By Erika Mionis 2010 has been a big year for movies. Sequels like Iron Man 2 and Toy Story 3 have ruled at the box office, while animated films like Despicable Me and How to Train Your Dragon have made their marks as well.

Patrick Swayze once said that he wanted to achieve the heights of Fred Astaire, Gene Kelly, and Errol Flynn before he died. And in many people's opinions, the recently deceased actor/dancer did—fighting the bad guys as Flynn might in Red Dawn, dancing with the athleticism of Kelly in Dirty Dancing, and even serenading Jennifer Grey as Astaire might in the same movie.
