This page shows you the list charts. By default, the movies are ordered by how many times they have been marked as a favorite. However, you can also sort by other information, such as the total number of times it has been marked as a dislike.
New millennium, new technology. Film cameras were the standard way to shoot a movie for over a century, and now they to had to make space for upstart digital. Without digital cameras, zombies would’ve stayed dead; 28 Days Later was only possible with how quick and easy it is to set up with them. Sofia Coppola (Lost in Translation) and Neill Blomkamp (District 9) certainly benefited from the new technology.
Movies were also used to absorb our collective trauma. We escaped into magic and wonder in the months after 9/11 with Harry Potter and The Lord of the Rings, while we celebrated the end of the Great Recession by getting the hell off this planet with Avatar. And speaking of those series, we didn’t want their installments taking up all the spots on this list, so one movie representing the whole franchise was chosen for those worthy.
And your vast comic-book trivia knowledge became a social asset, not a bullseye for beatings. Iron Man, The Dark Knight, and Spider-Man 2 opened up new ways of connected storytelling (and money making). And it wasn’t just superheroes making the leap to the mainstream. Fanboy culture, the internet, and sites like the one you’re reading now helped bring “genre” movies to the cultural forefront: zombies (28 Days Later, Shaun of the Dead), sci-fi (Avatar, Serenity), horror (The Descent, Saw), and fantasy (Pan’s Labyrinth).
Meanwhile, under-served voices started to make some noise in the mainstream with films led by females (Mean Girls, Whale Rider, Bend It Like Beckham, Twilight), made African-American filmmakers (Love & Basketball, Barbershop), and featuring Asian-American stars (Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle, Better Luck Tomorrow). And that’s not including the increasingly easy access to international material like City of God and Let the Right One In.
And we still haven’t touched upon Pixar’s golden age (WALL-E, Finding Nemo), Hollywood finding the formula for comedies perfectly balanced between smart and dumb (The Hangover, The 40-Year Old Virgin), or that the Fast & Furious series got its humble beginnings here. A lot happened in this decade: Discover it all with the 140 Essential Movies of the 2000s!
This is the list of 100 best films of the '00s (2000-2009) according to the major Norwegian internet film site montages.no. This list was published on their site in seven parts in January and February of 2010. This top 100-list includes 103 films as in the original list The Lord of the Rings-trilogy, and the Kill Bill-films where only given one list spot each.
Last year’s Thanksgiving-timed Popdose 100 proved so popular that this season we’ve compiled three critical-consensus lists for your reading (and arguing) pleasure — documenting our choices for the best films, albums and songs of the 21st century’s first decade. In fact, we’ve become so enamored of building these lists that it wouldn’t be surprising, a couple years from now, to find us offering one every day from Thanksgiving to Christmas. (Nah … that might detract from Mellowmas.) What can we say? We just love to quantify what we like, using elaborate point systems.
We begin with the decade’s best movies — and, if nothing else, our list is certainly genre-film-friendly: Somewhere in the middle, Let the Right One In, Hellboy, Hot Fuzz and Mulholland Drive sit proudly side by side. Because our crew of participants isn’t all that big (11 of Popdose’s writers contributed), a few personal favorites that one might not expect somehow earned enough votes to make the cut (hello, Dodgeball!); nonetheless, we were all pleasantly surprised to see that our compiled Top 100 offers such a nice balance of prestige films and high-quality popcorn fare. Of course, since this list is being posted before Thanksgiving, 2009’s holiday films (and likely Oscar bait) aren’t represented; over the coming months we’ll no doubt be kicking ourselves that we didn’t yet know the quality of films like Up in the Air, Invictus, The Lovely Bones, Nine … Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel… With that caveat in mind, away we go!
All the other end-of-decade lists we've done for the Telegraph have been groping for a consensus, trying to determine which works of art and cultural moments made the biggest splash in the culture. This is a very different list. It's purely one critic's picks: 100 favourite films from the ten years. There are blockbusters, thoroughly obscure conceptual documentaries, and a bit of everything in between.
I haven't been shy about including lesser-known films, partly because the best thing lists can do is encourage people to make new discoveries -- almost everything here is available on DVD somewhere. Bear in mind that these aren't the "defining" films of the Noughties, the most important, or even necessarily the best. They're simply the ones I liked the most. Without further ado...
nb: one film is missing, Les Petites Vacances (2006) doesn't exist in this site.
At the end of the 2000s, TIFF asked 60 film curators, historians, archivists, and programmers to vote for the most important films of the decade. "Their perspective should give us a longer view of the films made in this decade, the films that should stand the test of time and be acknowledged as historically influential works in the decades to come."
TIFF also made a list of the [url=http://www.icheckmovies.com/lists/cinematheque+ontarios+best+films+of+the+90s/mjf314/]best films of the 1990s[/url].
The top films of the 2000s as selected by the members of the Filmspotting forum. The first 20 are in the top-tier and the rest are in the second-tier. Otherwise the list is unranked.
For me, this list is a lark.
While I've been counting down the Top 31 TV Shows of the Decade, my movie-centric colleagues Gregory Ellwood and Drew McWeeny handled the big screen, with Greg offering his Top 25 of The Aughts and Drew doing an exhaustive Top 50. Let's just say that HitFix has already done an extra job of covering the best of the decade in movies, with or without me.
My only pause in my Top 31 (approaching No. 2 tomorrow!) was to count down the Top 20 TV Shows of 2009. At a certain point, listing has become as central to my December routine as caffeinating and showering and more essential than shaving and watering my struggling tree. And since I also have been known to write about movies on this blog, it only seemed natural that I whip out a Best of the Decade list for movies as well.
I started with 10, but that didn't work. I was leaving out too many. I got down to 20 comfortably, but I was still leaving out a few movies that I *really* wanted to mention. From there I pushed to 30 and, at the urging of a Twitter follower, went that extra step to 31, just for symmetry. I'm not going to do these as a one-per-day affair with entries approaching 2500 words as I get near the top. Been there, doing that. I'm breaking these out as three blog posts. Simple enough.
Unlike TV, where my list is The *Best* 31 Shows Of The Decade Which Aren't "The Shield," I'm not playing this out as having any sort of Best of the Decade definitiveness. It's not quite a "favorites" list, because I've given some thought to craft and importance beyond just pure rewatchability. Mostly, I'm sticking my blog's name in from of the list so you know that these are probably the 31 movies I liked the most from the past decade. Secretly, do I think they're the best? Probably. But this isn't like my TV list, where if you disagree with my No. 1, I'm going to surreptitiously sneak over to your house and cut the cable lines, because you're not worthy of television service. If you aren't happy here? This is my list, but feel very free to share your opinions
Published in the February 2010 issue, as stated in the article this list represents "not a 'top 30', but the films that in our opinion best represent the decade's most distinctive oeuvres and movements". The full article introducing the list can be read at the source link.
