These are the beginning of the 21st century’s legacy of motion pictures.
There are many great movies I’ve left off of this list. It is highly biased, and I haven’t seen every movie released in the decade. But it’s my picks. These are the ones that left the biggest impression on myself. These are the ones that I’d hope end up meaning the most to the films of the future.
I decided on 30 because it felt right. These 30 stand above the rest.
I hope that there are some you weren’t familiar with before, because it’s my strongest recommendation that you get familiar with them.
