I didn't think there'd be anything I could second, but I have seen Bob Dylan: No Direction Home, so I'll second that. There's obviously going to be a lot of abstaining from most of us (me most of all), so I'd have no problem with you throwing in everything.

Abstain - don't care to see Potter. Flightplan was bad though.
Darwin's Nightmare - I Netflixed Dark Water to see Connelly, and she was the only thing worth seeing in that crap.
