The early to mid-2010s have brought an immense surge of blockbuster movies with commercial success. It is the era where movie creators began taking filmmaking to greater heights, experimenting with different genres and storylines that appealed to the general audience and the critics.


This decade is one of the people’s favorite periods when it comes to high-quality movies. It reflects the world we lived in, captured within frames and lines that define an era of entertainment and escapism rolled into one.

Inception (2010)

A Leonardo DiCaprio-starred film will always be an auto-watch for some people, and Reddit fan Rabid_Luiz says it is the best film of the 2010s based on the number of times he has watched it. We can’t blame him, though – the film has so much re-watch value. With its great casting, fans were also blown away by the movie’s plot, action sequence, and the cliffhanger!

The Social Network (2010)

Reddit user Gumby9 says that this movie perfectly captured the trend of this decade because of the rise of social media popularity. The Social Network tells the humble beginnings of Facebook creator Mark Zuckerberg. While the social media app was already gaining attention during that year, it wasn’t as successful as it is today.


Django Unchained (2012)

For Reddit fan Emadyville, Django Unchained is still their favorite movie. Quentin Tarantino’s film features the most impressive production design and costumes. Leonardo DiCaprio starred again in this movie; he was such a favorite actor of this decade.

Although the movie is not historically accurate, it still captured southern barbarity. Stephen Marchie from Esquire said that it is “one of the most overt attempts made to deal with the physical reality of slavery.”


Whiplash (2014)

Now, if you are looking for a terrifying yet brilliant kind of story, this movie just delivers it right on your screen. Shaunika from Reddit believes that “Whiplash is a masterwork of tension with some of the best performances of the decade,” and we couldn’t agree more. Miles Teller and J.K. Simmons’s performances were outstanding and beyond unbelievable.

The Revenant (2015)

We are not yet done with Leonardo DiCaprio and his excellent roster of top-grossing films. The Revenant is one of his biggest accomplishments after it gained him his first Academy Award. Reddit user Notuch praises the cinematography and vision of the film’s director. For the fan, it is “probably one of the most breathtaking experiences in the cinemas.”

Mad Max: Fury Road (2015)

Mad Max

The fourth film of the Mad Max series finally made its appearance after several years of waiting. Without doubt, it became one of the most remarkable movies of the decade.


A fan from Reddit thinks that they won’t ever watch a film like this ever again. “It combined a century of filmmaking techniques into a film that was the best and likely last of a veteran director.” Now that there’s an upcoming spin-off to the series entitled Furiosa, fans can only wait and hope it will follow the success of its predecessor!
