1. Inception – Blockbuster and a mindfuck.

2. The Social Network – Loved the combo of Fincher direction + Sorkin script.

3. True Grit – Loved it like I do almost all Coen Brothers movies.

4. Black Swan – INTENSE.

5. Exit Through the Gift Shop – Kinda like Inception, you don’t know exactly what’s going on here.

6. Scott Pilgrim vs. The World

7. Toy Story 3

8. The Town – Best gunfighting scenes since Heat.

9. Kick-Ass

10. The Kids are Alright/Greenberg – Didn’t love either, but also didn’t see a lot of movies this year

The Coen Brothers remake of the 1969 John Wayne classic opens December 25. Official synopsis:

Fourteen-year-old Mattie Ross’s (Hailee Steinfeld) father has been shot in cold blood by the coward Tom Chaney (Josh Brolin), and she is determined to bring him to justice. Enlisting the help of a trigger-happy, drunken U.S. Marshal, Rooster Cogburn (Jeff Bridges), she sets out with him — over his objections — to hunt down Chaney. Her father’s blood demands that she pursue the criminal into Indian territory and find him before a Texas Ranger named LeBoeuf (Matt Damon) catches him and brings him back to Texas for the murder of another man.
