With the Golden Globes and Academy Awards a few months away, it’s that time of year again where every film critics association begins to name the year’s best. In fact, the Utah Film Critics Association will vote on December 22, 2010 and I’ll be posting my ballot and the results here at Andy at The Movies.com. The news yesterday was the American Film Institute had named their best movies of 2010. You can watch a video of AFI’s picks after the jump, but the list is as follows (with my grade off to the side):
- Black Swan (review forthcoming).
- The Fighter (review on 12/17).
- Inception (A).
- The Kids are All Right (review forthcoming).
- 127 Hours (review on 12/17).
- The Social Network (B+).
- The Town (B+).
- Toy Story 3 (B).
- True Grit (review on 12/22).
- Winter’s Bone (review forthcoming).
In other news, the Toronto Film Critics Association named its year’s best, giving The Social Network kudos for best picture. The New York Film Critic’s Circle, San Fransisco Film Critics Society, Los Angeles Film Critics Society and Boston Society of Film Critics all gave similar love to The Social Network. I liked the film, but I’m not sure it deserves a win. Since I’m always right, these Facebook-addicted nincompoops need to remove their smoldering berets of Chai-sipping, holier-than-thou stinkiness and go re-watch Inception. Unless I see something better in the next week and half, that’s my pick.
Anyway, I hate film critics. That is all I have to say.
What are your picks for best movie of 2010?
