I don't know if I can put together a comprehensive Top 100, but I will put as many deserving titles on a list as I can. I will also compile a Bottom 20.

a bottom 20 could be the inspiration for another great filmspotters list, one that I won't compile but I'm sure somebody has enough free time to do it.

I wouldn't be surprised if some of the films in your bottom 20 list are on a lot of people's top 100.

Nice list, some I haven't seen, but I do like most of the ones I have, but I'm just jazzed to see someone else throwing some support behind Open Range. Even if it doesn't make your final ballot, just seeing that criminally underrated film get another mention is great.  ;D

There's quite a few people I know who love it, particularly it's dark fantasy take on the world. I've never seen it, but over the years I think it's picked up a good number of boosters to oppose the numerous detractors when the film first came out.

I would have nominated it, but for some reason I thought it was already on the list.  :o

Either way, I think you'd find it interesting at the very least. Just looking at it from a director's perspective, the same man responsible for the claustrophobic thriller Das Boot was the director of The NeverEnding Story.

My old list held up better than I expected, I only needed to ad a few films I've seen since then.  I reserve the right to tinker with the order a bit, but this is roughly the list I'll be submitting:

I'm doing mine right now but I'm just going through a list of directors with more than 1 masterpiece in their hands.  Then I go to the films by directors with 1 masterpiece and see how many are in that list and then rank them.  Of course, you all know what is #1 in my list.   ;)

Ah, you have the same problem that I have then, I assume. You just don't know whether Hannah belongs in front of or behind Jonas Brothers: The 3D Concert Experience. Fair enough. I settled with Hannah being ahead, I think, but I could understand why you would go the other way.

Wow. No. I mean, I far from hated it, but I far from loved it either. And ignoring how different it is from the comics, my biggest problem is with Gabriel. Read your Bibles people, Gabriel is a male Angel. And I know Swinton has the whole androgynous thing goin on, but... no.

There are other problems as well. Notably the horrible splatter on the lens. And Reeves. And the whole, how do you take a charming, charismatic Brit and turn him into.... Keanu Reeves?

Post by: Kevin Shields on July 05, 2009, 09:31:50 PM
As I'm compiling my list at the moment.  I have 196 films so far that I've listed.

Both Gus Van Sant & the Coen Brothers have the most films in the preliminary list with 7 films each.  However, I have 11 films from Disney in that list.  None of them is Hercules or anything relating to Hannah Montana or the goddamn Jonas Brothers.  They'll be at the bottom somewhere.  I piss at them.

I have made cuts.  I had 4 films by Quentin Tarantino but went with 2 in the preliminary.  Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction.  I had 5 from Sergio Leone but cut 2 and went with The Good, the Bad, & the Ugly, Once Upon a Time in the West, and Once Upon a Time in America.  With Wes Anderson, it's likely that it'll only be Rushmore that might the 100 films list. 

I have a lot of art films in the list but not a lot of comedies.  I'm unsure about it at the moment.

Easy, it was a good film but compared to The Lion King, Beauty & the Beast, and The Little Mermaid.  It was just a decent film though had some great animation designed by Gerald Scarfe.

I like Criticker because it lets you rate on a 100 pt. scale so if I was so inclined I could work in really fine grades (but I choose to go by multiples of 5 to keep a little sanity).  So for compiling my top 100 I'm basically looking at everything I gave a 90-100 (something like 150ish titles) along with revisiting a few that I may have underrated because I haven't seen them in years.

I'm not really sure how it's any more inefficient than imdb.  Isn't any site like that a laborious process in the beginning?  Much like my Netflix, I update it on a regular basis.

Thanks for introducing me to that website, I am hooked.  Its a really cool service.  Two bad things about it:

1.  Selection is miserable, needs to be vastly improved.
2.  Their methodology is flawed due to human nature.  I bet we all have three movies where movie A>B, movie B>C. and movie C>A creating an endless loop.

Anything listed as tv-series, mini series, etc on imdb won't qualify.  So that rules of P&P, Les Mis, Dekalog, Band of Brothers, etc.  TV movies however qualify.

I know imdb is rather arbitrary, but it's the easiest way to seperate film, mini series or made for tv so if you are unsure, please check it's status on imdb.

