The Island President (2011)
Great insight in global politics regarding environmental issues
I seriously don't get why this documentary scores this low on IMDb. But then again, I've seen weirder ratings on here. Good, to get to the point:
Some call this docu a propaganda film for environmentalists, or for the "island president" himself. Fair enough. But is that necessarily a 'bad' thing? In my opinion, this docu gives a great insight in the complexities (and, perhaps, to an extent the impossibilities) of global governance of environmental issues. I do not think this docu actually leaves you with a positive feeling on how to tackle environmental problems, if ever. Nevertheless, it does provide you a very compelling story of a man who tries to make a difference, though be it a tiny, tiny difference. The island president's role is comparable to that of little David trying to fight gigantic, grotesque Goliath.
A very compelling docu that, I think, you should have seen if you're interested in high-level politics.
The Cabin in the Woods (2012)

I'll not spoil any more effort typing here, then by stating the following: I'd have left after 15 minutes, if my friend didn't want to stay. It just can't get worse.
But as this website doesn't allow me to submit my review with less than 10 lines, I'll just add:
I respect people with different opinions and tastes. It's just very hard for me to imagine one can actually like this (kind of) film.
In the cinema where I was watching it, most people seemed / sounded to feel awkward during the whole film. This due to the awkwardly bad script + acting + 'humour' + all other nonsense.
