Stephen King Picks His Top 10 of 2010 Already - Let Me In is #1!
It's a yearly tradition (see last year's) for legendary author Stephen King to publish his always strange yet fantastic list of favorite films from the past year, mostly because he chooses some very peculiar films, 2010 being no different. King just published his list in the latest ssue of Entertainment Weekly and SlashFilm got the scoop on what he chose. As expected, it's a very odd list, yet I'm going to have defend him on some of his choices - especially Matt Reeves' Let Me In being #1. I loved that movie and thought it was indeed a perfect counterpart to the Swedish version. Anyway, you can find the rest of King's 2010 list below, so check it out!
10. Green Zone
9. Jackass 3D
4. The Social Network
2. The Town
1. Let Me In
List From EW
One movie that really sticks out is obviously Takers - uh did anyone even see that movie? He explains: "This satisfyingly complex cops-'n'-robbers movie features great performances… and the armored-car heist is the best action sequence I've seen this year." Wow - anyone agree with him? Additionally, I'm very happy to see Splice and Monsters, but what about Jackass 3D? Now I know it's supposed to be an awesome use of 3D, but this just seems like random filler. Did he not see other amazing movies this year like The King's Speech or Black Swan? Other comments he makes are about The Social Network: "succeeds where Michael Douglas' Wall Street sequel fails" and The Town: "bad title, fantastic movie… a strangely intimate film." Thoughts?
