The Social Network 2010, PG-13)
Wow!! This film is absolutely perfect! There are so few words to describe the brilliance of this film. The Social Network is a film that defines a generation; it is so real, smart, fresh....truly a product of it's time!
Toy Story 3 2010, G)
This film is absolutely perfect! Perfect not only in the way it was the perfect ending to the Toy Story trilogy, but perfect as a film in general. Every second was so deep and meaningful beyond belief, it's means much more than just the animation. Brilliant!
The King's Speech 2010, PG-13)
Absolutely fantastic film! The story is so touching, and the actors truly portray the characters to perfection. Colin Firth, Geoffrey Rush, Helena Bonham Carter, Guy Pearce, they all deliver such strong and realistic performances; the audience simply falls in love with each character, making the story that much more touching. Colin Firth really gives a brilliant performance. He really does a good job of showing the conflict and emotions of the character. I really loved the scene where he cries......great acting. A great performance; I can't wait to see him holding the Oscar for Best Actor, he deserves it.
Animal Kingdom 2010, R)
Black Swan 2010, R)
Yes! Another another amazing film from director, Darren Aronofsky. For me, Black Swan is the perfect example of a modern classic film. A true piece of art, astounding in so many ways. Immediately after the opening credits, the film left a tense, uneasy feeling in my gut. The atmosphere was established, and I was instantly at the edge of my seat, knowing that something was off. I was immediately taken into the film. The brilliant musical score was very effective in establishing the dark tones, as was the perfect cinematography. I loved the use of color in the film; blacks and whites dominated the color palette of the film, establishing the dark tone, but also to further emphasizing the idea of good vs. evil. The acting was excellent; stunning performances by supporting cast members Barbara Hershey, Winona Ryder, Vincent Cassel, and especially Mila Kunis, who is really showing herself to be a talented young actress with a bright future. Natalie Portman gives the best performance though. In fact, it's the best of her career...she is this film. She portrayed every emotion with a level of maturity and grace that I have never seen before. Her character, Nina, changes so much as the film goes on, but Portman handles the role perfectly. It truly was a brilliant performance, worthy of every praise it received. She more than definitely deserved her Oscar for Best Actress! The film builds to a trippy, but amazing ending; the last 40 minutes of the film were pure gold. Some of the best film scenes I have ever seen, everything came together in a satisfying fashion.
Inception 2010, PG-13)
My mind has been blown by Memento, The Prestige, The Dark Knight, and now....Inception. Easily alongside the top films of 2010, this film is truly unbelievable in every way. Basically, if you have not seen this film, you have waited way to long, as I did. You must see this film for yourself! There is so much to be said of it, but so few words that can explain it.
The Fighter 2010, R)
The Fighter was the one movie that I knew I had to see in 2010. My two favorite actors are Amy Adams and Christian Bale, so I knew I had to see this film to see them together. As the release date came closer, and as more and more Oscar buzz flowed, I knew this was going to be a great one. It is. This film is easily among the 5 best films of the year, if not the best.
Blue Valentine 2010, R)
Rabbit Hole 2010, PG-13)
I thought this was excellent! I was very surprised by this film; I expected it to be good, but it was better than what I imagined. Nicole Kidman received an Oscar nomination for he role...I originally just assumed the Academy threw her in the lineup simply because she's a star and generally good in all of her films. I was completely wrong, as I was with the film, also. This film was great...one of my favorites of 2010!
Tangled 2010, PG)
Kick-Ass 2010, R)
How to Train Your Dragon 2010, PG)
The Town 2010, R)
Winter's Bone 2010, R)
True Grit 2010, PG-13)
Not was I was expecting. First off, this is a great film! The Coen Brothers really did a good job of adapting a remake with an identity all its own.
127 Hours 2010, R)
An absolutely fantastic film! A powerful, touching, and inspirational film that is truly one of a kind. Fantastically shot and brilliantly directed by Danny Boyle, this film captures what I thought could never be an intriging story. I was so wrong! This film delivers in so many ways that I never imagined. It is undoubtably worthy of all the praise it received. This film would have had zero effectiness had it not been for the Oscar nominated performance by James Franco. He brilliantly portrays the trapped Aron Ralston as he cycles through countless emotions. His talent and his maturity as an actor shines here; this performance solidifies him as one the best young actors today. The film also has great cinemtography and a brilliant musical score by A.R. Rahman.
