I was trying to go through all the movies that came out this year and make a favorites list but that turned real hard (that's what she said). So here are my top five of the year to the best of my memory. Somebody will probably name another movie and I will probably say that one deserved to be on the list by oh well. I'm not so smart and that's what you get when dealing with me.
5)True Grit - I never saw the original and I'm not much for westerns but this movie was pretty damn cool. Bridges is awesome in most everything he does and killin' outlaws is high on that list. Add in a "newcomer" like Hailee Steinfeld as the vengeance seeking Mattie Ross and you've got a winner.
4) Kick-Ass - Not much has to be said about this movie other than the title. This movie did just that. Aaron Johnson did it. McLovin' did it. Chloe Moretz really did it. And even Nic Cage did it. This movie was just awesome.
3) Scott Pilgrim vs. The World - I don't think any movie this year was as much fun as Scott Pilgrim. Start to finish, this was a blast. It should have done better in the theaters then it did because it really deserved it. If you haven't seen this one yet, do yourself a favor and go buy it. Not rent. Buy.
2) Inception - Everyone and their dog has seen this movie and everyone seems to have "their own" opinion on it but I don't think any movie this year made me think as hard as this one. Usually I don't like that but it really worked in this one. Great acting, great action and amazing visuals. This one should prove that Christopher Nolan is among the top filmmakers of this time.
1) The Town - A know some people that I recommended this film to didn't like it as much as I told them they would but I can sum up why this is my number one in one statement: Ben Affleck wrote, directed and starred in this and I would still watch it again. That's how simple it was for me. The movie blew me away the he blew me away. Every member of the cast was amazing and BEN AFFLECK WAS GREAT!!! That's the only reason I need.
Now tell me what movies I forgot and how silly I am for my number one pick (also, I never got to see movies like Black Swan or 127 Hours so those don't count to me)
