Temporal Top Ten – 2001


2001
top ten

Number of movies seen from this year – 130
Number of movies reviewed – 99 (including 8 Encore Reviews)

2001 was a year where there were a few amazing movies, but most of the released movies were just good, but not great.

It was the year that two very long lucrative and entertaining movie franchises based on a best selling book series began.  Both the first Harry Potter and LOTR movies were just the tip of the iceberg when it came to telling those two stories.

My top ten list features movies from numerous genres and only two of the 5 Best Picture nominees made the cut.

Two of other three Gosford Park and In the Bedroom were very good movies, but still fall a bit short IMHO of being deemed among the Best movies of the year.  I am not at all a fan of Moulin Rouge and when I saw it in Nov 2013, I was severely disappointed that it was even nominated.

Choosing my #1 was a bit difficult because I had to choose between a complete story and an incomplete storyline.

Ultimately, I went with the complete story.

#1-6 all are considered among my favorites of their respective genres

Updated 1 Mar 2017 – Sobibor, 14 October 1943, 4PM has now been added as my #4, bumping all other down a slot

Updated 3 Mar 2019 – Walt: The Man Behind the Myth has now been added as my #7, bumping all other down a slot
