1. The Kids Are Alright
A perfect title for a perfect film: truly heartbreaking and heartwarming. Also, hilarious.
2. Toy Story 3
Again: generation-defining, animated prison breakout movie with babydoll Leatherface.
3. The Social Network
Aaron Sorkin, David Fincher, Jesse Eisenberg: the dream team, the dream movie.
4. The King's Speech (please ignore clip if seeing film in the next month)
An extremely-likable film of personal triumph: never bores, always entertains.
5. 127 Hours
An instantly enthralling movie that works the material like a high-class commercial.
And that's all folks. Here's to another great year.
