Favorite box office champion: 2000s edition

Here are the nine box office champions for 2000-2008. Out of those, which did you like the most?

And, out of curiosity, what do you think will do best in 2009? My guess is the Transformers sequel.

LotR: RotK is probably the one I enjoy the most.

If "Fellowship" was in the poll, I wouldn't have picked Dark Knight.

Dark Knight. Didn't care that much for the LOTR movies. Spidey and Pirates would probably be next on the list.

I've only seen four of these, but The Dark Knight was the only one I was impressed by.

Haven't seen Dark Knight yet. Except for Dark Knight, Harry Potter and Spider-man is probably my favorite and rest of them are wayyy bottom.

I can't believe I'm the first vote for Spider-Man.

I enjoyed The Dark Knight, but think it gets much more praise than it deserves.

I pick ESP-III just because those saber battle are bad-ass and I love it.
But second pick would be all of The Lord of the Rings films not just one!

TDK with RotK in close second. The others on that list are pretty terrible (it sucks the only good Spider-man didn't make the list.)

There are only 2 movies on that list that I would consider, and TDK beats Spiderman.

I went TDK eventhough this year isn't over yet and who knows how well Max Payne will do.

Did Shrek 2 really outgross Spidey 2?

of the one's listed: Lord of the Rings: Return of the King, but personally 'Two Towers' (Extended Edition) is the best IMO.

Given my test of "If all these were on TV right now and I could only watch one", I'd go with Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. I had never even read any of the books or seen any of the movies until this summer, when ABC Family had a marathon of the movies July 4th weekend and it rained here the whole time. I thoroughly enjoyed the movies and liked the first two the best and I'm now going back and actually reading the books. Although coming in close would be The Dark Knight. Close after that would be Pirates of the Caribean: Curse of the Black Pearl if it was a choice- I liked it much better than either of the sequels, and Batman Begins if they were listed.

I want to say ROTK but the 12 endings left a really bad taste in my mouth so I went with TDK.

Dark Knight was awesome, but I don't think anything can ever top the conclusion to the Lord Of The Rings - it was such an emotional crescendo.

Dark Knight, not just because it is the most recent movie in my mind, it kicked ass.
