Movie Quote of the Day – Ondine, 2009 (dir. Neil Jordan)


ondine

Ondine: I don’t want to see anyone.
Syracuse: Will I just disappear then?
Ondine: I don’t mind seeing you.
Syracuse: “You don’t mind seeing me.” That’s nice.
Ondine: Say again?
Syracuse: Most people do.
Ondine: Well, I don’t.
Syracuse: Why not?
Ondine: Because. . .you fished me from the water.

Cinema Fanatic’s Favorite Fifteen Films of 2010


So we’ve gotten to the end of the year, which, of course, means end-of-the-year lists. I don’t think 2010 was the worst year ever, but it pales in comparison to 2009. Last year I was in love with so many films – starting very early in the year and continuing into January of this year with the films I wasn’t able to see before ’09 ended. I really just think 2010 will go down as a mediocre year. I did, however, still manage to come up with a list of my 15 favorite films of the year. I’d like to emphasize that this list is based on my favorites and not necessarily a “best” list. I’d  also like to note that, unlike last year, I was able to see almost all of the 2010 releases I was interested in seeing before the New Year. There were three, however, that I missed that I wish I could have seen before making this list: The King’s Speech, 127 Hours and Blue Valentine. There’s no guarantee those would have made the list anyhow, but I still wish I could have seen them. Regardless, I did manage to see fifty-five 2010 releases this year, a personal record for new releases. I’d also like to note that I’ve seen over 500 new-to-me films this year, but I’ll make a proper round-up post for that tomorrow (I’m watching movies til Midnight tonight!).

The list is after the cut, because I think my #1 is a little shocking and I want to keep up the suspense.
