Now that 2019 is coming to a close and the 2010s are coming to an end, instead of of arranging some sort of list for particular movies or so, let's talk about one of our biggest highlights we've had in entertainment for the past 10 years.

 

Let's talk about our personal favorite film, video game, finished TV series and music album of the decade. It can be from any genre and so on.

 

Starting with mine:

 

Film:

Blade Runner 2049

It's been sitting with me for 2 years now since I saw it back in 2017, and since then I've been reflecting it as whole, not only did it surpassed the original Ridley Scott film for me but it hits all the right notes of what a great film should be. This is some of the best effects I've ever seen, cinematography, production design, art design and so on. The plot is very simple, about a replicant officer finding his own humanity in the mists of his case. Sure the casting of Ryan Gosling as K might've been typecasted since he's been known as the quiet cool dude especially since he appeared in the film Drive, but I thought he did an excellent job playing the role, in fact everyone does. Of course the may not be 100% perfect, like it could've worked a lot better have it not been connected with the original film, even with the multiple viewings I've had I've even encountered some editing mistakes. The reason why this film is a personal favorite for the decade is because not only it elevates this already established world and gives it a whole new life but also there's a strong message about humanity that in the end it did resonate with me, and director Denis Villeneuve did his absolute best with the material he had to work with. In terms of taking an existing universe and making it new, I actually prefer this more over Mad Max Fury Road, which is another film I'm sure it will be included in others Favorite of the Decade.

Game:
Dark Souls

Not only I picked this game because it became huge influence for many other titles, it created a whole new sub-genre, it created a whole new way online games can be played, and it even helps more how replayable and fun it is. Not only this is my favorite game of the decade, but of all time. Some of the best level design I've ever seen, some of the best art design, best bosses...well, aside Bed of Chaos but still. This game is just brilliant. I started playing this when I was facing tough times in college and back then I started figuring things out on my own on what to do,, where to go, lore ideas, etc Once I finished the game for the first time, I immediately started New Game Plus and ran through it again. This is not only a game, it's an experience that both Hidetaka Miyazaki and the team at FromSoftware expertly created, and they succeeded. Even if others may prefer a game like Bloodborne over this, I still found more familiarity with this, just as if Firelink Shrine was an nostalgic safe home.

Now, I was never that much of a TV person so honestly I've never watched that much TV in my recent years. I've always heard about how great shows like Breaking Bad and cartoons like Adventure Time are, but never had the chance to dive into them. So instead, my pick for favorite show of the decade is an anime, and a very special one you should check out if you haven't.

 

Series:

Puella Magi Madoka Magica

This is a 12 episode long anime, it's hard to get on detail about it without giving anything away, and for the years it existed outside the anime community it's never really gotten that much of attention. I'm just gonna get right into it, this thing is a fucking masterpiece. It's been described before as a deconstruction of the Magical Girl genre in anime but I think of it much more than that. Both story and character development in this is masterful, it's also gorgeous too how it plays off with the art design like with the witch enemies. Without getting into the last quarter of the show and the finale which deserve an essay of their own, everything about it is just powerful. If you're into anime or not and never seen Madoka, this deserves your attention more than ever.

Album:

Plastic Beach

Was never that much of a music person, but I love Gorillaz for their blend of genres, and with Plastic Beach they reached their highest level. One of the most experimental albums of the decade, it's become my favorite Gorillaz album too, some of my favorite material of theirs is on it, in fact every song pretty much is a banger. I also love the mood and aesthetic it goes for, the moment I heard that intro followed by Snoop Dogg's vocals for the first time I knew, oh yeah this is something special. That's why Plastic Beach is my favorite album of the decade.

And there you have it, now what are your favorite of the decade picks?

This is a very nice thread! 

 

Let's see, for me I think it's: 

 

Film: 

The John Wick series probably. (This is a very hard decision since the 2010s had some great movies.) 

I just love the story and I love the pure action in these films. And I will never forget the Baba Yaga scene it was freaking epic.

Keanu Reeves did a fantastic job.

(You know what? I gotta give Zootopia an honorable mention, it's probably my second favorite film from the 2010s)

 

Game:

Undertale.

Story is absolutely amazing, characters are very lovable and overall gameplay is fun.

Second favorite is Final Fantasy XV, I really enjoyed the gameplay and the graphics are breathtaking. 

 

TV series: 

Stranger Things.

I love everything about this show. Cool 80s scenery and aesthetics, horror, lovable characters and the story is very interesting.

Film:

The better Birdman, and Birdman's a great film. If you liked Birdman and Who Framed Roger Rabbit this is a brilliant melding of the two, that branches outside of Hollywood and speaks about humanity as a whole. If you dislike abstraction this probably won't be for you, but it is far more than that.

 

Game:

There's nothing to say that hasn't already been said. But I have a deep respect for any work that can make me feel something without killing off their characters, Joel's daughter aside. There hasn't been a game since that has given me the amount of immersion this game delivered. I look forward to what is to come. 

 

Series:

MrWT465.jpg

 

One of the most atmospheric works put to screen. If you let the world take you in you will forget you are watching a show, and take that from someone who has trouble immersing themselves in shows and movies. It's a show where you will get more out of yourself from watching it, as the answers lie within. 

 

Album:

A rebellious fun psychedelic ride that is coming from a honest musician.

Best Series:

Stranger Things (2016-current) - Great characters, fantastic pacing and writing (mostly, let's forget about that one episode in S2) and overall just very enjoyable to watch. Been rewatching it recently as well with new people and it still holds up very nicely.

Best Game:

ItxUpnZ.jpg

Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn/Heavensward/Stormblood/Shadowbringers (2013-current) - The game that got me back into MMOs again.

Best Album:

JzVopBK.jpg

Kalafina - Red Moon (2010) - I'm a huge Kalafina fan (RIP) and this is one of their most consistently amazing albums. Many of my favourite songs of theirs aren't actually on here but this has the highest level of quality across the board. The live blu-ray from this album's tour with most of the tracks performed is also phenomenal.

Runners up: Draconian - Sovran, GUNSHIP - Dark All Day, ling tosite sigure - I'mperfect, Aimer - Midnight Sun, PERTURBATOR - Dangerous Days
