"If you like movies, the sheer range of available titles and ways to watch them could be intoxicating -- and maddening.
The scale of new releases means a conventional top ten list can't really grapple with the full landscape. You need a bigger list, one that makes room for blockbusters and smaller movies that might've fallen through the cracks. (We also have genre-specific lists for horror, action, comedy, and science-fiction if the offerings below don't quite scratch the movie itch you have.) In a hectic year, these were the movies we escaped into."
