Another year, another Dorkfest. Mr. Grierson and I wrapped up our yearly ritual around 11:31 p.m. Eastern time this evening. This was our quickest discussion in years, probably because we worked together all year and pretty much had each other’s lists figured out.
We had far more crossover than we usually do, which Tim attributed to the aforementioned 2011 working together, but I think it’s just because I’m objectively correct and Grierson’s mostly misguided viewpoints happened to accidentally coincide with my empirical correctness more often this year.
We’ll be announcing our next project soon at @griersonleitch on Twitter very soon. Until then, here’s 2008’s Dorkfest, and here’s 2009’s, and here’s 2010’s. Now, Grierson’s and Leitch’s top 10 films of 2011.
