Jake Gyllenhaal’s start/end of the decade is the one to beat pic.twitter.com/EmEnwsQDjJ— Star Wars: A Marriage Story (@thiseffingnerd) December 26, 2019
I thought "Well, what about other start to decade end productions of actors? Might be something to look at." because why not.
James Marsden is A person I don't really feel that strongly about, but I turned on my TV and Straw Dogs was on. I went "Is that James Marsden?"
All of that to not mention that movie at all in this post! Whee!
FIRST MOVIE: Death At A Funeral (2010)
He's just happy to be here!
LAST MOVIE OF THE DECADE: Sonic The Hedgehog (2019/2020)
[Yes I'm cheating a bit here.] He doesn't look much different, besides probably being very tired of having to shuttle around a CGI character yet again.
From his film start in 2011 (God, it's already 8 years old) to now, the film world was looking to be John Boyega's oyster, and you know what? It still is!
FIRST MOVIE: Attack The Block (2011)
LAST MOVIE OF THE DECADE: Star Wars Episode 9: The Rise of Skywalker
Kind of want an Attack The Block anthology like series, provided they don't kill it like the Cloverfield ones.
Recent Star / Questionable Dating Choices Chanteuse Florence Pugh is making a name for herself, starting....
FIRST MOVIE: The Falling (2014) [Yes, that is Maisie Williams!]
LAST MOVIE OF THE DECADE: Little Women (2019)
Oscar Isaac is prepared to fight everyone at Lucasfilm and we love it. But first, remember that Robin Hood movie?
No not that one, this one:
FIRST MOVIE: Robin Hood (2010)
LAST MOVIE OF THE DECADE: Star Wars Episode 9: The Rise of Skywalker, where he is an entire snack.
And here is Rebel Wilson. Just - Here she is.
FIRST MOVIE: Bridesmaids (2011)
LAST MOVIE OF THE DECADE: Cats (2019)
[Spoiler (click to open)]
Is it a glow-up or a no-up? You make the call!
I was going to put another actress here but it would be the SAME last movie in ROS so I pivoted. I sort of remember this first movie, but I definitely don't remember Angela Bassett being in it.
FIRST MOVIE: Jumping The Broom (2011)
LAST MOVIE OF THE DECADE: Otherhood (2019) [must've come out after Endgame]
The difference is there, but certainly not as drastic as Rebel's, I'd say!
I really wanted to see if Idina Menzel was in something other than you know what for any portion of the decade and holy shit, this woman's filmography is 90% the same character after 2013.
So I bent my own rules.
FIRST SHOW OF THE DECADE: Glee (2010 - 2013)
LAST FILM OF THE DECADE:
Same color top and everything, we love a color coordinated queen.
How many times will ___ Has Fallen be on Gerard Butler's list? You left your best movie in 2008, my dude.
FIRST MOVIE: The Bounty Hunter (2010) [predates HTTYD by a few months]
LAST MOVIE OF THE DECADE: Angel Has Fallen (2019) [See? SEE?]
You know what else has fallen? His looks! HEY-YO!
Time for second person I have no strong opinion about besides "Huh". Did you know that James McAvoy was in something about Lincoln's assassination?
FIRST MOVIE: The Conspirator (2010)
LAST MOVIE OF THE DECADE: It: Chapter 2 (2019)
These aren't his best images, I admit.
Let's finish this up, Big Willie Style with Will Smith.
FIRST MOVIE: Men In Black 3 (2012)
I very vaguely remember this movie so he might actually be playing his father here?
LAST MOVIE OF THE DECADE: SPIES IN DISGUISE (2019)
I respect him enough to not put the bird version of his character.
Post some of your own, what's a film glow up or no up? Have your faves gotten into better movies, or are they like Mr. Butler up there?
PART 2 IS COMING TOMORROW!
