2012: Dredd

Shouldn't that be Skyfall?  ;)

Agreed. 2013 was surprisingly tough though, struggled to think of much I really loved from that year.

2014 ... (a very good year, this one – hard to choose!)

Whilst the films I'm into are wildly different from the choices so far, it's interesting to note that 2014 also ranks extremely highly in my own half-cobbled-together list - though 2012 seems to have been the real standout for me. I'm struggling with 2016 though.

Moonlight?
Hell or High Water?
Arrival?
The Handmaiden?
Deadpool?
Captain America: Civil War?

None of them do anything for ya?

I liked Captain America: Civil War, but I couldn't say I loved it. If anything, I might go High-Rise, 'cos it was quite stylish. (It's arguably a 2015 film, but 2016 in UK.)

Everyone else is just typing 'film 201X' into google, right? I couldn't tell you which years these came out (or which year I saw them) if you held a gun to my head:


2010: True Grit      Four Lions/Winter's Bone/The Other Guys/The Social Network
2011: Take Shelter      Drive/The Help/Moneyball
2012: Pitch Perfect      21 Jump Street/Chronicle
2013: Wolf Of Wall Street      Alan Partridge/Gravity/Lone Survivor
2014: Grand Budapest Hotel      Lucy/Whiplash/Edge of Tomorrow/Paddington
2015: Sicario      Straight Outta Compton/The Big Short/The Revenant/Room/Brooklyn/Inside Out/
2016: Hail Caesar       Hell Or High Water/Hunt For The Wilderpeople/Moana
2017: I, Tonya      Death Of Stalin/Three Billboards/Valerian
2018: Eighth Grade       Bohemian Rhapsody/Ballad Of Buster Scruggs/Green Book
2019: Booksmart     (I don't see anything until it comes out on video, basically)


Choice of top pick is mostly arbitrary, with the tie-breaker being most repeated viewing.

A bit yeah, though I generally have a pretty decent memory for release dates. All my life I've tended to use movie release dates as memory aids - eg I can remember when certain events in my life happened because of what movies were out at the time.

Having said that, I forgot Wolf of Wall Street was 2013 - I'd probably replace Llewyn Davis with that instead in my list.

Ah, good shout. I really enjoyed that movie, though it's seemingly fashionable to bash it. I tend to enjoy almost anything involving Nick Hornby - great screenwriter/adaptor. Wild was another one of his from this decade that I loved. Also it has Domhnall Gleeson in it, kind of the MVP character actor of the decade, he's been in so many great movies.

Was going to play, but there are sooooo many of these I haven't seen; and most I've seen relatively recently, once they came to Netflix or telly, so I couldn't tell you what year they belong to. One for the cinema-goers!*

*This may change now that Vue are doing their £4.99 tickets. This year I've had three cinema visits with an unprecedented fourth planned!

Let Me In
I never watched that one, having heard not great comparisons with Let the Right One In. Did you watch both? (Edit: Having looked around, it seems the movies are basically identical, and so not watching Let Me In would be more down to redundancy than quality.)

This has really highlighted how few films I've seen in the last few years. Can't think of anything special between the double-whammy of Fury Road/Sicario in 2015 and The Favourite last year.

2012 was a great year. Any one of The Raid, Beasts of the Southern Wild or Spring Breakers.
We never really die.

I have watched both - but as Let the Right One In was 2008, I had to go for the remake to get it on this list. I think the original is 10/10 and the English-language remake is 9/10. I still think that the remake is the best horror movie of 2010.

Really, it's been a great decade for horror movies - if you skirt around the exploitative shock and awe of things like the centipede movies.
