Ummm, I believe he was referring to Shakti's lists, which included everything but SHREK 2.

2007, mostly for the non-US releases. Any year that can dish out Lust, Caution, The Diving Bell and the Butterfly, The Orphanage, Persepolis, and The Lives of Others (US limited) in the same span gets my vote.

It's not just the greatest year of the decade, it's one of the greatest years of all-time.
How are you trying to use Across the Universe to support your argument? Seriously?

2001 - Solely because it's the year that Mulholland Dr. came out.

Shame on the people posting the year 2000 lists without Almost Famous.
