The 2010 books/movies/stuff post - sticky  
Last year it was 61 movies and 41 books. Let's see how it goes this one, where I'll hopefully reach 50 books and 100 movies...

Rating system, same as last year:

01/10 > utterly devastating
02/10 > bad
03/10 > disappointing
04/10 > half-hearted
05/10 > average
06/10 > okay
07/10 > good
08/10 > very good
09/10 > awesome
10/10 > excellent

* > re-watch or re-read
