New from Kevin Wozniak on Kevflix: Decade Rewind: 2010

As the 2010’s have officially come to an end, I will be looking back at each cinematic year to give a personal decade retrospective of the best movies and performances of each year.  I will break down my Top 10 movies of each year, along with my favorite performances from that year.  I will also be listing my favorite’s from each genre, like Best Animated Movie and Best Action Movie, as well as best of the technical aspects, like Best Cinematography and Best Screenplay.  This will all culminate into my picks for the best movies and performances of the decade.  

*Rankings of movies and performances are numbered, with 1 being the best movie/performance.

*Gifs for each category are not specifically of the “winners” of each category, just one of the nominees.

 

 

 

 

 

THE YEAR: 2010

2010 was a very formative year for me and one of the stronger years of the decade.  This year was loaded with some of the biggest auteurs we have working in Hollywood today, like David Fincher, Darren Aronofsky, Dany Boyle, Martin Scorsese, Mike Leigh, The Coen Brothers, and Christopher Nolan, among others.  It was also a strong year for animation and indies.  For me, I just graduated from film school that summer.  I graduated having learned a lot of aspects of film, from production to studying history and genre, yet was still forming my opinion and perspective on film and having the great films of this year come out really helped shape that.  Here is a look at my favorite movies and performances of 2010.
