Top Ten Best Movies of the 21st Century

The Top Ten

1 The Dark Knight The Dark Knight Product Image

This movie definitely has the most evil villain you can imagine - this guy is crazy. No, actually he isn't: The Joker is nothing more than a bank robber and assassin, but the best one ever "created". Late Heath Ledger justly won his Oscar for the best supporting actor. This movie has the best and most twisted story I know, in which the good guys turn bad and prisoners become heroes. The Batman himself is the Dark Knight who saves lives without anyone saying thank you. This movie shows an unbelievable character development and is just perfect.

Every time I watch this it feels like there is a new story in it... We can watch from various perspectives as well, 1) Batman (of course) 2) Bruce 3)2face 4) joker 5) gordon and 6) rachel... All are awesome stories brought together by a wonderful storyteller.

Unquestionably the definitive realistic cinematic motion picture yet made in this Century. It is dark,unforgettable,iconic and an A-list cast that give their best with ledger shining brighter than all. It is simply and purely a Modern Day Masterpiece. Bravo Nolan.

Just an epic movie which is dark as well as with a great moral. Not to forget this the the only movie which is of the 21st century I the best movies list. Also the joker is the most inspiring awesome villain EVER IN HISTORY.

2 The Lord of the Rings - The Return of the King The Lord of the Rings - The Return of the King Product Image

It's unfair to split the Lord of the Rings because Tolkien meant for it to be all one book. And the movies too should truly be considered one massive film, which if it were the case, would EASILY top this list.

Nevertheless, LOTR: ROTK deserves to be #1. Dark Knight is fantastic, and I absolutely love it, but nothing beats the Return of the King.

There was a reason it clean-sweeped the Oscars.

Surprised that even when so much had to be covered in so less time - and the movie did last long for more than 3 hours - it still lived up to the high standards of the book. Skillfully made and aptly directed. The actors too have executed their task well.

Dark Knight is overrated (pretty good but overpraised thanks to the nerds), and I cannot believe that Avengers, Twilight and Hunger Games are on this list. This list is laughable, where are Tree of Life and Mulholland Drive?

I think this movie is a really good movie but it had its problems. The biggest problem in my opinion is the why the ghost army did not go and destroy all the orcs in mordor but besides
That this is a great movie

3 Inception Inception Product Image

People, are you serious? There's no way how any one of they movies are better than inception... Perfect shot... Best storyline I've ever seen... Great acting... Amazing action... Just a perfect movie... It was as interesting as it was confusing but in this movie it is a good thing

Inception is my favorite movie of all time. The Dark Knight is amazing, but the originality of Inception, as well as the best ending scenes of any movie ever, makes it slightly better in my opinion.

I love all the movies above this, but this is my favorite movie. Full of action, but revolved around story. Amazing character development. Even more amazing movie overall.

Really? A pretty good action movie with a decent (if not entirely original) story which is very good, but overhyped to extremes because of the cult of Christopher Nolan.

4 The Avengers The Avengers Product Image

This is my 5th Favorite Movie. Madagascar is Number 4, Alvin and The Chipmunks are Number 3, Wreck it Ralph is Number 2, and Diary of a Wimpy Kid is Number 1.

I have watched this movie over and over again.

This is a awesome movie, make it higher!

Best superhero movie of all time

5 The Departed The Departed Product Image

Should be 2nd, this movie had Jack Nicholson one of the best actors of all time time.

Insane, character driven cast

Hell yeah,it's a great movie with great cast

Best work by martin scorcese. all characters did amazing job. leo nardo is best actor

6 Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens

Best movie of the century definitely.

Best star wars movie EVER!

7 Pan's Labyrinth Pan's Labyrinth Product Image

Gruesome, magical, horrifying, hopeful... There are a plethora of words that could be used to describe this film. The best films have comedy in the mix, but that would ruin this masterpiece. From the very outset, you are in tune with the feelings of this girl as she tries to make her way in hard times and even harder places.

Finally a good movie on this list

this might be in spanish but you can't pull your eyes from the screen. its a bit bloody but still childish enough to not be considered horror. its an adult fairy tail and has such a good story line.

