10 from '10: Favorite Movies

I don't know that I'm even going to be able to come up with 10 movies from 2010 to put on my "best of" list. But, I know 2010 was a hell of a lot better than last year (when the only two movies I was willing to admit I thoroughly enjoyed were Up in the Air and The Hangover).

Here are my favorites of this year:

1. Toy Story 3
2. The Social Network
3. Piranha
4. Inception
5. How to Train Your Dragon
6. Exit Through the Gift Shop
7. The Town
8. True Grit


Okay, that's it. I can't even come up with a full ten. I mean, I liked Black Swan, Waiting for Superman, The King's Speech, Tangled, Winter's Bone, 127 Hours, The Red Riding Trilogy, and a handful of other movies. I thought Jackie Weaver's performance in Animal Kingdom was hands down the best acting I saw all year long. However, I don't know that I'll ever feel the need to go back and re-watch any of them. That should be a criteria for one of your favorite movies...right?

Not be a Negative Nancy, but here's my list of the 12 WORST movies of 2010 (I'm adding two to account for the missing numbers in my "favorites" list):

1. Skyline
2. For Colored Girls
3. A Nightmare on Elm Street
4. Clash of the Titans
5. Robin Hood
6. Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time
7. Predators
8. Knight and Day
9. The Last Airbender
10. Date Night
11. Saw 3D
12. The Kids Are All Right

My cinematic New Years Resolution in 2011 is to watch more documentaries and foreign films. I saw a lot of great documentaries on Netflix this year that I wish I'd experienced when they came out.
