so far this year VOLUME 9

1. Tree of Life


2. Submarine

he's done it again.

3. Midnight in Paris

so good to see wilson back in the swing of things. best adrien brody performance in a while.

4. Hanna

2/3rds great

5. Kaboom

i enjoyed it even though it didn't amount to a whole lot, seemingly.. might give it a second chance later.

NOT QUITE:

1. Incendies

lacked the poetry of Polytechnique, didn't quite justify the long takes, needed another cut/draft

2. Source Code

across the board shitty performances, writing and execution distract from a premise/story so good, it still made everything kind of entertaining. i've nearly lost hope in gyllenhaal.

3. Limitless

de niro needs to stop trying so hard to get a job at dreamworks.
again, not much outside of a cool idea, but does the job. abbie cornish's genius solution to throwing off a stalker will make you smile and wonder why you've never seen such a tactic used in the movies until now.

NEED TO SEE (in order of need/expectations):

bridesmaids
beginners
uncle boonmee
cave of forgotten dreams
attack the block
meek's cutoff
super 8
x-men
win win

There's still a lot of the year to go. The first half has been littered with played out fanboy comic book movies and crappy comedies. Second half still has tons of neat stuff to look forward to. http://xixax.com/index.php?topic=11393.0

I haven't watched anything this year. Anyone else have a lot of catching up to do?

Seen virtually nothing. I think I've seen maybe 4 proper releases in the cinema and have half-assed catch up on DVD. Still hoping to see Hugo and Tintin in 3D before they disappear, but it's likely to be a few months before I actually catch on most of what I want to see. Looking forward to be reminded of some missed gems when everyone else posts their best lists.

And guess what my new year's resolution is?
