Our Favorite Movies of the Decade – Straight from the Slate

Ah, the 2010s – a decade of binge-watching, dabbing, influencers and memes.

As this insane decade comes to a close, many are reflecting on the biggest and best in entertainment from the past 10 years. Some argue that it was prime time for television (with the likes of Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad and the Handmaid’s Tale), but the 2010s were actually game-changing for moviemaking, and they yielded some incredible films and franchises (Marvel, anyone?).

Being in the video production industry, we’re obviously big movie-goers and critics. We also love sharing our unsolicited opinions on such things. So, here it is. Our favorite movies of the decade!

*Please note that these are simply our personal favorite movies of the 2010s and may not be widely considered technically perfect films. We’re not debating what should be or should not be labelled the “best” films of the decade. We don’t care if you hated La La Land or “didn’t get” Interstellar, KAREN.*
