Best Movies of the 2000s

The best masterpieces from the first decade of the millennium.

The Top Ten

1 The Lord Of The Rings : The Return of the King

The last part of of the genius Lord Of The Rings trilogy is a true lasting legacy in story telling and now cinema. Bravo Peter Jackson. - MatrixGuy

What an Epic Movie! If you haven't watched this, you are missing out!

Masterpiece! The dark knight and harry potter were garbage compare with this

Garbage movie. People watch this? This movie is like 5 hours and is so poorly paced. Most boring movie ever

2 The Dark Knight

Someone please explain to me why Twilight is up there? Too many 10 year old girls are voting here. The Dark Knight was amazing, and Heath won an oscar for his preformance. Twilight will never be nominated for anything because it is so lacking in every respect!

It's only behind good bad ugly and godfather 1 direction is great story is greater pace music start finish all are great and the best performance in cinema by ledger a movie that never bore you and never get old and in near future will gain the credit it deserves

Batman sucks. The joker is all the story here and come on, two face died after ten minutes of screen time. Alfred can get on your nerves telling master bruce to not be batman but when it's going down he should be batman. Alfred never wanted bruce to be batman but that didn't mean he shunned him or brought it up every two seconds. Heath ledger was awesome but I hate Christian bale as batman.

Vote for Dark Knight but not Man Of Steel

3 The Lord Of The Rings : The Fellowship of the Ring

The beginning of The Lord Of The Rings started the adventure of the decade - MatrixGuy

Truthfully the best in the series, return is excellent and towers is a bit long but this one is the most intresting with characters and story. Plus someone dies so that's always a lot more epic.


4 There Will Be Blood

Brilliant. Paul Thomas Anderson's masterpiece to say the least. - beasthound

5 The Lord Of The Rings : The Two Towers

The second movie of the trilogy ,The Two Towers beggins to bring the hope of good triumphing over evil - MatrixGuy

It had highest rating in all three yet ranked lowest


6 Gladiator

The second best movie of decade the best epic historical and one of the bests ever

Best historical epic ever made

7 The Departed

The fact that twilight is ranked ahead of this movie is an outrage. The departed is one of the greatest movies of all time made by one of the greatest directors of all time. An amazing story with great acting and an all-star cast. Ten year old girl need to stop voting. The departed needs to be at least in the top 5

8 No Country for Old Men
9 Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith

It was the most worst end for the good side ,Anakin Skywalker turning into Darth Vader but I think this is the best Star Wars movie - MatrixGuy

How the hell is this outstanding movie below Transformers?!

Excellent opening but falls short. It's a good movie but that's all it is. there are excellent action scenes and definitely the best lightsaber fight in the entire series, maybe in even all of film. Despite its mediocreness Grievous is cool the emperor looks like frying poop, and Anakin and Obi Wan, you really feel for in this movie.

Best movie of the 2000s

10 Inglourious Basterds

Third best Tarantino film. Can stand close to kill bill and pulp fiction. Has some of the coolest characters and a cool story. SPOILER-(No joke) Hitler gets shot in the face.

The Newcomers

? The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie
? The Machinist

The Contenders

11 Finding Nemo

One of the most beautiful animation movies ever - MatrixGuy

Second best animated movie

12 Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

Not just the best romantic film... It may well be the best film of the last decade..
Amazing performances by Jim carrey and kate...
Once in a lifetime script and as brilliant an execution...
But most importantly, the movie just feels so personal...
"I could die right now, Clem. I'm just... Happy. I've never felt that before. I'm just exactly where I want to be"

How the hell did transformers get to the top ten I swear people need to watch better movies. - Justintime221

Awesome effects and fights! Same Stuff but it's Still Satisfying.

14 American Psycho

Crazy, sophistacated, the dark side of the bright side. Patrick Bateman is freaky in a way only Christian Bale (or tom cruise who he based his acting for the character off of) could play.

15 Transformers

a great high budget teen style action movie, one of Michael Bay greatest movies - MatrixGuy

This movie sucks. Michael bay ruined people's childhoods.

This movie is underrated!

16 Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

a great piece of the Harry Potter movies - MatrixGuy

17 Cast Away
18 City Of God

One of the most powerful movies ever made

Interests you from begining to end. many different characters, and the villain is one that you want dead as soon as you meet him, he's cruel and you want him to get whats coming to him in the end. Very emotional as well.

19 Spider-Man

This movie rocks! I love the plot. The actors are great. The effects are awesome and the ending goes well with whats to come in the next spiderman movie.

"With great power comes great responsibility"
Well the movie made his expectations in every way
Thank's Sam Raimi - MatrixGuy

These to me are the only Spider-Man movies.The new ones suck, and hello!, Mary Jane is a redhead! - westofohio

Great villain, cinematography, story. This movie kicks some superhero butt. plus this and x-men set the standard for most superhero movies (besides batman and superman of course)
