#21 The Sunset Limited (2011)

The Sunset Limited is the subway train White was going to jump in front of to kill himself before Black stopped him. It begins and ends in Blacks apartment, where he has brought White back to in the hopes of talking him down from his suicidal thoughts. What follows is 90 minutes of amazing dialogue between two fantastic actors debating life, culture and religion.


#20 The Perfect Getaway (2010)

Timothy Olyphant is a cool dude. It's too bad he's in a terrible movie like The Perfect Getaway. A couple is on their honeymoon in Hawaii when a murder takes place. They think the couple they run into on the trails might be the suspects. Unfortunately, it falls apart in the third act when the twist happens. I wasn't buying Milla and Steve Zahn as a couple, either.

#19 It's Kind of a Funny Story (2010)

A kid checks himself into the psych ward at the hospital because he is having suicidal thoughts. He learns to relax and let go of the pressure put on him by his parents and school. Zach Galifianakis shows some range.

#18 Waiting for Superman (2010)

Our public education system has failed. We are near the bottom of the list world-wide in math and reading proficiency. There is too much red tape and bureaucracy in the way of meaningful change being enacted and the teachers' unions won't budge. Depressing.

#17 Faster (2010)

The Rock was set up and just got out of prison. Now he has a list and a gun, which he is using to track down the people that killed his brother and shoot them in the face.

Bonus points for not being a sequel to Tooth Fairy.
