    Of course it’s going to be biased towards general releases, american films and fanboy film – it’s a list created by a collective of online users! (mass population of westernised geeks) Favourite films are going to be those that have been seen by a lot of people and the most widely distributed films are american films. I don’t think you should discredit someones opinion just because their taste in film differs from your own.

    I think it’s a GREAT list and is the best of its kind I’ve seen so far.

    My top 50 of the decade :D

    Part 1

    I hope that it is a little more diverse than this list.

  3. I love it. And I’ve seen them all, something I’ve failed to do with most other “Top of the Decade” lists. It’s fascinating to see how this compares to Rotten Tomatoes or Rolling Stones. I think it also serves as a demographic statement of us Flickchart users (which makes me feel damned old…) Kudos!

    No love for Slumdog Millionaire?

    Is the actual formula used on the charts listed anywhere?

    In the future, a cool feature would be a filter that formulates the top list without putting so much weight on quanitity of people that have seen it (perhaps, filter among users that have seen 1000+ different movies?).

    I mean, given 2 people that have done the same number of rankings, it seems like if a person ranks a movie 50 out of 500 movies, then that holds more weight than some one that ranks it 150 out of 2000. Doesnt seem right.

    Also, since the All Movies filter trends toward popular stuff, people that just come to the site for awhile and never come back to it are proabbly heavily skewing things. Theyll stay around long enough to rank the Batmans and Star Wars, then they leave with a list of 100 movies. How do the lesser known movies of the decade even stand a chance if they never even come up for a large portion of users? so yeah, it might be cool to be able to filter some people out in the overall rankings charts.

    Green Mile was a 1999 movie, Bad Boys 2 shouldnt be on a top 20 list for its year let alone decade, and its Infernal Affairs (not Internal). Theres a lot of other stuff but its hard to tell whether or not some people are being sarcastic.

    /done being an asshole
    //for now

    Um…HELLO!!!??? What about TWILGIHT AND NEW MOON?!
    Oh and the Hangover? Worst site ever!!!

    • minister of pain says:

      twilight sucks. it’s widely turning into a chick flick and say what you want but until the end of the second part bella behaves like a slut. also twilight saga unlike the movies in this list does not give you a feeling that you have seen a good film. hangover is awesome by the way

    No Titanic?!?! ?

  10. Keegan says:

    Decent list. THERE WILL BE BLOOD is easily top 5 for me. ETERNAL SUNSHINE should be higher. GANGS OF NEW YORK, 25TH HOUR, CRASH, THE ASSASSINATION OF JESSE JAMES, MUNICH, etc. THE DARK KNIGHT & LORD OF THE RINGS deserve th highest spots. LOST IN TRANSLATION, INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS, DOWNFALL?

  11. Shit list. No way you think Batman is better than Lord of the Rings.

  12. Liz says:

    What about the Avengers?

  13. Liz says:

    or Avatar?

  14. C.T. Warren says:

    No Potter, No Pirates!? Some people simply refuse to take their lips off Tolkien’s tail, and why all the Batman reboot crap? Comic book movies should be fun and exciting, not over-melodramatic Godfather rip-offs!
