WEB EXCLUSIVE

The 2010s were the catalyst for many movie franchises, these films sparking much love and hype from fans and the general public. All throughout the previous decade, expanded universes like the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), sagas like Star Wars and other joy-bringing and dream-inspiring movies from companies like Disney, Warner Bros and Sony took the center stage of the cinematic auditorium. Reaching into the many realms of the digital world and being carried through the air via ecstatic conversations, these films brought out laughs, tears, screams and awe from the audiences watching them, first on the silver screens and later in their homes or, most recently, their phones. So, to commemorate these films, let us travel back in time and go over ten movies, one (ish) from each year, that not only shaped the decade, but also shaped the childhoods and young adolescents of children across the world.

 

2010 – Toy Story 3 

 

  • Release Date: June 18th, 2010 (USA)
  • Genre: Fantasy/Comedy-drama 
  • Runtime: 1h 48m
  • Ratings: 8.3/10 (IMDb) and 98% (Rotten Tomatoes)
  • Box Office: 1.067 billion USD (2018)

 

After spending many years within the toy box, Woody (Tom Hanks), Buzz Lightyear (Tim Allen), Jesse (Joan Cusack) and the rest of the toys find themselves facing the looming threat of being placed up in the attic and possibly be forgotten forever as their, now grown up, kid Andy heads for college. Accidently ending up on the curb in a trash bag, the gang is able to escape but find themselves on their way to Sunnyside Daycare for donation. Woody denies this future of ‘eternal playtime’ and stays loyal to his kid, leaving the gang, but Buzz and Jesse soon discover that the toddlers there don’t play nice while Woody ends up in the hands of a young girl named Bonnie and is quickly integrated into the gang of her toys. With what seemed like a sanctuary of safety right in their hands, the toys uncover the darker side of the daycare and, with Woody’s help from the outside, plan a great escape back to their kid. 

 

At the time, this was the grand finale for the Toy Story trilogy, and it ended wonderfully. The movie continues to hold tight to that Pixar magic that actually brought the toys to life while also embracing change, with Andy now old and off to go live his own life, we see the bittersweet joy and struggle the toys go through with this fact, knowing it was coming but never expecting to be so soon. Of course, Toy Story 4 (2019) came afterwards and capped off the series, but if Toy Story 3 were to be the final installment, which it was for most of the decade, it would have been a near perfect conclusion to the trilogy. Regardless, Toy Story 3 is a heartwarming, suspenseful, tearjerker of a movie, to infinity and beyond.

 

2011 – Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows Part 1 and Part 2   

 

  • Release Date: Part 1 – November 19th, 2010 (USA)

Release Date: Part 2 – July 15th, 2011 (USA)

  • Genre: Part 1 – Narrative/Fantasy-drama

Genre: Part 2 – Narrative/Fantasy-drama

  • Runtime: Part 1 – 2h 26m 

Runtime: Part 2 – 2h 10m

  • Ratings: Part 1 – 7.7/10 (IMDb) and 77% (Rotten Tomatoes)

Off on their own and without the support of their school or the wizarding world, Harry Potter (Daniel Radcliff), Ron Weasley (Rupert Grint) and Hermione Granger (Emma Watson) go on one last adventure to locate, gather and destroy Voldemort’s Horcruxes, seven objects in which contain a piece of Voldemort/Tom Riddle’s soul in order to defeat the Dark Lord once and for all. Death Eaters have already seized control over the school of Hogwarts and The Ministry of Magic, and are close on Harry’s tail as the horcruxes themselves begin to tear the gang apart. This culminates in the penultimate finale as the students and teachers of Hogwarts, lead by Harry, stand up against Voldemort (Ralph Fiennes) and his army of dark wizards, good and evil clashing all throughout the castle in an epic showdown that will determine the fate of the wizarding world.

 

It’s important to place these two movies together in one spot for many reasons, they came out close to one another (seven months apart), they both come from the same book (Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows) and these two films are pretty much one cut in half. These movies are a quite astounding ending for the Harry Potter saga, a series that many grew up with reading and continued to grow up watching. Part 1 is the weaker of the two, not to say it isn’t a fun and fantastical film but its lower rating helps to not upstage the finale, acting as the final steps to the ultimate top. Part 2 is an action and drama filled adventure from beginning to end as we watch every year here in Hogwarts all come together for a mystical final battle. Of course, the books are better because that’s just how books are, but if you’re looking to just watch the films, these two are a wonderful ending to the magical story of the boy who lived.

 

2012 – Marvel’s The Avengers

 

  • Release Date: May 4th, 2012 (USA)
  • Genre: Fantasy/Sci-fi
  • Runtime: 2h 23m
  • Ratings: 8/10 (IMDb) and 91% (Rotten Tomatoes)
  • Box Office: 1.519 billion USD

 

All over one night, the Norse trickster god and Thor’s evil brother, Loki (Tom Hiddleston), attacks a secret S.H.I.E.L.D. research facility and obtains a cosmic energy cube referred to as The Tesseract. After the event, Director Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) commences a superhero recruitment team under the name of ‘The Avengers’ in order to fight the incoming threat from space. Agent Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) goes to enlist Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.), also known as the famous ‘Iron Man’ and S.H.I.E.L.D. spy ‘Black Widow’ a.k.a. Natasha Romanoff (Scarlett Johansson) heads to Asia to locate a lost scientist named Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo), infamous for his angier second half: ‘The Hulk’ while Fury goes out to meet with Steve Rogers (Chris Evans), the once presumed dead ‘Captain America’ to help create the team and stop the god of mischief. The newly created Avengers find and take down Loki only to be met by the god of thunder himself, Thor (Chris Hemsworth), leading to a fight between Stark, Rogers and the Odinson. After many attacks, deaths and savings, The Avengers, at this point now joined by Clint Barton (Jeremy Renner) a.k.a. ‘Hawkeye’, go to fight Loki and a looming alien army in the streets of New York City to protect Earth, or avenge it if everything goes horribly wrong. 

 

This movie was essentially the catalyst for the entire craze that was and still is the ‘Marvel Cinematic Universe’. It was the first of its kind, a film that many were both highly excited and equally worried for. Before this, there were no massive movies that strung together a series of famous characters, so when news about this film was finally brought out, it sparked a lot of exhilaration and concern as many were werey for such a daunting task. In the end, Marvel Studios and Disney were able to not just accomplish this but succeed incredibly. ‘The Avengers’ is the definition of a comic-book movie, strange but colorful characters and battles that almost feel like the page-by-page animation. It’s a film that, theoretically shouldn’t have worked and yet, it did. In the end, it was merely just the beginning for something astonishing and joyous to watch unfold, assembling anyone and everyone for a decade of flashy fight scenes, rich worlds, suspenseful stories and lovable characters.

 

2013 – Frozen

 

  • Release Date: November 27th, 2013 (USA)
  • Genre: Fantasy/Comedy-music
  • Runtime: 1h 49m
  • Ratings: 7.5/10 (IMDb) and 90% (Rotten Tomatoes)
  • Box Office: 1.276 billion USD

 

Princesses of Arendelle, Anna (Kristen Bell) and, soon to be queen, Elsa (Idina Menzel) celebrate the opening of the castle doors after about a decade following their parent’s death at sea. But after an incident with the queen regarding the recent meeting and marriage of her sister and a prince named Hans (Santino Fontana), Elsa reveals her cryokinetic abilities and casts the kingdom into an eternal winter, escaping to the mountains. Anna puts Hans in charge of Arendelle and, along the way, teams up with an ice master and mountaineer named Kristoff (Jonathan Groff), his reindeer sidekick Sven and a living snowman created by Elsa named Olaf (Josh Gad), on a journey to climb the northern mountains to confront her sister and save their kingdom from the icy curse. 

 

‘Frozen’ was a success in many forms, taking both the box office and internet by storm with it’s catchy songs, lovable characters and age-old Disney story, turned on its head for the modern times and new generation of audiences. It takes the magic of the old era of Disney Princess Movies and spins it around, telling the tale of a ‘true love’ in a new cool and heartwarming, sisterly light, ‘Frozen’ is by definition an ambitious movie with a taste for breaking the mold, the mold its creators set for itself long ago. Packed with laughs and action, the movie is a perfect family film for when the night gets just a little too cold, even if that’s never bothered you anyways. 

 

2014 – The Lego Movie

 

  • Release Date: February 7th, 2014 (USA)
  • Genre: Fantasy/Action
  • Runtime: 1h 41m
  • Ratings: 7.8/10 (IMDb) and 96% (Rotten Tomatoes)
  • Box Office: 486.1 million USD

 

Coming into contact with a mysterious red prism, which instantly gets glued to his back, Emmett (Chris Pratt), an ordinary, rule-following and society-fitting LEGO construction worker, gets thrown into an unraveling plot, mistakenly being identified as ‘the Special’, a being with the power to save all the worlds, and teams up with a rag-tag fellowship of odd but creative people including Wyldstyle (Elizabeth Banks), Batman (Will Arnett), Unikitty (Alison Brie), Metalbeard (Nick Offerman) and the spaceman Benny (Charlie Day), all with the magical ability to ‘Masterbuild’, or tear apart the world around them and reconstruct reality into their own image. The gang is chased down by the evil tyrant President Business (Will Farrell), his right hand man Good Cop/Bad Cop (Liam Neeson)  and his Micromanagers who are looking to steal ‘the piece of resistance (the red prism stuck to Emmett’s back) so that the Master Builders are powerless to stop them from freezing all existence with the Kragle, forever keeping the world in a perfect, unmoving state. 

 

This film is all things beautiful and hilarious, mixing quite realistic and gorgeous animation with a touching, creative and colorful storyline, filled with wacky childhood creations for characters, all to tell a story of a father and son sharing in their passion of playing with LEGOs. Every character is fun to watch and interact with one another, every scene, from start to finish, is just pure entertainment, surprisingly being able to draw deep emotions from any viewer, especially those who grew up playing with LEGOs from dusk to dawn. The film speaks to those creators, those ‘Master Builders’ out there, giving not just them but everyone an exciting, poppy and lovably hysterical trip. From one brick to another brick, the movie is brimming with passion and heart. 

 

2015 – Star Wars: The Force Awakens 

 

  • Release Date: December 18th, 2015 (USA)
  • Genre: Fantasy/Sci-fi 
  • Runtime: 2h 15m
  • Ratings: 7.9/10 (IMDb) and 93% (Rotten Tomatoes)
  • Box Office: 2.066 billion USD

 

Thirty years after the Galactic Civil War and the fall of The Empire, a new evil named ‘The First Order’ rises with the upcoming dark lord, Kylo Ren, at the helm along with  Supreme Leader Snoke and a galaxy-spanning army of new star destroyers and stormtroopers. Meanwhile, on the ruin sand planet of Jakku, a Resistance pilot named Poe Dameron gets his hands on the remaining piece for a map to locate the lost Jedi Master Luke Skywalker and instructs his droid, BB-8, to take the star chart to Resistance General Leia Organa. Kylo intercepts and captures Poe, torturing him for the location of the droid. A defective stormtrooper, FN-2187, breaks protocol and frees Poe, the two escaping back to Jakku, crash landing and being seperated. During all of this, an unknown force user and  lonely scavenger named Rey meets with BB-8 and eventually comes in contact with the ex-stormtrooper, renamed ‘Finn’. The three team up, escaping the sand world on the abandoned Millennium Falcon. From here, the group gets roped in with the Resistance and their hunt for Skywalker, uncovering a planet-destroying machine built by The First Order along the way, teaming up with old faces from the Rebel Alliance and kickstarting the beginning of a new trilogy.

 

‘The Force Awakens’ is one of the most split movies on this list because of the bipolar nature of the Star Wars fanbase, though, most would regard the first film of the ‘Sequel Trilogy’ a wonderful, welcoming and pleasing introduction to the future of the saga, bringing everyone, veterans of the story and newcomers to it, together for an enjoyable, heart-racing and truly magical experience. There was much worry for what many saw as the ‘Disney adaptation’ of the Star Wars franchise, but it’s safe to say they delivered superbly, hitting a nice sweet spot for a resurgence of Star Wars in the modern age. Now, with the future installments, it’s hard to disagree that the present state of Star Wars isn’t exactly the best, many of the recent creations in this galaxy far, far away being handled with mixed receptions, many either praising or completely trashing the films. Regardless, ‘The Force Awakens’, and the two following films: ‘The Last Jedi’ (2017) and ‘The Rise of Skywalker’ (2019), have their good and bad qualities, but overall are still enjoyable and pleasing movies that are fun to sit, watch, and maybe make fun of if you’re that kind of person. Everyone’s opinions are their own, so take yours as it is, don’t attack anyone else’s, and may the force be with you. 

 

2016 – Captain America: Civil War

 

  • Release Date: May 6th, 2016 (USA)
  • Genre: Sci-fi/Thriller
  • Runtime: 2h 28m
  • Ratings: 7.8/10 (IMDb) and 91% (Rotten Tomatoes)
  • Box Office: 1.153 billion USD

 

Much time after the events of ‘The Avengers’ and ‘Age of Ultron’, the United States Government begins to take a toll on the superhero team, planning to install a system of control over all active superhuman people called ‘The Sokovia Accords’, named after the city in which Ultron lifted into the sky and nearly killed the whole world with, an event, though catastrophe was avoided, still ended with mass damage and the deaths of many innocent people. With U.S. Secretary of State Thaddeus Ross (William Hurt) forcing the Accords on the Avengers, the team is soon divided amongst how they should handle the pressing issue, Steve Rogers/Captain America (Chris Evens) pushes to keep superheroes free from governmental control, mainly due to his distrust since Hydra was revealed to still be pulling the strings at S.H.I.E.L.D. On the other hand, Tony Stark/Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) suggests that oversight above teams like the Avengers would be better for everyone, mainly since Ultron and the incident with Sokovia were direct and indirect actions respectfully from Stark himself, the guilt eating at him inside. Meanwhile, Helmut Zemo (Daniel Brühl) steals an old book containing the trigger words to reactivate the super soldier within a captured Bucky Barns, a.k.a. ‘The Winter Soldier’ (Sebastian Stan) and then impersonates him, setting off a bomb at a conference for the Accords, killing King T’Chaka of Wakanda. With Zemo spreading chaos and the Avengers divided, it all culminates in a civil war between the two opposing teams, T’Challa/Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman), Vision (Paul Bettany), Scott Lang/Ant-Man (Paul Rudd) and Peter Parker/Spider-Man (Tom Holland) all getting roped into the ensuing battle between the all mighty Avengers.

 

‘Civil War’, similar to ‘The Avengers’, was another hyped and slightly worried for movie, and pretty much for the same reasons, everyone was excited about the concept and how the beloved Russo Brothers were gonna handle the storyline but feared that with such a big topic at hand from such a massive storyline in the comics, it would fall short or not live up to the potential is needed and deserved to have. In the end, like ‘The Avengers’, this film rocked it, becoming some people’s favorite Marvel movie by the time they left the theatre. It’s a film that invites intelligence and thrill to a usually action-based and sci-fi/fantasy-run world, grounding the Universe in a new type of suspenseful narrative and realistic tone, well as realistic as you can get with a flying tin can fighting a 100 year-old man with a metal frisbee for a weapon along with a spider, a panther, a witch and a robot with a cape. This movie, amongst all the others in the MCU, is a heavily emotional one as the torment of Bucky Barnes, the orphaning of Tony Stark and the internal struggle of Steve Rogers, a man out of time, are all explored and are delved into with both intrigue, mystery and anxious thrill. It may have divided our favorite superheroes, but it united everyone for one great two hours and twenty-eight minutes.

