Yes, one of those lists.
As 2011 is now behind us, I thought I’d share my favourite films of last year. Firstly, I appreciate there’s a lot NOT on this list. Some films are excluded simply because I have yet to see them (Blue Valentine, Tinker Tailor, Senna), others because I simply did not enjoy them enough to include them (The King’s Speech, True Grit, Black Swan, The Artist)!
Oh, and I’ve included my favourite bits for the top 5, just ‘cus, you know, it seemed cool or something. Anyway, enough babbling, here’s the list:
11. The Fighter
10. Super 8
8. Fast 5 (yes, really)
7. I Saw The Devil
6. Source Code
5. Kill List
Best bit: The librarian, in the kitchen, with the hammer.
Best bit: Opening getaway. Playing it nice and cool.
Best bit: Patrick Doyle’s score, all the way through.
2. Rise of The Planet of The Apes
Best bit: Caesar scrawls his own window.
Best bit: “You don’t knock him out, you don’t have a home.”
The ‘Nearly-but-not-quite List’: Attack the Block, 127 Hours, X-Men: First Class, Captain America, Bedevilled, Rubber.
I really do recommend checking out any of the films listed above. I’m sure you won’t regret it (too much).
Also, please comment below with your own recommendations, just in case I’ve missed anything glaringly obvious. Or if you think my list sucks. Ta!
