8. The Guard
Not as good as last year’s best movie, ‘The Social Network’, but still a good engrossing mystery with style.
More of an experience than anything else. This is a bold film with very few peers, only 2001: A Space Odyssey comes to mind.
A real stand-out comedy. In the spirit of the Hangover but better. And the fact that Kristin Wiig is excellent as the lead should be of no surprise to anyone who has seen her previous work.
A truly great movie. Better than any of the other 4 X-men films. Works as a prequel to the other movies but also stands on its own as a new beginning for future sequels to follow.
Like ‘The Tree of Life’, this movie is bold and different but in a different way. This film shifts tones and moods in a way that you have to just sit back and take in. It has a great soundtrack and many scenes are like a work of art in motion.
A down to earth drama with a great story. The twists and turns of the mystery driven story lead to a roller coaster of emotions and the true nature of forgiveness.
