What Were Your Favorite Movies Of The Year?

The end of the year is almost upon us, which means it’s time to reflect some. Let’s start with a simple one, shall we? What’s your pick for the best movie of the year? Click through and share some thoughts.

It’s been an odd year for movies; top grossers are, as usual, split between remakes/sequels and new movies, with a strong focus on kid-friendly and young-adult fare (The top 10 movies of the year, from highest to lowest, were Toy Story 3, Alice In Wonderland, Inception, Harry Potter And the Deathly Hallows, Part 1, Shrek Forever After, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, Iron Man 2, Despicable Me, Clash of The Titans and How To Train Your Dragon). Most of the much-anticipated movies failed to find the success many hoped for at the box office – I’m still bitter about Scott Pilgrim, American moviegoing public – or with critics. But there have certainly been highpoints: for me, the afore-mentioned Scott Pilgrim and Inception, as well as the much-lauded The Social Network. But what movies made your last 52 weeks worthwhile? Tell all in the comments below.

    A lot of great movies are being mentioned (Toy Story 3, Inception, 127 Hours) but am I the only one with some love for Machete? Admittedly the target audience for this is very specific, but for me it was, moment for moment, one of the most fun times I had at the movies all year.

    damn double post

    Inception

  • Danjester

    The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo – Fantastic film, great cinematography, excellent performances from both leads. Shows you don’t need 3D or an insane effects budget.

  • Tomfitz1

    Inception, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (and the two follow-ups), Red, and Kick-Ass.

    Worst? Jonah Hex

  • http://twitter.com/sparticus Mark Walley

    While I loved Toy Story 3, Inception, and enjoyed Iron Man 2, nothing made me smile or left me happier more than Scott Pilgrim. Joy to watch.

  • Anonymous

  • Reinnemann2

    Scott Pilgrim, Inception and Toy Story 3…

  • shasam!

    I didn’t see alot this year, but How To Train Your Dragon 3D was the best of what I did see. 2011 will be better. :)

  • Jojo

    It’s been fairly poor all round with a few exceptions. I thought Kick-Ass was a lot of fun, Iron Man II was good but not a patch on the first one, True Grit was enjoyable but as much as I love the dude, John Wayne still rules the western. My favourite was probably ‘The Girl with the Drgon Tattoo. Jonah Hex should have been great if they had stuck to the original comics more but as it ended up, it sucked buboes. I’m looking forward to Green Lantern & Thor & hope they do the biz but have my doubts. I guess I’m a glass half full guy!? Inception was Ok but I like script over effects..has anyone else seen ‘The disappearance of Alice Creed… I liked that one…i dunno…I think Hollywood just plays safe with formulas and remakes it knows will make money, perhaps it’s time to look elsewhere for original and innovative stuff. Oh.. and can I ask did anyone else find ‘The Deathly Hallows’ impossible to follow – I don’t mean the story but the camera work was all over the shop. Could do with another film like Trainspotting or The Big Lebowski. Anyhoo…thought I’d just mention that screenwriters should be given precedence over explosions..cos I am one (snigger).

  • Mr. M

    I saw very few movies this year, but among my favorites were

    Cyrus
    Salt
    The Social Network

    Least favorite: Knight & Day.

  • Jjfigueira

    Inception
    Toy Story 3
    Social Network
    the expendables

  • Jonshanks_1

    Top 5 for me:

    Scott Pilgrim vs. The World
    Four Lions
    Kick-Ass
    Toy Story 3
    Buried

  • Bill Reed

    I have a lot more films to see, but of what I did, Scott Pilgrim and Toy Story 3 tie for top honors, with Inception following behind.

    The Extra Man was pretty swell, as well, but will surely be edged out of the list by other contenders. If it ever stops snowing, I’ll go out and catch True Grit.

  • unpaidpundit

    In the cinematic histories written 50 to 100 years from now, 2010 will be remembered mainly for being the year in which “Inception” was released.

    my favorite movie of the year is a tie at this moment between Expendables and Tron legacy. Both these movies went beyond my expectations and are just as go with multiple viewings to me.
