Hey Guys,

Really enjoyed the show even If I perhaps didn’t agree with you guys as much as I did last year! Most notable disagreement from me is Beasts Of The Southern Wild, which I just couldn’t get into, and The Impossible, which I found a bore to watch after the dramatic opening scenes. Seeing the story from each family member’s point of view, killed the last hour of any drama for me, as It just felt a matter of when, not if, the family would be reunited, and it seemed to take an age to get to what felt such an inevitable conclusion.

Other than those quibbles, I agreed with the majority, Kid With a Bike was near my list last year and I’m glad to see it getting so much love on this podcast. I was also a big fan of Argo, The Sessions and Moonrise Kingdom, which featured prominently and have to echo Tassoula, that Michael really should see Perks Of Being a Wallflower. I loved that movie.

Not sure If I missed something, but I did find it strange after listening to the Silver Linings podcast where Michael seemed to just rip it apart, that it then appeared in his honourable mentions (I think I even remember him calling it a 4/10!). Colour me confused.

Anyway, great show, this is absolutely now my favourite movie podcast out there. Here’s my Top 10 for what it’s worth!

1. Looper (Not a common choice, but about the most fun I had at the cinema last year)
2. Perks Of Being A Wallflower
3. Safety Not Guaranteed
4. The Avengers
5. Wild Bill
6. Argo
7. Your Sister’s Sister
8. Silver Linings Playbook
9. Robot & Frank (Michael had some valid critism, and it has it’s weaknesses, but I just really enjoyed every scene with the two leads together so much. If you can count a Robot as a lead)
10. Moonrise Kingdom

Honourable mentions for me include The Sessions, The Loneliest Planet (which is one of those subtle relationship films which would make for a great boy/girl podcast J) Seeking A Friend For The End Of The World, and Rust and Bone (which had it’s share of problems, but still continues to resonate with me.)

Thanks!

Benno
