The basic idea behind this is that each week you will be given the chance to vote on a series of between 10 and 15 movies from each year of the millennium so far, that's 16 years in total. The reason for no set number of films is because of the way the list is compiled:

1) The top 10 grossing movies of the year, worldwide
2) The winners of Best Picture, Actor, Actress, Supporting Actor and Supporting Actress at that years Oscar ceremony.

It doesn't always happen, but that means we could have 15 films, but obviously the winners might already be in the top 10, or have won multiple (or all) of the above, so the list will be smaller. For example in 2002, Chicago won Best Picture and Best Actress.

Anyway, onto the important stuff. You will vote using the traditional Buzzfestivalen/Melodisfestivalen system, which is as follows:

12 - your favourite movie
10 - your second favourite, and so on
08
06
04
02

The films in contention this week are as follows:

The Lord Of The Rings: The Two Towers
Harry Potter And The Chamber Of Secrets
Spider-Man
Star Wars II: Attack of The Clones
Men In Black II
Died Another Day
Signs
Ice Age
My Big Fat Greek Wedding
Minority Report
Chicago
The Pianist
The Hours
Adaptation

You have until MAY 27TH, 2015 AT 23:59PM to cast your votes via PM TO ME, JOHNKM. Please feel free to discuss the films in this thread, and if you haven't seen any now might be a good time to fill in the gaps in your film knowledge.

Please do PM me your votes this time, it makes the voting in the final most suspenseful and interesting not knowing what people have voted for before.

I have to say this is definitely NOT a banner year in terms of cinema, the worst Harry Potter movie, the worst Star Wars movie, the worst (original) LOTR movie, an average James Bond entry, SIGNS and the original not very good Spider-Man trilogy. The only BEACONS of hope really are MIBII, Chicago and The Hours. I haven't actually SEEN Adaptation but don't feel the urge to change that.

The Hours, The Pianist and MBFGW are among my all time favourite films and I like Two Towers & Chamber of Secrets a lot more than their prequels. I think 2002 was a fairly good year.

Are you actually high??

Harry Potter 4 is an actual TRAVESTY. Worst HP movie ever, up there with Bridge To Teribithia. It's si bad it's in pop culture as bein bad - even called out on Big Bang Theory. They should go back and re-do that steamun poil of shoite.

And Two Towers is the BEST LOTRS AND Hobbit movie OF ALL TAAARM!!!

Amma let you finish Fellowship, but it is!!

Omg I can't even!

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire is the best one though.

The use of the Big Bang Theory in your argument immediately invalidates your argument.

It has low scores from critics + fans, has no depth, has dark colouring, and is just a random splurt of short birty scenes solurted onto the screen with the director sayib, that'll do.

I think Goblet is best too, albeit a close run thing between it and Order Of The Phoenix. In fact I like them all from then on, it's just the first 3 I have issues with.

I wouldn't call holding an 88% rating on Rotten Tomatoes as having 'low scores from critics' angel.gif It held like the fourth best rating of the movies as I was checking through them. Not that I live by what critics have to say.

Goblet of Fire has everything, the tournament is brilliant and I think it's the turning point in where the series becomes even more mature. The next best for me would have to be Deathly Hallows Part 2 and Half-Blood Prince.

I'd probably go for the same top 3 Jahq. To say the first 3 are the ''deepest' baffles me. They are about as deep as a PUDDLE (ok, the first 2 are, Azkabhan is maybe ankle deep) but Goblet (with the death of Cedric and the beginning of the proper darkness) and in particular the bleakness of 7.1 (even if it is a flawed movie) and the forced maturity the leads had to go through automatically makes them deeper and more mature films. Fair enough 7.2 is a bit more style over substance but it's the big finale, it was always going to be over the top and ludicrous, it's almost always the case with every franchise. They want to go out on a BANG, not a whimper.

Phoenix >>> Goblet >>> Deathly Hallows 2 >>> Deathly Hallows 1 >>> Halfblood-Prince>>> Azkhaban>>> Philosopher's Stone >>> Chamber Of Secrets

Azkhaban slayed my life at the time, but it pales in comparison with the latter ones. It remains a 10/10 tho

They're all so damn good this was way too hard. We should have a HP rate tbh smoke.gif

Goblet of Fire is dark for dark sake - the colour scheme of yhe film is disgustingly dark to the point it looks like there's a permanent Scottish storm and a powercut.

The movie is just a hodgepot of short shitty scenes with bo character development and no meaningful interactions between characters unlike the deeper more emotional first 3 and 7.1.

7.2 is the worst though along with 4. Style and mothing else.

4 is almost like a music video its scenes are so short. People confuse book quality with film quality and the movie is pure unadulterated TRASH.

Well at least ONE of the Lord Of The Rings has to be making it through - but I'd say Return has more of a chance than Two Towers, although I'm not sure what it'll be up against in 2003 without checking.

Hope the poorest of the Star Wars films doesn't get through here and I do sorta agree with the average-ness of the franchise entries here, John. I do have quite a bit of choice now though from what I've seen, The Pianist is a fantastic and deeply moving film, hope that can avoid the bottom lot.

I'll be baffled if The Pianist doesn't do well here as it's the clear highlight and one of the greatest/most important films of the 21st Century. Late Polanski but in keeping with a lot of the style that made him so good in his hey-day.

Goblet of Fire's probably my second favorite after Prisoner of Azkaban! Though really I think all of them were various levels of good barring the first one which just seems like a really bad Disney movie these days.

Not a whole lot of standouts here and various weak points in trilogies, I hold out hope for Ice Age though, the constant sequels ruined it completely but I have fond, ten-year old memories of the first one.

I have voted!

I have only seen 6 of them, so I only used them, despite not liking my bottom 2 very much drama.gif I really should get around to watching 'The Pianist' though. Heard nothing but good things about it, although it's a similar situation to 'A Clockwork Orange' for me... and... well... I really didn't like it. So dull. So I'm a bit hesitant to give it a go.
