Sometimes I get a little amped up about a movie without keeping in mind that it's going to be a few years before it actually hits theaters (an occupational hazard, I guess). But 2010 is finally here, and it's safe to say that the year is shaping up to be a pretty good one at the movies. Though when it comes to 2010 there is one movie that has me on high alert: Christopher Nolan's Inception. The sci-fi thriller set "in the architecture of the mind" is shrouded in secrecy, but all I had to see was the city folding in on itself in that trailer combined with my rabid appreciation of Nolan's work and I was sold.
Now don't mistake me, it was a close call for the top spot in 2010, and there are plenty of movies that have my inner dork on a countdown clock. Starting with the Clash of the Titans' remake (let's just say that hearing Liam Neeson yell "Release the Kracken!" was a personal highlight), and more comedy, sci-fi, and comic book heroes than you could shake a stick at. So while I'm pretty psyched to see to Paul, Wall Street 2, The Green Hornet, and the big daddy, Iron Man 2, I didn't forget about Kick-Ass, Priest, Jonah Hex, The Losers, Green Zone, Shutter Island, Alice in Wonderland, or Cop Out -- and those are just the tip of the iceberg. But in the end, the 2010 movie season won't begin for me until July 16, when I finally find out what the hell Inception is actually about.
Sound off in the comments on the movie you are most looking forward to in 2010...
