Ted (Seth MacFarlane, 2012)
Perhaps a little too reliant on blue humour, plus MacFarlane's love of pop culture can get heavy but mostly it was a damn funny flick. I'll be looking forward to seeing what MacFarlane comes up with next.
Attack the Block (Joe Cornish, 2011)
This was also pretty damn funny, worked brilliantly as an engaging alien thriller too. Cornish did really well with what was an obviously low budget and though the central group of characters could have had the potential to be really annoying the cast do a great job of making them charming and convincing instead.
