Ten best movies of 2010

If you haven't yet seen any or all of my top 10, I envy what awaits you. These are Monitor Film Critic Peter Rainer's favorite films of the year.

8. Toy Story 3

In this film publicity image released by Disney Jessie, Buzz Lightyear, and Woody, are shown in a scene from " Toy Story 3."

I can't think of another Part 3 in the movies that is as good as "Toy Story 3" (and no, I haven't forgotten "Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King"). It is always an amazement to me how animated characters – in computer-generated 3-D no less – can evoke such deep emotions from us. A triumphant conclusion to a series that just kept getting better and better.
