For my first post of the New Year, I'd actually like to look back to last, for a feature that went back yet further. I did a feature called You Aught to Know, which proves that I'm not great with titles, though I think it turned out rather well. Here's a link to the final post, complete with a listing of all participants.
That said, the first year of the new decade is completed. So what's the best of the 10's thus far? I have three in mind: "Inception," "The Social Network," and "True Grit." Also, I'm pretty keen on "Youth in Revolt," which has greatly impressed everyone I've talked to that actually bothered to see it. Easily the best Michael Cera film last year, and, yeah, I saw "Scott Pilgrim vs. the World." At this stage, it's a little too early for me to put together a top 10, as I haven't seen "127 Hours," "The King's Speech," and a number of others, though I doubt any of them will impress me as much as those above. I'm eager to hear what everyone else thinks about this decade's films thus far, from top picks to emerging trends or speculation. And if you're reading this on Facebook, please steer yourself to the site proper and post there.
