My top ten films for each year of the 2010s. These are always up for revision as I watch more films, revisit ones I’ve seen before, and think about them over time. The films as listed in the “Best of Year” section are held fast at the end of the year (and include a listing of all films I saw that year as well as films released that year).

Oh, and I don’t really believe in top “ten” lists, despite using the common nomenclature for the title of this page. This is going to be the top several films of each year, down to whatever point I think the films stop being worthy of inclusion. Might be eight one year, might be twenty-three another.


  1. The Avengers
  2. Moonrise Kingdom
  3. The History of Future Folk
  4. Safety Not Guaranteed
  5. Cabin in the Woods
  6. Prometheus
  7. Haywire
  8. The Raid
  9. The Hunger Games
  10. John Carter
  11. Chronicle
