He, accompanied by his wife Elizabeth, visits many doctors but nothing works out. Finally on Elizabeth’s suggestion he visits Lionel Logue, a speech therapist.

2. TOY STORY 3
Pixar is back to the Toy Story series after Ratatouille, WALL-E and Up. Toy Story 3 is packed with loads of fun and plenty of jokes pretty much like the first two instalments of the series. The old characters Woody, Buzz, and the gang team up for yet another adventure. Rest assured that this is going to be one hell of a movie with more twists and turns that you can hardly breathe. There is no doubt that this is the best animated film of 2010.

There would have been few doubts in your minds on which film would top my list of best Hollywood films of 2010. Inception comes from a person who only knows to create block busters – Yup; I’m talking about Christopher Nolan. If I had written a post about best films of 2008, Nolan would have won again with his Dark Knight – a film which broke collection records that year. So coming to Inception, Nolan has crafted a movie that’s beyond brilliant creating his own collection of rules in the best Sci-Fi Action film of the Decade.
Leonardo DiCaprio - Cobb
Joseph Gordon-Levitt - Arthur
Ellen Page - Ariadne
