MrJeffery said...

this is great! i have a lot to still check out before the year is over. as you know, 'please give' was a surprising favorite for me.

Cinema Du Meep said...

Thanks Mr. Jeffery. I have a few more to go, but I think I caught up more than usual by this time of the year.

I'm still looking forward to seeing:

The King's Speech
True Grit
The Fighter
Blue Valentine
Another Year
Exit Through The Gift Shop
The Art Of The Steal
Enter The Void
Animal Kingdom
Burlesque (morbid curiosity?)
And I have to sit down and actually watch Toy Story 3 as having it on when kids are around is not the same thing!

TheGirlWhoLovesHorror said...

Damn man, did you do anything else this year besides watch movies? That's a pretty impressive list.

Tom said...

How the hell did you watch all those movies and not see Toy Story 3?!

Direct to Video Connoisseur said...

I haven't seen a lot of these movies yet (I'm in the process of compiling my 2009 list right now), but the surprise was that you gave Black Swan 2 and 1/2 stars, because everyone has been saying how great that one was.

Cinema Du Meep said...

TheGirl-- I know, right?! I even managed to get married, honeymoon... Been a busy year!

Tom-- I tried, but was distracted. Will try again soon!

DTV Con-- I know, I thought I would have liked it more. Especially since I thought The Wrestler was the best movie of it's year (2008) Maybe it was the hype on this one that killed it for me... It's basically a horror movie about ballet with way too many overt symbolisms and obvious metaphors... I got kind of bored with it.

Dan said...

Blimey - did you get time to sleep?

Cinema Du Meep said...

It wouldn't have mattered... I dream movies.

Cinema Du Meep said...

Update: The Fighter makes the top 10!

Cinema Du Meep said...

Update: As does The Social Network after it's second viewing!
