I'm nowhere near ready to start recapping the year in film yet (need to churn out like twelve reviews, still have to see some big ones) but already people are starting. Craig (dark eye socket) takes a look at the year's biggest cinematic surprises. I've not seen How Do You Know (though I recall Nick, above loathed it) so I can't say yay or nay on its inclusion, but Henry's Crime is a flawed, but lovely one. And Vera Farmiga is excellent in it.
I think Lisa Kudrow should have at least gotten some precursor love for Analyse This, and Paolo (Brown Okinawa Assault Incident) takes a look back, he unfortunately doesn't focus too much on Lisa. But, then, the film has its other merits.
Most of you probably know that I don't watch movie trailers, which means that I shan't be watching The Dark Knight Rises trailer (not that I'd care to, really). More importantly, I shall not be watching the trailer for The Hobbit, though I'm very excited that it's being made...Ryan (Sorta That Guy) certainly will, though.
We Need to Talk About Kevin has been reviewed pour moi, but the film still sits uncomfortably with me - for better and for worse. Dan (Dan the Man Movie Reviews) is particularly positive about it.
Will Hanna turn up on your year-end list? It might turn up somewhere on my mind. Maybe it shall, we shall see. Meanwhile, Andrew - not me - (Andrew at the Cinema) offers up a positive look at it. I'm so anxious for Wright's Anna Karenina.
One film that will turn up on my year end list is the astonishingly good Certified Copy which Robert Hamer (The Awards' Circuit) made a year-end plea for last week. It shall not win any love from awards it seems but it's a beauty.
I do not adore Mad Men like so many of you do and I doubt that any drama shall top the phenomenal second season of Boardwalk Empire (though I'm open for shocks). Still, Marcy (The Critical Escapist) touches on one reason I'm anxious for the next season of Mad Men to return. It's about time someone, other than me, shine a light on Vincent Kartheiser who should really have been Emmy nominated over John Slattery for his work on the show.
