Ben Pearson’s Top 10 Movies of the Decade

(This article is part of our Best of the Decade series.) The 2010s were a tumultuous era for movies, but reports of their demise have been greatly exaggerated.

Here are my ten favorite films of the 2010s. 10. Attack the Block You know that feeling when you’re sitting in a theater,...

And in my opinion, the last decade of movies was fantast...
