Club film writers spent days sequestered in a stuffy, un-air-conditioned room—okay, it was actually just a few hours, and we were comfortable—in an effort to forge consensus on the Top 50 films of the ’00s.

It all began with Chuck Lorre becoming a household name for all the wrong reasons. Then there was Mad Men's Matthew Weiner making waves during the showrunner's painful, prolonged negotiations with the network he put on the map. The summer saw film auteur Frank Darabont make a stormy exit from his AMC smash hit The Walking Dead and then be replaced by The Shield veteran Glen Mazzara. But the news wasn't all negative.

By Phil Nugent and Andrew Osborne "Cult movie" is a hard thing to pin down. For the purposes of this list — celebrating the tenth anniversary of Donnie Darko — we've put a premium on the intensity and selectiveness of a movie's appeal. We've also limited each director to one film. See you at midnight! 1. The first R-rated comic-book movie stars Jane Fonda as a planet-hopping secret agent who has trouble keeping her clothes on. 2.
Any movie can have fans, and just about any science fiction, fantasy, or superhero movie these days might inspire those fans to dress up as their favorite characters and attend a convention. 3. Terry Gilliam's Brazil is the arguably the best (unofficial) movie version of Orwell's 1984 ever made, and certainly beats the pants off every official version. 4. 5. 6. 7. David Cronenberg redefined the possibilities of the horror movie as a vehicle for personal filmmaking with this, his first great movie. 8. 9. 10. Film buffs reveal 'must see' list. Cinema experts have named the 50 films they believe everyone should see before they die.
Francis Ford Coppola's 1979 Vietnam War classic Apocalypse Now heads up the list chosen by an expert panel, which included director Lord David Puttnam. Other titles in the top 10 include Brazilian film City of God and Roman Polanski's Chinatown. The list was compiled to mark this Sunday's relaunch of Film Four as a free-to-air channel. Alien, Lost in Translation and The Shawshank Redemption just missed out on a top 10 place. The top 50 also includes Pulp Fiction, Trainspotting, Erin Brockovich, The Breakfast Club and Scarface. Channel 4 said each film has been chosen for its unique and creative approach to filmmaking. Film critics Jason Solomons and Karen Krizanovich, Channel 4 head of film and drama Tessa Ross and the film director Menhaj Huda were also on the panel.

As 2011 draws to a close, one eye is inevitably on the treats that are lying ahead for 2012. With that in mind, we've got our line-up of, as things stands, the 25 films that are brightest on our radar. Now, a couple of disclaimers. There are films that haven't made the cut here simply because we don't know a fat lot about them yet, or at least not enough to get us fired up. Jack The Giant Killer, Rise Of The Guardians, Red Tails, Chronicle and Dark Shadows all fit into that category. Plus there are the films that we suspect will turn out strongly, but what we've seen of them so far hasn't blown us away (Brave, Skyfall).
We've also had to exclude films that have already had a release in either the UK or the US. However, that's still left us with a lot of tasty cinema. American Pie: The Reunion, though, is looking more promising. It’s got promise, this one. So far, so so. GritFX T-Shirts Magazine - StumbleUpon. Personally, I thought the first year of the new decade to be rather lacklustre as far as cinema goes.
The sheer volume of reckless, morally inept comedies and action films was overwhelming. Fellow author Adam Fay said it best last year when, in his piece on Christopher Nolan’s Inception stated, “While there is no doubt that this is a standout film, the over-the-top gushing of praise strikes me to be less about the strength of the actual film and more about the pitiful films it shares multiplex space with.”
Such a statement could be applied to many preceding years, but never more pertinent in the light of 2010’s bucket of trash. The Best It’s a short list, this one. But at the very top is Darren Aronofsky’s Black Swan. Also on the list for the year would be Monsters, a film that divided its audience (those who saw it, anyway) like chocolate and cheese.

The Diving Bell and the Butterfly (Le Scaphendre et le Papillon) Sin Nombre Snatch Spirited Away The Descent Once Oh Brother, Where Art Thou? The Lost Generation: A Decade of Teen Movies. The best teen movies reflect modern youth culture and alter it—they transform the vernacular, fashion, and the trajectory of the genre itself.
They are original and smart (even mid-dick joke). Some are raunchy comedies, some are stark dramas, some defy classification, but all are unflinchingly honest (even mid-dick joke). Though they very seldom win awards, the best teen movies usually compel repeat viewings and somehow seem to intuit the needs and tastes of generations to come. Here are 15 of the decade’s most memorable explorations of all the intrinsic charms and traumas of teendom. Most likely to influence future filmmakers: Brick (2005) Writer-director Rian Johnson overhauled the teen genre, the noir, and blew everyone’s mind by setting this brilliant whodunit in a high school.

Films have disappeared when production companies went bankrupt. Occasionally, a studio would remake a film and destroy the earlier version. Silent films in particular were once seen as having no further commercial value and were simply junked to clear out expensive storage space. This is necessarily an incomplete list.

War Horse As a story, it’s heavy-handed and sentimental. As a character study, it’s laughably sleight (as with Spielberg’s ET, the most three dimensional character isn’t even human). The score is John Williams in full nudge-nudge-let-me-tell-you-how-to-feel-mode. But there are some moments of real drama, and some irresistibly beautiful imagery—enough to sneak it into our Top 50. 49. 48. 47. happythankyoumoreplease Radnor’s tale of seven young New Yorkers searching for love and self-acceptance probably won’t win much praise among elements of the film crowd who require their films to lay bare the darkness and hopelessness of life. 46. 45. 44. 43. 42. 41.

Or they'll geek out with their friends about the cult classics they discovered together, rewatching copies of the original version of Donnie Darko or spreading around copies of Idiocracy and laughing at its accuracy.

Independent Comedy Movies and Films - Indie Comedies. The 20 Best Cartoons Of The 90's. The 90's were a golden age of cartoons. We had a blast putting together the 20 best, and we're sure this list will inspire some discussion.
