Here’s how it works!
Our staff and our readers were asked to send me a list of their 25 favorite Films of the 2000s (2000-2009). 38 ballots were received, and the movies were ranked on a point system allowing 25 points for a #1 choice, 24 for a #2, and all the way down to 1 point for #25. The points were added up, and what follows are the selections.
Tiebreakers work like such: If two movies have equal pointage (and neither got a number 1 vote), the movie that appeared on the most lists ranks higher. If those characters appeared on the same amount of lists, I went with whatever ranked highest on the individual list. A character that was someone’s #4 beats another person’s #6, for example. And then if they still were tied I just picked one so shut up.
We will be posting 10 films a day for the entire week, culminating in the top 10 being revealed on Friday.
The countdown begins now!
“Maybe I’ll just sit here and bleed at you.”
50. Brick – (2006) – 74 points
(7 of 38 lists. Highest ranking #4 – Greg W)
It really pleased me to see this little movie make the top 50. A brilliant detective yarn using characters and dialogue so hard-boiled you could bounce them off a sidewalk. The unique idea of setting a film noir in a high school works so well. I feel this is essential viewing for film noir buffs and anyone who is a fan of innovative and original cinema.
