Best of the 2000s!

12.31.2009

You've read some of our votes for the Best Films of 2009, but today we're happy to bring you the JoBlo.com Best Films of the 2000s! We took a look back at all the films that came out this decade and picked our favorites. Unlike the 2009 list, this is not one person's individual list. Seven JoBlo.com writers - me, Chris Bumbray, Jenna Busch, Dave Davis, JimmyO, Jim Law and JoBlo himself - all voted for our own personal Top 10s. Then we argued, debated, negotiated and eventually agreed on a collaborative Top 10 of the 2000s.

In the end, I think we were all pretty happy with the list (and even I, who vehemently disagrees with the #1 film, say that). It's got a little love, a few laughs, some action and, of course, zombies.

After reading the list, we invite you to head into the Strike Backs below to make your own Top 10 of the 2000s. I'm sure you'll agree with some of our choices and also have some suggestions on things we missed. But that's all part of the fun! So without further ado, coming in at #10 is...

10. ONCE

We spend a lot of time (rightfully) dogging the romantic comedy genre for taking an experience as powerful as falling in love and reducing it to its most base levels. What John Carney was able to do on a shoestring budget with two non-actors was nothing short of remarkable. We see two aspiring musicians meet and slowly fall in love (hence the Oscar-winning song "Falling Slowly") but their relationship defies cinematic conventions the entire way for an absolutely heartwarming (or heartbreaking) experience that is as real as anything we've felt in our own lives. Steven Spielberg said, "ONCE gave me enough inspiration to last the rest of the year." I saw it in 2007 and I'm still coasting. --Mike Sampson


9. PAN'S LABYRINTH

PAN'S LABYRINTH is the film that took writer/director Guillermo del Toro from the awesome fanboy fave he had already become by making kickass flicks such as CRONOS, BLADE 2, THE DEVIL'S BACKBONE and HELLBOY, and turned him into the awesome "critically accepted" filmmaker he is today...without losing any of his fanboy street cred! In fact, with the two HOBBIT movies up next, he's sure to certify his legendary status even further. In terms of the film itself though, del Toro managed to pull off a brilliant adult fantasy movie which combined a children's fairy tale with sinister themes, monsters and killings, along with a surprising amount of humanity to boot. Visually stunning, fairly dark yet emotionally involving. A modern day classic. --JoBlo


8. ANCHORMAN

No one will ever argue that ANCHORMAN is a finely crafted piece of cinema but what it is, is one of the funniest movies in recent memory (and the only straight-up comedy on our list). Absurdist comedy at its finest, no other comedy this decade has even approached its quotability. It makes this list because like other legendary comedies - THE JERK, CADDYSHACK, AIRPLANE - it just keeps getting funnier every time you watch it while some other quotable comedies from the 2000s (ahem, NAPOLEON DYNAMITE) eventually fizzle out. I love lamp. I really do. --Mike Sampson


7. KILL BILL, VOLUME I

We had waited 6 years after JACKIE BROWN for Quentin Tarantino’s next cinematic creation and needless to say, we were as stoked as stoked could be when KILL BILL: VOLUME I finally hit screens in 2003. Well, even though we ourselves had overhyped the shit out of the film -- and some thought that Tarantino had lost his touch -- KILL BILL turned out to be yet another awesome addition to Tarantino’s growing repertoire of awesomeness, and one which could be described in many ways, but as per my original review, how about these to start: “fun, inventive, exciting, ballsy, violent, entertaining, stylized and brilliant.” Tarantino had apparently said at the time that the film is probably one that “Clarence from TRUE ROMANCE would love to see”, and I couldn’t agree more. If you’re a big fan of movies, as we are on this website…you really can’t go wrong with KILL BILL: VOLUME I. Good times. --JoBlo


6. ETERNAL SUNSHINE OF THE SPOTLESS MIND

ETERNAL SUNSHINE OF THE SPOTLESS MIND is absolutely one of the most powerful and touching films about relationships I have ever seen. This story of a man looking to forget what he once loved is utterly complex, yet it still presents the love story as something entirely human, bruises and all. This is not your everyday romantic comedy/drama. It is far more potent and heartbreaking. This inspired script, written by Charlie Kaufman, is simply brilliant in its exploration of love and the power to forget. And it is certainly helped by the outstanding performance by Kate Winslet as Clementine. Michel Gondry's cinematic masterpiece is not only a fantastic script, it is also a visual feast, shot with skill yet not once does it feel like style over substance. This is a wonderful film which also happens to be fiercely original and extremely imaginative, it even has the kitchen sink thrown in for good measure. A truly beautiful experience that happens to be one of the best love stories ever told. --JimmyO


