The films of 2010, in video montage form

By Jen Chaney

As we march toward late December, it's the time of year when we begin to look back on the cinematic achievements of yore. And by "yore," I mean movies that came out way back in March.

Of course, the recent Golden Globe nominations and the rash of critics' association awards have started the process for us. But frankly, nothing does a better job of summarizing the past 365 days of Hollywood releases than a well-executed video montage.

The following montage falls into that category.

Dubbed Filmography 2010 and created by Vancouver college student Gin Ip, it features clips from virtually every film -- yes, even "Furry Vengeance" -- that showed up in theaters in recent months.

In an e-mail, Ip said she spent three months assembling clips from trailers and piecing them together.

"Film is such a fantastic storytelling medium, so when you can put multiple films together and make them work cohesively, the result can be quite revealing about the culture and society they come from," she wrote. "I set out to make something that not only showcased the great (and not so great) films of the year but also spoke to overall themes that we see in movies time and time again."

Mission accomplished. Ip made a montage that's actually better than a number of the movies in it. Watch, and enjoy.
