Subject: Definitive Year for Movies in the 2000's?

Written By: ocarinafan96 on 02/27/16 at 3:21 pm

Which year in your opinion best represented the 2000's decade when it came to movies?

Personally if you ask me I'd say 2004 because of its golden classics of animated films like Shrek 2 and The Incredibles, action films like The Bourne Supremacy and I-Robot, one of the best superhero flicks ever made being Spiderman 2, and classic comedy flicks like Mean Girls and Anchorman!

2000, 2001, & 2008 are all honorable mentions!

2005

Revenge of the Sith, Batman Begins, King Kong, War of the Worlds, Narnia, etc. Those are "pure 00s" movies.

I'll admit, maybe I'm old fashioned, but I felt like the Narnia movie didn't really capture the "magical" feel that I got when I read the books. The books seemed to be more about adventure and the innocence of childhood (i.e. sibling rivalry between Edmund and the other kids, Turkish delight being just the best thing in the world), whereas the movie focused more on rather cliche battle scenes and war.

As cheesy as it was, I felt like the 80s TV movie felt more "magical" than the 2005 one, with not nearly as much fighting and cliche flashiness.

I know mqg will disagree with me here - because 2005 CoN is apparently his favorite movie of all-time. ;D

I don't remember saying it was my favorite movie of all time, but I do remember saying it was my favorite movie based off a book/novel franchise. I respect your opinion,and this is common. I know A LOT of people who don't like movies based off books. I felt the same way about Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief when they screwed that one over compared to the books. At least The Chronicles of Narnia: Lion, Witch, and Wardrobe was a lot more entertaining to me, and I'd love battle scenes and wars in any of my movies!

"Million Dollar Baby" is on the top of my pile of DVDs to watch, and I am looking forward to it.
