I can't tell if you're being sarcastic or are actually serious. It's hard for me to believe that, personal tastes not withstanding, anybody could fail to acknowledge the masterful achievement in cinematic aesthetics that was Upstream Color.

I liked Primer. I'm not sure if that is in any way indicative of what I'll get from Upstream Color, but I may check it out before I post my list.

He's always serious.

Always serious but never to be taken seriously.

Upstream Color still blows.

Probably not. They're completely different animals. I loved both for what it's worth. I also know a few people who were blown away by Primer but left cold by Upstream Color.

You should definitely at least watch it.

I see some of you lauding Delpy's performance in Before Midnight as one of the year's best. I actually thought Hawke upstaged her in that one. Delpy was consistently good throughout the trilogy, but Hawke's progression as an actor from Sunrise to Midnight was delightful.

I agree, Hawke was my favorite part of that one, this time around.

Nebraska will be hard to top for me as far as last year is concerned. I'll admit to being a huge Alexander Payne fan beforehand though.

No love for Arnold's "you punch like a vegetarian" line from Escape Plan either. Harumph.

Also, fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuck Frozen. Working through a few dozens screenings over the winter holidays with messy-ass children & demanding soccer moms has informed that view a bit. Holy hell, the songs aren't that great either. I really miss cel-shaded Disney animation. Their new CG movies all have the same look and feel to me, almost indistinguishable from their Pixar "brand." Tangled is a hell of a lot more entertaining than Frozen, and visually memorable too.