5. ALMOST FAMOUS

Cameron Crowe’s masterpiece, this is a fictionalized look at his formative years spent as a teenaged rock journalist for Rolling Stone. It’s obvious that Crowe looks back at this time in his life with nothing but joy, and that feeling is contagious. It’s truly a beautiful and bittersweet look back at an era that, arguably, was rock’s last great hurrah. We’re lucky that a guy like Crowe was around to soak it all in. And with the UNTITLED director’s cut of the film; this is one of the few times where I would advocate skipping the extended version. The theatrical version is a much leaner film, and more effective film. Crowe is the most soulful director working in American film, and, God willing, he’ll put ELIZABETHTOWN behind him, and get back to doing the type of films he does best. --Chris Bumbray


4. CHILDREN OF MEN

I had no idea what I was getting myself into when I saw CHILDREN OF MEN in theaters. I figured it would be a cool, futuristic, Clive Owen action flick- I had no idea it would be a bloody masterpiece, and my choice for best film of the decade. Everything about this film is perfect. The direction, the music, the acting, and the script- not a single misstep is made. And those single shot sequences- my god! The ambush on the country road sequence alone would make this film a classic… The fact CHILDREN OF MEN was largely ignored at Oscar time, goes to prove just how stodgy, and out of touch the academy is. It’s a modern classic, and one that I believe will stand the test of time. --Chris Bumbray


3. THE INCREDIBLES

Pixar and Brad Bird did the unthinkable when they created their own family of superheroes and marched them straight down the middle of an already flooded market. What's more is how easily they perfected every aspect of the genre. There was the proud reliability of Superman, the sympathetic real-life drama of Spider-Man, and the underground audacity of the Batman all rolled together and delivered by one of the finest voice casts ever assembled. In a decade defined by the uprising of animation, none were more Super. --Jim Law


2. SHAUN OF THE DEAD

SHAUN OF THE DEAD is a classic zombie film. While it manages to be very funny, it also adds a bit of suspense, human drama and a couple of gory zombie kills. There are so many unforgettable moments scattered throughout. From deciding which records should be used as a weapon, to the brilliant sequence inside a pub that even manages to bring a tear or two. Edgar Wright created something truly special while paying homage to all the undead movies that came before. While the humor is incredibly satisfying, it really is much more than that. This is truly one of the most inspired comedies that manages to entertain and even get quite bloody thanks to a little tribute to George Romero's DAY OF THE DEAD. Shaun is a wonderfully inventive bit of cinema that to this day, continues to inspire. --JimmyO


1. THE LORD OF THE RINGS TRILOGY

Not only are all three movies on the list, but I have to say, hands down, these are my personal favorite of all time. Hell, I'm a sci-fi/fantasy geek. How could I not love them? (And before you ask, I didn't learn Elvish...but I thought about it.) I'm such a giant dork that I re-read the books before each film, said, “You shall not pass!” to people in hallways and almost...almost bought one of those replica swords from that catalogue that mysteriously shows up at my house around the holidays. Frodo lives! --Jenna Busch


Extra Tidbit: JoBlo's own personal top 10 of the decade went like this: 1. MINORITY REPORT 2. UNBREAKABLE 3. THE INCREDIBLES 4. PAN'S LABYRINTH 5. KILL BILL: VOLUME I 6. ANCHORMAN 7. BATMAN BEGINS 8. THE NINTH GATE 9. AMERICAN PSYCHO 10. X-MEN 2 (Runners up included A.I. ALMOST FAMOUS, CAST AWAY, MEET THE PARENTS, MATCHSTICK MEN, MONSTERS INC, RULES OF ATTRACTION, SPIDER-MAN, V FOR VENDETTA).

Haha

Anchorman one of the finest of the last decade? Maybe a top 10 comedy at best. Dark Knight, Hurt Locker, Let the Right One In....

Where do we say these our the "finest" movies from the past decade?

It's our FAVORITE MOVIES from the past decade. This isn't oscars.com. This isn't the Cannes Film Festival. We're MOVIE FANS and these are our FAVORITE MOVIES from the past 10 years.

