If you like movies and don’t listen to Filmspotting podcast, I cannot help you. But if you like year’s end, year’s middle and year’s sometime-in-between top-10 lists and top-5 lists, and still don’t know their podcast, bury yourself. Or better, go to the site and indulge in the last years’ lists about anything and everything related to movies. Best taboo relationship movies. Best Halloween entertainment movies. Best first date movies, etc. Now to celebrate the end of the year and the decade, here are the moderators Adam and Matty’s year’s top 10 movies, and also guest commentator Michael Phillips of Chicago newspaper and “At the Movies” fame. I marked those I watched:

Adam
1. Inglourious Basterds (good entertainment)
2. Humpday (must see)
3. An Education (must see)
4. The Hurt Locker (really gripping)
5. A Serious Man (must see, if only out of Coen habit)
6. Up in the Air (must see, if only for the man crush)
7. Summer Hours (never heard)
8. Brothers (why should I see that again?)
9. The White Ribbon (excellent – my movie of the year)
10.Where the Wild Things Are (looks good, will see soon)

Michael Phillips
1. Up (impressive – but slightly straightforward in the 2nd half)
2. Where the Wild Things Are (looks good, will see soon)
3. Waltz with Bashir (hmmm… yes, but maybe it’s only form over function)
4. Of Time and the City (so much want to see this)
5. The Hurt Locker (really gripping)
6. A Serious Man (must see, if only out of Coen habit)
7. In the Loop (really hilarious film based on a really really hilarious tv show with one of the best villains ever)
8. Sugar (what?)
9. Me and Orson Welles (not sure)
10.A Single Man (where did I hear that before?)

Matty
1. Inglourious Basterds (good entertainment)
2. An Education (must see)
3. The Hurt Locker (really gripping)
4. A Serious Man (must see, if only out of Coen habit)
5. Brothers (why should I see that again?)
6. Sugar (what? another mention? need to research…)
7. Treeless Mountain (never heard…)
8. Up in the Air (must see, if only for the man crush)
9. O’Horten (lovely, and gets the shrewd Scandinavian bonus prize)
10.Summer Hours (never heard)
