Whatever thoughts I had has been wiped out from my mind by this THIS-
2011, as said in The Film Experience Blog, is truly the Year of the Goz. Just last week I was saying how I thought after watching Drive's trailer that Ryan Gosling has the anti-hero action movie star thing down, and now he looks perfect in a political drama scenario. He might just be the best actor out there at the moment, and this year will be historic because of his talent. And fuck! He looks so good too.
Speaking of good looks, I also love the idea of George Clooney as President. This film definitely has a very strong support cast, and I have no idea where my loyalties lie at the moment- Giamatti or Hoffman? This is gonna hurt! The trailer gave me Social Network-esque chills, and that's just not because Max "Divya" Minghella is in this too.
So this makes me ask the question...what will be the "The Social Network" film for me this year? I think the following might become the candidates-
1) Tree of Life
2) Midnight in Paris
3) A Dangerous Method
4) Ides of March
5) Tinker Taylor Soldier Spy
9) The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo
11) The Artist
13) We Bought a Zoo
14) The Descendants
I haven't seen any of these. The only films thus far that I saw and thought were actually good were Hanna and Jane Eyre. I enjoyed Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, part 2, X-Men: First Class, Captain America: The First Avenger and Bridesmaids also, but summer blockbusters and female-driven comedies don't get much love from AMPAs.
Yes...random line of thought triggered by the AMAZING Ides of March trailer and poster over. What do you think will be your __________ film of the year? And HOW amazing will the Year of the Goz be?
