1. Beauty & the Beast (Trousdale and Wise, 1991)
I've eulogised about this elsewhere, so suffice to say it's Disney's best film, and it'll take a strong contender to knock this from the number 1 spot at the end of the year. (10/10)

Second tier, for me, behind Bambi, Dumbo, Pinocchio, The Lion King and Snow White. It's still really good though.


Ah, there's not a kick in the arse between all those, really, but I've always been partial to the Beauty & the Beast fairytale, even before the film.
Besides, this month's Total Film also rates it Disney's Number 1, so that must mean I'm right. Er...mustn't it?

Have they only seen Disney since 1990? That would be a reasonable enough call, for me. I'm very fond of Lilo and Stich, though.

Think they were rating all 49 features, but only glanced at it in the shop today - think The Jungle Book was No.2 and Pinocchio No.3. Then the shop guy came over and told me to buy something or get the hell out. Made me pack up my deckchair and sandwiches and everything.

Some people simply don't understand the concept of customer service - it's a travesty.

BTW - vis a vis your signature - have you seen Boardwalk Empire? The sheriff might not be redneck enough, but he has several of the corrupt characteristics.

It's on my list to things to see this year, and that only increases my anticipation. If only he could have been played by Clifton James....

It's fun, it has heart and it is has some of Disney's most interesting animation (that is not Atlantis: The Lost Empire), so yeah, I love it.

I would add The Emperor's New Groove too. Just for Kronk.

Rating: Awesome

7. The Heartbreak Kid (Elaine May, 1972)
Like Reb, I was a bit disappointed given the praise Linehan and Matthews gave it on Fr Ted night. Although it has one of my favourite lines ever.

3. The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford (Andrew Dominik, 2007)

Not as OMG BRILLIANT as I had remembered it


NOOOO still high praise I guess...

But I've seen it three or four times now and its just perfectly made in every department, absolutely wonderful film.

I was really underwhelmed by it.


That's because you're a gaping asshole.

Agree with you on all your ratings of the ones you've seen though, fair play.

I just realised I haven't reserved a space this year; I really don't think I have much time for films! I'm on the last episode of the second episode of The Wire (better with every viewing) then I'm making my way through the Thick Of It/Peep Show/Summer Heights High. So no movies for me until like March.

1. Soviet Toys (1924, Dziga Vertov, Russia)
Whilst it's obviously impossible for me – or anyone really – to fully understand everything that goes on in this ten minute silent animated short, there are enough moments here to make it relevant to our own times – the money spewing out of our 'lead character's' guts, only for the bank to swallow them up being one obvious example, the soldiers manipulated to form a giant Russian Doll another (the theme of state control over free thought seems to run through the film quite often). But, for the most part, "Soviet Toys” remains almost willfully beguiling, and although that's actually quite fun I'd quite like to know why a bunch of Russian people turn into a Christmas tree at the film's finale. I love the surrealism, though, and it's quite an enjoyable – even if brief and at times confusing – experience whilst it lasts. 3/5.

2. Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me (1999, Jay Roach, USA)
Inferior sequel to what was already a pretty poor film. Austin (Mike Myers) finds out his wife (Liz Hurley) is a fem-bot, and is obviously overjoyed at the prospect of single life again. He's sent back to the 60s to thwart Doctor Evil's (Myers again) plan to blow up the world, fall in love with a 'beautiful' American (Heather Graham) and tussle with the world's largest henchman, Fat Bastard (Myers once more). The main problem with the second Powers outing can be seen from this plot outline – this is a film that finds calling an obese Scottish man 'Fat Bastard' absolutely hilarious. Of course, it is, if you're twelve, or an idiot, which the vast majority of the people involved in making this film surely were. Worse still, it recycles a lot of poor jokes from the first film, and – of course – Roach would continue to re-iterate the very same 'humorous' moments in Powers' third outing. I really don't understand nowadays why these two sequels are even regarded as sufficient to the original film, let alone good comedies in their own right; they're basically unimaginative and base re-hashes of the same stock of jokes. Pathetic really. 1/5.

4. Black Christmas (1974) - I watched half of this before watching the scream trilogy, and the final half this morning. It probably suffered due to this. I wasnt originally thinking so much about the rules of the slasher film, and instead just enjoyed the set up and the fairly well done first person shots of the first couple of deaths, showing that Clark didnt feel the need to rely on the cheap shocks in the background the a lot of horror films do. However when I came back to it, I was thinking too much about it followed the rules of the horror film, and picking apart the more obvious flaws of the film (the most inept police in cinema, the fact that the murders are so loud that the girls would be able to hear the killings without the phone, the ridiculous ending). Also, as far the christmas hof, it didnt really make that much of a use of the christmas setting, and could have taken place at any holiday. 7/10

5. Megamind - This could have been great, but there were a few things which have gone wrong along the way. There are far too many jokes aimed at the adult audience (the constant Brando impression being the most obvious), the voices dont match the characters all that well (and Jonah Hill still manages to annoy me even without being on the screen), the pace the storyline moves along at as well as the constant changing of sides could alienate some of the younger viewers, and the joke hit rate. Its such a shame as a little more care, and this could have been one of the animations of the year. - 6/10

8. Love and other drugs - Overlong, too much advertising and a brother with a story that doesnt make any sense were the main problems with this fairly run of the mill romcom. - 5/10

Nah. The very best Disney was a tape I had when I was a kid, the first half was Ichabod and Mr. Toad and the second half was A Disney Halloween, all clips from Fantasia, The Old Mill, Donald and the Gorilla, Pluto's Judgment day, etc.

