The story of King George VI of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, his impromptu ascension to the throne and the speech therapist who helped the unsure monarch become worthy of it. (118 mins.)
Director: Tom Hooper
“ A very good, inspirational drama. I can see how it won Best Picture (even though I would have preferred the nod to go to unconventional vote, The Social Network). ” - Barloq

    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.3/10 X

Director: Lee Unkrich
“ Oh God, I cried. A great send-off for the Toys I grew up with... now pass me the tissues. ” - Barloq
 
3.
Never Let Me Go (2010)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.2/10 X  
The lives of three friends, from their early school days into young adulthood, when the reality of the world they live in comes knocking. (103 mins.)
Director: Mark Romanek
“ A depressingly beautiful film, full of cerebral philosophizing. Great performances by (the heart-breaking) Carey Mulligan, (definitely not Edward Cullen) Andrew Garfield and (the ever-lovely) Keira Knightley. ” - Barloq

    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.7/10 X

Director: David Fincher
“ What the hell!?! How could they make a movie about Facebook? And more importantly, how could they make it SO DAMN GOOD. I will never doubt David Fincher again. ” - Barloq
 
5.
How to Train Your Dragon (2010)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.2/10 X  
A hapless young Viking who aspires to hunt dragons becomes the unlikely friend of a young dragon himself, and learns there may be more to the creatures than he assumed. (98 mins.)
“ Another movie that was surprisingly, really good. Too bad it went up against Toy Story 3 at the Oscars, or it would have taken Best Animated Picture easily. ” - Barloq
 
6.
Winter's Bone (2010)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.2/10 X  
An unflinching Ozark Mountain girl hacks through dangerous social terrain as she hunts down her drug-dealing father while trying to keep her family intact. (100 mins.)

7.

    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.8/10 X  
The magically long-haired Rapunzel has spent her entire life in a tower, but now that a runaway thief has stumbled upon her, she is about to discover the world for the first time, and who she really is. (100 mins.)

8.

    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.5/10 X  
Scott Pilgrim must defeat his new girlfriend's seven evil exes in order to win her heart. (112 mins.)
Director: Edgar Wright
“ Holy crap - they managed to condense all 6 Scott Pilgrim books into a single movie, and *it works*. An energetic nerd-gasm by the consistently entertaining Edgar Wright. ” - Barloq
 
11.
Inception (2010)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.8/10 X  
A thief, who steals corporate secrets through use of dream-sharing technology, is given the inverse task of planting an idea into the mind of a CEO. (148 mins.)
“ Overrated. Yes, I just said that out loud, come crucify me now Nolan-fanboys. It's smart for a blockbuster, but not as smart as people are giving it credit for. That said, it is certainly an enjoyable ride. ” - Barloq
 
12.

    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.6/10 X

Director: Massy Tadjedin
“ A very engaging drama, has some genuinely surprising twists and turns, and makes the most of its relatively simple premise. ” - Barloq

Upon his return to his ancestral homeland, an American man is bitten, and subsequently cursed by, a werewolf. (103 mins.)
Director: Joe Johnston
“ My guilty pleasure of the year. Truthfully, I love this movie. Some people are like "lolwut, a werewolf fight?" and meanwhile I was sitting on the edge of my seat saying "OMG, they're seriously setting up a werewolf fight, this is beyond awesome!!!" One of my favourite werewolf movies ever. ” - Barloq
 
14.
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 (2010)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.7/10 X  
As Harry races against time and evil to destroy the Horcruxes, he uncovers the existence of three most powerful objects in the wizarding world: the Deathly Hallows. (146 mins.)
Director: David Yates
“ An epic first part to the conclusion to the series. It's slow, but it really helps build up the tension and sets things up in a really great way for Part II. ” - Barloq
 
15.
Frozen (2010)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.2/10 X  
Three skiers stranded on a chairlift are forced to make life-or-death choices which prove more perilous than staying put and freezing to death. (93 mins.)
Director: Adam Green
“ A really intense horror movie with an incredibly simple premise that it makes the most out of. The Jaws of the slopes indeed. ” - Barloq
 
16.
Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale (2010)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.7/10 X  
In the depths of the Korvatunturi mountains, 486 metres deep, lies the closest ever guarded secret of Christmas. The time has come to dig it up! This Christmas everyone will believe in Santa Claus. (84 mins.)
“ A hilarious combination of a classic Christmas movie and The Thing. See it (if you don't get turned off by naked old men wangs anyway). ” - Barloq
 
