Top 13 BEST Movies of the 2010s…In No Particular Order!

Even though this decade is only halfway done (WHAT?!?!) there have been plenty of awesome films that have come out. This one is a little easier to countdown since there are few movies to choose from, but if the next half of the decade is the same, this decade will have topped all other decades with favorites!! The Top 13 BEST Movies of the 2010s begin now!

Top 13 BEST Movies of the 2010s

1. The Avengers (2012)

The Avengers

Funny, action-packed, and a collection of great actors and characters grace the scene with this awesome flick. The description IMDb gives is “Earth’s mightiest heroes must come together and learn to fight as a team if they are to stop the mischievous Loki and his alien army from enslaving humanity.”

2. Guardians of the Galaxy (2014)

Guardians of the Galaxy

At first, I wasn’t too sure of this movie. But it turns out I actually LOVE it. It’s funny, quick-witted, and full of action. The description IMDb gives is “A group of intergalactic criminals are forced to work together to stop a fanatical warrior from taking control of the universe.”

3. X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014)

X-Men Days of Future Past

This is probably the BEST movie in the X-Men franchise. The graphics, storyline, and mix of both old and new characters means this film is top notch! The description IMDb gives is “The X-Men send Wolverine to the past in a desperate effort to change history and prevent an event that results in doom for both humans and mutants.”

4. The Perks of Being a Wallflower (2012)

The Perks of  Being a Wallflower

What an emotional rollercoaster about suicide, being an outcast, and finding your place in this crazy world. The description IMDb gives is “An introvert freshman is taken under the wings of two seniors who welcome him to the real world.”

5. Life of Pi (2012)

Life of Pi

I was hesitant to put this one on the list because of the “twist.” This was quite the disturbing film when you figure out what is going on, but the graphics are beautiful, amazing, modern. The description IMDb gives is “A young man who survives a disaster at sea is hurtled into an epic journey of adventure and discovery. While cast away, he forms an unexpected connection with another survivor: a fearsome Bengal tiger.”

6. Silver Linings Playbook (2012)

Silver Linings Playbook

Seriously one of my favorite movies of all time. Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence NAIL their performances of psychologically challenged individuals who fall in love. The description IMDb gives is “After a stint in a mental institution, former teacher Pat Solitano moves back in with his parents and tries to reconcile with his ex-wife. Things get more challenging when Pat meets Tiffany, a mysterious girl with problems of her own.”

7. Prisoners (2013)

Prisoners

Hugh Jackman is AMAZING in this film. The lengths he goes to in finding his daughter are right up there with what I would do. The twists and turns are compelling and lead to a WHAT?! kind of ending. The description IMDb gives is “When Keller Dover’s daughter and her friend go missing, he takes matters into his own hands as the police pursue multiple leads and the pressure mounts. But just how far will this desperate father go to protect his family?”

8. Edge of Tomorrow (2014)

Edge of Tomorrow

I’ve never been a huge fan of Tom Cruise, but his more recent films are great, including this action-packed, funny film similar to Groundhog’s Day. The description IMDb gives is “A military officer is brought into an alien war against an extraterrestrial enemy who can reset the day and know the future. When this officer is enabled with the same power, he teams up with a Special Forces warrior to try and end the war.”

9. Dawn of the Planet of the Apes (2014)

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

This was surprisingly very entertaining! The acting and graphics were top notch, as was the storyline. The description IMDb gives is “Ten years after a pandemic disease, apes who have survived it are drawn into battle with a group of human survivors.”

10. Kick-Ass 2 (2013)

Kick-Ass 2

I really like this second film better than the first. It’s not usually my kind of film, but it was entertaining and full of action. The description IMDb gives is “The costumed high-school hero Kick-Ass joins with a group of normal citizens who have been inspired to fight crime in costume. Meanwhile, the Red Mist plots an act of revenge that will affect everyone Kick-Ass knows.”

11. Star Trek Into Darkness (2013)

Star Trek Into Darkness

The second of the newer Star Trek movies did not disappoint. Full of action and hot guys, it sure not to disappoint! The description IMDb gives is “After the crew of the Enterprise find an unstoppable force of terror from within their own organization, Captain Kirk leads a manhunt to a war-zone world to capture a one-man weapon of mass destruction.”

12. Les Miserables (2012)

Les Miserables

A modern musical that was beautifully remade. A bit surprised with Russel Crowe and Hugh Jackman singing, but Anne Hathaway blew me away! The description IMDb give is “In 19th-century France, Jean Valjean, who for decades has been hunted by the ruthless policeman Javert after breaking parole, agrees to care for a factory worker’s daughter. The decision changes their lives for ever.”

13. The Conjuring (2013)

The Conjuring

What a great film based on actual events. Horrifying, edge-of-your-seat action that will surely make you jump. The description IMDb gives is “Paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren work to help a family terrorized by a dark presence in their farmhouse.”

And there you go. I have rounded out my Top 13 BEST Movies of the 1980s, 1990s, 2000s, and now the 2010s. Of course I have A LOT more favorite films, but these are the ones that truly stood out and that I remembered easily. All information was obtained from IMDb.

