Best of the decade 2010-2019 (film)

Here's my list of about 10 movies which were great in the past decade. Mind you, I haven't seen everything in 2019 (or previous) years, but I've seen a ton of comic book films and obviously Denis Villenueve and Christopher Nolan stuff.

Quite clearly for me, Mad Max was the best thing I saw. I think everyone would agree that it's the most transcendent/iconic for filmmaking in the 2010s.
  • Inception (2010)
  • The Dark Knight Rises (2012)
  • Prisoners (2013)
  • The Wolf of Wall Street (2013)
  • Gravity (2013)
  • Gone Girl (2014)
  • ⭐ Mad Max: Fury Road (2015)
  • Blade Runner 2049 (2017)
  • Avengers: Infinity War (2018)
  • Tie: Black Panther (2018) or Deadpool (2016) or X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014)
As I finish this list, I'm going to see Star Wars: Skywalker in a few hours ...It has nothing to do with the list above... Wish me luck!

blog update: Best of 2019 and the decade


Looks like we're fully into the "end of the year" cycle... Tons of sites are posting their best-of lists. I've been listening to a lot of good tunes and a heap of great cinema. I think it's a little too early to post my lists. Over the next weeks, I'll be researching my "best of 2019" and "best of the decade". If you can't wait until January/February (maybe April), I'll make some crystal ball award season predictions now... 🔮

  • Billie Eilish will be the toast of the town. She'll win many awards (like the Grammy).
  • Once Upon a Time In Hollywood will win the Best Picture Oscar. I personally don't agree, but experience tells me it'll win... or come close to the win.
  • Tom Hanks 
  • Watchmen will get tons of attention. I haven't seen it, but I'm reading it's good.

Those are my most lucid predictions. I'm excited for several December movies, including the intriguing Richard Jewell dramatization.

 I'll have several lists ready for the cold and icy winter that's coming! ☃️

Movies watched in 2020

Here's my annual list. I beat 2019 by about 60 . I stopped tracking TV series, too. The only films I saw in theaters were: Star Wars IX,...