I'd like all of you to watch Kieslowski's A Short Film About Killing (84 minutes; 1988) in preparation for your ballots.  The same cinematographer who did The Double Life of Veronique and Three Colors: Blue, Slawomir Idziak, did this film.

The Dekalog versions are an hour long. The film version are around 80-90mins. Killing truly is a great film on its own.

i remember liking Killing and the first episode (with the math program and the ice) the best. Love was third. For some reason Dekalog stays with me significantly more vividly than Kieslowskis others works. I loved the three colors trilogy, but only vaugely remember Red. Double Life of Veronique wasnt for me.

A Short Film About Killing has about 20-odd extra minutes of which a majority is significant scenes with the protagonist getting fleshed out a lot more as well as the lawyer getting more scenes.  Another difference is the final image which is a totally different shot. The DVD transfer of the extended version is "better" as well.

I'm trying to find movies that will break into my top 100 ... which of these will have the best strike rate? I'm looking for ones I will love/hate as opposed to something I'll like but not love.


If there was one movie I could recommend to everyone before making the list, it would Woman in the Dunes.

I have never heard of it, what's it about?

A really good Japanese movie (http://i30.tinypic.com/xdf7g3.gif)?. I refuse to give anything else away. It's an adaptation of a book by Kobo Abe and I loved the book as well. Fwiw, I read the book first.

Edit: If I was resourceful like duder, I'd post screenshots :-\. Maybe once I get home.

I am quite frightened by the amount you talk about this film. Right up there with FLY and his Hercules obsession. Makes me question the sanity of both you too! Well just kidding ... kinda haha.

The Searchers was well supported so I'll check that out next. I did see Sunset Blvd. this afternoon and was a bit underwhelmed. Not keen on the narrator (based on the ending - which we see at the start) but the story was definitely decent. The overt realisations of mental instability weren't to my taste. Indeed, this seems to be common in quite a few older movies covering this type of ground.

Do you think the the mother and son's relationship is REALLY weird at the start? Takes the Oedipus complex to a new (disturbing) level.

I would be among those three or four. I need some extra convincing that it's among the best 100 movies I've ever seen however.

Here is my tentative list

18.   Badlands 98


Typo... or hitherto unheralded remake 25 years later?

Oops...I had some scores written on my list and didn't erase that one.

98 is a very high score... and yet only #18? I'm guessing you have a few that are worth a perfect 100?
There are no such things as perfect films. There is how ever a perfect film. I'm monotheistic when it comes to movies.

My scores are based on the quality of the films and my personal affection for them. I am a pretty easy grader (I give almost all of my kids A's on their report cards). Only two films got a 100 (Seventh Seal and Seven Samurai).

No, I'm curious where these directors stand with Filmspotters because I sort of can't wait for the final list to be posted.  Also, can't wait to see people's entire lists if there's been talk about that happening.

Well, don't get your hopes up too high now. There are directors in that list of yours that a fair amount of people here haven't discovered, myself included. I wouldn't go into this top 100 event expecting a 'Marker/Charbrol' love fest.

Truffaut has 400 Blows for sure, Shoot the Piano Player is a strong possibility, need to rewatch Jules & Jim, and plan on checking out Small Change as well.  I have a few Godard to watch before making my list, with Pierrot Le Fou being priority.  For Resnais I hope to at least watch Hiroshima Mon Amour, maybe more if there's time.  No excuse for not having seen La Jetee & Sans Soleil, plan on watching those as well.  Sadly haven't seen anything from Rohmer, Chabrol, Rivette, or Varda and I doubt I'll have time before submitting my list.  There's always next year.

3 Resnais are near locks. Between 1 and 3 Varda. Probably La Jetee. Potentially nothing from the rest of them.

I really like A Women is a Women, but I haven't weighed it against anything else. I don't know if that would make my top 100.
Le Bonheur will definitely be on it. I'm thinking about La Pointe-Courte, but I doubt it.
400 Blows is an obvious choice, as is Hiroshima Mon Amour. It's just a matter of finding a spot for them on the list.
Jules et Jim I'm hesitating with.

