This year, I was honestly surprised. I have seen quite a few movies, and I have yet to find a movie that I have found utterly atrocious. Though there were many that were close (for example, The Roommate, dear lord), there has been a wealth of greatness in this year’s line-up. Surprisingly, the movies I saw were lined up in a greatest-of order that I predicted at the beginning of the year (so my mind actually did what I thought it would? Wow). So, without further adeiu, here’s my ballot for the year’s best in film (so far).

Movies I have not seen and shall omit from this with a simple “honorable mention”: The Tree of Life, Thor, Cedar Rapids, Battle: LA, Fast Five, Scream 4, Pirates: On Stranger Tides, Green Lantern, Paul.

>>>>Best Picture:

Nominees –
SuckerPunch
Limitless
Water For Elephants
Source Code
The Adjustment Bureau
X-Men: First Class
Super 8

Winner –
Source Code. The movie has so much hidden in it that I felt like I was watching an homage to Inception with its own little tweaking on the idea of reality. Great movie.

>>>>Best Screenplay:

Nominees –
Water For Elephants
Source Code
Super 8
X-Men: First Class
Limitless
SuckerPunch

Winner –
Source Code. Most witty and interesting script of the year.

>>>>Best Supporting Actor:

Winner –
Oscar Isaac – Blue Jones – SuckerPunch. This man was PHENOMENAL in this role. Amazing, and he needs to be acknowledged more.

>>>>Best Score, Original:

Winner –
Source Code. Dear god is all I can say about this one. Beautiful and astounding score, though it BARELY beat, in my mind, James Newton Howard’s great job on Water For Elephants.

>>>>Best Soundtrack:

Winner –
SuckerPunch. No other film had as good a soundtrack as this one. Its reinterpretations are simply amazing, and should be looked into.

>>>>Best Cinematography:

Winner –
Source Code. AMAZING damn shots, people. AMAZING.

That’s all for now, everyone. I’ll inform you all in December or January my full list. So comment if you want if you feel different. If not, then just enjoy the read, and have a good day.
