Favourite Films Of 2012

This is the first part of my review of the year, my favourite films of the past year.

10. The Woman In Black


Sort of scary and Daniel Radcliffe even actually rather good.

9. Moneyball


Not as good as they say but still not bad. Mr Pitt on song again.

8. Shadow Dancer


An intelligent, suspenseful and well-acted IRA thriller.

7. Dark Horse


I have no idea what was real and what wasn’t in this film but still loved it.

6. The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo (2011)


OMG a remake I liked. I would almost say it was better than the Swedish version but for Daniel Craig. So overall it’s still the rawer original for me, I think... maybe... I'm actually not sure.

5. Margin Call


A film about the sub-prime mortgage crisis and the collapse of the Mortgage Backed Security market... zzzzzzzzz. No seriously it's actually rather good.

4. Martha Marcy May Marlene


Another film where you're not really sure what's real and what's imagined but I do like a film that poses more questions than answers. This poses plenty.

3. Silver Linings Playbook


A film that ripped up the rom-com rule book but (sadly) still managed a happy ending, as two damaged souls heal each other through dancing... sounds dreadful doesn’t it.

2. Headhunters


A film that is full of surprises and at times leads you a right merry dance. You think one thing but then you think something else. It also turned me into an instant Jo Nesbø fan. Beware Hollywood remakes... because there’s no way on earth Hollywood could better this.

1. Shame


Perhaps an odd choice as my number one as it was perhaps a little disappointing at the time but we were still talking about it days later, so here it is - an orgasm addicted Michael Fassbender, a naked Carey Mulligan and no connection between the two, it's my number one.
