    I'll have to think about this one.

    Curious what other people think.

    Superbad or the Hangover. Surely not epic like the Star Wars movies, or Back to the Future, but both were good in their own way.

    If we have to single out funny movies because they are clearly a different cut of film, I must say 8 mile or Gran Torino. But then I'm being biased because they were filmed in Michigan.

    Maybe Fight Club?

    Fight Club was actually made in 1999, but if you only saw it this decade, then I reckon it counts.

    I don't see many movies, so I haven't seen most of what's out there, but for me it was Slumdog Millionaire, by a considerable distance. I haven't watched it a second time yet, just because of the investment of time and emotion that I know it would require.

    Tough, in large part because the last two decades have been so punk, compared to previous.

    Brick (2005) and Layer Cake (2004) are a couple of my all-time favorites.

    Brick: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0393109/
    Layer Cake: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0375912/

    Brick was great. So was The Lookout.