If THE HURT LOCKER is one of your 10 "favorite" movies from the past 10 years, more power to you.

My favorites are flicks I like to watch over and over again...

The Incredibles?

How would The Incredibles make any list? I guess I just don't count any animated movie as a "Best" accept for in an "Animated" Category. Someone said Matrix Reloaded too....Now thats just ridiculous.... Best movie of the decade......I'd probably have to vote Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. For real. How genius of a movie.

You have 2 movies in your list that are on our list, and yet you keep claiming that our list is "as awful as they get". Whatevs, dude. FOUNTAIN

mysterious skin has to be one of the most horrifically misleading and awful movie experiences i've ever had. I've never been so uncomfortable watching a movie that's premise on the DVD has nothing to do with Gordon-Levitt getting butt-raped by old men for money. HORRIBLE!!!!

My opinion is ....

I agree with JimmyO on Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind, that film changed the way i see movies forever.
And nice to see so many of my favourites on JoBlo's list (Minority Report,Unbreakable,Pan's Labyrinth,Batman Begins (better than The Dark Knight in my opinion),The Ninth Gate,and Cast Away.
And don't get me started on the so called "Academy", how can there be no Best Comedy,Best Comedic Actor/Actress category? im done watching the Oscars.
By the way HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL

TRAFFIC was one of your favorite top 10 movies from the past decade? Huh, okay. Not sure that makes our list a "sham" though, especially since it's OUR LIST and obviously doesn't reflect YOUR opinion, but ours... :)

A.I. as bad as Indy IV

The ending to A.I. was as bad as the ending to Indy IV. A.I. was a decent movie, and had what I thought was a great--albeit sad--ending...then it kept going. What is it with Spielberg and aliens in the 00's? (Dishonorable mention: Lucas' Jar-Jar.)

Hmm. I have to say that's a disappointing list.

There are so many far superior movies over the last decade. That No Country For Old Men is not on your list anywhere is astonishing. The only movie that comes close to being on my top ten would be The Incredibles.

Good to see some love for Batman Begins. People seem to forget how Nolan spawned a whole new wave of movie making that decade the darker, grittier re-boot phenomenon.

broomstick54 WHY AVATAR IS THE BEST MOVIE EVER

I liked your answer but remember it was you first to go against my opinion i only defended my point of view and my favorite movie because i love movies in an unreal way like i was actually there and AVATAR showed me the closest thing i ever saw of perfection. To me how they fall in love its perfect she is a blue CGI thing lol but to me neytiri caracther its like perfection in a women then we have Pandora the most beautifull place my eyes witnesses in any movie or in real life, the waterfalls

To me how they fall in love its perfect she is a blue CGI thing lol but to me neytiri caracther its like perfection in a women then we have Pandora the most beautifull place my eyes witnesses in any movie or in real life, the waterfalls the trees the animals the glowing things at night you have no idea how my mind was being blown away with all of that. joke all you want with me but i had tears in my eyes not with the sad parts but yes with the beauty of Pandora and the love between them. as for action we have an amazing villain to me Ledger Joker will always be king but the guy that plays Lang is really a badass and to me this movie also has the most epic battle of all times the last 20 minutes are nothing short of WOWWWW, and of course i also have to talk of the soundtrack jesus christ its beautifulll the part were she flyes the dragon for the first time with that music and Pandora beauty is to me better then many movies in its total also for wen they kiss as also wen the seeds of the tree all land on JAKE so this is why this movie represents so much to me its the way i defend it people who love Titanic might say it won 11 Oscars and only LOTR and BEN HUR also did in all history its an impossible argument with no ending but still a passionate one. ;P

Okay. I'm sorry. I suppose I'm going to offend no matter what my intentions, but I think it's the height of pretension to list films by their foreign titles only. Definitely list them, but include the title under which they were released domestically, as well.

Infernal Affairs is Infinitely Better

For those of you who have "The Departed" on your list, the original Asian film, "Infernal Affairs," on which Departed was based, was infinitely better, and was released in 2002.

I love "Infernal Affairs", it's an excellent, quick paced action film, but that's all it is. I strongly believe that "The Departed" is that rare breed of a remake, that is not only actually well done, but supersedes the original in all ways and becomes it's own entity.

Where's Team America: World Police?

