    i really really loved this.
    although obviously missing some great films.
    (like no almodovar and no moulin rouge and no pianist? can you talk about this decade without mentioning them?)

    Apart for Lost In Translation, it’s jarring the lack of Focus Features especially those that got Best Pic nominations.

    No matter. Still a great job from whoever did it.

    Good point, RyanT. In fact, I might be wrong, but I’m pretty sure that Capote and Munich both made it in, but not Brokeback Mountain. Munich I’ll give you–I happen to think it rather misunderstood and brilliant. But Capote? Over Brokeback? Really?

    I wanted to see Into the Wild show up, but oh well. Still, an AMAZING montage.

    A good number of those movies would be in my Top 100, if I ever got around to making such a list.

    I didn’t see anything from Minority Report.

    Here’s a list I made at my blog of the movies I spotted in the montage:

    I don’t know if I liked the first two song choices, don’t think they worked too well.

    I would have been cool if they included all the Best Picture winners, like I don’t remember seeing Slumdog or No Country in there – or even Lord of The Rings.

    Very nice. Love a well edited montage.

    This is a great glimpse… I repeat GLIMPSE of the many different (though not necessarily great) films of the last decade! Very well done! I think a full montage done like this with ALL the great and high-profile films of the decade could almost be an hour long!

    Actually, jim, both lord of the rings and no country were in there, i didnt spot slumdog either though.

    Zac, Paulina added a few on your blog, but here are a couple more:

    After The Descent (which is correct) is Sexy Beast.

    After Ali is Dawn of the Dead.

    Great montage.
    But obviously, Brokeback, Moulin Rouge and Crouching Tiger should definitely have been there.

    Excellent montage. I realize they can’t put a clip of every movie in there, but I thought it was glaring that not a single Harry Potter clip was in there. All six existing movies were released in the decade.

    What a great montage! Perfect editing and some nice shots of some films that I loved.

    I feel like making my own montage of the decade now. This video inspired me.

    I absolutely LOVE the juxtaposition of the first line of “Mad World” with the camera panning over the Crazy 88s.

    Thanks for the help, guys. There’s only 4 that I can’t identify.

    I liked the transition from the girl in the swimming pool to Chuck Noland’s spear in the water.

    No CHILDREN OF MEN, but I’ll take a montage that gives time for SNATCH and AMERICAN PSyCHO, two films that might as well have come out 1000 years ago.

    I can’t identify these clips:

    After “Narc” (with the crazy wolf things)
    After “Planet Terror” (though I’m guessing it’s “Swimming Pool”)
    After “Mystic River” (no fucking clue)

    I’m so embarrassed that I didn’t recognise so many clips from the featured films – obviously I’ve got some serious catching up to do!

    Overall, some quirky and intriguing choices (as well as omissions)

    Adam, after Narc is ‘Dog Soldiers.’

    Thanks to my fellow movie buffs for helping me out. The only clip that hasn’t been identified is the one after Mystic River.

    Thanks JDH and Adam.

    Could someone help me out with the film after In the Bedroom?

    It’s people with rabbit heads in a hotel lobby.
