New to me movies are bolded.

1. Up In the Air
2. Bottle Rocket
3. The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus  I could have used a little bit more exposition, but visually amazing.
4. The Hangover Funny, but Bradley Cooper's character was annoying. Would have been better in the theater
5. Avatar 3-D version.  As has been stated before, so pretty
6. The House Bunny It didn't suck. And was way more conservative/traditional than I would have expected.
7. Keeping Mum Maggie Smith plays a psychopath, Rowan Atkinson plays a normal person, and Patrick Swayze plays a sleazy golf pro.
8. Tin Man Sy-fy mini series redoing "The Wizard of Oz".  Stick to the original, as Zooey D. is annoying and Alan Cumming is underused.
9. The Talented Mr. Ripley Who knew you could feel sympathy for a psychopath?
10. When in Rome Cute, predictable, and snappier than expected.
11. Gods and Monsters very quiet film, and interesting look at the director who created Frankenstein and Showboat.
12. 2010 Academy Award Nominated Animated Short Films
13. 2010 Academy Award Nominated Short Films
14. In Good Company Dennis Quaid = good, Scarlett Johannsen = I don't understand the appeal.
15. Shaun the Sheep off the Baa By Nick Park, lots of sheep shorts. Previews were for the under 5 yo crowd.
16. Alice in Wonderland 3D.  Just enough Johnny Depp.  Good flick, very fun, and remarkably not scary-creepy.
17. Saving Face Chinese lesbian living in New York tries to keep her life from her mother.
18. Hogfather Another Sy-Fy type movie. Really need to stop watching these, because they aren't as good as they should be.
19. Fanboys So fun, and the music was dead-on.  I'll leave all other fan-wanking to people more vested in Star wars.
20. How to Train Your Dragon 3-d.  I think I should be getting residuals for dragon-inspiration.  Toothless= dead ringer for my cat!
21. Sex, Lies, and Videotape- I still love James Spader, though he has creepy characters nailed.
22. 17 Again.  Sucked Again
23. The Proposal- not too bad on the plane
24. Four Rooms  Interesting combo of short films.  Tarantino is annoying, though.
25. Barbershop  Light movie, and pretty funny.  I'd heard it was good, and I definitely enjoyed it.
26. Babies very cute, and we westerners way smother our kids.  Look out for goats!
27. Shrek 4 It was what it was.  Needed more Gingy and Puss.
28. A Lot Like Love Ashton Kutcher is actually pretty good! I liked this movie alot- it would be a good one to watch again.
29. Harold and Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay. Like the first one better, but NPH makes this one for me.
30. Leonard Maltin's Animation Favorites I'm counting these, because they are movie shorts. Sponsored by the Canadian Film board. Interesting, especially some of the really old ones. Thanks, Netflix.
31. Desk Set Hepburn/Tracy as a reference librarian and an efficiency expert.  Still very relevant to today, though google has made lots of the drama obsolete.  Very good!
32. Best in Show    Still very good, though I prefer a mighty wind
33.Toy Story      Haven't seen in years, but it was soooo good. Am ready to see the third part now!
34. Up     Again, Pixar does amazing things with stories.
35. Pinnochio    Came in half-way through, but I'm counting it as "seen".  Don't lie, or your nose will grow!
36. Toy Story 3 A delightful experience, and I admit, I was teary eyed multiple times.
37. Despicable Me Also fun, and amazingly light. Loved how Vortex's stuff was all Apple-y and seamless.
38. We are Marshall Those kids were babies.  Matthew McC. wasn't bad in this, amazingly
39. Bourne Identity   Time for the annual viewing! Damon is looking like a child in this one. Still so very good.
40. Ponyo Miyazaki does it again, nice tight story, interesting world was created, and the goldfish was red.
41. Pixar's Shorts, Vol. 1 Included the one with the lamp, which I hadn't seen, and the short that inspired Toy Story Very good!
42. Miami Vice  I just couldn't care, but was more excited to see Ciaran Hinds than Colin Farrell.
43. The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus  Better the second time around, still visually amazing.
44. Reality Bites.  Oh, Winona, you so made the wrong decision in this one! (Watching at 35 is very different than at 20)
45. You Again could have been better, but will work very well as a Saturday movie on TNT or something.
46. Easy A A very cute movie, and way more name actors than I expected.  Emma Stone did a great job carrying the movie.
47. Life as we Know It This movie was so made for women- Josh Duhmel w/o shirt, w/ baby, in motorcycle jacket, gets kiss close up.
48. Capote Really good, I liked that it wasn't about the murders specifically.  And the casualness of Harper Lee being there was great. Would have really liked a movie about her.
49. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows I did really like this one.  Can't believe I have to wait until July for the next one!
49.5 The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe  - Saw half of it.
50. Sherlock Holmes  Fun, but I've been spoiled by the new BBC version
51. Tangled I always enjoy a good Disney flick, and this one did pretty well.  A little scary for young peeps.