LOTR, Shaun, and Eternal Sunshine were instant classics, but the other ones, while awesome, are not among the top 10 in my book, but I really loved Pan's Labyrinth. Children of Men, if you took out Michael Caine and that one super-long, super-awesome scene, would not be as good of a movie, at least not in the top 10. Just my humble opinion.

Hmm.

I have to disagree with Once. From a music sense, yes it's good, and the performances are believable. But does it deserve to be in a list of best films in the last 10 years? I seriously doubt that.

And why are films like The Mist, Iron Man, The Dark Knight, X2 (which is still the best comicbook film ever) and Tropic Thunder not here?

I agree with almost everything else though.

Anchorman deserves a spot

I personally think that Anchorman was the decade's best comedy. It was completely silly, ridiculous, and cheesy - in a word, great. Great lines, memorable characters and it makes me laugh to this day, something I can't say for most other comedies this decade.

I'm not the biggest fan of the Ferrell, but I can understand why they'd put Anchorman on the list. It's more of an attempt to mix it up genre-wise (hence the inclusion of The Incredibles for the animation category).

As for The Dark Knight complaints, I agree. This decade was HUGE for superhero flicks as a significant trend, and to disregard The Dark Knight as not only the hands-down best of this category but also as a film that should be taken seriously on its own merits is a bit of a

darkvampire it's just my opinion ...

You can think all you want that Avatar is the greatest movie ever made, and you are more than welcome to do so. But it is my opinion that this film is probably an 8 out of 10. I am not saying the movie sucks, I just don't think it's the greatest movie ever made. I would much rather watch the first Matrix movie again and again before I would watch Avatar ... I would watch Goodfella's over and over again before I would watch Avatar. You say to open my mind ... maybe you should go see some

You say to open my mind ... maybe you should go see some more quality films before you proclaim Avatar as the next Citizen Kane. I do think it is a ground breaking film, and I thought it was entertaining, but I judge films on much more than that. I would never anoint a film that just came out, with a very basic plotline to other films, as the greatest movie ever made. I am happy for you, and the millions of people out there who love Avatar, there were also people who thought Titanic was the greatest movie ever made. Sorry, wrong. The point is it is near impossible to tab 1 film as the greatest ever. OPEN YOUR MIND TO OTHER FILMS THAT MAY HAVE BEEN MADE BEFORE YOU WERE BORN!

Apart from Anchorman (?) you have a good list.
My top three:
1. Osama (It's about a girl - not about you know who)
2. City of God
3. Once
Enjoy watching them. They are works of art and devastating. Two will make you despair for humanity and the third will restore your faith in it.
They are the very best of the decade. All were low-budget, all are passionate in the telling of the tale and true to realities of life.

I love the love for Shaun of The Dead, Pan's Labyrinth and Children of Men. I also dig The Incredibles, even if it's not my #1 favorite Pixar (That honor goes to Wall-E)

Once? Really?

I understand the love for Pan's Labyrinth, not one of my favorites. I loved The Incredibles but feel their recent films (Up, Wall•E, Ratatouille) were way better. But Once??? It's a nice little film, but top 10 of the decade??? I usually can go with the "entitled to your own opinion" front on these things, but that's a pretty random choice. To each his own, so...

1. Zodiac
2. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
3. There Will Be Blood
4. Punch-Drunk Love
5. Almost Famous
6. The Hurt

not a bad list

so hard to get these decade-long lists to be right, especially when limited to 10 choices ... but i agree with several, namely incredibles and eternal sunshine, but also children of men and shaun...

and looking at others' comments, I agree tdk deserves a spot

Couldn't agree more with The Lord of the Rings trilogy.. it's an instant classic that's easily the best trilogy of all-time. (You can't include Indy or Star Wars since they're not trilogies anymore). This was the trilogy of our generation.. pretty cool.

Avatar ... Really???

Anyone who thinks Avatar is the greatest movie of all time is surely joking. It's Dances with Wolves, just with Aliens. It's the exact same plot line. A good movie, but doesn't belong on any top 10 lists of the decade. I would add Dark Knight, The Hangover, Slumdog Millionaire, Iron Man, and a slew of movies. Bottom line is if you really love films, it's almost impossible to only pick 10 from an entire decade without upseting someone. But Avatar is average at best.

Avatar was a good movie.. I wouldn't say it's average but it's nowhere near a masterpiece let alone tops of the decade. But Slumdog Millionare?! Really?! What did you see in that besides a generic forced love story?

