Midnight in Paris (2011)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.7/10 X  
While on a trip to Paris with his fiancée's family, a nostalgic screenwriter finds himself mysteriously going back to the 1920s everyday at midnight. (94 mins.)
Director: Woody Allen
“ Watched for the 1st time on the 17th of December 2011.

A very lovely film with a beautiful cinematography by Darius Khondji. Owen Wilson is brilliant as an author looking for inspiration in Paris. Woody Allen's best film for years (not forgetting the wonderful "Match Point").

Rating: 9/10. ” - ArcadeDoinel
 
2.
Doctor Zhivago (1965)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.0/10 X  
The life of a Russian physician and poet who, although married to another, falls in love with a political activist's wife and experiences hardship during the First World War and then the October Revolution. (197 mins.)
Director: David Lean
“ Watched for the 1st time on the 17th of December 2011 (1st time means in this case, the "1st time" I watched it consciously).

The film is really the definition of "epic". Several romantic relations settled in the disturbing times of the Soviet Revolution create a heart-breaking drama that can be named alongside films like "Casablanca" or "Gone with the wind".
The cast is superb (especially Sir Alec Guinness and Julie Christie) and well-directed by the great David Lean.

Rating: 9/10. ” - ArcadeDoinel
 
3.
Goldfinger (1964)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.8/10 X  
Investigating a gold magnate's smuggling, James Bond uncovers a plot to contaminate the Fort Knox gold reserve. (110 mins.)
Director: Guy Hamilton
“ Rewatched on the 20th of December 2011 (already had watched the film for several times before).

Some call it the "classic Bond film" - and they are right. (Though I personally prefer "The Spy who Loved me"). The film unifies awesome action scenes, suspense, perfect acting (Gert Fröbe as Goldfinger owns the screen) and John Barry's near-perfect score.
Connery's finest moment in his 007 career.

Rating: 9/10. ” - ArcadeDoinel
 
4.

    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.7/10 X

    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.1/10 X  
John McClane attempts to avert disaster as rogue military operatives seize control of Dulles International Airport in Washington, D.C. (124 mins.)
Director: Renny Harlin
“ Watched for the 1st time on the 22nd of December 2011.

I already knew "Die Hard", "Die Hard with a Vengeance" and "Live Free or Die Hard" before, so the 2nd part of the Tetralogy was the only one I had missed. - After having seen it, I got to say that it's the worst part of the series. Part II wasn't that entertaining at all and the villain's performance isn't in the league of Alan Rickman in Part I (!!!) or Jeremy Irons in Part III.
Sorry for repeating: the worst part of the series.

Rating: 6/10. ” - ArcadeDoinel

Year One (2009)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 4.9/10 X  
After being banished from their tribe, two hunter-gatherers encounter Biblical characters and eventually wind up in the city of Sodom. (97 mins.)
Director: Harold Ramis
“ Watched for the 1st time on the 23rd of December 2011.

Really a bad film. You could call it a pseudo-"Monty Python's "Life of Brian"", but that would be an affront for the latter.
The best thing about the film is the young talented Michael Cera, who plays pretty much the same character as in all of his films. Juno Temple, who plays Cera's love interest in the film, shows a little bit of her talent. She should take better roles in the future though...
Jack Black? I don't know, but he lost his appeal some years ago. He was awesome in "High Fidelity" or "School of Rock", but then...WTF?
Concerning the film itself: some rare funny scenes, loads of bad taste.

Rating: 4/10. ” - ArcadeDoinel

That Touch of Mink (1962)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.7/10 X  
A rich businessman and a young woman are attracted to each other, but he only wants an affair while she wants to save her virginity for marriage. (99 mins.)
Director: Delbert Mann
“ Watched for the 1st time on the 24th of December 2011.

A nice romantic comedy with the Golden Age-Hollywood-stars Doris Day and Cary Grant (in his very late days).
The film's dialogues are very funny and entertaining (a "clichée role" for both leads), but it shows nothing, we haven't seen before. The plot is only average and well-known through other films of the genre.
All in all an average film that benefits from its good leading actors.

Rating: 6/10. ” - ArcadeDoinel

Scream 2 (1997)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.1/10 X  
Two years after the first series of murders, a new psychopath dons the Ghostface costume and a new string of killings begins. (120 mins.)
Director: Wes Craven
“ Watched for the 1st time on the 24th of December 2011.

I love the first part of the Scream-series (rated it 9/10) and watched it for several times.
The second one shows a lot of "Zeitgeist", maybe more than the first one. It shows the youth of the late 90's in all its weird manners and lust for sensation. The psycho-killer(s) are part of the pre-Internet-society.
The Scream-series defined at first hand the horror-genre of the late 90's and early 00's, so its relevance for the film is undisputed.
I personally would say, that it also had a huge impact on the teen-/college-films revival (e.g. "American Pie" or "Road Trip".)
But: The second part itself misses some of the intensity of the first part. The plot is way too known. (I knew after several minutes that Randy is the killer. (The "revival" of Billy Loomis's mum was a huge surprise though)).
All in all: A very nice film, but not as great as the first one.

Rating: 6,5/10 (couldn't decide whether 6 or 7, gonna rewatch it.) ” - ArcadeDoinel
 
9.
The 400 Blows (1959)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.1/10 X  
Moving story of a young boy who, left without attention, delves into a life of petty crime. (99 mins.)
“ Rewatched for the 2nd time on the 25th of December 2011.

An absolute masterpiece.
Truffaut is the master of sensibility and he shows his talent in filming disturbed and lost children.
Jean-Pierre Léaud's talent is undisputable, the soundtrack by Georges Delerue absolutely beautiful and Henri Decäe's realistic cinematography revolutionized the way of filming, as Truffaut himself revolutionized the role of the director ("auteur").
A groundbreaking movie with the most beautiful ending scene in film history:
Léaud runs to the beach, steps into the sea, turns is head into the camera: "FIN".

Rating: 10/10. ” - ArcadeDoinel

Revolutionary Road (2008)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.3/10 X  
A young couple living in a Connecticut suburb during the mid-1950s struggle to come to terms with their personal problems while trying to raise their two children. (119 mins.)
Director: Sam Mendes
“ Watched for the 1st time on the 25th of December 2011.

The film got 3 Oscar Nods. Not enough in my opinion. DiCaprio deserved one too, maybe he should have won too, because he delivers his best performance here (along with Gilbert Grape and The Aviator).
Kate Winslet and Kathy Bates do their usual business, but one steals the show:
It's Michael Shannon. He delivers a performance that is just breathtaking. Bad for him that he was nominated for the Supporting actor-Oscar in the wrong year, (It was the year of Heath Ledger's Joker) because he deserved one for this role.
In total, the film received only 3 nods from the Academy, which is not enough in my opinion. DiCaprio was overseen by the Academy, what you can already call a "tradition" after the years of not receiving acclaim by the Academy.
I'd call "Revolutionary Road" one of the best films of the late 00s.

Rating: 8/10. ” - ArcadeDoinel
 
11.
Antoine and Colette (1962 Short Film)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.7/10 X  
This short film is the first segment of five in the multinational feature Love at Twenty, all five segments on the theme of first adult love... (32 mins.)
“ Watched for the 1st time on the 26th of December 2011.

A very nice and lovely short film, that gives us more knowledge about the way Antoine Doinel threats in romantic things.
It's well known that Antoine Doinel is an "alter ego" of director Francois Truffaut, what makes it again way more interesting to watch the film.

Rating: 8/10. ” - ArcadeDoinel
