2010 has been a great year for Hollywood movies. There have been so many good movies that I m finding it difficult to pick. But I want to blog about movies so here are my favorite movies from this year –

Inception

If you have been a regular reader of my blog, I won’t have to tell you how much I loved this movie. I have not only raved about this movie in my review but it has made into my Top 20 Favorite movies of all time. This movie is a master piece from Leonardo DiCaprio and Christopher Nolan. An awesome movie and a must watch for any and everybody.

The Social Network

This movie came so close to being my most favorite movie of the year because it’s that brilliant. I have already said so much about it here. But will again say that as soon as I review my Top 100 List (which will be soon) I m going to put it there because it deserves to be there 110%.

Toy Story 3

I love love love love this movie. This is one of the best animation movies ever made. The movie is just amazing and it’s flawless. I so wish that they make Toy Story 4… I mean, Can you get ever of this lovely, brilliant, funny, heart warming, awesome animation movies?

Shutter Island

Another one of Leonardo’s movie that I loved watching this year. The acting, the plot, and the direction everything about it is so brilliant. And the last line of the movie is my most favorite line. Watch this one if you either like Leo or good thrillers.

Letters to Juliet

This movie is just so ‘Awwww’ and more ‘Awwww’. At the end of the movie I felt as if this movie was made for the hopeless romantic me, as everything I want and like is in it. Its mushy, it has the concept of true love, a good looking guy, destiny, sweet and cute romance, comedy, climbing balcony’s and not to forget my ultimate fantasy. What is it you ask? Well my fantasy is going to a strange land and falling slowly in love with a total perfect stranger who is of course a foreigner. I know this will never come true but a girl can dream na :P. And oh, the beauty of Italy is so very visible in this movie.

Shrek Forever After or Shrek 4

The final movie of the Shrek Series so I had to watch it even though I dint like the 3rd one that much. But I m really glad to have seen this movie because it’s as good as the 1st. The donkey and his witty dialogues are back. The story is brilliant and concept of True Love’s Kiss is back again. I did miss puss  as he isn’t as prominent but still a high leap from the 3rd installment.

Despicable Me

The best animations to me have come from Pixar and Dream Works. But Despicable Me comes from none and it’s not even a Disney Movie but has everything that a good animation movie needs to have. A heart warming story, humor and the music are what appealed to me most in the movie.

How to Train Your Dragon

One more animation movie of this year that I loved. I fell in love with the Kid and the dragon. The friendship show between them is the best thing in this movie.

The Karate Kid

Can you believe it I had never seen a Jackie Chan movie before this? I do like him but somehow I preferred watching the Jackie Chan cartoon show than his movies. Anyways, this is the 1st movie and I have to say that this movie is brilliant! But the movie belongs to Jaden Smith as much as Jackie Chan.

The Other Guys

The movie that took me totally by surprise. When I started to watch the movie I dint expect it to be even ok let alone good. But it was great. The best comedy movie I have seen this year. The chemistry between Mark and Will is amazing and the high point of the movie.

As many good movies there have been, there have been movies that I dint like much or felt disappointed with and here are the not-s0-favorite- movies

Alice in Wonderland


It’s not a bad movie. Its good and actually I like it. But it wasn’t as good as I expected it to be. You see, I had very high expectations as it has two of my favorite actors Johnny Depp and Anne Hathaway. Whereas Johnny Depp was good Anne’s acting I thought was over the top. Somehow, not as good as I thought it would be.

Valentines Day

I had so many expectations from this movie. I means isn’t it given when you have such an awesome star cast. And also it’s supposed to be a romantic comedy my favorite genre with all mushy tales but I dint find it all that great. It was ok but nothing more.

Sex and the City 2

I have never seen Sex and City TV show actually. I only saw the 1st movie and found it ok, so probably I should have never bothered to see this one. But I heard  so much about it that I saw it out of curiosity. But I wish I hadn’t… it wasn’t good. And I wonder why do people like Sex and the City so much.

Eclipse

I don’t like Twilight movies. I like the books and find the movies very disappointing. But I had heard that the movie Eclipse was good and also Eclipse is my most favorite book from the series so I watched this movie. My opinion on this movie is same the others it’s not worth a watch. But if anyone of you likes the movies, can you please explain me why? It’s like a mystery to me… really.

Eat Pray Love

This is the 1st Julia Roberts movie that I hated. Not once during the movie did I feel anything for the character. When I 1st saw the movie I thought… ok, may be a bad adaptation of the book but after reading the book I find the movie less torturous.

