The Top Shots of 2011
Posted 14 February 2012 - 01:48 PM
Saw this at the end of my lunch break and haven't had much time to digest it, but I thought it might generate some discussion here. I'm trying to think of my favorite shots of 2011, and am not sure what I'd single out. Definitely #10 on Tapley's list, which is actually my #1, unless I can come up with some others. A close #2 is the kiss in the elevator in Drive -- a sequence Tapley highlights, although he prefers a different image/shot.

This film has also my favorite credit sequence. Probably from the past few years.

My sense is that they're presented #1-#20 because Mike handles all of the tabulation and writing himself (which is very time-consuming), and because they enjoy the daily discussion generated by the slow reveal.

Seconded. I don't mind that you guys want to be a "secret society," but if you're going to publicize stuff, shouldn't the group's mission/purpose and membership be public and obvious? Maybe I'm not looking in the right place.
I recall Victor tweeting a couple of weeks back along the lines of, "Oh, Skandies, how could you." I looked over the linked blog posts and couldn't figure out what had upset him. Maybe I mis-read the intent of that tweet.

The obvious question among those reviewing those selections: Who are these people?
Your response: None of your business!

Pretty sure this was a good-natured joke about some voting result or another that Vic disagreed with -- as in, "Oh, Skandies, how could you put Melancholia five places ahead of what is clearly the best film of the year, Of Gods and Men."
