Here Are Small Screen’s 20 Favourite Movies From The Past Decade

The past decade has given us some very memorable movies. Here are 20 films that we decided were our favourites from the past 10 years.

Cinema is an important part of people’s lives. I consider cinema to be one of my main passions in life. I live and breath it. I bloody love it! Over the last decade, we’ve seen cinema go from strength to strength. Yes, there have been so real turkeys over the years but there have also been some true masterpieces. Coming up with a list of my 20 favourite movies from the past decade is no easy task. I had to think about it long and hard, remind myself which films actually came out in the last ten years (lots of searching on IMDB), but I finally managed to come up with a list I am proud of and I believe properly reflects cinema in over the past decade.

You may not agree with some of the movies I have put on this list, and that’s fine. One of the things I love most about cinema is that it promotes discussion and debate and often movies make us talk about important themes that should be discussed. There are certain cases in which it goes a tad too far (Star Wars: The Last Jedi and the whole Rey is a Mary Sue debate – which isn’t a debate, she isn’t a Mary Sue…).

However, more often than not, movies are there to make us feel real emotions, to make us think, to make us cringe, wince, flinch, laugh, cry, love, gasp… Literally all the emotions… In my eyes, there’s nothing quite like cinema, but that’s a personal opinion and may very well feel the same things from music, art, food, sport… whatever thing you’re into. I just happen to be into movies.

But that’s enough waffle about how much I love cinema. It’s time to go over Small Screen’s 20 favourite movies from the past decade.
