What movies from the past 10 years do you think will be considered classics?

I found Killing Them Softly to be a bit disappointing. I recall it being heavy handed in its political message. 

 

I agree. Chopper, OTOH, is really good ... Eric Bana's best performance ever.

I must give credit to Alexcremers here.

 

Thanks, Steef! It's all based on 'the unstoppable nightmare". Spielberg's Duel is another one (where this time a truck poses for an unstoppable machine). Of course,  No Country For Old Men resembles The Terminator much closer than Duel does.

This comparison is really far-fetched, because the 'unstoppable nightmare'-aspect you mentioned is basically the only thing that unites the three movies.

I'd say that's a big thing. It's what drives these movies and why they work so well (or the reason why they do what they do). They all evoke the same distinctive effect on the viewer: The effect of the unstoppable nightmare. A force that is coming after you and nothing you can do will change that. The rest or everything else is merely a sideshow.
