Hat Trick
1. Inglourious Basterds
    Very good, and Tarantino's straightest story.
2. The Road
    Haunting and careful. Deserved to be seen more than it was.
3. Adventureland
    Shockingly good. One of the best post-collegiate type movies ever.
4. A Serious Man
    Dramedy isn't the word - dramatic comedy, maybe - and a fine entry in the Coen canon.
5. The Hurt Locker
    Maybe the best Iraq movie yet.

Shootout Winner
6. Star Trek
    Abrams revived a dead franchise, with plenty of style.
7. Up
    Among the best Pixar films; funny and sad.
8. Invictus
    Clint in fine form; Morgan Freeman's best performance.
9. Paranormal Activity
    Unique and terrifying. Among the decade's best horror.
10. Drag Me to Hell
    No Evil Dead, but it'll do.
11. (500) Days of Summer
    The ultra-rare poignant and mature romantic comedy.
12. Sunshine Cleaning
    Could've been more. But what was there was enjoyable, with excellent performances.
13. Pirate Radio
    The fact that there wasn't much of a plot aside, one of the most enjoyable films of the year.
