Steve vs. The Blockbusters - 2003 onwards

What do you call someone with square tits? Blockbusters.

Juvenile (but funny) gags aside, what's this list I've done now then? Well, since 2004 I haven't been to the cinema much and I've generally, but not always, shied away from the bigger box office hits.

I think it's been a generally sub-conscious thing but as someone who has always loved a nice big budget Hollywood effort or a nice slab of multiplex pleasing nonsense when they're done right, I wanted to see if I had missed much in the last 10 years.

I'm going to spend much of November and December investigating this and watching all, some or fewer from this list. I've deliberately picked films I reckon I might…
