The 10 Best Movies I Watched on Netflix in 2010 (and the worst)

I was just looking at my movie history in Netflix - which goes back for several years now - and decided to submit a list here of the best movies (and TV shows) I rented thru Netflix in 2010.  They didn't all come out in 2010, but that's when I watched them. Please enjoy.

01.  The King Of Kong: A Fistful Of Quarters
If you have not seen this one, you need to get it right now. It's a documentary about some guys that are competing for the world's record in Donkey Kong.  Sound ridiculous?

02.  Jennifer's Body
Totally my kind of movie.  :)  I loved it so much that I bought it.

03.  Hard Candy
Wow.  This one is really disturbing.  I don't want to give too much away about it, so I won't say anything.  Definitely worth seeing.  Stars Ellen Paige from Juno.

04.  They Call Me Trinity
My Dad would rent the 2 Trinity movies when my brothers and I were kids back in Stone Park, Illinois.  We'd rent movies from the Dominick's store on the corner of Mannheim and Lake Street.  Anyways, it's a spoof of the Italian Western films of the 1960s.

05.  American Movie
My brother recommended this one to me for quite a while and I finally got around to watching it this year.  It's a documentary about a guy making a low budget movie called Coven.  This one's from 1999 and is really good.

06.  Suck
I watched this one in my Horror Film Marathon back in October.  Check out my review here.

07.  District 9
Worth it just to hear the sound of the alien Christopher Johnson's voice.  This is a unique story about the sad encampment of some sick aliens.  Really good.

08.  Crazy Heart
Jeff Bridges is great as Bad Blake, a down-and-out country singer.  I like to describe this movie as a country version of The Wrestler.

09.  Zombieland
A zombie comedy starring Woody Harrelson, Emma Stone, Bill Murray and that guy from the Facebook movie.  I really enjoyed this one.

10.  The Hangover / Hot Tub Time Machine / Get Him To The Greek
Hilarious.  I loved all three of these.

The Six Best TV Shows I Watched in 2010

01.  Big Love:  Seasons 1-3
Who would've thought a show about polygamists would've been so captivating?  Can't wait for Season 4 to come out on January 4th.
I never saw a single show when it was on television, so on a whim I added it to the queue and got addicted.  Great show.

03.  Beverly Hills 90210: Season 9
Such a guilty pleasure.  I'm currently watching the final season right now.
The final season.  Was sad to see it end, but it definitely ran its course.
And to think I almost sent the the first season back after watching only 2 episodes.  Looking forward to the release of Season 3.
Wow.  I really need to get Showtime & HBO, I'm a season behind on all of these great shows.

...and the WORST movie I watched this year...
This was so horrible.  I knew it was going to be lame, so why did I move it to the top of my queue and open the envelope when it arrived?  Click on the link and you can own your very own copy for 87 cents!
