My Top 10 Movies of 2010

January 11, 2011

A little break from this blog’s theme.

10. Four Lions

A hilarious take on religious fanaticism.  Uncomfortably funny.

9. Mother (Madeo)

A well-constructed Korean suspense drama.  I like the way this movie is shot.  Great twist in the end.  I smell an American remake.

8. Scott Pilgrim vs. The World

Exhibit A on the theme “Box Office Performance Does Not Reflect How Good a Film Is”.It’s a hate it or love it movie.  Most folks of the videogame generation will love it as I did.

7. Exit Through The Gift Shop

A very unorthodox documentary on graffiti art.  Life imitates art… and subsequently becomes a farce.  Some say it’s a fake.  Fake or not, either conclusion leaves it no less provocative.

6. 127 Hours

One guy trapped in an isolated canyon.  Cuts his own arm off to escape.  How do you make a 90-minute movie out of that?  Danny Boyle shows us how in this action-drama movie without much action.

5. Inception

Sometimes I think this movie is not as smart as it thinks it is.  Nevertheless, it’s a great ride.

4. Black Swan

A heavy-handed psychological thriller.  Follows a ballet dancer’s descent into madness.  Nothing is subtle here.

3. The Social Network

Strip this movie down and you’re left with the timeless themes of friendship and betrayal.  That is why it works.

2.  The King’s Speech

Brilliantly executed script.  A fine mix of history, comedy and heartwarming drama.  As a former stutterer myself, I can say that Colin Firth’s acting was spot on.

1. How To Train Your Dragon

The only movie in this list that I can watch over and over again.  Best flying scenes I’ve seen.

That’s my list for 2010.  Which one is your #1 movie?
