My ten favorite films of last year, for those of you that care about such stuff:
- The Social Network
- How to Train Your Dragon
- The Fighter
- Toy Story 3
- The Town
- Tron: Legacy
- Scott Pilgrim vs the World
- True Grit
- Black Swan
It was tough choosing between The Social Network and Inception as my number one. Both are excellent films. But ultimately, Sorkin’s dialog, Fincher’s pacing and phenomenal performances from the entire cast put the Social Network on top. Movie is flawless.
I also thoroughly enjoyed Harry Potter’s lengthy deathly hallows field trip, but it felt odd only putting half of a film on my list. That Karate Kid flick was pretty great too.
And I’ll be the first to admit that both Tron and Scott Pilgrim were victims to some unfortunate script and directorial decisions, but dolgum those movies were fun. And the day I stop going to the movies for some good ol’ fashioned escapism is the day I stop drawing comics about Egyptian space girls shooting cowboys in space.
I also regret that I’ve yet to see The Kings Speech and 127 Hours, but I expect I’ll see them both before this year’s Oscars- despite how ridiculously pointless that award show has gotten to be.
