The Last Blog Post of 2010

I'm still in the process of seeing some of the big U.S. releases in December (“King's Speech”; “True Grit”), so I'm holding off on my Top 10 list until all that's done. If I can't promise punctuality I can promise thoroughness. Since I can't be the first out with a top 10 list, I hope to be the last.

In the meantime, here are the movies I've reviewed so far this year. “Un Prophete” and “Restrepo” are still tops for me.

What about you? Favorite movies from 2010?

Feel free to include favorite books and songs as well. I really need songs.

(And for anyone who thinks the conceptual video with great dancing is dead, please check out Janelle Monae's “Tightrope,” which I first came across via Time magazine's top 10 list. A sure sign you're old: when Time magazine is hipper than you.)

Good-bye, 2010. Skol, everyone.

Chuc Mung Nam Moi! (Happy New year! in VN). Janelle Monae is amazing...as a friend said, she channels the ghost of James Brown very well...

Feliz Año Nuevo (Happy new year! in Argentina). Just wanted to say it's been a pleasure to read all of your postings throughout the year. I wish the movies here would catch up already so I could read the reviews, too.

For music, I've been digging on the new Black Keys album recently come around to Arcade Fire's latest. I'm afraid moving away has completely removed me from the music scene. It's an ongoing frustration.
