Top 10 Films of the Decade

It has been a relentless month of retrospective. I’m late to the game, but still throwing it out there. A lot has happened in the “Aughts”, but instead of digesting the big stories, a popular favorite of A&E sites is to take the ultimate challenge of creating Best of the Decade lists. I haven’t dared to create such ambitious lists as other sites (see the AV Club for the ultimate in Decade lists), but I have prepared my Top 10 Films of the Decade – and honorable mentions.  So, what films managed to capture my attention and solidify themselves as my favorites? Here they are. Let the discussions begin.
