Stalker's Top Ten 2009: Stirton Productions
The last Stalker's Top Ten for 2009 has arrived, and since there are no other submissions and I've not missed anyone off, I'm pulling out the trump card, a Top Ten from people who really make films, films that have been sold for real money.
Special thanks to these guys, for I know that they had a hard time battling between each other to choose the final list. You can read more about them on the Stirton Productions site, where you can even get hold of their DVD's, and watch One Day Removals on Raindance TV and before you head off to buy them you can read the reviews on Filmstalker.
The previous Stalker's Top Tens are all still accessible, including those from previous years, and just because I'm stopping doesn't mean you need to. I'll welcome top tens any time from readers.
Now, over to Stirton Productions to hear what they thought was the best of last year:
Ain't been easy to compile.
Most liked in decending order.
1. Watchmen (Filmstalker review) - We had to make Kerwin (Producer, effects artist) read the comic before seeing movie, imagine!
2. Moon (Filmstalker review) - It's on the moon, like Space 1999
3. Frost/Nixon (Filmstalker review) - Michael Sheen is a polymorph
4. Mesrine: Killer Instinct (Filmstalker review) - Like a lovely perfume ad with swears and guns
5. The Imaginarium of Dr Parnassus - yay, Terry
6. The Damned United - He thought it was all over [No, you're only half way through the list! - Richard]
7. Gran Torino (Filmstalker review) - Drokk! He was the law
8. Valkyrie - We likes our Nazis, we do
9. Coco Avant Chanel - Because it has her in it
10. Men Who Stare at Goats - Clooney is top comic. He's going in the van for the US remake of One Day Removals (Filmstalker review)
Many big films didn't make it in as they were too pants to watch. Top of all lists pants was Terminator Salvation (Filmstalker review). Which was beyond trousers.
Avatar (Filmstalker review) gets a special mention for having pointless floating mountains. If had had the money that film cost I could have bought Poland.
So there you have it, Messers Mark Stirton (Director/Writer), Michael Clark (Producer), and Kerwin Robertson (Producer) gave us a real film-maker's Stalker's Top Tens, and a funny one it was too. I have to say I'm astounded at the appearance of Coco Avant Chanel, that really doesn't strike me as your kind of film guys, did the wives/girlfriends/groupies make you go and see that?
A U.S. remake of One Day Removals sounds so insanely stupid I actually want to see it happen! Would Clooney really be talking Doric, or would the whole thing be transplanted to the U.S.? I think a Doric Clooney would be superb.
