Best Movies of 2010

Ryan Costantino
 
Winter's Bone [Blu-ray]
Winter's Bone [Blu-ray]
"This could be the movie of the year!  Jennifer Lawrence deserves the best actress Oscar.  John Hawkes deserves at least a nomination for best supporting actor.  The film deserves nominations for Best Picture, Director, Screenplay.  Seriously trying to figure out how a better movie will come along this year.  A new, bonafide American classic."
Never Let Me Go [Blu-ray]
Never Let Me Go [Blu-ray]
"A beautiful and distubing film that runs the full gamut of the emotional spectrum.  How did this movie not get any awards love?  Haunting and soul wrenching."
True Grit (Two-Disc Blu-ray/DVD Combo)
True Grit (Two-Disc Blu-ray/DVD Combo)
"A masterful Western chockful of memorable performances.  Kinda wrastlin' with Winter's Bone for favorite movie of the year."
Scott Pilgrim vs. The World - Level Up! Collector's Edition (Blu-ray + DVD)
Scott Pilgrim vs. The World - Level Up! Collector's Edition (Blu-ray + DVD)
"An amazing film centered around a d-bag character.  Edgar Wright is 3 for 3 with his films, although I would rank them in order of release.  There's some crazy stuff in this movie."
The Fighter (Two-Disc Blu-ray/DVD Combo)
The Fighter (Two-Disc Blu-ray/DVD Combo)
"Just an all around great movie, grounded by phenomenal performances and an all too realistic family dynamic.  A bonafide new American classic!"
The Social Network (Two-Disc Collector's Edition) [Blu-ray]
The Social Network (Two-Disc Collector's Edition) [Blu-ray]
"I was extremely hesitant to watch this film.  I really had no interest.  But after watching it, well, the film is seared into my mind.  Definitely a great film."
Animal Kingdom [Blu-ray]
Animal Kingdom [Blu-ray]
"Friggin' awesome Aussie crime film, with a jaw dropping performance by Jackie Weaver as the matriarch of the Cody family."
The Ghost Writer [Blu-ray]
The Ghost Writer [Blu-ray]
"A terrific, old fashoned, slow burn thriller.  If you have attention span issues seek something else.  If you have patience and don't need constant boom booms in your movies this is a vastly rewarding viewing experience."
How to Train Your Dragon (Two-Disc Blu-ray/DVD Combo)
How to Train Your Dragon (Two-Disc Blu-ray/DVD Combo)
"So far this is my favorite movie of 2010.  I will rewatch the heck out of this movie.  Pretty much the greatest dragon movie ever made."
Toy Story 3 [Blu-ray]
Toy Story 3 [Blu-ray]
"OK, so now I'm not sure which movie I like better, this or How to Train Your Dragon.  Both are pretty darn swell.  But this one has the evil monkey and the creepy baby and Buzz in Spanish mode...hmmm."
Let Me In [Blu-ray]
Let Me In [Blu-ray]
"While not entirely a necessary film, (since it's a remake of one of the best vampire movies of all time), Let Me In manages to be almost as good as Let the Right One In."
Shutter Island
Shutter Island
"An amazing accomplishment in that it holds very few surprises, yet keeps you engaged to the end.  I'm still trying to wrap my head around why I like this so much."
Inception (Blu-ray)
Inception (Blu-ray)
"Far and above what I expected, a mindbending heist movie of a much higher caliber than most other Summer blockbusters.  Will most likely demand multiple viewings to absorb all the details."
Kick-Ass (Three-Disc Blu-ray/DVD Combo + Digital Copy)
Kick-Ass (Three-Disc Blu-ray/DVD Combo + Digital Copy)
"An amazingly fun movie that I hope we get to see more of.  It didn't exactly set the box office on fire so, I guess we'll have to wait until it hits home video to see where that stands."
Mother [Blu-ray]
Mother [Blu-ray]
"Absolutely stunning filmmaking from Joon-ho Bong, the director of Memories of Murder and The Host.  But the real story is the devastating performance of Hye-ja Kim.  Hey, Academy Awards, make sure you reserve a nomination for this talented lady!"
The Horseman
The Horseman
"This movie was released in 2008 but it's just now making it stateside via a DVD release.  The Horseman is one of the very best revenge flicks of this new century.  Brutal and moving at the same time.  Peter Marshall as the distraught dad is absolutely riveting.  A must see!"
