And the best movie of the decade is…

December 29, 2009


Well, folks, it was a squeaker, but go ahead and give yourself a good ol’ pat on the back, Michel Gondry.You earned it, buddy.

Yes, there were a lot of awesome movies this past decade, and it ain’t easy to sift through the best of the best, so I tip my hat to all of you out there who supported your favorites and even threw in some great alternates for me to go back and re-watch/discover over this fine vacation of mine. Here’s to hoping the next ten years of cinematic entertainment is just as boss.

    yet again you mention “Dear Zachary: A Letter to a Son About His Father,” and I can’t wait to get to it on my instant play on netflix… I really wanted to watch it after your review, and now again I need to watch it even more

    Ah, the people have spoken, and for once the people have IMPECCABLE TASTE! This is easily one of my all-time favorite romantic comedies, but it’s a great film for many other reasons — visuals, music, the fragmented storyline, amazing performances from Jim Carrey and the always dependable Kate Winslet. “Eternal Sunshine,” if you ask me, is certainly one of the best films to come out of 2000-2009.

    I pretty much agree. Eternal Sunshine is flawless. Really is great!

    I love Eternal Sunshine and it’s in my top 10 as well! Not that it’s online yet, it takes so much work 😦

    I totally agree with this choice. So you can put down another vote for Eternal Sunshine!

      You could have voted for Blades of Glory, dammit! You know you could have! I put the OTHER category on there for that specific purpose. Don’t you DARE point the finger at me on this one! I’m SICK of it!

    Of the ones on there I’ve seen, I’d go with either Lost In Translation or The Departed personally. You need to do a Lost in Translation review soon, still gotta see Eternal Sunshine

      I know, I know, just feel like I need to give it a refresher viewing. It’s been a while, man.
