The Movies of 2010 (so far)

Rate this Entry
What can be said. I have been less than enthralled by the movies released thus far ... Not with standing, Shrek and Toy Story. Kick-Ass was an okay movie, but could have been so much more. Yes, it was an engaging movie and yes the violence was awesome. But when the movie is about the character Kick-Ass and I was more excited and entertained by the side story (Hit Girl) ... that's a problem. The next movie was Iron Man 2, this movie everyone was anticipating and in the end fell short. Just the same old same old and in the end it was enjoyable, but made me want way more. Clash of the Titans stunk on ice and sadly I have yet to see Robin Hood ... so maybe 2010 hasn't sucked as bad. But as more and more movies come out this year. It seems every damn one is pushing flash over substance. I'm aware that can be said for the past 20 years of filmmaking, but since that time we've had flashes of brilliance. Its just this year the problems are more apparent.

    All the good, talented people are working in TV now. Forty, thirty, twenty years ago, the people who made Mad Men and The Wire would be working in movies. That's why movies are such a shitpile nowadays, with the exception of Pixar and whoever was actually making good movies forty, thirty, twenty years ago.

    I have been to the movies less this year than in any other year I can remember after age 10 or so.

    Seems like 100% of what you've seen was written for 12-year-olds.

    It's cool, though. I'm watching a shitload of Doctor Who today.

    Maybe if you went to see some films with budgets under $100,000,000 you wouldn't be so disappointed. This year has been fantastic and will continue to be with the likes of Winters Bone, The Killer Inside Me, Hesher, Red Hill, Enter the Void, Animal Kingdom, Obsolidia, Possessed, Sympathy for Delicious, HOWL, etc.

    The best movies I've seen this year have been direct to DVD movies. Dolan's Cadillac as an example, even though that movie came out late last year.