None from Rohmer or Chabrol or Rivette
Marker: La Jetee
Resnais: Hiroshima mon amour, maybe Marienbad
Varda: Maybe Cleo

Pierrot le feu, A Woman Is A Woman, Sans Soleil, Celine & Julie, Marienbad and Contempt made my last top 100 list (along with The Umbrellas Of Cherbourg).  I had Hiroshima mon amour at #109, Lola at #119, and Shoot The Piano Player at #124.

Muriel has a good shot at moving onto my list this year.  The 400 Blows, Cleo From 5 to 7 and The Young Girls Of Rochefort are possibilities as well.

3 Resnais are near locks. Between 1 and 3 Varda.

If you don't mind me asking, which ones?

As of this moment, these are in my 100:
The 400 Blows, Breathless, My Night at Maud's, The Unfaithful Wife, Celine and Julie Go Boating, La Jetee, Sans Soleil, Night and Fog, Cleo From 5 to 7, The Gleaners and I

Strongly considering:
Antoine and Colette, Stolen Kisses, Love in the Afternoon, Les Bonnes Femmes, Remembrance of Things To Come, Muriel, Vagabond

Godard: Pierrot Le Fou and possibly more.
Resnais: Hiroshima Mon Amour
Varda: Cleo  very likely (still not sure about the others).

Resnais: Marienbad, Je t'aime, je t'aime, and Night and Fog. Hiroshima is just on the outside at the moment and I need to catch up with Mon Oncle D'Amerique (as well as Celine and Julie).

Varda: Cleo and/or La Pointe-Courte and/or Vagabond. Should catch up with Le Bonheur.

I'd love to say I was considering Gleaners and I or Les Bonnes  Femmes, but I don't think I am. May reconsider Muriel.

Since sean included it, I'll point out too that Cherbourg will almost certainly make it.

did cricketer for awhile, but eventually realized that i didnt know the difference between a movie deserving an 84 and one deserving an 85. just a bit too technical for me.

Might just type all my 4 and 5 star ratings on Netflix into a word document and start endlessly tweaking it until the deadline. Everytime I look through them I end up downgrading dozens of movies I rated too high after intial viewing.

I'm not doing it because I refuse to redo some thousands of ratings from other sites.

Yeah I haven't fine tuned it to that level.  I stick to multiples of 5.

I only use 0's at the end of my ratings. Ten levels gives me about all the range I need.

Just sent in my top 100.  Added Moon, Dr. Strangelove and TGTB and TU to my list this week.  
EDIT: This list was updated HERE (http://www.filmspotting.net/boards/index.php?topic=6317.msg335204#msg335204) on Oct 8, 2009

1-50

51-100
(http://jeffstatt.smugmug.com/photos/593060637_YKaYE-XL.jpg)

EDIT: This is an indulgence.  Here are the top 50 movies that at one time were on my top 100, but fell off at some point.  The only exception to that is 2046, which I need to watch again before knowing how to rank.  This obviously has nothing to do with the FS top 100, so feel free to ignore these.  But it's nice to have these all in one place

All these Frenchies and no mention of the Gallic director who will have the most films on my top 100: Bresson.

The original question seems pretty New Wave and New Wave-related specific.  I don't think you can fit Bresson in there.

He'll have a few in my Top 100 as well, though.

Yeah, I limited it to who are usually grouped as the French New Wave and Left Bank (Demy slipped my mind, Moullet left off intentionally) generation.  Renoir, Tati, Vigo, Bresson, Clouzot, Carne, Melville, and Feuillade are some older French/non-NW/non-LB directors whose films will make my Top 100.

I think Munich went severely underrated. I think it was nominated for best picture that year, but it felt like the obligatory nomination that never stood a chance. It probably was my favourite movie that year. Collateral is one of my favourite Michael Mann films. The interraction between Cruise and Foxx is so good in that movie. I also like the story. It's one of those movies that has a small and simple premise, but that can go a lot of places, like all around Los Angeles.

I'll bet your top 100 is about as good as any of the rest of ours.  This is why any individual top 100 is less important than the collection of them all.  It is our collective experience that will make this list significant.

Although, I admit that I am interested to see your list as well, now, to judge it for myself.

