I figure if there's going to be a music one... there should be one for movies... I'll be back with my picks.

If there is already one... my apologies... I didn't see one in the search

I didn't watch the Jason Bourne series until 2007 and I really liked them... I don't remember why I didn't watch it when it came out

Pan's Labyrinth and Donnie Darko are good but creepy :lol: I have Pan's Labyrinth and I haven't opened it yet... I think I gave it to my sister haha

so you got this girlfriend and she wants to watch a romantic movie with you? what to do? if ending the relationship is not what you have in mind,
...
propose this one to her, it's pretty good and about much more than a cheesy love story

There's too many to name, but to name a few-Blood Diamond, Road to Perdition, Spirited Away, Last King of Scotland, Training Day, Snatch and Half Nelson.

love that movie. so. much. i enjoyed pretty much all studio ghibli movies i've seen so far.

Lord of the Rings Trilogy:


definitely! a lot of people name the first one as their favourite, but i think the third may be my favourite, though i probably quote the second the most.

plus, despite loving the movies, i really enjoy making fun of the ~srs bsns~ going on in lotr.

The Incredibles
Finding Nemo
Chicken Little

Kingdom of Heaven: Director's Cut
Blood Diamond
Up

i :hearts: pixar. finding nemo and up are definitely among my top five pixar movies.

also:

wall-e
monsters, inc.
ponyo
howl's moving castle

and as far as live-action goes :p...

the dark knight
harry potter series
billy elliot

and a bunch of others that i can't come up with right now.

titanic.

earlier

loved the 10th Kingdom when i saw it first, although I'm usually not that much into fantasy stuff like Lord of the Rings or Narnia

10th kingdom wasn't in cinema though, but a mini series of 5 parts made for television, lasting a total of 7 hours

didn't include any big stars (Dianne Wiest probably the most famous one), but a solid cast, including Ed "Al Bundy" O'Neill, who as king of the troll kingdom is great stuff :lol:

A Walk to Remember

:sobbing:

another movie so good i can't watch it because of the crying.

It's one of the only movies that does make me cry.. and I cry like a baby EVERY time :sobbing:

I remember they put it on the TV on a long bus trip to Brisbane some years back when I was travelling with my dad and even HE started crying - I'd never imagined my dad crying at a movie until then :lol:

I love "Memento" by Christopher Nolan too, and it is my favorite movie of the decade too, as many have already stated.

Two of my favorite movies that haven't been mentioned yet ended up being from 1999. :banghead::banghead::banghead:

I'm going to post these two nonetheless because they we're so close to being in this decade and had such an impact, and both feature some of the best trailers I've ever seen.

Being John Malkovich (1999)

being john malkovich transcends through boundaries. great film like this wouldn't be made in this decade, also 1999 produced most of my favourite films. anyways keeping on subject.. some of the films that i did enjoy from 2000 onwards that haven't been listed yet.

thank you for smoking (dark comedy very unique storyline)
