11. Outcast (2000)
Great performance by Tom Hanks who plays a Fed-Ex employee. He was stranded on the island after the plane crash. There is no one on the island, so he starts working on himself.

12. Remember the Titans (2000)
An excellent film based on a true story about race differences and student athletes trying to deal with them.
