The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader (2010)

"Lacking almost all of author C.S. Lewis' metaphysical depth and fantastical breadth, The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader is a middling fairy tale posing as genuine mythology. "

I Love You Phillip Morris (2010)

"Laugh-out-loud hilarious one moment and darkly tragic the next, I Love You Phillip Morris' tone is wildly uneven, never quite sure of what sort of movie it wants to be-and I loved it for it."

All Good Things (2010)

"All Good Things is a terrible miscalculation, one that should have been, given his history, glaringly obvious to its director. If this film had been made as a traditional documentary, this would likely be a very different review."

Black Swan (2010)

"Black Swan is the stillborn offspring of The Red Shoes and Hieronymus Bosch-both magnificent and magnificently disturbing. Art, obsession and mental fragility coalesce into something dark, gnarled and hallucinatory."

Love and Other Drugs (2010)

"With Love and Other Drugs, director Edward Zwick has embarked on the biggest about-face of his career and produced a bittersweet, clear-eyed gem about the highs and lows of love."

Tangled (2010)

"Tangled is easily Disney's best traditional animated feature since The Lion King. The film has an old-fashioned feel-unrepentantly sentimental, unashamedly sincere, an unapologetic fairytale-in short, an instant classic. "

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 1 (2010)

"Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows lacks warmth, whimsy, playfulness and hope. And that is precisely what makes it great."

127 Hours (2010)

"127 Hours is one of the great survival stories and easily one of the most inspirational, triumphal things you will ever see. You will walk out of the film not depressed, but elated."

Unstoppable (2010)

"Unstoppable is a summer movie in a winter slot because it is good enough to hold its own there-a thrilling, suspenseful, pulse pounding adventure made all the more exciting because it is true."

Morning Glory (2010)

"Morning Glory is a breezy, delightful fall comedy that sparkles from start to finish, a fresh, welcome edition amidst the solemnity of the current Oscar bait season."

Due Date (2010)

"While distinctly less raunchy (and correspondingly less outrageous) than The Hangover, Due Date still manages to deliver (pun intended)."

Megamind (2010)

"In a sort of backhanded answer to Pixar's The Incredibles (and I mean that in a positive way), DreamWorks hits yet another animated adventure out of the park. Megamind is clever, fast-paced and fun, and looks fantastic in 3D."

Fair Game (2010)

"Fair Game is a detailed, habitually accurate and surprisingly moving film. Like the documentary The Tillman Story earlier this summer, you will likely leave Fair Game fairly angry."

The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest (2010)

"A trilogies' worth of seemingly disconnected characters and random plot points merge into an utterly satisfying climax. "

Paranormal Activity 2 (2010)

"The primary reason Paranormal Activity 2 works is because it doesn't misguidedly try to improve on the formula, or worse, reinvent the wheel."

Hereafter (2010)

"Hereafter isn't about the hereafter so much as it is about those who are left here, after."

Conviction (2010)

"Familiar and conventional doesn't mean it can't also be formidable. Conviction is earnest, it is stirring and ultimately, it delivers."

Red (2010)

"Dame Helen Mirren looks like Martha Stewart on the outside but Rambo on the inside; you won't see anything sexier this year than Mirren wielding an automatic weapon."

Catfish (2010)

"A recent, famous "New Yorker" cartoon has two dogs perched in front of a computer, the one telling the other, "On the Internet, nobody knows you’re a dog." As Catfish proves, that goes for humans, too."

You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger (2010)

"At times it seems like every Woody Allen film is nothing more than a sequel to Crimes and Misdemeanors."

Waiting for Superman (2010)

"Waiting for Superman might as well be titled An Inconvenient Truth: The Sequel. Like Guggenheim’s previous, Oscar-winning documentary, this is yet another horror film in the guise of a documentary."

The Social Network (2010)

"The Social Network sets out to show you the genesis of a modern Rockefeller, Carnegie or Vanderbilt. In the 21st century, information is the new oil, the new steel. What hasn't changed is the mentality of the tycoon. "

Let Me In (2010)

Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps (2010)

"Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps feels like a genuine continuation of the original story, rather than the parodic spoof some might assume. It is also one of the best directed films of the year."

Never Let Me Go (2010)

"Movies about banality are, for reasons that are all too clear, often banal themselves."

Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole (2010)

"Whatever its shortcomings, Legend of the Guardians is sweeping entertainment and a diverting, exhilarating entry in the often lethargically tame genre of children's filmmaking."

The Town (2010)

"The rehabilitation of Ben Affleck is complete. His penance has been accepted. The star of Gigli, Daredevil and Pearl Harbor has now earned audiences' respect again (to say nothing of finally being worthy of wife Jennifer Garner). "

Easy A (2010)

"Easy A, one of the wittiest, most provocative, smartest high school comedies in years, addresses the age old question of socially acceptable behavior with unrepentant chutzpah and rare comic insight."

Flipped (2010)

"Reiner was clearly sick the day they taught filmmaking at film school-you show, not tell the audience what's going on. What at first seems sort of clever quickly turns into an exercise in exasperating tedium. "

Machete (2010)

"Unwilling to consistently push its violence, sex or comedy to the extremes demanded by its grindhouse roots, Machete turns out to be a mixed bag of monotonous exposition and tasteless fun." ‐Colorado Springs Gazette

Going the Distance (2010)

"It's about time someone made a romantic comedy about long distance relationships. The set-up is ripe with both comic and dramatic possibilities, dueling polarities that Going the Distance mines equally. " ‐Christianity Today

The Tillman Story (2010)

"You will leave The Tillman Story enraged, not because the movie is bad but because it does its job so superbly well-moving you out of both your seat and your apathy."

The American (2010)

"The American is not an action movie in the conventional sense. It is perhaps more accurately described as an art house film with guns."

The Last Exorcism (2010)

"For the first three quarters of its running time, The Last Exorcism positively purred and then, as it rounded the final lap, the film completely ruined any good feelings I had for it with a diabolically stupid ending. "

Animal Kingdom (2010)

"While the events Animal Kingdom unfolds are, in the grand scheme of criminal lore, comparatively inconsequential, while you're watching it, they feel as primal and as visceral as any of cinema's greatest crime epics."

The Extra Man (2010)

"As paltry and unsubstantial a film as The Extra Man is, I cannot find it within myself to completely resist its charms. The reason can be summed up in two incandescent words: Kevin Kline."

The Switch (2010)

"Don't be fooled by misleading advertising or even your own preconceptions. It turns out The Switch is a heck of a wonderful film. Once the film gets beyond its ridiculous set-up, it hits a poignant stride few will see coming."

Eat Pray Love (2010)

"The film, which admittedly stumbles in the home stretch and just misses out on something like greatness, is nonetheless a visual and metaphysical delight. Come hungry, come searching, come lonely."

Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (2010)

"Too schizophrenic for its own good, constantly interrupting and upending its narrative with melees containing all manner of attention deficit disorder tricks."

The Expendables (2010)

"Fun as the film occasionally was, those involved would have done well to take the advice from another 80's action classic: "You're too old for this &$#&!""

Get Low (2010)

"Get Low is a character showcase for some of this country's finest statesman actors-Robert Duvall, Bill Murray and Sissy Spacek. With names like that, does the plot even matter?"

The Other Guys (2010)

"The Other Guys is the second buddy police comedy to come out this year. But unlike the highly anticipated but roundly dismissed Kevin Smith outing, Cop Out, The Other Guys is actually, well, funny." ‐Christianity Today

The Kids Are All Right (2010)

"Heartfelt and funny, The Kids Are All Right is like a cool shower on an oppressively hot day-refreshing and invigorating, the sort of unexpected surprise that catches you off guard and sticks with you for days."

The Girl Who Played with Fire (Flickan som lekte med elden) (2010)

"The Girl Who Played with Fire, is not nearly as admirable as Dragon Tattoo. What ultimately saves the film, however, is the quality time it allows us to spend with "the girl.""

Agora (2010)

"Where Agora sometimes fails as a film, it can never fail as a spark to ignite the fires of conversation. At last, this is a sword and sandal epic with its mind in the right place."

The Sorcerer's Apprentice (2010)

Despicable Me (2010)

"Despicable Me is the sort of movie about which it is the most difficult to write. It is not a bad film. On the other hand, it didn't set my heart racing either. It is a sort of lukewarm winner, neither terrific nor terrible. "

The Last Airbender (2010)
