Best Movies of the Decade (Individual Ballots)

by Staff
Best Movies

It was a lengthy process choosing our list for The Best Movies of the 2010s, but with the voting process over and the picks finalized, we thought it might be nice for readers to get a peek into the process. Below you’ll find the individual ballots sent in by Goomba Stomp’s Sordid Cinema section; participants were asked to rank their top fifteen choices, and were free to add additional films as special mentions for tie-breaking purposes (thus, why some lists are longer than others).

There’s an eclectic mix of tastes across the site’s film writers, and we hope that shows both in our final list, as well as in these individual picks. It’s been a great decade for movies, and we all look forward to what the next one will bring! Thanks to everyone for submitting their votes, to Editor-in-Chief Ricky D for tallying them up with his secret formula, and to all the readers that make writing for Sordid Cinema such a pleasure. – Patrick Murphy, Editor @ Sordid Cinema
