The 10 films I found the best from the year 2010. I think overall it has been a pretty good year for film, so I probably could have had more than 10 on this list! I have managed to see 41 films from the year 2010, so picked my 10 best from those!
A couple of the films which have made the list managed to surprise me as I might not have been expecting very much from them before watching them.

Here are the nominations for this years BAFTA awards with my views and predictions. I really have a feeling that The King’s Speech will sweep the awards! My favorite two films within the nominations have to be “Inception” and “Black Swan” both incredible thought-provoking films. So I shall be rooting for them. Excellent to see “Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” getting some recognition!
|BLACK SWAN - Mike Medavoy, Brian Oliver, Scott Franklin|
|INCEPTION - Emma Thomas, Christopher Nolan|
|THE KING’S SPEECH - Iain Canning, Emile Sherman, Gareth Unwin|
|THE SOCIAL NETWORK - Scott Rudin, Dana Brunetti, Michael De Luca, Céan Chaffin|
|TRUE GRIT - Scott Rudin, Ethan Coen, Joel Coen|
If “The King’s Speech” does not take this award, which I think it will do. I would love to see Inception get some recognition in awards terms as it really has been one of the most talked about films in recent times.

This is a story about a friendship which lasted forever, a friendship which was formed in childhood and kept through letters, it had ups and downs, they had fall outs, they did not speak after different events, but in the end they were there for each other when it really mattered.
