2010 Movies Guide

2010 Movies List - Best Movies Of 2010The best movies of 2010. It doesn’t sound like a real year does it? 2010. More like something that appears on a title card at the beginning of a sci-fi movie. It sounds like you need a crazy, wild-eyed old man and a flux capacitor to get there.

Here we’ll run down which films we were looking forward to, then close with how things stood at the end of the year. This is the best of 2010 at the movies -

20. Jackass 3D
Starring: Johnny Knoxville, Bam Margera, Ryan Dunn, Steve-O, Wee Man
Director: Jeff Tremaine
Release Date: 15th October 2010

Best Movies 2010
Expect more laughter than from any scripted movie this year. This time we’ll see 3D and the newly acquired super slow-mo camera used in ways they were never meant to be, from breaking a fish across someone’s face to slow-motion flying dildos. Steve O reportedly give up drinking for the shoot, so being fired hundreds of feet in the air in a leaking portapotty, or drinking a sweat cocktail from Preston Lacy’s gym workout should give him all the more pause for thought. The team are almost getting too old for it, but not quite.

19. Tangled
Starring: (voices) Mandy Moore, Zachary Levi, Donna Murphy
Directors: Nathan Greno, Byron Howard
Release Date: 24th November 2010

Best Movies Of 2010
Disney’s 50th animated movie and, at a rumoured $260m, the most expensive ever made. Loosely based on the German fairy tale by the Brothers Grimm, this tells the story of the magically long-haired Rapunzel who has spent her entire life in a tower, but is released by a runaway thief and given the chance to discover the world and who she really is. The CGI, modeled on the traditional look of oil paintings on canvas, looks stunning and if the co-director of Bolt can bring over that same humour it should be good fun.

18. 127 Hours
Starring: James Franco, Kate Mara, Amber Tamblyn, Clémence Poésy
Director: Danny Boyle
Release Date: 12th November 2010

2010 Best Movies
Winning a Best Director Oscar (in this case for Slumdog Millionaire) gives you the freedom to make a movie that nobody thinks is a good idea. Like, say, a one-man true story about a mountain climber who becomes trapped by a boulder in Utah and had to cut his own arm off. Sounds grim, but if anyone can turn that into a poetic ode to joy it’s director Danny Boyle. James Franco is the only actor on screen for almost the entire duration, so expect something special from him.


17. The Book of Eli
Starring: Denzel Washington, Gary Oldman, Mila Kunis
Directors: Albert & Allen Hughes
Release Date: 15th January 2010

movies in 2010
You didn’t know you wanted a post-apocalyptic showdown between Denzel Washington and Gary Oldman, but the guys that made Menace II Society did, so they went ahead and made The Book of Eli for you. It’s about, naturally, the titular book, a tome that may be the key to man’s salvation. Denzel defends the book, Oldman does the opposite. Comic Book artist Chris Weston did design work for the film, and says on his blog that “you’ll get to see Denzel Washington kick serious arse in this film… ‘Man on Fire’ is a mere taster compared to the righteous vengeance he rains down on the scum in this film”. Sold.

16. Kick-Ass
Starring: Aaron Johnson, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Chloë Moretz, Nicolas Cage
Director: Matthew Vaughn
Release Date: 16th April 2010

top movies in 2010
A superhero dramedy, based on the Mark Millar graphic novels, which was made outside the studio system. What that means is – no studio notes, no committees, no dumbing down, it can be as edgy as it damn well likes. And this story of what would happen if an ordinary teenager became a superhero, one with no powers, and went up against the mob, has considerable style to go along with it. Add to that a much-hyped Nicolas Cage performance that doesn’t feel like he’s selling out, and you’ve got a breath of fresh air all round.

    I think that you definately need to have Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief in there. Some people are saying it might overcome the Harry Potter movie in 2010. How impossible that seems, yet it might happen.=)

    I think the best 2010 movies order should go like this:

    4.Iron Man 2
    3.Robin Hood
    2.Clash of the Titans
    1.Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief=)

    I just can’t wait for The Lightning Thief to come out!!! I’ve read every book in the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series, and I know each of them from front to back!!!!

    my top 5 movies coming out in 2010:
    5. alice in wonderland
    4. the last airbender
    3. iron man 2
    2. a nightmare on elm street (i know, i know…)
    1. inception
    my opinion on what Inception is going to be about is something along the lines of “one flew over the cuckoo’s nest” or something that has too do with an asylum or generally crazy people…
