The Ten Best Movies of 2010!

12.30.2010

I can understand why some people may think 2010 has been an underwhelming year at the movies. To be sure, the first half of the year was ROUGH. The early part of the summer, filled with movies that were either underwhelming (IRON MAN 2, ROBIN HOOD, PRINCE OF PERSIA) or just plain awful (LAST AIRBENDER, A-TEAM, etc.) led many to think the whole year would be a write-off. Luckily, a few great films came out in the latter half of the summer, and the year was rescued to a degree.

For me, 2010 was actually a pretty damn good year of movie going, but Iíve been ridiculously fortunate in that I was able to attend the Sundance, Fantasia, and Toronto film festivals, so I was able to see a lot of great films that either flew under the radar (THE KILLER INSIDE ME, ANIMAL KINGDOM, THE LOVED ONES, MESRINE), or havenít opened yet (SUBMARINE being a big stand-out).

The following is a list of my top 10, including a few honorable mentions.

#10

Hereís a film that completely flew under my radar. It played Sundance, but I missed it, only to catch up with it when it got an arthouse release earlier this year. This is a brilliant film, although I hesitate to call it a documentary as Iím not sure itís completely true. Banksy, the street artist is indeed a real (anonymous) guy, but Mr. Brainwash? To anyone whoís seen the film, doesnít he seem like the perfect comedic creation? From his exaggerated, Clouseau-esque accent, to his mutton-chop sideburns and rockiní handlebar mustache, this guy was, for lack of a better word, the shit. His climatic piece of art-world flim-flam is perhaps the most damning critique of pseudo-intellectualism Iíve ever seen. Interestingly, I wasnít sure this would end up on my Top 10 until having a good chat about it on the JoBlo Podcast with the great Johnny Moreno. Hearing him talk about this made me revisit it, and damn if this isnít a brilliant piece of work.

#9

Now here is a film of our time. Naturally, one wouldnít think the subject of Islamic fundamentalist terrorism would be a subject rife for satire, but FOUR LIONS pulls it off in a film that's comparable to DR. STRANGELOVE OR HOW I LEARNED TO STOP WORRYING AND LOVE THE BOMB. A film astounding in its rarity as it manages to be both thought provoking and bloody hilarious.

#8

A film I raved about at TIFF, and one thatís likely to clean up at the Oscars in February. I stand by my statement that Colin Firth is a lock for Best Actor as the stuttering King George VI. Itís a tremendous performance in a charming, life-affirming film. If you enjoy films like DEAD POETS SOCIETY, CHARIOTS OF FIRE or anything else that's more about lifting your spirits than impressing you with razzle-dazzle, THE KINGíS SPEECH is the film for you.

#7

I love this film and it features four of my favorite performances of the year. As Dickie Eklund, Christian Bale seems a lock for Best Supporting Actor, which seems more than fair. Mark Wahlberg and Amy Adams have been been horribly underrated (and perhaps overshadowed by Bale) for brilliant performances as well. And for my money, Melissa Leo makes for the most frightening villain of the year as Micky and Dickieís manipulative (but loving) mother. (Also they use Whitesnake on the soundtrack man!)

#6

Like REQUIEM FOR A DREAM, BLACK SWAN is a nightmare come to life. Natalie Portman gives what might be the performance of the year as a ballerina succumbing to madness and I was riveted by her presence on screen. Just as important as Portman's turn is the superb work from Darren Aronofsky behind the camera, who proves once again why heís one of the most important voices in contemporary cinema.

#5

Probably my favorite film out of Sundance, this is a rich Australian crime saga thatís absolutely brilliant. One of my proudest moments of working at JoBlo.com was to hear that the site ran a screening for this film at Comic-Con. If you missed this in theatres, you need to pick this up on DVD/Blu-ray. It's more evidence of the incredible new-wave of Australian Cinema, featuring other gems like RED HILL, THE SQUARE, THE LOVED ONES, and THE PROPOSITION, that, for my money, is one of the most exciting trends to come along in awhile. It's no coincidence that Joel Edgerton, on the basis of this, and THE SQUARE was tapped for the lead of the big Universal prequel of THE THING.

#4

A two-part French crime saga, featuring Vincent Cassel playing real-life gangster Jacques Mesrine, whoís like the French Dillinger. The first part, KILLER INSTINCT, is easily the more action heavy of the two, with PUBLIC ENEMY NO. 1 being more darkly comic. Taken together, it's one of the best gangster epics I've ever seen, and a new classic. This film is everything PUBLIC ENEMIES should have been. If you want a rockiní action flick, reminiscent of gangster classics like SCARFACE, these are the films for you boy-o.

