#10. ALICE IN WONDERLAND - 2010
 Director: Tim Burton

One of my more intriguing lists with Tim Burton the dominant director on here, but plenty of strong films making this list though there are a lot of recent releases on it. Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter both battle it out but Jackson's epic trilogy sweeps to victory here, never in doubt of course. Avatar was just considered here despite its sci-fi roots while Sleepy Hollow would have also been looked at in Horror. Tomorrow will look at another popular genre....Gangster!
