I’m aiming to get a list of some sort up on Mondays. Since I’ve finally watched ten movies released this year, here’s my first top ten movies of the year list. I could see the argument that The Counterfeiters should count as last year because of the Oscars, but let’s face it, it shouldn’t. Also, I really loved Rambo. I can’t help but think that those who didn’t don’t understand the core of what an action movie should be. Or, at the very least, have wildly different expectations about actions movies than I do.

Broadly speaking, the first four belong in a tier, then the next four, then then last two.

  1. Forgetting Sarah Marshall
  2. Rambo
  3. In Bruges
  4. Iron Man
  5. Run Fatboy Run
  6. The Promotion
  7. The Counterfeiters
  8. How She Move
  9. The Bank Job
