Movies In Review: 2010

So many websites have posted their lists of best this and that of 2010. Here are a few of my favorite lists: Tarantino’s Favs, Let’s Go To The MoviesRoger Ebert’s Picks, Get Me Coffee – 2010 Top Movies. I’ll add a few others later.

After reading a few blog posts by others I decided to pull up to take inventory of all the movies released in 2010 that I saw last year. I also included whether or not I saw them in the theater or at home which for me can effect the opinion of the movie viewing experience.

Here is a list of what I saw last year:

A few of these movies I saw more than once for various reasons. Some I went to see because a group of people outvoted me in movie selection. I’m sure we’ve all experienced that a time or two.
