Best Movies of 2010

Over the course of 2010, we've reviewed quite a large selection of films. We did it partly for you, and partly for us, because we love good cinema, and we love to tear down bad cinema. Mystery Science Theater 3000 taught us that it's okay to occasionally watch something terrible, but it's important to let people know it's terrible so they can decide whether or not they want to get the same experience. The same can be said for the great movies we watch. Here are the best of the best movies we reviewed in 2010, and the worst of the worst.

Best Movie of 2010: Scott Pilgrim vs. The World --- Separate Blu-Ray Review

The directing in this film is off the charts, and the references throughout the film have earned it an irreplaceable spot in our hearts. It didn't earn 5 *'s upon my initial review, marred by a somewhat confusing ending, but upon re-watching it's flaws are now much less noticeable. This is a film that not only I keep in my collection, but put in as visible a location as possible so everyone knows I own it.

Runner Up: Mystery Team

A movie that as soon as we bought it, we watched it repetitively for the following few days. Each of those re-watch days, we had one more person than the last watching-session watching with us to share the experience. A very under-rated, lesser known gem that needs to be seen by everyone. The movie moved us to such a degree, it was also the only time we attempted a video-trailer-review.

Honorable Mentions: Inception, Whip It,  and Kick-Ass.

Worst Movie of 2010: Mega Shark Versus Giant Octopus

My first introduction to production studio, The Asylum. So. Much. Rage.

Runner Up: Extreme Movie

You would think since the title ends with "Movie" it would be made by the anti-Christs of cinema, Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer (Date Movie, Epic Movie, Disaster Movie, etc.), but it's a separate entity of its own. Apparently Silent Movie, Scary Movie 1 and Scary Movie 2 will continue their legacy as the only good films with titles ending in Movie. Beware of this frightening hydra of crappy skits on your quest to see every Michael Cera film.
