    Just curious to see what everyone else considers to be the best movies of this century, and if anyone has similar taste in movies. :)

    Hate to pick nits, but if Skelter's information is correct, Requiem for a Dream and Memento are not 21st century movies; they are 20th century movies.

    Personally I think it's a tad early to be picking the best of anything for the 21st Century. We're not even half-way through the first decade!
