I hope everyone here had a happy holiday break! I had the chance to finally sit back, relax aimlessly for a few days, and take in some Netflix Watch Instantly films that I wouldn’t get to during the normal course of events. One such film was Sweetgrass, which guest Matt Singer discussed on a previous episode of the /Filmcast. As I watched, I was struck with the film’s breathtaking beauty, and I realized that there’ve been some great-looking films this past year.
Here are what I consider to be the 10 most beautiful films of 2010. There’s no grand unifying theory to this list, other than that these are movies I personally really enjoyed looking at for one reason or another. They are presented in no particular order.
Oh, and tune in on Tuesday night at 9 PM EST at slashfilm’s live page to hear us countdown our top 10 films of 2010!

EXIT THROUGH THE GIFT SHOP
Describing the engrossing, frequently hilarious Banksy-directed Exit Through the Gift Shop as one of the best story-driven documentaries I’ve ever seen would almost certainly be misleading, as its veracity has been a point of contention since its Sundance premiere. To delve into the topic further would require detailing plot details that I’d be remiss to give away, so I’ll just say this: The strength of the film is that whether or not it’s authentic doesn’t matter. The ultimate take-away from the picture comes from a place of complete truth, and that truth only resonates in the way that it does because the story was told in this form. Not only does the picture provide fascinating insight into the world of graffiti art, but it tackles the nebulous subject of the nature of art and people’s perception of it in a way that appalled and fascinated me. Give it a chance, and I’m sure it will do the same to you.
Available on Blu-ray? No.
Notable Extras: B Movie film about the ‘Art’ of Banksy, a Life Remote Control (Lawyer’s Edit) movie that started it all, deleted scenes, and limited edition inserts designed by Banksy.

Warner Bros./Village Roadshow Pictures have released the first full length movie trailer for Zack Snyder‘s computer animated adaptation Legend of the Guardians, based on the popular children’s book series Guardians of Ga’Hoole. If you haven’t already seen the trailer, click here. The new trailer is basically an extended version of the teaser trailer, complete with the same musical choices, and yes, a bunch of new footage. This looks like a quality family film, I can’t believe Snyder found time to do this while he was shooting Sucker Punch at the same time. Watch the two and a half minute trailer, embedded after the jump.

We’ve not even had the tiniest glimpse of Zack Snyder‘s Legend of the Guardians aka The Guardians of Ga’Hoole yet, and the film is only six months from release. This weekend, though, the computer generated warriors owl will be arriving in a big way as their trailer heads out to cinemas. It’s quite exciting to think the first I might see of these characters will be on the big screen – it doesn’t happen very often these days. Heck, I’ve even been moved to consider it news.
According to the website of Kathryn Lasky, author of the original Ga’Hoole books:
My big news is about the Guardians movie! A trailer for it will be shown all across the country attached to Alice in Wonderland starting March fifth. Go look for it.
And not just across the country, Kathryn: the BBFC have passed the certificate for screening in the UK too. Their page on the matter confirms that the trailer is in 3D, and lists a run time of 2 minutes and 15 seconds.
