I'm incredibly biased when it comes to black and white films.

    But then I realized that the new SH was closer to canon (especially in poor Watson's case) and that, after watching Chaplin, Robert Downey Jr. is a fucking good actor.

    So I watched it and fell head over heels in love. In Love

    thinking more of 'classics';
    One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest

    everyone raves about it but I was actually expecting to be a little let down (despite ft Jack Nicholson) like i was with 'Avatar'.
    I'm glad I was wrong, it's an incredible movie.

    Watchmen.

    I'm not usually into epic, action films but this surprised me. I loved it. I'd even go so far as to say it is now my favourite movie.

    It definitely proved me wrong.
    Same tehe I thought it would be your average horror/gore fare and unfunny, but it actually became one of my favorites.

    Like, I wanted to see it because of Brandon Routh and Chris Evans and expected it to be just watchable, but ended up really really liking it. Though it did give me this horrid migraine for hours D:
