Your Top 10 Films Of The Decade 2000-2009

Does exactly what it says on the tin. Some of the nonsense contained herein may be very loosely related to The Sisters of Mercy, but I wouldn't bet your PayPal account on it. In keeping with the internet's general theme nothing written here should be taken as Gospel: over three quarters of it is utter gibberish, and most of the forum's denizens haven't spoken to another human being face-to-face for decades. Don't worry your pretty little heads about it. Above all else, remember this: You don't have to stay forever. I will understand.

I despair of you - Let the Right One In is utterly brilliant.

and I despair the way a piece of pish has been built up into such a cult - I hated it, get over it! :P

In no particular order.... actually this is pretty tricky...

~ No Country for Old Men
~ Children of Men
~ The 2 Clint Eastwood war movies- Letters from Iwo Jima etc
~ The Queen - yes really, I thought Helen Mirren was outstanding
~ V for Vendetta was better than expected... as was Ironman
~ Monster
~ um ........????

I think that is all I can come up with at the moment.

Ironman is another of my most wank fillums... tries to think of something he enjoyed...

The Ridicules of Chronic!

I liked that, most folks ken it as The Chronicles of Riddick, I took it at face value and enjoyed the hell outta masel, even Dim Weasle was bearable :D

In retrospect, while at the cinema I loved the LOTR movies, IMO they played too fast-and-loose with the source material.

No Tombombadil, no Barrow Wights, Glorfindel pointlessly replaced by Arwen, Aragorn's motivation totally changed...

...and that's just the changes (that I can think of off the top of my head) that they made in Fellowship :roll:

I can totally agree with you.

And I'm another Tolkien geek that compared the Fillum with Teh Booke and saw what they did and what they had to Give Up and all...

It was a bitch of a job and they did a bloody GOOD job considered.

Hail Jackson.
