" January 27th (Cinema) - Sitting in the theater watching The Artist I could not shake the feeling that what I was seeing on the screen was a singularly unique and original experience for me. Everything old is new again as they say. It's attention to detail from the costumes to the art direction to the shout outs to classic films it is emulating exemplify the triumphs of the silent era, but also the eventual heartaches. Right from the beginning The Artist is an infectious delight that oozes j"

"It snagged 9 other nomination, won the Golden Globe for Best Comedy or Musical, and of the nominations, it currently has the highest rating on Rotten Tomatoes, Metacritic and IMDB. Plus, it's basically a love letter to the cinema and the Oscar people will eat it up. Plus it's in black and white AND is silent. Chance of winning. 45%"

" "Mind your pride, sir. Miss Miller is a good person, believe me." Full Review Yes, the most acclaimed film of the year is #8 on my list. You'll either get over it or you won't. Again, I make my top 10 list so that it reflects my personal order of preference, rather than a dishonest order that will make me look like a "responsible cinephile" (and it's worth noting that this is the first time since 2007's No Country for Old Men that the Best Picture frontrunner has made my top 10 list"

"First viewing - Jan. 22nd Review by lotr23 And the only part of the above review I disagree with is with regard to the dialogue, which I had no problems with. Though I personally recommend you go watch The Artist before reading it unless you prefer/don't mind knowing more about a movie up front. I prefer knowing as little as possible. Highly recommended."

"An engrossing homage to an early film era. It's irresistibly cute and visually appealing, but it also isn't afraid to explore complicated themes and to draw interesting parallelisms with modern times. Full review: http://www.listal.com/viewentry/1918217 "

The Artist

“You'd be forgiven for thinking that all the advertisements for The Artist make it look exclusively like a throwback. That, of course, would be a turn-off for someone who's never seen a silent black-and-white movie or for someone who's prejudiced against films like that because they expect the experience will be monotonous. Thankfully, this cinematic offering doesn't limit itself to just reproducing something similar to what you would've seen in a 1929 film. Despite the era in which it's set, it makes its share of subtle references and notes on life in the 21st century, both inside and outside movie theaters. That it does it with so much style, with a wallop of entertainment, and with two characters with whom we can easily fall in love makes The Artist a joyous, absorbing experience at ” read more

" Trailer for The Artist Looks to me to be a fantastic companion piece with Hugo. The sheer audacity of making a B & W silent film with a pair of unknown (at least in the U.S.) leads is enough to get any cinephile's attention. The fact that this appears to be a sheer delight and sits atop many critics Best of 2011 lists only bolsters my anticipation. "

“Jean Dujardin gives a absolutely masterful performance as George Valentin, a silent movie star unwilling to adapt to the "talkies". He *is* the character, it was impossible to pick even a single false moment in his performance. Overall, the movie feels like an exercise in proving that a silent movie can be made in the 21st century and it can be fairly entertaining. The focus is firmly on the character of Valentin rather than on the story, which while entertaining is fairly run of the mill.” read more

January Movie Journal - Xanadon't (35 movies items)

" In all likelihood, The Artist will be accepting an Oscar for Best Picture in just a few weeks. So, is it in fact the "best" film of 2011? Well no, it's not. Not by any measure I can think of, except for perhaps in terms of ambitious novelty. But it wouldn't be a terribly offensive choice for Best Picture either, I suppose. It's most certainly a crowd-pleaser (and in my experience at the theater it's a movie that makes audiences pleased with themselves as much or more than with the actual film)"

My 2011 Favorites - by Xanadon't (44 movies items)

"If the entire film was as interesting, dynamic, and purely delightful as its first 20 minutes this really would be every bit as deserving as its Best Picture frontrunner status would indicate. Unfortunately the film gets bogged down a bit by an almost painfully straight-forward approach that hits us over the head with repetition of theme and idea. It rights itself by the end and once again approaches something truly special, though in truth this is an extremely fluffy affair throughout, albeit a"

“Go See "The Artist"

Having dabbled in the 1920s with "Midnight In Paris", this movie will emerse you in this classic decade. The cars, the clothes, the hair... Director Michel Hazanavicius doesn't miss a single beat. Even the extras - every pedestrian and stagehand - has the classic familiarity of your grandparents' yearbook. Even the top name character actors filling in the cast as featured extras (Malcolm McDowell, Beth Grant, Ed Lauter). Stars Jean Dujardin (looking more, at times, like Gene Kelly) and Bérénice Bejo fit perfectly into this era. All in all, it’s like a lost reel straight from 1927.

I grew up going to the local Silent Film Festival every spring, so my hopes were high for "The Artist"; I can tell you, I was not disappointed. It wasn't a stylized hom” read more
