Are These the Top 15 Best Movies Since 2000?

There are countless lists of the best movies of all time, but what about focusing on just this millennium? Over on IMDB, they're listing off "the Top Rated Films of the New Millennium, looking at the 15 films made since 2000 that our users have rated as the best of the new millennium." So, it's not a bunch of snooty critics making these decisions, the list is based on ratings from general IMDB readers.

  1. The Dark Knight (2008)
  2. The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King (2003)
  3. City of God (2002)
  4. The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring (2001)
  5. Up (2009)
  6. Memento (2000)
  7. The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers (2002)
  8. WALL-E (2008)
  9. Amélie (2001)
  10. The Departed (2006)
  11. The Lives of Others (2006)
  12. The Pianist (2002)
  13. Spirited Away (2001)
  14. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2004)
  15. Requiem for a Dream (2000)

I actually don't have too many major beefs with this list (though, admittedly, I haven't seen a couple of them, like City of God — yes, I know, I know), and there are some inclusions that delight me, like Spirited Away! What say you?
