10 Most Influential Films of the Last 10 Years

/Film’s Brendon Connelly has come up with a list of the ten most influential (English language) films of the last ten years. Read the blog post for the reasons why these particular films have been included but the list itself is as follows:

  • Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow
  • The Bourne Ultimatum
  • Traffic
  • My Big Fat Greek Wedding
  • Polar Express
  • Rushmore
  • The Matrix
  • Children of Men
  • The 40 Year Old Virgin
  • Coraline

Connelly does admit, however, that the list is skewed towards the technical side of film-making and storytelling.

I would agree with some of the commenters, however, that the Lord of the Rings trilogy should have been included. I’d say that’s partly for the number and scale of special effects used but mainly for, for the first time, producing three films concurrently!

The discussion in the comments is quite lively, by the way, so make sure you check that out as well.
