All films I saw in January (listed in order of preference) - Eastwood tops the list

I have finally posted every film that I saw in January; they are listed below in order of best at the top and working down through my preference. This is something I have been meaning to get on with for about a year. I don't want to pick and choose films to look at in depth; I would rather skim over every film in order to give a sort of well rounded view of my film consumption and opinions. Plus, the whole reason I do this is to stay sharp and make sure I am thinking about everything, rather than selectively paying particular attention to some things and letting others wash over me.

If anything, I have been a little too thorough at times, though it cannot be helped when a film is worthy of discussion. May have to find another device to limit the time it takes to get posts up though. I imagine this will come in the form of bullet points for the 'what it did particularly well' and 'missed opportunities' headings, which I will be changing to 'what I liked' and 'what I didn't' or somethig, in order to reflect the fact that these are strictly my opinions rather than objective truths. Something that should be obvious anyway, but just to show that I know this and openly welcome disagreement.

Any problems with the list, let me know your thoughts.
