MOVIE REVIEWS - 2010
As the trend towards bigger, tentpole franchise movies intensified, studios increasingly became hell-bent on securing certain release dates between mid-May and mid-August in order to secure a position on the north American Summer vacation calendar.
More big movies compressed into less time saw the early months of each year being used to reelase less desirable titles, while the September to December period became the months where "Award" bait films were released. The mid-December through mid-January period was still used for franchise releases, but each studio only had one signficant release throughout this period.
The 2010 North American Summer window saw releases such as HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS - PART ONE, the excellent TOY STORY 3 and the ill-conceived IRON MAN 2.
The most impressive film of 2010 was alos one of the best reviewwed and financially successful; Christopher Nolan's INCEPTION.
Proving that a good story is always vital, no matter how good the cast, the production values or the visual effects, INCEPTION remains a thought-provoking story and a fantastic piece of cinema.
