I'm making the most definitive list of favorite movies ever.

For every year, I'm listing every movie I've seen and compare them all to each other asking one question; Which movie do I like more. Movies that score in the 80th percentile or higher, advance to the next round: Favorite of the Decade. After each Decade is done, an All Time list will be formed.

Favoritest 40 Movies of the '0 Decade!!!

It bows to no one (Yet...). The first "My favorite movies ever" list, where I had listed 250 movies I really liked off the top of my head, and figured this out on a large paper graph at the kitchen table, in pencil... Fellowship of the ring was a movie of special notice. Here, it strides a decade like no other movie. Avatar and Wall-E are movies that gave me the kind of movies I've always wanted to see. I've always been a Sci-Fi guy, but, before Fellowship, I wouldn't really like calling Star Wars Sci-Fantasy. After the Mines of Moria, I would allow myself to enjoy fantasy without the name Jim Henson somehow attached to it.

Second place was just a "Nooooooo" out of first.

Eleven of the top forty are based on comic books, and one filmmaker made the top 40 with every outing of the decade... Okay, more than one did, but I was thinking of someone who's made more than one movie that decade.

The decade is also a different field of comparison than the individual year is, so a movie like Black Pearl may come out stronger to pull ahead than Master and Commander does, when faced with movies like Iron Man and Minority Report.

  1. The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring
  2. Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith
