I LOVE movies! I love going to the movies. I love watching DVDs. I even love the cheesy “made for tv” movies. I don’t love horror movies, so I guess I can’t give an objective opinion on those, but hey…who said I have to be objective.
I was reading Eonline this morning and they listed their Top 10 Movies of 2010. Since I don’t necessarily agree with their list, I’m making my own list for 2010.
1. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 – I was seriously anticipating this movie. I love the books and I’ve loved all of the movies, and I just knew this one was going to surpass my expectations. I am a 38 year old woman who was having dreams about my close personal relationships with Harry Potter, Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger…pathetic, I know, lol.
2. Despicable Me – This movie was unexpectedly fun. We took all three little kids, and they all sat and watched it (no small feat for a three year old!). It’s definitely one of my new favourites.
3. Legend of the Guardians – Awesome animation and a great story. It was really unique too, which is kind of refreshing.
4. The Back Up Plan – This movie was hysterical. I felt a little bad for the young couple behind us in the theater who I overheard mention that they were on their first date. The word “vagina” was thrown around a little too much for a first date, lol…but it had me cracking up!
5. The Social Network – Who doesn’t love facebook? I had to see this movie about the creator of facebook, and now I think he either has aspergers or he’s a class A jerk, it was still a great story.
6. Toy Story 3 – I took my oldest son, Eric, to the theater for the first time when Toy Story first came out. I still remember how amazed he was with the movie, and I was too since it was the first digital animation. He’s 18 now, and this new Toy Story touched a nerve as I watched little Andy go off to College and thought about my own son who will soon be doing the same. The movie was a tearjerker without that added emotional connection…my 6 year old daughter needed some serious consoling afterwards!
7. Eat, Pray, Love – True stories are always favourites of mine and this one didn’t disappoint. Who doesn’t love a good soul searching love story?
8. Karate Kid – It helps that Jaden Smith is the cutest kid on the planet, but the story was great too. I love that they didn’t just copy the original Karate Kid (another one of my favourites), but made a new story with a similar story line.
9. The Last Airbender – I have to admit, I wasn’t that excited to watch this movie. Kellen and Mike watch the cartoon and it has never interested me, so the movie didn’t seem that exciting either…but I was wrong! It is a captivating story.
10. Alice in Wonderland – Johnny Depp is in it…do I have to say more?
