2011 Most Antipipated Films

I'm sure this list will change

1. The Ward
Come on, it's John Carpenter, so what if the reviews haven't been great, he's my favorite film maker so i'm pumped to see a new film by him!

2. Red State
Kevin Smith doing horror!

3. Harold & Kumar 3
I love this series, and hope that it turns out well!

4. Tree of Life
Malick's latest looks like it might be his best, i'm excited.

5. The Thing prequel
I love Carpenter plus Winstead is in it!

6. Burke & Harre
Landis back to doing horror comedies...what more do you want?

7. Hugo Cabret
Scorsese

8. Cedar Rapids
Looks pretty fucking funny.

9. Wanderlust
Wain is amazing!

10. Your Highness
I love Green's films, i love McBride, i LOVE Portman & i love Zooey & Franco. Plus the story looks badass & hilarious!

11. Paul
Pegg & Frost doing a script without Wright...that's not right....oh hey Mottola is directing, and you got Bateman, Weaver, Wigg & Rogen? Sign me up!

12. Harry Potter
THe first half was brilliant, the second half is it sticks to the book will rock the world!

13. Thor
Best Marvel trailer ever, could it be their best film? We'll see!

14. The Green Lantern
Lantern is my third favorite superhero behind Ghost Rider & Batman, and we know how those films turned out, so will this be a Ghost Rider, or a Batman.....i think neither, but i'm sure it'll be fun.

15. Sucker Punch
Snyder seems to have found his calling in far out fantasy/superhero flicks, the concept is awesome and the cast.....is hot!

16. Chillerama
Adam Green? Joe Lynch? Tim Sullivan? Adam Rifkin? Awesome!

17. A Horrible Way to Die
Looks great, plus AJ Bowen is the shit!

18. Limitless
a film about drugs that enhance your mind? I'm in!

19. The Hangover 2
I just want to go in and see a juvenile, devil may care, fucked up comedy.

20. Cowboys & Aliens
Title says it all.

21. Captain America
I'm hoping for more of a war story...but we'll see.

22. The Green Hornet
I for one think the trailer looks good.

23. X Men
I like the casting & i really dig Vaughn directing but i'm weary of the film.

24. Take Me Home Tonight
Looks like a fun coemdy

25. Restless
Van Sant's latest looks pretty damn good!

Best Film of 2010

I already did my favorites, now it's time for the best

1. Black Swan
it deserves to win almost every award, but it's funny as it doesn't feel awardsy, it feel like an early DePalma film, it feel like an Argento film, but it's shot, scored, directed, acted & written so brilliantly!

2. 127 Hours
Boyles second best, brilliant film, and it shows what you can do with a small cast, or shall we say, one actor on screen for 90% of the film.

3. Enter The Void
Pretentious yes, but so what, it's a brilliant concept and brilliantly made!

4. True Grit
The Coen's do it again, 4 years in a row, they've done great films, and in my opinion, this is their third best, and my third favorite they've made!

5. The Social Network
Fincher doing a drama....and excellently, Andrew Garfield is terrific!

6. Inception
BRILLIANT, fucking brilliant, blockbuster, rarely does a blockbuster get such acclaim, and it deserves it!

7. The Killer Inside me
Much like Black Swan, it doesn't feel awardsy, well neither does Enter The Void, but damnit, Void is brilliant. Anyhow, The Killer Inside Me feels like an exploitation film, but features a powerful performance by Casey Affleck!

8. The Town
Speaking of Affleck, his brother did some good acting, and great directing in this film!

9. The Girl with The Dragon Tattoo/The Girl who Played with Fire
I need to see the third before i make up my mind completely!

10.The Fighter
A near Scorsese esque film!

My Favorite Films of 2010


1.Scott Pilgrim
Possibly my favorite comic book film ever, based off my favorite comic series of all time, it's pure geekdom!

2. Kick Ass
A bloody, swear filled comic book flick, and featuring my second favorite Nic Cage performance outside of Bad Lieutenant.

3. Inception
A brilliant summer blockbuster, just what we truly need. Where as most are CGI filled and becoming 3d, Inception used alot of in camera effects(granted still using CGI in the film) and was truly original, take that Avatar.

4. Black Swan
Best film i've seen in years. It's a psychological acid trip, an erotic melodrama, trashy Italian cinema, beautifully shot, beautifully scored, brilliantly directed & written, has great performances, i need to see it a third time! I also have to say the top 3 are three of my all time favorite theatre going experiences of all time!

5. Enter the Void
Another psychological trip, only different then Swan, a tad pretentious, but fucking brilliant, it's truly a journey of a film.

6. Shutter Island
Both of Leo's two films this year were by master filmmalers, and both in my opinion were very Kubrick esque. Shutter Island is a brilliant mind fuck.

7. Tron Legacy
This is how one should use CGI & 3D.

8. Hot Tub Time Machine
Sure the film's a little choppy here & there but i thought it was hilarious.

9. 127 Hours
Boyle does it again, the master of switching genres, and his second best film, seeing the nerves being pulled even made my squint my eyes.

10. Harry Brown
A brilliant & disturbing piece of cinema that shows how dangerous humans can truly be. Fucking intense.
