    Default Your Favorite Movies of the 2010s

    I've seen a lot of people here cast a bit of shade at recent movies, and that's fine of course, but I actually think it's one of the best decades for films!! What are your favorites? Here's my top ten:

    1. La La Land (2016) - my favorite of the decade, absolutely incredible
    2. Over the Garden Wall (2014)
    3. Parasite (2019)
    4. Interstellar (2014)
    5. The Favourite (2018)
    6. Before Midnight (2013)
    7. The Tree of Life (2011)
    8. Whiplash (2014)
    9. The Florida Project (2017)
    10. Portrait of a Lady on Fire (2019)

    Other movies I absolutely loved were Frances Ha (2012), The Master (2012), Inside Out (2015), Moonrise Kingdom (2012), Eighth Grade (2018), The Grand Budapest Hotel (2014), Marriage Story (2019), Lady Bird (2017), The Irishman (2019), The Wolf of Wall Street (2013), Little Women (2019), Toy Story 3 (2010), Your Name (2016), Pain and Gain (2013), Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2 (2011), 1917 (2019), Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2 (2017), Black Panther (2018), Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017), and Puffin Patrol (2015).

    I'm one of those shade throwers, though I don't limit my derision to post 2010. There's very little innovation and a lot of derivative imitation in modern corporate media, IMO. That said, there's always a few gems that slip past the machinery. I looked on Imdb's top movies post 2010 and was surprised how many films I enjoyed were there.

    Inception 2010
    Arrival 2016 - I thought the nonlinear style was creative
    Django Unchained 2012 - Tarentino is a creative genius
    Hacksaw Ridge 2016
    The Martian 2015 - while I think enough effort has been expended to save Matt Damon, it was entertaining
    Dunkirk 2017
    A Quiet Place 2018 - thought this was pretty creative
    Baby Driver 2017 - Edgar Wright is a genius. There I said it.
    Joker 2019
    Argo 2012
    Looper 2012 - loved the premise
    Edge of Tomorrow 2014 - one of the best sci fi movies of all time
    1917 (2019) - the cinematography alone is a win, but nice straightforward story as well

    I'm realizing that my answer to the "favorite recording" question is usually Bruno Walter.

    The best thing to come out of this decade was the all-video game Contradiction, that in, purely just like any movie. The pure quality of it is understated and subtle, not like a great action flick, but like a Silence of Lambs or Mulholland Dr. But for greater reasons I wouldn't recommend watching any trailers of it. It's something that must be experienced anew firsthand.
