My Top 10 Movies of 2010 (So Far)

A few notes:

  • The primary purpose of this list is just to help organize my thoughts. It’s not intended to be taken seriously.
  • The ordering IS currently accurate, with #1 being my favorite film of the year thus far, and so forth.
  • I reserve the right to completely alter the list (including relative orderings) by the time we get to our end-of-year top 10s.

1. Animal Kingdom
2. How To Train Your Dragon
3. Mother
4. Fish Tank (Technically 2009, but i didn’t see it until this year)
5. Inception
6. The Kids Are All Right
7. Shutter Island
8. Kick-Ass
9. Toy Story 3
10. Splice

  • Holy shit Chen! I've been dying to see Animal Kingdom but can't seem to find a local theatre playing it anywhere. Happy to hear it's good enough to place first on a top ten list.

    "Fish Tank" is actually a 2010 release. IMDb it. Release date for US is January of this year.

    where is Scott Pilgrim?

  • Nice choices. I really enjoyed Animal Kingdom – glad I saw it on a whim. Inception rocked. Glad to see Shutter Island getting some love. Have you seen Scott Pilgrim yet? That would definitely make my top ten so far.

  • 11. The Last Airbender.

  • Mother quickly rose to the top of my list, but my #1 might still be A Prophet. Have you seen The Good, the Bad, the Weird? I highly recommend it.

    Wait, you liked How to Train Your Dragon? I am shocked. /sarcasm.

    Man, I am so glad ANIMAL KINGDOM is at the top. Gives me hope…

  • @Anonymous #2, pretty sure Dave hasn't seen Scott Pilgrim yet, since he didn't go to CC.

    There's a bunch on this list I still need to see. I can't even compose a decent top 10 yet… top 5 is hard.

  • good choice.
    I personaly cant undertand the hipe behind Inception.

    No love for Winter's Bone?

  • tlkg

    I wouldn't hesitate to dump Kick Ass, Splice or Fish Tank for Winter's Bone, Art of the Steal, and/or The Square (didnt see release in US until 2010).

    Otherwise pretty spot on.

  • Great list! A lot of movies similar to my own list, but The Square and The Secret in Their Eyes should be there 🙂

  • KeithTalent

    Definitely agree with 1, 3, 4, 5, & 7. Would add Winter's Bone for sure.

    Has anyone seen Mr. Nobody? That's my #1 film so far this year and it will take something cataclysmic to knock it from that spot.
