The Defining Movies of the 2010s, According to the ‘Closer Weekly’ Staff

It’s truly been a fantastic decade for movies, from those that garnered tons of Oscar attention to films that reignited the imaginations of fans (Star Wars) or brought fan-favorite characters to life (the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe). As we get ready to head into 2020, we here at Closer Weekly thought it would be fun to look back at what big-screen offerings defined the 2010s.

If you’re expecting to find a list of flicks that won Best Picture at the Academy Awards, we’re sorry to disappoint. Don’t expect to find The King’s Speech, The Artist, Argo, 12 Years a Slave, Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance), Spotlight, Moonlight, The Shape of Water, Green Book or whatever will snag the trophy this year — though there are some nominees that made the cut.

Scroll down below to see which films the Closer Weekly staff chose as the movies that defined the last 10 years.
