Ok for the decade is difficult, something like this:

Avatar (no matter what you say, it was stunning)

Requiem for a Dream

Donnie Darko

Amelie

Spider-Man

Rock n Rolla

Mirror Mask

Watchmen

Lord of the Rings

War inc.

Another hundred or so will probably occur to me once I've posted, but there ya go.

Have a good Hogmanay =D

I get confused about what I've seen and which decade it was from, but I can easily draw a top ten from the lists already provided which cover a lot of it for me (oh, and a couple of others I've just remembered):

Donnie Darko
Amelie
Mulholland Drive
Watchmen
Inglourious Basterds
The Orphanage
Downfall
Memento
Kairo (Pulse)
Shaun of the Dead

Plus honourable mentions for Eloge de L'Amour, Where The Wild Things Are, Diary of the Dead...(I knew it wouldn't take long before I started editing this list)

Looking back over the last ten years, there's not a great deal that stands out. Admittedly, I prefer older films, but... here's a few that I think deserve to be on my best of the decade list:

In the Shadow of the Moon
Divine Intervention
Memento
Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow
Lord of the Rings trilogy

I'm still in 'Best Film of 2009' mode, without getting into the whole decade thing, but films listed here that particularly appealed to me:-

Memento
Mulholland Drive
Pan's Labyrinth
The Dark Knight
Requiem for a Dream

Others I'll need to think on.

Hmmm, need to think about this one. I would definitely agree with the many nominations for "Memento". "The Machinist" is another neo-noir that springs to mind.

Off the top of my head, my *favourite* films (which isn't what I would necessarily say are the *best* films) based on how many times I re-watch them on DVD:

Hot Fuzz
Memento
Stardust
Lord of the Rings
Pan's Labyrinth
Gladiator
Casino Royale
Intacto
Pride & Prejudice
Pirates of the Caribbean- Curse of the Black Pearl (first one only! They may have ruined it now but I still love Capt Jack Sparrow when he first came to be)

I was going to include Ten Things I Hate About You until I checked on IMDB and realised it was released in 1999! How time flies...

Yeah, I keep thinking of films and the finding out they're late 90s. I got to the cinema a lot more in the 90s! I think I might be inclined to include the Coeh brothers' "Burn After Reading" on my list.

That's interesting. I'd probably add "Finding Nemo" to my list too.

I'm pleased that I appear to have missed all of the worst films of the decade, though there are times when it doesn't seem that way.

Perversely, I'd quite like to view some of them. In particular, "Dead at the Box Office", with its ancient film found hidden in the ceiling, made by a Nazi scientist doing brain experiments and with weird effects on viewers.

Now I see where Joel Lane got the central idea for "The Witnesses Are Gone" from :lol:
