Everyone, United 93! :D

Emma said...

Yes, it is.

Interesting list- I agree with you about Eva Green who has a nice level of haughtiness. I think Emily Blunt did well in the Devil wears Prada- though Streep's performance was just amazing, you could tell that both her and Nicolson in the Departed were just enjoying their parts- both performances represented the triumph of the old Pro. Good lists- you make me want to see the odd film that I haven't- Perfume particularly.

By the way what's History Boys like? I have read the play script and I saw the original play but did the film come up to those standards.

Emma said...

Perfume is incredible, very different from practically every film I've seen this year.

I lurve The History Boys! Funny, interesting, clever, and with some cute boys. :0)

Have you seen Notes on a Scandal? Both Dench and Blanchett gave excellent performances.

Any list that doesn't include Dench and Blanchett's performances shouldn't be taken seriously.

You are almost dramatically less awesome. United 93 is incredible. And Eva Green is good but Daniel Craig sucks? Hm. I thought they were both great, but... I'm a stupid American teen. And was High School Musical released in theatres? I'm not defending it, but it's a TV movie. I'll stop insulting your honour.

Any list that doesn't have "Children Of Men" at least nominated for cinematography does not deserve to be taken seriously.

Probably the most groundbreaking cinematography of the past 10 years
