I have a serious complex about trying to categorize and list my top movies of the year, and so therefore I refuse to do so. Lists are arbitrary and mean next to nothing to anyone but the one who makes them, so if the list means nothing to me, then it becomes worthless. I’ve tried to figure out a good way to do this so that films I truly enjoyed could get a year-end nod without me having to break anything down and decide any sort of order. The list is completely subjective and I purposefully called this “Favorite Films” so that the focus is on my enjoyment and not simply filmmaking quality. So with that said, here’s a quick glance at my favorite and least favorite films of 2010. This is by no means definitive, as I still have quite a few potentially good ones to check out. If this is popular I may update it and continue doing similar lists, backwards through the years.


Toy Story 3


Black Swan


Temple Grandin


Honorable Mentions:

True Grit

Shutter Island

The Kids Are All Right


Scott Pilgrim vs. the World
