Films of the Year
« on: January 06, 2012, 03:23:11 PM »
I really enjoy a good film but last years quality offerings was incredibly thin on the ground. My favourites were:

The Guard
Drive
Midnight in Paris
Bridesmaids
The Artist


Did I miss anything?
Watching: Tosh.0
Listening: Love & Money
Playing: Professor Layton and the Mask of Miracle

I don't think I watched any new movies in 2011. As for 2012, already seen the new Studio Ghibi movie which came out this month (got the special edition bluray :))

Last good movie I fully enjoyed was Moon (2009) I think source code was last year? Then that.

Moon and Source code were brilliant and both directed by David Bowie's son.

Indeed. It's a shame he hasn't released anything recently or any word of what hes working on film wise.

I hope he ends up doing Mute at some point, but I don't think its his current project.

These are also good creative movies.

Oscar Nominations are out today and as I've only seen Argo I have to back that one. A great film.

Went to see that in the cinema as well. Funniest thing happened though: 3 people left 5 minutes into the movie. Seemed it wasn't the Sci-Fi they expected from the title *sigh*

Very bizarre. ~Silver Linings Playbook is well worth seeing too, if you get the chance.

I have to agree with Iron man 3 and The wolverine. In fact I have stopped going to the cinema for sometime but those movies made me go back to the cinema.