52. Shawn of the Dead - I really do enjoy a gooey Zombie flick. strange.

And I made it to 50+!  I watched lots of tv series this year rather than movies, otherwise the count would have been higher.

79. The Fighter - 9

Absolutely stunning performance by Christian Bale.  Melissa Leo was the other top-notch acting job here, as Micky Ward's mother.  Marky Mark was... the same as he is in all his movies.  Amy Adams was good, but she cried too much for my liking.  I did not know this story, so it probably gets an extra bump for it being a surprise.  The fight scenes were surprisingly good... it almost got me fired up to be a fight fan again.  Almost every aspect of the story rang true and not "Hollywood-ized", although I'm sure some things were puffed up for the telling.  Great story, well made.

Same here. Watched a lot more TV series on Netflix and such than I did movies.

I'm really looking forward to both True Grit and this one. I didn't even know there was a film about Irish Micky Ward until a few days ago! I saw all three of his fights with Gatti at the time, so I'm really keen to catch this one. I'm happily re-assured to see you sing it's praises so highly.

1. Nowhere to run.
2. Godzilla (told the kiddo "It's just a cheesy monster movie", she kept asking me "So are the monster's legs made of cheese?")
3. The mask
4. Mrs. Pettigrew lives for a day.
5. The fifth element
6. Kindergarten cop
7. Nanny McPhee
8. The lion, the witch, and the wardrobe
9. Prince Caspian
10. Magnificent Obsession (1935) - Thank you Criterion Collection!
11. 27 Dresses
12. Indiana Jones and Raiders of the Lost Ark
13. Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom - Willie is one of the most annoying female characters EVER.
14. Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade
15. Sherlock Holmes - We enjoyed it well enough, the slo-mo bits were a bit annoying. I enjoyed Jude Law much more than Robert Downey Jr. The trailers for Iron Man 2 and Clash of the Titans were pretty freaking sweet though.
16. Indiana Jones and the crystal skull (or whatever the full title is) - Meh, it broke up the robotech marathon.
17. Driving Miss Daisy
18. Monsters vs. Aliens
19. Beavis & Butthead do America
20. Star Wars: a new hope
21. Empire strikes back
22. Return of the Jedi
23. Ultimate Avengers
24. Buckets of Blood (Steve had never seen it)
25. Clash of the Titans - Oh Lisa Rinna, would you have married Harry if he had remained prettier than you?
26. Black Cadillac - I am convinced this movie is what made Randy Quaid go off the deep end.
27. Lady & the tramp
28. The little mermaid
29. Avatar
30. Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
31. GI Joe: rise of the cobra
32. Tinkerbell and the great fairy rescue
33. Barbie: A fashion fairytale
34. Gamera
35. Iron Man 2
36. Edward Scissorhands - God I love this movie.
37. Big trouble in little china.
38. Hercules vs. the moon men. Steve Reeves in all his cheesy glory.
40. Goulies
41. Nightmare before Christmas
42. Toy story 3
43. How to train your dragon
44. The legend of the bonenapper (the bonus dvd with how to train your dragon)
45. Scott Pilgrim vs. the world. I enjoyed the bloopers way more than the actual film. This made my husband sad but I am okay with it.
46. Meet me in St. Louis
47. Elf - the crap I do for family.
48. Pride & Prejudice - Did they really need to cut off the last two minutes of the movie to get to a new episode of Kendra? Really?
49. The year without a Santa Claus
50. Scrooged

Updating b/c I was too lazy to go online last week:

51. True Grit - I really liked it. They could've done more with Matt Damon's character, but I haven't read the book so I don't know just how involved he really is in the story. The girl was amazing as was Jeff Bridges. It took me a minute to recognize Barry Pepper too.

(Holy crap,I made it to 51 this year--I didn't think I'd make it)

1. A Boy Named Charlie Brown- "Owning 10% of Charlie Brown is like owning 10% of nothing!"
2. Crazy Love- Documentary about a guy who threw acid on a former girlfriend's face, blinding her.  Pretty interesting.
3. Wristcutters: A Love Story- Quirky little story.  Liked it a lot.  
4. District 9- Liked this a lot.  Pretty different.
5. The Maiden Heist- Morgan Freeman, Christopher Walken and William H. Macy.  Very cool quirky indie-type film.  Don't know if this just got a limited release or we just weren't paying attention, but this was really good.
6. Julie & Julia-  LOVED the Julia stuff, didn't care one way or the other about the Julie stuff.  Meryl Streep really can do anything.  
7. The Rare Breed- Jimmy Stewart, Maureen O'Hara, and Juliet Mills.  Brian Keith plays what has to be one of the inspirations for Groundskeeper Willie
8. Cover Girl- Rita Hayworth and Gene Kelly.  Pretty cute, if predictable.  Phil Silvers and Gene made the movie.  Rita was just the pretty face.
9. Big Fan- Um...good, but creepy. Sports Obsession taken to the extreme. Patton Oswalt was really good in this.  
10. Zigfield Follies-  You have let me down Turner Classic Movies!  Let me down!  Somehow hearing that William Powell was "playing" Zigfield made me think that this was a movie about the follies, not a bunch of folly skits....sketches...whatever.  They were okay and all, especially the Astaire/Kelly number, but not what I was in the mood for.  Guess there OTHER movie where William Powell plays Zigfield is the movie about the follies.  
11. Moon.  This was good.  Really well acted, liked the Compy played by Kevin Spacey and a smiley face quite a bit.  Skip the short film that's also on the DVD though.  It's not super short, and not that good.  No idea the director was David Bowie's son til I IMDB'd it later
12. Taking Woodstock- I liked it.  Freaking loved Liev Schriber.  
13. Roman Holiday- TCM on Demand.  Very good.  Kept wondering who the friend was.  Looked him up, he's the guy from Green Acres!  Gregory Peck was awesome.  Audrey Hepburn was awesome.  Pretty much made me want to run away and play around for a whole day.
14. Pinky- TCM on Demand again.  Part of Black History Month.  Man, racism sucks.
15. Pop Star on Ice- Johnny Weir's documentary.  Really interesting.  I guess Sundance aired it as a precursor to his reality show.  I think that Johnny really got judged at the olympics based on his off-ice antics as equally as his performance. It's funny, at one point Johnny's mom is comparing Johnny and Lysacek and she's talking about how Johnny is more artist, and Lysacek is more athlete, and that's the same complaint that Plushenko had with the Olympics, that he was the athlete and Lysacek was the artist.  
16. Full Grown Men-  We watched it for Judah Friedlander and Amy Sedaris.  Amy was in it for approximately 3 minutes, and Judah couldn't save it from the annoying twit of a lead.  I didn't like this at all.
17. 13 Going on 30.  Caught this on the FX HD channel while I was feeding and playing with the baby.  Wasn't awful, wasn't great.  It was good for something do have on while doing other things.
18. Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs.  Really cute, liked Steve the monkey.
19. It's Always Fair Weather- Gene Kelly, Cyd Charisse.  Really good.  Kelly doing a number on rollerskates was amazing.
20. Parnell- Clark Gable, Myrna Loy.  Not sure if this was a true story or not, but it was about an Irish Politian (Gable) who falls for a rival's wife (Loy).  It's really bad because he's like the only Irishman who would convince England to give them Home Rule...or something.  Not a great movie, not a terrible movie.  AWFUL accents...for the parts where they tried to do accents.  Gable and Loy do have a fair amount of chemistry though.  
21. Lars & the Real Girl- Cute, better and less creepy than I thought it was going to be
22. FairyTale: A True Story.  Only stoped on this because I saw Bill Nighy.  I don't know why I stopped, he's been in more bad movies than good
