Top 10 Movies of 2010 and BEST AND WORST OF 2010 by Tim Nasson


Updated and Finalized January 21, 2011

Well, it's that time of year again. Time for the Top 10 Best & Worst Lists of all movies released during the present year. The 2010 WAMMYs. And also our shout outs to movie studios, publicists and actors we loved dealing with in 2010. We were going to compile a WORST list that included Hollywood publicists, (and there were a lot fighting for the top slots), but then remembered there's no such thing as BAD PUBLICITY. So the decision was made to only include the BEST publicists and Best and Worst Movies. Perhaps next year, the publicists who were vile this year will have made an about face and earned a reason to have their name on our site and win a WAMMY!

First off, Tim Nasson's Top 10 Movies of 2010...
And then a little explaining about how I arrived at my decision(s)!

Top 10 Movies Of 2010

As Selected By Tim Nasson

1. Toy Story 3
2. Joan Rivers: A Piece Of Work
3. The King's Speech

4. True Grit
5. The Town

tie The Fighter
6. Blue Valentine
7. Mother

8. Rabbit Hole

9. Another Year

10. The Illusionist

Virtually every major studio sent DVD screeners, (over 120 movies in total), of their 2010 Big Screen Releases for me to watch and judge.

And judge I did.

Black Swan. The Social Network. Inception. Not on my Top 10 Best List of 2010? No. They are the three most overrated movies released in theaters during 2010. Especially The Social Network. Will it win the Oscar for Best Picture and a slew of other accolades during the coming months? It's certainly the front runner for the 2011 Best Picture Oscar but does it deserve it? No. Neither does Black Swan. Nor Inception.

The best movie of 2010, by far, without a doubt, and you even voted - with your dollars - around the world - Toy Story 3. It's the best written movie of the year and the overall Best Picture of 2010, regardless of the fact that it is an animated movie. Toy Story 3 is the highest grossing movie in the United States of 2010, (more than $400 million), and the only movie released in 2010 to earn more than $400 million in the United States. The film earned a total of $1,063,143,492 worldwide.

Disney's Alice In Wonderland came in second at the 2010 movie box office, in America and worldwide, with only $334 million domestically and $1,024,299,722 worldwide. For the complete 2010 Movie Box Office list... (continue)
