Mike’s Top Films of the Decade (390-381)

And here we are. The big list. Theoretically the one we’ve been building toward. But really anticlimactic when you get down to it. You think the list of my ‘favorite’ films of an entire decade would be the thing you want. But really it’s just me going back over a lot of the stuff I covered on the other lists and a broad regurgitation of my top ten lists from the ten years. So, rather than treat this like some big holy set of rankings, I’m just gonna do what I did with all the other lists – try to get you to see some of these you haven’t seen before and maybe introduce you to some cool movies.

It’s important to note, as it’s important to note with all my lists – the rankings don’t really matter. The number is only a function of the day I put it together. The only way to truly get a real ranking of my favorite films of the decade is for me to take the pool of films I used and make up this list from scratch at least ten different times and then use some sort of formula to figure out the average position of each movie and then create a ranking. And that’s not the goal here. I don’t care about the numbers. I care about talking up the films I like and trying to get people to see some of them.

So, if you feel like you want to get upset about where something is ranked, know that it’s a broad ranking. For the most part, films are in the general range of the 25-50 where I’d generally rate them next to everything else. Things will change as I revisit stuff and as time goes on. Like I said, this is really just about telling you what I enjoyed most in the hopes that it gets you to check out some of the stuff you either didn’t know about before or never bothered to see (or maybe saw and didn’t fully appreciate at the time). That’s it. It’s really just about celebrating movies. Don’t get so hung up on the numbers.

So, here are my 500 favorite films of 2010-2019: (more…)


Mike’s Favorite Original Songs of the Decade: #57 – “Hearts Beat Loud,” from Hearts Beat Loud

 

57. “Hearts Beat Loud,” from Hearts Beat Loud

In the movie, this is the first song the band (brilliantly titled “We Are Not a Band”) plays, and it becomes sort of the perfect theme for the film. It’s a beautiful song that has shades of the major emotional themes of the film while also just being a really nice moment where a father and daughter make music together.

Mike’s Favorite Original Songs of the Decade: #58 – “From Now On,” from The Greatest Showman

 

58. “From Now On,” from The Greatest Showman

I love this song for a lot of reasons. The least of which is that it’s the big song where he realizes, “I’ve been an asshole, and I need to change, and now I’m gonna be better!” And you realize, this dude did some fucked up things in real life. The movie portrays him as a dreamer, but his famous quote is basically how stupid the public is and how willing they are to be conned. So it’s funny to hear this song as some triumphant moment where he finally changes. But anyway, the song is really good. It’s big, it’s catchy, and it’s uplifting. Everyone’s dancing, you get your big finale. It fits the part of the movie it’s meant to be in very well. Plus I love that, in the movie, the song just kind of peters out because everyone got shitfaced and gradually dozed off while singing. That’s pretty awesome.

59. “Suspirium,” from Suspiria

That hypnotic piano riff is just amazing, and then Yorke’s voice is just perfect for this song. Somehow this fits the tone of the film (and that finale) perfectly.

60. “Mighty River,” from Mudbound

It’s just a great song. I’m a sucker for any song that brings a gospel choir into the mix in the final verse.

Mike’s Favorite Original Songs of the Decade: #61 – “Happy,” from Despicable Me 2

 

61. “Happy,” from Despicable Me 2

I mean, of course. How could you not put this song on a list of the best original songs of the past decade? The problem is separating the fact that this song was a #1 hit on like, every radio station for about a year but also technically is an original song from a movie. It was written for Despicable Me 2 and is more memorable than literally everything in that entire movie and its sequel (and the Minions spinoffs, for that matter). It was nominated for an Oscar! It’s hard to rank this higher just because it feels like it fully crossed over into just ‘music’ and isn’t just a ‘film’ song, but I still need to show it the proper respect. It’s a really likable song and just so infectious. It’s hard not to want to groove along with it and it’s hard not to feel better whenever it comes on.

Mike’s Favorite Original Songs of the Decade: #62 – “Glasgow (No Place Like Home),” from Wild Rose

 

62. “Glasgow (No Place Like Home),” from Wild Rose

This is our most recent song on this list. I mention that only because we’re coming off this year and it’s fresh in my head. And I remember lamenting just a few months ago how weak the crop of songs from 2019 were. And now, having some time to reflect, this song towers above the rest as clearly the best thing written during it. So of course it’s fitting that the song got no Oscar nominations and the film got relegated to the scrap heap, really only getting notice in the UK.

For those who haven’t seen it (and you should, because it turns Jessie Buckley into an immediate star. So when you see her in something in the next two years and think that’s what did it, you’re wrong. It was this), it’s about a Scottish woman who dreams of being a country singer and going to Nashville. So the film is about her trying to be a mother to her kids and also fulfill her dream. And this is the song she sings at the end, when (as the song indicates) she realizes that she’s happy right where she is. And it’s just a beautifully-written song (written by Mary Steenburgen!), and Jessie Buckley absolutely destroys it. That vocal performance really puts it over the top, if you had any doubt that it was a terrific song.

