My Top, umm, 12 Movies of 2010


Yeah, so, I’ve only seen 12 new movies this year, so this shouldn’t be too hard.

  1. Scott Pilgrim vs. The World
  2. Toy Story 3
  3. Inception
  4. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
  5. Kick-Ass
  6. The People vs. George Lucas
  7. Micmacs
  8. The Runaways
  9. Iron Man 2
  10. How to Train Your Dragon
  11. Freakomonics
  12. Hot Tub Time Machine

So, yeah, “Scott Pilgrim vs. The World” was my favorite movie this year. You wanna make something of it? I fuckin’ loved that movie. I thought it was visually cool and super hilarious. I haven’t seen another movie like it … ever.

"Hey, did you hear that Sonia picked us as her favorite movie of the year?" "Whatever."

I would like to point out that “Hot Tub Time Machine” is the worst new movie I saw this year. If I saw 13 new movies this year, but still made a top 12 list, it would not have made the cut. My sister, however, thinks “Hot Tub Time Machine” is the funniest movie since “Pineapple Express” … another movie I didn’t think was very good.

Obviously, as a self-proclaimed movie nerd the fact that I have seen only 12 new movies this year is pretty damn shameful. BUT, in my defense, I was kinda busy this year kicking cancer’s ass and planning a wedding. I have several New Year’s resolutions for 2011, including eat crappy, exercise less, start smoking and see more movies.

I am planning on seeing a few more before the year is over. Mighty, mighty good man David is all about the new “Tron” movie. End of line. And, I am aching to see “True Grit,” which includes two of my favorite things: westerns and the Coen Brothers. Both movies star The Dude, and we abide.

The above list represents the 12 new movies I saw this year. For the record, I did see a lot of other movies. I saw several classic films, including “Singin’ in the Rain,” a few Marx Brothers movies and countless silent films starring Charlie Chaplin, Harold Lloyd and Buster Keaton. So there.

I'm a writer/podcaster/mother/goober in San Francisco who likes to drink beer, shop, laugh and make other people laugh, watch old movies, feed my unhealthy obsession with pop culture, kick breast cancer's ass, go on adventures with my mighty, mighty good man David and my awesome autistic son, Calvin, wear orange and root for the San Francisco Giants, participate in general jackass-ery, talk about TV, eavesdrop on strangers' conversations, make nerdy “Star Wars” and “Simpsons” references, and post personal things about myself on the web for all to read, which makes me some sort of literary exhibitionist.

  1. I just realized that your list of 12 movies doesn’t even mean movies seen in a theater. For shame.
