A Decade’s Worth of Top Ten Movies (2000 – 2010)

Happy new year folks!

I feel I should write a post about my favorite movies from year 2000 to 2010.

See if you can spot yours from this top 10 list [in order of preference].

#1 The Departed (2006) by Martin Scorsese

#2 The Reader (2008) by Stephen Daldry

#3 Revolutionary Road (2008) - Sam Mendes

#4 Brokeback Mountain (2005) - Ang Lee

#5 Quills (2000) - Philip Kaufman

#6 Memoirs of a Geisha (2005) - Rob Marshall

#6 Atonement (2006) - Joe Wright

#8 Closer (2004) - Mike Nichols

#9 Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2004) - Michel Gondry


  • The oldest film is Quills (2000) and the newest one is Inception (2010).
  • 1 of the listed favorite films won the Oscar Best Picture Award (The Departed, 2006) and 3 were nominated (The Reader, Brokeback Mountain, Atonement). For Bafta’s Best Film, 2 films won (Brokeback Mountain, Atonement) and 3 were nominated (The Departed, The Reader, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind).
  • Kate Winslet is the most represented actress on my list with 4 movies (The Reader, Revolutionary Road, Quills and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind).
  • Leonardo diCaprio is the most represented actor on my list with 2 movies (The Departed, Revolutionary Road).
  • Only one movie from my favorite director Martin Scorsese (The Departed).

Some of the movies that I like but didn’t make it to the top ten list are Roman Polanski’s The Pianist, Justin Chadwick’s The Other Boleyn Girl, Woody Allen’s Vicky Cristina Barcelona, Ang Lee’s Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, Ron Howard’s A Beautiful Mind, David Fincher’s The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and The Social Network and Rodrigo Cortes’ Buried.

  1. Hey, i completely agree that The Departed should be number 1, great movie! I also love Inception…guess I’m just a Leonardo DiCaprio fan. I havn’t seen the other movies except BB mountain and i’m not homophobic or anything but i just didn’t enjoy the homosexual scenes…made me cringe to be honest.
