If you are looking for top movies you are sure to come across Another Year in your searches.
This is one of those movies that seems to be about ordinary people and ordinary lives but demonstrates how no one’s life is really ordinary. It is gentle and sweet yet it is so much more than just a feel good movie. The focus of the movie is an older couple that is looking forward to retirement and enjoying their empty nest.
Over the course of the movies, several interesting characters drift in and out, like Ken, the alcoholic friend of Tom and Mary, the divorcee that seems fine on the outside but on the inside is totally dependent on others. This is one of the best movies of the year and you’ll surely agree when you’ve seen it for yourself.
Here’s our top 10 of the Best Hollywood Movies in 2010 that I enjoyed watching.
1 – Inception
“In a world where technology exists to enter the human mind through dream invasion, a highly skilled thief is given a final chance at redemption which involves executing his toughest job to date: Inception.”
No other movie deserves the top spot. Christopher Nolan turned out one of the best of all time. The mystery and sci-fi were so well tied in that the audience came back to the theaters for more and more. The phenomenal star cats and super talented director made the movie number one.
2 – Iron Man 2
“Because of his superhero alter ego, Tony Stark must contend with deadly issues involving the government, his own friends and new enemies.”
Robert Downey Jr. provides another great performance in a role that seems to be tailor made for him. The sequel was bigger than the original and with the angry Mickey Rourke and Scarlett Johansson in the fray this one got even better.
3 – Toy Story 3
“The toys are mistakenly delivered to a day-care center instead of the attic right before Andy leaves for college, and it’s up to Woody to convince the other toys that they weren’t abandoned and to return home.”
The heartwarming adventures of the toys continued to win over parents and kids alike. Every sequel of the movie continues to be better than the previous one and his one was no exception. An instant classic!
4 – Tron Legacy
“The son of a virtual world designer goes looking for his father and ends up inside the digital world that his father designed. He meets his father’s creation turned bad and a unique ally who was born inside the digital domain of The Grid.”
Tron was ahead of its time. 2010 was the correct year. Combine the vision, superior GFX and heightened fanboy expectations with the amazing Daft Punk score and you have a winner.
5 – Scott Pilgrim vs. The World
“Scott Pilgrim must defeat his new girlfriend’s seven evil exes in order to win her heart.”
The movie was based on one of the best Indie comics of all times and did not disappoint. It was a great mix of love, action, oddity and bizarre sequences. Michael Cera absolutely nailed this one.
6 – The Expendables
“A team of mercenaries head to South America on a mission to overthrow a dictator.”
An explosive star cast consisting of Sylvester Stallone, Jet Li, Jason Statham, Dolph Lundgren, ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin, Mickey Rourke, Arnold Schwarzenegger. Add in a cameo by Bruce Willis. Action fans were crawling on their knees for this one. They were getting spoilt rotten.
7 – Ridley Scott’s Robin Hood
“In 13th century England, Robin and his band of marauders confront corruption in a local village and lead an uprising against the crown that will forever alter the balance of world power.”
The man behind classics such as Alien, Blade Runner and Gladiator returned to the screen with Robin Hood. His favorite star Russell Crowe also joins in to create a saga of the enigmatic legend of Robin Hood. It was a memorable take on Robin Hood.
8 – Alice in Wonderland
“19-year-old Alice returns to the magical world from her childhood adventure, where she reunites with her old friends and learns of her true destiny: to end the Red Queen’s reign of terror.”
Tim Burrton’s Alice in Wonderland looked out of the world and stunning. Helena Bonham Carter as the Red Queen and Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter put in great performances to make the movie one of the best of 2010.
9 – Clash of the Titans
“The mortal son of the god Zeus embarks on a perilous journey to stop the underworld and its minions from spreading their evil to Earth as well as the heavens.”
The classic sword and sandal classic flick was remade using modern CGI. The director did a fantastic job of creating the underworld and the heavens while the newcomers Sam Worthington and Gemma Arterton made the roles of Perseus and Io believable.
10 – The Social Network
“A chronicle of the founding of Facebook, the social-networking Web site.”
The gripping tale of how the most dominant social network came into being makes for a riveting and engaging watch. The focus on ideas, feelings and people made this one memorable.
