The Perks of Being a Wallflower (2012)

One of the best movies I've ever seen.

The Last of the Mohicans (1936)

The classics are usually better than the remakes, but not this time. The 1992 version with Daniel Day-Lewis is much better. This one's a great big bore with awful acting. Bruce Cabot as a Native American warrior is particularly laughable.

The American Astronaut (2001)
It's a gritty b&w space musical. The effects aren't that great, but the acting holds up. This is one of those movies that was never meant to be taken seriously. The plot is interesting enough and unpredictable, the musical aspect doesn't clash with the rest of the movie at all, and the characters do more than just speak their lines, they really add to the amusement factor.

Iron Skies (2012)
This movie has better effects than the one I just mentioned. It's about Nazis invading from the moon, the fact that they made this movie is more interesting than the movie itself because that's where the surprises end. The dialogue / acting portion is weak, they basically turn a black astronaut white and turn him loose, which sounds like it should be a riot, but it's really not. The Palinesqu president doesn't do much but reinforce any person's opinion of Sarah Palin. There was a decent scene towards the end involving a hitler salute.

One of my all time favorite films! It's a film that goes its own way and doesn't apologize for it.

Tremors

Where comedy meets horror and sci-fi. The first is a series where underground monsters threaten the people of a small town inolated in Nevada. Great fun.

Make sure you check out the underrated sequel, Tremors 2: Aftershocks. You don't need to bother with Part 3, Part 4, or the TV series, however.

Way ahead of you. I have all four on DVD. I like them all. I think they each have their merits.

Warm Bodies (2013) - the opening of the movie is like reading paragraphs after paragraph of people writing here on wrongplanet.

That was my opinion too. It made me laugh so hard. :lol:

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. This is now my favorite song:

Also, Thorin, Fili and Kili are too handsome for dwarves, although I do not remember ever reading anything about dwarven ugliness (as far as I remember, Tolkien merely described them as shorter, stockier bearded men).
