At the end of every year, I usually find it not too hard to pick out my favorites, but this year I found it especially hard to narrow down. There have been many memorable movies (both in a good and bad way), many great ones, many truly awful ones, and a surprisingly many fantastically memorabe ones. Those that stood out stood out beautifully, each in their own unique way, and even the worst directors of all-time released a not-too-awful spoof called “Vampires Suck.” Things are kinda lookin up. That being said there were some epic disappointments too, and light of that statement let’s talk about “Toy Story 3,” the only Pixar offering this year, and yet this year was the first year in four years that I have not had a Pixar in my top ten. I was not epically disappointed by TS3, yet it did not strike the same chord with me as TS2 did, and half the plot felt rehashed, but it’s not going to go on my Disappointments list because it wasn’t disappointing enough, and the farewell it gave to the series was heartbreaking and beautiful. So I’m sad I can’t in good conscience put it on my Top 10, but it will always hold a special place in my heart. So forgive the delay, and enjoy my favorites and not-so-favorites of 2010. 🙂 Continue reading
