Time to start my stack of films from the year 2000. The decade of the 00's is the one in which I've seen the most films already: over 200 titles from each year already. Subsequently, most of the films that I have to watch for this decade are obscurities, foreign films, low and even lower budget genre pictures, and a handful of A pictures that I skipped the last time around. The first movie is:

 

 

Batman Beyond: Return of the Joker - Animated movie based on the TV series about a future time when Bruce Wayne has retired from acting as the Batman and a new, young, high-tech Batman has taken his place. This movie deals with the re-emergence of Batman's arch-nemesis the Joker, who has been missing for many years. 

 

I've never seen any episodes of the TV show, so I had to do some research to find out what the story behind this futuristic Sci-Fi version was all about. The voice talent includes Will Friedle as Terry McGinnis, the current Batman, with Kevin Conroy as Bruce Wayne, Mark Hamill as the Joker, Angie Harmon, Dean Stockwell, Teri Garr, Arleen Sorkin, Tara Strong, Melissa Joan Hart, Michael Rosenbaum, Henry Rollins, Rachel Leigh Cook and Frank Welker.

My final 1999 film, and thus of that decade, is:

 

The Wind Will Carry Us - Iranian drama from Abbas Kiarostami. A civil engineer from the big city travels to a rural village to see a sick relative. His interactions with the locals change his outlook. This is only the second of Kiarostami's films that I'll have seen. I watched Close-Up (1990) fairly recently, and wasn't very impressed with it. Perhaps I'll find more with this one, although that previous film is said to be his most accessible. This one is also one of the 1001 Movies to See Before You Die.