17.
Despicable Me (2010)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.7/10 X  
When a criminal mastermind uses a trio of orphan girls as pawns for a grand scheme, he finds their love is profoundly changing him for the better. (95 mins.)
“ A charmingly original kid's movie that anyone could find a place in their heart for. ” - Barloq
 
18.
Super (2010)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.8/10 X  
After his wife falls under the influence of a drug dealer, an everyday guy transforms himself into Crimson Bolt, a superhero with the best intentions, but lacking in heroic skills. (96 mins.)
Director: James Gunn
“ Another screwed up addition to the "real-life superhero" genre, it's best described as a cross between Kick-Ass (over the top violence) and Defendor (serious subject matter) with a greater emphasis on the dark comedy present in those two films. ” - Barloq
 
19.
Predators (2010)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.4/10 X  
A group of elite warriors parachute into an unfamiliar jungle and are hunted by members of a merciless alien race. (107 mins.)
Director: Nimród Antal
“ A competent addition to the Predator series, better than Predator 2 in my opinion. It's actually really well-done, up until the last 15 minutes, where it can't sustain itself any longer, but it makes me happy to see the big bad Predators in their glory again. ” - Barloq
 
20.
The Book of Eli (2010)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.9/10 X  
A post-apocalyptic tale, in which a lone man fights his way across America in order to protect a sacred book that holds the secrets to saving humankind. (118 mins.)
“ Far from perfect, but a very stylish, enjoyable post-apocalyptic romp none-the-less. ” - Barloq
 
21.
Green Zone (2010)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.9/10 X  
Discovering covert and faulty intelligence causes a U.S. Army officer to go rogue as he hunts for Weapons of Mass Destruction in an unstable region. (115 mins.)
Director: Paul Greengrass
“ A rather engaging and realistic war/political-thriller. It's at its strongest when it isn't slipping into action movie cliches, at which points the film becomes clearly fiction rather than truly plausible. ” - Barloq
 
22.
Machete (2010)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.7/10 X  
After being set-up and betrayed by the man who hired him to assassinate a Texas Senator, an ex-Federale launches a brutal rampage of revenge against his former boss. (105 mins.)
“ Until the last half hour or so, this is really good exploitative fun. It sputters at the end, unfortunately, but I have high hopes for the next entry. ” - Barloq
 
23.
RED (2010)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.1/10 X  
When his peaceful life is threatened by a high-tech assassin, former black-ops agent Frank Moses reassembles his old team in a last ditch effort to survive and uncover his assailants. (111 mins.)
“ A decent actioner, better than The Expendibles in any case. My biggest beef, however, is that it isn't over-the-top enough. After the scene with John Malkovich and the bazooka it starts getting too down to earth (well, as close as Hollywood can go anyway), which is disappointing. ” - Barloq
 
24.
Piranha 3D (2010)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 5.5/10 X  
After a sudden underwater tremor sets free scores of the prehistoric man-eating fish, an unlikely group of strangers must band together to stop themselves from becoming fish food for the area's new razor-toothed residents. (88 mins.)
Director: Alexandre Aja
“ I'm not one to shy away from gore by any means, but Piranha has to have some of the most disgusting footage I've ever seen put to film... So while I probably won't ever watch this movie again, I have to admit that it was a solid creature-feature and a lot of trashy fun. If some hardcore, disturbingly over-the-top gore isn't a turn-off for you then consider checking it out to see the MTV crowd get chomped on. ” - Barloq
 
25.
London Boulevard (2010)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.2/10 X  
An ex-con with a reputation tries to go straight by working as a handy man for a reclusive actress but this is unfortunately not the wish of London's underground crime lord. (103 mins.)
Director: William Monahan
“ An enjoyable crime drama. Nothing spectacular, but it works. ” - Barloq
 
26.
The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader (2010)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.3/10 X

Along the way they encounter dragons, dwarves, merfolk, and a band of lost warriors before reaching the edge of the world. (113 mins.)
Director: Michael Apted
“ Another middle-of-the-road entry in the Narnia series. Better than Prince Caspian in any case, but it's a little too stripped down. The 3D isn't that great either. ” - Barloq
 
27.
Date Night (2010)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.3/10 X  
In New York City, a case of mistaken identity turns a bored married couple's attempt at a glamorous and romantic evening into something more thrilling and dangerous. (88 mins.)

