The Artist (2011)

Hollywood, 1927: As silent movie star George Valentin wonders if the arrival of talking pictures will cause him to fade into oblivion, he sparks with Peppy Miller, a young dancer set for a big break.

Is it better than the best silent movies have to offer? No, certainly not. But we only tend to remember the very best of something nearly 100 years old. They churned the things out in those days, and I'd venture to say The Artist is better than most of them. As an homage/tribute to the era, it hits many of the right buttons.

Plus there's Uggie. Uggie wins.

The type of movie that you see six months after award season/the Oscars and you think "Gee, what was all the fuss about?"
