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
Howl
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!
