Top 10 Movies of 2010

Barika Taheer Edwards’ top picks for the best films of 2010. The top five were mentioned on-air (Best of 2010 Show 1/4)

10. Despicable Me

9.  Repo Man

8. Inception

7. The Town

At the time of writing this list. I was saddened to find out that Pete Postlethwaite has passed away. He was a number of films this year, including Inception (No. 8). He was a gem in this film as well as No. 8. The Town is a wonderful heist movie with heart and culture. Ben Affleck has proven himself as a director and I am sure the jokes about Matt Damon really writing Good Will Hunting have disappeared. Best thing about The Town is the character James Coughlin who is unstable, angry man  that has served time while Doug MacRay (Affleck) stayed in sun.  Jeremy Renner  (James Coughlin) who literally looks like a bulldog made you feel life that the other characters had to step lightly about.

6. Black Swan

5. For Color Girls

4. Social Network

3. Fair Game

2. How to Train Your Dragon

1. King’s Speech

What I am looking forward to in 2011

One director’s work has me doing flips. He is a Hollywood director who has only done 7 films in the last 38 years. 7, not 20, not 50, 7!

Top TV Pick for 2010
