Now that you've all had plenty of opportunity now to bitch, bellyache, moan, complain and, in some cases, file criminal charges against our best films of the decade list, we'll now give a chance to compare and either refile your complaints/criminal charges or at least temper your anger in light of the other Ten Best of the Decade.

Let's start with ours, to refresh your memories:

10. The Royal Tenenbaums
9. Memento
8. O Brother, Where Art Thou?
7. Brokeback Mountain
6. No Country For Old Men
5. Shaun of the Dead
4. There Will Be Blood
3. The Dark Knight
2. Children of Men
1. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

Here is iMDB's Ten Best of the Decade, which is generated by user votes:

10. The Departed
9. Amelie
8. Wall*E
7. The Lord of the Rings: Two Towers
6. Memento
5. Avatar
4. The Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring
3. City of God
2. The Lord of the Rings: Return of the King
1.The Dark Knight

No shortage of LoTR love in that list. And Avatar is based only on 70,000 votes and will likely fall in a few months, but still ... Avatar?

Flickchart is also a user-generated top ten list, and it's similarly geek-heavy:

10. Wall-E
9. Memento
8. No Country for Old Men
7. The Departed
6. Kill Bill, Vol. 1
5. The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers
4. The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King
3. Batman Begins
2. The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring
1. The Dark Knight


Metacritic's Top Ten was also based on user reviews. Here are their best reviewed (wide releases) of the decade:

1. Pan's Labyrinth
2. Ratatouille
3. Spirited Away
4. The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King
5. Sideways
6. WALL-E
7. Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon
8. There Will Be Blood
9. The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring
10. The Queen

Here's Rotten Tomatoes, which are based on Tomatometer critic reviews:

1. Man On Wire
2. Up
3. The Wrestler
4. Finding Nemo
5. The Hurt Locker
6. Let the Right One In
7. Spellbound
8. Chicken Run
9. Murderball
10. The Fog of War

Here's the AV Club's, which I really like:

10. Children of Men
9. The New World
8. Capturing the Friedman's
7. Kill Bill Vol. 1
6. Spirited Away
5. Memento
4. No Country for Old Men
3. There Will Be Blood
2. 25th Hour
1 Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

And finally, here's EW's Owen Gleiberman's, which I really don't like:

10. Casino Royale
9. Lilya-4-Ever
8. Munich
7. Requiem for a Dream
6. Moulin Rouge!
5. Chuck and Buck
4. Gladiator
3. The Century of the Self
2. Sideways
1. Far from Heaven


I'll leave it to you folks to make some sweeping generalities about all of these lists.
