Best Films of the Decade

Now that we’re in the 2020s, I thought I’d look back on the last decade (I don’t care about the technical cut-off for the decade so you can just belay that crap) in film.  Every year has a bunch of great films. Some years definitely have more than others, and there were a few in the 2010s that were really good. It was not always easy to pick.

You’ll see a couple times where I’ve changed my answer from my original picks for that year.  This in no way implies that I don’t think my original choice was great. It just means that as time has gone on, I’ve found myself enjoying a different movie more.  Looking back at my top 10 lists from various years, I’d definitely rearrange them now, especially having seen more movies from various years that I missed at the time.


2010:  I said then: The American.  I say now: Tron Legacy.

2011:  I said then: Drive.  I say now: Drive.

2012:  I said then: Moonrise Kingdom.  I say now: Dredd.

2013:  I said then: Only God Forgives.  I say now: Only God Forgives.

2014:  I said then: Grand Budapest Hotel.  I say now: Grand Budapest Hotel.

2015: I said then: Mad Max: Fury Road.  I say now: Mad Max: Fury Road.

2016:  I said then: Hunt for the Wilderpeople.  I say now: Hunt for the Wilderpeople.

2017:  I said then: Get Out.  I say now: Get Out.

2018:  I said then: Mandy.  I say now: Mandy. 

2019:  I say now: The Man Who Killed Hitler and then The Bigfoot


I can’t wait to see what the next ten years will bring.
