Irresistable Sidetrack

Avert your eyes while I make a necessary sidetrack here -

Top 100 movies of the 00's -

Check out the list and see how you fare.

For my part, I was thinking that there were a a LOT of movies surprisingly NOT on the list. I know I've seen more than the following movies in the past ten years.

Least I'm pretty sure. :O

96 Shrek
90 Bend it like Beckman
79 Spiderman
75 School of Rock
66 United 93
64 Spirited Away
62 Devil Wears Prada
43 The Dark Knight
41 HP and the Sorcerors Stone
38 Pan's Labyrinth
33 Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon
31 Pirates of the Carribean
28 The Queen
9 The Passion
3 Incredibles

That's all. I either chose not to see the others on the list, or I never heard of them. Bah.


  1. I recommend #86 "Let the Right One In" for a novel take on the global vampire fixation. Swedish, subtitled, and subtle.

    #83, "Goodbye Lenin" is funny and heartwarming for a dark comedy.

    #77 "Children of Men" a gritty not-too-distant future with the yummy Clive Owen.

    #73 "Master and Commander" a great period high seas adventure.

    #67 Can't believe you never watched "Little Miss Sunshine"!

    #59 Wall-E might be my favorite Pixar to date!

    #56 "Atonement" based on McEwan's best-selling novel is heartbreaking, but beautiful.

    #37 "Billy Elliot" is an awesome story of doing what you love despite everyone you know telling you to play football instead of ballet dance.

    #27 Loved "Star Trek", #24, Shaun of the Dead, #22, City of God, #16, Eternal Sunshine, #12 AMELIE!!, #10 Slumdog Millionaire, and #6, Memento.


    Seen quite a few others on this list, but these are the ones I would recommend, especially the foreign films, like City of God, LtROI, and Amelie.

    If I had to pick just one for you, I'd pick Amelie.

    Yeah, I watch a lot of movies. But I still can't make it through Sin City without being bored to tears.

  2. Heh. I'm just glad I've seen some of the movies on the list. I think this same newspaper did something like this on books, and I was able to pick out two or three books that I'd read. It made me feel... pathetic. And then I felt pathetic because I felt pathetic. :)

    Sin City - I refuse to watch because I feel it is one of those movies that is nauseously demeaning to women. It reminded me of this old Rat Pack movie I watched a while back that was supposed to be funny, but it just wasn't. The women were pawns. And I guess I live close enough to the area where the real Chicago and Detroit mob went around burying people, putting them in cement... I just didn't think those elements were funny at all.
