Best Movies of 2010 (So Far)

Updated on August 3, 2010

With 2010 more than halfway gone, It's time to take a look back at some of the best movies of the year, so far. Many great movies have already come out in 2010, so it was hard to put this short list together. But,here are some of the best movies of the year. Be sure to check them all out, you won't be disappointed.

--Best Movies of 2010--

Clash of The Titans

The first movie on the list is the glorious remake of the 1981 movie Clash of The Titans. The movie follows Perseus, a demigod raised by people, who is helpless to save his family when their boat is attacked by Hades, the god of the underworld. Desperate for revenge, Perseus leads a revolt to stop Hades before his powers get too strong. Starring Sam Worthington(Avatar) as Perseus, The Clash of The Titans is a must see movie of 2010. You can even forgive the fact that they don't have many titans in it, if any.

Iron Man 2

Tony Stark is back as the genius billionaire in this thrilling sequel to the worldwide blockbuster Iron Man. Picking up where the previous movie ended, everyone knows Tony Stark's secret identity as Iron Man and everyone wants in on it. None quite as much as Ivan Vanko, played by Mickey Rourke, who has a personal grudge with the superhero. Tony Stark must once again wear the mighty gold and red suit for the sake of himself, and the world. While it didn't quite live up to it's awesome predecessor, Iron Man 2 didn't disappoint in any way and it left a lot of clues as to future Iron Man villains. Definitely worth a watch if you haven't seen it yet.

District 9

District 9 was directed by Neill Blomkamp and produced by Peter Jackson, the mastermind behind the great King Kong film. District 9 is a documentary style film about a huge alien mother ship that hovers slowly over earth, finally coming to a stop high above Johannesburg, South Africa. Many news companies report that the ship became stranded after a command module malfunctioned. Faced with foreign and domestic pressures, the government of Johannesburg decides to perform a rescue mission to help the aliens.

Inside the ship they find over 1,000,000 starving aliens, referred to by the citizens in a stereotypical manner as "Prawns". Refugee like camps are set up for the Prawns, which quickly turn into slums, filled with drugs and crime. District 9 follows the life of Wikus van de Merwe a young MNU agent who, through a series of events, becomes infected by fluid out of the Prawns' ship. What follows is Wikus' epic journey to save himself and maybe a few Prawns in the process.

Shutter Island

The next great movie of 2010, so far, is Shutter Island, directed by Martin Scorsese. Starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Mark Ruffalo, Shutter Island is a Drama set in 1954 about a young U.S. Marshall. Teddy Daniels, DiCaprio, is a Marshall given the task of investigating the escape of a murderess from a hospital for the criminally insane, known as Shutter Island. After greatly pushing for an assignment on Shutter Island for personal reasons, Daniels gets the job. But, it isn't long before he starts to wonder if he has been lured there by the unethical doctors who run the facility.

Shutter Island is an intense thriller, and DiCaprio's great acting will have you feeling every bit of emotion he feels, from uncertainty to downright anger. Shutter Island's great story and spectacular visuals will have you on the edge of your seat the entire time, with a shockingly twisted ending you will never see coming.

Paranormal Activity

Next on the list of great 2010 movies is Paranormal Activity, directed by Oren Peli. Paranormal Activity is about a young couple, Micah and Katie, who, just after moving into a new house, begin being disturbed by a presence of some sort that may, or may not, be trying to hurt them. While Katie wants to leave it alone, Micah is too fascinated with the idea of a ghost and begins to video tape the house at night. As the presence becomes more and more violent, Micah and Katie are stuck choosing between whether to leave their home, or stay and risk their lives living with this possibly demonic force. Paranormal Activity is a thrill ride from start to finish and is a great movie for anyone who enjoys a scare.


The next movie on the list of best movies of 2010 is Avatar, directed by James Cameron, is the story of a paraplegic marine, Jake, who is sent to a distant moon "Pandora".
