Hanso, it's not the filmmaking itself that bothers me so much as the script, the performances and the general nature of it. It's a very well put together film, but the execution of the storyline felt off and I really couldn't get into it. I may have to try it again, I haven't seen it since the HD DVD release came out, but it wasn't a movie that really worked for me in any meaningful way.

The list is ok, I think there are some on here that should not be, but nothing really out there stands above.  I do think there is way to much love to the Rings movies, I was not a fan of this series that talk about a bunch of little people (staying PC on this) walking around and the 3rd movie was way too long, with it's never ending ending.  Plus, I can't see why this was the best and you got Incredibles on here and you leave out the Potter flicks. Not a fan of those, but not one on the list.  Finally, think it is way too soon to even mention this years slew of movies, bottomline, this list should not have come out yet.  Seemed rushed and I don't think that it was thought out like the other list.  Maybe in 2 yrs we can come back to this list and see what stands the test of time

I think this list and the disagreement over what should be on it makes a pretty strong statement on the quality and quantity of genre movies in this last decade.  We are never going to agree on what belongs in the top 10, but I think most of us would agree that we've seen some damn fine genre movies in the last ten years, even if many of them were translated from other forms of media.

 I was upset that Wall-E wasn't on this list.  An exceptional film, as (it seems) only Pixar can make.  But absolutely no issues with LOTR being first.  That series is a masterpiece, and should (and probably will) go down in history as one of the greatest film series ever.

Mayhem, how can you say you would rather have the Twilight films in place of Let the Right One in if you haven't seen the movie?  I guarantee you that the Twilight films are in no way shape or form better than Let the Right One In and I would also suggest you take a look at the film if you have a chance or at the very least see the upcoming remake titled Let Me In.

On the Avatar subject, regardless of how you feel about the film, I don't understand how it can be too soon to put Avatar on a best of the decade list.  I would see the reasoning behind it had it been released in 2001 and someone was saying it'd be placed on a decade list since there would still be plenty of other films that could emerge to take it's place but the decade closed with Avatar, there are no more films coming out.  It's impact is already being felt on the 3D side of things and it's only been out for like 3 weeks.

TKay, I don't disagree with you, but this is the internet.  The internet was invented for people to bitch about movies.

TKay - Are you kidding me man?  Prisoner of Azkaban is the best Potter film out there right now and I wasn't even that big on the book.  Cuaron took that series to another level when he took it off the hands of Chris Columbus, giving a darker feel and look tha would carry for the rest of the series.  There is a reason that movie was JK Rowling's favorite, though I don't know if that is still the case.

hanso 1/1/2010 11:52:23 AM

Come on man, the films are always cutting stuff from the books they'd be too long if they didn't.  Cuaron did take liberties though which he always does if you seen some of his other adaptations like A Little Princess for example.  Overall I think he did a terrific job but it is the least grossing film of the series so maybe more people feel about the movie like you do.

 I'm sorry, but didn't anyone see Sunshine? That was an incredible piece of Science Fiction. The villian part in the last act kinda hamstrung it I admit, but with the mix of visuals, music and the realistic crew annoyance factor, I thought it was one of the best pieces out there, and truly deserved to be on the list much more so than a lot of the films mentioned. Children of Men is one of the few and LOTR as well also bronzed on the list. And to give Boyle another nod, the incredible scope that 28 days later pulled off also should be acknowledged. Again, the last act hurt it a bit, but I feel both instances are the studio stepping in and pulling from Danny what he originally meant to do.

I do like the list, but the one movie that's not on here that really should be and doesn't get the proper credit it deserves is V fo Vendetta.
