My Top 21-100 Movies for The First 10 Years of 2000

Here is a continuation of my previous list of top movies. The rankings after 40 become kind of pointless, but I did it anyway. I didn’t comment on these movies like the top 20. It’s too time consuming. If there are questions I get in the comments here or elsewhere, I’ll be sure to share my thoughts. Also, there are a lot of movies I haven’t seen. If you see a movie not on this list or the previous one that you think I should have on here, please leave the name in the comments. Chances are I never saw it. Maybe that was intentional, maybe not.

A side note: One cool thing I was able to do for this list was write a small Python script to get all the movie info via the Netflix API. Everything was auto-generated. I provided my ranked list and the script did the rest. Click on an image for the Netflix page for that flick. For each item in the list, you can also add the disc to your Netflix queue with the link under the title, see the Netflix users’ rating, and know if it’s available on Blu-ray as of the publish date of this post.
