I have a terrible memory for what films I've seen in a given year, haha. So for ease of making this list i've used this
to pick my faves. In alphabetical order:
Buried - Great performance and tense as hell, thrilled me to the end.
Disappearance of Alice Creed, The - Fun thriller with a great twisty plotline.
Exit Through the Gift Shop - My pick of the year's documentaries, fascinating and thought provoking.
Inception - What more can be said, for me it drags in the final third but by then the visuals, sci-fi plot and insane action had me hooked.
Jackass 3D - Most fun I've had in a cinema, possibly ever.
Kick-Ass - Ran out to buy it on blu-ray on the day of release. Great music, comedy and action.
Monsters - Transcends it's 'creature feature' premise and becomes a thing of beauty.
Scott Pilgrim vs. the World - Most unique film of the year. At once a celebration and a biting satire of youth culture.
Social Network, The - Again, what more can be said? Incredible performances, script and direction. The soundtrack is phenominal too.
Toy Story 3 - Battling The Incredibles in my head for best Pixar movie. From a studio that only releases films of quality, this is top of the pile.
Honourable Mentions - Other movies that stick out in my memory from 2010.
