The Irishman is upon us so perhaps we should hold out on our judgement till 2019 is over, but I nominate Mad Max Fury Road (2015) anyway, and if you haven't seen it on the giant screen with a dozen speakers making your guts shake, kindly piss off with your "overrated, underwritten feminist garbage" or a little more thought out "mediocre!" talk.

There was not a more cinematic movie experience in the past decade, a start to finish mind-blowing audiovisual treat with practical effects, old-school car chase, gasoline explosions and a disfigured fella playing on a flamethrower-equipped double-electric guitar in the middle of a post-apocalyptic desert wasteland. Who needs a boring ass story if you get this level of action scene choreography, car and prop design, freaks and fanatics and Hugh Keays-Byrne as an ugly, despotic villain, this movie had the cinema go ohhh and ahhhh for two hours.

Directed by a fucking grandpa, George Miller's Fury Road is a throwback and a modern classic at the same time. Your turn.

Fury Road is a great shout out and it's my pick as well.

The only other movie I can think of that I really liked was The Walk. Wish I could've seen it in the theater.....hell, in IMAX would've been insane.

Fury Road for me as well, in fact Fury Road wins just for that truck with the drums and guitar guy on it.

The biggest issue with Dredd is it came out just after The Raid which was a similar sort of film.

Both funnily enough reminded me of those old Mega Drive platformers where you've got to get to the top of the building to take out the main bad guy.
Was about to say the same thing, and I don't think I'm able to pick a better martial arts movie. Ever. Original Raid is a 10/10, though at times Raid 2 outshone it, the original prevails where Dredd, Drive and Fury Road delivers: sidelining the unnecessary story and letting action dictate plot. Plus the Mad Dog fight.

This has probably been the weakest decade for movies in my lifetime. However, I did enjoy Grand Budapest Hotel.
Mostly agreed, so much talent switched to TV, which had the strongest decade in turn, similar thread coming up.

I do owe Her, Tony Erdmann, The Master, Roma, Capernaum, The Great Beauty, Senna and Cold War a watch among others, whereas many put the utterly terrible Boyhood on top which is ridiculous, just like naming a Marvel movie the best. If anything, Wonder Woman or Joker are better spandex titles, and still not qualify for a final showdown.

Wolf of Wall Street
Excellent shout and movie mate, incredible how busy Marty's at 70.



Feature Scorsese films 2010-2019:
  • Shutter Island: excellent psychological thriller unfortunately spoiled by trailers
  • Hugo: solid family entertainment & excellent Georges Méliès homage from someone in love with film history
  • The Wolf of Walls Street: Scorsese throwback with ludes and Margot Robbie full frontal ❤❤❤
  • Silence: Scorsese's metaphysical ride questioning fate in a hostile environment, decades in making and perhaps decades before rediscovered as a m'piece
  • The Irishman: sitting at 100% @ RottenTomatoes, supposed to demystify romanticized gangster flicks & give Pacino, Pesci Oscars
Several award-winning documentaries incl. George Harrison: Living in the Material World

Feature length pilots for Boardwalk Empire and Vinyl, very Scorsese-themed series,

Producer's work (almost produced Joker which is mainly inspired by Marty's work)

DVD/Blu-Ray commentaries


Motherfucker still has it, I mean damn! This might just be his best decade!

Pesci winning another Oscar would be stunning.
