Default Favorite Movies of 2010

It was a close battle between Inception and Social Network but Inception won out by a handful of votes. Though Inception was released in the summer, apparently it did something right to so resonate in audience's minds at the end of the year.

I'm surprised Shutter Island didn't garner more votes but even I thought it was released last year since it came out so early this year in February. Some more surprises are True Grit placing at the bottom but it was released late in December. In comparison, Black Swan was released a couple of weeks before and ranks third. I imagine when the Academy nominations roll around True Grit will place higher. The biggest surprise of all is The Fighter receiving only one vote. I've heard lots of good things about it but apparently people don't love it enough to mark it as a favorite.

It's heartening to see such a diverse list of movies at the top of the list with the blockbuster in Inception, the fall drama Social Network and indies like Winter's Bone. What stands out is that done deal members' favorite movies are both thought-provoking and entertaining.

Thanks to all who voted!

127 Hours
Inception
Social Network
The Other Guys
Book of Eli
The Crazies
The Town

And even though The Good, The Bad and The Weird was not released this year, it did hit the states a few months ago and this is the year I saw it, so I'm counting it.

Winter's Bone
The Social Network
Inception

Everyone who has not seen Winter's Bone yet needs to drop what they are doing and go watch it NOW. You can find it on Netflix. Utterly fantastic.

You know when I saw the thread title I had to think what movies I had seen this year... honestly i couldn't remember any

and after looking through those you've offered so far i see why... there's nothing 'stand out' there.

No Matrix, no, country for old men, no kill bill (1), certainly no usual suspects or 7even, not even a big dumb actioner like ID or Armageddon. the closest we got was inception and by my lofty standards it failed to hit the mark

Roll on 2011

I haven't seen quite a few movies I've been meaning to, though. So I might have to add a few at some point.

can't believe I forgot about Shutter Island. goes to show how easy it is to forget the ones earlier in the year. heard good things about Easy A but not sure if it's really on my to see list. maybe it was the report in college about the scarlet letter i had to do.
