Thanks Bracket that's great.

I liked two that he has on his top ten list and they are:

5. THE READER
I know, it was released in 2008, but my lists go from December to December, and it would be criminal to leave out this wrenching exploration of guilt and atonement. Kate Winslet's Hanna Schmitz was the best performance I saw all year.

I must agree with him, she was great in this movie.Icontexto-emoticons-01-032x032

2. THE LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT
Easily the most brilliant remake of the decade, and not just because the 1972 original was such a crapfest. This beautifully photographed — but hard to watch — movie is the standard by which all horror/suspense films should be judged: The acting is superior (Breaking Bad's Aaron Paul is especially fine), the story makes sense, and, most importantly, Last House's moral compass points to true north. We don't want these creeps back for six or eight sequels; they are monsters, and we want them dead. This film is on par with The Silence of the Lambs.


Good movie as well, but i agree with him, quite hard to watch but the ending was worth the wait. Icontexto-emoticons-10-032x032

I was surprized to see District 9 on this list. I honestly thought I was likely the only person that really enjoyed this film.

Actually, most people liked that film. It has been nominated for and won multiple awards.
