RLLMUK's Films of the 2010's - 2015 to 2019 - FINISHED


Recommended Posts

Hi All

 

We've got 15 voters in this - I need to do mine as well and I'm starting on 2010 to 2014 stuff now.

 

Be good to get to a similar number to that poll (24) so if you'd like to take part in this one then please put your picks in and there will be plenty of results very shortly.

Deadline for this will be next Sunday at Midnight and I’ll be annoying and keep bumping it.

 

Just crunched the numbers so far and currently one year has 5 films drawn for third place so more voters please!

2015


1. Sicario

2. Mad Max: Fury Road

3. Inside Out

 

Sicario is one of those films that grabs you from the opening few frames and stays with you long after the quietly downbeat ending. Emily Blunt is brilliant in the central role as an FBI agent whose known world gets far more complex than she realised, or perhaps previously cared to believe. The border crossing scene is one of the best action set-pieces of the decade, and like the film itself, understated, brutal and rife with tension.

 

2016

 

1. Arrival

2. Manchester By the Sea

3. Hunt for the Wilderpeople

 

Arrival is a wonderful film. Echoes of Contact, with a thoughtful narrative that slowly reveals its hand, this film underlined Denis Villeneuve as one of the most fascinating directors working today.

 

2017

 

1. You Were Never Really Here

2. Phantom Thread

3. Bladerunner 2049

 

Lynne Ramsey takes Joaquin Phoenix to some really dark places with You Were Never Really Here. I'm largely indifferent towards The Joker, albeit no question it's another admirable performance by Phoenix. Hopefully more people will seek out this overlooked gem on the back of Joker's success. It's a vicious, taut and lean thriller showing a director and actor at the peak of their powers.

 

2018

 

1. Spider-Man Into the Spider-Verse

2. First Man

3. Blackkklansman

 

Into the Spider-Verse was one of those films where I could feel myself getting agitated that I couldn't currently tell everyone I knew how utterly brilliant it is. I wanted to do that but my eyes were glued to the visual feast that was happening on the screen. The animation is mind-blowing, truly invigorating, and thankfully backed up by an engaging, entertaining story told by a cast of well-written, rounded characters.

 

2019

 

1. Apollo 11

2. Booksmart

3. Jojo Rabbit

 

I think Apollo 11 is my favourite ever documentary, and it certainly afforded me one of my favourite cinematic experiences.

 

Went to see it for a second time after a local IMAX cinema did a short run. On the booking screen found the screening was empty. Double-checked with staff and they confirmed I was the only ticket, so spent a few minutes finding the best perch (just below middle, slightly looking up at the screen) and completely switched off for a startling hour and a half or so.

 

It's a brilliant doc in any format, but in a cavernous IMAX screen with audio that could shake loose a filling it becomes a transcendent experience. Really hope it gets annual limited runs because it really is a spellbinding reminder, and a hugely optimistic one at that, of just what humans can achieve when they put faith in science and engineering.

@lordcookie - Don't know if you're still around, but it'd be good if you could add your choices to this poll.

 

@Ork1927 - As Kerraig never submitted a text list during that brief period he wasn't banned, I'm curious to know if you've taken his selections from that podcast he posted?

 

Hi - I never got around to listening to it.

 

@Benny - 2018 is very close at the top -  A film with Spider-Man in it has a good chance of winning at the moment.

 

19 Entries now - lets have some more before Midnight tomorrow.

Thanks for thinking of me, but I’ve not seen enough films from the last 4-5 years to really contribute (not sure I have even watched a single 2019 film yet).

Just finalising the scores for 2015 to 2019.

 

Gents - couple of amendments if you have a chance.

 

@Bazjam Ex Machina is 2014

 

@Azrael It Follows is 2014

 

Thanks

 

 

 

Wikipedia lied to me. Bump my 2 and 3 up a position and put Ant-man at 3 then.
