Our Annual 10 Best List is typically the hardest list to put together each year, simply because we have a lot of critics at Pajiba; we all have different sensibilities; and we've not all seen every movie. In the end, consensus lists tend to trim around the weird, the wacky, and the obscure, and settle for something that aims to please all of our individual tastes as much as it does the collective.

This is why we now provide our individual top 10 films for your perusal. That's seven additional lists you can rip apart, mock, belittle, and occasionally even agree with. And what's fun about it is you can look over each person's Top 10 list, announce which one you most agree with, alienate the rest of us and make us feel terrible about ourselves. Meanwhile, each individual critic can now look at a colleague's list and think, "F**K! I should've put that one on my list. DAMNIT."

It really is great fun.