#3

Duh, itís awesome. What else can be said about the Popcorn Movie of the Year at this point. One of the few films to come out this year I went to see twice, the spectacle makes it a blast but the brains of the flick make it essential. Proof positive that summer action films can be smart and donít have to pander to their audience. If Christopher Nolan doesn't land an Oscar nomination for best director, it'll be an oversight of guargantuan proportions. What I love about Nolan is the epic scope he brings to his films, with INCEPTION pushing the envelope even more than the similarly brilliant THE DARK KNIGHT. Upon leaving the snaek preview, I overheard someone say, "I feel like Christopher Nolan's just had sex with my brain". Indeed.

#2

Another no-brainer and David Fincherís finest work since FIGHT CLUB. Similar to that, this follows another group of dissatisfied men, these being the college boys behind Facebook, although thatís not really what the movie is about. Itís probably as much about Facebook as CITIZEN KANE was about newspapers. Itís about greed and ego and it's essential viewing. If this doesnít pick up a few Oscars, itíll be a tragedy. I also hope that star Jesse Eisenberg isn't ignored for his layered turn as Mark Zuckerberg, which maybe be one of the most skilled, and disciplined performances of the year.

#1

OK, so technically this is three movies (THE YEAR OF OUR LORD 1974, 1980, 1983) but so what? This is my list and I make the rules! Sadly, I was not able to see these films on the big screen but I caught up with them on DVD and thank God I did. Of the three, 1974 has to be my favorite due to the incredible performance from star Andrew Garfield. Itís no coincidence that the top two films both feature Garfield in leading roles as this guyís riding a wave similar to the one Edward Norton did in the late nineties. All three parts are a fascinating, if depressing, story about evil. This is the type of evil thatís very real; where good men stand by and do nothing in the interest of self-preservation, while the most heroic tend to be those on the fringe. Itís no wonder that the real heroes of this film series turn out to be an egocentric, muckraking young journalist, an alcoholic barrister, a crooked cop, and a male prostitute. THE RED RIDING TRILOGY is a brilliant series of films, and the crowning cinematic achievement of 2010.

Runners Up: TRUE GRIT, THE KILLER INSIDE ME, THE KIDS ARE ALL RIGHT, TOY STORY 3, THE TOWN, RED, WHITE & BLUE, THE LOVED ONES, BLUE VALENTINE, CARLOS, 127 HOURS, CATFISH, WINTER'S BONE and CYRUS. I should also make note of SCOTT PILGRIM VS. THE WORLD. While I gave it a decidedly mixed review, it holds up amazingly well through repeat viewings. I still have some issues with it, but I don't think anyone can deny that it's one of the best directed films of the year. Edgar Wright's the real deal. I imagine that somewhere in the VERY near future, he's going to make something legend- "wait for it"- ary.

Extra Tidbit: As for WORST OF, I'd say COP OUT, THE A-TEAM, LITTLE FOCKERS, THE LAST AIRBENDER, PASSION PLAY, and the Katherine Heigl double threat: KILLERS and LIFE OR SOMETHING LIKE IT.

No Way

The A-Team to me was surprisingly good...There were so many more terrible movies this year. I bought The A-Team on a whim for the fact is was 13 bucks on BluRay at Best Buy and I dont regret it a bit....what an awesome movie. Joe Carnahan is going to have an awesome career.

Very Cool Picks!

Can't begin to rank them in order, but I was surprised at how many films I ended up loving this year. These include True Grit, The Fighter, Inception, Kick-Ass, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, Black Swan, The Town, The Social Network, Toy Story 3 and 127 Hours (I know I forgot some titles).

Nice list, though I havent seen red riding, animal kingdom, the king's speech or four lions. For me the fighter was number 1 though. Love the nod to exit through the gift shop, i loved that doc (or complete scam) was smiling throughout.

'Red Riding' is a brilliant series of films? Eh, not really. They were pretty average fare as far as crime drama goes, over here in the UK. Hugely overrated stuff, IMO.

Great list of the "best" movies 2010. Although I would place Shutter Island somewhere on the list. Haven't seen True Grit yet.

But perhaps one could assemble a "most entertaining" movies list 2010 also. That list would incorporate Tron, How to train your dragon, Kick Ass, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, A-team and perhaps even Iron Man 2 etc. these movies were entertaining imo. nothing more, nothing less.

Pretty good list, I'm on par with most of with.

But I just can't help but laugh whenever I see you glorify Mesrine. That was one of (technically 2 of) the most awful movies ever. I mean I know it's hip for Americans to like European cinema but not when Europeans (the French aside) themselves say the movie is crap.
How could you not laugh at all the silly disguises that Cassel goes through (especially in the 2nd part). And at one point he ridicules the main cop's captain Ahab like beard and

How could you not laugh at all the silly disguises that Cassel goes through (especially in the 2nd part). And at one point he ridicules the main cop's captain Ahab like beard and then later on he dons the exact same fake beard himself. He beats up his wife for no apparent reason, hell, he beats everyone for no apparent reason making him one of the most unsympathetic characters in a biopic I've ever seen. Both parts seem so rushed that it's just scene after scene of random events from Mesrine's life.
I'm sorry for ranting but if you call this movie good that's one thing, if you put it in your top 10 of the year then it's rant worthy.

