Mutant Variety

(cross-posted at samizdat)

This isn't exactly within the criteria for the site, but i thought it couldn't hurt.

Establishing a list for top films over the decade proved to be more elusive than I expected. If indeed the September 11th attacks were the central event of the decade, we can be sure that an influence was absorbed both in the films of subsequent release, but with our viewing as well. If, however, The Passion of the Christ was the signature event for a reader, then I am afraid to disappoint: none of the films listed feature Kirk Cameron.
