Worst Films of 2010

Worst Films of 2010

Maybe I have way too much time on my hands, but it’s always been my motto as a film critic to give every movie its fair chance to impress me. When the year comes to an end, I want to be able to step back and take in all the good with the bad. Most of the time, when I bring up the worst movies I’ve seen in any given year to a fellow critic I’ll get responses like “You sat through that?” or “Eh, I thought I’d skip that one,” which is perfectly fine. There are tons of movies that come out every year and no one has time to see everything that hits theaters. But I still try.

Best 10 in ’10

Best 10 in ’10

Let’s start with a disclaimer: This year I have managed to see 195 films, but have not been able to see everything I would like to see to call this list “official.” Hopefully, in the next month or so, the final films I am waiting for will hit San Antonio and I can update this list (if need be). The films I am still waiting to see are: “Another Year,” “Biutiful,” and “Blue Valentine.” So, without further ado, here are the 10 Best Films I have seen in 2010 and some honorable mentions…

Catching Up on CineStrays

Catching Up on CineStrays

If you didn’t notice, back somewhere in the summer I fell behind with the section on the site called “CineStrays.” It’s the section where I hoped to write caption reviews of the films that did not screen for film critics. In case you didn’t know, not every movie is made available to critics prior to the release date. Sometimes studios hold movies back to keep negative reviews from showing up on the morning of opening day. Other times, the studio won’t screen a film because there is a limited release (and usually in this case San Antonio is one of the last major cities to open the film).

Thanks to everyone who participated in the “Babies” contest for free tickets to see the documentary last week.

Mario Moreno (AKA “Cantinflas”), who Charlie Chaplin once named “The Funniest Man in the World,” created a simple yet universal character which has made young and old laugh throughout the years.

Oscar Nomination Reactions

Oscar Nomination Reactions

Like I do every February, I was up early this morning to hear the announcement of the nominees for this year’s Academy Awards. I’m a big dork when it comes to these things and love keeping track of all the best movies of the year and try to predict who will be nominated. The more important predictions will come later this month when I make my picks on who will actual win the coveted Oscar, but until then check out below to see how I fared this year and what I thought about the nominations.

Golden Globes Afterthoughts

Golden Globes Afterthoughts

I really don’t put too much emphasis on the Golden Globe Awards. I see them more like the junior varsity of awards show when compared to something like the Oscars.

CineSnob’s Best Films of the Decade (2000-2009)

CineSnob’s Best Films of the Decade (2000-2009)

This is my very first “Best Films of the Decade” list, so I was excited to look back and think about everything I saw over the last 10 years. The first time I sat down and wrote a film review was actually in 2000 when I was a skinny 20-year-old journalism student writing for my college paper. Nine years later, I’m still going strong.

The year has come to an end and it’s finally time to unveil the top 10 films that had the most profound effect on me as a movie critic. This year, I’ve seen over 165 films at the theater. During some, I wished there was an ejection button on my seat. During others, I hoped the movie would never end. Without further ado, here are my picks for the best films of the year and a few honorable mentions.
