2010 Movie Favorites

I love movies and with an infant in the house it is nice that watching movies is something I can share with my husband and still take care of the baby.  So, I’m sure 2011 will bring more moving watching and less book reading.  This year I’ve added reviews of some of my favorite movies- Only You, the Lord of the Rings trilogy, A Few Good Men, Four Weddings And a Funeral, What’s Eating Gilbert Grape, Romancing the Stone, Silence of the Lambs, Pride & Prejudice miniseries.  The rest of my favorite 100 movies is here.  It’s an ongoing project.

I also keep track of movies I see for the first time in my monthly 5 word reviews.  This year I watched 63 movies and here are my favorite 10 with their 5 words…

Inception with Leonardo DiCaprioDreams. Orginal. Ending Greatly Debated.

WALL-E with Ben BurttEndearing Robot Saves 2805 Earth.

(500) Days of Summer with Zooey DeschanelQuirky Charming Original Un-Love Story. 

State of the Union with Florence AuerPolitics Sure Hasn’t Changed Much.

The Hurt Locker with Jeremy RennerWar. Iraq. Bombs. Tense Thriller.

Extract with Jason BatemanFunny. Bateman & Affleck are perfect.

Penelope with Christina RicciSweet Piggy  Fairy Tale.  Fun.

Sunshine Cleaning with Amy AdamsCrime Scene Cleanup Made Heartwarming.

New in Town with Renée ZellwegerSweet Romantic Comedy. Minnesota Flavor.

Avatar with Sam WorthingtonMust see 3D.  Visually stunning.

    Loved Inception and Avatar – also in my top five movies of the year. Avatar because it’s just breathtaking and unlike anything I’ve ever seen. Inception because it just blew my mind.

    Inception – was very clever. We enjoyed it.

    Wall-e – just adorable. Im a sucker for animated films and it needs to be bad for me not to like one (Alpha and Omega BAD).

    Sunshine Cleaning & New in Town are two I want to see.

    Avatar – um I know its bad to say but wasn’t really taken by it. For me it was just an average movie with some pretty cool effects. To be fair when I was it I was not in best frame of mind!

    I will be in the same boat soon enough, I’m sure! Thank goodness I like movies. 🙂 You’ve listed several great movies. Inception was my top favorite this year. I saw The Hurt Locker last year and really liked it–and Sunshine Cleaning. I also really liked WALL.E.
