Top 10 Movies 2000-2009

Here it is.  My Top Ten Movies of the Oughts.   I’ve been hemming and hawing over how to piece together this list.  What to add, what to remove, what to try and pull my personal grievances and forgiveness away from in an attempt to look at them all objectively.  There were many hard decisions made. Movies that I feel particular personal guilt over excluding, but I removed none-the-less are: Primer, Brick, The Host, Psycho Beach Party, Good Night, And Good Luck,  Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, Sunshine, The Way of the Gun, Man On Wire, and Casino Royale.

In the end, I don’t know where I, Videodrome, or “the pictures” would be without this group of movies.  I felt it necessary to provide a list that was in keeping with the heart of the radio show, and what we try and do week in and week out.  Tell the truth, be critical, and mostly be right.  Mostly.

If you have some thoughts or grievances, feel free to send a message to and I’ll do my best to thank you or explain to you why you’re wrong.
