With the end of the decade came the predictable onslaught of “best of” articles, listicles and reviews of the 2010s in everything from news to music to pop culture and more. So, we here at FilmWeek feel we’d be remiss if we didn’t ask our critics to share their favorite films of the last decade with our listeners and to hear suggestions from FilmWeek listeners as well. Los Angeles Times film critics Justin Chang and Kenneth Turan released their top films of the decade this week along with the Los Angeles Film Critics Association.

Plus, we’ll explore the decade in comedies. Were the 2010s an overall good decade for the comedy genre? Or did you find it lacking when compared to another decade? What were some of your favorite movies of the 2010s?

Here are our critics' favorites of the decade, in no particular order:
