    although Inglourious basterds was great, it doesn't deserve to be in top 10

    i do agree with There Will Be Blood, The Departed and Fellowship Of The Ring

    Good thread, solid list as well. Biggest thing I disagree with is There Will Be Blood, I thought Daniel Day Lewis carried the film, but the rest was lacking.

    Almost Famous is one of my sleeper picks of this decade

    You just put Training Day and TDK in the top 10 and my list sucks. Saving Private Ryan also came out in 98 so...
    And I won't even touch how The Firm and The Business don't even belong in an honorable mention list for Top 50 movies.

    Any list without this movie on it is outrageous.

    I really suck coming up at top 10 lists, and I haven't seen a lot of the good movies of the decade even, so I'll go with top 10 movies I have seen

    -The Departed
    -Gladiator
    -Amelie
    -The Wrestler
    -The Prestige
    -Lord of the Rings (All included)
    -Pan's Labyrinth
    -V for Vendetta
    -American Gangster
    -Inglourious Basterds

    Hard to decide between favorite movies and best movies. I have some favorites that are not really great movies like Ocean's Eleven, Italian Job, BloodDiamond, Apatow comedies and others

    1. Gladiator
    2. Blood Diamond
    3. Superbad
    4. Troy
    5. Wedding Crashers
    6. Old School
    7. Finding Nemo
    8. Harold and Kumar go to White Castle
    9. American Pie
    10. Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith or Star Trek (Toss up)

    Honorable Mention: Batman Begins, Dark Knight, Van Wilder, More than a Game (Lebron James documentary), Pearl Harbor, Frost/Nixon, and Ironman.

    Basing this completely on how I felt upon first watching the movie in the theater. Gladiator and Blood Diamond I was floored by how damn good of amovie/story/acting/action/dialogue. Can't really give it to sequels because I already have an expectation going in so i am prepared to be amazed (darkknight). Of all those I would recommend Frost/Nixon since I know many people haven't seen it and it is an amazing movie.

    Tough list, a lot of it is going to go off of recent memory for me.

    In no order.

    1. The Departed
    2. The Dark Knight
    3. No Country for Old Men
    4. The Prestige
    5. Into the Wild
    6.Benjamin Button
    7. Up
    8. Star Trek
    9. Zodiac
    10. Blow

    Honorable Mention - Gone Baby Gone, Ingloriosu Basterds, Gangs of New York, Memento

    My list sucks, all movies that came out in the past 3 years [​IMG] I didn't really start getting into movies until a few years ago.

    Although the Wrestler was a great movie, I can't see myself watching it again anytime soon. I think Star Trek was a GREAT movie, and Up >>>Wall-E

    I can't put Lord of The Rings in there, movie was good but OD long.
