My top 25 list of theatrically released films 2010:
1. Summer Wars
Japanese anime about how a math nerd tries to save the global internet from an AI program that goes rogue after its release by the US military in a beta test.
A great movie that deals with extended families and the importance of family loyalty and support network. Cutest couple in a movie this year.
3. Inside Job
Could be considered a murder mystery as we still are sure who killed the economy with the 2008 real estate and banking fueled financial crisis and the people we know were guilty are still roaming free....
4. Winter's Bone
5. Ghost Writer
6. Black Swan
7. How to Train Your Dragon
8. The Social Network
9. Client 9: The Rise and Fall of Elliot Spitzer
(weird numerological coincidence) The director in an odd turn hired actress Wrenn Schmidt to acted out the transcript's of Angelina's answers to the director's interview. Angelina was Eliot Spitzer's favorite go to escort. Wrenn Schmidt deserves a special acting Oscar for some of the goofy things she has to say.
10. My Dog Tulip
11. Scott Pilgrim vs. the World
Best indie rock soundtrack this year. Best popcorn flick this year as well.
12. Toy Story 3
13. True Grit
14. The Town
15. 127 Hours
17. The Fighter
You will be hard pressed to find a more doting and protective mother in a film these past couple of years.
19. Blue Valentine
Best romance and onscreen chemistry this year. Pack kleenex in sleeve when watching.
21. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
22. Soul Kitchen
Best rock and classic R&B soundtrack in this charming and funny German film that revolves around a hard working Turkish restauranter and his brother who can't stay out of trouble.
23. Despicable Me
24. Iron Man 2
25. The Prophet
