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.