Mike’s Favorite Original Songs of the Decade: #63 – “Who Did That to You?” from Django Unchained

 

63. “Who Did That to You?” from Django Unchained

This is the best of all the Django songs. And you know it within two notes. It also shows up at the best possible spot within the movie, right as Django blows up the mining company guys and escapes so he can go back and take care of everyone else back on the Candie estate. It’s just a perfect song for that moment and just a great song in general. I heard this before I really knew who John Legend was. I’d heard him as guest vocals on a couple of other tracks I liked, but never really knew who he was (keep in mind I’m like 3-8 years behind on just about all current music). But aside from that, I just loved the song. This was the one of all the Django songs I’d have nominated that year. And I think they submitted four of them.

Mike’s Favorite Original Songs of the Decade: #64 – “Start a Riot,” from Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

 

64. “Start a Riot,” from Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

Aww yeah. This is my absolute favorite song from this movie. This song is straight fire. The ultimate club ‘get the fuck up’ song. You could play this at any party when it’s really hopping and get everyone totally on board. This song is perfect. You can put this on to get hyped for a workout, or to get your energy up for the day, or if you just wanna go nuts in your car. It’s just an amazing all around song. To me, this is the best thing the Spider-Verse soundtrack’s produced.

Mike’s Favorite Original Songs of the Decade: #65 – “Buddy’s Business,” from Brawl in Cell Block 99

 

65. “Buddy’s Business,” from Brawl in Cell Block 99

Yeah, Buddy. I was all over this song from the minute I heard it over the end credits of this movie. First off… it’s the fucking O’Jays! How amazing is that? Craig Zahler is friends with the O’Jays and just makes music with them. It’s just a wonderful throwback 70s tune that perfectly encapsulates the kind of grindhouse/B-movie type experience the film tries to give you. Not everyone knows about this movie, though anyone who’s been around me the past few years has definitely heard me recommend this. I’ve personally shown this to like five people, all of whom at the end went, “Oh my god, I loved that.” Because it’s just a badass, fun movie. Basically it’s a prison movie. Vince Vaughn ends up in jail, and basically things start to get worse and worse over the course of the film. What’s great about it is that it doesn’t start where you expect, doesn’t always go the route you’d expect, and doesn’t really put him in the ‘prison’ type situation you’d expect him to be in until really the last hour of the movie. But trust me, it’s worth it. The film gets further away from reality as it goes along, and by the time you get to that third act, you’re just all in.

Plus, it’s the only film I’ve seen that fully utilizes Vince Vaughn’s 6’5” frame. They shoot him full frame in this movie, like Fred Astaire, and trust me when I tell you this — you believe he’s going to kick the shit out of anyone he gets his hands on. I can’t say enough great things about this movie, and this song is just an amazing companion piece to it that I love to listen to on its own. But the kicker is when other people hear it, like it, and then I get to talk about how great the movie is on top of it. That’s the total package for me.

Mike’s Favorite Original Songs of the Decade: #66 – “I See the Light,” from Tangled

 

66. “I See the Light,” from Tangled

The songs from Tangled are like, good-plus, but nothing all-time memorable. However, this is the closest song that approaches the level of all the other great Disney stuff from all-time. Still not totally as memorable as the others, but in terms of pure songwriting, it can be in that discussion. It’s Alan Menken, so of course it’s well-written. But this is just a beautiful song. This is a song that, for a few years, I kept forgetting how good it was until I went back and heard it again. It’s the best song from Tangled by far, and is really the best song of this entire Disney era of movies, until Frozen (and then Moana). But really, the songs from Tangled are really the only Disney songs worth mentioning since like, Tarazan. (I know Princess and the Frog had songs, but they’re just kind of okay to me.)

Mike’s Favorite Original Songs of the Decade: #67 – “Music to My Eyes,” from A Star Is Born

 

67. “Music to My Eyes,” from A Star Is Born

Another Star Is Born. I’m telling you. Get comfy. There’s a lot of them coming. This one I really like because it matches the progression of the narrative. It starts with Bradley Cooper singing the first verse and singing this beautiful love song. And then Gaga just takes over in the second verse, and it’s just perfect. And then they sing together at the end — it’s so good.

The only way to truly get a real ranking of my favorite films of the decade is for me to take the pool of films I used and make up this list from scratch at least ten different times and then use some sort of formula to figure out the average position of each movie and then create a ranking. And that’s not the goal here. I don’t care about the numbers. I care about talking up the films I like and trying to get people to see some of them.

So, if you feel like you want to get upset about where something is ranked, know that it’s a broad ranking. For the most part, films are in the general range of the 25-50 where I’d generally rate them next to everything else. Things will change as I revisit stuff and as time goes on. Like I said, this is really just about telling you what I enjoyed most in the hopes that it gets you to check out some of the stuff you either didn’t know about before or never bothered to see (or maybe saw and didn’t fully appreciate at the time). That’s it. It’s really just about celebrating movies. Don’t get so hung up on the numbers.

So, here are my 500 favorite films of 2010-2019: (more…)


Mike’s Favorite Original Songs of the Decade: #68 – “Sunflower,” from Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

 

68. “Sunflower,” from Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

This is the big hit from the movie. I saw it got nominated for like, legitimate music awards. It’s a great song. Amazing beat, good lyrical flow. It’s just a really nice song. NOT my personal favorite from all the ones in the film, but it’s near the top.
