My Top Ten favourite Movie of the year: that’s right not ‘best’ as that is unquantifiable, but favourite in what has been a pretty god year on the Silver screen

Gravity-Mainstream magnificence

The Place Beyond the Pines- the qualities of a great HBO Box set in one movie

Mud-Mconaughey’s renaissance continues in the heat of the south

Broken-Low key with great naturalistic performances

Stoker-thoughtful and disturbing US debut from Chan-Wook Park

In A World-Quirky look at the Hollywood voice over business
Only God Forgives-Like Marmite It’s a love/hate thing

Prisoners-Vigilantism through a prism

Filth- A virtuoso performance from James McAvoy underpins an inventive and original movie

Black Fish-Searing indictment of inhumanity for money's sake



Same applies for the Small Screen, here’s my Top Ten Favourite TV Shows, and this year I’ve appreciated consistency as some shows have been rather up and down (Homeland anyone?)

The Fall-Quite brilliant in execution
The Tunnel-Quality Coproduction

Luther-A triumphant return for Season three

Hit & Miss-Novel concept with depth and heart

Louie- Leading the way in what we regard as situation comedy

Veep-razor wit and political malice equals Veep

Nurse Jackie-Always excellent

Mad Men-Some didn’t ‘get’ this season: I did

Top Boy-London’s underbelly bought to life

Hannibal- achieving the unachievable: spinning an established franchise into a success