(Update)

Like I said "the French aside" and Rotten Tomatoes is just another website where everyone and his uncle can vote on a film. I'm talking about people who actually know a thing or 2 about films.

But didn't the film get nominated (or won) a Cesar? I mean, that has to mean some French thought it was a good film. Also, both parts have an 83% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, so evidently a good deal of critics liked it.

Seems there might've been some others I caught on DVD, too, that aren't coming to mind. Still hoping to catch Black Swan, The King's Speech, and True Grit before they're gone.

No way in hell is The A-Team one of the worst films of 2010 What people always seem to forget with films like A-Team is that you're supposed to go in with a hightened sense of reality. No way would a tank be able to soften it's impact by firing towards the ground, but it's part of the fun to just sit and roll with it.

Yes, that's right, I'm 4 years old...
They weren't abortions for me, you idiot. Haven't you heard of a "personal opinion"? How would you like if talked I trash about your favorite movies? I feel like doing that to your post about Red Riding. But I won't because I'm not a fucking douchebag.

So glad you didnt choose Inception as number 1 of the year. I also think its overrated. Dont get me wrong, when it first came out I loved it. I think its original, has a great story, likable characters, great action, and a great ending. But I've seen like 5 more times since then and it only gets worse with subsequent viewings. I find myself more bored and annoyed each time I rewatch it with Leo repeating his dreams shtick up until the final 20 mins. I think its still top 5, but not number 1 so

I think The Social Network is number 1 for the year but I honestly havent seen Red Riding yet so I cant judge that film, or films.

It's an okay list. I mean to each their own.

I can respect you for not liking something, but in no means was "The A-Team", one of the worst movies of the year. I actually thought it was a great, action flick that was a good time and did not take itself too seriously.

As for my top 5 it would have to be:
1. Toy Story 3
2. The Kids Are All Right
3. Inception
4. The Town
5. Iron Man 2

It was a great year for movies.

No offense, but this is a terrible list in my opinion. First of all, not even talking about the list, but the A-Team was really THAT terrible? I'm not saying it should be included in your top 10 but saying it was on par with Last Airbender as well as worse then Prince of Persia is plain stupidity, no other way to say it. Despite "critics" apparently thinking it was on par with Last Airbender, audiences gave it a 72% on Rotten Tomatoes and it has like a 7 or something on IMDB. Both totally

Both totally acceptable and rather impressive for a mindless action shoot em up that made The Expendables look boring by comparison.

As for the list itself, awful. Red Riding trilogy at #1? First of all, that's cheating. Secondly, it's still not even close to #1, despite how much BBC fanboys want it to be. Mesrine better then the Fighter and Black Swan? Yeahh....

I really would've liked to see Kick Ass getting at least a Runner up spot....And with Toy Story 3, if it was to be added then every year Pixar should get best pic.....Overall Great list Chris

Glad to see Red Riding at #1

It's an amazing trilogy. I'd put Black Swan at #2. Inception, though, is the most overrated film in recent memory in my opinion...

13 - Date Night (Waist of funny talent)
12 - The Crazies (Close to decent)
11 - Edge of Darkness (Mel was good)
10 - The Expendables (Way overrated)
09 - Alice in Wonderland (Overrated)
08 - Iron-Man 2 (Should've been better)
07 - Shutter

Great list and I have to give Props to you, C.B. for drawing my attention to two of my favorite films of 2010 that I heard you rave about through the JoBlo Podcast: Animal Kingdom and Tucker and Dale vs. Evil. Tucker and Dale actually played at the Spooky Movie Horror Film Festival here in Silver Spring (Just a minute outside of Washington, DC) and I went to the one screening of it. I loved the hell out of it. Same goes for Animal Kingdom, which played in a couple of art house cinemas in DC.

The A-Team was basically a better Michael Bay film, which is still very bad. And would people stop already about Harry Potter. It was good, but not great.

I just really had a problem with A-TEAM. With the talent involved it could have been a great action flick. I thought the villians in it were quite possibly the worst actin movie villians of all time.

I really disliked A-Team as well. My biggest problem with it was all the CG. Most of the action scenes felt cheap and fake.

Sharlto Copley was the best part though.

It's so cool to see that you have Mesrine: Killer Instinct and Animal Kingdom on the list. Both blew my mind.

But now you've lit the fire under my ass to check out The Red Riding Trilogy. They've had them on the Instant Play on Netflix, so if they're (hopefully) still there, I'm watching them ASAP. Great list.

Interesting choice for number 1. The red riding trilogy were released as TV movies over here so I'm not sure what the American release was like but I don't think you could have seen it on the big screen. Great list though, can't wait to get around to seeing all these Oscar movies.
