Edge of Darkness

As I expressed earlier in the week as our 2010 Year in Review began, I take it as a great honor that I am able to put together my list of the Best Films of the Year as part of my Editor’s Picks entry. And while I’m a massive fan of my own perspective and opinions, I’m an even bigger fan of the writing and ever-diverse tastes of the Film School Rejects reviewing staff. These are the folks who, through their sensational (and often divisive) review-writing, keep you coming back for more each and every day. They travel the world and brave the crowds at festivals, conventions, preview screenings and special events to bring you some of the industry’s sharpest, most honest film coverage. And I for one am honored to have them all on this team. Just as I did last year, I couldn’t wait to see which films each writer would put on their Top 5 lists as the best films of the year. And just as they did last year, they didn’t disappoint with their unique, ever-fascinating selections. So read on dear reader, as we present the crown jewel of our 2010 Year in Review: The Staff Picks.

Movie Drinking Games

Earlier this year, Mel Gibson returned to the big screen – in front of the camera, this time – with the crime thriller Edge of Darkness. If you missed this in the theater and you like Mel Gibson in full ass-kicking mode, you may want to check this out on DVD or Blu-ray. And since it’s Boston, and there’s a lot of pubs in Boston, you might just want to have a drink or two with the film.
