Favourite Movie From Each Year Of The 2000s

2006 and the directors involved is crazy.

I went with The Departed(Scorsese), but geez it batted deep.

The Prestige - Nolan
Children of Men - Alfonso Cauron
The Fountain - Arronofsky
Pans Labrynth - Guillermo Del Torro
Babel - Alejandro Gonzalez Innaritu
A scanner Darkly - Richard Linklatter

Nearly all my favourite directors made a movie that year.


kung fu panda > the dark knight

trying to pick a favourite movie from 2007 is gonna be hard, one of the greatest years ever for film.

Nowhere near it IMO. They are all good entertaining movies but dark Knight was carried 100% by Ledger.

I am not a Nolan fan but even I can see the genius of that movie.

Just the opening scene alone any director would be proud of but it is scene after amazing scene.

It is a masterpiece.

No way. Ledger was top notch, but the story was insanely good. Action top notch. Acting from everyone.

Plus it had the best magic trick ever put on film

2008 Gran Torino (Hurt Locker, Zack and Miri…, Forgetting Sarah Marshall)

2009 Inglourious Basterds (Hangover, The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, Up in the Air)


Was it though? I reckon the fist Nolan Batman had a better story. I watched Dark Knight again recently and it all felt a bit… pointless?

I do agree though that the magic trick scene is awesome.

Fair enough. I just get frustrated when people say it was only a good movie becuase of ledger. I do think a Batman Begins is so underrated, great Batman film

Rumours getting around that the district 9 sequel will be going into production this year with the same director.

I prefer Hugo Blick would have been amazing…Did you ever dance with the devil in the pale moonlight?
Best line of all the Batman movies.

Wow a sequel.

District 9, kept thinking through the movie, why am I watching this crap, yet when it finished I had enjoyed it.

So bad, it was good. :slightly_smiling_face:. Looking forward to the sequel.

I hope there’s not a sequel.
District 9 had things to say and it said them very well.
I can’t imagine another film being more than just a story tacked onto an already created universe.
