December 2011 – I Agree It’s Not My Best Disguise.

Back from my refresher trip to London and with only a few working days separating myself from the new year, I returned in earnest to the cinema for another, final month of movies in 2011.

I kick-started the year with My Week With Marilyn, a film which proved slight but sweet, before moving on to more lowbrow fare such as The Thing, Puss in Boots, Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows, New Year’s EveHugo in 3D, Romantics AnonymousThe Girl With The Dragon Tattoo and Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol. While each of these latter films served a purpose and entertained throughout their running time, it was only Hugo which made an impression.

It being December, I suddenly found myself evaluating the year as a whole as much as I was the movies of 2011 themselves. There have been some exceptional works released this year, with Super 8 topping my list of favourite movies and films such as Scream 4, Footloose and Killing Bono just missing out on a place.  2011 has also had its fair share of duds, with the latest Transformers movie, the return of Jack Sparrow and Bad Teacher each earning a place in my bad books.

December also saw the input of my second ever contributor, with an invite to a London press screening of War Horse catching me in Scotland. Montimer duly attended, and dropped me a brilliant review, one of the first to make it online after the embargo was finally lifted.

It’s been a brilliant year all around, with a wealth of opportunities seeing my attend The Edinburgh Film Festival, walking the promenade in Cannes and interviewing the director of About A Boy, The Twilight Saga: New Moon and A Better Life. My words have graced film posters, TV spots and graced a variety of new platforms, The Incredible Suit’s BlogalongaBond included. I look forward to the challenges and opportunities 2012 will no doubt bring, and who knows, I might even get paid for this before the world ends.

Thank you all for helping this blog become such an unexpected success.

Film of the month: Hugo in 3D
