The 10 most anticipated movies of 2010.

2009 has been a pathetic year in terms of quality and variety of movies. Most of the big budget ones were crappy and the best were some independent or very low budget movies like In the Loop, Moon and 500 Days of Summer. These are surprise packages and tough to predict. So like always I look at the Multi hundred million dollar, Super Star Studded, Auteur helmed movies to show us the path. Here are my top 10 most anticipated movies of 2010.

10. The Rum Diary: Johnny Depp is back serving Hunter S Thomson in another of his works after the dizzily brilliant fare: Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas. Well we will take anything with Johnny Boy. Just hoping it won’t make the Public Enemies.

9. Jonah Hex: A wild Wild West where bounty hunters and Voodo practitioners are involved. Based upon a comic book with a terribly scarred anti hero it throws me back to the good ol’ days. Dont tell me Megan Fox in hot Victorian lingerie wont delight you! 

8. Arrested Development: Everyone loved the TV show. Much to the delight of the fans it’s back in the form a movie. Sex and the City worked, The X files didn’t. But I am pretty sure with its fantastic humour Arrested Development wont disappoint the fans.
7. Shutter Island: This Martin Scorcese-Leonardo Di Caprio period thriller was supposed to release in 2009 but got pushed back. We cant wait to see what Marty has to follow up to his Oscar winning Departed. Something better I hope.

6. Robinhood: Another quintessential pair, ie of Ridley Scott and Russell Crowe is back. They try to repair the joke that was the last Robinhood movie was 20 years ago. Right up in Gladiator’s alley Scott must have put heart and soul into this after the performance of his last 2 movies.

5. Kickass: This might end up being the surprise package of the year. Matthew Vaughn, who also directed Layer Cake and Star Dust makes a movie in which a teenager just decides to be a superhero though he has no powers, training or meaningful reason to do so.

4. Inception: When Chris Nolan makes a movie, it can be certified to be of good cut, colour, clarity and carat. So if he goes onto make a thriller with Di Caprio, Michael Caine, Joseph Gordon Levitt, Cillian Murphy, Ellen Page and Marion Cottilard; how can you not notice all the 200 million dollars of it?

3. Toy Story 3: The movie that revolutionized the industry and delivered possibly the best ever sequel (yeah I even considered Godfather II) is back. Doesnt matter. The child in me says: Woody and Buzz are back! In 3D. Wooooooooow! 

2. Iron Man 2: If you have seen Iron Man and were wowed by its brilliant combination of comic book madness with deep sensibilities and the tinge of Robert Downey Jr’s wry humour, you would know what I am talking about.

1. Alice In Wonderland: The Greatest fantasy of all time meets Tim Burton and they put an over the top ensemble with Johnny Depp, Anne Hathaway, Stephen Fry, Alan Rickman and so on! Do we have the next Wizard of Oz in the making?

The Inevitably Anticipated. Sigh!
The following movies are all sequels and inevitably have got hoards of fans and whether you like them or not they are coming and making tons of cash at the B.O. Yes I am putting a top 5 for them too but they need no talking. They sell themselves.

5. Chronicle of Narnia: Dawn Treader
4. Sex and The City 2
3. Shrek Forever After
2. Twilight Saga: Eclipse
1. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Pt.1

Damn dude where is 'Green Zone'?

Green Zone was among the 34 movies i considered. Somehow it doesnt seem so appealing to me. Just missed out and would be in 11-15 along with Green Hornet, Expendables and Oobermind. Their stories seem tad routine though they have good cast/crew.
On the other hand I fear for Last Airbender which has a brilliant plot and legacy but has been handed over to our Man M.Night Shyamalan. May he have mercy on the anime
