An Awards worthy view of the top 10 movies of 2010
'How To Train Your Dragon,' '127 Hours,' 'Inception' and...?
Even in the silly world of awards season, where the race is sometimes more interesting then the eventual winners, "the best" is a completely arbitrary thing. Picks are made on taste, emotional attachment and personal history just as much as someone's knowledge of cinema as an art form. So, it's no surprise one person's top 10 movies of the year may not match another's.
2010 was a marked improvement over 2009 in that there was a much stronger pool of quality films to choose from. You only have to look at HitFix's compiled worst 10 list to see that there were also far less god awful films than the year before.
Therefore, with careful deliberation and attention, my list of top ten films over the last 12 months are as follows:
10. "How to Train Your Dragon"
9. "True Grit"
8. "Another Year"
7. "The Ghost Writer"
6. "The Kids Are All Right"
5. "Rabbit Hole"
4. "Black Swan"
3. "127 Hours"
1. "I Am Love"
To find out how I came to such a deliberation, please check out the fantastic video edited by our own Alex Dorn embedded in this post.
Almost made it: "The King's Speech," "Inside Job," "Blue Valentine," "Fish Tank," "Please Give," "Let Me In," "I Love You Phillip Morris"
Respected but not adored: "The Social Network," "Animal Kingdom," "The Fighter," "Night Catches Us"
Underrated: "Tamara Drewe," "Easy A," "The Company Men," "Scott Pilgrim vs. The World," "The Book of Eli"
