Stephen King is not trustworthy when it comes to movies, and he'd tell you that, himself. Case in point: He introduced his "10 Best Movies of 2008" list for Entertainment Weekly by writing, "I'm not trustworthy when it comes to movies." The prolific and celebrated author has crafted an absurd number of beloved and horrifying novels (and also Dreamcatcher), but his annual movie countdown routinely ranks amongst the most startling prose of his career. To each their own and whatnot, but unless you consider Jason Statham to be the Sir Laurence Olivier of our time, you probably won't see the logic behind a number of his choices (Jason Statham, of course, is merely the Marlon Brando of our time).
King is totally forthcoming about the fact that he's seduced by the flickering lights of the cinema (his mini-review of 'Saw V' read: "My forebrain was thinking: Oh, man, this is the year's biggest pile of cinematic dog vomit. But the rest of my brain is thinking, I'm at the mooooovies! IS THIS GREAT OR WHAT?"), and his lists suggest that he has almost as little interest in independent or foreign films as the average American. That being said, it's always fun to see what a great creative mind from another medium has to say about movies. So without much further ado, here's a list of what Richard Bachman's alter-ego enjoyed most at the multiplexes in 2010.
