New Episode from CinemaJaw: CinemaJaw 453, Pamela Powell – Best Movies of the Decade

Happy New Year JawHeads, and welcome to the first episode of CinemaJaw in the new year and the new decade. Welcome to 2020!

This marks an interesting turn, not just in film, not just in our calendar but as film critics and podcasters we can look back over a decade long body of work. The past 10 years have been as tumultuous a time as any, and as art reflects life, we have gotten some amazing films. Going back through our ten years of “Best Of” lists, Matt K and Ry The Movie Guy have curated a selection of the best films of the decade.

Of course we needed another voice on the dias. Someone who has taste that differs from Matt and Ry… That someone is film critic and friend of the show Pamela Powell.

Pam has also reached the ten year mark in her career as a critic. Perhaps most famous these days for her work with business partner Chuck Koplinski, Pam has a focus on women in film, Pamela also gravitates toward films that are eye-opening, educational, and entertaining with the hopes of making this world a better place. Pamela travels to film festivals around the world and still makes time to backpack and travel to reconnect with nature.

There is a lot of ground to cover here. Welcome to 2020, again. Let’s dive right in!
