Science Fiction/Fantasy Films in 2010—What Happened? | Tor.com | Science fiction and fantasy | Blog posts:
"In 2009 the genre gave us Moon, District 9, Watchmen, The Road, The Time Traveler’s Wife, Cold Souls, Coraline, and yes, Star Trek.� Naturally, there were also some outright stinkers that year. (Wolverine, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen)

On the other hand, 2010 hasn’t seemed to give us as many SFF movies that “tried.” Of course Inception is in there, as is Scott Pilgrim. An argument could certainly be made for Never Let Me Go and Kick-Ass certainly deserves an honorable mention, but it’s nowhere near as strong as something from 2009. For the most part, the 2010 SFF movie list looks something like this: Hot Tub Time Machine, Clash of the Titans, Alice in Wonderland, Predators, The Lightning Thief, Iron Man 2, and if you look at it from a certain perspective, Sex & The City 2."

Couldn't agree more. Inception was a pretty great movie, but there was nothing else that could even be taken seriously as a SFF movie (Hot Tub Time Machine was great, but as a comedy)
