Your Top Movies of the Last Decade

Taking a leaf from the top games of the last decade thread, applying it to movies here. Not that by decade I mean the 2010s, so we're talking the 2010-2018 time period.

So, on that note:

10) Viceroy's House
9) The Reluctant Fundamentalist
8) The Wolf of Wall Street
7) Eye in the Sky
6) Zootopia
5) Bridge of Spies
4) The Fencer
3) Blade Runner 2049
2) Gravity
1) The Descendants

So, post, discuss, or...something.

In random order...

Mad Max: Fury Road
Krampus
Arrival
Fantastic Mr. Fox
The Tale of Princess Kaguya
No Country for Old Men
Her
Drive
The Nice Guys
The Hateful Eight

Yeah, I cheated a bit -- I had a hard enough time coming up with 10 as it is.

Honourable mentions go to Zootopia, and Guardians of the Galaxy.

Let Me In
The Crazies
The Conjuring 2
The Taking of Deborah Logan
I Spit on your grave
The Autopsy of Jane Doe
Sicario
Train to Busan
It Follows
Hounds of Love

I guess in order by release...

1.) The Crazies (2010)
2.) Predators (2010)
3.) Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol (2011)
4.) Dredd (2012)
5.) The World's End (2013)
6.) Edge of Tomorrow (2014)
7.) Guardians of the Galaxy (2014)
8.) John Wick (2014)
9.) The Martian (2015)
10.) 10 Cloverfield Lane (2016)

This list was kinda hard to come up with. I actually had to find a list of all movies released from 2010 to now just to remember what movies I actually saw during that period. There really weren't a whole lot I'd put on a general favorites list, not constrained by time period. John Wick, Dredd, and Guardians of the Galaxy probably... the rest...? Ehhh... probably not.

Granted, my all-time favorite movies tend to be from between '75 and '95. John Wick, Dredd, and Guardians of the Galaxy all being love letters to that time period probably isn't a coincidence.

In alphabetical order:

The A-Team
Ant-man
The Avengers
Captain Underpants
Coco
Guardians of the Galaxy volume 1 and 2
Deadpool
Moana
Scott Pilgrim vs the World
Zootopia

...What can I say? I tend to prefer animation, science fiction and action films.

Hounds of Love

Good choice on It Follows; it's totally in my list as well. Train to Busan was pretty well done, too. I thought I spit on Your Grave was pre-2Ks? If it's a remake, I'd likely pass- revenge pron isn't really my bag (though I thought the first Hostel was a fine example of the genre, as far as I could tell). The Crazies was also quite entertaining to me.

If you haven't seen it yet, I'd like to recommend The Wailing. Someone with a list like yours, I'd like to hear your take on it.

I'll upload my list later when I get a mo.

Only CrazyGirl17 put Zootopia on the list. The rest of you are disqualified.

There hasn't been many outstanding movie of the decade. Winter Solider and Gaurdians of the Galaxy 1 get a little nod, but mainly because they were way better than the average Marvel movie.

But then I don't have a top 10 movies ever. Movies aren't worth it

Lets see.

Mad Max Fury Road
Zootopia
My Little Pony: The movie
Guardians of the Galaxy 2
Captain America Winter Solder
Dredd
Moon
The Nice Guys
Deadpool
Get Out

Worgen:

Mad Max Fury Road
Zootopia
My Little Pony: The movie
Guardians of the Galaxy 2
Captain America Winter Solder
Dredd
Moon
The Nice Guys
Deadpool
Get Out

I didn't like the MLP movie. I couldn't get passed the art style. It was so cheap looking, and the voice over never synced with the mouths. Felt more like a Thunderbird's version of Avengers than an improved concept.

Although I did hear the animation was all done in German, and was dubbed English, so that might be it...

Certified Copy
It's Such a Beautiful Day
The Wolf of Wall Street
Hill of Freedom
The Life of Riley
Phoenix
The Forbidden Room
Chevalier
Sieranevada
Staying Vertical

Something like that? A top 20 would be more comfortable for me probably.

The basic redesigns kinda annoyed me. I mean they are supposed to be like 4 feet tall or so but everything in the movie just is so much bigger then they are. Other then that I loved it, I didn't notice anything with the voice sync like that aside from the oddness of any animation where they have a bit to detailed lip syncing without going a bit further and doing disney lip sync. Granted I've only seen it twice but I've really liked it both times. Sure its got its flaws, like Sia pony is totally unnecessary, Fluttershy did like nothing, the other Princesses again get Worfed, and the last half hour wasn't just the Storm King and Discord insulting each other. But it was still really good.
Plus how can you not love some of the songs?



EDIT: I just remembered that the start of it annoyed me and made me really worried it would suck when I originally saw it. Really not a fan of that stupid 'we got the beat remix.'

Here's what I've loved so far in this decade in really no order...

-Best Marvel movies: Avengers, Guardians, Civil War (cheating with a 3-for-1 but I love those 3)
-John Wick (quite possibly the perfectly paced action movie ever made)
-Logan (what a sendoff to an iconic character and role even though the past movies aren't really good besides like X2)
-Lego Batman (so damn entertaining and funny)
-Ex Machina (some amazing sci-fi)
-The Martian (Matt Damon sciencing the shit out of it)
-Cabin in the Woods (super entertaining horror deconstruction)
-10 Cloverfield Lane (John "fucking" Goodman)
-Django Unchained (Christoph Waltz is so good)
-The Handmaiden (to get a bit artsy and foreign I guess although it is damn great)

the December King:

If you haven't seen it yet, I'd like to recommend The Wailing. Someone with a list like yours, I'd like to hear your take on it.

To be honest I didn't really enjoy that movie that much. I found it kind of slow and it didn't really grab me for whatever reason. Not the biggest fan of genre mixes either. Though, maybe I would have found the police incompetence funnier if I found the horror at the heart of the movie more compelling. I don't know, but Asian horror movies in general don't really do it for me. Like for example Ju-on, The Ring or The Grudge I found them all really boring. I do think their thrillers or more serious dramas are often terrific though. The Korean movie The Chaser is probably my favorite followed closely by Pandora. The latter I found particularly harrowing.