8 The Hunger Games: Catching Fire The Hunger Games: Catching Fire Product Image

Hunger games catching fire is way better than the dark night

10 out of 10

amazing

Really?! This is the best move that ever existed and if you can't see that you are stupid just stupid stupid stupid. This is far better than The dick knight rises garbage.

9 No Country for Old Men No Country for Old Men Product Image

Perhaps the best movie ever! Should be at the very top of this list. This is no "kids" movie like the bat man stuff--I mean come on, are you kidding me?

You have no idea how brilliant this movie is unless you've seen it. Go fo it - I call it Human Terminator - Part I.

How is Human Centipede and Pirates of the Caribbean above this?

Scariest non horror movie ever made in my opinion

10 Transformers Transformers Product Image

Transformers is my favourite movie of all time. And the fact that they play my favourite song, Linkin Park's What I've Done, in it makes it even better

The Contenders

11 Spirited Away Spirited Away Product Image

Watch this movie and your mind will not return to you for hours afterwards.

The best movie ever I mean it was revolutionary

Never got tired of watching this

This movie is like the centre of my anime love.😍

12 Pirates of the Caribbean - Dead Man's Chest Pirates of the Caribbean - Dead Man's Chest Product Image

A good mix of action adventure and comedy. A stellar cast including Johnny Depp, Orlando Bloom and Keira Knightley all in a well written plot. Defiantly a franchise favourite...

Quite the thriller. May not be the absolute best but definitely one of them.
Interesting to see twilight here. Cannot imagine who would call it good acting though.

I watched it with my dad when it first came out when I was around maybe five.

It's a well planned movie. Nice settled and very thrilling.

13 Django Unchained Django Unchained Product Image

How is this not number 1? And how are there no other Tarantino films in the top 10?

Definitely the best movie I've ever seen, chrisoph waltz plays king schultz amazingly and you have no chice but to love him!

My friend watched the movie, he suggested that I call him Django Freemen

Jamie foxx! Name's enough

14 Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind Product Image

If there's one movie that realistically delves in this relationship business, it's the eternal sunshine of the spotless mind. Beautiful, poetic, subtle and moving. This is the "Inception" of chic flicks or any other romantic movie

After watching this, there is a sunshine in my life.,

Best romantic movie ever released. Period!

Most original movie since "Fargo"

15 The Human Centipede II, Full Sequence The Human Centipede II, Full Sequence Product Image

Best movie ever in history.

11? They are better movies

Sexiest. Movie. Ever.

I love this movie

16 Moonlight Moonlight Product Image

This is no question the best movie of the 21st Century, it is absolutely perfect in every way and ticks off every box on what makes a great film.

17 City of God City of God Product Image

Just a brilliant film

18 Inglourious Basterds Inglourious Basterds Product Image

Proof that Quentin Tarantino movies never get old, because no body gets sick of bloody violence and cursing.

Hitler gets shot in the face and Brad Pitt speaks in a hilarious accent. What else could you possibly want?

The greatest cast and director for a movie

This and ALL the Christopher Nolan films - Memento, Inception, The Prestige, The Dark Knight and Batman Begins

19 Pacific Rim Pacific Rim Product Image

So sad, all the jaegers died

20 Boyhood Boyhood Product Image
21 Avatar Avatar Product Image

Let's go blue people! (No offense if I hurt somebody feeling or something)

Avatar is the one of the best movie in the 21st century

28? Definitely should be higher.

Best SF movie since Blade Runner.

22 In the Mood for Love In the Mood for Love Product Image
23 The Lord of the Rings - The Fellowship of the Ring The Lord of the Rings - The Fellowship of the Ring Product Image
24 Toy Story 3 Toy Story 3 Product Image

I love it, but Toy Story 2 is better.

25 The Maze Runner The Maze Runner Product Image

So awful, it's good. That being said, the idea that this is one of the best films of the 21st century is stretching it, I have to say.

This movie is intriguing and always in suspense
I love it

Its awesome
