12-19-2009, 09:33 AM
I've just finished writing a blog about my Top Ten Films of the 00's (http://viewsacrossthepond.wordpress.com/2009/12/19/my-top-ten-films-of-the-00s/) and thought it would make an interesting thread.

All my explanations can be found at my blog, and including trailers. This is by no means a definitive list, and as always lists are so hard to do - this one took me the best part of two and a half hours to compile - but here it is (and not numbered, placement does not mean one is better, imo, than the other)

Monster (2003) Directed by: Patty Jenkins. Starring: Charlize Theron, Christina Ricci,

30 Days of Night (2007) Directed by David Slade. Starring: Josh Hartnett, Melissa George

Elephant (2003) Directed by Gus Van Sant. Starring: Alex Frost, Jon Robinson

United 93 (2006) Directed by: Paul Greengrass. Starring: J.J. Johnson, Polly Adams

The Dark Knight (2008) Directed by Christopher nolan, Starring Christian Bale, Gary Oldman, Heath Ledger

I decided on the latter. In no particular order;

The Devil Wears Prada (2006)
Ghost World (2001)
Let the Right One In (Låt den rätte komma in) (2008)
Shaun of the Dead (2004)

And a few I love that didn't quite make my top 10 but I still want to mention;
Clerks II (2006)
American Psycho (2000)

All of these films have held a pretty monumental impact on me at different points on the decade, regardless of how I feel about them now. But they mostly all hold up.

Ghost World
Lost In Translation
Mullholland Drive
Marie Antoinette
The Departed
Requiem For A Dream
AI Artificial Intelligence

Honorable mentions to High Fidelity, The Royal Tenenbaums & The Fantastic Mr. Fox, O Brother Where Art Thou, Borat, The Dark Knight, Snatch and The Virgin Suicides cos technically it was released in 2000. I'd say Garden State cos it floored me at 18, but now it's just awkward, and very bad.

Suddenly I feel SO white.
