    The Grey took me by surprise. Left an impression that had outlasted many other films.

    Probably one of the most disappointing years in film. All the films I was highly anticipating (bar The Hobbit) missed the mark: Prometheus, Brave and The Dark Knight Rises. Still have Django Unchained and Les Miserables to go (which come out here next week, though I'll be back in Europe for the holidays).

    So far, I'd put my temporary top 5 as:

    Life of Pi
    The Avengers
    Wreck-It Ralph
    The Hobbit
    Moonrise Kingdom

    Honourable mentions:
    The Grey
    21 Jump Street
    Silver Linings Playbook

    Shit list:
    Ice Age 4
    Red Tails

    2. ParaNorman
    3. End of Watch
    4. The Possession
    5. Side By Side
    6. Dictado (Childish Games)
    7. Rentaneko (Rentacat)

    I'll probably get my dates mixed up, but here goes (in no particular order):

    Young Adult
    Moonrise Kingdom
    A Cat In Paris
    The Raid
    2 Days in New York
    Martha Marcy May Marlene

    So much to catch up on - I'm adding them all to my Amazon wishlist so that I don't forget - Tabu, The Hunt, Looper etc.

    Barely seen anything this year but it is a tie between Dredd and Seven Psychopaths.

    Not seen Amour or The Master yet either...
    Seen Amour and that is definitely in there. Potentially best film of the year...
    A few more to add:

    The Hobbit
    The Master
    Rust and Bone
    Beasts Of The Southern Wild
    Smashing it's way into my best of the year with one day to go is Life Of Pi. Great year all in all.

    Same here. I can't think of a film that did so well to portray fear and menace as well as the grey did, yet it's not a horror film.


    Can't think of anything else notable, offhand.
