After drafting Top 10 Male and Female performances of 2000-2009, it's time for movies. My movie list is mostly based on IMDB rating I give each film after watching it. Having taken a close look at feature films premiered from 2000 to 2009, here is my TEN most favorite ones:
Moulin Rouge! is my favorite musical of all time and the second highest rated (after Les Miserables). Baz Luhrmann has managed to unite a spectacular story, with greatest visuals and beautiful music, amazing cast and heartbreaking finale in one movie masterpiece.
A very crazy, dark comedy by insane brother Coens. Ethan and Joel are great directors, one of the greatests, each their movie is a lot enjoyable and close to perfection. However, Burn After Reading is the most extraordinary among them with delightful sense of humor, brilliant cast and perfect directing. You can't see such entertaining movie each year.
Das Leben Der Anderen (The Lives of Others) is one of the greatest examples of modern European film making. Telling a story of 80s German playwright and his relationship with wife, while being monitored and spied by Stasi (Ministry for State Security), it explores the emotions of complicated marriage, sympathy and atrocities of whole regime.
One of my favorite animated feature films. It's perfect movie, having everything a children film is supposed to have: laughs, awesome visuals, entertaining plot, happy ending.
Yeah, another animation and another film from 2001. Monsters, Inc. is a great example of fantastic animation characters, a really entertaining plot and beautiful music.
I can't make any good list without WALL·E - a phenomenal animation about waste collecting robot in distant future. This is a peak of Pixar production, because they managed to give a robot very true, natural and human emotions by perfect sound effects.