23. Inglourious Basterds. Liked it a lot.  Like Kwyj said, it wasn't nearly as gory or violent as I thought it was going to be.  I guess they marketed it that way so all the dudes would go see it?  Only had to close my eyes for 2 parts.
24. Will Ferrell You're Welcome America: A Final Night with George W. Bush. The part with the nicknames was my favorite
25. The Pirate- Another Gene Kelly & Judy Garland pic.  Judy wasn't really in this as much.  Apparently it was one of her more drugged up/sickly periods.  The last of Judy's movies that Minnelli directed.  Kelly was awesome. SUPER handsome and all swarthy and stuff
26. Quality Street. RomCom from 1937 starring Katharine Hepburn.  It was okay.  
27. Royal Wedding- Fred Astaire's "dancing on the celing" movie.  Good for the dancing, story was okay.
28. A Place in the Sun.  Sad and so intense it was hard to watch.  That said though, it was really good
29. Blue Hawaii.  Elvis.  Loved it.  Too funny that Angela Landsbury was his mom in this.  I looked it up later and she's only 10 years older than he was.
30. Poseiden Adventure- The original.  Loved this when I was a kid, still liked it today.  
31. Ratatouille- Not my favorite Pixar, but even that is better than soooo much else that's out there
32. the Goods Live Hard Sell Hard- Did they make this movie like 5 years ago, shelve it because it wasn't very good, then release it when The Hangover came out?  Ken Jeong looks a lot different in this than he does on Community
33. Idiocracy- Awesome
34. Summer Stock- Gene Kelly & Judy Garland again.  *love*
35. Jewel Robbery- Old movie with William Powell.  Thought it was really funny they kept referring to the robber as this "dashing young man."  I think William Powell was probably one of those people who never looked young.
36. Sherlock Homes- Liked it way more than I thought I would.
37. Meet Me in St. Louis- Not as much music in this musical as I'm used to. The Halloween night scenes were shot so cool.
38. The Awful Truth- Cary Grant and  Irene Dunn want a divorce...or do they?
39. Shutter Island- Really dug it.  
40. The Cooler- LOVED this.  William H Macy is so awesome.  Cannot believe that casinos really used/use this "cooler" method.  But I can also totally see it too.  Weird.
41. The Men Who Stare at Goats- I liked this a lot.  Slow pacing, but in a good way.  They really took the time to build it all up nicely.  Loved the line at the beginning that said something to the effect of "more of this story than you can believe is true"
42. The Informant!  Again, just a really good flick.  Perfectly played by Matt Damon and Joel McHale and Scott Bakula.  
43. Iron Giant- Can't believe I had never seen this.  Really good heartfelt with actually animation.  I sometimes forget how good animation looks.  Makes me want to break out Disney's Robin Hood or Fox and the Hound or The Secret of NIMH or something.
44. 2001: A Space Odyssey.  *in best Men on Film voice* "hated it"
45. Life with Father- Like Kwij said, William Powell and a crazy beautiful 14 year old Elizabeth Taylor in a supporting role.  I had seen this when I was younger and always loved it.  Held up well in my estimation.  Just a really good wholesome sweet little movie.
46. Oklahoma.  Weird seeing Shirley Jones with any hairstyle other than her super mod 70s shag/bob thing.  
47. Crossroads- William Powell Heddy Lamar and Basil Rathbone (BR Day on TCM). Rathbone is blackmailing Powell for something he did in his past.  Good stuff.
48. The Last Days of Pompeii, Basil Rathbone day on TCM.
49. The Shop Around the Corner.  Belive this is the first of the movies like this.  Also one with Judy Garland, and of course, You've Got Mail with Tom Hanks.  This was the Jimmy Stewart version.  Simple sweet little movie.  
50. Picnic- This was great.  William Holden and Kim Novak star. Heartbreaking.
51. The Mummy (1959)
52. Curse of the Mummy's Tomb (1964)
53. The Mummy's Shroud (71)  Watched these Hammer films on TCM one night
54. The Mad Magician- Old Vincent Price flick.  Not bad, not good.  He's the bad guy (of course), but one you're rooting for
55. Andy hardy's Double Life
56. Andy Hardy's Blonde Trouble
57. Some other stupid Andy Hardy movie.  TCM had Mickey Rooney day or something I guess.  There were like 20 of these stupid movies.  I guess they were popular.  I don't understand why.  Also don't get why Andy (Mickey Rooney) got all the hot girls.  Esther Williams, Donna Reed, Judy Garland...  Yeah, I'm not seeing it.

I'm pretty sure this catches me up, and I'm not duplicating anything on my list.  Probably forgot some old movies, but you can't keep track of them all...well, you could, but I didn't.

58. James & The Giant Peach.  Watched this forever ago on steaming Netflix.  This was awesome.  
59. The Long, Long Trailer  Lucy & Desi.  Classic.  I strangely always thought it was part of the show when I was a kid.  Like I thought it was Lucy & Desi’s (the characters)  honeymoon.
60. The Neverending Story  Also a Netflix streaming view I believe.  Holds up well.  
61. My Favorite Wife  Irene Dunn & Cary Grant.  
62. A Serious Man  I really liked this quite a bit.  Kind of weird, but I was expecting that, it’s the Coens.
63. The Fantastic Mr. Fox.  Really liked it, but I like Wes Anderson.  I think somebody else said at the time that it looked like Wes Anderson, just stop animation instead of live action, and that just about sums it up.
64. Love Actually.  Annual viewing.  Ugh.  Can’t believe the sheriff from Walking Dead was the one guy in this though.
65. The Hoax.  Richard Gere plays the guy who faked the Howard Hughes biography in the 70s.  
66. The Haunting.  First time I watched this I had to turn it off because it freaked me out so bad.  
67. Mad Money.  Lame.
68. Date Night  “I’m a man on bottom, if you’re into that”  I thought this was hilarious.  I think I went in with low expections though, since everybody else I knew said “It was funny, but it could have been better”
69. In the Good Old Summertime.  2nd of the “pen pal who is the peson you hate, but you don’t really hate them, you love them” movies.  Kwyj said we are not going to go for the trilogy and watch You’ve Got Mail, even though it’s not that bad, and we both love Tom Hanks and Steve Zahn.
70. Some old black & white monster movie set in Rome.  Involved a fishing village as the site of some rocket ship crash, and they brought back a creature.  a CREATURE.  Watched this on TCM or TCM on demand.  tried to look it up, but couldn't find it.  It was cheesy and bad, but fun.  The fight between the elephant at the zoo and the creature was magnificent.
71. Breakfast at Tiffany's

50. In the Good Ol' Summertime - Almost a one for one copy of The Shop Around the Corner, with the exception of the music stuff and the deal with the violin.  Pretty good, I liked Shop Around the Corner better.

