About J.C. Simpson

I am a high school student who is involved in film at my school in my broadcasting/video production class. Having met up-and-coming film affiliates in my area, I have come to know many great camera techniques, good writing skills and cinematographic specialties. I have taken courses and am in the process of becoming certified to use multiple different editing equipment/software engines and cameras. I am in the process of writing over 10 Screenplays and 3 Books, and look to hopefully enter into the world of cinema as a editor, scorer, cinematographer, writer and director.

  1. God damn it J.C. I still haven’t seen any of these films! But i really want to see all of them! And your list has just reminded me how out of touch i have been with films from this year! Looks like i will be spending a lot of money on dvd/blu-rays! haha

    Cool idea for a list. J.C. you always remind that I don’t have to get obsessed with every article that I write, and I can write cool and quick ideas like this. I was contemplating it, but haven’t seen the Tree of Life yet.

    Great list!

    I’d like to see more niche lists, such as best zombies movies (I think JC has a list on this, too), best comedy, best thriller, best rip-off, etc. Would be great if anyone can come up with these.

  4. J.C. Simpson says:

    I think I have one of all of those (especially the zombie one haha). But thanks guys. And Micah: The Tree of Life is amazing. Daniel: Yes, you need to see them all!

  5. Dustin Lerch says:

    I’d have to say Super 8 is my favorite film of the year so far. Tree of Life and Source Code are both right there though. Leonardo DiCaprio would have to be in there for J. Edgar as well. Nice list. I’ve seen all of them except Moneyball thus far.

  6. J.C. Simpson says:

    Yeah, I’d agree that Super 8 is winning so far for my vote for best movie of the year.
