Every year, I make predictions on which movies will be best, based on how good the writers are. Here's what I picked for 2010.
My top picks:
Worth a look:
How did I do? Not too well. I failed to pick my favorite film of 2010, Toy Story 3 by Michael Arndt. I did not like Michael Arndt's previous film, the well reviewed Little Miss Sunshine, but I loved Toy Story 3. I stand by my picks of Iron Man 2 and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part One. Two other films on my list, The Extraordinary Adventures of Adèle Blanc-Sec and The Tempest, never played in a nearby theater. The Tree of Life was pushed back to 2011.
If I had it to do over again, I'd move Inception and The Chronicles of Narnia: Voyage of the Dawn Treader into my top five list and drop entirely The Last Airbender and, under a new title, Nanny McPhee Returns. Turns out they were not worth a look after all.
In March, I'll let you know what looks good for 2011.