 

2017 – It

 

  • Release Date: September 5th, 2017 (USA)
  • Genre: Drama/Thriller
  • Runtime: 2h 15m
  • Ratings: 7.3/10 (IMDb) and 86% (Rotten Tomatoes)
  • Box Office: 700.4 million USD

 

On one late, rainy afternoon in October of 1988, Georgie Denbrough goes outside to play with a paper boat his older brother made for him, losing it to storm drain and encountering a shadowy clown going by the name of ‘Pennywise’ (Bill Skarsgård) within the sewer. Pennywise entices Georgie to reach in and take the boat but chews and rips off his arm, taking the boy down into the darkness. The following summer, Georgie’s older brother Bill (Jaeden Lieberher) recruits his friends Richie (Finn Wolfhard), Eddie (Jack Dylan Grazer) and Stanley (Wyatt Oleff) to go search around the marshes of their down Derry in hopes to find a still living Georgie. Along with way, being harrassed and attacked by a gang of bullies, the four teams up with other kids Ben (Jeremy Ray Taylor), Beverly (Sophia Lillis) and Mike (Chosen Jacobs), calling themselves ‘The Losers Club’ and investigating into the tragic history of their small town, all of them encountering ‘The Dancing Clown’ Pennywise one way or another. After discovering Pennywise to be one of the many forms of a cosmic creature they simply name ‘It’, The Losers Club bands together to defeat the inter-dimensional being, descending down in the sewers where young Georgie was lost, confronting their most horrific and darkest nightmares along the way.

 

For a straight-forward horror movie, it isn’t the best, but that’s the thing, it isn’t really a horror movie. ‘It’ is a suspenseful, thrilling, anxious and even at times, hilarious film who, though has the power to scare you and creep you out, it isn’t the kind of film meant to disturb you for the following days or make you fear some sort of everyday object or concept, it’s simply a fun, comedic and exhilarating movie with visual horror and unnerving content galore. Being only the first of a two chapter cinematic narrative, it really drew everyone in similarly to how other films like ‘Fantastic Beasts’, ‘Star Wars’ and the MCU did, gathering a massive fan base comprised of book-lovers and movie-lovers, horror-junkies and comedy-junkies. It brought a twisted light to a once indifferently viewed work whose only film adaptation before was a, for lack of better words, ‘interesting’ TV mini-series. ‘It’ is a hooking movie that can easily pull any viewer in with its own narrative, visualistic and horrific deadlights. 

 

2018 – Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse

 

  • Release Date: December 14th, 2018 (USA)
  • Genre: Fantasy/Sci-fi
  • Runtime: 1h 56m

After being bitten by a radioactive spider and witnessing the defeat and death of Peter Parker (Chris Pine), a.k.a. The amazing Spider-Man, an artistic Brooklyn teenager named Miles Morales (Shemeik Moore) picks up the mantle and becomes the one and only ‘Spider-Man’. During the big fight between Spider-Man and Kingpin (Liev Schreiber) with his gang of hench-villains, a machine called ‘The Super-Collider’ is activated but explodes, sending a ripple across New York City. Afterwards, Miles runs into an older, run down and alternate dimensional version of Spider-Man, named Peter B. Parker (Jake Johnson) at Peter Parker’s grave and the two, after an incident with bio-electrical webbing, team up to stop Kingpin, Peter B. reluctantly agreeing to train Miles. With the threat of Peter B.’s death, the two eventually discover a series of other Spider-Mans, all from different alternate dimensions brought here via The Super-Collider. The two Spider-Men, now joined by Spider-Gwen (Haliee Steinfeld), Spider-Ham (John Mulaney), Peni Parker and her robotic sidekick Sp//dr (Kimiko Glenn) and Spider-Man Noir (Nicholas Cage), go after Kingpin and his legion of supervillains to stop them before The Super-Collider can be reactivated, possibly destroying all existence with it’s awakening. 

 

‘Into The Spider-Verse’ is one of those movies that you might not consider watching or giving much attention to at first, but that is where you are dead wrong. This film is honestly, and without much exaggeration, one of the best movies to come out of this decade, a masterpiece of animation and a narrative gem. From the FPS to the story to the animation styles to the voice acting and music, this is a movie you can not miss, and out of all the films on this list, one of the must-sees above the rest. ‘Into The Spider-Verse’ is an eye-catching and relaxing blend of comedy, action and wholesome storytelling, leaving viewers with a list of memorable moments and quotable lines for days. The best one can do is just jump into it and go along for the ride.

