List: Top 10 Year End Lists – 2010-2019

List: Top 10 Year End Lists – 2010-2019

On Episode 363, after thorough and lengthy deliberation, we finally discussed our Top 10 movies of the decade (2010-2019). It was a lot of fun celebrating the very best that film had to offer in the 2010s, and we hope you enjoyed it as we did. As part of the exercise, Brendan and JD decided to offer up their newly revised Top 10 lists for each year in the decade. If you listened to our Best of the Decade (so far) show on Episode 133, or any of our past awards shows, you may notice some discrepancies between these lists and what we published previously. There are many reasons for this, but mostly it comes down to cinephile maturity and careful reflection on the films that move us the most emotionally and artfully.

With that said, here are our newly updated Top 10 lists for each year in the 2010s!
