“Bit delayed on this, and its gonna be brief. Sorta now or never. Here’s the recap on what I saw at the theater last year, with a few thoughts on my favorites. In total, I saw 77 movies. That’s a few less than 2009. Couple reasons for that. For one, I wasnt so hardcore this summer since so much of my time was spent working on JCS. Also, I tried to avoid going to films I really wasnt all that interested in, just for the sake of going. I’ve got a pretty bad habit of that. Lastly, I think the selection really was a bit slimmer this year. There werent too many weekends that released more than I could watch during the week.
Anyways, here’s the rundown, not in any order. Oh, I should point out, as far as Im concerned with the blog, I count films towards the year in which I saw them, not their release date. For example, yes Avatar was 2009 but I saw it last January, so I call it 2010. Everything I saw last weekend, while it may have been released last year, they wont be considered until the next wrap up. Got it?

So lets see that’s (my counts might be slightly off) 77 films at 8 theaters including 12 3D films, 5 at the IMAX, 10 sequels, only 2 repeats (The Town and Shutter Island) and 3 films involving vampires. Here’s what I’d consider my top ten:
4-toy story 3d
6-a single man
7-how to train your dragon
9-prince of persia
Aaaand here’s the bottom of the pack. The sad part is I ended up buying (or plan to buy) 4-8.
2-Get him to the greek
3-Clash of the titans
7-Dinner for schmucks
So yeah bye 2010. Here’s hoping 2011 will be the one when I finally cross the 100 movie mark!
Edit 1-15-11HOLY \m/ I just realized I left Black Swan off the best list. It should be at number 2. FAIL!”
