    • I had no idea that this was up, I thought this would have been off I mean who has been to the movies in the last 15 to 16 months or so?

    • Don't the Oscars usually happen around this time? Mind you 2020 was a very abnormal year, especially for the cinemas. When was the last time you saw a film in a theatre? Before the pandemic, I'll bet. Whatever the situation, film has been kept alive with streaming services and cinemas giving limited admissions. That means the film awards season is still happening and so will the Golden Globes.

    • Very little fault can be found but I would have "The Dark Knight" and "1917" on my list.

    • January 30, 2021 11:49 AM EST
    • Nice information but funny how few of those I bothered to watch, not many geared to teens.

    • January 12, 2021 9:25 AM EST
    • All brilliant movies on your list and I can't have an argument against any, however, for 2003 my choice is "Monster" and also I would go with Dark Knight over Slumdog but barely.

    • January 9, 2021 6:36 PM EST
    • Interesting video and choices and also your list and like others here I saw very few, Grouching Tiger, Zero Dark Thirty, Slumdog, Lord of the Rings, Mad Max.

    • January 8, 2021 1:14 PM EST
    • I wonder why top movies are almost always not the best crowd-pleasing movies but some drama or artsy thing only crowd-pleasing there is Zero Dark Thirty, Mad Max, and Lord of the Rings.

    • January 7, 2021 1:48 PM EST
    • Zero Dark THirty and Mad Max rocked and don't even mention The Dark Knight, just awesome.

    • January 7, 2021 11:36 AM EST
    • The best movie in that whole time 2000/20 is The Dark Knight. :)

    • January 6, 2021 4:26 PM EST
    • The only of those movies I have seen or wanted to see were Lord of the Rings, Zero Dark Thirty, and Mad Max the rest are for movie buffs I just want to be entertained.

    • January 5, 2021 8:42 PM EST
    • A very good video, and though I am a teen I have seen most, your list is cool but what I focused on right away is your 2008, Slumdog over Dark Knight but I guess it is a matter of taste and Slumdog is a good movie but Dark Knight rocks.

    • I know I used to publish my Top 10 Movie lists annually on TSO. I have kind-of slaced off over time. In the meantime, here's my top for each year:

      Some of you who've read my lists over the years may notice different favorites from the time I posted. Don't forget tastes change and afterthoughts remind you of things you missed the first time.

    • Some of you have liked the WatchMojo lists I post here. A lot of them you'll find yourself agreeing with. Some you won't. They just created a list of the Top 21 Movies for each year of the 21st Century. Do you agree with them? Here's the list:

    • Interesting, this might not be a pick of many but my choice is "Kubo And The Two Strings" this is without a doubt to IMHO an amazing work of animated achievement in cinematic history.

    • April 1, 2020 8:43 PM EDT
    • I have a soft spot for Isle of Dogs as a Dog lover supreme. :)

    • March 31, 2020 1:15 PM EDT
    • All on the list are awesome, I love animated movies.

    • March 27, 2020 9:21 PM EDT
    • That is an awesome choice I also liked "Coco" and we all liked "Frozen" I would assume.

      So many of them I love it is hard to pick one but if I had to I would say "Coco".

    • I love them all, I am a big fan of these animated movies and especially from Pixar.

    • March 18, 2020 9:19 AM EDT
    • Rango, that was my favorite and is my all-time fav animated movie. :)

    • I love The Secret Life of Pets. cx

    • February 29, 2020 8:34 PM EST
    • As for me, I can't decide what the best animated film of the past decade is. I will say that the best year for animated films this past decade was 2016. That year was full of top-notch animated films like Zootopia, Finding Dory, Moana, Secret Life Of Pets, Kubo And The Two Strings, you could not be disappointed that year!

    • February 29, 2020 8:33 PM EST
    • One thing about this board is the biggest movie talk here has been about animated movies. WatchMojo did a summery of the best of the past decade and made an interesting Top 20. Feel free to debate it all you want.

    • I like your picks better, I am a bit annoyed that Parasite won big with Picture and Director my choices were different but that being said it is a very good film. I just thought 1917 was so extraordinary it deserved it.
