I like to spend some time really thinking over my top ten lists because I don’t want to be that person that just shoves every single Oscar nominated movie on the list without sprinkling in a few favorites. I have no problem recognizing strong directing and performing, but I also like to mention a few personal favorites that I enjoyed more than others. It all comes down to personal preference, replay value and overall scoring. Sure, there might be a few movies that I rated higher than something that barely makes my list, but that’s because I might have enjoyed a movie a lot more and gone back to revisit it time and time again, despite its lower rating due to a few acting missteps or weaker story."
