Yay, year-end wrap-up!

Movies Seen In Theatres: 40
10 were released in 2009 (or 11 depending on how you count Un Prophete), the rest from 2010


I'm trying to make a top 10, and it's hard! I saw lots of great movies, and a few movies that I really really enjoyed, despite not being the kind of movie that should maybe be on a "best of" list. Plus, there are still a bunch of movies I need to see before I can make any kind of definitive 2010 list. Nonetheless, I usually make my rankings based on what I saw in a calendar year, not counting the ones I see later (flawed methodology, to be sure.)

My top 5 would be maybe some combination of (in alphabetical order, because I am a wimp):

Black Swan
The King's Speech
Inception
Never Let Me Go
The Social Network

...to which I'd probably add:

Easy A
Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work
The Kids Are All Right
Scott Pilgrim vs. The World
True Grit

...and then I'd sneak in and 11 and 12, because I also really enjoyed:

Please Give
The Trotsky

...and maybe a 13, while not technically a "best" movie, one that I enjoyed a great deal:

Babies (because, people--Babies! Babieeeeeeeees!)


Dishonourable mention to the only two movies I saw that were really bad:

Sex and the City 2

Babies!!

You Will Meet... is reeeeeeeallly not worth any effort. Not good.

Top tens are definitely hard. I sort of gave up trying. CJP ranked *all* the movies he saw---I thought about that, but it seemed too hard! And he saw twice as many things as I did! (And you saw twice that, even....)
