Your Top 20 Movies of the 2010s
« on: December 15, 2019, 03:25:03 AM »
So what are your Top 20 movies of the decade? While maybe not the truly elite tier, I'll put forth some candidates with a full list later.

The Favourite: Simply stellar performances centered around great cinematography, clothing, and an engaging plot. Olivia Coleman kills it but Rachel Weisz and Emma Stone matched her scene for scene. One of my personal top choices.

The Neon Demon: Polarizing film no doubt by Nicholas Refn but I adored everything about it. The plot isn't the strongest but the visuals are just gorgeous, the score is really fantastic, and the performances are a lot of fun especially Jena Malone who I've always had a soft spot for.

Logan: A perfect sendoff to Hugh Jackman's Wolverine character. Dafne Keen is amazingly memorable considering the performances by Jackman and Stewart but the plot arc and violence are all top notch. It still holds up for me as a fantastic movie with one of Jackman's best performances.

Mad Max: Fury Road All about the stunt work and set pieces here. Tom Hardy is solid but Charlize Theron stole the movie and any viewer can point to several different scenes that would be iconic in any other movie as a standalone but all flow really well in this one.

Off the top of my head, my personal favorites at least...

Turbo Kid
John Wick
Warrior
21 Jump Street
22 Jump Street
Mad Max: Fury Road
Avengers
The Cabin in the Woods
Green Room
Avengers: Infinity War
Avengers: Endgame
It Follows
Sinister
Christmas Chronicles
Get Out
Captain America 2: The Winter Soldier
Bone Tomahawk
The Purge: Anarchy
The Raid: Redemption
You're Next
It: Chapter One
The Invitation
Chronicle
The Autopsy of Jane Doe
Deathgasm
Cheap Thrills
The Guest
Fast Five
Edge of Tomorrow
Dredd

A ton more that I'm missing. I enjoyed much more of what I watched this past decade than I hated, but I've also been much more selective in what I spend my time on.

Turned this into a Top 20 list so we'll see what answers we get from various posters. Should be pretty interesting. I'll try to formulate a rough list later on.

My reaction to this thread title was "Have I seen 20 new movies this decade?" 

I can say I took a lot of heat for being unimpressed with Mad Max: Fury Road and trolling my buddy for weeks over "that movie with all the dust flying around"

I just have no attention span, so I spend movies drinking on the couch and reading TSM.

Yeah. I've gotten a little bit better about seeing new movies since I've been in a relationship the last two years but I could probably count on one hand the number of movies I saw in theaters between 2011 and 2017.

I have almost definitely seen more than 20 new movies this decade but not by that much but nothing stands out as "God damn! That was the movie of the decade'

I had the same thought as Brody. Have I even seen twenty movies? My number one easily is Moonrise Kingdom. That's about as perfect a film as I'll see. Number two is Moana which is easily the best animated film Disney has ever made. Easily. My three through twenty in alphabetical order...

42
Birdman
Can You Ever Forgive Me?
The Death of Stalin
Despicable Me
The Edge of Seventeen
Fences
Frozen
The Grand Budapest Hotel
How To Survive a Plague
Isle of Dogs
The King's Speech
Lady Bird
Let the Fire Burn
Lincoln
Moneyball
The Muppets
Sorry To Bother You

FUUUUUUUCK, I forgot Birdman. That's one I was nuts about and was a rare example of a movie that just rocked everything out of the park for me.

I'm going to try to rank my list from above, with Birdman added in somewhere.

The Fits and Burning are great movies. Almost made my list. Most of these movies that aren't already on my list almost made my list. Still need to see Shirkers, Toni Erdmann, Parasite, and Holy Motors though.

I edited my earlier post into a top twenty list.

Also to the people coming in here to say they didn't watch twenty movies this decade: IM PROUD TO WATCH 100 NEW MOVIES A YEAR AND TO NOT HAVE A LIFE. I AM A MORE CULTURED MAN HAVING SAT THROUGH BOTH BOO MADEA MOVIES THIS DECADE

I've always wanted to recommend to people I know for them to watch Bone Tomahawk but...I don't think any of them could handle the cave scenes.

My dad's a big western buff so I've been morbidly hoping he'd come across it on a movie channel. Since the first hour or so is fairly straightforward western fare.

1 The Shape of Water
2 Wonder Woman
3 Bridesmaids
4 Lady Bird
5 Ingrid Goes West
6 The Florida Project
7 The Favourite
8 Suspiria
9 Flower
10 Cabin In The Woods
11 Can You Ever Forgive Me?
12 Get Out
13 Scott Pilgrim vs. the World
14 Super 8
15 Eighth Grade
16 Drive
17 I, Tonya
18 BlacKkKlansman
19 Wreck-It Ralph
20 Phantom Thread
21 Black Swan
22 The Disaster Artist
23 Her
24 Donald Cried
25 The Wolf of Wall Street

As a side note, the last movie I watched was Good Boys and it was really funny and I almost included it but I'm high so maybe I'll sit on that a little while.

A website called LADBible would vote the 4th or 5th Best Batman movie as the Top Film of the Decade.

It beat Wolf of Wall Street, Inception, and Toy Story 3...well, uh, British bros have interesting taste
