Why I never watched it before:
I'm rather skeptical about this kind of films, like they could be poor in ideas and focused only on special effects.

Why I decided to watch it:
It just happened. I was told it was too bad I didn't watch it and it really worthed... So, I surrendered.

Well, what do I think after watching it?
I think special effects are really great. That's why the movie is enjoyable, but I still think the story is too poor and ordinary.

Why I never watched it before:
My usual allergy to love stories.

Why I decided to watch it:
It was on tv, it was Christmas time... And then Jude Law, Kate Winslet, Cameron Diaz, Rufus Sewell...

Well, what do I think after watching it?
It didn't interest me at all. I should rely more on my instincts.

Why I never watched it before:
I first watched it on tv years ago, and after few minutes I got bored, thought it was a little childish.

Why I decided to watch it:
Well... I got a new hi-tech tv :P
I was looking for something spectacular and it came to my mind... Almost everybody says good things about this movie. Why not giving a chance?

Well, what do I think after watching it?
I was looking for something spectacular and it really is. And it's funny too. Too bad sometimes it's a little absurd.

Why I decided to watch it:
Because I didn't dislike the first movie and thought I could continue watching the series.

Why did I keep on watching?
Because of Johnny Depp, of course. And because there are evenings I only want to watch something light-hearted.

What do I eventually think of the series?
It's been quite enjoyable, but generally it diappointed me, things seems to be exaggerated for more spectacularity. They overdid, they should have concentraded more on the script and less on absurd scenes. Especially the fourth movie was almost unwatchable. Another lame story and nothing really able to catch me. I found it very very boring. I think the series has run out of ideas and has no more appeal. If Disney will produce other movies I won't watch them.

Why I never watched it before:
I thought it was only for children.

Why I decided to watch it:
I'm so nostalgic that I love things only when they're gone. Seeing all the fuss about the last film made me wanna watch the saga. And I also thought if I'd let some other time pass, I would never tried.

Well, what do I think after watching it?
If I was a child I'd surely say it's awesome. I'm an adult and I say it's surprisingly good.

Why I never watched it before:
Maybe because it's based on a James Ellroy novel, but I got a sense it was a bad copy of L.A. Confidential.

Why I decided to watch it:
It was on tv and I took my chance.

Well, what do I think after watching it?
It's just like I thought. I found it confusing, boring and didn't like actors' performances. It lacks irony and all that sensuality can't save the movie.

Why I never watched it before:
To me it seems another plastic Hollywood blockbuster like Troy, and I didn't like that movie at all. Moreover, I think Colin Farrell and Angelina Jolie weren't the best choice to play Alexander and Olympias. Especially Farrell is totally unsuitable for that role.

Why I decided to watch it:
It was on tv and, after all, it's still a Oliver Stone work.

Well, what do I think after watching it?
I didn't like it. I find it rather boring and Colin Farrell was totally unsuitable for that role.