Buried 2010, R)
I loved it! What a total surprise, I mean I've heard mostly good things about this movie so I sort of expected a pretty decent film, but I was not expecting such a thrilling experience. First off, Ryan Reynolds is brilliant as Paul Conroy, he delivers the best performance of his career by far. He can act y'all! The performance is strikingly similar to James Franco's in 127 Hours, and in my opinion, it's as good. He completely surprised me with this film. Second, the writing is very sharp, emotional, intense, and effective; it truly adds to this film in many ways. Lastly, the direction and editing by director Rodrigo Cortes is absolutely fantastic! He did some very interesting shots from within the coffin that make this film not seem as claustrophobic as it really was. Yes, this film is nothing more than Ryan Reynolds trapped in a box, but at the same time it's so much more, so don't let that keep you from seeing this. Not only did I experience what Paul Conroy was feeling, but my mind was thinking and imagining what was happening outside the box. I really liked this brilliant little film and I cannot recommend it enough.
The Secret World of Arrietty 2012, G)
Easy A 2010, PG-13)
Surprisingly a great comedy!
Let Me In 2010, R)
The Ghost Writer 2010, PG-13)
The Ghost Writer is one of those films that when I saw it, I simply felt it was good. I saw it in early March, and as more great films have been released, this film has always remained in my mind. I think it's very good as opposed to just okay. It's not brilliant, but it's still is a strong film and one of the better movies of the year. Very intense and it had some good performances. The ending really was a shocker to me....check this film out!
Scott Pilgrim vs. the World 2010, PG-13)
Wow! What a great movie. Comedies like these tend to not settle well for me, so I was very skeptical about this one. I gave it a shot and it did not dissapoint. I absolutely loved this film!
Waiting for Superman 2010, PG)
The Illusionist (L'illusionniste) 2010, PG)
The Way Back 2010, PG-13)
Monsters 2010, R)
The Kids Are All Right 2010, R)
I liked the film. The performances are great (Annette Bening especially) and the pacing was good, but I think this film is very overrated. This was not the cutting-edge family drama I was expecting. Bening completely deserved her Oscar nomination, but that should have been the film's only nomination.
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 1 2010, PG-13)
Shutter Island 2010, R)
Pretty good. I enjoyed it alot, but I think it's very overrated. It had some very good, thrilling moments, but overall it was predictable. I had the ending figured out after the first 90 minutes. Some people will try to sqeeze this movie into "The Best of 2010" category, but for me it just doesn't deliver. Good but not what I was expecting!
Hot Tub Time Machine 2010, R)
Unstoppable 2010, PG-13)
The Crazies 2010, R)
Red 2010, PG-13)
This movie is so fun, so cool, and so awesome! From the moment I saw the first trailer of this film, I knew it would be one heck of a fun ride. I loved it! Bruce Willis, Morgan Freeman, Helen Mirren, John Malkovich....the big star lineup of actors was enough to get me interested in this film. It's so awesome to see them do these kinds of roles, the roles that actors of their caliber and age don't normally do. The audience can see how much the fun the cast is having so they too take part in the fun. Red is action packed the whole 2 hours. The fighting and shooting...it was perfect! I really couldn't have asked for a more entertaining 2 hours. I highly recommend it!
Iron Man 2 2010, PG-13)
Secretariat 2010, PG)
Very good film! Formulaic, but extremely well done. A good live-action film by Disney Pictures, they've had some stinkers, but this was is very good. Cheesy...perhaps a little dramatic and over-the-top, but the story was good and executed brilliantly.
The Book of Eli 2010, R)
Despicable Me 2010, PG)
Mother and Child 2010, R)
Megamind 2010, PG)
Salt 2010, PG-13)
This movie really surprised me; it's much better than what I thought it would be. I went into this movie not really knowing what it would be like, but it turned out to be great. This is an action packed thriller that will have you on the edge of your seat the whole time. Is it predictable? A little, but there are just enough surprises to keep you thinking. It's not the most realistic story, but it works for the type of movie it is. Many people probably will rip all over this film because it's not perfect, but it does it's job, and I see absolutely nothing wrong with that. It is more than entertaining! I highly recommend this movie.
Piranha 3-D 2010, R)
Tron Legacy 2010, PG)
I thought this was great! 2010 was a good year for Disney...Toy Story 3, Wonderland, Secretariat, Tangled, Tron Legacy. They had alot on their plate, and Tron Legacy did not disappoint!
Hereafter 2010, PG-13)
I Love You Phillip Morris 2009, R)
Morning Glory 2010, PG-13)
Love and Other Drugs 2010, R)
Love and Other Drugs lacks a true identity; it has the sex/nudity of a raunchy teen comedy, but the emotion/drama of a romantic dramedy. Respectable as it is, the film never finds the balance that humors, as well as touches the audience. Gyllenhaal and Hathaway are terrific, they both give solid performances. The rest of the film is really likable as well, except Josh Gad, who plays Jake Gyllenhaal's brother. The character was completely useless and irritating. Other than that, I thought this was a good film despite it not being as unique as it tried to be.
