Brad Roemer Discusses the Best Movies of the 2000s


With a new millennium comes new technology, and Brad Roemer Real Estate couldn’t be happier for this upgrade in video effects. The only bad thing about doing this list so soon is that it may be a little too early to tell if they will stand the test of time. So many movies from years past seemed great in their time, but as the years marched on, they lost their appeal. There are some movies that will be classics for thousands of years, provided we can keep updating their format for future generations to enjoy, but there are also those that will tend to fall out of favor as the later generation ceases to exist. For now, we can only say these movies are still great nearly twenty years after their release.

Too Soon to Tell Two-Thousands

The bias toward older films is understandable, as they have withstood the test of time. When it comes to movies less than 20 years old, people and lists like this remain hopeful but are not hell-bent on saying these will be the next movie classics. Join us now for what we feel may surpass the ages and go down in movie history as the greatest movies of the 2000s.

  1. Lord of the Rings – We are not going to pin it down to just one of the movies, as they were all great in their own right. If you have not seen these movies, you are going to need to set aside a significant chunk of time as they are three hours or more, each! If you like medieval movies, these movies are made for you.
  2. Avatar – Another great movie from the mind of Stephen Spielberg. This is similar in nature to a Matrix type movie where the cast plugs into a system and they are able to walk around and interact with the occupants of the world. Maybe it is more like The Thirteenth Floor. At any rate, it is a marvelous movie with arguably the best computer graphics of the 2000s.
  3. A Beautiful Mind – This story of John Nash is based on his real life. He was a man with a brilliant mind but had paranoid schizophrenia. He adapted over time to block out the people that he “saw” but they were always there. He just chose to move them out of his mind and not interact with them. He finds love and his wife stays with him during what could only be called the worst of times. The real-life version didn’t, but it makes for a better movie when she does.
  4. Harry Potter – We really wish that we could pick one of these movies for you to watch, but we really can’t. As with Lord of the Rings, you are going to need to set aside a large amount of time to watch the complete series. The truth is after you watch the first one you will be hooked.


While Brad Roemer only gave us these four titles, there are a bunch of movies that are within the list. Lord of the Rings has three movies included within it, and Harry Potter has eight. So, if you want to get technical, we gave you thirteen movies to watch and you will want to watch them all. So, make some time and watch the best movies of the 2000s.
