Hate is probably a bit strong, it just should have been a film I loved and I was really disappointed in it.

I will still see Wild Bill at some point.

Allison Janney - Monica Patterson - Margaret

A few years ago when The West Wing ended I wanted Allison Janney to have her own series, either comedy or drama I didnít care, she just needed to be on television again because she is ace. In the single scene afforded her in the utterly staggering Margaret, Janney is like a punch in the face or something equally violent and memorable. The Monica scene is shocking and runs from absurdly comical (given the situation) to honestly distressing, itís less than ten minutes in length but was one of the most defining scenes of 2012 for me, thanks in large part to Allison Janneyís phenomenal turn.





George Clooney - Matt King - The Descendants



I donít totally buy George Clooney as a family man; not really, heís still too shiny to be schlubby but as a man utterly lost and unable to function in the face of adversity, whether it's a coma wifeís infidelity or a teenage daughter who needs help and guidance I think heís extraordinarily good. He has a great run too.

Disagree with you there - wasn't a big fan of the Descendants (though he's fab in the more comedic parts of the film).

Tara Lynne Barr - Roxy - God Bless America



Is Ellen Page better in Super? I think almost certainly but thatís because her character is fantastically mental and she plays it extremely well. However as a similarly dissatisfied teen Barr runís Page to a close finish and unlike the bond between the older male protagonist in Super I believe thereís a little more warmth and heart between Barr and Joel Murrayís nice guy Frank. The best moments of the film arenít the rants against our dumb, cruel society or the bloody reckoning brought against those who perpetrate and feed it (though they are gloriously entertaining in a messy sort of way) but the smaller interactions of these oddballs, they make what could be construed as an unhealthy (snarff) relationship something rather sweet.



Jared Gilman - Sam - Moonrise Kingdom



I am a Wes Anderson fan, I have loved everything the man has produced and Moonrise Kingdom is no different. I thought to put that out there early because Iíve gotten the distinct impression over the last few years that being an Anderson enthusiast makes you superficial, all surface gloss and nothing more. I should probably tell the riveting story of how my brother bought me a copy of Tenenbaums in 2002 to make up for an argument we had and use it as some sort of justificationÖbut I wonít.

As the very serious orphan and soon to be ex Khaki Scout Sam Shakusky (a bespectacled Daniel Boone) Jared Gilman in his first professional role slips easily into Andersonís world. He gives an excellent performance and holds his own against the likes of a long naturalised Bill Murray, Bruce Willis giving (in my view) his best performance in years and the much missed Edward Norton.

Not seen any of these since SWS in Goon. I absolutely hated, with every fibre of my being, Will Poulter in Narnia. Never in my life have I so wished for character to die horribly on screen, and he was almost as bad in Rambow. I'm almost confident he'll be just as bad in this and everything else he ever makes.

That pic of George Clooney makes me think of Dawn of the Dead.

I was going to mention your hatred of him but edited it out. Surely the point in both Rambow and Narnia is that both children are mostly unlikeable (feelings of abandonment and such) but come good in the end? I know Eustace is a little fucker the majority of the time.

Judi Dench - M - Skyfall



How good is Judi Dench as M? So good she (deservedly) survived the (much needed) revolution. Oh and she owns in Skyfall.


Sam Shepard - James Ė Blackthorn



I donít think Iíve seen Sam Shepard since The Right Stuff so it was a pleasure to see the graceful (downright sexy*) screen presence again and surrounded by such a wonderful and beautiful film. As an aged Butch Cassidy, Sheppard is magnetic and gives a real old school feel to the whole proceedings.

Lena Dunham - Aura - Tiny Furniture



To paraphraseÖ
ďUrgh rich people and their problems, urgh rich people and their problems URGH! rich people, their wealthy parents and their problems!Ē


It would be very easy to dislike and question the exploits of hugely successful writer, director and actress Lena Dunham and though I think it is easy for many people, Iíd be interested to know where that sort of criticism comes from. I hesitate to say jealousy because some folks simply donít enjoy the mumblecore section of independent cinema but in the case of Dunham most of what I have read (woo the internet!) amounts to nothing more than blindly vicious personal attacks. Anyway I think Dunham is extremely good in Tiny Furniture playing the absurdly (baiting?) named Aura as she boldly puts herself out there for all to judge as an unflattering awkward graduate.




Charlie Creed-Miles - Bill - Wild Bill



The recently released Bill isnít the brightest of people but he has a sincere desire to go straight and has a vague sort of plan for doing so. Returning home to the loving bosom of the family he left behind would be a good way to start, unfortunately the wife has gone and his children (Dean, 15 and Jimmy 11) are fending for themselves avoiding social services. Iíve not seen much of Creed-Miles so I really canít comment on past performances. In Wild Bill he is a sympathetic, likeable lead playing a role that could easily have been routine but he gives the character warmth and subtly plays a man a little lost in the years gone by but not so gone to lose his humour and eventually understand his responsibility and to appreciate what heís got.

Jared Gilman was fantastic - both he and Kara Hayward delivered Anderson's dialogue so perfectly, it's quite extraordinary. Both were wonderful - two of my favourite performances by child actors.

Dench was great. Her as M - it's just perfect casting.

Wild Bill is only a fiver at the minute on Amazon, think I might give it a go.

Matty, you're just jealous because you're too pretentious/fanboyish/trolling/not really related to Colin Farrell ish to understand Wes Anderson. Have I left anything out from the Empire forum big book of cliches? Oh yeah, you say cunt so you're sexist, now excuse me while I call a female forum member a bitch and then try to delete it.

As the second most annoying pair (after Murray/McDormand) in Moonrise - or, as I should say, the 2nd very Anderson pair in the film - I wasn't a big fan of the kids but, of the two, I thought the girl was the better and the boy too stilted, even for Anderson dialogue.

Janney was one of the plus points in Margaret, the other being the lady whose name I keep forgetting.

I didn't really like Tiny Furniture but the performance was IMO better than in Girls.

Judi Dench is awesome.

And, on behalf of my attempt to do my own 2012 list - fuck, Wild Bill was this year

True, Eustace is a horrible little git but my anger's directed at the actor more than the character. He just riles me like noything else.

Dench was great. Not seen Blackthorn but I've always liked Sam Shepard.
