Best of the 2010s: 100 Best and 10 Worst

Image
Every month I've been focusing on a particular genre of film and count down the 10 Best of the Decade from that genre. It's all been leading to this: The 100 Best of the Decade.

We've gone through quite the series of lists over the past year. And now, the climax. I hope it doesn't disappoint. But first... a look at the Worst of the Decade!

Every month I've been focusing on a particular genre of film and count down the 10 Best of the Decade from that genre. This will, ultimately, lead to a 100 Best list, which will be released in a few days, along with my picks for the Worst of the Decade.

It's time once again for the annual look back at the year in film!

Every year we count down my picks for the worst movies of the year and then the best movies of the year. Before we do let's see if we can make any sense of the year.

First of all, it was staggering how many solid films were largely ignored by audiences in the theater during the first 6-8 months of the year! Long Shot, Booksmart, Blinded by the Light, The Farewell, Fighting with My Family, Late Night - all of these should've been breakout certifiable hits and none but Long Shot broke $25 million domestic.

Blinded by the Light also basically bombed making only $11 million domestic from a $15 million budget. Audiences preferred seeing movies like The Intruder, Aladdin, Ma, Men in Black International, Anna, The Lion King, Hobbs & Shaw, and 47 Meters Down: Uncaged over these wonderful gem…
