My Top 10

Brief Thoughts I always wanted to get into martial-arts films more but for whatever reason nothing really struck home until I watched the amazing The Raid, maybe it's the outright violence and physical realism of the thing that makes me gravitate to it over other examples of the form.

Source Code (2011)


Brief Thoughts:One of my favourite films of the decade thus far, I really enjoyed Source Code, clearly intelligent time travelling sci-fi themed films just do it for me (See also Looper, Donne Darko, 12 Monkeys etc)

Brief Thoughts: Up to this point The Planet of the Apes franchise did absolutely nothing for me so I was surprised I liked this one so much. An intelligent and engaging Sci-fi.

Tyrannosaur (2011)


Brief Thoughts: It's a little depressing that so many British films are about council estate despair, but this one was a particularly good one. Peter Mullan is a powerhouse of an actor, up there with the best in my book.

The Help (2011)


Brief Thoughts I found it to be a very well acted, well made film (with an very relevant point that it was black women and not their parents that brought up so many wealthy white american kids) and Bryce Dallas Howard played an enormously irritating bitch.

Brief Thoughts:Certainly an interesting insight on bringing up a sociopath, although the coldness of subject matter didn't completely connect with me Iv'e been a admirer of director Lynne Ramsay since Ratcatcher and it was great to see her get her breakthrough here.

Brief Thoughts:I still haven't watched the original Swedish film all the way through (they keep putting it on TV at ridiculous times of the early morning, because subtitles are only for insomniacs) but I found Fincher's remake very enjoyable, sad that they never followed it up with the subsequent sequels.

Warrior (2011)


Brief Thoughts I enjoy the sport of MMA and I enjoyed this film, sure it's a bit simplistic and doesn't quite have the classic quality of some of the boxing films (or even The Wrestler) but none the less it's enjoyable stuff. Holy shit, is that Kurt Angle?

Hanna (2011)

The Grey (2011)


Brief Thoughts: Another film that's considered pretty average that I enjoyed. I liked the horror elements, grounded in a very real situation, casting light on how horrific nature can really be.

Super 8 (2011)


Brief Thoughts: This one kind of gets a fair share of criticism, but I enjoyed it, you could tell Abrams was having fun reliving his love of classic 80's kids movies.

Thor (2011)


Brief Thoughts: Well, I enjoyed it a hell of lot more than Captain America, as is the case with a lot of these things the bad guy steals the show. Plus good god is Kat Dennings hot but good god is Kat Dennings annoying.

Brief Thoughts: I wanted to like it more, but it was just so crude on many fronts,it was hard film to warm to. So many modern films are just extreme for the sake of being extreme , stylistically pretty impressive though.

Paul (2011)


Brief Thoughts: I was a fan of the TV show Spaced back in the day but the weird thing is the stuff that Pegg/Frost have done in film has done absolutely nothing for me. Paul was pretty fun, forgettable but fun.

War Horse (2011)


Brief Thoughts: War Horse had a lot of hype surrounding it on this side of the pond, and I have to say I found it disappointingly bland at times. Having said that it has some truly heartbreaking moments too, who can't feel for a horse? Beautiful animals. It's people that are the problem.

Drive (2011)


Brief Thoughts: Probably the most overrated film of the decade, talk about style over substance, Gosling snoozing his was through another performance (that some people confuse for coolness) and Carey Mulligan squeaking like a besotted gerbil. No it's not terrible, just deeply average, Lovely cinematography though, gotta admit...

Brief Thoughts: I can't watch one of Fox's X-movies without ranting at the screen like an irrational fan boy. "Moria McTaggart's Scottish you fuck's! Emma Frost is fucking English! Since when is Xavair such a dislikable arrogant douchebag!?" I'll rant, having grown up reading the comics. The best bits involve Magneto, the rest is just yugh! What was it with the retro 60's hipster vibe? How is that anything to do with fucking X-Men? Ugh, fuck you Fox.

Brief Thoughts: Having just missed being a kid during the whole Potter bandwagon it's never really mean't a whole lot to me, to be honest. Though I found the immediate predecessor to this one surprisingly enjoyable, this one on the other hand? sorry kids, CGI borefest.

Hugo (2011)


Brief Thoughts: Of course as an admirer of Scorsese's work I was intrigued with the idea of him making a kids film. But in all honesty it just didn't do that much for me, don't get me that wrong it was a well-made piece of work but regarding the story it simply did not intrigue me, for whatever reasons films that fetishizes the history cinema rarely do (see the Artist, also on this list).

The Eagle (2011)


Brief Thoughts: Nice to see my Pictish relations portrayed in such a glamorous light. On a serious level I actually quite enjoyed The Eagle, though its striking resemblance to 2010's Centurion made me feel as though I'd seen it before.

Brief Thoughts: Well I remember enjoying it a lot more than the withering reviews would have lead me to believe, but following a similar pattern of the year I can't recall much about it. I do remember this was one of those films with a non-ending though, so sure of its self that it would become a franchise... Ha!

Brief Thoughts: I actually started off reading Marvel comics via X-men and Ghost Rider as a kid and while I have issues with how they've adapted Marvels merry mutants what they've done to the latter is far more painful. I mean GR pissing hellfire? Seriously? Is that mean't to be amusing? Maybe to an intellectually challenged five year old. Talk about a bad fucking movie...
