WELCOME TO THE 5TH ANNUAL ULTIMATE DECADES BLOGATHON HOSTED BY MYSELF AND DREW’S MOVIE REVIEWS!
This year, we’re taking up the hot topic of 2020 and that is of course, looking back at the decade that we just left behind of movies from 2010-2019.
The last decade saw a lot of changes whether its an higher emphasis on diverse cinema and technology advancements giving us more realistic movie experiences to of course, the continuation of Disney taking over the Star Wars franchise as well as Marvel wrapping up its Phase 1 and followed through with a few more phases of building the Marvel Cinematic Universe and of course, DC joining in to that party, albeit fashionably late.
It became a decade of some highly creative movies, a rise in independent cinema, a more accessible appreciation of foreign cinema, the more widely accepted queer cinema as well as a lot of remakes, reboots and sequels of movies that were long-awaited or not so necessary.
Aside from that, cinema saw a shift in its viewing outlet. While theatres still had some outstanding cinema that made a lot of movies accessible, streaming services took a leap forward in creating original content with Netflix taking the lead and with other services following behind with a mix quality of movies.
Overall, a lot of breakthroughs, a lot of highs and with that, a lot of lows as well. Making it a decade well worth looking at, wouldn’t you say? Suffice to say, there are a ton of choices available for everyone to choose from. What 2010s film is one that you can watch over and over again? Which made an impression on you? Which ones remain memorable?
