Time for not only year-end movie lists, but the beginning of decade-end movie lists as well!

With my apologies from the people at Times Online, who have posted their version of the top 100 films of the decade.  Yes, this is a British online magazine, so the tastes may differ, however it’s pretty extensive.  Again, I have marked the ones I have seen and have some of my comments next to a few.  All movies are listed with (Director, release year).  Thus far I have seen 32, own 4 not watched and have 27 of them in my Blockbuster queue.  I am a bit surprised at the list, but again, I think it skews from the British mindset.

Without further ado, here we go!

100 The Devil Wears Prada (David Frankel, 2006)
99 Battle Royale (Kinji Fukasaku, 2000)
98 Crash (Paul Haggis, 2004) [This movie has been in my DVD player (which holds 5) for at least two years.  One day I’ll get around to watching it!]
97 Sympathy for Lady Vengeance (Park Chan-Wook, 2005)
96 Morvern Callar (Lynne Ramsay, 2002)
95 Amores Perros (Alejandro González Iñárritu, 2000)
94 An Inconvenient Truth (Davis Guggenheim, 2006)

92 Dirty Pretty Things (Stephen Frears, 2002)
91 Lantana (Ray Lawrence, 2001)

[Really?  This movie?  Frat boy humor has never really been my cup of tea.]
