The 2000s decade was a very significant decade for me; rather the end of the decade was significant. This was the decade in which I watched Forrest Gump for the very first time. It had such a big impact on me that I knew I wanted to watch it again and again. Afterwards, I started watching more movies, and realizing how they can serve a bigger purpose than just entertain viewers. Once James Cameron’s Avatar came out, not only did I began giving my two cents on movies to my family, but on a website called YouTube.
I’m here to give you a list of my top 30 favorite films of the 2000s decade. This list is based on my own opinion. If any of you do not agree with any of my picks, that’s fine. But don’t be mean about it. Let’s begin, shall we?

Why I love Mel Brooks films so much is simple, the complexity of the humor. He embraces the low-brow humor, the fart jokes and crude humor, and he also embraces the high-brow humor, poking fun at history or art or literature. Looking at other satirical/parody movies, they rarely embrace both. They usually just embrace the low-brow humor as it is easier to keep people engaged. For me, Brooks’ humor is reminiscent of Shakespeare. He writes for everyone. For the intellectual, who enjoys jokes about Homer, Shakespeare, politics, social issues, etc. For those who are still learning or have no interest in that humor,, there are still the sex jokes, fart jokes, and slapstick comedy.

While the 2000s decade had a lot of great movies, it also had its fair share of bad movies. There were A LOT of them that stood out as dreadfully awful. Even if I remember seeing them as a child and ended up liking them, I would sit back and be like, “What was I even thinking?”. Keep in mind that I haven’t every single bad movie that came out in the decade, so don’t ask, “But you forgot *add movie title here*!” Without further ado, this is my list of the top 50 worst movies of the 2000s in alphabetical order. If you don’t agree with any of my picks, that’s fine. This list is only based on my own opinion. Here we go!
The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl (2005)
Agent Cody Banks (2003)
Alvin and the Chipmunks (2007)
Anger Management (2003)
The Benchwarmers (2006)

Who could ever forget the soundtrack. Go ahead and click. You know you want to. It will lend atmosphere as you read on.
The incredible success of Star Wars–it received seven Oscars, and earned $461 million in U.S. ticket sales and a gross of close to $800 million worldwide–began with an extensive, coordinated marketing push by Lucas and his studio, 20th Century Fox, months before the movie’s release date. “It wasn’t like a movie opening,” actress Carrie Fisher, who played rebel leader Princess Leia, later told Time magazine. “It was like an earthquake.” Beginning with–in Fisher’s words–“a new order of geeks, enthusiastic young people with sleeping bags,” the anticipation of a revolutionary movie-watching experience spread like wildfire, causing long lines in front of movie theaters across the…
