I find it hard to choose between Dallas Buyer Club and The Imitation Game!

If the decade begins on Jan 1, 2011 and ends on Dec 31, 2020, how can you have a poll where 16 and 1/2 months of movies have yet to be released in the 2010's?
The new millennium began on Jan 1, 2001, and lasts 10 years. It ended Dec 31 2010. So, have we forgotten that little fact! Your math is off.

Paok-Kilkis, I hate to be that guy, but I was in that position myself having the same misconception and... you're wrong on this one, XXI century most definitely started on Januarry 1, 2001. Otherwise XX century would've been just 99 years and not 100. 

It's a common misconception which has a lot to do with our perception of cultural decades. Culturally 90's started in 1990, but mathematically, well, 1990 is still 1980's, even if that makes little sense to us because of traditional perception. 

The eerie fact is thinking on how people all over the world celebrated the new Millenium in 2000 being hopeful and all that, but that wasn't only a mistake but also a harbinger of actual start of the millenium - 2001 which, with all the tragedies, political uncertainty and eistential dread is eerily a more logical fit for a start of a new era.

Paok-Kilkis, your understanding for "2010s" is correct, but explanation may be misleading to another possible issues.

Nick, It's not the same issue as I also started long time ago.
When we talk about "sixties", "nineties", "zeroes", "tens" and similar, we mean all those years: 1960-1969, 1990-1999, 2000-2009, 2010-2019.

But the millenium is irrelevant. This poll is about the decade. The 2010s has indeed began on January 1, 2010 and will end on December 31, 2019, according to the Gregorian calendar. It's pretty straightforward that this poll should include movies released from 2010 all the way through the end of the current year.

To all: Even if you wish to use the cultural decade, this poll should not have been a suggestion at all, as this "Deacde" IS NOT over yet. This suggestion for a poll was made so as to "HOG" the idea 9 months in advance. It is 5 months old and there are 4 months left. There ought to be a rule that polls should not be made in advance of their intended usage (Live Date).

FYC to empty 1 or 2 rooms in the list for possible new biography movies coming till the end of current 2019 year, so this poll would be acceptable at any moment.
