Yeah she was a right bell end. Pretty much imported the same character she played in the highly tedious Tamara Drewe.

See I slightly disagree here, because I think she shows really good comic timing and she is annoying it is in an entertaining way. In some ways I liked her more in TD just because that was such a terrible film that she did provide some welcome comic relief

In fairness EB that's a good point. She certainly has good comic timing - but she annoyed the hell out of me!

So Elab, how's 35 & above shaping up?

I'm still mainly left hand typing at the moment but I'm hoping this weekend, when I can rest my hand a bit from work, that I can try and get through this to get it finished as far as possible.

D'you need a hand wrapping it up Elab?

Or should we just all accept A Separation was the best film of last year and be done with it?

= No. 38



The Warrior (O'Connor, 2011)

Fighting and family angst from a good cast.

See also: Crying Fist.



Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Pt 2 (Yates, 2011)

Closely-adapted series finally comes to an end.


No. 37



Inbetweeners
(Palmer, 2011)

It's no Intelligence Men.

See also: Well, I guess you've already seen the TV series.

No. 36



Neds (Mullan, 2011)

A tale of Glasgow that essentially takes the world of A Sense of Freedom into the next decade as Mullan tells the tale of a catholic boy growing up in 70s Glasgow and reaps the benefit of the care taken with the young lead's performance.

See also: A Sense of Freedom/Orphans.

No. 35



Poetry (Lee, 2010)


A sublime tale of a faded beauty grasping at the attempt to create something as she faces oncoming dementia and the fallout from her grandson's participation in the attack on a young girl. Yoon Jeong-Hee yet again demonstrates Oscar's inability to see beyond the end of its nose when it comes to acting awards.

See also: Secret Sunshine, but not any of the several hundred Korean TV dramas obsessed with unlikely depictions of Alzheimer's.

No. 34



Tyrannosaur (Considine, 2011)

Another of my favourite posters from this years selection. Following on from his short Dog Altogether, Considine expands on the tale of the rage filled Joseph getting wonderful performances from all concerned.

No. 33



The Guard (McDonagh, 2011)

Unfairly compared to his brother, The Guard succeeds on its own merits. A couple of lulls, sure, but a fascinating lead, a great double act and a fatalistic sense of humour reward repeat viewings.

= No. 31


Crazy Stupid Love (Ficarra, 2011)

Ryan Gosling.

Now take a moment for the male contingent on the Board to recompose themselves. And their trousers.



X-Men 1st Class (Vaughn, 2011)


Oh hello, how are you? And what's your skill? Have a little time to show off. And hi! You are? And what's your skill? Please give yourself a little induction. And you? Please - feel free to have your own little moment. And again. And again. Oh, bollocks - are those the end titles? One of the leads baby-daddy's generated more press.

Harry Potter - meh.

Inbetweeners - like it, not sure if it'll stretch to a sequel, though.

The Guard - very funny. Gleeson predictably awesome.

I forgot this thread existed. Anyways...

The Inbetweeners Movie - The makers of The Hangover franchise could learn a thing or two from watching this. Lewd and crude, but with a lot of wit and heart.

The Guard - Massively underwhelmed by this.

Crazy, Stupid, Love - I had fun with this. For the most part it's a refreshingly cliché free rom-com, and there's no Heigl or Hudson in it. Which is always a good thing.

Warrior - Corny but compelling stuff.

Tyrannosaur - A really tough but admirable piece of work. Olivia Colman's performance went unrecognised during the awards rounds, and that is frankly total bullshit.

X-Men: First Class - It's OK. Rose Byrne and January Jones both looked yummy in it, but beyond that I'm struggling to think of anything memorable about the flick. Apparently there's something up with Fassbender's accent? Could someone clear that up for me?

