RLLMUK's Films of the 2010's - 2010 to 2014 VOTING CLOSES SUNDAY NIGHT (2nd FEB)

Recommended Posts

Time for the next poll

 

2010 to 2014

 

Previous results here and I'm publishing 2nd part of 90s poll results this week.

 

As with the first poll - pick your top 3 films for 2010 to 2014 Favourite gets 3 points, 2nd gets 2, 3rd gets 1. Film with most points is the best of the year (and in the event of any ties then the film with most first place picks wins). No - you can't have 4 or 5 or 9 ;-)

 

If you didn't vote in previous polls then feel free to vote in this one.

 

REMEMBER: IMDB determines release date (whatever year is in brackets against the film title).

 

Deadline is 11.59pm on Sunday 2nd February 2020.

2010

1. 13 Assassins - A riotously explosive samurai movie by Takashi Miike that pulses with visceral energy and leaves you breathless right up to the end. Superb.

2. Arrietty - Studio Ghibli's take on the Borrowers story is rich in textural detail and immersive soundscapes. Another charming addition to the Ghibli canon

3. Toy Story 3 - An absolutely wonderful capstone to a wonderful trilogy, with moments that are genuinely shocking and affecting. I bawled my eyes out.

 

2011

1. Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy - Alec Guinness in the TV adaptation was great, but Gary Oldman's Smiley somehow feels more grizzled, more world weary. An actors who's who of incredible performances rounds it all out.

2. Drive - the only Nicholas Winding Refn movie I think I actually like, and this may be in large part because there is actually some humanity in it. A simmering, delectable thriller.

3. The Artist - wearing its influences very much on its sleeve, this is nevertheless an immensely crowd pleasing love letter to cinema.

 

2012

1. Dredd - the role Karl Urban was born to play, as the titular enforcer cuts a swathe through a single building in one of the tightest and most thrilling action films in years.

2. Searching for Sugar Man - both an informative and highly entertaining documentary about the artist Rodriguez.

3. Avengers - the only superhero film I will have on my list for the decade. And for good reason: this one brought together an entire disparate collection of films and characters and made it look like they had a plan all along. This was back when the idea of a superhero team up event move was something people thought was actually insane, and it was the first time the big screen had a movie that actually resembled the madness of super hero teams (as depicted in comic books for decades) but had never full captured on the big screen. It felt fresh, it felt cool, and it felt like something people hadn't seen before. Every other film afterwards would then have to labour under the weight of having to be part of a Cinematic Universe. But for a brief moment, it felt like this endlessly entertaining movie was actually a bit rebellious, and that anything was possible. 

 

2013

1. The Tale of Princess Kaguya - possibly the most beautiful Ghibli film ever made. This painstakingly realised watercolour painting come to life is as emotionally affecting as it is joyful to watch.

2. 12 Years a Slave - I sat in the front row for this in a cinema that was largely silent for the entire running time. I emerged from it like I'd been punched in the gut. Absolutely harrowing.

3. Jodorowsky's Dune - A wonderfully fascinating story of what might have been. My favourite aspect in particular is the detailed look at the incredible Giger concepts.

 

2014

1. Whiplash - one of the greatest thrillers ever made. Yes, it's very much about music too. And abusive relationships. And suffering for art. It's so many things, and it's a wild ride.

2. Ex Machina - a film that has grown on me on subsequent viewings, but mostly for Oscar Isaac's quite terrifying performance. A small film with big ideas that gets in your head.

3. The Guest - a lovely little 80s action inspired gem that apes all the aspects of the genre in knowing ways while still being immense fun to watch it its own right.

10 participants so far.

 

Currently - 2010 and 2012 have a couple of front runners that I'd expect to finish top three, but its all very close. 2011 currently has one film out in front and I couldn't hazard a guess what will finish top 3 in 2013/2014 at the moment as it could be anything.

2010

Obvious standouts this year:

1. Scott Pilgrim Vs The World

2. The Social Network

3. Black Swan

 

2011

Oof this year was rough. Scraping the barrel here:

1. Melancholia

2. Bridesmaids

3. Killer Joe

 

2012

Another year worse than I remember:

1. Dredd

2. V/H/S

3. Life of Pi

 

Special mention: Hobbit HFR (specifically the HFR cinema version)

 

2013 

Now I have the opposite problem. Too many to call:

1. Before Midnight

2. Inside Llewellyn Davies

3. Her

 

Runners-up: Wolf of Wall Street.

 

2014

What a year. So many amazing movies:

1. Grand Budapest Hotel

2. It Follows

3. Calvary
 

Runners-up: Ex Machina, Whiplash, Nightcrawler, Gone Girl. I could honestly switch out Calvary for any of those, but I doubt it’d get a vote otherwise.

 

I guarantee there are obvious favourites I will have forgotten.

2014 was definitely hardest for me. One definite 5/5 and just a seemingly endless stream of great 4/5s

2010

1. Inception 

2. The Social Network

3. Monsters

 

2010 was a bit rubbish really 

 

2011

1. Tinker, tailor, soldier, spy

2. Shame

3. Attack the block

 

Wow, not a lot here either really 

 

 

2012

1. Avengers assemble - still probably the best of the marvel films, perfect film making

2. Dredd - in any other year this would be number 1, a crime there weren't more made. 

3. Looper 

 

2013

1. Wolf of Wall Street

2. The World's End

3. Under the Skin 

 

Another fairly weak year. 

 

2014

1. Guardians of the Galaxy 

2. Grand Budapest hotel 

3. Whiplash

 

Then boom!  2014 has masses of brilliant films - too hard to pick 3, no room for Nightcrawler, Lego, Birdman, gone girl, ex machina, john wick, boyhood, edge of tomorrow, frank, kingsman etc etc, what a great year for films.

I'd forgotten/missed Shame. I'll have to change my 2011 vote.

 

I'd say 2010 and 2014 are both strong years here. A number of films miss out that would've easily made top 3 in other years.

I increasingly think these lists are limited by the films people have actually seen, rather than picked out of all the great films each year. So the winners are going to be heavily weighted to the most "popular" rather than the best. At least only being able to pick 3 does dampen that a little.

But of course that's how its voted on. How are people meant to vote on something they've not seen.

I thought that 2012 was a strong year, but as fun as Bane was, I wouldn't use TDKR as an example of one of its best films!
