  • Best films of the last decade?

    What would be your top 10? This is too hard for me so I'll have to think about it.

    I don't know about "best" as some arbitrary measure by critics, but my favorite, the one that I've watched over and over again and get continuous levels of enjoyment from, is Watchmen.

      Of the prominent top 10/20 lists I have yet to see Memento or The Royal Tenenbaums. I'd have to go with Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, No Country for Old Men and Almost Famous as some of my favorites.

        Here's my top 10 list. Keep in mind, however, that I have no taste in anything whatsoever.

        Dark Knight (2008)
        Old School (2003)
        Casino Royale (2005)
        Spider-Man 2 (2004)
        Wedding Crashers (2005)
        40-Year-Old Virgin (2005)

            It was pretty solid. Slightly depressing and sobering. But I watched it not knowing anything about it and was pleasantly surprised, I recommend it.

                    +1 on the rec. It's a great film.

                      Am I the only person on the planet that thought No Country for Old Men was just okay? It's nowhere even near 'great' IMO.

                      Oh, and +1 for the Pianist and There Will Be Blood. Forgot those two, those are pretty good.

                        I enjoy the man-hunt type films. This one happens to have a bizarre, terminator-like hunter that uses compressed air and silenced shotguns. Pretty bad-ass. I like that there is no good or bad defined in the movie and that there's no 'justice prevails' element. It brings into question if evil is something new, or just something inherent in all men and generations.

                        I can see why some folks are luke warm about it.

                          Shaun of the Dead
                          There Will be Blood
                          Devil's Backbone
                          Memento
                          Up
                          Two Towers
                          City of God
                          Amores Perros
                          Wrestler
                          Gone Baby Gone
                          In Bruges

                          A couple of those are favorites, not bests.
                          I'm apparently the one person who didn't like Eternal Sunshine. It did absolutely nothing for me.
                          I liked No Country, but it wasn't a top-tier movie for me.
