Top Ten Films of the Last Ten Years - 2018 Edition


#1

What are your favourite ten films from the last ten years?

I found this article and wondered why we should let Simon Pegg have all of the fun?
https://www.empireonline.com/movies/news/simon-pegg-reveals-10-favourite-films-last-10-years/

His top 10, in no particular order:

District 9
Inception
The Grand Budapest Hotel
Under The Skin
Birdman
Whiplash
Ex Machina
Train To Busan

The Handmaiden

I’m still thinking up mine, but here are a couple of other people’s picks to get you motivated.

Andy Serkis:
Animal Kingdom
Birdman
Hunt For The Wilderpeople
Inglourious Basterds

The Wolf Of Wall Street

Matthew Vaughn:
The Dark Knight

1-10: Man of Steel.


#3

Ragranok
Guardians
Wolf
Django
Dark Knight
Avengers
Moneyball
Man of Steel
Mad Max

Not sure about the 10th yet.


#4

Is this one per year or just a lump sum?


#5

Such a coincidence that this thread has popped up given what I’m just about to post in the ‘what are you watching’ thread


#6

Inglorious Bastards
Inception
Whiplash
Birdman
Dark Knight
The Big Short
Fury Road
Arrival
Drive
Avengers

That was harder than I thought it would be


#7

Definitely not one per year. Just your top ten, overall.


#8

This is going to be a challenge.
Be back in a few hours.

Top 10 2008 - 2018

In no particular order

Black Swan
Step Brothers
Avatar
Mad Max Fury Road
Observe and Report
Baby Driver
Silver Linings Playbook
Wolf of Wall Street
Blade Runner 2049
Dark Knight Rises


#10

2008-2018 is eleven years. :thinking:


#11

Yes, but there were no good movies in 2011 so we’re just skipping right over that one.


#12

C’mon! Fast Five came out in 2011, and that was awesome!


#13

I don’t think I can name 10 movies that I thought were really great from the last ten years. Not that I’ve seen anyway.

A Serious Man was made in 2009 though and that is my all-time favorite movie.


#14

This is what I came up with:

The Grand Budapest Hotel
Inside Llewyn Davis
Man of Steel
Phantom Thread
A Serious Man
The Social Network
Synecdoche, New York
Toy Story 3
The Tree of Life
Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives

It’s weird to have two Coens in there, but those are my two favorite films of theirs, so. There are a lot of horror and horror-adjacent movies I have left off (that is almost its own list), and comedies too.


#15

So much harder picking any such top ten from the 21st century, not least of which because I hardly get the time to watch things other than keeping up with the superheroes and am increasingly aware that it doesn’t matter at all. Old man yells at clouds.

Anyway…

Inception
Whiplash
Logan
Avengers
Guardians of the Galaxy
Big Short
Grand Budapest Hotel
Inside Llewyn Davis
Moneyball
John Wick


#16

I can’t possibly do this another way, so here’re my favorites from each year:

  • The Dark Knight (2008)
  • Inglourious Basterds (2009)
  • Inception (2010)
  • Warrior (2011)
  • Django Unchained (2012)
  • Saving Mr. Banks (2013)
  • Interstellar (2014)
  • The Force Awakens (2015)
  • Arrival (2016)
  • Logan (2017)
  • Isle of Dogs (2018)

Sorry, I am unable to narrow it down to ten - although, I did cut out a lot of movies that I thought were great fun movies - but not consistent enough in quality to make the list.

  • The Wrestler
  • Let the Right One In
  • In Bruges
  • The Dark Knight
  • District 9
  • A Serious Man
  • Where the Wild Things Are

  • Animal Kingdom
  • Winter’s Bone
  • The Tree of Life
  • The Artist
  • Tinker Tailer Soldier Spy
  • Beasts of the Southern Wild
  • Perks of Being a Wallflower
  • Whiplash
  • Birdman
  • Arrival
  • La La Land
  • 10 Cloverfield Lane
  • Phantom Thread
  • Logan
  • Mother

Movies that I did not see that could possibly move to the list:
