FlickChart's Top 20 Films of the Decade as Decided by Fans
Hopefully most of you have already discovered the brilliantly addictive movie ranking website FlickChart located at FlickChart.com. If you haven't ever been there, check it out and sign up. The concept is simple: it shows you two movies and you choose which one you like more. In theory, with enough rankings, you'll organize a list of your all-time favorites. FlickChart took the data they've collected so far and put together a list of the Top 20 Films of the decade as decided by the 40,000 users, which skew more towards fans than critics, who have been ranking films since they started a few months ago. Read on to find out what they are!

I know this list is going to be controversial, but so be it. It's purely a fanboy list and there's nothing wrong with that. In fact, I'm satisfied with almost all of these movies on here (so maybe I'm a fanboy). It's missing a few big ones like There Will be Blood and Pan's Labyrinth, but don't forget that the way their rankings work, it usually comes down to a heat-of-the-moment decision (when there are two exceptional films) that is based more on what you feel like watching that instant, rather than what you really think is the better movie (critically). Despite all that, though, this list still does remind me of so many great movies from this decade.
