Hi, guys
I'm preparing a 3-poll edition for the end of the year, it's called Remembering the 2010s, the list are in preparation but feel free to suggest as many entries as you want:

Most defining movie: 
https://www.imdb.com/list/ls090971080/

Memorable events: 
https://www.imdb.com/list/ls090488591/

Celebrities : obviously the list will include Leo, Lady Gaga, Harvey Weinstein, Greta Gerwig, Gal Gadot, I guess even Donald Trump... who else do you think should be in the list?

Thanks for your help!

With the Defining Movie list? Do you mean movies that made a cultural impact over the globe? Or are good examples that best feature what the decade holds ... sensibilities wise? Because I don't understand the inclusion of the Sacha Baron Cohen The Dictator.

Plus, you need an actual question in the text of the list please.

Avengers: Endgame (2019) [no matter what you think of the film] needs to be on the first list. It being such a box office and cultural juggernaut as it is. Or you can replace it with The Avengers (2012) if you want to ... keep Endgame from sinking the poll based on sheer popularity.

FYC:
The Wolf of Wall Street (2013) simply because of the abhorrent greed and banking deregulation that this and the previous decade will be known for (decades from now).

The Lion King (2019): A carcinogenic symptom of rampant and rabid sentimentality making this remake the biggest animated film of all times.

I didn't put the questions in the list because I was in a hurry to plug these lists before someone else does (don't laugh, I've gone though this at least 5 times this year), there's no hurry but better to start these lists now.

I included "The Dictator" because it was encapsulating the political climate of the early 2010s (Obama's wars on the Middle East, Arab spring etc.) the way you put it is good, but I'm also considering movies that best captures the political / economical / cultural and sociological changes that went during that tumultuous decade, in a direct or indirect way.

I would definitely include "Wolf of Wall Street" and "Avengers" but not "The Lion King", too recent and besides, I think it would be more appropriate to use  the first live-action Disney adaptation that started the new trend, just like I included "Frozen" for the girl-power movement ("'Brave" started it but "Frozen" was more emblematic on that level, especially with the kiss-twist)

Are these explanations satisfying? :)

Frozen was (and still) a phenomenon. So? That's a great choice. And I like your thinking on The Dictator choice.

Most defining movie:

Drive (2011) - more or less introduced the 80s vibe to our area, as well as a neo-noir style and a stoic lead character that had an impact on succeeding action movies
-Black Panther (2018), The Babadook (2014), Melancholia (2011), Mad Max: Fury Road (2015)

Defining event:

I hate to say it but Avengers: Endgame (2019) became the financially most successful movie of all time, the culmination of a 22-part blockbuster series, and it was one of the rare movies everyone seemed to be hyped about. Perhaps it's even more an event than a movie.

Celebrities:

-Meryl Streep (was it during this decade that she became the 'moral conscience' of Hollywood?)
-J.J. Abrams, who, for better or worse, played a huge part in kicking off the nostalgia wave we're currently experiencing

The Hunt: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt2106476/

It is a good example of the problem in which our society is right now.

So weird, because I've just been thinking on how this is almost the end of a decade.  :)  Bear in mind that what I think is memorable, others may not.  :)

Memorable movies: The Expendables - an action star reunion of all ages!    

Memorable events:  The flood of Disney live-action films that began in 2010 with Alice in Wonderland.  The surge of reboots/revivals on T.V.  Steve Harvey gives the title of Miss Universe to the wrong girl (that was this decade, right?).     

Memorable celebs: I'd say Chris Pratt, seeing as he went from being Anna's (slightly pudgy) husband, to becoming a star in his own right and marrying Arnie's daughter!  The beginning of Millie Bobby Brown, who I think will really take off.  Jordan Peele; never seen his work but he seems to be the new Hitchcock/Serling.  Darci Lynn of AGT. 

I will probably think of more, so I may post again.  Cool idea.  :)

Also the one of the Robertsons could be added to the celebs list (preferably Williie or Si).  2010's was the age of Duck Dynasty; the cardboard cutouts of Jase and Si at Wal-Mart are still in my mind.  :D

Thanks for all the help, the final list is in construction, I think I'll try to include like 5 actors, 5 actresses, 5 directors, 5 "controversial" people but I don't know which other field I should cover, singers maybe?
