High 10 Motion pictures Of The ’00s | Receive US

Hello Outposters, I’m again with the High 10 motion pictures of the noughties. Let’s not waffle on and get straight to it!

2000 – Gladiator

There have been a comparatively respectable quantity of flicks round on the flip of the century, however none of them come near yet one more Ridley Scott masterpiece. Gladiator not solely offers us Scott at his greatest, nevertheless it places Russell Crowe and Hans Zimmer on the forefront of everybody in Hollywood’s want listing. Oh boy had been we entertained!


2001 – Moulin Rouge!

Yep, I selected a fruity musical love story over Lord Of The Rings. Earlier than you all go frothing on the mouth with fury, hear me out. My spouse and I had simply had two youngsters within the house of 16 months and this was the primary correct date night time we had in practically two years, so this film has sentimental worth to me and the soundtrack is killer!

We’ve just lately been to the West Finish present in London, which dare I say was even higher than the film. I extremely suggest it, particularly if you wish to earn “brownie” factors with the missus.

Lastly, I don’t like Lord Of The Rings. Watching a bunch of midgets galavanting throughout mountains and fields while moaning concerning the lack of breakfast is boring. I’m by no means going to apologize for making this determination.

Moulin Rouge


2002 – Indicators

Scorching diggity I really like this film. This film is extra than simply an alien invasion flick, it’s about religion, household, and trusting in God’s plan no matter how totally merciless it may be. Certainly one of King Mel’s most interesting performances. Gibson does an amazing job of exhibiting Reverand Graham Hess’ contained fury with God after the demise of his beloved spouse. We see him grappling with the heartbreak, the lack of his religion, having to lift his two younger kids, and on high of all this, coming to phrases with an inevitable alien invasion.

M. Night time Shyamalan weaves all these intricate backstories round a gradual construct of the growing alien sightings earlier than delivering the products within the closing third that offers you that gut-punch twist that retains you on the sting of your seat. Indicators is a kind of uncommon motion pictures that I might welcome a sequel.



2003 – Grasp And Commander: The Far Facet of the World

Wow, what a film! Simply scripting this makes me wish to watch it. Usually described as the most effective Star Trek movie ever made, it beggers perception that this by no means turned a franchise. An absolute murals from begin to end. It’s been lengthy rumored {that a} prequel based mostly on the primary novel by Patrick Ness is within the works however fuck prequels, I desire a sequel and I would like it now!



2004 – Spider-Man 2

Oof, what a tricky yr! Downfall, Crew America, The Incredibles, Anchorman, Primer, Daybreak of the Dead, and for us British we bought Layer Cake, Shaun of the Lifeless, and The Soccer Manufacturing facility – which for my American brethren in order for you an perception into the attraction of soccer and it’s tribal rivalry right here within the UK, that is might be an training for you!

Nevertheless, I’m going for the predictable possibility and selecting Spider-Man 2, one of many best superhero motion pictures ever made, and a kind of uncommon events the place the sequel is healthier than its predecessor. You all know I’m a DC man, and for me, that is fairly probably the truest interpretation of one in every of Stan Lee’s characters. Marvel has all the time been concerning the struggles of regular day-to-day life and the general public expectations for its superheroes, and Rami nailed it with this film.

If Marvel have any sense, they might have a look at the present state of the infinite shite they’re producing, take a lesson from Spider-Man 2 and re-learn what being a Marvel superhero is all about.



2005 – Batman Begins

Yep, one other superhero movie, however this was again when Hollywood handled these characters with respect and the gravitas that they deserved. Again within the days earlier than the likes of James Gunn and Taiki Watiti turned these characters into an embarrassing joke.

As with the aforementioned Spider-Man 2 and Sam Rami’s clear understanding and appreciation of the character, Christopher Nolan took the bar Raimi had set and raised it by a number of ranges for Batman. Casting Christian Bale as Bruce Wayne/Batman and surrounding him with an ensemble of high quality actors like Sir Michael Caine, Morgan Freeman, Liam Neeson, and Rutger Hauer was a lesson he realized from Richard Donner, when Donner surrounded Reeve with the likes of Brando, Hackman, Cooper, and Glen Ford.

Nolan made Batman extra grounded and plausible, and remarkably managed to persuade you {that a} man with billions of {dollars} at his disposal with an insane quantity of willpower and a way of righteousness might really develop into a vigilante dressed as a large bat. Added to this had been sensible results over CGI and arguably Hans Zimmer’s second-greatest rating. A HUGE quantity of reward goes to James Newton Howard. All of it makes Batman Begins ageless.

Batman Begins


2006 – Kids Of Males

If in case you have by no means seen this film, cease what you might be doing and go and watch it! Kids Of Males is a kind of motion pictures set within the close to future that’s so doubtlessly correct, that you simply hope it by no means comes true.

Sadly, with dwindling numbers of youngsters being born in Western societies, and the infinite inflow of unlawful immigrants flooding our international locations, like 1984, I concern Kids Of Males is an inevitability fairly than only a miserable story about our future. Regardless, this film is solely excellent.



2007 – No Nation For Previous Males

Candy Lord and child Jesus this movie is artwork. It is a excellent movie from begin to end. Javier Bardem simply makes the highest 10 for one in every of Holywood’s most intimidating, ruthless, and admittedly, fucking terrifying villains in Hollywood historical past. I’m not eloquent sufficient to place this film into phrases, so I’ll simply spherical it off with… it’s fucking cinematic gold.

No Country


2008 – The Darkish Knight

Yeah I do know, one other superhero film however come on, this isn’t simply the second best superhero film ever made, it’s Michael Mann’s Warmth with comedian ebook characters. The Darkish Knight is the gold normal for superhero motion pictures. Actually, it’s so good that Hollywood merely gave up even attempting to compete… aside from Zack Snyder, however extra about that later!

Dark Knight


2009 – The Highway

One other rattling positive yr with District 9, Damage Locker, Avatar, Inglourious Basterds, Up, and Moon however The Highway takes it for me. This film is kind of probably essentially the most disturbing and terrifying film I’ve ever seen. It exhibits how shortly humanity will sink to our lowest depths with a purpose to survive in a world that’s finally unsurvivable.

There isn’t a hope and no God goes to avoid wasting us. Technically and spiritually superior aliens usually are not going to miraculously seem and whisk us away to a brand new world. The Highway exhibits us how the top of days will actually be with humanity resorting to cannibalism, rape, pedophilia, homicide, and suicide, a literal hell on earth, with solely essentially the most evil and wicked of us lasting the longest.

The Highway is a film that has had essentially the most influence on me for so long as I can bear in mind and the ebook is even fucking worse. I’ve solely ever seen it twice and every time I wish to revisit it, I merely can’t final greater than about half an hour, I discover it that disturbing. A film that has that a lot of an influence greater than deserves its spot as my number-one decide for 2009.

The Road


So there you go. My High 10 of the ’00s. I hope you all lasted to the top and didn’t simply get to Moulin Rouge! after which head to the feedback part to name me a c**t! To date, I believe this High 10 is essentially the most numerous I’ve made. What are your ideas, what would you add or miss? Hit me with it Outposters!
