Being that this year was full of total crap until the later half, it is essentially the best example of this decade in film. Many of the ten years in this decade have had really bad intros, and exuberantly awesome endings, for example: 2009, 2007, and 2006 (to say the least). That being said, I am making a list that shows the finer movies in all of these years. In the end, I will ultimately have to decide: The top ten of the decade – final draft.
