Top 10 best movies 2003
2332 8.2 8.41. Oldboy (2003)
1599 7.7 7.92. Dogville (2003)
7374 8.2 8.93. The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the Kin... (2003)
Note : I really liked the Fellowship, I liked even more The Two Towers and I thought this one was the best of them. A great conclusion. Maybe in the 80's, they had The Star Wars trilogy but our generation can proudly say "We saw The Lord of the Rings back then when it came out and it was freaking awesome!!!".
4750 7.6 84. Big Fish (2003)
1455 7.1 7.25. Elephant (2003)
Note : Gus van Sant is a very good director but not all of his movies are successful (for example, Good Will Hunting is rather overrated). Not this one... A really schocking story told in a very particular way. I'm sure that many viewers would find this movie frustrating as many questions are raised while watching it but no answer at all are provided by the movie. I loved the fact that you have to think about the movie and the events themselves to find yourself the answers you're looking for.
1444 7.1 7.36. Monster (2003)
Note : I like a serial killer movie from time to time but there are never among my favorite movies (for example, I think that The Silence of the Lambs and Seven are rather overrated). However, there are exceptions... This movie is one of them. A chilling story without chases, explosions or big shootings. It really focuses on the main character and it is rather fascinating. Theron really deserved her oscar for this perfomance.
309 7.4 7.67. The Barbarian Invasions (2003)
2358 7.6 88. Mystic River (2003)
540 7.2 7.59. American Splendor (2003)
50 6.6 7.310. Baadasssss! (Badass) (2003)
Note : It is a fascinating movie about how Mario van Peebles's father directed his most famous movie (Sweet Sweetback's Baadasssss Song) . It works on some many levels. On one hand,the making of the movie which was rather chaotic but also so impressive, showing the determination of Melvin van Peebles to finish his movie. On the other hand, it shows also the struggle of Mario van Peebles who, at the same time, has a deep respect for his father achievement but you can feel his resentment for his father because he went so far to finish his movie (for example, back then, M. van Peebles was 13 years and had to play in a sex scene in this legendary picture...). If you're interested in motion picture history, you should check this out.