Top 13 BEST Movies of the 1980s…In No Particular Order!

I have many passions, one of them watching movies over and over and over until I can quote it word for word. The 1980s was one of the best decades for many reasons. Synchronization entered music, Madonna became mainstream, and cheesy 80s Flicks became a phenomenon. OH, and I was born in 1986!!! haha There are seriously SO many flicks that I had to choose from, but I managed to narrow it down to my Top 13 Best Movies of 1980…in no particular order. I love movies, therefore I cannot assign them to specific “favorite” slots. Instead, I give you just the Top 13 movies I loved in no specific order. I love them all the same, so even though it’s a countdown, they are all equally loved in my heart (*que cheesy music*).

Top 13 BEST Movies of the 1980s

1. The Goonies (1985)

The Goonies

The description IMDb gives is “In order to save their home from foreclosure, a group of misfits set out to find a pirate’s ancient treasure.” This movie is SO much more than that. The music, Chunk, and “Hey you guuuuuuys” will forever be cherished in my favorite movie catalog. I have never been able to say Baby Ruth properly, and I have attempted numerous times to perfect the truffle shuffle (let’s not even go there haha).

2. Annie (1982)

Annie

The description IMDb gives is “A young orphan girl’s adventures in finding a family that will take her.” Pfft, that description doesn’t do this movie justice. From Daddy Warbucks, to Tomorrow, Tomorrow, this movie is amazing. THIS Annie is amazing. Any other movie (including the shitty remake with the black girl) is just stupid and unappealing!

3. The Shining (1980)

The Shining

Holy, shitballs! This is a classic scary movie based on Stephen King’s novel, The Shining. The description IMDb gives is “A family heads to an isolated hotel for the winter where an evil and spiritual presence influences the father into violence, while his psychic son sees horrific forebodings from the past and of the future.” Can anyone say, REDRUM?!  And those creepy twins girls? Yeeeeeeeeah, no! haha

4. The Princess Bride (1987)

The Princess Bride

Inconceivable! The description IMDb gives is “A classic fairytale, with swordplay, giants, an evil prince, a beautiful princess, and yes, some kissing (as read by a kindly grandfather).” This is a fun, hilarious, romantic story!!!

5. Dirty Dancing (1987)

Dirty Dancing

Nobody puts Baby in the corner! The description IMDb gives is “Spending the summer in a holiday camp with her family, Frances “Baby” Houseman falls in love with the camp’s dance instructor Johnny Castle.” Patrick Swayze is swoon-worthy, the music is hoppin’, and the dancing? I know we’ve all tried it haha!!

6. Christmas Vacation (1989)

Christmas Vacation

I know this is a Christmas movie, but it’s HILARIOUS!! Of course, the entire National Lampoon series is funny, but this tops it! The description IMDb gives is “The Griswold family’s plans for a big family Christmas predictably turn into a big disaster.” Seriously, one of the best movies ever. Enough said.

7. Ferris Bueller’s Day Off (1986)

Ferris Buellers's Day Off

Romance, humor, and a great soundtrack! The description IMDb gives is “A high school wise guy is determined to have a day off from school, despite what the principal thinks of that.”

8. The Breakfast Club (1985)

The Breakfast Club

Cult classic, duh! The description IMDb gives is “Five high school students, all different stereotypes, meet in detention, where they pour their hearts out to each other, and discover how they have a lot more in common than they thought.” Funny, cute, romantic, and GREAT music!!

9. Beetlejuice (1988)

Beetlejuice

The description IMDb gives is “A couple of recently deceased ghosts contract the services of a “bio-exorcist” in order to remove the obnoxious new owners of their house.” Shake, Shake, Shake, Senora!!!

10. The Lost Boys (1987)

The Lost Boys

Vampires & hot boys, oh my!! The description IMDb gives is “After moving to a new town, two brothers are convinced that the area is frequented by vampires.”

11. Ghostbusters (1984)

Ghostbusters

To tell you the truth, I had no idea this movie was this old! The description IMDb gives is “Three unemployed parapsychology professors set up shop as a unique ghost removal service.” Funny and twisted!

12. E.T.-The Extra-Terrestrial (1982)

E.T.

E.T., phone home! The description IMDb gives is “A troubled child summons the courage to help a friendly alien escape Earth and return to his home-world.” Little Drew Barrymore is adorable, and so is E.T.!!

13. Empire of the Sun (1987)

Empire of the Sun

This is nothing like the other movies on here, but it is such a great film I couldn’t leave it out. Even as a young boy, Christian Bale stole my heart. The description IMDb gives is “A young English boy struggle to survives under Japanese occupation during World War II.” Sad, compelling, and a GREAT storyline!

And there you have it. My Top 13 BEST Movies of the 1980s…in no particular order! I know I am missing a lot of good classics, like the Star Wars franchise (2 came out in the early 80s), Batman (with Michael Keaton), and all the romantic comedies, but I’ll find a way to include those in countdowns in the future!
