John Rambo was ok. Better than II & III, but that's not saying much. I still think the best option is to watch First Blood & then pretend the others don't exist in what I like to call "the Terminator 3 technique".
Shoot Em Up was better but still not great. Good for some mindless silly action, but it did feel a number of times like it was just trying to be Grosse Point Blank & failing.
[EDIT] - Actually, having re-watched Shoot Em Up a couple of times I've decided it's awesome. I clearly had sense-of-humour-itis when I first watched it because as a mindless pisstake of all things twee & actiony, it's brilliant.
Juno however was awesome, great acting, great script, a great character piece & a fantastic soundtrack.
[EDIT] - More recently I've watched:
Taxidermia - Excellent I thought. Really rather disturbing in parts & quite odd, but very, very funny for it. Nice idea of following three generations (sort of) of a family.
Innocence - Interesting & quite clever. But I wouldn't really say it was that entertaining. I doubt I'll ever want to watch it again.
The Cottage - Meh. Typical 'lost in the wilderness with a nutter' horror movie. With the slight advantage of English wit & irony.
