The 25 Best Films of the Decade Video

"Are you ready?" It's the end of another decade! With the 2010s winding down, and the 2020s about to kick off, everyone is looking back at the last 10 years and all the films that are truly worth of being singled out and highlighted as the best of the best. Cinephile and writer Milton Lawson has edited a video called The 25 Best Films of the Decade, counting down his 25 favorites. It's similar to David Ehrlich's annual Best of the Year video countdown, with a fine selection of music playing over top of the films as it goes through each of them one-by-one. Lawson's intro: "I edited a supercut video celebrating my favorite films of the decade. Turn up the volume & enjoy." His music selection is just as lovely as the films (and footage) he's picked, and it's a great reminder there's always wonderful films & music to discover. Dive right in and have a good time.

This "25 Best Films of the Decade" supercut video made and edited by writer / cinephile Milton Lawson - you can follow him @citizenmilton for more updates and to discuss his favorites featured in here.

What's the point? Who cares what someone else's opinionis regarding the 'best' movies of whenever? Why do we have to make 'best' lists? It's silly and besides, as we all know...opinions are like rectums in that everyone has one. So...who cares and what's the point? Like what you like and I'll like what I like and who's to say who is right or wrong as it's subjective anyway? I don't care what this guy thinks and I don't care what Fincher thinks...or John Waters...or anyone, for that matter. Bah humbug!...lol...

If it’s from somebody that I tend to agree with, I’d usually watch/read a to 25 list to potentially find films I may have overlooked. At the same time, I’m definitely a proponent of renaming all “best of” lists to “favorites of” in order to be more accurate.

Sounds good as 'favorites of' states it's merely a subjective opinion and lessons the ego aggrandizing...somewhat...myself, I've never heard of Milton Lawson so another big reason I could care less what he thinks are better than. Even if the great Pauline Kael, whom I read back in the day when critics mattered, were to have compiled a 'best' list I wouldn't have cared or paid attention. Of course, she was gifted and intelligent and might name films she thought worthy of viewing. I'd look at that and even then found myself agreeing with some of her thoughts and disagreeing on many more. Like I don't think she liked Kubrick and loved DePalma. I've always thought that stupid and insane...and still do. In other words, I'm suggesting to think for one's self and pay no mind to what other think with regards to what's 'best'. It's silly!

I care what his opinion is because he has enough talent to share it in a skillful and entertaining way. You, on the other hand, have nothing at all to say, and somehow still can't accomplish that!

...lol...okay, bubba...okay...lol...feel better?...lol... Apparently I said enough to get your panties all twisted up...lol... I didn't even address you personally and yet you attack me personally as if I did. Which indicates insecurities and pathetic ego that you need to aggrandize by 'attempting' to belittle or denigrate me. Behavior from small minded, self obsessed people who take things having nothing to do with them personally. You poor sod. I hope you recover from my posting my intelligent and on the money observation about these stupid 'best of' lists...lol... p.s. I blocked you as I've no further interest in your immature reactions and insecure need to denigrate those superior to yourself...which means I won't be alerted to anything you address to me so don't waste your time as I'll never see it...thank the computer gods for the blocking option. Cheers...lol...

Great little video...great music selections...you get to remember what you loved and see what you missed. That's the "point"!

No...the point is ego aggrandizement on the part of people who compile these lists for others to read. I do not engage with people who ego aggrandize and find it unsettling that so many people do because they are too unconscious to ascertain the real point to these meaningless behaviors. To aggrandize one's ego. To say, look at me...I'm important and I know what is better and blah blah blah...come on, kitano!
