Random Villains Top 10 Films Of 2010

Well, another year of movies is just about finished up. Now, granted, I have not seen EVERY movie that came out this year. I have sadly not had the chance to see The Social Network yet. So when you see that not that, or some other deserving movie isn't on the list, don't flip out with "OMG NO BLACK SWAN?!?1" I just haven't had time to see everything. So, this is...


10. Jackass 3-D
Easily the funniest movie of the year. And at the same time did a great job of utilizing the 3D element.

9. The Book Of Eli
Had my doubts on this one, but wound up enjoying it quite a bit. One of the best post apocalyptic movies I've seen in quite awhile.

8. The A Team
This got bashed on all over by reviews but I loved it. I was a huge fan of the series as a kid and felt each person nailed the characters. I loved the backstory, and seeing why exactly BA is afraid of flying.

7. The Expendables
It was nice seeing a real action movie in theaters again. Stallone may be getting old as the hills, but he still has IT.

6. Inception
This movie took a while to grow on me. So many holes in it, but at the end of the day, I enjoyed this movie.

5. Frozen
Had some doubts with this, Adam Green is a good director but I'm not too big of a fan of Hatchet. Frozen is easily one of the best horror movies to come along in quite awhile. Very suspenseful and the Making Of on the DVD is worth watching as well.

4. Kick-Ass
I was quite surprised by this. I had read the comic so was looking forward to this but it all felt strange. What I didn't end up liking in the movie, I liked in the book, and what I didn't like in the book, I liked in the movie. I was also expecting maybe a bit more comedy from it, but it wound up being pretty serious and emotional at some times.

3. Tron Legacy
Holy crap did I love Tron as a kid. I would watch the VHS all the time at my parents video store. And am lucky enough to have the elusive Tron 25th Anniversary DVD. When I saw Flynns Arcade in this movie, it gave the inner child in me goosebumps. Was everything I had hoped for.

2. Toy Story 3
I don't understand Pixar. It's like after they made Ratatouille all they have tried to do is make you cry as much as possible. If you didn't choke back at least a small tear and get a lump in your throat during the incinerator scene, then you have no soul.

1. Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World
I was a little wary going into this. Had never read the comics, and Michael Cera had soured on me a little after seeing Year One. But one thing had me going in to see this. Edgar Wright. Mr. Wright is currently my favorite director. He has done no wrong and has had me as a die hard fan since Shaun Of The Dead 4 times in the theater. And what I wound up seeing was what most call a love story for video game nerds. The 8 Bit Universal logo and theme going into the Zelda Link To The Past music starts off the movie and you know right away you are in for a good time. I think, even if I did manage to see EVERY movie this year, Scott Pilgrim would still come out as #1.
