My Top 20 Films of 2000-2009: Part 2 (#10-1)

10. Brokeback Mountain

A touching tale of love that explores deeply the lives of two men barricaded by the society that they live in. This film is moving in almost every single aspect and features fantastic performances from Jake Gyllenhaal and Heath Ledger. This film packs a lot of emotion into it whilst also having stunning cinematography and beautiful scenery.

My Top 20 Films of 2000-2009: Part 1 (#20-11)

20. Shaun of the Dead

I watched Hot Fuzz before I laid eyes on this film, and to be quite honest, I wasn't very impressed. I thought that it tried far too hard, and had characters that lacked likability. So, after hearing the humor in this film was similar to that of Hot Fuzz, I wasn't really looking forward to it. But from my point of view, the humor in Shaun of the Dead is nothing like that of Hot Fuzz. I find it to be a lot more witty, a lot more subtle, and to be honest, a lot funnier than that of Hot Fuzz. This film is a great comedy, and for me, it's one of those films that you can just never get bored of watching.
