80. "Murderball" (2005)
Whether it's explaining the little-known sport of quad rugby or exploring the lives of its players, this doc hits just the right notes, and with the appropriate force.
79. "Kung Fu Hustle" (2004)
Stephen Chow's chopsocky comedy earns a place just for Qiu Yuen as the chain-smoking, super-powered landlady from hell.
78. "The Aviator" (2004)
It wasn't Martin Scorsese's best decade, but it's hard to punch a hole in his finely crafted Howard Hughes biopic.
77. "The Prestige" (2006)
Another exquisitely twisted narrative from Christopher Nolan, this one boasting the singular attraction of David Bowie as scientific innovator and cult figure Nikola Tesla.
76. "Team America: World Police" (2004)
75. "The Queen" (2006)
Stephen Frears' portrait of out-of-touch royalty, a prime minister who's still wet behind the ears, and the backroom politicking between them in response to national tragedy manages to be both respectfully formal and remarkably intimate.
74. "Brick" (2006)
Between a look that belies its low-budget origins and a screenplay that betrays a genuine love of the English language, Rian Johnson's debut is one of the decade's most auspicious.
73. "Millions" (2005)
Danny Boyle made three very good films over the past 10 years, and even took a Best Picture Oscar for "Slumdog Millionaire," but the one with the biggest piece of my heart is this sweet, kid-friendly caper film with a strange but firm base of faith.
72. "Best in Show" (2000)
While it's got some competition from "Waiting for Guffman," this is the best movie to come out of Christopher Guest's improv'ed experiments with big, talented casts.
71. The "Kill Bill" films (2003, 2004)
Apart, the two halves of this revenge story are terrific films, but the sum of their parts epitomizes the word "epic" in scope, emotion and body count.
