Argo
Good thriller, pretty damn suspenseful. Ben Affleck has definitely cemented his reputation is a good director, if not a particularly unique one. Bryan Cranston was great in this, it's awesome to see him play a different but equally intense role as he does when he's being Walter White. 8/10

Definitely want to check this out. I liked the Town also. And his first, I killed my dead lesbian wife, what a great name.

Skyfall... well its not classic James Bond but still good. Not the usual flashy Mr. Bond with girls and gadgets... its more of an introspective Bond who is still soul searching.

I'm used to seeing him with white hair and a long beard.
Ahh how I love this movie It is directly linked to the electric folk movement in Britain when bands like Fairport Convention, The Incredible String Band, Pentangle and numerous others revived a romantic interest in all things Albion. To me, there's not a dull moment in this film, but I also love the soundtrack for this one and will happily sing along to some of the songs.

However, you have to be careful with whatever version you watch of this one because if you watch the theatre version (which is something like 11 minutes shorter than the director's cut version), the movie no longer makes sense at all. How I hate it when they do that to movies. The version you want to see is of course the ~100 minutes long Director's Cut version.

Unfortunately, the raw footage from this movie was lost in a fire so we'll never see a rerelease .. what a tragedy!

Yawn. Guy Pearce was awesome but Maggie Grace is one damp squib and the story never reached all out action that it promised.

This is not really a gangster film at all, in fact it is more in the Shane Meadows vein of film making. Very engaging, well played and poignant in parts. A great little gem.

Biutiful (2010)

This movie was soul-crushing. Beautiful, touching, and just heart wrenching. Bardem was amazing and the little boy who played his son was completely adorable, which made everything that happened in the movie that much more emotional. You really feel for Uxbal (Bardem) as he deals with his illness while one traumatic thing after another piles up on top of him. His disappointment when he realizes his wife will never be the mother he needs her to be, while he's struggling with his own mortality. The moment his daughter finds out he's sick. The two points in the movie pretty much destroyed me. If you need a good cry, I highly recommend it. And even if you don't, the way the story unfolds and Bardem's acting will still make it worth your while.

I loved that too, I thought it was unjustly criticized when it came out. Bardem is great.

I've been waiting to re-watch it for about a year, maybe this is the motivation I needed.

Have you seen The Sea Inside? Bardem is incredible in this too.