I know 2010 has been great for movies and I m sure that 2011 wont be any less. Here are few 2011 movies I m waiting for –

The Rite

Gnomeo and Juliet

Apollo 18

Jane Eyre

Scream 4

Pirates of Caribbean 4

Winnie the pooh

The girl with dragon tattoo

The hangover 2

Kung Fu Panda 2

Sherlock Holmes 2

I hope you guys had a very good New Year’s celebration :).

  1. Watch George Clooney’s The American and Natalie Portman’s Black Swan. You might want to add them to your ‘best of 2010′ list. They are absolutely brilliant.
    Either ways, have a great year ahead! Enjoy! :)

  2. Agree with almost all on the fav list – except Letters to Juliet & The Other Guys (haven’t seen them) & Shrek (disappointed, I loved 1 & 2 the most!)

    I LOVED How to Train a Dragon!!!!! It was brilliant! And SO NOT clichéd! :) :)

    One movie I would have put on my fav movies of 2010 list was Avator – solely for the brilliant animation.. It was beyond amazing! :)

    Cheers,
    Annie.
    P.S: Making lists is fun aint it? 😀

  3. My faves are Inception, Shutter Island and the Social Network! 😀 Good round-up!

  4. Nice list.. Yet to watch some of the movies in the list..

    Inception, Shutter Island, Karate Kid, How To TYD are my favourites too.. :)

    Im also waiting for Pirates and the hangover.. :)

  5. Glad to be on ur blogroll 😉 Thank u :)

  6. My favs are social network, Inception and Alice in wonderland… :)

  7. Most of my favorites are on the list. I agree with you on Alice in Wonderland and Eat, Pray, Love and also Eclipse.

    I expected a lot from Alice in Wonderland, esp Depp. He was fine as ever; but something lacked in there.

    I would also add “Clash of the Titans” and “The Expendables” Both were torture.

    I would say The A-Team was ok; though I dont like action.

    I am very much waiting for Pirates 4. And will watch the Gulliver’s travels sometime this week :)

  8. First of all wishing you a very happy new year 2011 Harini :) Have a wonderful year ahead :)

    I have watched very few hollywood movies this year :( And Inception is one of my favorite. you know about it :)

    Social network is another brilliant movie :) I liked it and loved the performances of all of them. Amazing..

    Toy Story 3 – Amazingly funny :) Loved the Buzz dance to core :) Me too want Toy Story 4 :)

    How to train your dragon – thats a good one :) Loved the way he interacts with that nightfire dragon.. lovely portrayal of love :)

    Karate kid – cool entertaining movie.. but not a memorable one…
    u should start watching Jackie Chan movie.. they will be superb.. start with Rush hour :)

    Others I haven’t watched :(

    In 2011.. the only movie I am expecting is Kung-fu Panda 2..
    and POC – 4 just for Jhonny Depp../. I think its just marketing ploy of Disney.. nothing else..

  9. Good list. Watched some of these already. But always good to keep list handy for next movie

  10. aww..
    letters to Juliet..
    amanda seyfried is so beautiful :)

    and yea…Social network is extremely good.
    Sex n the City was shit..
    I hated it..and moved out in the lobby in the interval..

  11. cool list! :) I did not watch “The other guys” though, thought I would not like it. Now that you say it is good, will watch it sometime.. I havent seen Karate Kid too.. dont quite like Jackie Chan kinda action.. Good that I did not watch SAC2.. I had a feeling I wouldnt like it :)
    Now I know why you liked Letters to Juliet so much.. I loved the movie too.. want to read the book!
    For me POC4 is the most awaited movie of 2011!

  12. Loved loved loved loved Inception :)

  13. Toy story 3 was one movie that was played in my household the maximum no of times last year :D. The three of us loved the movie alike! I loved Shutter Island too. Inception just flew over my head! Couldnt make a thing out of it! My husband still keeps raving about it though.

    SATC2 an absolute trash!

    Great compilation, Harini :)

  14. Looking at the no of animated movies in the top list, I don’t know why I don’t watch animated movies at all! Need to come out of that mental block. Thanks for the first list. I now know which movies i ought to be watching :)

    Destination Infinity

  15. My favorites are Inception, The Social Network and Shutter Island. :)Have yet to see the remaining movies.

  16. Movies was something which was not part of my 2010. I saw only two last year.. but Inception was one of them..so not too bad is it :)
