I really wanted to put together a concluding list of the year — films I loved, films I’m glad to have seen, to express some sort of an opinion of my own before the Academy gives their awards. I only chose categories where I had shortlist and where I was more confident in. Runner-ups are in brackets and films and I haven’t seen Captain Phillips, August: Osage County, Nebraska, Mud, Rush or Stoker, so none of them made the cut. Let me know what you think!!

- I didn’t announce it with as big of a bang as I should have, but here it is: I GOT NETFLIX!!
- Should you be an American reading this and don’t get it, here’s the deal: my home country doesn’t have Netflix. All DVDs are crazy expensive. It’s a whole different world out there in the wilderness.
- Life’s been much better film–wise, too. My first Netflix film was Winter’s Bone and it was pretty amazing. I love Jennifer Lawrence more with each of her films. My other favourite of this week was This Is The End, which was the funniest film I’ve seen in a while.
- Yet the most exciting thing I’ve watched has been Game of Thrones. I’m on episode four and it’s even better than I was hoping. As a sidenote I can say it’s awesome having a brother who is nerdy enough to get really excited about GoT along with you.
- Oh, and The Desolation of Smaug was also really cool, even though undercooked.
- Tomorrow I will see Love Actually for the first time, in honour of lille juleaften – small Christmas night? I don’t know. Anyway, yes, it’s one of these films I curse myself for not having seen. But apparently seeing it on the 23rd of December is a tradition in Norway. I’m not complaining. 😉
