I don't know if this counts, but Empire has already done it's top 10 of the year, and I like it. It's much better then what I was expecting:

1. Let the Right One In
2. Slumdog Millionaire
3. Up
4. The Hurt Locker
5. Star Trek
6. The Wrestler
7. Inglourious Basterds
8. In The Loop
9. District 9
10. Coraline
I actually consider a lot of movies to be life-changing! I take them to my heart and they melt into my personality.

How are they getting away with calling LtROI and Slumdog 2009 films?

Ah okay. Either way, I'm all about not giving Pixar top honours for anything.

I like NBR's list. Doesn't go for bait like Precious or Nine or The Lovely Bones. Still can't say no to Clint though...

How do you know those movies are bait? Couldn't they be good?
