IMDb Top Rate Films of the New Millenium

More Top lists of the not just decade here, but the new Millenium although technically for the time being that encompasses the same period of time. It's an interesting list - the IMDb Power of Film: Top Rated Films of the New Millennium, the url rotates between different lists overtime so I've added the criteria and responses below.

Criteria: "What hath this new century wrought? In our latest Power of Film feature, we chronicle the The Top Rated Films of the New Millennium, looking at the 15 films made since 2000 that our users have rated as the best of the new millennium. Despite the prevalence of a certain trilogy and a particular comic book hero, there are surprises to be had, from independent films to non-English language films to even two animated favorites, one from just this year."

15. Requiem for a Dream (2000)
14. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2004)
13. Spirited Away (2001)
12. The Pianist (2002)
11. The Lives of Others (2006)
10. The Departed (2006)
9. Amélie (2001)
8. WALL·E (2008)
7. The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers (2002)
6. Memento (2000)
5. Up (2009)
4. The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring (2001)
3. City of God (2002)
2. The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King (2003)
1. The Dark Knight (2008)

I can live with that list. I would have thought imdb would have been filled with things like Transformers and Harry Potter so I'm quite surprised that this list actually works.

I'm actually a little surprized there are no Harry Potters - could be that there are too many that is split the votes, but overall (even though I love them) they aren't as widely accepted as stuff like Lord of the Rings.. .which is weird.

It's a nice way to get a sense of the trends though, and pop culture.
