    Holy shit, this is going to be hard. I forgot how many great films there have been.

    2013 is particularly strong it seems.

    Apparently our tastes line up pretty perfectly as your #1 picks are pretty close to my #1 picks. I don't think I actually managed to see anything from those 2016 ones though. I think overall my top 5 lists would probably have 1 or 2 blockbusters on each of them, but that's just how my movie tastes lean. Force Awakens(2015), Rouge One(2016), The Avengers(2012), The Martian(2015), Guardians of The Galaxy(2014). Not a blockbuster, but The Hateful Eight technically came out in 2015 so that'd probably be on my list there as well.

    Nice!

    All of those films you listed, besides maybe Rogue One, would be in my top 10 for each year. Some of those, especially Guardians and The Marian, might sneak into my top 5 when it's all said and done.

    Also, good catch on Hateful Eight, that should be in my top 5 for 2015.

    Lastly, what do you guys think about turning this thread eventually into a tournament to find the best film of the decade? We could use this thread over the next few years to build the field. I'm pretty sure by the year 2019 Pablo will be done with the music tournament .

    That's kinda what I thought as well, but then I took a look at a list of 2016 movies and there's actually a lot that looked really good. Unfortunately I've only seen a handful that weren't blockbusters.

    3 that stood out (that I did see) The Witch, The Lobster, and Arrival. I actually totally forgot that The Lobster and The Witch came out this year.

    Yea while I love smaller more award worthy movies, my favorite movies tend to skew more towards blockbusters.

    And if anyone wants to go back and post their top films of other decades, a while back I started a thread for each decade:

    (As well as an All-Time thread.)

    I'll take some time to research but there have been tons of great films this decade.

    The last movie that BLEW me away 100%.. was in 2008 with the Dark Knight. Before that it was The Matrix... T2 before that... I know they are not in the league of movies you speak of... but for me they were the best. Indiana Jones.. Star Wars.... they gave me goosebumps and I could have walked back out and bought a ticket to the very next show AND happily done so.

    oh, yes! have looked at your lists - recognized many of the films, surprisingly (I thought I haven't been watching new films for decades). Remember loving Cold Fish, Another Year and Midnight in Paris; probably something else

    Ask not what bears can do for you, but what you can do for bears. (razz)
    When one is in agreement with bears one is always correct. (pablo)

    I still had some honor. I still have some now.

    To all bearfriends: please read this and/or watch this

    Since there was never a year zero, technically the decade started with 2011, no one goes by this so I'll start with 2010 as well. So many I still need to see so don't judge me too harshly. These aren't in any particular order just yet, working on that and I probably got some of the years wrong. I'll try to narrow them down to five per year but need some time to think...

    2010
    Winter's Bone
    Inception
    Black Swan
    The Social Network
    Restrepo

    It is quite a visceral experience. The Jack Ketchum book it's based on goes even further with the brutality/depravity. The only thing that kind of threw me about it was the music. I wasn't a fan of the song choices, other then that, it's golden!

    Agreed. I'm amazed at how you all remember the movies from each year. Unless you keep track somehow. So many suggestions here, I just have to find the time to give them a look.

    I used to keep records of every movie I watched and what I rated them but somewhere along the way I simply lost interest for whatever reason. Wikipedia, IMDB and other sites have lists of all the films that have been released for each year. That's what I was using to research for this thread.

    Back in the 2000s, I was watching WAY more movies then I do now. There was such urgency that I HAD to see every film ever and after seeing literally thousands of movies, I realize I know less about movies now then when I started my quest. It is a fascinating art form.

    Thank, Tommy! I loved reading your list and some of the other ones. This thread is really going to help myself and other in finding new films to watch, as well as films we may have forgotten about. I've already identified a few films that I completely lost track of.

    The other good thing is we won't have to whittle lists down for another few years. I might go back and expand my list.

    This is the site I use. It's great for keeping track of films you've seen and making lists is really easy.
