My Top 10 Movies of 2010

The Oscar nominees will be announced tomorrow morning, so here goes the annual tradition: My top 10 favorite movies of the past year, with apologies to incredible pieces like The Town, How to Train Your Dragon, Rabbit Hole, and Inside Job, for not making the top 10.

Here they are, in alphabetical order:

1. Another Year

2. Black Swan

3. Buried

4. Cyrus

5. Inception

6. The Kids Are All Right

7. The King's Speech

8. Shutter Island

9. The Social Network

10. Toy Story 3

And my favorite movie of 2010, is Inception. The concepts mentioned in the film were too overwhelming. Too overpowering for any other movie daring to compete - at least in my mind.

For second place, believe it or not, I'm going for Toy Story 3.

So Oscar night ... here we come!


  1. I'm happy you inserted Black swan in your list actually i was not hopeful about that !Maybe because of your review ...eventhough you gave it Mojo i felt movie didn't attract you enough or at least as Top 10 !
    Without considering 3 movie which i have no idea about them at present : Toy story , Social network and black swan are absolutely in my list.
    I guess True grit is another option.
    I 'll bring mine here soon.

  2. Really? I thought my descriptions of "Black Swan" showed I'm giving it a pretty high mark!

    Looking forward to your list ...

  3. for me the new cinematic year begins after Oscar !
    Here we are

    1.Social Network

    2. Toy Story 3

    3.King Speech

    4.Animal Kingdom

    5.True Grit

    6.Blue Valentine

    7..Black Swan

    8. Buried

    9. Winter Bone
    10. Inception

  4. Yeah ... maybe I should push back my top 10 announcement time from the night before Oscar nominations, to the night before Oscars!

    Interesting how "True Grit" has developed a love/hate relationship among viewers. Nobody is indifferent towards it.