The Mad Titan, Thanos (Josh Brolin), has begun his campaign to locate and collect all six Infinity Stone, burning down and destroying anything in his path for universal balance. With his killing spree conquest officially on, the disbanded Avengers must reunite across multiple planets and nations to stop the incoming threat. After an attack on the last remaining batch of Asgardians whom survived Ragnarök, Thanos obtains his second stone, the Space Stone, Thor (Chris Hemsworth) is left to float in space and the Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) is sent back to earth, warning Tony Stark/Iron-Man (Robert Downey Jr.) along with Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) about the threat. The two, joined by Spider-Man (Tom Holland) hijack one of Thanos’s ships and head to his dead homeworld of Titan to confront him, running into half of the Guardians of The Galaxy (Starlord (Chris Pratt), Drax (Dave Bautista) and Mantis (Pom Klementieff)) along the way, the two teams threatening each other as the ladder searches for their kidnapped Gamora. Beforehand, The Guardians reach the distress call from the Asgardians and discover an unconscious Thor who, after waking up, splits the team in two, the thunder god, Rocket (Bradley Cooper) and Groot (Vin Diesel) heading to the realm of Nidavellir to forge a new ‘Thanos-killing’ weapon while the rest head to Knowhere to get to the Reality Stone before Gamora’s (Zoe Saldana) adoptive father gets to it first. Thanos captures Gamora and the stone, leaving Starlord/Peter Quill in a wreck. Meanwhile, on Earth, the remaining Avengers (Captain America (Chris Evens), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) and Falcon (Anthony Mackie)) rescue Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) and an injured Vision (Paul Bettney) from Thanos’s children, taking them to Wakanda and Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman) in hopes to remove the Mind Stone from Vision’s forehead. Thanos reaches Titan and fights half of the Avengers there, nearly killing Tony and obtaining the Time Stone from Strange as a trade, teleporting to Wakanda where a massive battle between the other Avengers with the Wakandan army and Thanos’s horde of ferocious beast is unfolding, defeating the remaining Avengers and obtaining the Mind Stone. After nearly being stopped by Thor, now armed with his new ‘Stormbreaker’ axe, Thanos gathers enough energy to snap his figures and wipe out half of all living beings in the universe, forever balancing a poverty-stricken and dying expanse of trillions upon trillions of beings. Five years after ‘The Snap’, the defeated and split-in-half Avengers, rejoined but still broken, forges a plan to traverse the time vortexes of the Quantum Realm in hopes to locate and obtain past versions of the now destroyed Infinity Stones so that they can reverse the demigod titan’s actions, Hoping through time and messing with the fabric of existence, they run into a past version of Thanos, who ambushes them. Everyone clashes in an ultimate battle, culminating in the endgame between two fathers, Tony and Thanos, for the fate of all existence.

 

‘Infinity War’ and ‘Endgame’ are two beasts of films, both standing alone and together incredibly. The literal marvel that was the build up for both of these films is one of those ‘once in a lifetime’ moments, something that will forever be remembered. ‘Infinity War’ was what ‘The Avengers’ were back in 2012, but this time amplified tenfold, bringing together everyone’s favorite MCU characters for a common goal, pinning and pushing them against and with each other, leading to some awe-striking, jaw-dropping, tear-jerking and heart-pounding moments, leaving all with a strong, impactful and emotional ending that can only be responded to with a collective “What!” followed by moments of conciplation and silence to help digest the superhero spectacle that unraveled before them on the looming silver screen. ‘Endgame’ does exactly the same, but increases all those emotions and feelings exponentially. With some of our favorite characters either broken or swept away in dust, the pure visceral hype and excitement continuing to build higher and higher till the moment you’re in your seat. The film itself is another work of depressing but exhilarating art, the viewers not being able to help themselves from falling into the stakes, the characters, the scenery and the action. These two films (which are brought together for one slot (because you can not talk about one without talking about the other)) have both gone down in history, this generation having the privilege to introduce the next to this ever-expanding universe. From the beautifully crafted characters like Tony, Steve and Thor to the imposing and magnificently-crafted villain that is Thanos, from the enticing worlds of Titan, Vormir and Wakanda, and from the wondrous and marvellous work of the Russo Brothers, ‘Infinity War’ and ‘Endgame’ are two movies that will forever be remembered, loved and gawked at, from now till the end of time.
