It wouldn’t be the end of the year without at least one critic bemoaning the state of cinema as worse than ever. In 2010, however, the movie mainstream did seem to produce more misfires than usual, as Hollywood gradually figured out that post-conversion 3-D doesn’t work very well, M. Night Shyamalan shouldn’t be trusted with money, and Gemma Arterton isn’t going to become the next big thing just because you force her on us.
Notably, this year’s best list features more independents and international entries than usual.
On the other hand, if you see enough movies across the spectrum, there will almost always be more than enough for at least a 10 best list. I haven’t seen absolutely everything of significance, but have made a heroic effort to get to most of it—nonetheless, Yogi Bear or Marmaduke could be hidden masterpieces, and I will never know.