Warrior – Not interested.
Harry Potter – Eh
Inbetweeners – Not interested.
NEDS – Wasn’t all that interested but having seen some folk’s thoughts on the forum I’ll have to check it out at some point.
Poetry – Fantastic film, finished top of my own list.
Tyrannosaur – Good but not great, some ‘lovely’ performances.
The Guard – Gleeson is superb.
CSL – No still don’t love it or indeed like it that much at all.
First Class – Massively underwhelming and not nearly as entertaining as the first two. I still don’t understand much of the adulation thrown at either McAvoy or Fassbender.

Warrior, some good acting, but the film was about an hour too long and by the end I just wanted them both to break their backs in ring. And the Hardy backstory had me rolling their eyes.

Harry Potter - Bleh

Inbetweeners - Excellent. Not as funny as the series, but the dance scene alone makes it one of the funniest films of last year.

Neds - Incredible

Poetry - Amazing, but still only the director's third best film.

Tyrannosaur - How the hell did Colman not get into every award ceremony going?

The Guard - Hilarious, I think the Ode to Billie Joe scene is what Tarantino has been trying to do all these years.

Crazy Stupid Love - Very good

X-men - I never got the love for any of the X-men films.

I really enjoyed X-Men. That may be due to my practically indecent obsession with Fassbender though.

I really want to see both The Guard and Tyrannosaur - they completely passed me by when they were in the cinemas.

Solid performances, but the choice to make everything so overly dramatic lowered the piece to the level of some god awful soap opera. Cringe worthy, very, very cringe worthy.

Warrior - a kind of nuts & bolts fighting film heightened by brilliant turns by Hardy & Nolte.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Pt 2 - a good end to a long, long series - although some of the key moments were somewhat rushed.

The Inbetweeners - kinda suffers from the TV holiday special syndrome, but it's a comedic masterpiece compared to the lazy & nasty Hangover.

Neds - really impressive & doesn't slip into kitchen sink despite its nature - although it loses momentum towards the end.

Tyrannosaur - really impressive debut from Considine. It's not hyperbole either to state that Colman's performance is one of the best in any film from recent years. The lack of bafta acknowledgement was nothing short of a disgrace. Well done empire for getting that right at least.

The Guard - Gleeson's great but the film itself, not so much.

X-Men 1st Class - Had it all been about Magneto & Profressor X, this would have been a blockbuster treat. Still very decent though & much better than the god awful last two X-Men related films.

Poetry has been on the want to see list for the past couple of years, little interest in pursuing Crazy, Stupid, Love to be honest.

No. 30



Bridesmaids (Feig, 2011)

Female attempt at Hangover market which, while superior (at least it doesn't glorify a rapist), is perhaps not as funny as it thinks it is.

No. 29



Incendies (Villeneuve, 2010)

Radiohead did well in the soundtracks this year (see also Confessions eg) - Oscar nominated Incendies is the most makjang experience I've had outside of Korean drama and US daytime soap!


No. 28



The Adventures of Tintin: Secret of the Unicorn (Spielberg, 2011)

The animation didn't work for everyone but Snowy was lovely, the leather fetish nicely disturbing and it very occasionally touched on the joy of the chase last seen in Raiders.


No. 27



The Secret World of Arietty (Yonebayashi, 2010)


A lovely animation demonstrating yet again Ghibli's affinity with British fantasy fiction that we grew up with.


No. 26



50/50 (Levine, 2011)


If Rogen wants to persuade people he can act he probably shouldn't be standing beside Gordon-Levitt. True life cancer story.


No. 25



A Separation (Farhadi, 2011)

Sorry Qwerty   Award-winning behemoth from Iran depicting the ins and outs of a couple's separation.


= No. 23



Super 8 (Abrams, 2011)


Where does the line between homage and inept copy-catting end? Is anyone else astonished this placed higher than Spielberg's own film?




The Skin I Live In (Almodovar (2011)

Banderas returns to the Almodovar fold and makes his first decent film in about a decade.

No. 22



The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo (Fincher, 2011)

Insufficiently distinguished remake.

See also: The original

No. 21



Midnight in Paris (Allen, 2011)


Woody's latest.