Hmmm...

I have nothing against the list. Great choices actually, but I (like most) feel a bit robbed with the fact that the Dark Knight isn't on the list... the masterpiece of all masterpieces... and we all know you guys think so. Just wondering why it didn't make the cut???? Others that I feel COULD have been on the list (or close runner ups) include;
Up
Finding Nemo
Crash
Memento

P.S. I completely agree with the #1 choice

Not Too Terrible But...

how in the hell did the second dumbest movie of the decade make it on this list? "Anchorman" was not funny or interesting. Also, I hated, loathed, and despised with fiber of my being "Pan's Labyrinth", and didn't care for "LOTR" trilogy, but I get why they'd be on this list. I do mean this with all due respect, and with that, here's mine:
10. Shaun Of The Dead (2004)
9. Inglorious Basterds (2009)
8. Repo! The Genetic Opera (2008)
7. The Fall (2008)
6. Wall-E (2008)
5. Moulin Rouge

It's not my fault that almost everyone (I have one friend who agrees with me) does not understand what that movie is truly about, and were looking for a horror film in a romantic drama.

People don't have to agree with me, but I just don't get how everyone is soo easily suckered into liking such trite crap (very recent example being the horrid "Precious")

Ugh. Once

I don't want to be rude, but I want to say how much a truly dislike the movie Once. One of the most pretentious and boring movies I've ever seen. I'm an indie film fan but that was just full of itself. Not many movies make me as angry as that does. It's up there with Gummo and the Idiots for me.

The rest of the list I can live with. Great choices in a lot of cases.

I dunno that I'dve had everything on there that's on there personally, but it's pretty faultless in that I can see WHY someone would put all those films there - they are all great films. Also, many many many bonus marks for putting Almost Famous on that list, as it would probably have been my personal number 1 :)

It's a fairly solid list, aside from a one or two exceptions.
I did love The Incredibles, and I think Pixar rightfully deserves it's place among the top, but I think The Incredibles made it simply because we're in the midst of such a huge superhero movie revival. I think that Wall-E deserves The Incredibles' spot.

Pretty good list

Love the additions of 'Once', 'Eternal Sunshine', and 'Shaun of the Dead'. And while I'm probably the only person in the world that doesn't love LOTR, I'll accept it as a groundbreaking achievement. The fact remains though, I never cared. I'm just not really a fan of fantasy, Elijah Wood, Sean Astin (hated 'Rudy'), or Orlando Bloom.

But here's what my "sort of" ordered top ten:

1. The Dark Knight
2. Inglourious Basterds
3. There Will Be Blood

This list is concentrated too much in two or three years (2006, 2003 and 2004 mostly) its not diverse at all. It barely shows what happened in film this decade. Kinda disapointed. Here's mine.

3.)The Dark Knight (2008)

Decent list

But I'm a little disappointed "Once" was the only film from 2007 to make the cut. Perhaps it's the most deserving of the lot, but that was a year of serious classics.

But kudos for omitting the comic book movies ("The Incredibles" is better than any of 'em).

For me Once was the best film of the decade and I am so glad to see it on this list. One of the most beautiful movies ever made. I also have to disagree about Almost Famous. I personally prefer the director's cut to the theatrical cut. Am I in the minority on this?. And it is so nice to see The Dark Knight not on this list because other than Ledger's performance, it was really just a better than average superhero movie.

7- The Prestige

that's a solid list dude... I'm a big fan of Vanilla sky, despite some of it's flaws. I love almost everything you points out except The Prestige (which I still liked), and I have yet to see Chopper. Coolio!

2.Children of Men
3.Dark Knight
4.Almost Famous
5. 25th Hour
6. Adaptation
7.Pan's Labyrinth
8.Once
9.Unbreakable
Tied for 10. Shaun of the Dead/Wall-E/The Departed

That's a nice list. Great to see LOTR on #1. I would take out #2, #3, #7, #8, #10, and probably replace them with (in no specific order): "The Dark Knight", "A.I.", "Moulin Rouge", "Garden State", "The Last Samurai".

Come to think of it, a top 10 is too short of a list to put so amazing movies this decade... there are many more that also belong on that list...

I luv luuuuv TDK and Last Samurai, but sadly they don't belong to the greatest movie list.
