Top 10 Conservative Movies of the past decade

Nile Gardiner has put in his list for the top 10. I would be curious what readers think should be included on the list.

1. Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World (Peter Weir, 2003)
2. Black Hawk Down (Ridley Scott, 2001)
3. The Lord of the Rings Trilogy (Peter Jackson, 2001, 2002, 2003)
4. Gladiator (Ridley Scott, 2000)
5. The Pursuit of Happyness (Gabriele Muccino, 2006)
6. The Dark Knight (Christopher Nolan, 2008)
7. The Hurt Locker (Kathryn Bigelow, 2009)
8. Hotel Rwanda (Terry George, 2004)
9. The Lives of Others (Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck, 2006)
10. 300 (Zack Snyder, 2007)

To which you should add the serie

Firefly

and it's end-of-serie wrap-up movie

Serenity

It is by far the most explicitely pro-capitalistic freedom movie and serie I've even seen.

I would argue some of those, but where is "The Patriot"???

Hollywood can't get much more 'conservative' than a film depicting a loose group of American individuals (Patriots) fighting for, and WINNING, American sovereignty.

I agree, even though Rules of Engagement is a documentary, it has to be included. There are few more explicit displays of modern-time government out of control.

The John Adams HBO Films mini-series, even though for TV, also deserves to be in the list in my view. It was better than 99.9% of stuff in movie theatres. And it's truly superb. John Adams was our Edmund Burke.