Features

4. Bee Movie (1st view, 2007, Steve Hickner/Simon J. Smith) - 4/5*
More enjoyable than most of the animated films from Dreamworks, with perhaps a greater emphasis on story and jokes than pop culture gags and big names.


Shorts

I had a great time last year looking up old cartoons on youtube, and this year my great aim is to work my way through all the films that have been nominated for the Best Animated Short Oscar. I've seen a great many of them before, but there's also a lot I haven't even heard of. I was going to start a thread but that'd be boring for everybody, so I'll just list them in here as I go. Starting with those from 1932...


1. Flowers and Trees (1932, Burt Gillett)
Brilliant Disney cartoon from the Silly Symphonies series and easily deserving of the Oscar. Not seen it in years, despite owning the first Sillly Symphonies DVD set. I really need to try and work thought them as well.

3. Mickey's Orphans (1931, Burt Gillett)
Mickey, Minnie and Pluto find and abandoned basket filled with kittens, who wreak havoc in the house during christmas. Had I seen it a few weeks back, I probably would have voted for this in the Christmas poll.

5. It's Got Me Again (1932, Rudolf Ising)
An early Merry Melodies cartoon in which a group of mice sing, dance and play musical instruments, only to be attacked by a cat.

The Junky's Christmas (Nick Doncin, Melodie McDaniel, 1993, USA, Short Film)- 4/5

A curious claymation with William S. Burroughs narrating the titular story from his novel, Interzone. Told in a manner that spoofs most Christmas specials of its kind, the tale involves the Christmas day of a Junkie just released from a 72 hour stay in a police jail. It is beautifully crafted, quite sensible and sweet (yes, you have just read that) in tone and hearing Burroughs narrating is always a joy.

Scott Pilgrim Vs the World (Edgar Wright, 2010)
Some really fun and funny stuff going on here, even if it feels like an extended episode of Spaced. Pity the central story revolved around the drippy Ramona and the intensely irritating Scott Pilgrim, though - I'm sure I wasn't the only one that wanted the World to win. Still, the rest of the cast are good value. (8/10)

06. Conspiracy Theory (1997, Richard Donner, USA) - 3/5
There's something delightfully tongue-in-cheek about the majority of Conspiracy Theory. Like Capricorn One, the idea of conspiracies actually being real is fully embraced by Donner and Helgeland and given a sort of bizarre life that pokes fun at the concept on a regular basis - at one point, a computer program that scans book purchases in New York throws up The Catcher in the Rye, leading a mysterious armed force travelling in silent black helicopters to Mel Gibson's character on the basis of pure coincidence, and leading to a great shot where Gibson sees the helicopter hovering 20ft above the street and dropping troops in a window, something nobody else on the street seems to notice because the helicopter is 'silent'. Gibson and Stewart add to this comic absurdity with their performances, Gibson's unhinged conspiracy nut and Stewart's comic-book villain complementing the film's initial approach to conspiracy theories in general. However, the film's undoing is how gutless it truly is in pursuing that absurdity to the end - rather, the film becomes increasingly serious as it goes on, Gibson's character serving more as blithe comic relief to counterpoint an actual conspiracy that's half-assed and treated with unnecessary gravitas. This really could've been a great action comedy if Helgeland hadn't thought a dodgy romantic element and a generic ending were what the film needed. As it is, it's alright - enjoyable but disposable.

*SOME SPOILERS*
"Through the forest I carry the mail/Singing better than a nightingale/As great a lover as postman/And particular friend of the mighty Tarzan."
8. Tarzan and the Mermaids (Robert Florey, 1948) - The last, and by far the least, of the Weissmuller Tarzans. It's stultifying, truth be told, with a risible storyline utilising a hammy George Zucco, and an inexplicable number of terrible songs (please see above), crooned by John Laurenz. The only brightspots are the snippets of Robert-Florey-does-Robert-Flaherty faux-documentary footage, some decent underwater photography, a bit where loads of stuntmen leap off a cliff and the unexpected octopus duel (it won't be unexpected anymore; sorry). The remaining 61 of the 64 minutes consist of Tarzan swimming and people getting into and out of boats (calling to mind that famous review of They Were Expendable; alas, the similarities end there), as well as those bloody songs. Even Johnny Sheffield and the decent Cheetas had buggered off by this time. RKO's revival of the popular MGM series ultimately created one minor classic of its kind (Desert Mystery), two enjoyable timewasters (Triumphs and Huntress), a pair of iffy, cheesy romps and this dud. (1.5)
