Favourite joke - "Oh! Now we see the violence inherent in the system!". Seeing it in a cinema with Terry Jones was pretty magic




Are you still together?

I like this format.

Crazes of the year: A whole bunch of Claire Denis films, watched a fair few Jackie Chan, Bruce Lee, Asian cinema in general, Godard,

Continuing preoccupations: Chaplin, SciFi, Romanian New Wave,

Revelation of the year: The Passion of Joan of Arc at a theatre with a brand new live score performed. Sure, Departures was my favourite new film at the cinema this year, but this was something else.

Stuff I caught up on: Keaton shorts, continuing my change of heart to actually finding him quite amazing

Happiest surprises: Cleo de 5 á 7 at the cinema, if...., Belle De Jour

Biggest disappointments: Cop Out, Uncle Boonmee, The Headless Woman

Some favourite moments: Trying to work out exactly what Histoire(s) du Cinema was about, but still giving it 5 stars, watching Lord of the Rings back to back, taking my children to see Back to the Future at the cinema,
Some least favourite moments: Taking my children to see Alvin and the Chipmunks 2: The Squeakquel, Ninja Assassin,

Best film I saw at the cinema: No challenge here, it was seeing 2001 A Space Odyssey on a humongous screen with a symphony orchestra playing the soundtrack live. Breathtaking, unforgettable.

Crazes of the year: Mr Moto & Charlie Chaplin. The films of Val Kilmer.

Continuing preoccupations: Getting films and never watching them. Wondering whether I should have a go at this BluRay stuff that all the kids talk about.

Revelation of the year: That I'm too old to get Scott Pilgrim

Stuff I caught up on: Christmas films. After one egg nog too many Elf is funny but the Santa Claus still isnt

Happiest surprises: When my wife on my birthday.. oh sorry in films.. umm dunno that Sherlock wasn't terrible

Biggest disappointments: Pretty much every film last year, especially Iron Man 2 as I love the first

Best film I saw at the cinema: Finally watching Avatar in 3D, I thought it was ace

Funneh.

Crazes of the year: Truffaut, Rohmer, Antonioni, and Preston Sturges, but also discovering work of directors previously unknown to me.

Continuing preoccupations: French New Wave directors

Revelation of the year: There are no good films and bad films, but films people consider bad for being too much are more likely to be up my alley than films that are bad for not being enough.

Stuff I caught up on: eh, everything, it's only my 2nd year of serious movie watching (2008 was the starting point, but I saw 40 great films, maybe, probably less - this year I saw over a 100 at least)

Happiest surprises: Scott Pilgrim - I was sceptical but it's comfortably the best film of 2010 I've seen

Biggest disappointments: letting the rating spiral out of control, resulting in about 200 8's, and at the same time watching less movies than at the beginning of the year

Best film I saw at the cinema: Back to the Future, though Pilgrim came close

What's this? Miles being unspeakably right? I'm worried.

Just rewatched it, it is an incredible film. I say we all campaign for Wright to win Best Director.

I'll post the final stats and a wrap-up of all the wonderful films I saw this year in Miles' Thread (to let this sink, and my thread rise ), after my exams (ie. next weekend, though I have more exams afterwards)

Following the trend...

Crazes of the year: Spielberg and short films

Continuing preoccupations: Watching anything and everything, but TV taking up too much time. The internet keps me from watching things as well (it's all Nick Park's fault!)

Happiest surprises: Spongebob Squarepants Movie. It was awesome.

Biggest disappointments: The Repulsion, but I shouldn't have been surprised given that Polanski's crap anyway.

Some favourite moments: The Two Towers and ROTK complete with live score, and then seeing Howard Shore. Seeing some early Disney short films.

Best film I saw at the cinema: Obviously, The Lord Of The Rings with live score, I can't think of any other films which would be so outstanding in that format, New stuff, Toy Story 3 by a country mile.

I knew it was you and Jayb, I just couldn't remember which was which.

I'm not sure how I feel about having Jayb's head on Kate's body.
