This is the same list as seen on www.metacritic.com/feature/the-best-movies-of-the-decade
From metacritic's page :
"Our film staff has been collecting reviews for each week's new theatrical releases since the fall of 1999, and, as a result, we have a nearly complete database of films from the past decade: certainly every major release from 2000-09, and virtually all minor releases, including obscure titles that barely made an appearance on the big screen.
As a result, the various lists below represent the best the decade had to offer -- at least in the eyes of top professional film critics. Below, we look at the best movies from the past ten years."
The 21st Century's Most Acclaimed Films serves as an ongoing companion to our listing of the 1,000 Greatest Films of all time.
The 1,000 Greatest Films list, by nature of the sources used and formulas applied - and we believe quite rightly so - leans towards films that have so far stood the so-called ‘test of time'. This listing therefore attempts to highlight and honour this century's most critically revered films and act as a sort of 'resting bay' for many great films that will, no doubt, eventually find a spot within the 1,000 Greatest Films part of our website.
This is our seventh 21st Century listing, and despite calls from followers to increase it to 300-and-beyond, for now it once again encompasses 250 films. It is primarily based on critics' year-end lists (from 2000 to 2011), plus it also takes into account mentions given to any films from 2000 onwards that show up in critics' all-time-best-of lists (that are also used for the compilation of our 1,000 Greatest Films list). Additionally, it also incorporates many best-of-the-decade lists from 2010.