Great list.  I like GF III better than most as well (not enough to make my top 100 though)

I like seeing Traffic that high.  Pretty heavy stuff there.  It's interesting to see Blood Simple on there - I haven't seen it yet and it's on my list. 

You must really like Iron Giant because you have it listed twice! (70 and 94)

Pretty good list. My problems begin at 13 and 15, plus South Park and Clockwork Orange are way too low, but other than that I can get behind most of the ones I've seen. Really like that Once is so high on there and that Let The Right One In made the cut. The absence of There Will Be Blood, and by extension the inclusion of No Country so high above it, makes me sad, but I think the rest is good. Except for L.A. Confidential obviously, but you can't win 'em all. Probably should have made room for Hercules and there are much better GVS films than Good Will Hunting, but all in all a very good list.

OK, it's nearly 2 months since my grandmother and my great-aunt are here and they'll be leaving at the end of August.  Yet, it's become very stressful to deal with both of them.  Making things worse is that I have a relative coming from Tues. to Sat. and then next month, another relative.  

I found myself unable to really concetrate and watch films at the moment.  It's harder to find the time, energy, and enthusiasm to do all of all that.  Plus, I'm not getting much sleep and I can't motivate myself to do anything.

Therefore, I'm bowing out.  I just can't handle it right at this moment.

Right, so you're list is just significantly wrong. As always though, with all movies I force on you, with time and additional viewings you will begin to see the error of your ways, demon child.

30   The Sweet Hereafter
46   Antanarjuat
58   Jésus de Montréal
59   Project Grizzly
84   Black Robe
Sweet Can-Con, Clovis. I'm gonna have Atanarjuat on mine for sure.

Wouldn't want the CRTC after me  ;)

I feel a bit silly for having not even thought about Atanarjuat when writing my list.

It's interesting you cite The Barbarian Invasions, while I cite the first part of the series, The Decline of the American Empire. I always liked it more. I assume you have seen it?

Far too long ago. I remember liking it, but I wouldn't be comfortable putting it on a top 100 list. I didn't like the third part of the trilogy however.


As for roujin's list, yeah, that's some pretty intense stuff. Good show old boy.

71)The Godfather Part III
93)Saturday Night and Sunday Morning

I love #93.  It and a couple of other British films are very likely to make it on to my list.  As for Part III, do you like the acting (I'm wondering about everyone except Sofia) and dialogue?  I think the film has some great moments like Michael's confession.  It's a beautiful scene.

I got to about 140-150 and really struggled getting it down. I then just went with which films I would put into the dvd player right now and which ones I would be hesitant to rewatch and went from there. I could have my bottom 50 totally different and be happy with it though. I'm sure I will change again before the deadline.

I sorted things out today. It was nearly impossible. Number of viewings (ie rewatchability) weighed heavily in my decision making process, as did fun factor, and general awesomeness.  ;) I noted the number of viewings for each film, some of which I'm sure of, and others are estimates.

That time is soon arriving. I think I should have the site mostly running by middle of next week. I'm going to send out the email for people to start getting to work on submissions to be ready for the last week of August or first of September. Was it you in charge of the style guide?
I don't think we got even that far in terms of the style guide.

I though either you or Clovis said you'd whip something up.
hmm...dunno.

Will I choke, again!?!

You should watch Spirited Away before the deadline! ;)
I did. Still trying to decide if I have anything of interest to say beyond "It's great."

You may want to also add on "but surely not Top 100 material."

I suppose we will just have to wait and see what the Filmspotting Will determines, won't we?

Feel like maybe 10 from my list will make the final 100.

Hi everyone, I registered specifically for this. I'm pretty happy with my list, but it gets a little dodgy after number 40 with some arbitrary placements. This was really hard to do as I feel like there's another 100 very worthy films, but I hope everyone likes it the way that it is.

Yes you can!  It doesn't even have to be a 100 films.  And the order doesn't have to be exactly right.  Or even close to right.

It's easy!

I'm just saying:  If you took all of your favorite films and picked 100 of them at random and submitted that as your list, it'd still be better than submitting no list at all.

Yes we can!  Yes we can!

Exactly.  And I probably won't even post my list right away, but I'll make sure it gets sent. Have to add all the pretty pictures.

