    The Phantom Menace came out in 1999, not 2001. In fact there are several incorrect release dates there, maybe they’re going by when they opened in the UK? Still, that can’t be as I know Quantum of Solace opened in the UK in 2008 as well as everywhere else.

    Also, why are there no movies older than from 1989 on the list? Were people not disappointed by films before that year?

      It’s the age-old rule of cinema. Everything over 20-25 years old becomes good. If it wasn’t good, it probably didn’t exist anyway.

      Disappointment was discovered in 1989, with the release of Ghostbusters 2. I thought this was common knowledge.

    I just can’t get over how crappy this list is. Sure, most of the films belong there but was anyone seriously expecting Shrek the Third to be any good? Or Sucker Punch? Or Sex and the City 2? Or friggin Catwoman?!?! And were people really so disappointed by Kill Bill Vol. 2 (and it’s Vol. 2, not Part 2!)?! Sure, it’s not as good as Vol. 1 but it’s still pretty awesome.

    Also, Eyes Wide Shut is a masterpiece.

    Um, where’s “Shutter Island,” the most disappointing piece of shit a master has ever delivered?
