All good. I don't see any of the unseen films jumping past Duck Soup.

Interesting that Duck Soup as made the top of people's lists as much as the bottom.

Difficult to choose, so many great films, but I went with It Happened One Night.

Top Tier:
It Happened One Night
Mary Poppins
Double Indemnity
Duck Soup
The African Queen
Amadeus



And I can't quite label Lethal Weapon "top tier," but I am extremely fond of it. Great film.


Need to see:
Au Hazard Balthazar
Dog Day Afternoon
The Nightmare Before Christmas

Actually surprised you haven't at least seen Lethal Weapon.  or are you saying the movie isn't worth ranking?

I've seen it, but it was so long ago that it was before I started keeping track of what I had seen and where I ranked them. Some day I'll get around to it again.

Alright people. We got through 2010 pretty okay, and it's time for you to hear my Top 10 Films of 2010. But You don't just want to read a silly list, do you? Maybe you'd prefer to hear my voice. And maybe you'd prefer to hear my voice accompanied by the voice of 1SO. And maybe you'd enjoy listening to us talk non-stop for about three hours.

If all that sounds good to you then you can head over to TheReelists where I present to you...

The Top 10 Films of 2010 featuring Chuck Canzoneri!

There you can listen to the audio feature we prepared. You can download the audio. Or you can even go into iTunes and the audio should appear as part of the iTunes feed at some point.

Enjoy it everyone, and do yourself a favour, do not scroll down the post and spoil yourself by looking at our lists.

Can't get enough FroHam? Read more of my musings at justAtad
