#1 - Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring (2001), The Two Towers (2002), and Return of the King (2003)
Not one movie.... THREE!!!!
There was no doubt in my mind that when I started writing this list that these movies would be #1. I just love what Peter Jackson did here with these movies, they are not only well acted and jaw dropping cool looking but they have some real intense action that keeps you glued to the screen the entire run time (which was pretty long). These movies also work out really well with the extended cuts on dvd, the dvds really add a lot to the movies and make them an overall better trilogy. Since the re-release of the Star Wars prequels LOTR is now tied with Star Wars as my favorite series of films ever. These movies were so good that each one was nominated for best picture, that alone is mind blowing! I loved just every movie the same, they all really are well done pictures, in reality they were all filmed at the same time so they play out well as one gigantic movie, but breaking them up also works well and just made me have to wait another year to see how the movie unfolded. If I had to say I had a favorite it would be ROTK, because the movie did not disappoint in giving me the climax I so desired, it fact I would say it was my favorite film ending of the decade. What happened here with all three movies will most likely never happen again, and not to honor these movies as #1 would be an injustice to movie making in general. So there ya go my #1 movie of the decade. I hope you enjoyed this list!
