that is a DAMN good list, and I love that the artist just barely makes it on the list at 20. time to fill in the gaps and catch up on stuff like A Separation.

I never agree with the rankings in these threads but I'm still aiight with most of the films in the top 20.

Really wish Attack the Block made it in though. My second favorite film of the year.

I happened to catch the Warrior completely by accident at a buddy's one afternoon. For what was obviously just a smaller film, it worked out half-decent. I take not a shred of interest in the MMA, but the movie managed to divorce itself enough from the spectacle of it (except towards the conclusion, obviously) that it allowed some small amount of breathing room for the actors to play who they were outside the ring. Probably not a movie I'd see a second time, but I recommend watching it once.

I'm happy for #1 & #2. At least both of those movies are better than last years winner *shrugs*

Still need to see 50/50, Midnight in paris, Hugo, Shame, The Artist, Melacncholia, Take shelter, MI GP and Tintin. They should all hopefully be getting blu-ray releases within the next two months here!

The violence is well done in the movie, but I think people who enjoyed it got a lot more out of the experience than just the violence.
Pretty much

Had I not known it was violent from reading up on it here I wouldn't have expected it at all when it came and I was already loving it up to that point.

When someone says why they hated it they usually say something about them not talking hardly at all and just smiling. Those reasons are part of why I liked it so much.

I forgot a bunch of movies I liked when I was voting, like Tintin, Another Year and 13 Assassins. D'oh
The Skin I Live In is great. If anything, it deserves to be higher on that list.
Yeah, I loved it. I wasn't expecting to after the last few Almodovar films, but to my surprise he's back to being interesting.

Attack the Block is good, but I'm not surprised it isn't in the 20.

no a lot of people saw it. a lot. had a big ad campaign and was in theaters for a while. in fact, it had a bigger BO gross than Drive, Tree of Life, A Separation, and Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy combined.

I went into it thinking it was going to be more of an artsy heist film with a romantic subplot. I watched it with my parents who knew nothing about it and they thought it was going to turn into a Nascar film when they bought the race car. We were all surprised to say the least, and all three of us really enjoyed it.

I think it is a pretty great top 20. I only saw ten of the movies, and plan to see 8 of the remaining ten. Tree of Life and Melancholia are the only two I am avoiding because I dislike the directors previous works but I will probably end up checking them out.
