Even though "The King's Speech" won the Academy Award for Best Picture of 2010, many people have their own ideas on what were the best movies that came out in 2010. People are passionate and opinionated about movies; what one person thinks is brilliant another may think is an epic fail. Here, finally, is the definitive list on what the five best movies of 2010 were.
Inception” explored the reality beyond reality and took you along for the ride. Did the top stop spinning at the end? Was Leonardo DiCaprio’s character of Dom Cobb even real? Movies like “Inception” allow endless debate on what you really watched and that’s what puts it on the list.
Disney animated series of films was perhaps the best; that’s a nearly impossible statement to make about sequels. What has set the “Toy Story” series apart from other animated films is that there isn’t always the big feel-good ending and that’s the case in “Toy Story 3.” Comedy and adventure are there in spades, sure, but there also is the element of honest emotion that touches the heart. Ultimately the story is about love and not about a bunch of old, forgotten toys and that’s why the series has worked so well and makes this list of best movies of 2010.
“True Grit" If you don’t like a good Western movie, that’s downright un-American of you. Okay, perhaps not, but no other country is identified with a genre of movie like the United States is by the Western. “True Grit” may catch some flak from John Wayne fans who think it’s nothing but a remake of the classic Wayne version, but the 2010 version is just a different interpretation of Charles Portis’s novel of the same name. Young Hailee Steinfeld is a revelation as youthful firebrand Mattie Ross and Jeff Bridges’s take on the iconic character of US Marshall Rooster Cogburn would probably make “The Duke” himself proud. This is truly one of the best films of 2010.
