Re: The 2010 Rank 'Em As You See 'Em Thread

The only 3 movies I have interest in but haven't seen are Black Swan, True Grit and Tron. I expect True Grit to be my favorites since I love the Coen's so much and I've read tons of good stuff about it. Here is my list in no particular order, also this is the worst year for movies since I've been alive.

I Saw The Devil (Korean, best serial killer film since Se7en)
Inception
The Social Network
Kick-Ass
Shutter Island
L'instinct de Mort (Mesrine: Killer Instinct)
L'ennemi Public N1 (Mesrine: Public Enemy #1)
Jackass 3D
The Town
Toy Story 3 (Good but overrated, in a good year of films this would have fallen towards the middle IMO)
Book of Eli (I'm sure some will disagree but I think it is pretty solid action film

I liked Salt, Hot Tub Time Machine and that really is all I can remember. I've read over the lists above and I really didn't like anything else. What a horrible year. Next year already looks better. I cannot wait for Cowboys and Aliens.
