 I checked Metacritic and the only review of those two movies that was not overwhelmingly positive was this one:

Mad Max sucked.

I was a dissenter about the insanely rave reviews the last Mad Max movie.  The Road Warrior is one of my all time faves.  It seemed to me that for Fury Road, they said "let's take the climactic road battle scene of TRW and turn it into a whole movie."  It was entertaining - I wouldn't say it sucked - but far from great.

Wolf of Wall Street was good but not an all-decade movie.


drummerboy

Yeah, I agree about Wolf.

And I'm not so sure about the two P.T. Anderson movies either, Phantom Thread and The Master. I'm a big Anderson fan. Boogie Nights and Magnolia are two of my favorite movies, but I didn't quite get these two. I need to re-watch them to see what I may have missed.

Lion King, Joker, a star is born, captain phillips, argo

Wide range of opinion here.

For example I liked Phantom Thread and did not like "The Master".

The Revenant

Inception

Restrepo

Get Out

Interstellar 

The Martian


DaveSchmidt

Searching for Sugar Man

Twenty Feet From Stardom

Amazing Grace

I wouldn't necessarily say this list is the "best" in terms of art, but these are some of my favorites:

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes
Escape from Tomorrow
Hereditary
Inception
Logan Lucky
Rise of the Planet of the Apes
The Cabin In The Woods
The Wolf of Wall Street
We're The Millers
Whiplash


Train_of_Thought

Faves that immediately come to mind are Three Billboards, The Revenant, Legend, Rudderless, American Sniper and World War Z.

I did love Under the Skin and Get Out, but here are twelve that came to mind:

A Separation
The Grand Budapest Hotel
November
Once Upon a Time in Hollywood
LaLa Land
Guardians of the Galaxy
I, Daniel Blake
Life of Pi
Amour
The White Ribbon
Beasts of No Nation
45 Years

Haven't seen The Irishman yet.  I expect I'll want to add it to my list.

He's missing the Robocop remake. What a shame.

 to be fair, most of them are pre-2010. I might have included number 1 as a favorite

 The Robocop remake isn't a bad film if you've never seen the original. It's way better than either of the original's sequels.

 Are you being sarcastic?  I mean, I love the books but the movies are pretty dreadful.  I've seen it suggested that HP would really benefit from an HBO 7 Season Game of Thrones style treatment and I think I agree.

 Very fond of Let the Right One In, Moon, and The Hurt Locker.  The Lego Movie was surprisingly good and clever too.

 I was. But I'm big on costume, set design and special effects. And I painted a lot of Sword and Sorcery so I would be happy living at Hogwart's. 

But no I didn't expect it to make the MOL top ten.

That said, my movie top ten has a great deal of old old stuff on it.

Still love On The Waterfront.

 Well, I think we see eye to eye then.  I feel, for the most part, that they nailed the look of the thing and the casting was also, for the most part, dead on.  Its just impossible to make a movie series out of a set of books that hinge on detail to such a great degree.  By the time we reach Dobby's crucial scene in Hallows (2010), the movie viewer hasn't seen the guy in almost a decade (since Chamber in 2002).
