PIGEON ARMY'S JUMPING ON THAT CRAZE BANDWAGON


FILMS

Crazes: Steven Soderbergh, Jean-Pierre Melville, Errol Morris, films about the Second Sino-Japanese War, conspiracy films.
Continuing preoccupations: Song Kang-ho, Choi Min-sik, the rest of the Korean New Wave.
Revelations: That Final Destination 3 is actually an incredible film and one I love dearly. That Hong Kong action cinema really has a lot of storytelling quirks that I just can't abide. That documentaries aren't all boring talking heads shit. That China may still be a little bit sore about the Japanese occupation.
A few performances that stuck with me: Matt Damon in The Informant!, Lee Byung-hun in I Saw the Devil, Hideo Nakaizumi in City of Life and Death, Takeshi Kitano in Battle Royale, David Hyde Pierce in The Perfect Host, Charlize Theron and Patton Oswalt in Young Adult, Charlotte Gainsbourg in Antichrist.
Stuff I caught up on: Soderbergh and Mann.
Happiest surprises: The Perfect Host being such an off-kilter little exhibition piece for the always-underrated Hyde Pierce. That Joshua Marston is making movies again - The Forgiveness of Blood is easily one of the year's best and it's a welcome return. That I was wrong about Metropolis originally - it's fantastic, bordering on phenomenal at points. That Final Destination 3 isn't just the guilty pleasure I'd initially pegged it as.
Biggest disappointments: Twinkle Twinkle Lucky Stars marginalised some great martial artists so it could play sexual harrassment for laughs. Sons of the Desert wasn't funny. Viva Riva! didn't actually pulse with the raw energy of the Kinshasa underworld that had been promised. The President's Barber was just mediocre.
Worst films: Eagle Shadow Fist was ugly and incompetent. A Christmas Story was obnoxious in its forced, pantomimish whimsy. Black Sun was disgusting and straight-up degrading to survivors of the Nanking Massacre. Epic Movie was genuinely insulting.
Some favourite moments: The unending standoff between North and South in the village centre in Welcome to Dongmakgol. Wong's and Mr Yee's final dinner in Hong Kong in Lust, Caution, the how-to guide for generating organic sexual chemistry between performers. The betrayal on the overpass in Le Samourai. The beautiful final scene in 3-Iron. Another dinner scene, this one between Chow Yun-Fat, Jiang Wen and Ge You in Let the Bullets Fly. The fallout from Choi Min-sik forcing his way into a taxi that currently has a passenger in I Saw the Devil.
Favourite jokes: Faisal running around the paddocks in Four Lions. "It's so hot out here...milk was a bad choice..." - Anchorman. Skinner's 'gingernut' quip in Hot Fuzz. The dojo scene in Black Dynamite, complete with terrified sparring partner and Aunt Billy's phone call. But none of these compare to a genius match cut in FD3 - an overhead shot of two girls who have burned to death in tanning beds cuts to an overhead shot of their coffins being lowered into their graves. Fantastic gallows humour.
Best film I saw at the cinema: I Saw the Devil.

Having had a really poor viewing year (only got into double figures twice), I'm refusing to post my final top 100 list just yet. For starters, I defo ain't gonna make 100!
I'm on a last push to get my total up before the year's out. No matter how shite the films!

067) I Love You Man (John Hamburg, USA, 2009, Broadcast) - 4.0

Okay-ish. On a par with (and thus, sharing a score with) Forgetting Sarah Marshall.

By the way, I'll probably do my customary statistical bullshine thing early in the new year, so if there are any o' y'all foo's who ain't got they lists up to date, get that shit done soon if you care to be included accurately.

I guess what I'll do is I'll make an assumption that if your list hasn't been updated since a certain date (like 1st Dec maybe) then you'll get stuck in with the group of folk who started lists but abandoned them / couldn't be arsed / died / entered a convent / were banned / or (were) otherwise disappeared.
But you'll still be included in some manner.

If you're one of those people who's only listing 100 films, even though you've seen more, pop a total film count in your list post if at all possible.
And if you've mixed short films in with features, well... you're a blummin' berk.

Also, I'm only gonna check through the first, say, 20 pages of this thread looking for people's lists, so if your list is later than that but you want to be included, let me know the page number your list is on.

Ta's.

41. Where The Wild Things Are (Spike Jones, 2009)
First time seeing it since the cinema, and I still love it. I like Records plays the Max as a predominantly good kid , but with a prominent bratty side. One of the things I noticed this time around was the importance of Alexander. Considering a large part of the reason Max goes to the island is that he and his sister are growing apart, Alexander is obviously the insecure side of Max who just wants a bit of attention, but is largely ignored. I love the soundtrack as well.

