Yes, 2019 is almost over, and we are reminiscing on the best things from the last decade. Starting off with the cinematic masterpieces that took the world by storm and will undoubtedly stand the test of time. Our picks are based on a strong storyline and visual experience that was cherished by audiences and critics alike. Unfortunately, we are only counting down the top 5 from a plethora of good movies out there, so don’t frown if your favorite did not make the list. Sit back and enjoy the read:
- Inception (2010)
We can’t leave this Nolan masterpiece out. People are still wondering if the totem stopped and did Cobb indeed make it out of the dream. That was the sheer impact of this movie. The visually mind-boggling presentation was accented with the genius of Leonardo Dicaprio and a slew of other capable cast members that make this movie arguably the greatest of all time.
- The Social Network (2010)
David Fincher’s extraordinary origin story of Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg is sure to go down in history as one of the best movies of the new millennial. Jesse Eisenberg expresses the world icon with precision through his fantastic dialogue delivery. The screenplay is just perfect, portraying the chilling tale of how Jesse manages to connect the world yet becomes the loneliest man on the planet.
- Whiplash (2014)
“Not quite my tempo” shrieked the guts out of audiences, especially drummers. Damien Chazelle’s vision fuelled by astonishing performances by JK Simmons and Miles Teller made this movie a nerve-wracking experience for musicians and non-musicians alike. The final performance is one to watch out for.
- Interstellar (2014)
Yes, you weren’t the only one walking out of the theatres scratching your head. Interstellar demands a second watch unless you have the intellectual rate of Neil de Grasse Tyson. Although coined as a “science fiction,” the scientific correctness of the movie was acclaimed by Kip Thorne himself. Never before has a film been so scientifically close in resembling the unknown wonders of the universe.
- Once upon a time in Hollywood (2019)
Tarantino’s rather unconventional take and a new directorial technique worked wonders for him. The stellar cast delivers a crazy experience bringing the audiences closer to the protagonist and his fight as a fading actor. The stuntman played by Brad Pitt acts as the perfect catalyst to what brings the entire movie to the forefront.
We hope you agree with our picks. Although these movies are a class apart the past decade has been a satisfying experience for all movie fans across the world. Here are a few Honorable Mentions that are equally worthy.
- Boyhood (2014)
- Mad Max Fury Road (2015)
- Moonlight (2016)
- Get Out (2017)
