REBL's Recommendations

As the year comes to a close, it’s not only marking the end of 2019 but the end of another decade. We chose to celebrate the start of 2020 by looking back on the creative triumphs of last 10 years, and the movies that came with them. Although the majority of the team consider themselves (self) titled “film connoisseurs” - do not worry. We hold a wide range of taste and favourites diving deep into niche and particular aesthetics, while simultaneously holding on to the basics. For example, Magic Mike & Magic Mike XXL were close to making the list, however, after thought, consideration, and long team discussions, they unfortunately were removed and other titles took the polls. As a result, the culmination of this list takes a close look at genres, directors (shout out to the women down below) overall interests of the team, while showing the progress that our artistic culture has made over the last 10 years. As the holidays fast approach, you now have the perfect list of entertainment for the weeks ahead. Tune back in when 2030 hits for what the next 10 years have in store.
