I’m beginning to wonder. If the Academy were populated with critics, how would their eclectic taste ever overlap enough for any movie to get 5% of the vote?
(By the way, I named Detective Dee among my top 10 last year, and people averted their eyes the way they do when encountering street-corner doomsday preachers.)
1. The Artist
3. Detective Dee and the Mystery of the Phantom Flame
4. The Tree of Life
5. War Horse
6. Super 8
7. Cave of Forgotten Dreams
8. Rise of the Planet of the Apes
10. Fast Five
I love a good rationalization, so I’ll re-post the reason Richard Corliss gives for including Fast Five after the cut.
