Top 5 movies of the year by Colin and Nick

Colin's top 5

5:   The Social Network

One of the main reasons I liked the social network so much is because of how bad I thought a movie about facebook would be, especially with Justin Timberlake. Then the great reviews came in, so I went to see it and was pretty amazed, great dialogue, cinematography ( expected from david fincher ), acting ( even from justin timberlake) and even the plot kept me interested till the end

4:         Toy Story 3

Not much to say, Im not much of an animated movie fan but I always liked the first toy story as a kid and this one didnt disappoint.

3:    Inception

Though it wasnt perfect, I really enjoyed Inception because of how epic it felt. This is really what cinema should feel like. It was like seeing The Matrix for the first time in theaters except for a stronger cast yet weaker effects and story

2:    Shutter Island

I really loved this movie and view it as one of Scorsese's best for so many reasons, yes the twist was easy to guess but that was the point of the movie, everything came together so well. Great direction, great acting by the whole cast, even the minor characters were very well acted, great music and cinematography make this a must-watch.

1:     Black Swan

Ive always loved Aronofskys work since I watched requiem for a dream and Pi, so I was really anticipating this movie and to my surprise It was even better than I would have thought. Portman gives the performance of the year, the camera work is absolutely stunning and it has the best score of the year.

Almost made the list : True grit, 127 hours, Let me in, How to train your dragon, Kick-ass

Nick's top 5

5:       Machete

Machete, mystery,suspense,action, adventure and using someones guts as a rope. Need I say more?

4:   Shutter island

Enticing and engaging are words you can use to describe this movie, but i'll only use one, epic. This movie blew my mind on so many levels I was literally foaming at the mouth.

3:   Black Swan

This movie was fantastic on many levels, I dont think another movie has done a better job of showing the absolute best and worst in a single person as well as this one did.

2:     Social Network

The social Network was a great movie, from the first scene I was pulled into the movie and felt as if I were actually there. I dont know how much of the story was true but Jesse Eisenbergs performance makes it worth seeing in any case.

1:    Inception

Inception was definitely my favorite movie of the year for so many reasons. First of all the cast was really good, the music fit the movie perfectly and the special effects were insane, most of all because of how little of it was done by computer.

Almost made the list: True grit, daybreakers, the fighter, scott pilgrim

Great list! Inception definitely deserves the number one slot. I still have yet to see The Social Network, though. I better get on that!
