Greetings, Glancers! We continue my new series of posts which will detail my favourite films of every year since 1950. Why 1950? Why 10? Why anything? Check out my original post here. As with most of these lists the numbering doesn’t really matter much, though in most cases the Number 1 will be my clear favourite. As I know there are plenty of Stats Nerds out there, I’ll add in some bonus crap at the bottom but the main purpose of these posts is to keep things short. So!
2007 is a year which people frequently mention as one of the best ever, with critics and audience favourites being highly popular and significant. Naturally, I say balls to that, with none of the Best Picture Nominees or top ten grossing films appearing in my personal top ten. It was a great year alright, just not for the reasons you think.
So close, so sorry: 300. No Country For Old Men. Eastern Promises. Inside. Superbad.
