The 100 Greatest Movies of the 21st Century

by Staff on June 8, 2009

The trouble with most “Greatest Movies” lists is that they have to include boring old stuff from the 50′s that nobody actually wants to watch anymore.

Sure, there’s still plenty of decent old flicks, but if I’m going to be devoting 90 minutes of my night I want something a bit more recent. With that in mind, I present the 100 greatest movies since the year 2000:
