It’s the start of 2012, so I thought I would have my own awards ceremony. This year awards have gone to the best and worst actors, films etc. After going through my movie archive I have found many worthy winners for That Movie Guy Film Awards 2012……
Film of the Year
By far the best film this year, not a lot of awards for this film by many associations or academies. Ryan Gosling has now come to the mantel as one of the best actors of his generation in Drive. This film is like something that you have never seen before, it’s stylish, retro, bloody and a classic. Forget about your Tree of Life, Ides of March and Warhorse this was truly the film event of 2011.
David Fincher never lets his fans down, at the very end of the year The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo graced the big screen. He has brought his twist of the tail for the world. His dark and creative mind has made The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo into something colossal, and has now branched out to become a trilogy. I would like to see Fincher win the Oscar for Dragon Tattoo, but we will have to wait and see.
Gary Oldman had a performance of a life time in Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, he portrayed George Smilie with great passion. In every shot he is in he embodied the role and became Smilie. He was everything I imagined him to be from the books, this really is a man that has a lot of passion for his craft and truly was the best of 2011
Rooney Mara-The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo
Rooney who? she is now hot property in Hollywood. Rooney Mara gave an emotional, courageous and beautiful portrayal of Lisabeth Salander. She has transformed her self into the character, and even greater than Noomi Rapace portrayal of Salander. Every moment that she appeared in the film she blossomed a little bit more and never gave away her story. She is such a memorable character in cinema and I look forward to see what she has to bring in the future.
