A.V. Club’s Almost The Best Films of the 00’s.

December.8.2009

This is a great list from the AV. Club people. They came up with “Almost the best films of the 00’s: orphans and personal favorites”. It is quite simple. They came up with the top five films that each of the contributors loved that are not in The Best Films of the 00’s and then compiled them having twenty-five films in total.

I have to agree of course with some of the films. I loved Minority Report with its sci-fi content. I loved Rachel Getting Married when I watched this one when I was trying to watch all the films nominated for Oscars. I extremely loved Shaun of the Dead, no questions asked. I was really amused with The 40-year Old Virgin. Sideways was quite impressive. Amelie is pure love. About Schmidt is actually interesting, well, except for that scene with Kathy Bates. And I want to watch Dogville again for its thematic content.

Here is their list and enjoy.