Feel like maybe 10 from my list will make the final 100.

Are you going to list it anywhere?
No, because after seeing Senor Javi's post this...
Feel like I forgot 50 films that would easily list higher than my #51 (J.F.K.)
...has already come to pass.

So? I'm sure we'll all deal with that to a certain degree. I doubt anyone will be 100% happy with theirs.  Honestly, I find the personal lists much more interesting that our overall top 100.

Totally agree...I could make 30 different lists with about 200 different films and be comfortable with them all. The first 10 are pretty set in stone and from there I could go a million different ways. Even though I'm excited to see the list, I love reading the individual lists and adding to my netflix queue.

One Tarantino and this is it? Hello :)



Absolutely. Dramatically underrated film. I think that after a few years when everyone forgets their initial expectations, Death Proof will come into its own. Pulp Fiction did come close to my list, but Death Proof edges it out as my favorite Tarantino. I am surprised however that it took as long as it did for someone to say something about it. I'm well aware how poor regarded the film is, but I was determined for that not to dissuade me.

I thought it was a great film too. Although I think I liked first because of the experience of seeing it with the fake trailers and Planet Terror and secondly because of the quality. I won't hate.

Was that Keaton in some kind of Chaplin disguise in The Gold Rush?


Yeah thanks for bringing my attention to that.

My 'just missed out' list is even longer than that — and yet we have almost no overlap.  In fact, The Crowd was the only common title I noticed at first glance.  But about three or four of the titles you listed will actually make my Top 100.

Ha, you were too fast.  I edited my above post to add that in.  About three or four.

Oh, and a second title that I think is going to just miss out on my list: Annie Hall.  That seems wrong, though.  Going to have to think carefully about that.

Heh, the 100th choice is often the most interesting one.

That pick notwithstanding... Nice list!  You made me feel guilty about a good dozen titles on my honorable mention list, especially Paths of Glory, I Am a Fugitive from a Chain Gang, Persona, Requiem for a Dream, The Grapes of Wrath, Lawrence of Arabia, and One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest; plus plenty of titles that I wanted to consider but couldn't because it's been too long since I've seen them — Marty, Bicycle Thieves, The Gold Rush, The Treasure of the Sierra Madre, Alien, The Manchurian Candidate, and Sherlock Jr.

I don't know if I can do this.
Same here. I quit watching stuff about three days ago because it's gonna take me a few heavy sessions just to stare at my list and sort it all out. I've pretty much figured my top 20, the rest, not so much. Part of the problem is that I haven't seen all the films that will make my top 100 twice. Simply didn't get around to rewatching.

The other part is that I get torn between films I think are better and films speak to me personally. Yea, Aliens is great, but it doesn't really have any emotional resonance (although it will still be in my top 20. :D).

I just hope I remember to submit my list. Maintaining a constant list removes a lot of the stress you guys appear to be in whittling your films down tom a top 100. But, I'm trying to get a few films to see if they'll make my top 100 and alter the list. So far only one of the six or so films I've watched in the past few weeks made the top 100, and ridiculously high at that. I just hope i remember to submit it before the deadline.

It's somewhere in the 101-115 range right now.  Once I finally get around to rewatching it (it's been a few years since I've seen it), it'll probably jump up .... unless the director's cut kills things.

But if I compare your top 20 to my top 20, we have 2 matches... which puts you in the upper middle range percentage wise.

If you dont have photoshop, which costs like $600, you can get Irfanview (http://www.irfanview.com/) for free it will do batch processing. It is a very handy little program.

I should expand my list, but after only 3 years of being a film fan, i dont have enough films i love to form a top 100. I probably could have done a top 50, but i just didnt.

Actually, i did compare my top 20 to your top 100 and we still only have 2 in common, both, strangely, in your top 5.

15.Glengarry Glen Ross
14.Brick
02.Once Upon a Time in the West

In fact having recently rewatched both Once Upon a Time In The West and The Good The Bad and The Ugly, I could do a straight swap. TGTBTU wasn't quite as strong as I remembered, where as OUaTitW was even better then I remembered (and I remembered it being very awesome).Also, I would now place For A Few Dollars More ahead of TGTBTU.

