Except for 1 and 2, how is Iron Man topped by 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7? The list sucks... Far to many that should have been on it are not.

I am a little surprised that Serenity gets no love....maybe not worthy of top 10 or 15, but should get more than an honorable mention...gets better everytime you watch it

Great LIST!!!

THANK YOUTHANK YOU THANK YOU,

This had to be one of the harder list to put together. I mean you look at the 60's and 70's list put together by peeps who probably had the luxury of having let time truly test and filter the great movies of those decades, but to try to think of the 10 best movies out of the plethera of great movies we've had over the last decade and man thats gonna be tough.

 

Great overall list, I LOVE Let the right one in, THANK YOU for including Spidey 2...potentially one of the best comic films out there. Dark Knight A no brainer (It is an oscar winning comic book movie)

I'm glad Star Trek is on there, I really liked what that did to re-new the franchise. I like how you described it as Crisis on Multiple earths Trek. And I have to admit First contatct is my favorite Trek film, but this is a close second or third

Spidey 2 A GREAT CALL

Right on Gauley!!!  Agree on your thoughts on Spidey and Trek!!

Kara S,

Could've the new Trek been better, Sure... and that would've been great! Yet, a small vocal few constantly claim that it fails to live up to the standards set by the old shows... Maybe you didn't watch the same old Trek that I did. Sure I loved it, but it's nowhere as good (or intelegent) as your memory recalls. Sorry, It just isn't.

If you want to dislike this movie on its own merrits, then fair enough. Yeah, it wasn't a work of deep philosophical art, but if you think the old Trek was, then maybe your context for what constitutes High Art is a tad stunted.

2009 Trek was a fun and eneratining film and on that level, it was well crafted... not to mention that it saved Trek from its near death experience.

Gideon, I have admitted several times that Star Trek was a fun, exciting film with great special FX.  I'll even admit that the acting was good.  But I still contend that the script was badly written.  It was full of holes and the science was preposterous.  The interior of the Enterprise, particurlarly the engine room, looked like it was designed by a 2 year old.

Was the old Star Trek perfect?  No.  Were the FX primitive?  By current standards you bet.  Were there some really bad eps?  Yeah, have you seen Spock's Brain?

But there were also ideas, values and things to aspire to.  Where there was Spock's Brain there was also City On The Edge Of Forever, and Amok Time and a dozen other really great episodes.

The latest movie didn't show me any ideas or values other than you should blow your enemies up real good before they blow you up.  It was an empty exercise in special FX. 

I'd go on but I started  repeating myself several pages ago so I'll spare you having to  read through it again.  Lets just say that I found the movie a gigantic disappointment and leave it at that.

TKay, lets just agree to disagree.  You liked Star Trek, I didn't.  I liked Avatar, you didn't.  They're only movies.

I'm late, but I've been away on holiday. This is merely my opinion at the moment and likely to change from day to day, but #1 rarely, if ever, changes.

#10. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
#9. Shaun of the Dead
#8. The Incredibles
#7. Mulholland Dr.
#6. Iron Man
#5. The Dark Knight
#4. Children of Men
#3. Lord of the Rings
#2. Sprited Away
#1. Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon

Yes, the Shreks and Spideys are not in the list. I thoroughly enjoyed some of them, but eh, they didn't strike my fancy in the last five minutes. And if I were to include crime/spy films (are those officially Mania genre), I'd probably put Snatch (for shear replay value) at #2 with "The Bourne Trilogy" and The Departed in there as well.

Hey,Kara,I've written yet another comment on the 90's best of list if you haven't read it already. I didn't think I was going to add anything else because I thought I was done but I had a little more to say so bear with me!
