Not too many surprises but perhaps one on the list. Alice in Wonderland?

What is amazing is the amount of money Avatar made. Wow?

What's the budget for Avatar 2? $500million for a $4billion return? Yikes...

Alice in Wonderland is worth seeing for the production alone. Incredible visuals besides being a very good movie from Burton. It's also a movie that disappointed the people who like the book - not unlike many other movies.

I still can't figure out why I like Alice in Wonderland. Visually it's a great movie. I'd hoped it would be a darker take on the the story, but it's one of those movies that I'll start up when I can't find anything else to watch.

Dude, are you made of leprechauns? Cause that was awesome!

I'm still surprised to see Stranger Tides in that list, its overseas take was truly impressive. While it's not the best of the series, I think I'll always enjoy those Jack Sparrow's (mis)adventures and I'm still looking forward to the 5th installment.

I find the Transformers movies to be very hard to watch (dialogue, plot, etc). I know they are summer popcorn movies that have lots of action and eye candy, but still....
