Mandatory Top 10 of the 2010s: The 10 Best Original Movies of the Decade

Hollywood has always been afraid of original or challenging ideas. With Tinseltown putting an increasing emphasis on recycling old concepts, original movies seem like they’re harder and harder to come by. Especially within the realm of genre movies, it seems like just about every movie is based on something we’ve seen before. Whether that source material comes from books, video games, plays, comics, or even other movies, Hollywood has displayed a penchant for making films that are perceived to be safe bets with a built-in audience. But that doesn’t mean that there aren’t great original movies, it means that they’re simply few and far between. With that in mind, here are our picks for 10 of the best original movies of the 2010s.
