Introducing the French blockbuster. All budgets presented in Euro (films shot prior to Euro switch given their French Franc budget with approximate Euro conversion).

As is to be expected, most of the truly most expensive films concern big action films, high-concept comedies, period pieces and otherwise special-effects laden films, or a combination of some of the above. Another reason for a high budget would be a cast including many big actors.

NEW SHOWS ADDED REGULARLY
It's generally relatively easy to find a film's budget. TV shows are more tricky. Here's a list. If you've got anything to contribute, please do.

In my own opinion of course, and featuring all films released in 2012 I've currently seen. As such, this is an ever-evolving list, but as it currently stands, I consider the first four entries to be excellent, numbers 5 to 14 to be really good, 15 to 18 just a notch below, numbers 19 to 45 fine, 46 to 59 less and less entertaining, 60 to 66 quite average and the last five rather bland.

This list obviously represents solely my personal opinion. I've tried to present the girls roughly in order (in descending order of attractiveness), but it obviously isn't always an easy choice to put one over the other.

This list obviously represents solely my personal opinion. I've tried to present the girls roughly in order (in descending order of attractiveness), but it obviously isn't always an easy choice to put one over the other. I feel that it is ok to call a girl attractive from the age of 16 onwards. As it stands all the girls here are 17 and over. Anyway feel free to comment, but don't forget I am not claiming to present universal truth, only my personal taste.

Here are the recently revealed results of a survey conducted by the TV channel NRJ12 and the magazine FHM among French men to figure out which Female celebrities were considered the most sexy in France. The results aren't necessarily what you'd expect and feature some surprising omissions (ie: no Kate Beckinsale, Elizabeth Hurley or Anna Kournikova), and inclusions of girls you wouldn't think were famous out of the US or whose stars seem to have faded (ie: Paris Hilton, Kim Kardashian). Nevertheless the list is interesting because, unlike if it was made in the US, it doesn't contain only Hollywood celebrities. Interestingly, 2010's number one, swimming champion Laure Manaudou didn't even make the cut this year.
Now on to notable matches:
Angelina Jolie edged past Jennifer Aniston
Christina Aguilera roundly beat Britney Spears
Katy Perry scored way higher than Lady Gaga & Lily Allen
French First Lady Carla Bruni placed slightly higher than American First Lady Michelle Obama
Sorrry about the girls who don't have pictures on IMDB, I guess you'll have to look them up on Google, or Bing, or Yahoo or whaever it is you use.

By now everyone knows there are two types of films in 3D: natively shot (ex. Avatar, The Hobbit, animated films,...) and post-converted.

Post-conversion however comes in several forms:

-3D was always intended from the start of filming and was always part of the creative process (ex. Piranha, Alice in Wonderland, The Avengers,...)

-3D was not initially intended and was a post-production decision from the studio (ex. Clash of the Titans, G.I. Joe: Retaliation, The Last Airbender,..)

And finally there are films that were initially released in 2D, but years down the line have been converted to 3D, with or without the approval/participation of the original creators, sometimes with an accompanying theatrical re-release, sometimes straight to blu-ray. This is the subject of this list

a list of 11 titles
In my own opinion of course, and featuring all films released in 1987 I've currently seen. As such, this is an ever-evolving list, but as it currently stands, I consider numbers 1-2 truly great films just short of excellence, 3-7 perfectly solid entertaining films, 8 also entertaining but a notch below, and the rest rather bad, with 11 being particularly insipid.

In my own opinion of course, and featuring all films released in 2010 I've currently seen. As such, this is an ever-evolving list. PLEASE KEEP IN MIND: it is extremely difficult to rank all these films against one another, so different in style, scale and ambition they are. It's a constant battle between which film was objectively better, which one I personally enjoyed more, which one was more memorable, which one was disappointing, which one was the contrary pleasantly surprising... Even then, the exact position of many films is chosen somewhat arbitrarily in I know I rank it in that area, but that it stands above or under this or that other film is too complicated an issue. Anyway, as the list currently stands, I consider numbers 1-2 superb, 3-37 truly great films just short of excellence, 38-82 perfectly solid entertaining films, 83-120 also entertaining but progressively less and less nice, and from 121 we are entering rather bad territory, with numbers 125 onwards in particular being awful in every way.