These I've yet to see (awful, I know!)

20.The Third Man
13.Blade Runner
09.Being John Malkovich
07.Hunger

I'm probably going to make a few adjustments to my list before the deadline.  ;)

Where do people get their poster images/ screen cap images from?

I do all my screencaps myself, but you can generally get good ones from dvdbeaver.com.

It's all about trying to remember those few nostalgic and guilty pleasure type films. You can probably cull all the other picks from existing lists, imdb top list, etc... but you'll kick yourself for forgetting this stuff:

I lied about being done with the watching half. I'm watching The Decalogue. I wonder if this all should even be counted as one movie. If it is then shouldn't Lord of the Rings all be one movie?  They have about the same running time. And what about Ivan the Terrible? (Although, both parts were made in different decades so I guess they probably should be broken up.)

Anything listed as tv-series, mini series, etc on imdb won't qualify.  So that rules of P&P, Les Mis, Dekalog, Band of Brothers, etc.  TV movies however qualify.

I know imdb is rather arbitrary, but it's the easiest way to seperate film, mini series or made for tv so if you are unsure, please check it's status on imdb.

Bumped for sam.  A Short Film About Love and A Short Film About Killing are eligble though (and already have votes, I think).

And what about Ivan the Terrible? (Although, both parts were made in different decades so I guess they probably should be broken up.)

They weren't made in different decades, they were made within two years of each other.  Part 2 didn't get released anywhere for a long time because Stalin thought it was about him (which it was).  Eisenstein had been dead for 10 years when it finally was shown (he died after making it, which is another reason why there's no Part 3).

My favorite memory was when Jason Goes To Hell: The Final Friday was coming out, we rented the first 8 Fridays and went through all 8 before going to see the new one in the theaters. It was....sick...no other word for it.

As soon as possible would be best for me. I (and I'm sure a bunch of other people) have to go back to school in the first few days of September and having a spiffy new top 100 list before then would be a nice end of summer present.

nice little list, i like all the horror

Oh yeah, I was QUITE the little horror buff as a teen.  I had a friend of mine whom all summer was one long horrorthon.  All we did every day was go down to his basement, order some pizza, have some girls over and watch horror flick after horror flick.

My favorite memory was when Jason Goes To Hell: The Final Friday was coming out, we rented the first 8 Fridays and went through all 8 before going to see the new one in the theaters. It was....sick...no other word for it.


just revisited Friday the 13th the other day (for the 80s bracket (http://www.filmspotting.net/boards/index.php?topic=6081.0), you should join in and get a pair!) and i've been considering it for my 100.  don't think i've noticed anyone with it on their list yet
You didn't because you're off your nut for considering it. It's easily 80% amateurish and 20% inventive. There's got to be 100 things you can find that do better than Cunningham does there.

probably so, but i think that aesthetic works well for horror and i like to give this one credit for being an early slasher flick (the best of this era, i'd say (at least upon not having revisited the others in forever :) )

Black Christmas is infinitely better and a number of years older. Halloween also shows far more of a deft hand when developing a terrifying milieu. I also feel like what your saying sells horror short, aesthetically.

talking early slasher, i really prefer Texas Chain Saw (which is on my list) to Friday.  i'd have to rewatch all of the above together to get a good sense of preference, but i think Friday > BC > Halloween (and i much prefer Clark's Deathdream to BC).  have you seen Friday the 13th recently?  i really think it is a decent piece of film-making - some nice camera-work, an excellent score, and i think it creates a better atmosphere than Halloween (i even think zombie's Halloween is pretty good :) )

It's Cait dragging the 14 year old out of me. And if BC is Carpenteresque, what is Halloween.

Besides, if your definition of slasher refers to a style of gore then BC sticks out a bit more (but still fits, especially as one of the earliest examples) but I identify slashers as having the audience connection to the killer and character focus upon him/her (which Halloween and Friday are known for, and BC had before them) and the last girl structure which all of them have. I left out Texas, but not intentionally, it fits in as well.

Last year, some films made the list with just two votes.  That number should be significantly higher this year, even if voter turnout is lower.

Let me know if you need a second set of eyes for the counting.

