Movie Quote of the Day – Rabbit Hole, 2010 (dir. John Cameron Mitchell)


Becca: Does it ever go away?
Nat: No, I don’t think it does. Not for me, it hasn’t – has gone on for eleven years. But it changes though.
Becca: How?
Nat: I don’t know. . .the weight of it, I guess. At some point, it becomes bearable. It turns into something that you can crawl out from under and. . .carry around like a brick in your pocket. And you. . .you even forget it, for a while. But then you reach in for whatever reason and – there it is. Oh right, that. Which could be awful – not all the time. It’s kinda. . .not that you’d like it exactly, but it’s what you’ve got instead of your son. So, you carry it around. And uh. . .it doesn’t go away. Which is. . .
Becca: Which is what?
Nat: Fine, actually.

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.

New Posters For The Tourist, Rabbit Hole, Morning Glory and The Way Back


I cannot wait to see all of these movies. They each have the potential to be amazing, though they’re all such different genres. They also star a plethora of people I love.
