    bobertoposted 8 years ago

    What is the best film in the last 10 years to now??

    What do you think??

    I personally enjoy a good Denzel Washington film

      fierycjposted 8 years agoin reply to this

      Denzel is the man. Training Day and Man On Fire does it for me any day. As for best film in the last 10 years...I'll go with Snatch and Layer Cake. Those movies kill me like you wouldn't believe.

        darksideposted 8 years agoin reply to this

        Snatch is a movie that I can watch again and again and be enthralled by the acting, the script, the soundtrack and the tight editing.

        Another movie that rocked my socks was The Boondock Saints.

    " The Shooter " with Mark Wahlberg and Danny Glover, totally amazing movie. Check out the trailer.

      I really liked that movie. But Danny Glovers lisp annoyed the hell out of me.

      One of the best movies ever though BC I'm surprised you didn't mention one of your pirate trilogies...lol

      I'm also with Darkside on Boondock Saints...also a great movie.

      Surprised too nobody mentioned the LOTR trilogy, or he Bourne Trilogy, or the Matrix Trilogy.

        I guess I consider those movies to be more than movies I'll call them "Epic Cinematic Adventures" smile

    Pity this wasn't called "Best Film in The Last 11 years". I'd go with Saving Private Ryan.

      Fight Club is great, but I've got to go with "Legend of 1900"

    I agree that Denzel Washington is an awesome actor.
    That said I just saw Slumdog Millionaire and was blown away, kind of like when I saw Saving Private Ryan. smile And Apollo 13.
    Do I have to just pick one?

    I have to agree with Snatch and Layer Cake although Snatch stands out i have to say, you have all listed some great films though!!

    I also seen Slumdog Millionaire last week and thought it was really a fascinating film!

    Has anyone seen Step Brothers- that is a very funny movie guys!!

    Keep them coming! smile

    Seriously people, the best movie is "Platoon"!  I realize it was from 1986, but who cares? great war movies

    Last ten years, I would go with "Band of Brothers" awesome, awesome mini series...from HBO, does that count?

  15. boberto profile image47
    bobertoposted 8 years ago

    American Gangster is a classic - Especially considering it is a true story!!

    Yet again Denzel Washington, by far the best actor in the World it has to be said!!

    Best film is Glory with Denzel Washington

    1. curiozities profile image60
      curiozitiesposted 8 years agoin reply to this

      That was a very good one but if I'm not mistaken it's older than 10 years.

    We've all ready got American Beauty, American Gangster, and American History X.

    How about American Psycho?
