Just for fun, what's everyone's favourite 10 films since 2000?

If and only if there's at least 10 lists from different people, we'll do an elimination series around it. This is not expected though, so don't think of that way.

This is mine off the top of my head (in an order tbd):

Lord of the Rings: Return of the King (2003)
The Dark Knight (2008)
The Wolf of Wall Street (2013)
Blade Runner 2049 (2017)
Spirited Away (2001)
There Will Be Blood (2007)
Pan's Labyrinth (2006)
Children of Men (2006)
The Departed (2006)
The Shape of Water (2017)

Eternal Sunshine definitely crossed my mind, but it's been years since I've seen it., same with Lost in Translation. 3 Billboards was certainly very good, but it didn't really stand out to me.

Fences is the only one I never heard off, might add it to a very long to watch list.

Butterfly Effect was good, I wouldn't say Top 10 good, but yeah admittedly its up there. Surprised me considering Ashton Kutchner was just the dude from 70s Show & Dude Where's My Car at the time. I think a friend was all about it at the time so I checked it out.

40 Year Old Virgin was one of the better comedies, and those teen/adult style comedies. If American Pie was 2000, I'd go with it since I feel it started that all. 40 YOV I wouldn't. Again, they're up there.

Meh...I'm so over action movies and comedies as a general rule...i mean i will watch them from time to time,  but i usually need to be coerced into it.

If it has marvel attached to it i usually run away.

TBE stood out to me for its accurate portrayal of chaos theory and how much of our lives are circumstance. It was a great thought experiment, and an important one for understanding empathy. I thought then and still do that it deserves more attention. I’m no cinematographer , but solid story and acting really entertain me.

I agree, it was layered & sorta like The Matrix in its concept. I did like the storyline alot, and wasn't so bad in the whole romance aspect from what I recall. Yeah it was psychological. A surprise hit, probably might warrant Top 19, I dunno. Underrated although I thought it was well reviewed. Didn't they make a sequel & couldn't even get Ashton to sign on?  Good film, sorta like Eternal Sunshine, a thinkers film & also surprise hit & unassuming star in a good role.


Momento might deserve Top 10 material.
