Best of 2010 - Part Three - Movies

Ah... who doesn't love a good movie??

In no particular order...

Holy. Cannoli. Best. Movie. Since. The. Matrix.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 1

If you haven't seen this yet... it's your loss.  See it on the big screen while you still can.

Valentine's Day

I love movies that twist multiple character story lines into one... this one surprised me. I liked it. 

Alice in Wonderland

I thought this movie was gorgeous.  Alice in Wonderland was one of my fav Disney cartoons growing up (I was weird... okay, am)--add Tim Burton and I'm ALL over it.

Iron Man 2 (Single-Disc Edition)

Robert. Downey. Junior.
Need I say more? Didn't think so.

I went into this with no expectations, and I absolutely loved it.  Jason Bateman did fabulous, Jeff Goldblum is a genius, and it's the best movie Jennifer Aniston has ever done.  I even got a little teary. 

Worth Mentioning:

The Twilight Saga: Eclipse (Two-Disc Special Edition)

So the Twilight Saga is far from the best made movies, but I am a girl, and we like our boys. :)

Leap Year

I was a little iffy about this one after seeing it in the theater, but I watched it again the other week, and it really is quite funny.  If you haven't seen it yet, watch it just for the sake of the brilliance that is Matthew Goode.  

Due Date Movie Robert Downey Jr Zack Galifianakis Poster Print - 24x36

Stupid? You bet.  Will it make you bust a gut with laughter? You bet.
Robert. Downey. Junior.

Crazy Heart

So I got the shivers (not in a good way) watching Jeff Bridges with Maggie G... but it was a pretty good movie.

Movies I Still Have to See:

Toy Story 3 How to Train Your Dragon (Single Disc Edition) Scott Pilgrim vs. the World

Despicable Me (Single-Disc Edition) The Other Guys Easy A

Anything else I miss this year that you recommend? 


  1. OMG, you will LOVE Toy Story 3!! Definitely one of my all time favorites. I also loved Despicable Me. I haven't seen Eclipse and think I need to rewatch Valentines Day.

    Don't waste your money on Love and Other Drugs...but it is a good one to rent if you want something mindless to curl up to ;)

  2. "Despicable Me" is SOOOOO funny!!!! Love your list, and I definitely agree with many of them (namely, HP and "Inception" - super good!). I thought "TRON" was also pretty awesome.

  3. inception was amazing!
    you NEED to rent scott pilgrim- yesterday!
    so funny! :)

  4. I would add TANGLED to your list. Definitely worth the time and money!! :)

  5. I am absolutely in love with INCEPTION. It's such, such a smart movie. :)

  6. I always love me some Matthew Goode!

  7. I just saw The Town with Ben Affleck and Jeremy Renner and it's awesome. True Grit is excellent as well.

  8. I say Holy Cannolis too! *high five*
    Dude I SO need to see Crazy Heart. And I LOVED Alice :) By the end, I wanted to live in the white castle.
