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

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.

11 Michael Jackson's This Is It
Very fascinating insight into the construction of, and rehearsals for, MJ's planned 50-night residency at London's O2. Much more interesting than I imagined it might be and showing a side of Jackson that the public may not have ever seen before. His public persona was so much more screwed up than the hard work and dedication he here contributes to his art and vision. However, one thing stood out above all else, and I ask other people to watch out for this... he has freakishly... and I mean FREAKISHLY!!!... massive hands.

Maybe I laughed at something in this in 1985, but there sure as hell wasn't anything to laugh at in 2010. And there's talk of brining this humourless character back?

1) Quarartine
2) Once
3) Don't Say a Word
4) Closer

After seeing this again, I still wonder why Julia Roberts is such a big deal.  I don't find her very attractive and she is a passable actress, but not great.  Especially when you put her next to Natalie Portman, who is a much better actress and MUCH better looking.
