The Top 10 Films of the Decade (2003-2013)

Top 10 Films of the Decade

Quickflix celebrates her tenth birthday this month, and I’m honouring it the only way I know how: by selecting my favourite films from its first ten years of existence. Born in late 2003, she’s seen a number of massive upheavals in the world of cinema. Some of the biggest ever box office hits (The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King, Avatar, The Avengers) hit screens this past decade, just as the Academy Awards began to reward smaller and smaller fare (Slumdog Millionaire, The Hurt Locker, The Artist). The gimmick of 3-D rose and fell and then rose again (“thanks” Gravity) while streaming and binge watching became household terms. Most importantly, however, is the actual quality of the works released this decennium. We’re sometimes reluctant to call recent features “classics” (for fear of jumping the gun and accidentally declaring a forgettable flick like, say, the aforementioned Artist, “one of the greats”). But, it’s often worth taking stock of modern moviemaking and acknowledging that amongst all the expensive Transformers sequels are legitimate contenders for the ‘Best Picture of All-Time throne. Here are fifty such examples. (Yes, it’s technically only meant to be a Top 10. Look, there were too many goodies to choose from…)
