a lot of people say mulholland drive, but for me, the ony reason that movie is good and consider good by any other guy is because it has amazing lesbian sex scenes SO HOT!

I'll probably be flamed for this, but whatever, and I don't watch too many movies.
1.) Star Wars Episode III
2.) The Dark Knight
3.) Black Hawk Down
4.) The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King
5.) Gladiator
6.) Kingdom of Heaven
and those are the 6 that come to mind at this moment.

#33 Posted by AgentJ (8778 posts) -

Off the top of my head, ,Babel and the Lord of the rings Trilogy. Ill be in the minority and say Stranger than Fiction as well. That movie needs more praise. I mean, if you can make Will Farrell do a relatively serious movie, thats instant win.

#37 Posted by mordukai (7125 posts) -

I very disappointed and kinda shocked that no one here mentioned:

- The Usual Suspects
- Pan's Labyrinth.
- Blue Velvet.
- The Big Lebowski.

Shame on all of you.
#38 Posted by Delta_Ass (3246 posts) -

The Dark Knight
Wall-E
Spider-Man 2
Black Hawk Down

#39 Posted by Jimbo (9769 posts) -

Good lists - apart from those naming films from the 80s! ;) -  but I'm surprised Sin City hasn't been mentioned, unless I've missed it somewhere.  I thought SC was incredible.  I wouldn't say these were the 'best' necessarily, but perhaps the ones I most enjoyed:
__
Gladiator
LOTR Trilogy
Sin City
Bourne Trilogy
Black Hawk Down
Hero
City of God
Munich
Master & Commander
Boiler Room

--

I thought No Country For Old Men, The Departed and Children of Men were all a bit overrated.  Haven't seen The Dark Knight or There Will Be Blood yet.

@FilmGuy: 
 
You're right on the money about City of God, but also:
 
- Brokeback Mountain
- Let the Right One In (Sweden)
 
There are MANY more films that I can name, as I see films left and right, however, those are the two that stand out to me as immaculate films.
#43 Posted by Elston (58 posts) -
@Bruce: Man I pretty much hated Brokeback Mountain. Was one of the most overrated films of the decade imo. What did you like about it?
#44 Edited by Red12b (9073 posts) -

I am saddened immensely that not one person has said The Fountain by Darren Aronofsky, Shame, shame on all of you.
