From kings to cowboys: Top films of 2010

The best movies of the past year have a whole world of heroes

There's something for everyone in this year's crop of annual "best" and "worst" lists compiled by the Weekly's three film critics.

Do you like dark tales about wartime Lebanon or Wall Street chicanery? Or would you prefer to weep over plucky little toys overcoming adversity, or perhaps root for a king conquering his stammer? Whatever your movie preferences, we've got you covered.

In a diverse selection of picks and pans, Weekly critics Peter Canavese, Tyler Hanley and Susan Tavernetti look back over 2010 in film. And, in case you need some advice on whom to cheer for or razz, Hanley lists the best cinematic heroes and villains of the year.