The American [Blu-ray]
The American [Blu-ray]
"Just a flat out great movie, with one of the loneliest characters I've ever seen in a film."
The Good, the Bad, the Weird [Blu-ray]
The Good, the Bad, the Weird [Blu-ray]
"This just got released here in the states and therefore it's going on the list.  This movie is amazing!  A Martial Arts/Western hybrid that has to be seen to be believed."
The Town [Blu-ray]
The Town [Blu-ray]
"Affleck as a director is now 2 for 2.  This is a great, gritty crime drama.  Good stuff."
The Square
The Square
"I'm not sure why there's still a delay with foreign releases hitting American shelves in 2010, but since I just saw this two year old film today I'm putting it on the list.  Because it is friggin' amazing!  Australian Noir done right."
The Disappearance of Alice Creed [Blu-ray]
The Disappearance of Alice Creed [Blu-ray]
"Quite an engaging and tense film, which is an amazing feat considering it only has three characters."
The A-Team
The A-Team
"Amazingly enough this movie was balls to the wall fun.  Sharlto Copely nails the role of Howlin' Mad Murdoch and everybody else shows up as well.  Too many people missed out on the fun of this film."
The Crazies
The Crazies
"Generally I'm opposed to the notion of Horror remakes but every once in awhile we get a good one.  This is a really good one."
Daybreakers [Blu-ray]
Daybreakers [Blu-ray]
"Really fun, really nasty vampire film."
Harry Brown [Blu-ray]
Harry Brown [Blu-ray]
"Michael Caine never ceases to amaze.  This revenge tale has some pretty shocking violence and unnerves when you realize that yes, this stuff really does happen."
Splice
Splice
"A very interesting Sci-Fi film with really good creature design.  I'm just amazed this film got a wide release."
Chloe
Chloe
"If you like steamy erotic thrillers (and who doesn't) Chloe is definitely one of them.  Amanda Seyfried is beyond gorgeous."
From Paris with Love
From Paris with Love
"This movie is a blast from start to finish.  John Travolta's character (you read that right) Charlie Wax is my favorite movie character so far of 2010.  What a great, fun movie!"
The Wolfman (2010) - Unrated Director's Cut [Blu-ray]
The Wolfman (2010) - Unrated Director's Cut [Blu-ray]
"I thought this Universal throwback was great, although it turned out to be more about Anthony Hopkins.  I can't wait to see the extra footage.  This is a definite new Halloween tradition."
Red (Movie-Only Edition) [Blu-ray]
Red (Movie-Only Edition) [Blu-ray]
"Fun as heck.  Malkovich and Mirren steal the show."
Iron Man 2 (Two-Disc Special Edition)
Iron Man 2 (Two-Disc Special Edition)
"While definitely a lesser film than the first it had enough stuff to keep me happy.  Also, I really liked Black Widow.  A lot."
Suck [Blu-ray]
Suck [Blu-ray]
"As much as I hate the over saturation of vampires nowadays this movie does vampires extremely right.  One of the more fun movies I saw this year."
Hot Tub Time Machine (Unrated) [Blu-ray]
Hot Tub Time Machine (Unrated) [Blu-ray]
"This was funny as heck, and by heck I mean hell.  Seriously though, funny stuff.  I laughed."
Piranha [Blu-ray 3D]
Piranha [Blu-ray 3D]
"Unfortunately presented in unnecessary "3D", this movie still manages to be one of the most fun and gory films of 2010.  If you can see it without the "3D" gimmick do so."
Ondine [Blu-ray]
Ondine [Blu-ray]
"A great little movie."
Youth in Revolt
Youth in Revolt
"This is the first time I've seen Michael Cera really show range and this bodes well for the upcoming Scott Pilgrim movie.  This movie is hilarious!"
Parasomnia
Parasomnia
"This is only for fans of wacky, over the top messed up Horror.  If you can handle Fulci or Bava this is pretty solid stuff."
The Last Exorcism
The Last Exorcism
"While I'm not entirely a fan of the docu-Horror film this one really takes it to new levels.  I had a lot of fun watching it."
Tamara Drewe [Blu-ray]
Tamara Drewe [Blu-ray]
"I really liked this movie.  I really like Gemma Arterton too, so there's that."
Middle Men [Blu-ray]
Middle Men [Blu-ray]
"This was really good and not just about porn."
