Judge if you must, but I'm a fan of the Harry Potter books and movies. This film did not disappoint. It was true to the book and set up the end of the series well.
Proof you don't have to really understand a movie to enjoy it. (See also, The Matrix.)
Despite a plot that went in a direction I really hoped it wouldn't, this movie won me over. Annette Bening was brilliant - Oscar worthy if you ask me.
An action movie done right. Well done, Mr. Affleck.
A few movies I haven't had the chance to see yet, but am hopeful would make a best of list: The Social Network, Black Swan, The King's Speech, and Blue Valentine.
Because 2010 really was a year for crappy movies, here are a few that really stood out as the worst of the worst for me:
Even Zac Effron's abs couldn't save this stinker.
Why did I even see this?!?!
Sex and the City 2. By far the most disappointing movie of the year. Hello - it's called Sex and The City. First mistake, taking it out of the city. Second mistake, everything that followed.
A few more dishonorable mentions: Dear John, Letters to Juliet, Leap Year, Valentine's Day and The Bounty Hunter.
After looking at my list of crappy movies, I can only think that I brought this upon myself. With the exception of SATC 2, I'm pretty sure all of these movies had donkey trash written all over them. Still, they stunk. Perhaps the plethora of crap movies I've seen this year can't be blamed entirely on Hollywood...
*It could probably go without saying, but a movie snob I am not. I like to be entertained. Thought provoking and insightful are good, but so is funny.
