Memento was close, but I don't think it really qualifies. I adore that film.

I however hate Children of Men. Despised every minute of that film.

I really wanted Watchmen on here. It completely made me happy beyond words seeing it after reading the graphic novel again just before it. Loved Watchmen since I read the singles as they first came out.

How anyone could look at some of those Original Trek movies and then Rag on this the first of a series to breath life into a Franchise that had it's guts ripped out is pure ignorance.  If you keep Star Trek grounded with the old rules and guidance then it would (will) remain in the grave that bad direction put it into.  I enjoyed all of the Trek movies and was thrilled to see this new one.  I like how everything tied together.

I like this list too.  I would keep Spidey 2 in here over spidey 1.  Only for a few reasons.  Some of the emotional impacts in the second movie came off stronger.  As well as much as I like William Defoe as a baddie Alfred Molina as Doc Ock just oozed brilliance.  And come on Doc freaking Ock.  He was amazing.  I love 1&2 but 2 came out a head by a bit in my books.

And Incredibles rule!!  I only wish they had turned this into a 2 or 3 movie franchise.

Having loved Children of Men, I was delighted to see it on this list! IMHO Pan Labryinth belongs there too. 

I remember thinking when Hellboy came out that this was how comics should be adapted! Great visuals - great story - true to the source material! 

Guilty pleasures ... I also have a soft spot for the Chronicles of Riddick (special affects and cheesy acting) and Constantine (gotta luv Gabriel and the Lucifer!) inspite of the fact it was incredibly miscast and moved from England to America. And finally Unbreakable ... M. Night Shyamalan's last decent film.

This list is fine but Spider-man 2 is weak sauce...I'm sorry but that movie sucked! Star Trek also should not be on the list though I enjoyed it...it did not quite feel like star trek and abrems even says on the comantary that he wanted to make it like Star Wars.

My list would be:

1. Lord of the Rings Trilogy

2.Children of Men(a rare perfect movie)

3.Pans Labrynth

4.TDK

5.Iron Man

6.Casino Royale

7.Sin City

8.Sean of the Dead

9.Distrect 9

10. Avatar(how could that not be on your list?)

It is too soon to be making a best of list for this decade, precisely because of all the love for Avatar here. Dances with Smurfs was technically brilliant, but the plot was largely derivative, and nothing that we have not seen before.  It remains to be seen how well this film will age, but I suspect it will age more like Abyss than Aliens.

LOTR

Spider-man

X-men

Titanic....

I think I would need a full list of movies from last 10 years to give a more accurate list for me.

It wasn't too soon to know Lebron James would be one of the best bball players to lace em up, when on his first game he went for 25 pts 9 rbs and 6 asts.  Sometimes you just gotta have an eye for talent, trust and belive no matter how many years go by when you look back at the 2000s you'll remember Avatar.

Chris, how can you despise every minute of Children of Men?  That movie is great, you can't possibly hate the single shot sequences like the one in the car where Julianne Moore gets shot?

Rob, I applaud you for not including Avatar on the list.  For one, it just came out and therefore it's impact has yet to be felt.  Plus, box office bank doesn't equal quality.  In some cases, yes it does, but not everytime.  I'm not talking just the blockbusters that suck like Transformers 2, but look at the films that tanked at the box office from the 70s, 80s, and 90s, that are now cult classics, films like Blade Runner.  Yeah, the 3D is neat, but overall the film just lacks something be it story or any sort of emotional investment in the characters, etc.

I thought this list was pretty good with one exception.  

Hanso, I know I'll get bashed for this but Children of Men is terrible.  I watched it when it first came to DVD and I simply couldn't get into it.  Now, after hearing you (and others) rave about it for soooo long, I gave it another shot a couple of months back.  I barely made it half way thru it before I was bored out of my mind.  Clive Owen is simply one of the most over-rated and entirely wooden actors working in the biz today.  He was quite good in Sin City, I'll grant you, but that was because his wooden acting skills fit the film and the character. 

Cuaron is a pretty darn good director, but that doesn't change the fact (at least in my mind) that Children of Men sucked.  It's just like Peter Jackson is a pretty darn good director too, but King Kong was not a good film either.  It was an hour too long and the composite work was crappy (darn website censorship).  Granted King Kong, himself, was expertly crafted.

I'll agree with an above poster and say Pan's Labryinth should be on here.  It can take Children of Men's place.

Ok not only have I never heard of "Let the Right One In" but after watching the trailer I'm not sure I'd even want to see it , yet it was in the top 10? I agree with most of the choice on here but "Let the Right One In"? I don't think so. What about the Harry Potter movies, 300, Watchmen, Beauwolf, X-Men,  Sin City,   hell even though I have made a solemn vow not to ever see any of theese horible excuses for vampire movies and would most likely bitch about them being on the list The Twilight Movies would have been better than  Let the Right One In.

Oh and Dazzler, Titanic? Are you kidding me? not only was that a movie that doesn't belong being mentioned on this Best of List. It wasn't even made in the 00's it came out in the 90's .
