Top 10 Movies of Recent Years

I decided to document/post my top 10 movies of the past few years since I’ve become a movie fan. Of course I didn’t see every movie each year but I saw most of the notable ones as well as some lesser known/underrated ones. Hopefully you’ll get a few ideas for movies to watch from this list. The number 1 movies for each year are the ones that gave me the most enjoyment and I thought about long after the credits rolled. When I think back to that year I will happily remember that movie.
