The Rest...

So we come to the last installment in the “Anticipated movies of 2010” train of thought. Normally, these last films would be the ones that were anticipated all year long—the true top ten, if you will. For some reason, though, the announcement of movies was not done very early, and some films even slipped out without much buzz. (Some of the best films thus far never made any of my anticipated posts.) So, here we have eleven more films for a grand total of 40.

11. Red
This one just looks fun.

10. The Black Swan
This one may end up being nothing more than offensive, but the promise of scares and good old fashioned psychological terror put it on the list.

9. Skyline
I don’t have high hopes for this one, and it looks pretty heavy-handed so far. However, the potential for generating thought is always there with this genre and the visuals look promising.

8. The Social Network
This one is directed by David Fincher, a fact that earns it an automatic spot on the list. It doesn’t look like normal, nonmodern-genre fare, but it does look rich in social commentary.

7. Monsters
This one is getting a lot of buzz for being this year’s District 9. It looks like it could be even better.

6. My Soul to Take
This horror looks pretty straight-forward slasher fare, except that it is directed by Wes Craven. He has been known in the past for making some very thoughtful, philosophical takes on the genre.

5. The Tourist
This is the latest film directed by Florian Henckel Von Donnersmarck, of Das Leben der Anderen fame. It looks like one of those everyman-caught-up-in-international-intrigue stories, stars Johny Depp, and takes place in Venice.

4. Hereafter
For once, a film directed by Clint Eastwood that might have supernatural aspects. (To be fair, there was High Plains Drifter.)

3. The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader
There is nothing more that I can say to justify this choice. Just look at the C.S. Lewis or Narnia labels on other NonModernBlog posts.

2. True Grit
I don’t have a lot of history with the Western Genre, but plan to remedy that. Plus, it is directed by the Coen brothers and when they deliver, they really deliver. Check out what Carmen has to say about this one here.

1. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1
Of course…
