Yeah, you’ve probably wondered… Project X?? The lowest grossing film among the 10 is the number 1 most downloaded movie of 2012. What the heck is that movie?

Actually, I’m one of those 8.7 million people who downloaded this cult flick and it was a decent fun movie to watch. It’s about a group of friends (starred by a bunch of unknowns) who started a party while the parents were out just to impress a girl. The party snowballed into something really epic and it was hilarious witnessing how things slowly got out of control. Oh, and it was shot in a first-person point of view ala Blair Witch so if you’re not a fan of that shaky camera, stay out of this movie.

Out of the 10 movies above, I’ve seen all except Twilight, Ice Age, and Sherlock Holmes, and that’s by choice. Although I’m now curious if Sherlock Holmes is any good. How about you? Have you seen all 10?
