1. Sherlock Holmes - 5
2. Up in the Air - 9
3. Inglorious Basterds - 9
4. The U - 5
5. Tenacious D in The Pick of Destiny - 4
6. Julie & Julia - 7.5
7. The Informant! - 6
8. Youth in Revolt - 6.5
9. The Business of Being Born - 4
10. Food, Inc. - 9
11. Taking Woodstock - 7.5
12. Terminator Salvation - 4.5
13. Moon - 9
14. Winning Time: Reggie Miller vs. The New York Knicks - 8
15. Diary of a Wimpy Kid - 5

16. How to Train your Dragon (in 3D!!!!) - 7

The 3D was really good during the flying scenes.  Otherwise, I guess at this point I am too used to it from other movies for it to make much of an impact.  It just sort of blended in.  Plus the $14 difference in total ticket cost means that next time a 3D movie comes out I will probably look for it in non-3D just to save money.  The story was cute.  The idea that Vikings had Scottish, British, and Canadian accents was also somewhat entertaining.

17. The Hurt Locker - 8

I guess I missed some nuance here that propelled this from a good solid war movie into "best picture" territory.  Great performance from Jeremy Renner, but the story got a little choppy towards the end, sorta like "hey this puppy's over 2 hours, let's wrap it up!"

18. Gigantic - 4

I was waiting for the big heart of this movie to be revealed, but it never got there for me.  Just a bunch of mopey people moping around, being humorless, spouting non-sequiturs, and living the kind of lives that sound kitschy fun on paper, but in practice are near torturous to watch.  A mattress salesman who wants to adopt a Chinese baby?  The aging dad who brews 'shroom tea?  This is the sort of movie that people who only THINK they are clever write, but really it's just a bit too pointless and labored to like.

Thanks for that.  I think we'll see it in 2D.

Have your boys ever read any of the The Heroic Misadventures of Hiccup the Viking?  They're hillarious books.

Wow! I _really_ wish I had caught this at the cinema now. The early sixties in Britain perfectly staged in a damning tale about an impressionable teenage girl. Every performance is magnificently nuanced, none moreso than Carey Mulligan who is just awesome in the lead role and was most definitely ROBBED by Sandra Bullock for the Oscar. I can't believe that she had not had one single acting lesson before being chosen for this movie. I could watch this over and over and over again. Once more.... WOW!

8. Extract

11. An Inconvienent Truth
12. Hotel Rwanda
13. Moon - It took a little while for the movie to get going but once the main plot line was introduced, it kept my interest all the way through. I understand the first part was meant to highlight the isolation of working alone on the dark side of the moon, but it was a bit heavy-handed. But considering this was the first movie for Jones, I can forgive that pretty easily. The main plot line I guess is sort of a surprise so I won't mention it specifically here, but it is sort of similar to Blade Runner. Definitely a good Sci-Fi movie that is more than just a shoot 'em up with aliens. The robot companion also now makes me crack up whenever I see smiley faces and frowny faces when reading instructions.

Gritty and heartbreaking story. Loathe to say depressing, more enlightening.
43 Le Mans
I think it's fair to say that all the actors involved in this 70's classic are pretty much superfluous to the documentary-style coverage of the French endurance race. However, I'm sure having McQueen's name on the hoardings did it no harm in terms of getting bums on seats at the cinema

Spooky, but not in the way Funny Games was.  Haneke's stuff can be pretty out there, as far as the psychological torture realm goes, but The White Ribbon is a little more reserved.  You'll probably like it.
