My Films of 2010

Filed under: Film — Tags: , — SFG @ 00:02

My annual tradition of posting all the films I’ve seen in the past 12 months rolls around once again.

I initially planned to systematically work my way through the BFI’s top 100 films, but after an abortive start to that I quickly realised that there were other films I’d much rather be watching, so I concentrated on those instead.

Highlights of the year included Transsiberian, Stalker, Kick-Ass and Sunshine Cleaning.
Lowlights were The Human Centipede , Paranormal Activity and Avatar.
Special mention this year goes to TRON : Legacy for possibly bridging the longest gap between original film and sequel in Hollywood history – I also enjoyed it very much, and Jackie Chan, for making so many enjoyable films.

I’d kinda also like to thank Film4 for showing the first ten Star Trek films back-to-back over the course of two nights.
That was a fun couple of evenings spent on Twiter whilst watching the films.

I seem to say this every year, but I’d like to see more science fiction films in 2011 than I did in 2010, though once again personal circumstances conspire against me in my quest to watch more films at the cinema, but we’ll see how that goes as the year moves along.

Happy New Year to everyone everywhere.

  1. You sat through an entire Carry On film?

  2. I grew up with Carry On films on the telly. Yes, they’re corny, they’re sexist, and the later ones are frankly rubbish, but they have a place in British cinema history.

    I’m hoping for a full season of Carry Ons on Film 4. The older ones rarely get a showing these days, and they were the better ones in my opinion.
