Quiz: Movies by the year: 2001

21 hours ago

It’s hard to believe that 2001 was 13 years ago. People that were born in 2001 are 13 years old! Actual teenagers! How wild is that?

The 13 year olds of today have at least one thing going for them: They were born in a pretty good year for movies. 2001 was the year of literary adaptations making their way to the big screen for the first time (Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring), mind-bending thrillers (Mulholland Dr., Donnie Darko), and off-the-wall comedies (Wet Hot American Summer, A Knight’s Tale).

2001 also saw the release of a couple indies that have since gone on to gain cult status. We’re looking at you, Ghost World. We are Also looking at you, The Royal Tenenbaums. This gem is still considered by many to be Wes Anderson’s biggest triumph, and has influenced countless other filmmakers »