51. Breakfast at Tiffany's - Still pretty awesome.  How can you not love Audrey Hepburn?  Still have a hard time reconciling the fact that Paul Varjak and Hannibal from The A-Team are the same person.

98. THE NEXT THREE DAYS - 11/27/10 - AMC Parkway Point - 3 out of 5
99. THE KIDS ARE ALL RIGHT - 11/28/10 - DVD - 3.5 out of 5 - Mark Ruffalo is dreamy.
100. THE YOUNG VICTORIA - 10/01/10 - HBO or Showtime or Starz - 2.5 out of 5 - I didn't feel like I got to know much about Victoria at all.  Meh.
101. SPREAD - On Demand - Hello, Margarita Levieva! Where have you been all of my life?
102. EL CANTANTE - Blockbuster Online - The look of the movie is gorgeous. Loved the translation of the lyrics during some performance scenes. Better than I thought.
103. BANGKOK DANGEROUS - Showtime - Ends the way most people want a Nic Cage movie to end.
104. TEMPLE GRANDIN - HBO - An amazing story and a brilliant performance from Claire Danes.
105. BURLESQUE - 12/12/10 - AMC Barrett Commons 24 - 2 out of 5
106. GOING THE DISTANCE - 12/12/10 - dvd from Blockbuster - 2.5 out of 5
107. THE DISAPPEARANCE OF ALICE CREED - 12/13/10 - dvd from Blockbuster - 3 out of 5 - the first 5 minutes of this movie are AMAZING! It jumps the shark about 30 minutes later. But, I can see what they were going for. And for those who are on perv watch, you get to see Gemma Arterton's air bags.
108. WINTER'S BONE - 12/14/10 - dvd from library - 4 out of 5
109. UNANSWERED PRAYERS - 12/14/10 - Lifetime movie - 3 out of 5 (based on a sliding scale for Lifetime movies) - I recorded this because it stars Samantha Mathis and Madchen Amick, two of my 90s girl crushes. Not bad for a Lifetime movie based on a Garth Brooks' song.
110. 127 HOURS - 12/17/10 - AMC Barrett Parkway 24 - 4.5 out of 5 - It'll stick with you for a while. Not the "cutting off his own arm" scene. The whole film. The experience. Awesdome Danny Boyle camera tricks and POVs. LOVED.
111. TRANSFORMERS: REVENGE OF THE FALLEN - 12/18/10 - HBO HD - 0 out of 5 - I stopped paying attention and played ANGRY BIRDS while The Greg watched this. I owed him one for ALICE CREED.
112. BOTTLE SHOCK - 12/19/10 - STARZ - 3.5 out of 5 - I enjoyed the story and that was enough to carry the movie. Rickman was fantastic.
113. SUNSHINE CLEANING - 12/18/10 - Cable - 3.5 out out of 5 - Better than I thought it was going to be. Adams was great.
114. BLACK SWAN - 12/31/10 - AMC Pkwy Point - 3.5 out of 5
115. TRUE GRIT - 12/31/10 - AMC Pkwy Point - 3 out of 5
116. NEW YORK, I LOVE YOU - 12/31/10 - TiVo - 2 out of 5 (I bumped it up 1/2 star because of  I really liked the Natalie Portman section, though I had no idea that it was written and directed by her until the end of the film.)

116 NEW movies in 2010. Yowza!

At the end of 2009, I wrote this...

So, 144 movies eh? Can't say I will be waching as many next year if recent trends continue.

I have watched 144 movies this year and likely to watch "Party Party" (again) tomorrow as my 145th

How weird is that number? Is it just 'the most I can take' or have the physical time for or something?

No way I'm gonna watch the same quantity in 2011 (Famous last words?)

d'OH!!
