A pre-emptive look at the people, movies, moments, and anything else unlikely to receive the credit (or derision) they deserve in 2011.
If the rest of 2011 is this good then we are in for a treat.
From veterans who always give great performances to newbies breaking new ground and actors you never thought had it in them, 2010 was the year of the performances.
View the highlights from 2010 as well as some of the best upcoming features for 2011.
This year top prizes go to ‘True Grit,’ ‘The Social Network’, and ‘The Kids Are All Right’…
Some are obvious, some might be surprises, and others you might flat out disagree with. These are my top ten favorite films of 2010.
2010 was a great year, in my humble opinion and 2011 looks to be pretty fantastic as well. Here is my top ten and a few of the things I am most excited about.
The five worst films of 2010, the most overrated, underrated, and my guilty pleasure awards are all given out in the first Year in Review entry.

Creating an annual top ten list is really a high pressure endeavor. Many of the films listed below I have only seen once and although they made a great initial impression on me, it’s hard to know if they have lasting power. Usually I re-assess my top ten list in June/July of the following year […]
When I name a film the “Worst of the Year,” I always have to point out that I am not a full-time film critic. What this means is that I don’t have to see every movie released in a certain year, nor do I make a point to pay for movies that I expect to […]
2009 has been a fantastic debut year for Film Misery. After taking all of 2008 off of film writing and losing much of the success that I had built up with Oscar Addict I had a lot of catching up to do. Here is a look back at the year that was 2009 and some […]
Turner Classic Movies has posted their annual tribute video for the people involved in the film industry who passed away in 2009. TCM often does a better job than the Oscars’ In Memoriam piece and this year’s is fantastic. The music chosen is Steve Earle’s rendition of “To Live is to Fly.” The video is […]

As the annual top ten lists begin to pile in, I am frantically trying to catch up on all of the early season fare that I missed out on. My recent watches have included Gomorra (fantastic) and Funny People (better than expected). My top ten and end of the year awards will be posted starting […]
