Here's how to vote for the Top 10 films of the century so far

Film has become more important than ever for all of us, giving us an escape, thrills and laughs during the coronavirus pandemic.

We want to celebrate the part movies play in our lives and want to compile a list of the top 10 films of the century so far - with your help.

We want to know your favourite films released since 2000.

The century so far has brought us the likes of Harry Potter and The Lord of the Rings to War Horse and Slumdog Millionaire, as well as Les Miserables and Bohemian Rhapsody.

You've already been busy voting, and here, the KM Group's cinema writer, Mike Shaw, gives us his Top 5:

1. Moulin Rouge

The most tremendously, lavish, audacious film of the 21st century. Nothing has come close to the sheer grandeur of Baz Luhrmann's film.

2. Minority Report

I only allowed myself one Spielberg film, and this still holds up today. The thought crimes and personalised advertising seemed outlandish in 2002.

3. The Royal Tenenbaums

This is the most Wes Anderson-y of Wes Anderson's films, and while many critics preferred The Grand Budapest Hotel, for me Royal Tenenbaums is untouchable.

4. Amelie

A gorgeous, glorious, optimistic masterpiece starring Audrey Tatou in her most endearing role, backed by a stunning soundtrack.

5. Senna

A documentary about the world's greatest racing driver. Funny, exciting, compelling and deeply moving. You don't need to care about F1 to love this film.
