The 10 Most Beautiful Films of 2010

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!

Stephen King’s Top 10 Films of 2010

I don’t always agree with best-selling author Stephen King‘s opinions, but I still love reading his thoughts about the film world. King has published his annual listing of the top 10 films of the year in the latest issue of Entertainment Weekly.

His 2008 list included Death Race, Lakeview Terrace and The Ruins. In 2009, King agreed with the mainstream critics in naming The Hurt Locker as the best film of the year, but the rest of his list was the opposite of conventional – for example, #2 is The Last House on the Left, which he claims is “on par with The Silence of the Lambs” and “easily the most brilliant remake of the decade.” Other films included District 9, The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3 and 2012.

Which films did he choose for his best of 2010 list? King picked Matt ReevesLet Me In as his #1 film of 2010 declaring it “the best horror film of the decade.” Hit the jump to see the full list in brief.

Monsters

Magnolia Pictures/Magnet have presented us with an exclusive first look at four behind the scenes photos from Gareth Edwards’ low budget monster movie Monsters. Since screening the film at Cannes, we’ve been hyping the movie (read my mini review here). We called it Lost in Translation in a world infested by monsters. Check the photos out now after the jump.

Monsters turned into a serious career move for director Gareth Edwards. It led to him having a deal to write and direct a film that Timur Bekmambetov will produce. We don’t know much about the picture, other than it will be an ““epic human story, set in a futuristic world without humanity.”

Mr. Edwards has now talked a bit more about the film, and while he doesn’t reveal any more of the plot, he makes it sound like a serious expansion of the scope of his current film. Read More »

Word on Monsters, the very low-budget film from director Gareth Edwards, has been generally very positive as the film plays festivals and starts to make its way out into the world of regular audiences. Now, in advance of the film’s opening, Edwards already has a follow-up project in the works: a sci-fi epic set in a futuristic world. Read More »
