What was the best movie of the 2010's, The Social Network or The Wolf of Wall Street?

Recommended Posts

Force Majeure

Amour

Inside Llewyn Davis

You Were Never Really Here

The VVitch

I'd go with those as a start of a top 10 or top 20

Fuck me, I forgot Ex Machina, Her and Under The Skin.

Shame was fantastic. Male nudity always gets an extra star from me.

 

I havent seen Youth. I gotta get on that.

I'm not sure Youth is for everyone but I liked it. It's hammerhead shark wide screen.

I'll get to watching these too. I actually have seen relatively few movies this decade so I'm not the best at picking.

Those 4 (Force Majeure, Amour, Frances Ha, Inside Llewyn Davis) are about as different as 4 movies can be. If you watch one and don't like it, don't think the others are similar.

I'm an unabashed film snob.

 

I honest to god can't think of a movie in the last ten years that thoroughly entertained me, kept me immersed, surprised me, etc.

 

Closest was "Gone Girl" I think.  "Prisonsers" was dark man....really dark....like darker than Grace Jones' morning shit....but if you can handle how dark it was it was a hell of a gripping thriller.....not something I wanna revisit though.

 

My favorite from the last ten years was "Django," but Tarantino deserves his own category apart from any other movies cause he just does his own thing.  It's like comparing Beethoven to whatever shitty K-Pop band is hot this week and a suicide next week.

 

Like I said...Wolf of Wall Street is not "high cinema" but it was fun as hell and is actually more fun the more you watch it.  The "Mrs. Robinson" montage is gold.

 

 

"Interstellar" and "Inception" are so overblown with undeserved praise....clearly praised by people that never read Grant Morrison, Alan Moore, or Neil Gaiman.  YAWN.

 

Anyone watch Manchester by the Sea?  What a miserable pile of shit.

 

PS....I see a lot of movies on your lists that seem to be there just cause "critics" said they were amazing, but they were actually pretty shit. 
12 Years a Slave?   God, nothing but slavery porn.  "The Lobster"  Fucking repulsive movie.  "Dallas Buyers Club.".....eye roll to that.

 

La La Land has no right to be on any "best" anything list ever.  Shit-ass movie.

 

Remember Birdman?  It tried to be unique, but the execution rather sucked.  Another case where the trailer was better than the movie. 

 

(Just like the Joker....oh dear god I said it....I'm gonna get crucified.)

 

Did anyone else like Zero Dark Thirty?   I kinda liked it.  It had actual suspense.

 

To each his own I guess, and I commend you guys for watching stuff that at least TRIES, and isn't a goddamn Disney Marvel Product......

 

But we've come a looong way from stuff like Being John Malkovich, The Matrix, Fight Club, Amelie , American Beauty AND American Pie (the first one), Eternal Sunshine, Yi Yi, The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford.......

 

Hands down, 2010-2019 was the single shittiest decade for movies I've ever seen in my lifetime.  And Hollywood pandering to dumb people in China is a big part of why, so they can make the movies easier to understand with bigger explosions, and the other reason is the fucking horseshit identity politics.  Not to mention the complete lack of the semblance of a shred of an original idea these days.

 

OK....old man rant over.
