The Greatest Films Since 2000: 83 Films + Counting

Postby zubidoo » Sat Jun 04, 2011 8:41 am

Since my initial post on the list forums my list of the best films since 2000 has grown from 34 films to 83. I thought that this huge leap in new additions warranted an entirely new post to get some new thoughts and suggestions for movies that you think I should check out for this list. I've been re-watching all of the films that I've seen since 2000 (plus checking out some that I've never seen) so that I can look at these films with a new and critical eye. Some movies have remained classics in my eyes, others aren't quite as good as I remember them being, and some I've actually liked a lot more this time around. These movies are prime examples of quality filmmaking, whether they are adult dramas, action movies or teenage comedies. The acting, direction, cinematography, writing and pacing are all top notch. Above all, though, they are, in my opinion at least, the most memorable films of the decade. I've put the films in alphabetical order from the best quality to the least (5.0/5.0 movies then 4.5/5.0 then 4.0/5.0 then 3.5/5.0).

It only makes sense to show you the films I've watched critically that HAVEN'T made it onto my list, and I will list them below. Foreword, though - just because they didn't make it doesn't mean they are BAD movies, in fact some are decent, some are okay and some are watchable, but in order to be on my list they have to be, at the very least, a GOOD movie. There MAY exist the possiblity that I could bump one or two of these up and add them to my list, but I'm 99% sure they won't. Yes, I've seen more movies than what's on both lists, but I'm only including films that I've watched after I started this project, so anything I don't remember clearly will not be included. This list exists so that you know what I've actually seen so that if you want to recommend films to me then you now know what not to recommend. Anyway:

I'd definitely put Oh, Brother Where Art Thou on my list of the top movies.
