Best of the Year Tally


The following is a tally of the average votes garnered for each title we kicked around as candidates for the best of the year. In an effort to rank these choices in a semi-apples-to-apples way, I've divided the list into 3 sections i) Art House Fare, ii) Documentaries and iii) Entertainment. I recognize that some films straddle the Art/Entertainment divide but wanted to somehow deliniate the Scott Pilgrims from the Revanches. Some titles skew up or down with only 1 or 2 ratings, but generally the ranking seems modestly valid in my view.

We have reviews on some, but not others. Does anyone care to pick a couple to do?

Thoughts on the above in the comments section if you'd be so kind.

Totally agree with the ratings for once, my top 'uns...

Winter's bone
A Prophet
Red Riding: Trilogy

Seems a better year this year?

I'd happily do a review for Revanche if no-one else wants to and one for Until The Light Takes Us is on the way.

Wild Hunt
Ip Man
Baseball: The Tenth Inning
Fubar 2
House of the Devil

By the by, Greenberg is spelled with an 'e' not a 'u'. Come on guys, if you need help with these things please feel free to ask the Jew.

You're about as Jewish as Muammar al-Gaddafi Kendall.

I'd like to direct you to my profile photo. Not a Jew? Pffft.