067) I Love You Man (John Hamburg, USA, 2009, Broadcast) - 4.0

Okay-ish. On a par with (and thus, sharing a score with) Forgetting Sarah Marshall.




I thought it was quite good - the best bromance i've seen, if that doesn't sound like damnign with faint praise. Things that I liked about it were
1) Paul Rudd, who joins Andreas Iniesta and Ryan Gosling on my man-crush list.
2) The Incredible Hulk
3) How it resisted the obvious temptation to do a Connery Bond impression in favour of Dalton.
4) It encouraged women to give more BJs
(7/10)

Edit: I'll update my list on Page 1 around 3rd Jan - don't have the full list on my home computer. Gonna struggle to make it to 90 films, though

From: The internet
Walk the Line (James Mangold, 2005) – Pretty good Johnny Cash biopic: somewhat cliched, but intelligently framed and blessed with a few special moments (particularly the letters-from-Folsom sequence) and a flatly amazing performance by Reese Witherspoon as June Carter – the singer's second wife. Joaquin Phoenix is conflicting as the lead: his acting isn't bad, but it's hard to ever believe that he is Cash, as he doesn't look or – more importantly – sing like him. Or all that tunefully. For all the film's strengths, the video to Hurt contains more emotion into those four shattering minutes than this manages in 136. (3), just about.

Tropic Thunder (Ben Stiller, 2008) – OK action comedy about a bunch of contrasting actors and what happens when their war movie turns horribly real. There's already a great movie about this and it's called The Stunt Man. This one has a cracking opening 20, stuffed with movie in-jokes, and a decent final five, but little in between. Robert Downey, Jr. and Steve Coogan are both good value (Coogan saying "… What?” is somehow the funniest joke in the film), but Jack Black and Danny McBride are dreadful. (2.5)

Win Win (Thomas McCarthy, 2011) is another very interesting film from the awesomely talented writer-director McCarthy, if not quite the masterpiece that his previous two films were. A desperate lawyer (Paul Giamatti) takes financial advantage of an old client with dementia (Burt Young), then finds himself feeling protective towards the man's grandson (Alex Shaffer), who keeps saying "a'ight”. Dealing with McCarthy's pet theme of an outsider connecting with unlikely soulmates, it's an intelligent, unsentimental and extremely entertaining movie, though it's ever so slightly baggy and the treatment of Shaffer's drug addict mum (Melanie Lynskey) isn't very clear. (3.5)

Good to see Win Win getting a little recognition. I too thought it was a very good film and thought Alex Shaffer was excellent.    

182. The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (Fincher, 2011) USA/UK/SWE/GER
Well directed, stylish looking but it just reminded me why I'm not such a fan of the source material. It's all just a bit dull and obvious.  

215. Sherlock Holmes 2: A Game of Shadows (Ritchie, 2011) USA
Jared Harris made an interesting and entertaining Moriarty, that's about it.   

217. Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol (Bird, 2011) USA
Run Tom Cruise Run! Simon Pegg is annoying in this series.

How bad must Pegg be to be singled out as the annoying one in a Tom Cruise film?

It's still up there, the top 9 would all fall in my top 25/30.  I was expecting The Life and Death of a Porno Gang to raise more eyebrows.

It was The Heartbreak Kid that shocked me, until I realised it wasn't the Stiller one. Big sigh of relief.



Last update from me I think.


Shorts

13. Ice Age: A Mammoth Christmas (2011, Karen Disher)
The weakest Ice Age creation yet, but the Scrat bits were as good as ever.

A poor year for me, 302 films overall including two films watched twice. Probably the worst year since about 1999. I wonder if I'll ever manage the 768 from 2005 again?


Combined with your TV list though, it'd be a pretty impressive year.

You've got Sons of the Desert below PotC sequels - I now consider you pwnd on L&H

There's a couple of older films I love on your list - like Very Important Person, which I managed to catch a couple of times myself this year.

I can't remember if I caught your Skeletons review - I'm really pleased it scored so highly, it's such a brilliant little film

If it helps, the top 5 films are about equal. And there are other L&H I like more than Pirates Looking at the list now though, there's an awful lot of swapping around I could do.

For Skeletons, I mentioned Inception in a very brief review, saying that I understood why you tended to mention both films together, and that Skeletons was the better film.

It was The Heartbreak Kid that shocked me, until I realised it wasn't the Stiller one. Big sigh of relief.



Have you ever seen the Grodin one?
