Much has been debated about the quality of the top movies released this year, but that we were able to pull together a list of the 50 best movies of 2010 means it couldn't have been so bad after all.

After the jump, we count down our favorite movies of the year, from the mind-bending 'Inception' to the movie that may have defined our generation, 'The Social Network.'

Think you can figure out which movie topped our list? There's only one way to find out. - the Moviefone Editors, Dec. 21, 2010
