A preliminary list. I probably saw the least amount of movies in 2011 since joining HTF, and especially lacked in the foreign films department. 2011 movies seen: 62 1. Tree of Life 2. Hugo 3. Contagion 4. The Artist 5. Drive 6. Win Win 7. Warrior 8. The Descendants 9. The Debt 10. The Adventures...
I noticed the stylistic choice of shooting closeups that Patrick and Chad mentioned too. I agree that it was disorienting, or maybe that's too strong a word, more noticeable let's say, at the beginning of the movie. At some point in the movie, I started to not notice it as much. I don't know...
Last count of 2010 films seen: 72 1. The Secret in Their Eyes 2. Toy Story 3 3. Shutter Island 4. The Social Network 5. Inception 6. The Next Three Days 7. Black Swan 8. A Prophet 9. The Kids Are All Right 10. The Town Most want to see, but haven't yet: Blue...

My list could probably only be based off of my memory and rethinking
of the movies. I have not rewatched most of these movies in the past
year. It's entirely possible, for example, that I would once again
prefer Batman Begins to The Dark Knight if I saw them back to back
now, as I did when I...

8. A Serious Man
Haven't seen yet: Broken Embraces, Bright Star, In the Loop...
I agree with Patrick's positive review, and might have liked it even more than him! The bad guys in this movie are a hoot.
Cameron, I never got that feeling while watching the movie.
I did not like Tennenbaums or Life Aquatic very much, so it's a surprise how much I enjoyed Wes Anderson's...
I have only seen Part 1 of the two Asian theatrical releases, so my comment is limited to that part. The rental DVD I got in Taiwan for part 2 was abused too much for me to finish the movie. I thought Part 1 was close to a disaster. Of course I am familiar with this material, but I don't...
Look like it's the Prelude to Act I. See the links above. The person who hosted the Birth clip thought it was from the legendary Solti and Vienna Philharmonic recording.
I quite liked this movie, and thought this scene was pretty effective. It seems like Desplat writes a waltz for every...
Dave, the father figure feels somewhat like like a misdirection, no? If this was a more conventional movie, I would say he is being set up as the "good motive, extremist, turn into bad guy" role early in the film. But it turns out he is not so extreme as to want the planet's destruction, and...
