IMDB’s 15 Top Rated Movies of the New Millenium

Filed under: Stuff I Like — petertypingfaster @ 4:09 pm

IMDB just released it’s list of the 15 top rated films of the last ten years, and as far as these popularity lists go, it’s not half bad.

  1. The Dark Knight (2008)
  2. The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King (2003)
  3. City of God (2002)
  4. The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring (2001)
  5. Up (2009)
  6. Memento (2000)
  7. The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers (2002)
  8. WALL*E (2008)
  9. Amélie (2001)
  10. The Departed (2006)
  11. The Lives of Others (2006)
  12. The Pianist (2002)
  13. Spirited Away (2001)
  14. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2004)
  15. Requiem for a Dream (2000)

There’s a nice mix of films up there, and I was pleasantly surprised to see City of God, one of my favorite movies, ranked so highly. Of course a lot of other deserving movies were left out, and some of those included on this list are questionable (all three Lord of the Rings movies? Really?), but it’s a hell of a lot better than a lot of lists I’ve read.

Full list can be found here.