“ A serviceable rom-com, nothing special. ” - Barloq
 
28.
The Sorcerer's Apprentice (2010)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.1/10 X  
Master sorcerer Balthazar Blake must find and train Merlin's descendant to defeat dark sorceress Morgana la Fée. (109 mins.)
Director: Jon Turteltaub
“ Considering that this was the "big flop" of 2010, it was actually not that bad. Not amazing, but it deserved to get its budget back in any case. ” - Barloq
 
29.
Ultramarines: A Warhammer 40,000 Movie (2010)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 5.7/10 X  
A squad of Ultramarines answer a distress call from an Imperial Shrine World. A full Company of Imperial Fists was stationed there, but there is no answer from them. The squad investigates to find out what has happened there. (76 mins.)
Director: Martyn Pick
“ An "ok" first official 40k movie. Nothing spectacular. ” - Barloq
 
30.
Hot Tub Time Machine (2010)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.4/10 X  
A malfunctioning time machine at a ski resort takes a man back to 1986 with his two friends and nephew, where they must relive a fateful night and not change anything to make sure the nephew is born. (101 mins.)
Director: Steve Pink
“ An exercise in WTF? Occasionally funny. This is around the point in the list where the movies start getting bad. ” - Barloq
 
31.
Dinner for Schmucks (2010)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 5.9/10 X  
When he finds out that his work superiors host a dinner celebrating the idiocy of their guests, a rising executive questions it when he's invited, just as he befriends a man who would be the perfect guest. (114 mins.)
Director: Jay Roach
“ Basically, a sillier version of I Love You Man. Meh. ” - Barloq
 
32.
Iron Man 2 (2010)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.0/10 X  
With the world now aware of his identity as Iron Man, Tony Stark must contend with both his declining health and a vengeful mad man with ties to his father's legacy. (124 mins.)
Director: Jon Favreau
“ A really, really weak follow-up to the refreshing, hard-hitting original. ” - Barloq
 
33.
Resident Evil: Afterlife (2010)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 5.9/10 X  
While still out to destroy the evil Umbrella Corporation, Alice joins a group of survivors living in a prison surrounded by the infected who also want to relocate to the mysterious but supposedly unharmed safe haven known only as Arcadia. (97 mins.)
“ Another crappy entry in this series that no one actually likes. Somehow, this is the most brainless entry thus far. ” - Barloq
 
34.
Alice in Wonderland (2010)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.5/10 X  
Nineteen-year-old Alice returns to the magical world from her childhood adventure, where she reunites with her old friends and learns of her true destiny: to end the Red Queen's reign of terror. (108 mins.)
Director: Tim Burton
“ Bleh. Overdone is probably the best way I can describe this. ” - Barloq
 
35.
The Twilight Saga: Eclipse (2010)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 4.9/10 X  
As a string of mysterious killings grips Seattle, Bella, whose high school graduation is fast approaching, is forced to choose between her love for vampire Edward and her friendship with werewolf Jacob. (124 mins.)
Director: David Slade
“ I think that, of all the movies I saw this year, this was the one that surprised me the most - it didn't suck. In fact, it was actually good in a few bits. Unlike the previous two films, it moves at a decent pace and the actors show a bit of chemistry at times. However, it is still a merely-mediocre movie. ” - Barloq
 
36.
Hypothermia (2010)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 3.9/10 X  
Ray Pelletier just wants to spend a pleasant and relaxing weekend ice fishing with his family. Alas... (73 mins.)
“ An okay but unmemorable horror flick. Only Michael Rooker puts in a good performance, which is unfortunate because the movie is done in by the otherwise terrible acting and an absolutely moronic ending. Also, the monster looks like a cheap Halloween costume... ” - Barloq
 
37.
Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time (2010)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.6/10 X  
A young fugitive prince and princess must stop a villain who unknowingly threatens to destroy the world with a special dagger that enables the magic sand inside to reverse time. (116 mins.)
Director: Mike Newell
“ Of all the generic summer blockbusters, Prince of Persia is certainly a prime contender amongst the most boring and most mediocre of them all. I can't really say much more, it's just incredibly dull and not particularly notable in any way. ” - Barloq
 
38.
Family Guy (1999 TV Series)
Episode: Episode VI: It's a Trap (2011)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.3/10 X  
Clear some space for the third chapter of the funniest freakin' trilogy in the galaxy! (22 mins.)
“ Ugh. Family Guy. They didn't even try with this one. I've actually had people say "well DUH that's the point! They said in the opening!" And I say "so what?" Does aiming to be crap make being crap good? No. That's why the big-budget Grindhouse movies end up underwhelming, they set the bar low and don't bother going that extra mile. ” - Barloq
 
39.
The Expendables (2010)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.5/10 X  
A CIA operative hires a team of mercenaries to eliminate a Latin dictator and a renegade CIA agent. (103 mins.)
“ How? How could you take such an amazing cast and then make such a mediocre action movie? People say that's the point, but read my review for It's A Trap! - if you aimed low, you don't get a free pass. This movie wants to be like the 80s, but if it was released back in the 80s, we wouldn't remember it today.

