Good gawd that was a PITA...

Xur's picture

Getting the formatter to not totally fuck up that list just sucked out a good 10+ minutes of my life.  What the hell man!

 

As for the list itself, I've come to the realization that I just didn't go to the movies much this last year.  Half of these films I've never even fucking heard of, and the rest are depressing as hell (Blue Valentine, Winters Bone, 127 Hours, Toy Story 3, etc).  I only saw Social Network because it was playing on an airplane (and I missed the first half because the in-flight magazine claimed it was some other dull as shit movie, so I didn't start watching until the hot asian chick showed up onscreen), and I only saw How To Train Your Dragon because it came onto an internet movie channel I happened to have on while cleaning my living room one day.

 

I am going to a fancy-pants Oscars party though.  Instead of sitting at home and drinking by myself, I'll be surrounded by hot chicks in fancy dress, drinking by myself in a corner.  Go me!!!

Nicely done, Critico!

HS's picture

I've seen all of the above except The Kids are Alright and Winter's Bone.  Looks like I enjoyed The Kings Speech and 127 Hours more than you (I'd put them right after Inception, Social Network, and Toy Story 3).  True Grit was decent, but nothing special. 

 

HS

what did you think of Black Swan?

Critico's picture

I found the begining slow, but after the girls go out loved every moment.

I thought it was a bit overrated, Critico.

HS's picture

Portman was good, as was Vincent Cassel.  Mila Kunis was fine (and fine to look at), but it wasn't an award-worthy performance.  Barbara Hershey was horrible in the same way Renee Zellweger was horrible in "Cold Mountain."  Winona Ryder barely made an impression.

I liked some elements (the bloody toenails, the hallucinations) and disliked others (every time Barbara Hershey was on screen).  I agree, it started out slow.  It needed nudity in at least one key scene (I think you know which scene I'm talking about).

HS

SPOILERS DON'T READ IF YOU HAVEN'T SEEN BLACK SWAN

Critico's picture

No it didn't need nudity, because its a fantasy by Portman's character, who is an innocent girl and probably a virgin.
