Best Films of 2010 Revisited

If you see as many movies as I do, by the time the year is over and every critic is publishing their Best lists, all of which resemble each other, and everyone is only talking about the same 10 movies through the end of February, you get anxious to move forward to a new year of films.  But before I do that, it seems like a good time to walk down memory lane and revisit my favorite films from 2010.  By my count, I saw 236 releases last year and below are my favorite 37.  Note that this is a revised list, reordered a bit after some reflection, and adding some that weren't on my original.  These lists are constantly evolving.  However, for now, my favorite of last year remains the same: an unexpected verbose treasure about the creation of Facebook.  I look forward to your comments.

  2. Kick-Ass
  3. 127 Hours

  1. Man, I commented on this but forgot to do the secret word thing...

    Abbreviated version of my comment: Social Network as #1? Boo. Otherwise, I've still got a lot of movies to see. Updating my Blockbuster Queue as I type.
