The last 4 films I saw in 2010...

UK Release: 16th July 2010
Watched on DVD: 28th and 29th December 2010
Rating: 12A
Runtime: 2hrs 18 mins
Tagline: Your mind is the scene of the crime. 
IMDb Plot Summary: A contemporary sci-fi actioner set within the architecture of the mind. In a world where technology exists to enter the human mind through dream invasion, a single idea within one's mind can be the most dangerous weapon or the most valuable asset.

A Quick Review: In one word: incredible. This film was for me the best film of 2010. 

Score: 9.5/10

UK Release: 3rd December 2010
Watched in Cinema: 29th December 2010
Rating: PG
Runtime: 1hr 35 mins
Tagline: Giving bad a good name. 
IMDb Plot Summary: After super-villain Megamind (Ferrell) kills his good-guy nemesis, Metro Man (Pitt), he becomes bored since there is no one left to fight. He creates a new foe, Titan (Hill), who, instead of using his powers for good, sets out to destroy the world, positioning Megamind to save the day for the first time in his life.

A Quick Review: Much better than expected. Truly was 'for all the family', it was very funny and had a decent plot which worked well. 
Score: 6.5/10

Love Actually
UK Release: 21st November 2003
Watched on TV: 29th and 30th December 2010
Rating: 15
Runtime: 2 hrs 15 mins
Tagline: Love actually... is all around. 
IMDb Plot Summary: Follows the lives of eight very different couples in dealing with their love lives in various loosely and interrelated tales all set during a frantic month before Christmas in London, England.

A Quick Review: Classic Christmas viewing: warms the heart on a cold winter’s evening. 
Score: 7.5/10

The Other Boleyn Girl
UK Release: 7th March 2008
Watched on TV: 23rd and 31st December 2010
Rating: 12A
Runtime: 1hr 55 mins
Tagline: The only thing that could come between these sisters... is a kingdom.
IMDb Plot Summary: A sumptuous and sensual tale of intrigue, romance and betrayal set against the backdrop of a defining moment in European history: two beautiful sisters, Anne and Mary Boleyn, driven by their family's blind ambition, compete for the love of the handsome and passionate King Henry VIII.

A Quick Review: As a fan of the tudor period, and having read the book long before the film was made I was expecting more from it. Unfortunately the film didn’t live up to the book, but for those that haven’t read it, it is still an interesting look at Henry VIII and how he changed England forever for just one woman. 
Score: 6/10
