The 10 best movies of the year 2010 consist of the movies you will be looking back on years from now with the same excitement as the first time you saw them. These are movies that succeeded in enslaving you to their rip-roaring action and gripping plot lines.

  1. "Iron Man 2" "Iron Man 2" easily flies to the top of this best movies of 2010 because it was the film that officially kicked off the summer blockbuster season. By now, Robert Downey Jr. has nearly reinvented his inconsistent career as an action hero-star, which is startling due to his medium frame.

  2. "Alice in Wonderland" "Alice in Wonderland" deserves the second-best spot on this list because of its radically new interpretation of the old fairy tale. Starring Johnny Depp and Helena Bonham Carter, this film will make you see the Queen of Hearts in a new light.

  3. "The Twilight Saga: Eclipse" Many curse "Twilight" because of its lame storyline and its actors chosen primarily for their looks instead of their supposed acting ability, but this third installment in the franchise easily is the best of the two before it, good enough to land it as number three on this list of the best movies of 2010. Look for the series's attempt at an epic showdown between Edward and Victoria the end of this movie.

  4. "The Other Guys" Towards the end of the summer, "The Other Guys" was released as a slapstick cop buddy movie, starring Mark Wahlberg and Will Ferrell. Ferrell's last few roles before this film has been utter duds, so it's more than overdue that Ferrell returns to something resembling form in this film!

  5. "Kick-Ass" This movie lands at the fifth spot on this list of the best 2010 movies because it is the realization of every comic book nerd's fantasies brought to life on the big screen. If audiences would have been capable of recognizing this movie for what it was—a send-up of comic book violence and action—then it would have done better at the box office.

  6. "Despicable Me" Despicable is anything but what "Despicable Me" is all about. It stars the voice of Steve Carell, who can be seen on TV's low-rated "The Office" and features animated minions who are the real attraction in this movie. Aside from this, eye-popping 3D animation carries the movie from start to finish.

  7. "Scott Pilgrim vs. The World" Starring Michael Cera from the filth movie known as "Superbad," this movie is all about the popular comic book and is now a cult movie. This motion picture is without a doubt made for the video game crowd because it features Cera's character who has to clash with seven other contenders to get the girl. That's like the storyline of every role-playing video game out there.

  8. "Toy Story 3" "Toy Story 3" only ranks at number eight on this list of the best movies of the year 2010 because it is a confirmation of Hollywood's irritating sequel-itis. If you can look past the fact that this is just the third installment in another long line of Hollywood serials, you will enjoy the Pixar/Disney 3D animation, for sure.

  9. "Inception" Leonardo DiCaprio may be getting older, but with age comes a seeming better choice of movie roles. In "Inception," DiCaprio takes moviegoers through a film that explores the limits of the human mind and what is fantasy versus reality. Beware the stunning ending of this film that may just shock you, for it really is a curveball of an ending.

  10. "How to Train Your Dragon" Another computer animated adventure, this movie features a heartwarming story and animation that is really worth your money. It tells the tale of a Viking teenager who makes friends with a dragon.
