Peter Travers’ Best and Worst of 2010: From the Sublime (‘Social Network’) to the Ridiculous (‘Tourist’)

Merrick Morton/Columbia

The Social Network — or “The Facebook Movie,” as everyone seemed to call it — tops Peter Travers’ list of the Best Films of the Year. Travers writes that “the movie that told us who we were this year, this decade: willing slaves to technology as a substitute for direct communication.” He adds that the film uses Facebook to “hold up a mirror to the way we live now… with wit, imagination, honesty and satire so cutting it can open wounds.”

On the other hand, Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie’s “lame-ass thriller” The Tourist topped Travers’ list of the 10 Worst Movies of 2010. It unintentionally brings out some terrible aspects of our world — particularly big-budget, big-name hollowness. “Depp and Jolie hit career lows, producing the chemistry of high-fashion zombies,” Travers says, naming the film “the worst of the year, by a mile.”
