    Overall I think 2010 was a fairly weak year but there are still quite a few titles I need to catch up with.

    Saw a bunch of movies this year, but didn't get to seeing some of the ones that were well regarded, will probably have to catch up if on DVD/BD soon...


    Reserved for my list (but I'm not all that high on much of anything I saw this year, with a few exceptions, but it was a few and far between).

    10 Restrepo
    9 The Fighter
    8 Harry Potter & The Deathly Hallows Part1
    7 Winters Bone
    6 True Grit
    5 Buried
    4 Toy Story3
    3 I Saw The Devil
    2 Black Swan
    1 The Social Network


    Havent seen The Kings Speech.



    Some notes on films above and some others:

    I Saw The Devil - This film kicked my ass. Its unflinchingly violent,cruel and gruesome, but amazing. Prob would have been # 1 or 2 but required a bit of suspension of disbelief. Some have said its the best serial killer film since Silence of the Lambs and others since Se7en.This film should get more attention in a few months and will become a genre favorite. Some really great camera work here as well and atmospheric photography. I have to see some of this guys others work.

    The Fighter - Im biased because I love boxing.Wards fights especially the Gatti trilogy were always a treat. The brothers drama worked for me.

    Buried - Ryan Reynolds can act? A guy in a box for 90s minutes and it held my attention the entire time.

    Green Zone - I thought this was a really solid movie... up to a point. A very cliched scene late in the movie really soured me on the film.

    Inception - Technically masterful but didnt work for me as a story - which is whats important.

    Restrepo - Political views aside, I cant even imagine what its like to be there.

    The American - I actually appreciated the slow pace, but thought the last scene was overly sappy and kind of ruined the experience for me.

    Kick-Ass - I liked this much more than I thought I would. Hit Girl and Big Daddy deserve their own film. Was undecided if this should make the top10. It almost did.

    The Town - Definitely influenced by Heat. I enjoyed it.

    Rabbit Hole - A few excellent scenes, but the film didnt click as a whole for me.

    Shutter Island - Brilliant first 30 minutes and downhill from there. Saw the ending coming so far in advance, I was almost unable to enjoy the film and just wanted the end to come.

    The Social Network - Fincher for the second time in 3 years gets the nod from me for pic of the year(Zodiac was the other).

    Placeholder, I don't think I've even seen 40 2010 releases yet.


    At this point my clear #1 is Ajami unless Revanche counts as a 2010 release but I don't believe it does.


    The only other really final list worth films I've seen are Kick-Ass, Toy Story 3, and True Grit (and My Son, My Son, What Have Ye Done if that counts)


    Others I've seen that I liked a lot but would probably fall outside of a top 10:


    City Island, Mother and Child, Hachi: A Dog's Tale
