  1. To be honest, I was worried that I would see Anonymous listed here for its painfully tacky CGI Elizabethan London. I’m going to predict that Tree of Life will win one Oscar next year and it’ll be this one.

  2. I don’t know what Ghost Protocol or Sherlock Holmes: Game of Shadows are supposed to bring to the table, but I feel hat this may be a battle between Planet of the Apes, Hugo (my main pick here) and possibly Super 8 (though that’s only on the train crash scene, which really was good).
