December means list time!

Probably my favorite year-end list; The AV Club's Best Films of 2010. Not only is it an interesting list, but be sure to check out page 2, which compiles the individual ballots, complete with categories like the next 5 (with descriptions), overrated, and guilty pleasure.

60 Women Who Define the Year of the Actress.

The 10 Most Overrated Movies of 2010. I completely agree with Shutter Island, Toy Story 3 (those "For Your Consideration" ads are unbelievably nauseating), and I've heard it is true for the Kids Are All Right. Hey, though, I liked Kick Ass! And I still plan on seeing Monsters and 127 Hours.

Poorly Reviewed Films that Deserve Another Chance. Well, I want to see Agora...

Christmas Gifts for Movie Lovers, Bechdel-Style. *sigh* It shouldn't be this hard to come up with 14 films.

The Alternative Awards: Supporting Actresses. I actually really like the Juliette Lewis suggestion. She makes an indelible impact with very little screen time.

Unmerriest Christmas Moments.

Not a list, but interesting in the midst of the awards race, Do the Oscars Have a Double Standard on Horror?

The Alternative Awards: Screenplays. Yay Fish Tank!

What Happens when Americans Travel Overseas... In the Movies?

The Film Society of Lincoln Center's top 50. Fun fact! I've seen 8. Gah. And the unreleased list is just cruel.

Weirdest Holiday art.

The indieWire Critic's Poll, which compiles 125 film critic and blogger opinions. (I've seen 12 of the top 50 here - yay Marwencol!). I also love that Michael Fassbender came in third for supporting performance behind John Hawkes (yay!) and Christian Bale.

The Ten Best Films of 2010, in quiz form!

The 35 Funniest Quotes of 2010.

25 best performances that won't win oscars. Here's to Jim Carrey (I Love You, Philip Morris), Dale Dickey (Winter's Bone), Katie Jarvis (Fish Tank), and Brendan Gleeson (Perrier's Bounty)!

The best movies about theater.

The Weekend Warrior's Top 25. Lots of great picks, and some fun cheating.

The NYT's 3: Manohla Dargis, A. O. Scott, and Stephen Holden.

And John Water's list.

15 TRON Easter Eggs.

The 10 best Scrooges. Um. This writer is on crack.

The Best Geek Outs of 2010. Wow. All of these, except for Fringe and the video games.

The best theater
. *sigh* This is when I miss living in New York.

The best TV character deaths. (spoilers. Obvs.)

8 of the Naughtiest TV Characters of the year. Love the top 2.

This is not a list, but I really liked it: 3 Minutes on 3 Brothers. Oh, and here is King George IV actually speaking, pre-therapy.
