Video-game movies, action movies, heist movies and superhero movies — they all had dazzling reinventions. Here are the 10 best and worst SF/fantasy movies of 2010.Best:10.The Last ExorcismThe "found footage" horror/disaster movie is fast becoming a cliche, and tons more are on the way. But there's still room for a clever, exciting take on the genre, as proved by this film about a preacher who decides to prove that exorcisms are fake — so he invites a documentary crew along to document the trickery, as he does one last exorcism on a disturbed girl. Only one problem: the preacher leads the slick city film crew into a situation that's a lot more messed up than the usual small-town case of madness. And our post-modern evangelical preacher quickly finds himself out of his depth. The progression into horror feels logical and unforced, as everybody grapples with what to do about this poor disturbed girl — never allowing themselves to think her possession could be real.
