Opinions About Specific Movies and their DVDs

Titanic Dull
The Matrix Way over-hyped: couldn't see what the fuss was all about
Terminator 2 Haven't seen all of it: just the the thumbs-up at the end, which hasnt inspired me
Star Wars Always loved the original, but now that I've seen the prequels maybe i should go back and see if they are as good as I thought (the DVDs appear impressive)
Godzilla Seen it - forgotten it
Independence Day I own the DVD, even though i hate the movie. I bought for it as a demo disc back in the day. Will have to revisit and see if it still stacks up.
