RE: The Greatest 25 Films Of The 21st Century (BBC)

So the buffoons over at BBC got buzzed on some Earl Grey and posted this whack version of the best 25 films made so far this century (nay, this milennia!). There’s some good stuff on there, many films also appear on my list below, but there’s a few I can’t get behind.

How Pan’s Labyrinth is still considered to be some amazing film boggles my mind. Inside Llewyn Davis one spot behind No Country For Old Men? More like a million spots!!! Yi Yi in the top ten??? I think I fell asleep before the second Yi. Kudos to them for putting In The Mood For Love so high, though. That movie is ridiculously beautiful. Their list can be found here.

This is mine:

25. Force Majeure

24. Inception

23. Inside Out

22. Scott Pilgrim Vs The World

21. Beasts Of The Southern Wild

20. Tae Guk Gi: The Brotherhood Of War

19. We Need To Talk About Kevin

18. Mystic River

17. Dark Knight

16. Primer

15. Requiem For A Dream

14. The Wolf Of Wall Street

13. The Master

12. Zodiac

11. Into The Wild

10. Moonrise Kingdom

9. Almost Famous

8. Children Of Men

7. Inglorious Basterds

6. Birdman

5. In The Mood For Love

4. Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind

3. The Place Beyond The Pines
