Great topic. The Way Way Back is my favorite from your list (and that year). Haven’t seen Whiplash yet and I didn’t care for Baby Driver. I’m going to have to think on this.

I was gonna say TDK but I forgot it was 2008. Lol I’m old.

In that case I may second Inception. A very good underrated movie was The Big Short.

The Big Short is in my top ten, maybe top five. Get Out is up there as well.

I need to see Get Out. That may actually be number one when I get around to it.

My college kid had us sit thru Get out cause he is a big Peele and Key fan..

got done and he said that was pretty dumb and i said yup I agree..

Lots of good movies

Excluding some good animated work too
for fun the Avengers/Star wars/Mission Impossible/john wick/bond were pretty solid, but for overall quality of movies


Inception
LaLaLand
Whiplash
Inside Llewyn Davis
hell or high water
true grit
Logan

Warrior was really good that no one mentions

really want to see Parasite but havent found it yet

I love mad max series but dont get all the lists with Mad max Fury Road

written by jim rash & nat faxon . . . and imho far superior to their academy award winning "the descendants"
It's funny, because they're kind of periphery industry guys it feels like, but the stuff they do is really good. Jim Rash was great on Community. Faxon is a stellar writer.

they seemed the strangest choice to adapt the descendants . . . but it obviously worked

Coco was outstanding. While not Pixar, Zootopia was my favorite animated film of the decade. Into the Spider-Verse and Inside Out were also solid.

knives out was a nice movie..
Definitely some recency bias for me, but I think it was just such a perfect movie. Other movies I really enjoyed this decade include Baby Driver, Fury Road, Whiplash, Black Swan, and Dunkirk. I also love all of the Disney Star Wars movies but I'm an admitted fanboy and know this is not a popular opinion.

Baby Driver sounds like it should star Rob Schneider, Adam Sandler, and Kevin Hart as the voice of The Baby.

The Intouchables - a truly great film. French with English subtitles...what?? Normally not my thing, but I was blown away.

Baby Driver was really good. but I wouldnt rate it any better than "Drive" My best driving movie would be "Locke" though with Tom Hardy
