All right gang, below are my lists for the absolute best and unbelievably worst films of every year since 2000.  Just a polite FYI: this site was inaugurated in July of 2004 and I only began to seriously write film related reviews and articles in January of 2004, so I do not have full-length reviews for any of the films that appear on my lists previous to 2004.  Nevertheless, enjoy and either appreciate them endlessly or debate and attack them mercilessly.

 

For a more thorough analysis of each individual list, please click on the available links when and where applicable.
