    Ten-Years-Later Match Cut Consensus - 2010

    Let's do a countdown of your favorite films from the year. Post a top 10 (IMDb dates) below. I'll count up the votes and give you a top 20-25 (depending on the statistical significance of the results).

    Points will be counted using a weighted system:

    1. - 10 pts
    2. - 8 pts
    3. - 7 pts
    4. - 6 pts
    5. - 5 pts
    6. - 4.5 pts
    7. - 4 pts
    8. - 3.5 pts
    9. - 3 pts
    10. - 2.5 pts

    (Weighted system used to give top films a boost, and to minimize the distinction between second tier films.)

  2. #2
    1. Copie conforme (Abbas Kiarostami)
    2. Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives (Apichatpong Weerasethakul)
    3. The Ghost Writer (Roman Polanski)
    4. Mistérios de Lisboa (Raúl Ruiz)
    5. Film socialisme (Jean-Luc Godard)
    6. Arrietty the Borrower (Yonebayashi Hiromasa)
    7. Greenberg (Noah Baumbach)
    8. Carlos (Olivier Assayas)
    9. Post Mortem (Pablo Larraín)
    10. Hereafter (Clint Eastwood)
    Just because...
    The Color Wheel (Alex Ross Perry, 2011) mild
    Argo (Ben Affleck, 2012) mild
    Impostors (Mark Rappaport, 1979) mild

    The last book I read was...

    I don't care much for this year. I don't know why I had Inception at #1:

    1. Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (Edgar Wright)
    2. Inception (Christopher Nolan)
    3. The Kids are Alright (Lisa Cholodenko)
    4. Exit Through the Gift Shop (Banksy)
    5. Another Year (Mike Leigh)
    6. Black Swan (Darren Aronofsky)
    7. Kick-Ass (Matthew Vaughn)
    8. Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives (Apichatpong Weerasethakul)
    9. The Social Network (David Fincher)
    10. Toy Story 3 (Lee Unkrich)

    EDIT: I've watched Scott Pilgrim three times so I moved it to #1. I don't think I'll ever re-watch the others.

    I think it's a rather good year, considering I didn't have room in my top ten for Les Amours imaginaires, Attenberg, O Estranho Caso de Angélica, Exit Through the Gift Shop, The Forgotten Space, Hahaha, Nostalgia de la luz, Le quattro volte, Rubber, and These Hammers Don't Hurt Us (any of which I'd be happy to watch again).

    Its always a bitch making a top list. For me when I really feel the gun to my head to pick, "rewatchability" becomes a big issue.
    Ditto. I was tempted to put Mistérios de Lisboa even higher on my list but I've only seen it once (it's four and a half hours long). By comparison, I've seen Copie conforme four times, Uncle Boonmee, The Ghost Writer, Film socialisme, Greenberg, and Hereafter three times, Arrietty the Borrower and Post Mortem twice, and both versions of Carlos once each.

    I really need to see The Ghost Writer again. I watched it once when it came out, blu has been on my shelf forever.
    Do you have a review of The American? Have we discussed this before? I know we don't agree on lots of films but that one seems like one that would be up your alley.

    I wrote about it on my blog when it came out. The short version is that I found the plot ridiculous with twists you can see coming a mile away and some very clunky dialogue.
