Favourite Films Of 2010

The second part of my review of the year, my favourite films of the past year. Usually I do a top ten but this year I haven't got out to see enough films to make a top ten meaningful. So here are just five.

5. Killer Inside Me (June)

A fascinating but meandering film about a disturbed individual, that I needed a stiff drink to get over.

4. Girl With The Dragon Tattoo (April)

A grisly tale of murder, set amongst the cold Swedish winter, lightened somewhat by an upbeat ending. Not as good as the book obviously but a good effort and the best of the three films, which were all released this year.

3. Four Lions (May)

Chris Morris tackles terrorism. An excellent film, entertaining, well written, thought provoking, very well performed and yes, funny.

2. Sex n Drugs n Rock n Roll (February)

A biopic of the late Ian Dury. An excellent and playful film, just like its subject matter.

1. Kick-Ass (April)

A very odd choice for me to pick... a superhero spoof movie. However, this one is funny, very knowing, it has a plot, a sharp script and even character development. It also has Nicolas Cage and of course 'Hit Girl'.

  1. I didn't see any of your films from 5 - 2 last year, but I did see Kick Ass among others. It was also my favourite of the lot. So good. I kind of wish I had been a teenager when I saw it though...

  2. Oh I dunno. I think some of the humour is wasted on teenagers!
