Not a fan of the Paranormal Activity movies, but found this to be much scarier than what others had said

Votes: 354,608 | Gross: $201.57M

This would have to be my favorite guilty pleasure and was my favorite film growing up as a kid, of course now I see its flaws, but I have fond memories of it. I just really like seeing all the big stars in the movie and is just fun to watch IMO I think it is Bay's best, but that really isn't saying much.

Votes: 210,547 | Gross: $184.03M

Not as good as Burton's and nowhere near as good as nolans. I found it to be a fun watch and at least it is better than Batman and Robin

4. Chernobyl Diaries (2012)

Director: Bradley Parker | Stars: Jesse McCartney, Jonathan Sadowski, Olivia Taylor Dudley, Nathan Phillips

Votes: 57,123 | Gross: $18.12M

What can I say, the atmosphere sold me and I rather only see parts of a monster if one cannot afford to show the full one without it looking bad.

5. Cowboys & Aliens (2011)

PG-13 | 119 min | Action, Sci-Fi, Thriller

50 Metascore

Votes: 19,567 | Gross: $23.44M

One of the few Sandler films that I find funny and I find it heart warming and good match to the season. Is it crude, yes, but it doesn't make me roll my eyes and I am actually a fan of the musical numbers and think they are well done and the animation is also fun to watch.

7. Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance (2011)

PG-13 | 96 min | Action, Fantasy, Thriller

34 Metascore

As Johnny Blaze hides out in Eastern Europe, he is called upon to stop the devil, who is trying to take human form.

Votes: 98,207 | Gross: $51.77M

I don't know, I was just really entertained by it and its grindhouse vibe really worked for me and I thought the 3d itself was alright, not the best, but not a waste of money. But I am a Nic Cage fan, so there is probably some bias there

8. Halloween III: Season of the Witch (1982)

Director: Len Wiseman | Stars: Bruce Willis, Justin Long, Timothy Olyphant, Maggie Q

Votes: 359,709 | Gross: $134.53M

It is not as bad as people make it out to be, but it is not the best of series and is yards and away better than A Good Day to Die Hard.

Quite frankly I don't understand the hate this movie has, for me it my 2nd favorite in the entire series(wasn't the biggest fan of the davy jones element introduced in the 2nd one).

Votes: 432,991 | Gross: $336.53M

Emo Peter didn't bug me as much as everyone else and the movie is goofy like the others were. It may not be as good, but it doesn't deserve the rap it has.
