Donnie Darko is IMDb's second top movie of the last decade

I think this is worthy of a special emergency post.... IMDb is celebrating its ten years of existence by looking back over its most popular and searched for movies and stars over that decade. With thanks to Deadline, just take a look at the list of the Top 10 Films of the Last Ten Years (judged from the IMDbPro MOVIEmeter ratings).

1. The Dark Knight
2. Donnie Darko
3. Pulp Fiction
4. The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring
5. The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King
6. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
7. Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
8. Twilight
9. Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
10. The Godfather
So, Donnie Darko, one of Jake Gyllenhaal's lowest budgeted of movies, filmed over what is quite possibly the shortest amount of time (under a month), is there at number two on the list. I think Richard Kelly, Jake and Drew Barrymore deserve a congratulatory champagne shower for that. And how good it is to see a Heath Ledger film at the top.

Evening all! This does make me very happy :) Here's hoping that Jake makes another movie (historical costume drama or scifi please) that makes the next decade's list.

Daniela said...

I watched almost all movies on this list ,except the Godfather, I was very happy that DD is one of my favorite movies with Jake, what would The Dark Knight without Heath.

I want this new decade he makes a villain, that makes people forget that the actor who plays Jake is

Good news about Donnie Darko (and I loved seeing a Heath movie next to a Jake movie...all that is needed to make it perfect would be BBM)! Sorry...just drifting a bit here.

Thanks for the emergency post...here's to maybe new movie news coming soon!! *positive thoughts*

:-)

YAY for Donnie Darko, YAY for Jake!

Please, let's have more movie news coming soon... *positive thoughts*
historical costume drama, scifi, POP sequel... (my optimism knows no bounds)

Aileen said...

Great, though it's not surprising that a Jake movie is in the top:). I wish him many new and interesting projects:). And I agree with Daniela, he should play a villain. I'd love to see evil Jake :)))

Wet Dark and Wild said...

Hi Daniela! I like the idea of a villain role :)

I can understand the drifting, BBMISwear :-) Positive thoughts indeed!

We must all keep our fingers crossed, Susan :)

Hi there Aileen - I hope for the best over the next decade.

How so? New movie?

mermon said...

Isn't it wonderful? Heath and Jake on first two places, together again.
I am so happy for Richard Kelly who appeared on Twitter to share that news with us. He deserves that and I wish more successes for him.
DD is my no 2 favourite movie ever, together with Avatar, right after BBM! I wish BBM was on the list as well...
I can't convince myself to picture Jake as villain. Let's hope for a great next movie.

Wet Dark and Wild said...

Hi Daniela! BBMISwear is just hoping for movie news soon, as are we all :)

Hi Mermon! Donnie Darko is in my top three Jake movies. I'm really proud of its success and it's great that Jake and Richard feel this too.

Daniela said...

I thought he knew something haha

Wet Dark and Wild said...

That would've been good! And BBMISwear's a she by the way :)

Wonderful news! I'm so glad to hear it!!
Congratulations to Jake and Heath!!
I was going to see Jarhead today, but now I feel like watching DD!


The idea of a villain role is very interesting! I would love to see Jake plays the villain when he gets old more.
:)

Hope for a great next movie and amazing next decade!

Wet Dark and Wild said...

Morning Mayumintolor!

Hope you all have a good day :D

MrsJakobGyllenhaal said...

Very much deserved!The more I see the movie, the more I like it.

I seriously hope that in one of the interviews Jake will most likely do for the Berlinale we hear something about new projects.

BBMISwear said...

What, no new news yet? Ha Ha - just kidding! Sorry if I made it sound like I had some scoop on new movie news (nope...just as WDW said...I'm just trying to think positive). Maybe we'll get lucky and once news starts flowing in it will be regarding 3 new projects and not just one. Maybe acting in a movie, directing a movie and doing a play. Hey, one can dream, right?!

Hope everyone's having a good day! :-)

Any news on the video with Daniel Wolfe? I'm getting impatient...I need a dose of Jake, preferably a two hour dose but anything will do.
I want Jake to be on the road promoting something, he's so charming on talk shows.
Jake, come out of your shell, we want you in the spotlight!

I heard Jake is spinning in NY again. He should be leaving for Berlin soon

congrats to Heath and Jake, both movies deserved to be at the top of the list
