She said: Best films of 2010

QUESTION 1: What were the best films of 2010?
QUESTION 2: What were the most overrated films of 2010?

She Said's most overrated films:

Sherlock Holmes.

I know I am going to get into trouble for saying this but I thought it was dreadful. Not only did I fall asleep, which I have only ever done twice or thrice at most ever, but it was just like watching something British being battered with the Hollywood sign. I am not saying this because I am a big Arthur Conan Doyle fan - to be honest if I had never heard of Sherlock Holmes before I still would have thought the film was overrated. Now please don't hurt me.

Now, don't get me wrong - I really enjoyed this film. But it was extrememly overrated. There is a trend with big animated films with huge stars in. The marketing teams tend to repeatedly hold up a sign in front of you for months saying "YOU WILL LOVE THIS - IT IS HILARIOUS" that when it comes to the actual film there is big anti-climax. Plus I hate Jonah Hill. Shiver.

Legends of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole.

I fell asleep during this film as well. Yawny-McYawnerson. It could have done with being about forty minutes shorter. I was expecting big things from this. It had a title theme by 30 Seconds to Mars for Gandalf's sake. But alas. It just 'weren't all that'.

Clash of the Titans.

Not worth the 3D and, to be quite honest, I put it on par with Percy Jackson. If not slightly behind. I can't really remember much about the film - always a bad sign when the film was supposed to be a blockbuster hit. Same goes for Robin Hood, the third film I fell asleep through this year.

  1. Personally, I enjoyed Sherlock Holmes. And I honestly didn't expect to. When I saw the trailer, my thought was, "Great cast, HORRIBLE IDEA." I believe I was mistaken.

    Was it a cinematic masterpiece? God no. Was it an enjoyable movie? Yes. Especially, admittedly, as the in-"flight" movie for the train I was on down to Portland when I saw it.
