Martin Scorsese's latest continues a trend since his Oscar-winning The Departed in making very different films than those he is normally associated with. Once again, he succeeds, giving the audience a visually beautiful film, with some excellent production design by Dante Ferretti, sublime art direction and costume design. Finally, Asa Butterfield, Chloe Grace Moretz, Sacha Baron Cohen and Ben Kingsley top off the most enjoyable film of the Christmas releases.
The Thin White Dude's Prognosis - 8.5/10
Runner-Up: 13 Assassins - Takashi Miike's film is full of life and has more breathtaking moments than all of this years' Hollywood action movies combined.
Second-Most Deadly Disease: The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 - Aside from a long-winded title, it lacks the genuine substance that it so promises.
Avoid Like The Plague: Age Of Heroes - Danny Dyer is embarrassingly bad in this terrible, murder-by-numbers film that has no reason to exist
