The 00s Draft: Snub Draft

post #1 of 31
Thread Starter 

So, the way this will work, is you pick two movies you're annoyed didn't get drafted, for any reason at all. Stuff you wanted but didn't get because of theme, or guilty pleasures, or whatever.


It's arranged by hour to keep the conversation going through the day. You can call it a bonus round if you like, I'm thinking it's more of a miss list. If you missed some times, I'm moving you to the end of the day. No biggie, it's just the snub draft, yo.




Fat Elvis

Paul Allen

Whiteboy Jones

Justin Clark



Nexus -7

Kevin Matchstick




Something Clever







Richard Dickson

Raspberry Leper









Anyawatchin Angel

Judas Booth







Arjen Rudd

Fuzzy Dunlop

"What is Jerusalem? Your holy places lie over the Jewish temple that the Romans pulled down; the Muslim places of worship lie over yours! Which is more holy? The wall? The mosque? The sepulchre? Who has claim? No one has claim!"

So many to choose from...


"But I, being poor, have only my dreams. I have spread my dreams under your feet. Tread softly because you tread on my dreams." I assume you dream, Preston.


Equilibrium (2002) - Kurt Wimmer


My name is Dalton Russell. Pay strict attention to what I say because I choose my words carefully and I never repeat myself. I've told you my name: that's the Who. The Where could most readily be described as a prison cell. But there's a vast difference between being stuck in a tiny cell and being in prison. The What is easy: recently I planned and set in motion events to execute the perfect bank robbery. That's also the When. As for the Why: beyond the obvious financial motivation, it's exceedingly simple... because I can. Which leaves us only with the How; and therein, as the Bard would tell us, lies the rub.


Inside Man (2006) - Spike Lee

One for fun and one serious one.


[Rec] (2007)


Because what's an '00s draft without a first person, digital horror film. This is the best.


The Lives of Others (2007)


I find it hard to believe that the best surveillance film of the decade didn't go in this post-9/11 / Patriot Act world.

Before Sunset (2004) - dir. Richard Linklater

  • This was the one I kicked myself for forgetting.


Shattered Glass (2003) - dir. Billy Ray

  • I love that this movie uses my dislike of of Hayden Christensen as an advantage!



Brokeback Mountain (2005) - dir. Ang Lee

  • I wasn't that taken with this film, but I was still surprised that it wasn't picked.  So I'm picking it!

Had the busiest day ever. Let's get to business.


I never said thank you.


And you'll never have to.


Batman Begins (Nolan, 2005)


Look, we need to take down either of these cartels: either Juarez or Tijuana. Not because they're a symbol but hell, they are a symbol, but because we need to send a message! When Carlos Ayala hires Michael Addler as his legal defense, I send Ben Williams down to San Diego as a prosecutor, why? Because it's a symbol. It's a symbol that we are sending the best! It's a message that we're going after their top guys.


Traffic (Soderbergh, 2000)

And just because:


Stuart, now is not the time for dick measuring!


Taken (Morel, 2009)
