I, for one, am more than pleased with the fact that Chris Pine has moved on from romantic comedies to working alongside Denzel Washington. All in all, this film was in and of itself a train ride.

How to Train Your Dragon

Dreamworks presents us with a warm-spirited, fun, original, visually-beautiful, worthy contender for Best Animated Film, a film which I will be ecstatically rooting for during the Oscar awards ceremony. Dreamworks is often looked down upon (no thanks to the constant praise Pixar gets even after a bad release), so I'm certainly glad that 'How To Train Your Dragon' has been recognized for the masterpiece it is.

It's easily one of the best, if not the best, movies of 2010. A wonderful, exciting addition to the list of some of the greatest Westerns of all time.

If I may also add one thing: Jeff Bridges was hilarious.

Ben Affleck shows off his true potential with a very involving story and exciting action. I cared about these criminals as much as I did the convicts from 'Prison Break'.

Toy Story 3
Toy Story 3 (2010)

Not dreadful, but definitely the worst of the film series. It lacked the originality and fun that made its predecessors so enjoyable during my adolescent years and made it seem more like it was written by somebody on Fanfiction.net as opposed to professional Pixar writers.

On a personal note:

I can honestly say that, other than the 'Harry Potter' franchise, it's one of the most overrated films ever. I often get critisized for my disliking of it, but I can fully argue that I did have a childhood and I do have a heart. I grew up with 'Toy Story'; the first and second were childhood favourites of mine. The third just didn't live up; it was far too overdramatic, and I walked out of that theatre feeling sad and empty. I expect to walk out of 'Inception' feeling that way, not a gosh-darn movie about toys!

My outlook on Pixar used to change a lot, but lately, I've settled on the fact that they're beginning to take themselves too seriously, and their films come across more forced and formulaic than fun, family-friendly entertainment. I noticed it with 'Up', and I've now concluded it with this disappointing release.

Sadly, the world praises it. Well, what do you expect with Disney?
