4. High Fidelity (2000)

What really matters is what you like, not what you are like. Books, records, films - these things matter. Call me shallow but it's the fuckin' truth.

5. Pay It Forward (2000)

I guess it's hard for people who are so used to things the way they are - even if they're bad - to change. 'Cause they kind of give up. And when they do, everybody kind of loses.

10. The Way of the Gun (2000)

There is a natural order. The way things are meant to be. An order that says that the good guys always win. That you die when it's your time, or you have it coming. That the ending is always happy, if only for someone else. Now at some point it became clear to us that our path had been chosen and we had nothing to offer the world. Our options narrowing down to petty crime or minimum wage. So, we stepped off the path, and went looking for the fortune that we knew was looking for us. Once off the path you do what you can to eat and to keep moving. You don't blow your ghost of a chance with nickel and dime. No possessions, no comforts. Need is the ultimate monkey. A pint of your blood can fetch you fifty bucks. A shot of cum, three grand. You keep your life simple and you can literally self-sustain.

Unwatched contenders


Top films listed in the order I like them, though repeat viewings could potentially rearrange said order. And of course the order could be further altered once I watch the "Unwatched contenders".

Runners-up and Unwatched contenders listed alphabetically.

Ooo, the best-of lists have arrived! Between our actual lists and runners up, we share 9 titles in common!

Ha, but there's a pretty big difference in opinion on a couple of your other movies, which is nice to see too.

Never heard of Versus. Adding it to my want-to-watch right now! Glad to see these posted finally. I'll try to pace myself!

Unbreakable gets overlooked pretty often, I think. It was M. Night Shyamalan's second best film behind Sixth Sense, that I have seen.

@Joseph Grey - I'm in the minority on thinking Unbreakable is Shyamalan's best film...and I'm fine with that. And I'd agree that it and The Sixth Sense are his best films from what I've seen too.

The Emperor's New Groove is one of the best animation ever :)
