Why not...worst of 2010

Why not do a worst list?  Since I posted earlier today about my faves in 2010 I might as well post a worst list as well.  Granted, I don't see as many bad movies a year as I used to (some of you will argue against this, but it is the honest to god truth) but I sure saw some stinkers this year.  So let's dig in to the crap that was released in 2010!

My picks for best of 2010

Many people have written blogs and articles about their favorite movies and performances so this isn't something very new. It actually is to me, I think. I don't know if I have ever actually sat down and pulled together a list of greatness from any given year. Since I have recently converted this blog to my love of film, I suppose it is about time I do so.

The Rite isn't possesed with goodness...

Anthony Hopkins made his career playing one of the most menacing and terrifying characters in movie history. As Dr. Hannibal Lecter he tore up the screen with a performance that still sends a chill down my spine. I have to say I was excited to go see The Rite because Hopkins plays bad so good. I walked away satisfied by his performance, but not much else.
