2010 in Cinema

2010 was a great year for movies. These were my top ten faves..

1. Inception (LOVED IT, really unique, and had me on the edge of my seat from start to finish.)
2. 127 Hours (I am putting this as number 2 because WOW. The acting, the intensity, everything. I really hope James Franco gets the Academy.)
3. Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (This movie had me laughing out loud. Loved how different it was, loved the soundtrack, loved the filming, loved it. So much in fact I saw it twice in the theatres and that's saying a lot.)
4. Easy A (Emma Stone is one of my new favorite comedians, and I will forever laugh when I hear "Pocket Full of Sunshine")
5. The A Team (I think this is lower on my list because I saw it at the drive-in and was really tired.)
6. Red (I was surprised how much I liked this movie.)
7. How to Train Your Dragon (I enjoyed this movie just a tad more than Toy Story 3, just because it was different and had a lot of heart.)
8. Toy Story 3 (Yes, I was one of those people that cried. Really touching, and a great way to end the series.)
9. The Other Guys (This movie had me cracking up the whole time. But I do tend to like Will Ferrell more than others.)
10. Alice in Wonderland (Beautiful filming, and the Queen of Hearts stole the show for me.)

Honorable mention goes to Catfish for how it haunted me, Knight and Day for surprising me with how much I didn't hate Tom Cruise in it, and Date Night for the laughs and funny lines. And believe it or not I liked Devil. I thought it was good for a popcorn muncher.

I saw Black Swan, and though I liked it okay, and yes Natalie Portman was really good at acting all crazy, I just don't get all the hype. Though, it was pretty built up for me before I saw it, so it could be that.

(I should say I still haven't seen True Grit, The Fighter, or Blue Valentine. All on my list of one's I need to see before the Academy Awards.)

Okay. I remember you saying how much you loved Inception when you first saw it. STIL haven't seen it & now it's at the redbox.

But count me in on How to Train your Dragon and TOy story 3. For some reason I saw those :)
