For the second decade in a row, Pixar tops my list. (My best of the 1990s: Toy Story - followed tightly by Pulp Fiction, and GoodFellas) In the case of what may be the decade-defining achievement in the world of film, Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings trilogy, I opted to single out my favorite entry, The Two Towers - although I could've just as easily cheated, and listed the entire trilogy in a single entry.
The best of the rest, in no particular order: Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai, Unbreakable, Bubba Ho-Tep, Casino Royale, Brokeback Mountain, Hustle & Flow, American Splendor, Iron Man, Star Wars - Episode III: Revenge of the Sith, and Rocky Balboa.
