2010 was no different than previous years, with films that delivered thrills, chills and major disappointments. The biggest film of the year was without a doubt "Inception", that not only broke the box office, but also our minds. Furthemore this was also a great year for thrillers from old filmmaking legends with their films "Shutter Island" and "The Ghost Writer" and also from new filmmakers with films such as "Buried".
Besides the great moments they were also many bad ones. Films like "Resident Evil", "Sex and the City 2" and many more left us with a sour taste of filmmakers capabilities of defining art and anticpating audience expectation .
To conclude no matter the good, the bad and the ugly of 2010, it was a good year overall. It managed to wow us, crack us up, make us shed a tear, feel scared and continue to make us love cinema. The fact alone that great filmmakers old and new are still trying to remain original and keep the movie magic flowing. Is enough to have faith for the foreseeable future of cinema.

P.S. As always this a ever-evolving list. I haven't seen all the films of 2010 and there are many more I still wish to see. So even if some are not on the list, that dosen't mean they wont be later or that they don't deserve to be.
