Post-2000 Masterpieces?

edited January 10 in Movies

You guys have any ideas on post-1999 movies that match that bar classic films of the 70’s, 80’s & 90s set. These eras kinda fill up almost any ‘all time’ list. And yeah of course I understand why but i’m not talking about ranking anything here.. I just wonder what people might consider a modern masterpiece of that caliber nearly 20 years into the millennium. 

American Psycho, Memento, Lost in Translation, Fellowship of the Ring, City of God, The Dark Knight, There Will Be Blood, No Country for Old Men, Inglorious Basterds, The Social Network, The Big Short, Moonlight, Blade Runner 2049.. A few flicks I have no problems putting on a millennial “Fuck the AFI” top whatever list. What else you got?

    I'll add my favorite: In the Mood for Love.

    I'm trying to not repeat others; these haven't been mentioned yet:
    Audition
    Oldboy
    4 Months, 3 Weeks & 2 Days
    Amélie
    25th Hour

    Also, I really want to add Ratatouille and Ocean's 11. I think they're classics.

    @pavlovsbell Just to clarify, that's the original Oldboy right? Not the useless Spike Lee redo from 2013?

    For sure. I didn't even see the Spike Lee version.

  • Son of Saul - that’s one of those great one timers for me, concentration camp POV is not pleasant.

    Coming in with the 21st century horror classics: The Devil's Rejects, Jennifer's Body (yes, the one with Megan Fox), Hostel, Martyrs (the original, not the American remake), def agree with @pavlovsbell about Audition.

    What's not a 21st century classic: any of the Paranormal Activity or Conjuring flicks. Ghost/haunting stories were never that interesting to begin with, and I think future movie fans will wonder why we liked found footage movies so much.

    You guys are adding some really good ones.  All of you.

    I thought the same--the only one I'd call a classic is Basterds. Kill Bill would have a better case if anyone'd had the stones to tell QT he needed to edit that shit way down.
