110 Greatest Films 1

The Reel Deal


Tyler Malone Counts Them Down

Film Insight by Tyler Malone

February 2011

The Oscars are just around the corner and so the questions begin: What do you think should win? What do you think will win? What are you pissed wasn’t nominated? Have you seen most of the nominated films and performances? How many movies did you see that were released in 2010?

I myself watched exactly 110 movies that were released in 2010. Rather than do what most critics do and just make my Top 10 of 2010, I’ve decided to make my Top 110 (as in: list them all from best to worst) and post it here for your viewing pleasure. Obviously ranking these films in such an arrangement isn’t an exact science, as my impressions of these films continue to change over time, but there is an approximate order in which they can be placed. So, without further ado, here is the list I’ve compiled of all 110 films I saw this year, ranked from best to worst, rated from five reels to zero reels and listed from Blue Valentine to The Last Airbender:
