Was I the only one that hated Mullholland Drive with a passion? Granted I am not a big fan of David Lynch's work, but the rest of his films I can understand the acclaim behind. I gotta disagree on The Devil's Rejects also, I thought it was decent, but not even close to best of the decade.

Anyways my top 10 for 2000-2009
10.28 Days Later
9.Donnie Darko
8.Knocked Up
7.Training Day
6.Snatch
5.Memento
4.Kill Bill Vol 1
3.The 40 Year Old Virgin
2.The Departed
1.Sin City

Also, off topic, but Brad, whats the longest gap between a movie and its sequel? Random discussion between myself and a friend, just though you would be the best person I know of to ask such a thing.
Right on dude.

As to the sequel question, that's a good one. Wall Street and Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps might be my guess though, if we only consider sequels that were made by the original director or at least had his blessing. 23 years between those.

Naomi Watts was a little bit hotter, but you're damn right.

You didn't like Mulholland Dr., eh?

Oh that's why.

EDIT: That came off mean. Sorry. But none of your favorite movies are exactly similar to Mulholland Dr., so I can understand why you didn't like it.

...I actually saw more of those than I didn't, which in itself is shocking to me.

Edit: And they actually almost entirely fall into 2 categories, either:
-"I actually really enjoyed it, even though logic tells me I shouldn't"
-"God damn it people, this is not funny"

I pretty much only like comedies (good or bad, except the ___ Movie series), fantasy movies like LOTR, and comic book movies. Inception and Shutter Island were great, but not from that decade, so...whatever. And I don't have a list of 2000s films in front of me to list, and I'm not a film buff, so.....

I'd probably throw the Spongebob movie in there.

Man, I think I'm the only guy on the planet who's not a fan of the Coen brothers. I didn't laugh once during The Big Lebowski or Burn After Reading, I thought O Brother Art Thou was horrible. Fargo was pretty good, but kinda weird.

I'm not a huge fan of movies, though. I have a incredibly short attention span and I end up ditching movies after ten minutes or so if I don't get what's going on (usually the case).
ex: Mulholland Drive. I'm not a huge fan of mindfuck-style movies at all, though -- I never know what the hell's going on at all.

anyways, here are the movies I remembered liking A LOT from this decade, off the top off my head. No order:
-Donnie Darko
-The Departed
-40 Year-Old Virgin
-The Dark Knight
-Shooter
-Bruce Almighty
-Old School
-Dodgeball
-Anchorman
-Borat
-The Hangover
-Spiderman 1 & 2
-The Protector 1-3
-Crank

Maybe I'm thinking about some other "brothers."
I didn't like Burn after reading but I thought it was good for the dollar I spent(I saw it at the local dollar theater by place). I love The Big Lebowski. I still remember like it was yesterday when my dad took me to the movie theaters to see it.


Damn that was a long time ago...

Yeah, the Coens are my favorite directors of all time, and The Big Lebowski is my favorite movie of all time with Fargo possibly being my second. I guess they aren't as broadly appealing as dudes getting hit in the nuts and fart jokes or something, but I still think their humor is pretty accessible. Humor isn't their only game, of course, as No Country is one of the blackest (and best) movies of the last decade.
