2003 in Film

The early 00ts were an exciting time in mainstream moviedom. Film technology had reached the point that fantasy could be translated to the big screen in a convincing fashion. More than ever, movies were being launched with a multiple installment mentality (which is exciting and troublesome at the same time.) 2003 saw the end of two important trilogies in the Tolkien and Matrix efforts, that showed how well and how utterly terrible that can be done. Around the last few slots on this top ten list there were some tough decisions to be made. Revisiting some of these may change things in the future. Secondhand Lions, Matchstick Men, and the second Matrix films might need to be re-watched at some point.

6. Les Triplettes de Bellville
