TWQ: Best Movies Of The 21st Century

Now that we are coming to the end of 2009, ten years of the 21st century will have passed. There have been a lot of great movies released in that period. TWQ (The Weekend Question) asks for your favourites.

What are your favourite  movies released over the last ten years? List as many as you wish.

My answers are as follows:

* The Hours: ...a homage to the Mrs Dalloway novel set in three timezones.

* The Lives Of Others:...a German thriller about the Stasi in the East Germany of the 1980's.

* The Lord Of The Rings: (Extended Editions)..the vast trilogy of movies set in Middle Earth

* Pan's Labyrinth: ..the Spanish adult fairytale that is DEFINATELY not for children.

* The Mist:...A classic tale of people trapped in a supermarket by mist as monsters close in.

* The Others:...a woman and two children are plagued in a house by noises...has a spectacular twist.

* Let The Right On In:...a Swedish vampire movie. Very memorable.

*Sophie Scholl: The Final Days: ..German true story about the trial of  the White Rose girl by the Nazis

Now it's over to you...

Lord of the Rings, and the Harry Potter film are the only ones I've been to see.

Not keen on the new cinemas, too loud and screen to bright and big.

I'm the one sat at the back and hoping I don't have a migraine :)

I read TQW as "TWO," as in "two best movies of ... You like the spooky stuff. Some, like The Others seemed too spooky for me. I did like the movie with Bruce Willis about dead people that also had a gotcha twist. Netchick says hi.

Definitely "The Sixth Sense" - that was this century, right?? Also, I really liked "Moulin Rouge" and, even though it was schmaltzy, Disney's "Enchanted" was very cute!

Oh, and "Sweeney Todd" was good, too!
