    Good 2000s movies, which come to mind:

    Adaptation (Awesome movie, which I saw recently)
    Kill Bill (Both, great action flicks)
    Hot Fuzz (better than Shaun of the Dead imo.)
    Let the Right One In (A good vampire movie)
    The Last Samurai (yeah, I like it..)
    District 9
    Lord of the Rings movies
    Watchmen
    Shaun of the Dead


    Atleast most of these would make my top 20. I'm not a big movie nerd, but I guess I'll be able to put together a top 20 list with some time... I'll return to edit later maybe.

    Hot Fuzz makes it in my Top 10 films ever. It's so damn good.
    Besides that, there was the LotR stuff, the Bourne films, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, No Country for Old Men, etc. I'd put the LotR films in my Top 10 ever as well.

    I'm REALLY happy to see so many of you mention Hot Fuzz. It's one of my favorite movies of all time but everyone I know seems to downright hate it.

    Actually... No, it's not. Although I enjoyed the movie, it has pretty annoying plot holes and isn't THAT original. Still, better than most stuff this year.


    I haven't seen Inglorious Bastards yet.
