Paste Magazine's the 100 Best Movies of the 2010s
Our staff's favorite 100 movies released between 2010 and now. There's a lot of the familiar and a lot of the divisive and a small bit of the esoteric, but in its weird breadth this list is the best we could do to cover so much, from our writers' taste to our best guess for which films will have a lasting effect on whatever post-apocalyptic hellscape is to come as direct result of this moment's war between Scorsese and the MCU.
In that spirit, we had to leave a bunch of films out, make some serious compromises to get other titles in. John Wick is here, representative of all three chapters; Blade Runner 2049 can stand in well enough for Arrival's scope; The Beach Bum is the humanist opus in conversation with what Spring Breakers promised; Coco is the best of what kind of magic Pixar's conjured all decade; Annihilation wraps Ex Machina in its warm embrace, and absorbs it. Or, at least that's how we reasoned our way to the following 100.
