#309: The Kids Are All Right / Top 5 Films of 2010 (So Far)
It’s a cinematic Battle Royale this week as Matty “Beefcake” Ballgame and Adam “The Crying Dutchman” Kempenaar get between the Filmspotting arena ropes to offer up dueling lists of the Top 5 Films of 2010 (So Far). But wait? Is that … no … it can’t be? That’s the AV Club’s Scott Tobias’s music! And there he is! And he’s making his way to the ring to bludgeon our in-house tag-team with his own superior best of the year picks. Oh, this could get crazy folks! Almost as exciting as Matty and Adam’s takes on director Lisa Cholodenko’s "The Kids Are All Right," the new comedy starring Julianne Moore, Annette Bening and Mark Ruffalo. Oh no, Tobias has taken out both gladiators, but here comes Armond “The Assailer” White, and he’s got a metal chair! Look out Scott! Oh, the humanity. Will film criticism ever survive?
