The 2010 Movies I’ve Seen

Oscar time again so time to wrap up my 2010 movie viewing now that most of the movies I need to see have made their way to Ohio. (I’m looking at you “The Tempest” and 3/5 of the Best Foreign Language Film nominees…) Still hoping to squeeze in “Waste Land” before Oscar night.
