Last year I saw…

Movie season is here!  I am counting down the days till the Oscars!  I watch a lot of movies through Netflix, and as I was going through my Queue yesterday, I thought it might be fun to put together this list of my favorite movies watched in 2010.  They didn’t all come out in 2010, but that is when I happened to view them:)

Inception.  Loved the men’s clothes, and whole look and feel of this movie.

The Town.  This one surprised me because I haven’t been liking Ben Affleck for awhile, but actually really liked him in this.  It also made me root for the bad guys which is always interesting.

Inglorious Basterds.  This was another that surprised me – you just never know with a Tarantino film, but I so so so enjoyed the score/soundtrack, the set design, costume design, dialogue, Direction, ect….

Best Worst Movie.  This is a documentary about THE best worst movie – Troll 2.  It was hilarious, and just as good as the movie itself.

Coco before Chanel.  This movie was beautiful and inspiring.  I was sad when it was over.

The Fighter.  Pretty much any movie starring Christian Bale is worth watching to me, but I particularly loved this one.  I am so happy that he won the Golden Globe, and that he is nominated for an Oscar – he better win!

The Science of Sleep.  Creative, unique, humorous, and a visual feast for the eyes.

Don’t tell Mom the babysitter’s dead.  I actually first saw this movie when I was 10, but watched it again a few months ago.  I can honestly say that the theme of fashion throughout the movie shaped my outlook on fashion today.  You never know where inspiration will come from.

The Hurt Locker.  We did one of our first Etsy Picks on this movie, and I still love to look at it.  Thrilling, sad, and beautifully shot.  I hope that everyone has seen this.

Never Let Me Go.  Unique storyline and intricate details in the set design.  I was shocked to see that this movie didn’t receive any Oscar noms.  Shame.

Bright Star.  We also did an Etsy Picks on this movie, and I think that it has become one of my all-time favorites.  Sooooooooo romantic and gorgeous!

I love movies so much!  I almost did a section of my least favorite movies of 2010, but decided to focus on the positive (man-oh-man, there were some BAD movies last year!).

Have you seen any of these movies?  Which one is your favorite?  Any really good movies in 2010 that I didn’t mention?