The Switch 2010, PG-13)
Interesting to see only 44% of users liked this? I personally enjoyed it a lot more than I thought I would. A formulaic rom-com, but the film has some more serious undertones as well. I cared for the characters of The Switch more than those of other films of the genre. I recommend this if you haven't considered it already.
Knight & Day 2010, PG-13)
Overall, a decent summer action/comedy movie. Forgettable in many ways, but the stylized action sequences were really nice, and there were a few humorous moments that I really liked. I'm not a big Tom Cruise or Cameron Diaz fan, but I thought they worked well together. I really liked the supporting cast though...Peter Sarsgaard, Viola Davis, and Paul Dano. I would have liked to see them with more screen time. Not a great movie, but I enjoyed it.
Nanny McPhee Returns 2010, PG)
The A-Team 2010, PG-13)
The Other Guys 2010, PG-13)
Centurion 2010, R)
An okay film that I did like, but it was a bit too predictable and gory. Fassbender is good as always. I would have preferred more action over gore; gore is fine, but the battle sequences were hardly battle scenes at all, just blood. I loved the tone and setting of the film. Reminded me a lot of The Eagle which I also liked.
Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time 2010, PG-13)
Burlesque 2010, PG-13)
Well...the third installment of the Narnia Saga is a decent addition, at best. It lacked in almost every area that first two films succeeded at. Do not get me wrong, I really enjoyed the film as a whole, but do not be expecting a film similar to the first two.
To Save a Life 2010, PG-13)
Leap Year 2010, PG)
Clash of the Titans 2010, PG-13)
The Sorcerer's Apprentice 2010, PG)
The Expendables 2010, R)
The Last Exorcism 2010, PG-13)
I love mocumentary style films; there's something about that style of film making that's extremely interesting and appealing. Add to that a eerie setting and solid lead performances and you get a good film, right? Meh...while there are some elements of the film that I really liked, there were some inconsistencies that ultimately made this film less effective and it tried to be. There were some nice twists, but the ending didn't add up at all.
Extraordinary Measures 2010, PG)
The Twilight Saga: Eclipse 2010, PG-13)
Letters to Juliet 2010, PG)
When in Rome 2010, PG-13)
I watched this a second time and I have no idea what I saw in it the first time. Not only was the story so-so, but it wasn't even told well. The pacing was horrible! I felt like the two main characters met, then they were instantly in love, and then there was immediate conflict. Also, the supporting cast is exhausting and annoying. I hate Jon Heder! While I'll admit I liked this film the first time, it did not deliver at all the second time.
The Tourist 2010, PG-13)
Resident Evil: Afterlife 2010, R)
Grown Ups 2010, PG-13)
How Do You Know 2010, PG-13)
Killers 2010, PG-13)
Not very good, one of the worst films of 2010. What could have been a fun and charming action/comedy flick, Killers is nothing more than an awkward, careless, silly, and unbelievable film that fails miserably. Kutcher and Heigl are totally awkward, lacking chemistry, Tom Selleck and Catherine O'Hara are terribly annoying as the parents, and the entire supporting cast is strange. Skip!
You Again 2010, PG)
Horrible. You Again is an exhausting film that's nothing more than a bunch of ridiculous and implausible events sequenced together for humor, only it's never once funny. Everything about the movie, from the writing to the cast, fails miserably. Shame on whoever produced this garbage. One of the worst films of 2010.
Skyline 2010, PG-13)
There's a scene towards the end of the movie where the main character says something like this: "What are you going to do when all the blinds fall down? It's not exactly like we have a lot more bed sheets!" It was in the moment where I began shaking my head in complete dismay as to what the hell I was watching. The screenplay, the cast, the acting, everything was just terrible. The effects were the only thing going for this film, but even those were either blurry or hidden by bright lights. Skyline is horrible and one of the worst of 2010.
The Last Airbender 2010, PG)
Not good, in fact it's one of the worst movies I've seen in years. I hated it! The acting was horrible, basically every actor sucked. The script was poorly written and cheesy. The story jumped around a lot and made very little sense at times, which is strange because I was familiar with the story because I watched a little of the show. The fighting sequences were stupid. Some of the CGI was okay, but not good. I'm now a firm believer that M. Night Shyamalan will never have a comeback as this film is nothing but pure garbage. He can't handle directing a film even with good material being handed down to him. A complete shame and one of the absolute worst films of 2010. A dreadful, excruciating film to watch.
