Best Movie Scenes of the 2000s by Dan Calvisi

Great lines. Great performances. Great payoffs.

Huge laughs. Crocodile tears.

This is why we love to go to the movies. These scenes are what is best about the movies.

The greatest siege battle ever put on film.

My favorite scene about making music.

A moment that I think about every time I go to the gym.

The most hilarious child choreography ever.

The most ridiculous thing ever done with a grocery cart.

The scenes on this list will never fail to inspire me. If there is any doubt that this was a great decade for film, one only needs to watch these clips to see the truth.

[Note: Clips not available for every scene.  I’m working on it.]
