JUAN'S TOP 5 OF 2010!

We're a little late with this one but, as the saying I invented goes, better late than never! 

The cast of The Everything Film Show has come up with their top 5 films of 2010, and we're sharing them here with you. 2010 started off weak, but finished pretty strong, and I think, years from now, we'll consider a few of these films classics.

Enjoy the lists, and if you have your own you'd like to share, feel free in the comments section! 

Juan's Top 5 Films of 2010:

5. How to Train your Dragon

Dreamwork's most emotional animated feature, with a heartfelt "boy and his car" story, awesome and funny characters and great action sequences.

4. The Social Network

Director David Fincher does it again this time aided by a soon to be oscar-winning script by Aaron Sorkin and powerful performances byJesse Eisenberg and Andrew Garfield. A revealing story about humans most elemental motivations and its consequences. The best movie of the year but not my favorite film of the year.

3. Toy Story 3

 Another Pixar masterpiece, both a coming of age and an escape-from-prison tale that tugs at the viewer's emotional strings. And that final sequence on the conveyor belt.... The second most emotional film of the year for me.

2. Never Let Me Go

Director Mark Romanek has crafted a simple, focused and powerful tale about love and living your life to its fullest. By setting his lens in the amazing interactions between Andrew Garfield, Kiera Knightly and Carey Mulligan, Director Romanek presents to us real ethical dilemmas that should be explored and an invitation to live our lives in the present, for its the only time we truly have. The most emotional film of the year for me, it shook me to the core.

1. Inception

Film is about taking chances, breaking the mold and taking the audience to places they have never thought of or if they have, present to them a physical construct of those dreams. Director Christopher Nolan has crafted his magnum opus with this film, a fun, action packed, intelligent and explosive piece of cinema that enchants your brain, your emotions and your senses. In a time where creativity and originality are being sacrificed for safe, soulless and derivative films, it's a true fresh of breath air to be treated to a masterpiece such as this.
