Re: 5 favorite movies, of the last 5 years?

Not considering any documentaries (which I tend to judge separately) or anything released this year since I mostly watch films on video. So here are five among of my favorites from 2007-2010:

Rachel Getting Married
Michael Clayton
The Messenger
The Social Network
Up in the Air

(The Kids Are Alright and The Lives of Others were the two I weeded out from my haphazard final cut).

Trick R Treat and The Mist are both great picks. Both instant classics for me.

Inglourious Basterds (2009)
Summer Wars (2009/Japan/animated)
Red Cliff (2009/HK-China/North American cut)
The Bank Job (2008)
Transformers (2007)

(It's a damn shame I had to leave Yo Yo Girl Cop and Kung Fu Chefs off this list, but they would have been nos. 6 & 7.)

Re: 5 favorite movies, of the last 5 years?

1. Super 8
2. Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows II

That's what I saw. Everything else was either total crap or just a remake of something done much better years ago...even though the people that made the movie ignore that fact.

You really don't watch a lot do you? Or...maybe those are just your 2 favorites? Favorites don't necessarily have to mean the best.

-------------------------

No particular order...these are my favorite 5 from the past 5 years:

District 9
Red Cliff
Pan's Labyrinth
Inglorious Basterds
Moon
