Top 10 Best Movies Of 2010- Revised
OK...I'm free to change my mind...right? I caught one more movie this week that's going to change my mind about my Top 10 Movies of 2010 list. Keep in mind I wrote this list while some 2010 movies hadn't been released yet.
Since it's on the books as having a 2010 release date, and its most likely going to be an Oscar contender, I wanted to add it it.
Rarely are there movies that do a beautiful job of showing how people overcome adversity and grow from it. The King's Speech is one of those movies. Here's my revisions:
#10 - Shutter Island - A excellent tale, a dark backdrop and a story that I couldn't quite figure out until the end.
#9 - The Kids Are Alright - I watched it on a 7 1/2" blurry screen on a flight from Detroit to Paris. It was still good.
#8 - True Grit - The Dude does The Duke justice. Brilliant dialogue in a classic western style.
#7 - The Fighter - I apologize for calling this one a modern day "Rocky." It has it's own story and a lot of heart.
#6 - Toy Story 3 - You win this time Disney.
#5 - Inception - Don't tell me it was too hard to follow. This was a fantastic, original, and visually stunning idea.
#3 - (Two Way Tie) 127 Hours & Black Swan- Minus the whole arm cutting off thing, I felt a close connection to 127 Hours love of the outdoors. A great nature movie. Black Swan was just beautiful in every way.
#2 - The King's Speech - Colin Firth and Geoffery Rush pull off a masterpiece. I love movies about people overcoming their disabilities. This one is fantastic.
#1 - The Social Network - Intense, dramatic and topical. Rarely does a movie draw you in this much. I had to check my watch because the two hour run time flew by.
