It's time once again for my nerdy "Top Ten Favorite Movies of the Year" list! As always, there were plenty of "want-to-see" movies I missed this year, but out of what I saw, I think I had the most fun with these:
1. Safety Not Guaranteed
Maybe it's just my apparent obsession with time travel stories, but this little indie comedy won my heart immediately.
Some people said it was too "Wes Anderson-y" even for Wes Anderson. I don't necessarily disagree. I just don't apparently have a problem with that.
One of the most gorgeously animated movies I've seen in a while, and I enjoyed the story as well.
4. Wreck-It Ralph
Between this and 2010's Tangled, Disney really seems to be back on track with their animated offerings. I enjoyed the original characters and made-up video games as much as I loved seeing the appearances by actual classic characters.
Jack Black turns in a great performance in this based-on-a-true story dark comedy.
More or less the perfect superhero blockbuster. And definitely the best on-screen Hulk so far.
Two time travel tales in the top ten this year!
Even knowing the outcome didn't keep this one from being extremely suspenseful. and with a lot more humor than I expected.
9. This is 40My favorite comedy of the year. Paul Rudd and Lelsie Mann are great.
10. Cabin in the WoodsNot generally a big horror movie fan, but this send-up of all the classic horror movie tropes was too much fun not to love. Also, I'm morally obligated to include any movie that features an appearance by a murderous unicorn in my top ten.
