    A good list. I agree that Harry Potter – movie 7 was very enjoyable. The movie covered the first 2/3rds of the novel, so the final movie will be much faster-paced and highly emotional. I haven’t seen How to Train Your Dragon, but I’ve heard great things. As for VDT, I was severly disappointed. It wasn’t terrible but it was rather mediocre. In my books, Inception fits the bill much better as being one of the top speculative movies of 2010.

  2. Thanks for playing along, Christian. I never saw Inception so I don’t know how I’d rate it.

    Interesting fact about Dawn Treader—the friend I saw the movie with hasn’t read the book, at least not for a long, long time. She didn’t remember the story at all. Her reaction? This one was the best of the three. She loved it.

    As we were discussing the movie afterwards, I mentioned some of the concerns bloggers had voiced. She could see the points, but I don’t think it dampened her enthusiasm.

    It didn’t dampen mine either. I saw the “issues” and because I knew the story, wondered why the movie folks downplayed some parts or squeezed others together. But in the end, I thought it was a thoroughly enjoyable, satisfying movie-going experience. I can see many people buying the books because of the movie. That in itself is a huge plus, I think.


  3. […] in my list of 2010 favorites, I have to bump Dawn Treader from the number two spot in movies to number three. In its place […]
