I was listening to Bill Simmons' podcast on the way to work today and he had Chris Connelly on. They raised a pretty intriguing question: We're nearly the end of the first decade of the new millennium (yes, I know it technically goes from '01-'10, but lets pretend it goes from '00-'09). So what's been the most significant, most culturally important movie of the decade. Let's get this straight: it's NOT the best movie, it's NOT your favorite movie, and NOT the most poignant. It's just the one that people will TALK ABOUT for years to come-- something everyone has seen and will remember. Something that everyone quotes and recognizes quotes from. So in the '90s it's probably be "The Silence of the Lambs", "Shawshank Redemption", "The Matrix", or something of the sort. Simmons first said "Almost Famous" after considering "Gladiator", but then later changed it to "Dark Knight". I realized that I can't decide yet. I think it's either "Brokeback Mountain", "Gladiator", or "Dark Knight". Your suggestions?
