Directed by: Kevin Greutert

What it was about: Many horrors are among the list of movies turning 10 in 2020. Saw VII is known by a number of names, including Saw 3D and Saw: The Final Chapter. The last name should be a giveaway why it deserves a mention on this list. Did you realize that the franchise came to an end 10 years ago?
It all starts with a man who claims to have been a Jigsaw survivor. However, it soon turns out that he lied about it, and now Jigsaw wants to teach him a lesson. Bobby is thrown into a situation with just an hour to save his wife. Along the journey, he comes across all those who have helped him cover up his secrets.
The movie also wraps up the plot of Hoffman’s part in the games. We get a wrap-around to the first movie, taking us back to that bathroom where Gordon had to decide whether to lose his foot or lose his life.

What it was about: There were many excellent animated movies released in 2010. Despicable Me, Tangled, and Megamind are all excellent ones to check out. One of the movies turning 10 this year that will make you feel the oldest is Toy Story 3.
It took 11 years from the second movie to bring this. Nobody knew what to expect, but we certainly weren’t disappointed when it happened. With Andy going to college, he had to make a decision about his toys; toys that hadn’t been played with in years. He chooses to keep Andy and puts the others in the black bag for the attic, but his mom mistakes the bag for trash.
The toys, believing they’re being discarded, head to the car so they can be donated instead. That leads to a journey of them finding a home in a daycare, where things may not be as happy as they initially seem.
