Top 10 of the 2010s – The Movie Robcast

We started back in 2016 as The Electric Shadows Podcast. We enter the twenties as The Movie Robcast, with a gorgeous new image, courtesy of designer Bridge Fazio. Check out Bridge’s work at www.bridgefazio.com/.

And episode 77 is a biggy, in which Robs Daniel and Wallis run through their respective Top 10s of the 2010s.

Not to spoil the surprises too much (although the movie quick-witted will be able to guess some entries from the tags), but amongst the fine choices is a war movie, a superhero film, the decade’s best horror movie, the decade’s best action movie, tear-jerkers, thought-provokers and smile-raisers.

We hope you enjoy the journey. If you like what you hear, why not leave a review here: apple.co/2ZRwq4w, or wherever you listen to your podcasts.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 poster - Andrew GarfieldDirector: Marc Webb

Writers: Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Ocri, Jeff Pinker

Cast: Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx, Dane DeHaan, Sally Field, Denis Leary, Paul Giamatti, BJ Novak, Embeth Davidtz, Campbell Scott

Cert: 12

Running time: 142mins

Year: 2014

The lowdown: Aptly named director Marc Webb spins a sequel superior to his déjà-vu afflicted 2012 reboot. A fresh story, new villain courtesy of Jamie Foxx’s Electro, enhanced action set-pieces and Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone’s chemistry make this reminiscent of Sam Raimi’s original trilogy. Shame that a lurch into ill-advised darker territory scuppers much of the good work, leaving you feeling you’ve been duped into caring about all the brightly coloured motion and emotion.
