Our Favorite Movies: Individual Top Ten Lists

Avatar photo

Our staff writers share their favorite movies! Discover their individual top ten lists, from cult films to recent releases and hidden gems.


Last week we published our list of the 100 best films of all time (according to us), but, when it comes to movies, it’s also a matter of taste. No writer’s individual list will look the same, and that is the beauty of film. To give you an idea of what the Loud and Clear staff likes (and hopefully some recommendations of great films to watch!), we’ve asked some of our writers to share their favorite movies as well. Below are our individual top ten lists, in alphabetical order! Don’t forget to share your own lists of favorite movies with us on our socials!
