Blogfest: I Love The Noughties

Almost forgot about this blogfest. Visit for full details.

Here are some recommendations of films throughout the noughties.

2000 - O'Brother Where Art Thou. It's the hilarious jailbreak comedy that proves George Clooney can act.

2001 - Brotherhood Of The Wolf. My all time favourite, you can find the trailer elsewhere here.

2002 - The Count Of Monte Cristo. The classic gets a cool update.

2003 - Bad Santa - Billy Bob Thornton playing the type of Santa you wouldn't take your kid to see.

2004 - Hidalgo - Great underdog tale of a Mustang competing in a long distance race. Trailer is elsewhere here.

2005 - Ong Bak. Brilliant martial arts film.

2006 - Running Scared - Paul Walker tries to track down a missing gun in this cool thriller.

2007 - Mr Brooks. Kevin Costner in the unlikely role of serial killer. Brilliant.

2008 - Rambo - Sly Stallone proves he's still got it.

2009 - Avatar - It's Dances With Wolves all over again but an amazing spectacle.

A decade of cool films, try to check them out if you haven't already seen them.


  1. Oh, I LOVE Brotherhood of the Wolf and The Count of Monte Cristo. In fact, I was just watching The Count of Monte Cristo this afternoon.

  2. Two top movies MJ, thanks for stopping by.

  3. Count of Monte Cristo was a great movie. Really liked all of the actors. And Brotherhood of the Wolf was stylish and in a category all its own.

  4. Clooney was great in O'Brother Where Art Thou. I enjoyed it so much I went out and bought the sound track, started listening to bluegrass music and watching vids of the Peasall Sisters.

  5. O Brother Where Art Thou - GREAT movie! I should have thought of that one. Nice list.

  6. I love Hidalgo - can still watch it over and over again.

    Great list.

  7. Thanks Guys, good to know that some of my picks are popular.

  8. I thought the same thing about Avatar. Dances with wolves meets The White Dragon :) Was still a good movie for the special effects. I didn't see it in 3D; was bad enough when things jumped out in regular filming. I nearly came out of my seat when the first big personnel carrier burst across the screen and nearly ran him over :)

    I had forgotten Hidalgo. It is one the movies I put in consistently just to feel a little hope in the world.


  9. Hidalgo was a feel good film Donna. I actually went back to the cinema to catch the Avatar special edition in 3d after seeing the regular one in 2d. It was better but not by much.


Let me know what you think. I value all comments and fully intend to reply.
