The Movie List

2010's best -- and worst -- movies ranked. "Social Network"? "Inception?" "SATC2"? See where they fall!

Welcome to The Movie List. It's exactly what it sounds like: an ongoing, frequently updated  ranking of the year's movies, from No. 1 to infinity. Of course it's subjective and impressionistic and prone to all sorts of perceptual flaws and chronological bias. And sure, it's also ludicrous: How do you decide whether a documentary about schoolchildren in Harlem is better or worse than "Hot Tub Time Machine"? Or "The Human Centipede"? Or "Shutter Island"? Answer: I just ask myself which one I'd rather watch again, tonight.

I'll update at least once a week, and new additions will be marked accordingly.
