In Bruges and Sexy Beast. 

 

Me, Myself and Irene is the only other one I've seen on the list. It was okay.

 

Would like to see Mulholland Drive.

Mystic River wins easily for me, truly great movie.

 

2nd vote goes for Me, Myself and Irene as it's hilarious.

 

I think In Bruges is decent but overrated and I need a rewatch of TAOfJJ, as I probably didn't appreciate it at the time.

 

Crouching Tiger, nah.

Inside Man is my favourite film in this group. I’m a Spike Lee fan and I love heist films. It’s not a truly great film but it’s one I enjoy rewatching. The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford. Shit title, good film.

I have only seen 2 of these so seems a bit of a stupid vote but plenty of others have done the same I'm sure and my vote is just a bit more important frankly.

Of the two groups so far in the 00s poll I think I've only seen three films, compared to most of them in the 80s and 90s groups. Didn't even bother voting in the group A poll, and just went for Sexy Beast here.

Mystic River and I don't know...the others are all so-so but let's go for Sexy Beast because Kingsley is magnificent in it.

 

Only two I didn't see here.

Mystic River will go out here. 

 

I would have it as my No.1 film of the decade.

I don't rate it quite as highly as you but agree it's immense and a travesty if it goes out, especially in a group as weak as this one.

Mulholland Drive +1. An absolute masterpiece.

 

Tempted by Mystic River as my plus one; if I can't vote for the best neo-noir crime thriller of the 00s directed by Sean Penn, I can at least vote for a pretty decent one starring Sean Penn.

I've seen almost all of these and there are some good films here.

 

In Bruges - it's funny and dark. I like it a lot.

Me, Myself & Irene - surprised it made it this far, it's overwhelmingly not a Carrey classic.

The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford - Not seen. I've got in on DVD and watched 10 minutes once and gave up. Draw your own conclusions.

Sexy Beast - an incredible central performance by Ben Kingsley and Ian McShane is great too. It just all feels a bit inconsequential, like so many British films.

Inside Man - decent popcorn flick

Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon - great film, Ang Lee's second best of the 00s.

Jesse James (criminally underrated film) and In Bruges for me.

 

Mystic River is one of those films I’m not sure if I’ve ever seen (and I love a Clint Eastwood directed film) so I’ll have to give it a watch soon.

In Bruges and Crouching Tiger, Hidden dragon for me. 

 

Haven't seen Mystic River (not a fan of Penn) and thought Jesse James was beautiful (a deakins classic), but preferred Dominik's previous film - chopper. Sexy beast is ace, and Mulholland drive is unlucky.

Went for that and In Bruges 

 

MD is the pinnacle of Lynch’s cinematic career. It’s genius. Mind you, it took me 3 viewings to piece it together and I’m fairly familiar with Lynch’s interplay of the conscious and subconscious. Naomi Watts deserved best actress. Absolutely riveting and fantastic tits.
