Top 5 Favourite Films of 2010

This year has been an awesome year for film's with tron finally out after an 18 year wait, the amazing inception leaving everyone wanting more christopher nolan and the dark knight rises,scott pligrim showing how to make a good comic movie and toy story 3 making everyone cry. These are my top 5 films this year:

5)Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows Part 1
This one is quite easily the best of the Harry Potter movies. I think they really nailed it with this one. The acting was right at oscar worthy, the cinematography was spellbinding, the music was great, they really got the mood of the book right, that nowhere was safe and they couldn't trust anyone and it was finally a dark harry potter film! Now I am uber excited for Part 2.

4)Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World
Oh how i love Edgar Wright, after Hot fuzz and Shaun of the dead i couldn't see how Wright would suit this film but he got it perfect! It's the perfect film for geeks basically because you will actually find it funny. Michael Cera was perfect for the role of Scott because he's such a douche (in a good way) and ramona flowers is just hot. The action is done very well in a comic books style, this is how spider-man should've been done!

Despite some negative critic reviews, this film remarkable. To see it in IMAX format was breathtaking. The visuals are amazing. I felt immersed in the Gaming Grid. The musical cues are spot on and Daft Punk creates the atmosphere like no other. Jeff Bridges put in an amazing performance as did Garrett Hedlund and Olivia Wilde. What a great film to end 2010 to!

2)Toy Story 3
Truly a masterpiece of storytelling and animation. Pixar's triumphant closing title to their landmark trilogy is a metaphor on life, telling us all (especially those of us who grew up with it) to treat each other with kindness respect, even when we are not getting it in return. Seeing it in 3D is amazing aswell.

What makes Inception so special is that it's not your typical straight forward summer blockbuster. Nolan gives you bits and pieces of information, and as the movie plays out the viewer begins to put the pieces together and the picture gradually becomes clearer. Chris Nolan doesn't dumb down the movie for the audience like most Hollywood movies do these days, he expects us to keep up with him. And when we do, the reward is extremely gratifying. The visuals were amazing and the acting was phenomenal.
