The original 2010 Top Ten List was the very first article I posted on this site. So it’ll always be a special year for me. It was the year I really started taking movies (and watching new movies) seriously, and was the first time I really was prepared to pick my favorites for a given year because I watched the majority of stuff that came out.
Looking at the list for 2010 as it stands now… most of it’s the same. Which I like. I like knowing that my favorite films then are largely still my favorite films now. And the changes that were made were either minor or were things that were always gonna happen when time passed. Also, looking at this year, I’m fairly confident 90% of this list will remain as top ten films in perpetuity. It’s a real strong year at the top, and most of those top films are indisputable. (more…)
I’m in the middle of revisiting the last few years of top ten lists.
I won’t do all of them, don’t you worry. I’m just doing the ones that I made since the blog started.
Well — technically I made all of them since the blog started. But I’m talking about the top ten lists I made for specific years and not for decades. The ones where I ranked stuff specifically and did it with less than a few weeks of time to think about it. Which are 2010, 2011 and 2012. Everything else I’ve had lots of time to sit with and decide my opinion on. So those I don’t need to update. These — these will be interesting.
I’ve updated my 2012 list and 2011 lists, and today is 2010. The thing about this one is that I didn’t really rank anything outside the top ten that year. I just sort of threw in a quasi-tier two thing that wasn’t well-thought out at all. So now I’m gonna update that shit for real.
Here’s my (REMIXED) Top Ten list for 2010: (more…)
