Top of the month March 2010: How to Train Your Dragon

Barbecue party with Night Fury!

Why should you go see How to Train Your Dragon by DreamWorks, right now?

– Because everything we know about dragons is wrong.
– Because you will want a pet dragon in your garden.
– Because if you never got into the previous DreamWorks Animation films then this one is for you, their best production so far.

Runners up :The Ghost-Writer by Roman Polanski and Crazy Heart by Scott Cooper.
(not to mention The Men Who Stare at Goats by Grant Heslov and Bad Lieutenant : Port of Call New Orleans by Werner Herzog)

Shutter Island by Martin Scorsese

Top of the month February 2010: Shutter Island

Madness…? This is Ashecliffe!

Why should you go see Shutter Island by Martin Scorsese, right now?

– Because of the sound of the double bass that follows the main characters from the fog to the gates of the detention facility.
– Because it’s not only a film noir homage but a highly elaborate graphic universe.
– Because the island of Doctor Scorsese is more than a set, a character on its own (Lost anyone?).

Runners up :Fantastic Mr. Fox by Wes Anderson and I Love You Phillip Morris by Glenn Ficarra & John Requa.
(not to mention Brothers by Jim Sheridan, Lovely Bones by Peter Jackson and Sherlock Holmes by Guy Ritchie)
