High Fidelity, LOTR, Amelie, Igby Goes Down are my picks. Disappointing decade in film for me.

How many are we allowed to nominate?

Also, shouldn't it end at 2009? 2010 isn't technically an "aught", and 2000-2010 is eleven years.

Put me down for that one as well. A little over the top, but great.

I'm going to second UP, WALL-E, and High Fidelity.

I'd also like to nominate The Hangover, Finding Nemo, Anchorman, and Shaun of the Dead.

Edit: Also True Grit even though it isn't the John Wayne version it was still pretty fantastic.

Here are the wikis for the past contests.

80's
http://history.sydlexia.com/index.php?title=Greatest_80s_Movie_-_2008
90's
http://history.sydlexia.com/index.php?title=Greatest_90%27s_Movie_-_2008


The 80's movie thread had 96 options with 13 brackets and 8 movies per bracket with the top two moving on.

The 90's movie thread had 156 movies with 15 rounds and 11 movies per bracket with the top three moving on. Which number makes it make more sense in the sake of brackets is fine with me I too will assemble a list soon.

I would consider the franchise rule but I am willing to add as many rounds as is doable but I don't want this to get annoying and/or boring.

Oh so we're not nominating our favorite movies...we're basically pitting every semi-decent 00's movie against each other. I was thinking we were all going to give our top 5 or something.

Here are some I'd like included then:

Memento
Children of Men
High Fidelity
LOTR: Return of the King
The Dark Knight
28 Days Later
The Prestige
The Departed
District 9
Gladiator
Kill Bill Vol. 1
Kill Bill Vol. 2
Napoleon Dynamite
Bourne Supremacy
Bourne Ultimatum
Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World
Watchmen
300
Sin City
Pan's Labyrinth
Spider-man
Star Trek
Star Wars Episode III
Superbad
X-2
V for Vendetta
Anchorman

If we're including 2010, then:

Inception
Kick Ass

-----

I like the idea of separating movies from a franchise. It's almost not fair to include the nearly 9 hour LOTR saga against, say, Shaun of the Dead.

I second Grand Torino.

Also, pretty much all of the lists so far, except for Napoleon Dynamite, because it is so boring and painful to watch.

I considered adding that but wasn't sure how many people saw it. Seconded.
