Metacritic Top 200 in 2010

I always like to check in on the scores over at Metacritic at the end of the year, to temper the popularity vote that IMDb Top 250 list seems to have, but also because it's one place where I still find titles I've never heard before. The formatting and design have changed over at the site so the info I pulled is every so slightly different from last year, but overall it's more rather than less info. Interesting to see that 8 titles from 2010 made it to their all time list of best reviewed films, which now feels like it includes lots and lots of re-releases. Any way I look at it, I like it though because it gives me more films to add to my own lists!

Some of them really are surprizing, aren't they? The Social Network is appearing everywhere, but this has some films I've never heard of like 45365 and it's awesome to see some CanCon with Last Train Home. Impressive!