I just hope Sly fixes the formula in the sequel. ” - Barloq
 
40.
Clash of the Titans (2010)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 5.8/10 X  
Perseus demigod, son of Zeus, battles the minions of the underworld to stop them from conquering heaven and earth. (106 mins.)
Director: Louis Leterrier
“ Wow, how could they screw this up so badly? It takes *effort* to take this premise and turn it into something that isn't epic. Sadly, they defied my expectations... oh well, at least "...RELEASE THE KRAKEN!" was the line of the year for me. ” - Barloq
 
41.
Rubber (2010)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 5.8/10 X  
A homicidal car tire, discovering it has destructive psionic power, sets its sights on a desert town once a mysterious woman becomes its obsession. (82 mins.)
Director: Quentin Dupieux
“ Imagine a movie about a killer tire. Rubber is even stranger than that movie. ” - Barloq
 
42.
Night Wolf (2010)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 4.5/10 X  
Sarah Tyler returns to her troubled family home in the isolated countryside, for a much put-off visit... (81 mins.)
“ An extremely generic teen monster horror movie. It's not even all that violent, so you can't even get your jollies from cheap exploitation. Utterly passable, which is a shame for a werewolf moving brandying about the "Dog Soldiers" name. Even worse, the werewolf looks *beep* horrible. ” - Barloq
 
43.
Mothman (2010 TV Movie)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 3.4/10 X  
A group of friends band together to hide the truth about a mutual friend's tragic death. They soon discover that an evil entity is in pursuit of them. (91 mins.)
Director: Sheldon Wilson
“ I only really watched this because I find the Mothman legend very interesting, but sadly this movie doesn't really have much to do with it. They just took the basics of the Mothman and turned it into a generic horror movie monster. If you're interested in the mythology, the Mothman Prophecies is a much better source (in pretty much every conceivable way). This is just bland, generic and lazy. ” - Barloq
 
44.
A Nightmare on Elm Street (2010)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 5.2/10 X  
The spectre of a dead child rapist haunts the children of the parents who murdered him, stalking and killing them in their dreams. (95 mins.)
Director: Samuel Bayer
“ Crap. I didn't even like the original that much, but this was just bad. ” - Barloq
 
45.
Saw 3D: The Final Chapter (2010)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 5.6/10 X  
As a deadly battle rages over Jigsaw's brutal legacy, a group of Jigsaw survivors gathers to seek the support of self-help guru and fellow survivor Bobby Dagen, a man whose own dark secrets unleash a new wave of terror. (90 mins.)
Director: Kevin Greutert
“ A *beep* ending to a series that ran out of steam immediately after the (admittedly gripping) first entry. More of the same, except more ridiculous. ” - Barloq
 
46.
Vampires Suck (2010)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 3.5/10 X  
A spoof of vampire-themed movies, where teenager Becca finds herself torn between two boys. As she and her friends wrestle with a number of different dramas, everything comes to a head at their prom. (82 mins.)
“ Yes, they do. ” - Barloq
 
47.
Battle of the Bulbs (2010 TV Movie)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 5.4/10 X  
Bob Wallace makes sure to go all out every year on Christmas decorations so that he can have the brightest and most festive house in his neighborhood... (89 mins.)
Director: F. Harvey Frost
“ A total piece of crap TV Christmas movie. Terrible acting, generic plot and a totally forced resolution. Definitely up there with some of the worst Christmas movies I've seen. ” - Barloq
 
48.
Birdemic: Shock and Terror (2010)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 1.8/10 X  
A horde of mutated birds descends upon the quiet town of Half Moon Bay, California. With the death toll rising, Two citizens manage to fight back, but will they survive Birdemic? (105 mins.)
Director: James Nguyen
“ Words cannot describe the joy you feel in watching this. It's just so bad, so baffling, that you won't believe this was committed to celluloid. If you have even a passing interest in terrible cinema, this should already be on your list. ” - Barloq
