Earlier, we posted a couple lists of the year's box office turkeys, and worst user-reviewed films. But since it's Thanksgiving, a holiday in which we're supposed to be thankful for the people in our lives and the rewards we've received over the past year, I thought it might be fun to start a discussion with you Fandango readers and talk about which 2010 films we're actually thankful for. These don't necessarily have to be the best films of the year – or even your favorite films of the year – but they should be films that make you happy to the point where if you ever met the filmmaker, you'd immediately thank them for making such a wonderful/ballsy movie. Here are my five...
1. Toy Story 3: I'm thankful that Pixar made an animated movie that simultaneously made kids laugh and adults cry. Not an easy thing to do.
2. Inception: I'm thankful Warner Bros. allowed Christopher Nolan to take a break from the Batman franchise in order to make a really slick, original film that blew us away with its big-budget visuals while proving that not all summer blockbusters lack brains.
Toy Story 3, Inception, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, Splice, Let Me In, Piranha 3D
Thankfor for NOLEN's INCEPTION "You mustn't be a afraid to aim a little bigger darlin'..." I lov that line by Eames from INCEPTION (fav movie of the Summer and year 2010) - the whole movie rocked Starring Leonardo DiCaprio/as Cobb and Cast of incrediable talents that brought Director Christopher NOLEN's movie to vivid life. Other "thankful" movies: Iron Man 2, How To Train Your Dragon (awesome action-pack animation), Unstoppable (Wow, full speed action!!), Resident Evil 4, PARANORMAL Activity 2, HP-7 (high intense Drama/Wizard film...'loved it!), Twilight-Eclipse (nice to see the other Characters stories reveiled as well...'chilly) etc.,. just to name a few movies I highly enjoyed & "thankful" for.
TOY STORY 3 was pretty awesome, too: very emotional warm Family film. Loved it!!! Also a #1 favorite of 2010 along with INCEPTION and other "thankful" favorites listed above in previous comment.
So far this year, I'm thankful for Scott Pilgrim, Inception, Machete, The Social Network, and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part One.
I am thankful for Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World, How to Train your Dragon, Paranormal Activity 2, Toy Story 3, and Inception.( I can't wait for TRON: LEGACY though... <3)
Mine are Despicable Me, Scott Pilgrim, A Nightmare On Elm Street, How To Train Your Dragon and Paranormal Activity 2. Yeah I know, Paranormal is kinda bad, but I went to the midnite showing with my best friend and it was awesome.
INception and kickass tha'ts about it
So many... Kickass/Let me In/Social Network/Catfish/Easy A
just saw Unstoppable this week... thought it was a great way to "escape" in the action!
Harry potter 7.1, toy story 3, get him to the greek, how to train your dragon, and nothing else particularly stuck out to me, but love and other drugs was pretty good. get him to the greek and how to train your dragon are probably my two favorite movies at the moment... soooo good
Scott Pilgrim was my favorite film of the year and it is good to see studios making these kind of movie. Also thankful for Kickass, Jackass3d was fun, Loved inception and How to... Dragon. as well as Iron Man 2 and Toy Story 3 Was Excellient. Piranha 3D was the Best Worst movie of the year and was only worth it if you saw it in 3D but I loved it totally (I'm a sucker for ultimate campiness in films) I am also thankful that a Tron sequel is coming soon. And am thankful for all the 3D animated flicks that came out. Loved Megamind and Shrek. there are plenty of others but thats all that come to my mind currently.

What about Nightmare On Elm street and Saw
I can't remember any good films this year except Scott Pilgrim. I mean good like really good. I liked some others but they aren't That great. I bet Biutiful will be on my list by the end of this year though.
Sorry,but I can't take anyone who put Splice in that list seriously ever again. I agree with lots of the above choices,especially Inception and kudos to JAMLUCKI27 for putting Devil.It was a nice surprise.
Thankful for (5) Devil - most intense horror/drama/thriller I've seen in a while, (4) Prince of Persia - a bit long but was very true to the games, (3)Grown ups - I had not laughed that hard since the hangover, (2) toss up between Red and How to train your dragon. Red - a+ star line-up, good action (loved Bruce Willis, but didn't care for the chic so much), How to train your dragon was just awesome! Not only was the movie touching and funny with a bit of action thrown in but the music score was epic! I have both movie and music on my iphone.(1) Eclipse - I am a die-hard Twilight fan, they can do no wrong as far as i am concerned!
What almost made my list:
The sorcerer's apprentice, clash of the titans,A-team,Legion and paranormal act 2.
Glad to see How To Train Your Dragon made people's list. That with Toy Story 3 were great & Scott Pilgrim too. The Kids Are Alright deserves to be mentioned and I liked Knight & Day.
I hadn't seen Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part One yet sadly, I'm thankful for: Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'hoole, Megamind, Red, Iron Man 2, Inception, Alice in Wonderland, How to Train Your Dragon, Resident Evil: Afterlife, etc. I am NOT grateful for The Last Airbender though, one of the worst movies I've ever seen in my entire life!
Toy Story 3, Inception, How To Train Your Dragon, Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'hoole, and Despicable Me.
Honorable Mention: Tangled and Iron Man 2.
