The aughts mark an era of great art. Indie rock, for example, started to gain momentum in the music realm while movies exploded with the kind of fresh innovation and creativity that can only come from the dawn of a new millennium. There were duds, for sure. Not all people use Snakes on a Plane as anything else but a joke, and seemingly interesting releases such as Garden State are boring when rewatched today.
We’ve had an additional decade to see which movies struck a chord, whether it’s through phenomenal acting, clever editing, an intoxicating or well-written plot, or more. The first decade of the 21st century was blessed with many iconic, not to mention, nostalgic films. As always, we’ve done our research. Below, we rounded up the best movies of the 2000s to watch this summer and beyond. If you are looking for more films to stream on Amazon Prime, check out our list of the best Amazon Prime movies we found.
