At first glance, one might think that 2010 was a weak year for sci-fi films. Truth is, its handful of good-to-great sci-fi films mark a fairly typical calendar year for the genre. 2010 just happened to be the follow-up to the '09 blowout roster of 'Moon,' 'District 9,' 'Avatar,' 'Pandorum,' 'Knowing,' 'Watchmen' and 'Star Trek.' That's a tough act to follow, but let's see how the year's offerings rank.

10. 'Tron: Legacy' -- Sci-fi has long been a genre associated with all of the movie magic a filmmaker can afford, and that's exactly where 'Tron: Legacy' delivers. It might stumble in more than a few areas, but when it comes to providing a special effects-coated spectacle that sounds as good as it looks, 'Tron' does precisely that.
