24 movies I missed in 2010

The list-making bug caught up with me yesterday, so I'm not going to be able to leave it alone with just songs and comics. Over the coming week I'm going to post about every 2010 movie I saw. All 52 of them. In order from least favorite to most.

But as I made the list, I was also reminded of all the movies that I wanted to see this year, but never got around to for a variety of reasons. So, by way of explaining why you won't see Toy Story 3 or Harry Potter 7.1 on the big list, here are - in alphabetical order - all the movies that I wish I could've caught in the theater in 2010. Some of them (Harry Potter) I hope to still see on the Big Screen, but I'll have to wait for most until they hit the Netflix.

I'm tempted to comment on why I want to see each of the following movies or - better yet - why I missed them, but I'll resist that. If you really want to know why any of these appear here, I'll be happy to go into detail in the comments.

There are a lot I haven't seen, either. The Girl Who Played with Fire was great. I hadn't heard of Monsters. Thanks for the suggestions. The Joneses looked so depressing to me. You'll have to let me know. I hated The Squid and the Whale, I thought it'd be similar. Anyway...

Centurion, Girl who Played with Fire and the Red Riding Trilogy are all on Netflix instant view.

Monsters I would not pay more then $1 to see...

Celeste, the trailer I saw for The Joneses looked funny, so I hope it's not depressing. I don't have a lot of patience for movies that leave me feeling worse when I come out than when I went in.

Charles, thanks for the Netflix tip. I just got an iPod Touch, so I think I'll try those out on that!

all of them are on my to watch list, but I have been falling asleep right after putting the girls to sleep lately so I have been missing my chance to watch them!

Don't feel bad. I managed exactly TWO (2) films in theaters last year.

Sherlock Holmes on Jan 1st and True Grit on Dec 25th. That's a biiiig gap.

I imagine that the upside of that is that your seen:enjoyed ratio is excellent.

My seen:enjoyed ratio is always rather high thanks to my impeccable (knowledge of my) taste.
