Time for the penultimate vote of the year. Which was your favourite film?
There’s a Morgan Freeman film :!:
Though I’ll accept if you vote for the Clint Eastwood film instead
I voted for the Lovely Bones- god that made me cry
What? But The Lovely Bones was way too long and linear! Though the acting was amazing, admittedly.
For me it’s a toss-up between Invictus, which is kinda my film of the year, and The Princess and the Frog which was simply amazing.
I agree with Pierre about the Lovely Bones, I got bored and I was projecting so could ignore bits, it was far too long. I did think that the murderer was good though.
I’ll third that. Good acting and directing but just too long for the amount of story in it. It’s a shame really as I think it could have made a really good 80-90 min film.
(Worryingly its still the shortest film Peter Jackson has directed in over a decade :shock).
I was gonna say - what else do you expect from a Peter Jackson film?!
Invictus got there in the end - an 80th birthday present from Filmsoc to Clint Eastwood.
And Morgie is 73 today. Two true vets of cinema!
