Best Movies of 2010


The Top Ten

1 Inception

This not only the best movie of 2010, but the best movie of all time.

It has everything I could want in a movie- action, character building, an extremely interesting plot, a GREAT soundtrack (Time is one of my favorite songs), you have to think, and everyone can have their own opinion about how it ended, and even about what happened IN GENERAL. Someone could think the ending was a dream, or the whole movie was a dream, or certain parts were, or that the movie wasn't an inception of Fisher, but on Cobb himeslf. Words cannot express how much I love it.

Inception is best in many ways. Inception is one of my favorite movies of all time. - Badabooo2

Holy Cow, that movie was a classic! Never for even a single second did I feel bored, I was hooked, I didn't even get up to pee after the interval (poor me, I had a hard time :P) Leo DiCaprio's really changed his Titanic image, he ROCKS... and of course, Chris Nolan makes the best movies, the Dark Knight, Batman Begins et al... - JesusOfSuburbia07

A movie about a dream? Coolness! This movie is also pretty confusing too. The plot is awesome and clever. Who knew they had the ability to make a better movie of 2010 than Toy Story 3, let alone completely BLOW IT AWAY?

Nolan+Zimmer+Leo = Awesomeness

2 Toy Story 3

great movie because it reminds me of when I was a kid, alice in wonderland sucks badly, I hate Johnny Depp. - dragon13304

Best toy story needs to be number 1! I also hate Alice in wonderland. (way to many advertisements) - carvandog

Number 1 for sure, and Ironman 2 shouldn't be 3 and Alice n Wonderland should definitely not be 1! - roblist

One of the last years where the best movies list weren't flooded with superhero movies. - B1ueNew

3 How to Train Your Dragon

What grabs me about this film is that even though it is technically a fantasy, I can't help but get the feeling that everything I'm seeing really happened at some point in history. And not in a dull, preachy way. On the contrary, there's never a dull moment in the film. The relationship between man and beast has never been told in a more beautiful, yet surprisingly realistic way. My favorite movie of all time. Bottom line, it deserves to be higher than number 16.

Why is this so low? This movie had an amazing soundtrack, really awesome graphics, great voice actors, the list could go on forever. This movie does not deserve to be so low. It should be at least in the top ten, this movie deserves to be number one.

How to Train Your Dragon is on its way to becoming the most epic animated movie franchise ever.

Oh. My. God. Only 15th? I'm such a fan of this movie that I don't even know what to say. The soundtrack is considered by me as the greatest work of music ever--it really is great--and the film was stunning, grabbing, HILARIOUS, and awesomely awesomified with bucketfuls of awesomely awesomed awesome. WATCH IT TO SEE! HTTYD2 is coming out in 2 months and I absolutely cannot wait!

Awesome movie, one of Disney's best

Maybe the best ending in any Disney movie - Ajkloth


It's an awful and plain overrated movie what is it doing on here?

Shut up you goon! Just because the main character of a Disney film is a girl doesn't mean it is bad, besides I am a girl. - Badabooo2

5 Despicable Me

What? This is #18? This should be in the top ten!

One of the funniest movies I have seen in a while!

6 Scott Pilgrim vs. the World

I'm so glad this movie exists I watched it few days ago it was awesome scot pilgrim is amazing Ramona flowers is bad ass knives chau was cute and Ramona seven evil ex's were awesome my favourite is Matthew Patel I love scot pilgrim check it out if you haven't seen it

This should be higher on the list! Accurate actors, ingenius writing, and following the source material accurately.

7 Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 1

Wasn't too sure about splitting the book into two movies. However it actually works.

In my mind, Harry potter was the only film series that pulled off the "split the last book into 2 parts" thing close to perfectly! - SidneyHando

How is Percy Jackson, a forgettable seen it all film, above this film which was dark and haunting - idontknow

I hate the plot
And the acting

8 The Social Network

Love this movie... the writing is so fantastic, almost every word spoken out of the characters' mouths is brilliantly thought out

Seriously.. This needs to be higher.. It's definitely better than the expendables

Best movie of 2010, great plot and acting and everything

9 Iron Man 2

Wow Iron man, the coolest superhero in the history of marvel, the same hero with a better superhero-suit.

Terrible sequel and the worst movie of the Marvel Cinematic Universe who put this on here?

Very underrated.

10 Black Swan

Best movie ever? Why is this not higher, a fantastic use of the media of film to show an insight into somebody with a slowly distorted sense of reality

Truly the best film I have ever seen. I related to Nina on a level that I never have with a movie character. A masterpiece in every way.

This film was a bit of a Red shoes rip off, but it was still the best film of the year. Darren aronofsky is a fantastic director, this is not his best work, but this movie and inception were the best of the year (with shutter island coming in third. ) it really should be a lot higher.

The Contenders

11 Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lightning Thief

This movie is absolute crap. I absolutely love the books but this movie was crap.

I've seen this movie like 1000 times - Ajkloth

12 Kick-Ass

It's like crack it's addicting and makes you want more! Awesome movie with awesome violence, funny jokes, suspense, and anything you would want in a movie.

surprised me in every way, better than all expectations a new kind of a comic book movie that has it all - MatrixGuy

In reality, yeah its inception. but this one deserves a boost to get top 10 creds

13 Easy A
14 Megamind

Best DreamWorks movie ever!

15 The King's Speech
16 127 Hours

This movie has great soundtrack it should get an Oscar and good performance by James Franco. Too bad he didn't win for Best Actor

Come on people. This is ridiculous. James Franco was so good in this incredibly directed film, I can't believe this isn't number 1.

17 Alice in Wonderland


Yes, I love Johnny Depp. Is this a Tim Burton film, by the way? I'd like to know.

18 Diary of a Wimpy Kid


It’s the beat

19 Shrek Forever After

Dude I can't believe it. This Movie Was Awesome. Love Shrek So Much. Awesome Movie Series. I Like This One Too.

I always liked this like I'm 13 year old dude and I liked shrek and Toy Story I HATE that wonderland movie it sucks

20 The Fighter
21 Tron: Legacy
22 Shutter Island
23 Predators

Better than the first my favorite in the series

The matrix dude was in the movie

Predator is a legendary sci-fic creature.Better than alien I think

24 Grown Ups

Why the hell is this not first? Isn't adam sandler's amazing comedy, hilarious plot and just all-round laughs not enough for you? Greedy people...

25 The Other Guys
26 True Grit

What? This was much better then Shrek forever after or Alice In Wonderland. In fact its better then any of the movies on this list!

27 The Book of Eli

If your name is Eli, like me, you automatically like this here movie. You know why? Because this here movie will make you shat your pants.
