The Ones That Mattered: What Are Your Favorite Films From This Decade?

This decade brought us historical triumph and unimaginable tragedy. It has brought out two wars in the Middle East, the end of the second-longest dry streak in sports history, the absolute worst in our elected officials, and the hope and dreams of what we can accomplish from others, among other things. We have seen the rise of the New Media from The Huffington Post and social networking sites, and the free-fall of the printing press.

It has also given us an amazing ride at the movies. And I bet a few handfuls of them have moved, shaped, and entertained you in ways that still stay with you. My question for tonight: what were those movies you thought mattered to you the most?

Over the next few months, I'll be engaging a big undertaking: the 100 best films from this decade. Expect the list to begin sometime this week, depending if I have the time and i'm not bogged down with school work.

I'll be interested to see your list, Jonathan. In part because I'm not sure that the first film decade of Y2K has necessarily given us a hundred enduring classics, at least from my moviegoing perspective. But I'll wait and react to your initial notions...
