Not surprised that we share handful of selections, Lance.

1. Spirited Away
2. Gangs of New York
3. Fight Club
4. Eyes Wide Shut
5. Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon
6. The New World
7. Cold Mountain
8. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
9. 2046
10. Magnolia
11. The Talented Mr. Ripley
12. The Man Who Wasn't There
13. The Aviator
14. The Fellowship of the Ring (extended version)
15. Solaris
16. Lost in Translation
17. Traffic
18. The Royal Tenenbaums
19. Being John Malkovich
20. The Princess and the Warrior

A couple notes: nothing from last year was good enough in my eyes to make this list (at this point), and the year most represented here was 1999, one of the best movie years ever.

If '99 was considered part of this decade, Fight Club would've been in the my Top 3.

Awesome lists from everyone, gotta check out some of these movies.

I don't see how 99 counts as part of this decade, unless you're just doing the "Last Ten Years" for your Laz. If I included 99 and 98, my list would look a bit different as well, since 1999 was an earth-shatteringly great year for film.

Oh, okay.

I have a feeling after I go through the P.T.-athon and Scorces-athon my list will look dramatically different.

1997-2007?

Fuck, that is 11.

It looks nice on paper though, so I'll stick with it.

Shawn of the Dead should be number 1 on everyone's list.

Yeah, bra. Gotta count 97 or 07, but ya can't have both. And it makes a hell of a lot more sense to count 07 at the time being, I think.

You could argue for both.

Keep '07 to make the number even
or
Keep '97 because '07 isn't over yet.

Either way, '07 is probably my favorite year for movies this decade. It has a steady mix of good big budget flicks, classic comedies, and potentially amazing dramas all in the same year. Count me in.

Oops. I totally misread the original list and totally did not mean to derail the thread.



Now I feel like I need to make a legitimate 2000-2007 list since you guys adapted to my mistake.

1. Spirited Away
2. Gangs of New York
3. Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon
4. The New World
5. Cold Mountain
6. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
7. 2046
8. The Man Who Wasn't There
9. The Aviator
10. The Fellowship of the Ring (extended version)
11. Solaris
12. Lost in Translation
13. Traffic
14. The Royal Tenenbaums
15. The Princess and the Warrior
16. The Quiet American
17. Brokeback Mountain
18. Heaven
19. The Departed
20. Millenium Actress

Now I feel a lot better. I'm not going to make a 1997-2007 list; you can just throw The Thin Red Line, Rushmore, Kundun, and yes, Shakespeare in Love in there somewhere, knock off the bottom 4, and figure it out yourselves.

Really? I'm excited for you, and also excited to discuss the films as you watch them.

Which Scorsese films HAVE you already seen? I think collectively we can give you some advice on what order you should see the rest in.

My favorite Scorsese film is E.T. followed closely by the Lord of the Rings trilogy. You should just watch them over and over.
