DAMN but this was a GREAT year for film.  I saw a whole bunch of really enjoyable, well-put together movies, and I thought that in general, there weren't very many poor showings.  That said, here's what I thought truly blew me away.

10. Adventureland
9. The Soloist
8. Up in the Air
7. Taken
6. Up
5. District 9
4. Where the Wild Things Are
3. Coraline
2. Fantastic Mr. Fox
1. Star Trek

I stand by putting Star Trek in my number one slot, and I'll tell you why.  Not only did I enjoy watching it more than any other film this year (and more than most films in a long time), but I thought the acting was fabulous, the story was fun, and it looked great.  Re-view-ability is pretty important to me, and Star Trek has it in spades.  But I also thought it went beyond the normal summer popcorn fair - it not only revived a classic canon, but breathed new life into it.  The pacing was excellent and the script was fun (also pretty witty).  It wasn't perfect, but hardly any film really is.
