The most memorable moment in the film – described in the book but not with dialogue.

My Top 10

  1. An Education
  2. Up in the Air
  3. A Single Man
  4. Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
  5. The Informant
  6. Precious
  7. District 9
  8. Coraline
  9. Fantastic Mr. Fox
  10. The Damned United

note:  Not the strongest Top 5 and a fairly weak second 5.  But it had a lot of solid scripts (good enough to make the list) so there’s a more sizable continuation down at the bottom. (more…)
