Ten best scifi/fantasy movies of the past ten years

Filed under: Movies, Odds — Stephen L. Thompson @ 6:33 pm

Everywhere you look this time of year you see lists for The Best/Worst Whatever for the Past Year/Decade. So, I might as well get in on it as well.

This is my list (in order of release date) of what I consider the ten best scifi/fantasy movies of the past ten years. The main difference between the movies listed here and some big name movies is that these have coherent plots. For me, that means far more than flashy special effects.

Donnie Darko – 2001

Harry Potter – 2001-2010

(I lumped all of these together because it’s easier than trying to pick one. I also tried to find something that had all the trailers together, but I couldn’t find a good version, so this is just the trailer for the first movie. How far they have come.)

Lord of the Rings – 2001-2003

(Same as with the Harry Potter movies.)

Spider-Man 2 – 2004

(This one it is easier to pick one of the three movies as better.)

Serenity – 2005

V for Vendetta – 2006

Children of Men – 2006

Iron Man – 2008

(The second movie was good, but I think this one is better.)

Watchmen – 2009

District 9 – 2009
