Nothing but respect for the man, generally, but any top ten list that includes Spielberg’s ridiculously horrendous War of the Worlds remake that doesn’t involve the words “Worst,” “Most Depressing,” or “Corporate Artlessness” makes absolutely ZERO sense to me.

For the last two months, my friend Tim and I — the two dopey overgrown Mattoon movie kids — have been revealing and discussing our Top 10 Movies Of The Decade. Yes, yes, the decade ended almost three months ago, but Grierson and I like to be thorough. We finally finished yesterday. Here are our top 10s.
