    Battle of Films: 1997-2006

    Pasag and I thought such a battle could be fun.

    Each person can nominate 10 movies and second 5 movies (max). After we get 96 movies, we start off with the battle.

    Hope it will be fun..

    Actually a reasonable sort of battle idea. Knocks out a lot of the obvious winners, and leaves an open field. Not all that many films I really love from the last 10 years, but there's plenty of good ones. Trying to think of some good ones not mentioned yet.

    I'll nominate:
    Memento
    Chopper
    Lantana
    Cube
    Wag The Dog


    I'll also second Fight Club, American Psycho and Sin City.

    There isn't a lot of consensus reached on whether sequels etc should be taken as 1 entry or separately. We are going with 1 entry here so that there can be more movies which can enter into the fray.

    I will second

    Good Night and Good Luck
    Hotel Rwanda
    Munich
