Let Me In (2010)

"I absolutely adored the original Swedish film and was more than worried about a remake. Reeves proved me wrong and delivers one of the best remakes I have ever seen." ‐BDK Reviews

The Social Network (2010)

"Every aspect of the film, from Fincher's beautiful direction to Reznor's emotionally devastating score to each and every performance is absolutely stunning." ‐BDK Reviews

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

"The visuals are absolutely stunning and there's something inherently awesome about owls fighting in Snyder's slow-motion. The issue lies within the story and character names. " ‐BDK Reviews

Never Let Me Go (2010)

"Never Let Me Go is easily one of the most hard-hitting, sick, twisted, demented, disturbing, beautiful and emotional films I have seen in a while." ‐BDK Reviews

Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps (2010)

"The flick is a worthy sequel that contains phenomenal performances but falls short of the first one. Some of the editing felt like a Powerpoint presentation. " ‐BDK Reviews

Catfish (2010)

"The misleading trailer will intrigue people to watch it but the actual product is so much more rewarding. Catfish is unintentionally genius. " ‐BDK Reviews

The Town (2010)

"While the film never reaches that true level of greatness, Affleck has crafted a well-made heist film with amazing performances from Lively, Postlethwaite and Renner. " ‐BDK Reviews

Devil (2010)

"I do not understand the hatred for Shyamalan. Yes, he has trouble directing actors but Devil is a very intriguing idea executed in a relatively mediocre fashion." ‐BDK Reviews

The American (2010)

"I found myself more interested in the beautiful cinematography than the story line. The American is extremely slow for the first two acts but does deliver in the finale." ‐BDK Reviews

Going the Distance (2010)

"Long and Barrymore create very realistic chemistry in a film that pretty much nails what's it like to be in a long distance relationship. Though, Charlie Day steals the movie." ‐WJFK-FM (CBS Radio)

Machete (2010)

"Rodriguez should petition the Oscars to create an award for the greatest death scene. I was practically in tears trying to comprehend the awesome nature of this flick." ‐BDK Reviews

Takers (2010)

"Takers is unoriginal, overlong, extremely predictable and poorly written but does contain an on-foot Parkour chase sequence that almost saves the film. " ‐BDK Reviews

The Last Exorcism (2010)

"The film is like enjoying a beautifully tender filet mignon where every bite is delicious. But, at the end you find a disgusting fungus-filled toe nail on the plate." ‐BDK Reviews

The Switch (2010)

"The Switch is a wonderfully cute flick that builds realistic chemistry between a father and son. Jason Bateman and Thomas Robinson have amazing emotional arcs. " ‐BDK Reviews

Lottery Ticket (2010)

"Haven't I seen this movie before? I think it came out in 1995 and was co-written by Ice Cube. " ‐BDK Reviews

Piranha 3-D (2010)

"80,000 gallons of fake blood, extreme violence, gore, terribly cheesy dialogue, legit scares, high tension, porn stars and a wet T-shirt contest all in 3D. Are you sold yet?" ‐BDK Reviews

Eat Pray Love (2010)

"Eat Pray Love is the cure for insomnia. The film is boring and a gigantic advertisement for The Travel Channel, Food Network and Lifetime. " ‐BDK Reviews

The Expendables (2010)

"The Expendables should have been the greatest action movie ever made. Unfortunately, the film is a bit underwhelming. Luckily, Crews and Statham save the day." ‐BDK Reviews

Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (2010)

"Add a tablespoon of 500 Days of Summer, a dash of Super Nintendo and a pinch of Street Fighter, and Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World is served. This movie is epic!" ‐BDK Reviews

The Other Guys (2010)

"If you liked Anchorman as much I did, you will love The Other Guys. Ferrell is back! You will want to go out and the classic TLC album after the movie ends." ‐BDK Reviews

Step Up 3 (2010)

"Step Up 3-D is worth seeing for the amazing Fred Astaire homage sequence. Jon Chu nailed the longest 3D single-take shot in cinema history. The 3D was even great!" ‐BDK Reviews

Charlie St. Cloud (2010)

Dinner for Schmucks (2010)

"The overall film is a mess but the performances from Jemaine Clement, Lucy Punch and Zack Galafianakis make the flick worth watching. Catch the matinee price." ‐WJFK-FM (CBS Radio)

The Sorcerer's Apprentice (2010)

Inception (2010)

"Inception is one of the most original, thought-provoking, intense, mind-blowing pieces of entertainment I have ever seen. I would pay money to watch people's reactions." ‐BDK Reviews

The Twilight Saga: Eclipse (2010)

Grown Ups (2010)

Knight & Day (2010)

Jonah Hex (2010)

Solitary Man (2010)

The A-Team (2010)

"The A-Team does not have a single dull moment in between the unbelievably awesome action sequences and the perfect chemistry. Sharlto Copley steals the entire flick." ‐BDK Reviews

Splice (2010)

"Vincenzo Natali has created a film that does not follow the normal Hollywood formula and takes insane risks. Chaneac delivers a phenomenal performance without using dialogue." ‐BDK Reviews

Get Him to the Greek (2010)

"Get Him to the Greek is filled with consistent laughs and classic comedic moments. I never thought I would see the day where I would say that Diddy is a comedic genius." ‐BDK Reviews

Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time (2010)

Sex and the City 2 (2010)

"The sequel is too long and is missing that sparkle and surprise factor which made the series and first film so enjoyable. Even Samantha's character felt forced and overdone." ‐BDK Reviews

Shrek Forever After (2010)

"Shrek Forever After is an improvement on the third film but misses that comedic balance that the first two films delivered. " ‐BDK Reviews

MacGruber (2010)

"I laughed so hard that I broke a sweat. MacGruber is one of those comedies that nails the combination of stupid and clever humor. The flick is 100% self-aware. " ‐BDK Reviews

Robin Hood (2010)

"Luckily, I chugged a red bull before the film started because Ridley Scott's Robin Hood was slow, boring and lifeless. The only Strong point was the film's villain." ‐BDK Reviews