See also: Lady in the Water

Bridesmaids - I don't care what the crusty old fogies round here say - I really liked it. Although I could have done without the toilet humour.
Incendies - Hugely contrived but utterly compelling. The bus scene was easily the most distressing thing I witnessed in a cinema last year (and that includes the entirety of Snowtown).
Tintin - a set-piece fest really, all-being some very good ones.
Arriety - not Ghilbi's best, but still very very cute & gorgeous to look at.
50/50 - would have preferred less of the chauvinistic Roganism's but it's an honest & genuine portrayal of a difficult situation for any human being. SPOILER (the ending's a cop out though).
A Separation - Magnificent! 24 places too low. Shame on you all!
Super 8 - Rip off or not, I really liked it. I'll have this over soulless bullshit like most big-budgeted fare.
The Skin I Live In - Not as good on second viewing, yet it's still Almodovar's best in years - possibly even his best.
The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo - a pointless remake that exists only for either Fincher fanatics or those too lazy to read subtitles.
Midnight In Paris - Solid if unremarkable. Yet is incredible compared to the abominable Whatever Works.

Now I'm trying to work out what's left that I actually like.

Tintin-Great fun, and a pretty decent adaptation to boot
50/50-Bona fide masterpiece
Super 8-Alright, should not be this high
TGWTDT-I enjoyed it a lot, though I admit I've yet to see the original. Best title sequence of the year though

Warrior - I absolutely loved this. Sure the plot is complete and utter hokum but the performances by Hardy, Nolte and Edgerton are astounding and MMA will never be better portrayed than this.

Harry Potter Hallows 2 - Enjoyable in parts but takes too many liberties with the source material.

Inbetweeners - Loved this, hilarious.

X-Men First Class - I enjoyed this a lot.

Bridesmaids - Absolute drivel.

Tintin - Great fun, the chase scene is incredible.

Arrietty - Top tier Ghibli, amazing.

50/50 - This film nearly made me cry. Great stuff, JGL is incredible and I thought Rogen was pretty damn good. Granted he was actually playing himself but there you go.

TGWADT - Thought this was pretty good. Not seen the original so can't compare.

Bridesmaids is ok, but there's a lot of unfunny scenes and McCarthy was in no way deserving of all the praise that came her way.

Incendies - Didn't really care for it that much.

Tintin - Spielberg's best in over 20 years.

Arrietty - As amazing as you'd expect from Ghibli.

50/50 - Very good, and I liked Rogen in it as well. The guy has always been able to act, he just doesn't stretch himself beyond his comedic persona. But then neither did Stan Laurel.

A Separation - Very good, but I didn't like it as much as others.

Super 8 -

It's better than the majority of Spielberg's films though.

The Skin I Live in - Yeah, very good.

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo - Mara is great. The film isn't.

Midnight in Paris - Should have been higher.

Bridesmaids - yeah, it was OK.

Tintin - some moments of brilliance, but he's a bit of a dullard for a hero.

Super 8 - if you're going to rip someone off, at least have the decency to do it as well as this does.

TGWTDT - better than the original, if nowhere near Fincher's best. Mara should have won the Oscar, though.

Bridesmaid - liked this a great deal. Probably a bit too long at over two hours, but I had fun with. Also: I love Kristen Wiig, and one day we will be married.

50/50 - Joseph Gordon Levitt is very good in this. Seth Rogen's boorish frat boy shtick is wearing thin.

Super 8 - One of those rare summer films that has heart and characters you can actually give a fuck about.

The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo - Preferred this over the Swedish version, and Rooney Mara () did the character proud. Daniel Craig talking in his regular accent was an odd choice, though. And I will never hear Enya's Orinoco Flow in the same way again.

Tin Tin's ace, Super 8 and Dragon tattoo both very good.

Bridesmaids - "At first I did not know it was your diary, I thought it was a very sad handwritten book." was my favourite line it it. As a film, it's alright.

Midnight in Paris - so engaging and entertaining, it makes up for its flaws. The guy playing Hemingway was fantastic, as was Adrien Brody.
