Oh, and The Grey turned out to be quite and interesting and mature film for someone who made The A-Team and Smokin' Aces.


Good call. In many ways, it's the most underrated & unappreciated film of the year so far.


In my bottom 10 of the year.

Your mum is in my bottom 10 of the year.

For she is sub par when comes to engaging in sexual intercourse.

I think there's plenty of joy in rubbing my hands gleefully for the inevitable fanboy explosion if DKR doesn't get Oscar nominated. And as for Batman films in general, I think we can all agree that there ain't no Bat-flick like an Adam West Bat-flick.


I think it deserves some technical recognition; but I concede probably not in the scriptwriting, direction & performance department.

And yeah, there aint no Bat-flick like an Adam West Bat-flick - as Joel Schumacher found out to his cost.

Dredd I like Dredd, but it wins the biggest trailer spoiler award ever, He looks worse than Stallone,plus the plot is ripped from the The Raid ,which ive seen. Pass


Except, Dredd was written and went into production first. It's just an unfortunate coincidence, no 'ripping off' was done by anyone.

On topic, the first line of the OP says that this year has been a 'geekfest' to rival 1982, which as a Joss Whedon fan, I agree with.

(there are so many films this year I haven't seen yet )

I wouldn't worry though, as you still have the best avatar of the year so far.

It is a fantastic Avatar. I'm just so ashamed I haven't seen Muppets yet .

What would be the last really classic film year?

1999 is generally considered to be the best of our generation isnt it? Saying that, I had a great 2010 and 2011 too. 2007 had the triple-bill of There Will Be Blood, No Country For Old Men and The Assassination Of Jesse James too.

1999 for me.

Off the top of my head* you had :-

Fight Club, The Matrix, Being John Malkovich, Office Space, The Sixth Sense, American Beauty, Magnolia, The Talented Mr Ripley, Sleepy Hollow, Toy Story 2, American Pie, Austin Powers 2, Galaxy Quest, Dogma, Any Given Sunday, Blair Witch Project, The Insider, Audition, The Iron Giant, Cider House Rules, Go, Boys Don't Cry, Three Kings, Man on The Moon, South Park the Movie, Mystery Men, The Hurricane, Election, Ghost Dog, Arlington Road etc.

I'm not a fan of all the above films but I'd say the majority of them were well received with a few being stone cold classics.

* IMDB's list of films of 1999

That was the one I thought of too. D'ont forget Into the Wild, Atonement, La Vie en Rose, Bourne Ultimatum, The Lives of Others, Persepolis, King of Kong, This is England and of course Zodiac.

2007 for me, too...

Into The Wild, Eastern Promises, Knocked Up, Zodiac, Die Hard 4, Assembly, The Bourne Ultimatum, Elizabeth: The Golden Age, 3:10 To Yuma, American Gangster, Wanted, Sweeney Todd, Ghost In The Shell: Solid State Society, and Pirates Of The Caribbean: At World's End are all in my top 100 from that decade. There's also Blood Brothers, City Of Men, Persepolis and Tell No One.

Though despite all of the predictable complaints about dumbing down, unoriginality, etc. I think every year since the middle of the last decade has been pretty consistent for great movies being released.

It's been a decent year so far from what I've seen but the the thing I'm looking forward to most is the final part of Hertzfeldt's Bill Trilogy to be released on dvd. Only then will my life be complete.
