    All good choices of course, but for me, The Social Network stood out. Just the pitch made this movie seem iffy at best. But Sorkin was able to take all this and bring forward the human drama, striving to succeed, jealousy, betrayal, and success and make one of the most riveting movies I’ve seen in the past few years.

    I do not like the wins by the following films: Slumdog Millionaire, Precious, The Departed, LOTR, and I am also part of the group that found No Country for Old Men very overrated.

    I am indifferent on The Descendants and Brokeback Mountain.

    For me, it is a very easy choice.

    The Social Network was, indeed, a sketchy idea but it became a modern day classic.
    Close behind is Sideways and then a distant third is The Pianist.

    This is a really tough choice. Most of these films did a great job of adapting from the source, and in some cases created a film which is better at rendering the story than the novel/short story.

    I wont vote for TSN, which can bite my ass. And The Descendants, is also out. Eliminating The Departed and Slumdog too.
    It’s between BBM and TLoTR.

    The only one of these I have yet to see is Brokeback Mountatin. 

    Ranking these, I’d go…
    1. The Social Network (very solid first place for me)
    2. Slumdog Millionaire (I had high expectations for this, as the book is one of my favorites, and I was not disappointed.)
    3. The Departed
    4. No Country for Old Men
    5. Sideways
    6. The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King 
    7. The Descendants
    8. Precious: Based on the Novel “Push” by Sapphire
    9. The Pianist
    10. Brokeback Mountain

    All of these films are incredibly writen, regardless of my personal rakings.
