Top Ten Best Movies of the 21st Centuryaman28
The Top Ten
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.
I thought good movies were in the past, until I see this one
Never seen so many plots overlapping each other, n finally each every plot superimposed each other to give us great climax
Awesome movie and the joker in this movie is awesomeV 37 Comments
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.
A legendary epic, The Dark Knight was great but Return of the King was a benchmark in history.
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. - TheSudhanva
It should be at number 1.. Dark knight is not even close to it...V 48 Comments
I have watched this movie over and over again.
This is a awesome movie, make it higher! - micahisthebest
Bombed it the is should be number 1

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
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. - Jammer196
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.
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. - MrveteranV 14 Comments
4th? definitely higher than this!
Great cast great plot great director
Should be 2nd, this movie had Jack Nicholson one of the best actors of all time time.
Insane, character driven castV 4 Comments
Really? A generic story, characters and pacing make this extremely overrated. Crowe's phoned in performance didn't deserve the Oscar while the action is good, but would have impact if the audience actually cared for what happened. - Mrveteran
Hell on earth was not number 1 on the list it's a work of art and for the love of god way twilight number 5. Twilight sucks people
Really! Twilight is above gladiator?! One of the best movies, watched it like ten times and still not bored.
Best movie of the century only behind the dark Knight and may be inceptionV 6 Comments
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...
It's a well planned movie. Nice settled and very thrilling.
Why do movie critics hate this film - Harri666
I like davy jhones... faadu characterV 6 Comments
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.
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.V 1 Comment
You have no idea how brilliant this movie is unless you've seen it. Go fo it - I call it Human Terminator - Part I. - redgedawson
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?
Scariest non horror movie ever made in my opinion
How is Human Centipede and Pirates of the Caribbean above this?V 1 Comment
I didn't like the ending
How is a film with wooden lead performances, plot holes abound and a lack of suspense one of the best films of this century? Shows how much our standards our slipping, me thinks. - Mrveteran
These are all superhero fanboys voting these I mean seriously half of the top ten are fanboy movies!
Hunger games catching fire is way better than the dark night

Film technology's leading edge. THIS movie makes me a CGI-man finally. AWESOME story.
Let's go blue people! (No offense if I hurt somebody feeling or something)
28? Definitely should be higher.
Best SF movie since Blade Runner.V 1 Comment
NO I thought I'd vote no!
Best love story ever!
Amazing movie. It teaches people who don't know how to love, how to love. etc...V 5 Comments
How is this not number 1? And how are there no other Tarantino films in the top 10?
My friend watched the movie, he suggested that I call him Django Freemen
Definitely the best movie I've ever seen, chrisoph waltz plays king schultz amazingly and you have no chice but to love him!
Jamie foxx! Name's enoughV 2 Comments
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
Worst movie ever
Amazing actor.. Daniel Day Lewis's performance is brilliant It takes a talented person to make a great film, but it takes an even more talented one to know when to say enough is enough. This is a film by Paul Thomas Anderson that has overshot the runway of movie modernity with something thrillingly, dangerously new...
Besides Mulholland Dr. , this is the best film of the decade. It is a great epic and a great masterpiece with an amazing performance by Day-Lewis. Anderson's seminal film, and one of the best ever made, probably in the top ten and even the top five.
For me, this IS the best film of the 21st century, which deserves a spot in the top 5 on this list. It's ahead of other modern masterpieces like The Dark Knight, the Lord of the Rings Trilogy, No Country for Old Men, Nightcrawler, etc.
Triple Oscar winning actor Daniel Day-lewis puts in an exceptional performance in this mind-blowing thriller.
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.
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.,
Most original movie since "Fargo" -
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. - Mrveteran
This movie is intriguing and always in suspense
I love it
