Todd Rigney’s Top 10 Flicks of 2010

Prev2 of 11Next

Although I tend to shy away from movies that take place in one solitary location, director Rodrigo Cortés’ fascinating thriller “Buried” managed to captivate yours truly while proving once again why Ryan Reynolds is a solid, well-rounded actor. Despite the singular setting and limited cast, the film trucks along at a fairly brisk pace, arriving at its decidedly startling climax precisely when it needs to. Even if you’re not a Reynolds fan, you have to admit that the guy actually manages to hold his own this time around. Of course, being extremely claustrophobic may have influenced my opinion exponentially.

Author: Todd Rigney

Todd was raised on a steady diet of Hollywood blockbusters, late-night Cinemax programming, and USA’s “Up All Night,” which may explain why his taste in movies is more than a little questionable. When he isn’t providing news and reviews for Beyond Hollywood, he can be found lounging lazily on his couch, perched in front of his television, or dwelling in places where direct sunlight can be easily avoided. He's happily married, in his 30's, and totally badass. If you'd like to reach Todd, you can follow him on Twitter or send him email/scoops to todd (at)

    I really like some of these choices! Except MACHETE. That movie was an orgy of mess, IMO.

    Machete was great until the last action sequences and then it was just some of the worst directed action ever.

    Couldnt really comment on the last top 10 list as I hadn’t seen most of the films, but I definitely have seen a decent amount of these. Good list.
