B 69% The Girl Who Played with Fire (Flickan som lekte med elden) (2010) Whilst it's not as memorable as the original, I've always got time for a well-written thriller.‐ ABC Radio Brisbane

B- 55% Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps (2010) This could have been a gritty, realistic drama but the writers have gone with a safer, more commercial option. The unsatisfying ending is proof of that.‐ ABC Radio Brisbane

B+ 78% The Other Guys (2010) I wasn't sure what to expect from the unorthodox pairing of Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg but it turns out they make a likeable comedic duo.‐ ABC Radio Brisbane

B 93% The Kids Are All Right (2010) I didn't take a lot away from the film but there are some wonderfully uncomfortable scenes that make it worth seeing.‐ ABC Radio Brisbane

A- 91% The Father of My Children (Le pere de mes enfants) (2010) Mia Hansen-Løve deserves credit both as a writer and a director. This is a very convincing drama.‐ ABC Radio Brisbane

A- 83% The Ghost Writer (2010) We're all entitled to our own opinions regarding his past but Polanski deserves credit as a filmmaker. The Ghost Writer proves that he's as good as ever at the age of 77.‐ ABC Radio Brisbane

A 81% Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (2010) About half way through this film, I realised I had let my guard down. I was having too much fun. My critic's hat had fallen off.‐ ABC Radio Brisbane

B+ 75% Greenberg (2010) Some viewers will be turned off by this non-Stiller role but I think he's great. He also gets a few quotable lines thanks to writer-director Noah Baumbach.‐ ABC Radio Brisbane
