As a New Years gift to you all, the folks at We Eat Films have magically compiled a list of the top 5 movies of 2010 with the help of 37 Vietnamese bus-boys, an unpatented revision of a Tesla invention (deemed unsanitary by the FCC), and a Christmas miracle.  Although this list may differ from that of your Maltins and Eberts, it remains true to We Eat Films and its reviewers.

#5.Kick-Ass

Kick-Ass lived up to its title, whether you loved or hated it. The often extreme and politically incorrect nature of the film brought about its detractors; turns out most of us at We Eat Films loved it for its unique, punchy take on the superhero genre. The movie granted a sense of satisfaction to the viewer few other films have this past year. Even Nicholas Cage delivered a memorable performance. In short, if you like seeing an 11-year-old girl gruesomely pulverize, dismember, and utterly destroy everything and everyone around her, this movie delivers in spades.

#4.Black Swan

While some might be turned off by the risk-taking and claustrophobic nature of this masked horror film, Black Swan turned out be a beautifully terrifying portrayal of madness and obsession. And Natalie Portman drove it all home with a powerful, Oscar-worthy performance. Bonus points for the awesometastic female autoeroticism and girl-on-girl action scenes.

#3.The Social Network

The Social Network was not the “Facebook movie” everyone was expecting – it was better. Together, director David Fincher and writer Aaron Sorkin created what might be the most culturally relevant film of the year. Despite a certain level of coldness, or detachment, permeating the film, strong performances across the board from the likes of Jesse Eisenberg, Andrew Garfield, Armey Hammer, and even Justin Timberlake, as well a wicked fast pace and clever dialogue, lifted this masterpiece to great heights.

#2.Scott Pilgrim vs. The World

Scott Pilgrim was one of the best comic book adaptations to hit theatres this year. Many had no idea what to expect from the previews alone. For those who could swallow its ADHD brand of ridiculousness, the film turned out to be one hell of an awesome surprise, managing to be sweet, funny, unique, and action-packed all in one fell swoop.

#1.Inception

Although none of the reviewers at We Eat Films chose this film as their top pick, Inception received high marks all around.  What it may have lacked in emotional impact, it most certainly made up for in concept, intelligence, creative sequences, and mind-bending visuals.  The movie dreamed big – and it succeeded.
