My favorite movies of the 2010’s

This list was much harder to make than my favorite movies of 2019. I was able to get it down to 15 and that’s how many Chris Coyier did, so I figured that’s great.

It was especially difficult because movies released earlier in the decade have the advantage of nostalgia and repeat viewings. I might revisit this in 5 years to see how my opinions change.

old man Wolverine and young Laura
15. Logan

Daniel Kaluuya sits with eyes wide and tears streaming down his face
14. Get Out

Owen Wilson walks in front of a painted Paris streetscape
13. Midnight in Paris
(I know Woody Allen is horrible and I debated putting this here. But this movie made my heart ache like not many before or since.)

Sam and Suzy
12. Moonrise Kingdom

Food ornaments for grown ups

I love a pizza or hamburger ornament as much as the next fool, but I especially adore these new food ornaments from Anthropologie.

Now you can decorate your tree with your favorite grown up treats. Many of them are an acquired taste.

Kingsman: The Secret Service

Colin Firth as a gentleman spy? Yes please. Kingsman: The Secret Service is just awesome, combining great actors, fine suits, comedy, and over-the-top-violent fight scenes. It’s James Bond meets Kick-Ass (basically the only kind of James Bond film I’d be interested in seeing from this point on).

Watch the trailer again and then go see it in theaters immediately.
