1. Inception (2010)
Is Nolan a genius or what? Have you seen closely what he has been doing the last decade? This man doesn't know how to make bad movies, not only that, but also the fact that most of his movies are so psychologically charged, with a touch for human drama.

I have no problem saying that Nolan is my favorite Director for some time now and that every movie that he puts up from now are instant must-sees.

Now, Inception is everything Nolan knows how to do so far, and more... and with a high budget! TDK dealt with despair and madness, The Prestige dealt with obsession, while Batman Begins dealt with fear. Inception is about dreams and the concept of implanting an idea into a man's mind through them... Now HOW incredible is THAT??

2. Shutter Island (2010)
Martin Scorsese explores new ground with his much-well deserved favorite actor of this last decade in another movie that raised the bar of its genre. A psychological thriller disguised as a noir-film shows that Scorsese only knows how to keep getting better while trying new things. Such a great director making better and better movies is remarkable.

3. How to Train Your Dragon (2010)
This was incredible... I was speechless after watching this movie. "How to Train Your Dragon" gave me a feeling that I have never felt watching a (animated) movie before. I can't believe I went with such low expectations about this movie and ended utterly amazed. I burst into laughs and tears throughout the movie, such a rare endearing and most outstanding story.

4. Toy Story 3 (2010)
What can I say? Pixar made me tear up again... for a bunch of toys... this is ridiculous! Fantastic story once again =)

A story for kids and adults with real characters, disguised as an adventure with toys.

5. Kick-Ass (2010)
This movie was... SO FREAKING COOL! Loved the initial parody about superhero clich├ęs and the fantastic story this turned out to be!

6. Ip Man 2: Legend of the Grandmaster (2010)
One of the best martial arts movies of all time? I dunno because there is still Ip Man (2008)...

Are these movies awesome or what? Donnie Yen surpassed Jet Li in my eyes. Watch Kill Zone as well for a modern Hong Kong police story/action thriller with great choreographies as well, from the same director.

7. 127 Hours (2010)
James Franco superb performance and the intensity of the whole thing did catch me off guard. I was not expecting the movie to be so graphic, and together with the realism of the story and strong emotions, it became the most memorable movie of a good year for movies.

8. The Social Network (2010)
This movie surprised me because I thought I wasn't gonna like it. David Fincher and the fact that it was getting so much praise made me get it and watch it, and boy did I like it. Very strong performances in a somewhat unpredictable story for someone who isn't familiarized with the history behind the social network of today's generation.

9. The Fighter (2010)
Well-directed, well-performed and with a strong script. I was anticipating this movie, mostly for the great cast. The story is pretty good and Christian Bale nails his Oscar-contender role like I've never seen before.

10. Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (2010)
A pleasant surprise, this movie just invented a genre by itself. One of the most inventive and original movies I've seen recently, let alone hilarious! Most of the jokes are just too funny! Not to mention the huge entertainment value of this movie with all the fighting, romance, music, and stuff!

Seriously one of the best this year, if not just for the well-done innovation alone.

And you know what? I don't like or dislike Michael Cera, but he can act here! Hilarious stuff.

13. Black Swan (2010)
Don't ask me why, but I had HUGE expectations for this movie, I was expecting something along the lines of "among the best of the year" which wasn't... for me anyway.

Natalie Portman does shine brightly though, and I wonder if my relatively high score of the movie has something to do with the great cast.

So it's not a masterpiece, but a great movie nonetheless. The creepy atmosphere and uncertainty of what is going on with our ballerina makes it interesting until the very end.

16. The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya (2010)
Great watch! The direction was fantastic and the mystic and complexity surrounding the whole thing contributed a lot for this great experience. I'd say both seasons are essential to fully enjoy this movie with the exception of some solo episodes and some of the repeated endless eight.

Anyway, I loved the fact that this focused on Nagato (my favorite character here), and without spoiling anything, I can just say that this is a development ride concerning her character and Kyon,

Best part of the whole Suzumiya franchise, definitely.

18. The Kids Are All Right (2010)
I have one word for this: refreshing! I found cuteness and drama throughout the movie in a very interesting family story. But I still don't think this is Oscar material, which did surprise me a little.

19. The Expendables (2010)
For starters: I like Stallone as an actor/director, but I've never been that interested in his style (Rocky/Rambo/etc); I've never liked the Heroic Bloodshed that much as well, and besides Stallone and Jet Li I don't think the other main heroes of the movie are that great actors even as action stars. In spite of all that, this movie kicked so much ass that it's hard to believe Stallone could fit so much adrenaline in so many distinct action scenes throughout the movie making it one of the most entertaining movies of the year.

Some have said the movie lacks a real final boss/ending fight, I don't think that matters much when half the movie is an epic showdown! Well deserving a watch even if you don't think you will like it, because what really matters when watching something like this is kicks, big guns, explosions and badassery!
