Step Up 3D, directed by Jon M. Chu, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2010 while Live To Tell by Lisa Gardner was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Vacuum with Gal Gabai. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Army of Two: The 40th Day or 101 MiniGolf World.
