Apart from Amelie, I would find it hard to leave out any of these as significant films of the past ten years although clearly some are greater than others.

Gasp! You’d leave Amelie out?
I’d have Dark Night and some of the The Lord of The Rings out of the top 10, oh and Departed (substandard remake) for a start.
The Departed isn’t as good as Infernal Affairs or Scorcese’s very best work (Taxi Driver, Goodfellas) but I wouldn’t describe it as ‘substandard’.
