So not all of these films came out this year, but I did see them in 2010.
The Ghost Writer (starring Ewan McGregor)
I was wowed while watching it and I'm still wowed just thinking about it. In fact, I think I'm going to place it in my Netflix queue after writing this post.
Inception (starring Leonardo DiCaprio)
Mind blowing, visually stunning, superbly acted...a puzzle within a puzzle within a puzzle (courtesy of puzzlemaster/director Christopher Nolan).
Miss Marples (starring Margaret Rutherford)
I read a handful of Agatha Christie novels this year and did some research about film versions. I discovered a series of Miss Marple films from the early sixties and was completely charmed. Rutherford IS Miss Jane Marple and she's a delight to watch. I wish they'd made more.
(Murder, She Said, Murder at the Gallop, Murder Most Foul, Murder Ahoy!)
The Other Guys
I loved the sendup of cop buddy movies and I loved Mark Wahlberg in a comedy. The movie theater's sound system stopped working about 3/4 of the way into the movie. I didn't get to see the ending, but this still made my list.
Toy Story 3
Just under the wire. G gave me this for Christmas and we watched it this week. It's always fun to see these characters again, it's a fantastic story, and it made me cry like a baby. Pixar can do no wrong.
