Here are the films that were memorable to me in no particular order:
- The Muppets
- Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part II
- The Skin I Live In (Spain)
- Attack the Block (UK)
- Snowtown (AU)
- Sherlock Holmes 2
- The Dead (overall a great addition to the zombie genre, though schlocky in parts)
- Paul (Why is this not on every single best-of list? The only DVD I bought this year.)
- Captain America
- Green Lantern
- Source Code
- Insidious (Ok, the 'reveal' was a bit daft but this stuck with me)
- Kung Fu Panda 2
- X-Men: First Class
Of course I haven't seen some of the brilliant films included on most people's lists as I had an off year. What with moving to another country and losing a majority of my income as well as sharing what movies to see with my boyfriend, I missed a lot. I'll catch up on DVD.
Many of you will wonder why I don't include Super 8. I liked it. Definitely had its moments. But it lacked the magic that a movie of its type should have.
Sadly I haven't seen quite a few of the films I feel I should have this year. I'm hoping to see some of the big ones before year's end.
Hope you had a good year at the movies. If you want to keep having the opportunity to see them on the big screen, make sure you go regularly and PAY! :)
