Hello Movie Lovers!

We have already passed the first half of 2010. And we are getting closer to the end of the year. Now it’s time to take a look back. I would like to share with you my picks for the Top 10 Best Movies released during the first half of 2010.

Here’s my list of the Top 10 Best Movies of the first half of 2010:

Top 10 Best Movies of 2010

Shutter Island

Directed by: Martin Scorsese
Starring: Leonardo Di Caprio, Ben Kingsley
Released On: Feb 19, 2010

RT Critics’ Consensus: It may not rank with Scorsese’s best work, but Shutter Island’s gleefully unapologetic genre thrills represent the director at his most unrestrained.

Top 10 Best Movies of 2010

The Ghost Writer

Directed by: Roman Polanski
Starring: Ewan McGregor, Pierce Brosnan
Released On: Feb 19, 2010

RT Critics’ Consensus: While it may lack the revelatory punch of Polanski’s finest films, Ghost Writer benefits from stylish direction, a tense screenplay, and a strong central performance from Ewan McGregor.

Top 10 Best Movies of 2010

The Crazies

Directed by: Breck Eisner
Starring: Timothy Olyphant, Radha Mitchell
Released On: Feb 26, 2010

RT Critics’ Consensus: Tense, nicely shot, and uncommonly intelligent, The Crazies is the rare horror remake that works.

Top 10 Best Movies of 2010

Alice in Wonderland

Directed by: Tim Burton
Starring: Mia Wasikowska, Johnny Depp, Anne Hathaway
Released On: Mar 5, 2010

RT Critics’ Consensus: Tim Burton’s Alice sacrifices the book’s minimal narrative coherence — and much of its heart — but it’s an undeniable visual treat.

Top 10 Best Movies of 2010

How to Train Your Dragon

Directed by: Peter Hastings, Chris Sanders
Starring: Jay Baruchel, Gerard Butler
Released On: Mar 26, 2010

RT Critics’ Consensus: Boasting dazzling animation, a script with surprising dramatic depth, and thrilling 3-D sequences, How to Train Your Dragon soars.

Top 10 Best Movies of 2010

Hot Tub Time Machine

Directed by: Steve Pink
Starring: John Cusack, Rob Corddry
Released On: Mar 26, 2010

RT Critics’ Consensus: It’s flagrantly silly script — and immensely likable cast — make up for most of its flaws.

Top 10 Best Movies of 2010

Date Night

Directed by: Shawn Levy
Starring: Steve Carell, Tina Fey, Mark Wahlberg
Released On: Apr 9, 2010

RT Critics’ Consensus: An uneasy blend of action and comedy, Date Night doesn’t quite live up to the talents of its two leads, but Steve Carell and Tina Fey still manage to shine through most of the movie’s flaws.

Top 10 Best Movies of 2010

Kick-Ass

Directed by: Matthew Vaughn
Starring: Aaron Johnson, Nicolas Cage
Released On: Apr 16, 2010

RT Critics’ Consensus: Not for the faint of heart, Kick-Ass takes the comic adaptation genre to new levels of visual style, bloody violence, and gleeful profanity.

Top 10 Best Movies of 2010

Iron Man 2

Directed by: Jon Favreau
Starring: Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Scarlett Johansson
Released On: May 7, 2010

RT Critics’ Consensus: It isn’t quite the breath of fresh air that Iron Man was, but this sequel comes close with solid performances and an action-packed plot.

Top 10 Best Movies of 2010

Toy Story 3

Directed by: Lee Unkrich
Starring: Tom Hanks, Tim Allen, Joan Cusack, Don Rickles
Released On: Jun 18, 2010

RT Critics’ Consensus: Deftly blending comedy, adventure, and honest emotion, Toy Story 3 is a rare second sequel that really works.