Yeah, it's weird.  A lot of the big name critics sort of said the same thing I said — i.e., it's not life-changing or anything but better than you'd expect.  But whereas the Metacritic score is 66, the IMDb rating is only 4.9 (after about 500 votes).

I am perfectly capable of stuffing the ballot box to the brim with votes for Hercules.

True story: This morning my gf sent me a text that said "Disney Hercules is not a good movie"

When we get to it in the marathon and I write a 5 page paper on why it kicks ass you should let her read it because she is way off the mark on that one.

I don't care. I haven't seen the original, but apparently they are basically the same film. Aside from Michael Pitt the performances didn't blow me away so I'm mostly voting based on the ideas the film presents, which are universal across both films. Count it for whatever has more support.

3. number of no.2-5 votes

Yea, wheat is a whole different category.  You can't objectively classify shots of wheat as awesome. You've got to take it on a case by case basis. Trees on the other hand are objectively awesome.

LIST LIST LIST (http://www.filmspotting.net/boards/index.php?topic=6317.msg306497#msg306497)

damn!  we share only 4 picks, but there are many that just barely missed out on mine (and the forgotten Babe :( ), very nice list and great frames.

i started pulling some frames yesterday (about 1/3 of my list) and realized that some of my picks are waaaay out of order:
Orlando should be way up - Top 10/20, not 75;
Glen or Glenda Top 30/40, not 97;
Old Joy up from 9 into Top 5 (maybe even 1?!);
Sicko higher than 41;
Glengarry up from 45;
Red Belt into the 20s from 58

not sure how all of this would have been shifted, but some of these miscues bummed me out :)

Likewise, you had a bunch that I didn't include for various reasons, mostly because I hadn't seen them in a long while.

I really should've had Videodrome on there.

If you start worrying about order too much, that's the end of you.

No kidding.  My top 20 is probably pretty accurate but for the rest I mostly focused on tiers (though even that is pretty flexible).  Every film I rewatched over the last few weeks was actually better than I remembered, with the exception of Raging Bull.  That and George Washington experienced the biggest drops.  I would've liked to include films like Godfather II or Before Sunrise/Sunset, but it had just been way too long since I've seen them.

Assuming the fantasy football league draft doesn't get moved from the 30th, the countdown is 99% certain to be on the 29th.

It's bound to last a while, so if you're an early bird you'll no doubt catch the end.

Also, after counting nearly 30 votes I feel very confident in saying that the issue with last years countdown of number of votes vs points tally appears to have been solved pretty well.  Based on the list so far, it seems pretty fair to both number of votes and how much people like a movie.

I was wondering.

I know I only did a top 20, but recently I have been seeing films, mainly in other's top 100s and saying "That'd probably be in my top 100, that would too"

And I was thinking about this when a thought hit me. I was wondering whether Spike Jonze's video for the song Y Control by the Yeah Yeah Yeahs would be eligible for this list. Now, granted, it wouldn't have a chance of making it, but I saw some people put shorts on their lists, and this video is so good that if it was eligible, it would probably make mine, albeit very low.

So, basically, would music videos be alowed for the list?

At best, it's good.  Kind of patchy.  Not as terrible as its reputation will have people think.  Not a neglected masterpiece, either.  Last time I checked (a few weeks ago) it was on Netflix Instant.

I wish Elaine May would direct a film written by her once again.  Though, she didn't write my favorite film of hers and one of my all time comedies The Heartbreak Kid.

I rank them:

1. The Heartbreak Kid
2. A New Leaf

It is a painful and uncomfortable comedy.  Kind of in the neighborhood of Curb Your Enthusiasm as well as Neil Simon's plays.  It made AFI's 100 Years...100 Laughs list.  And I've read interviews with stand-up comedians citing it as one of their favorite comedies.  I understand where you're coming from, though.

Still, that is a bit of a blow. That may very well be one of the highest films on my list that doesn't make the master list (I know perfectly well what the highest is).

Movies around the 200 mark averaged between 5-8 votes.

Then it's 2/3 votes down to around the 500 mark when the 1 vote movies show up.

Since you asked, the lowest rank for a movie that received 2 votes is #1003-#1020, the highest ranking for a 2 vote movie is #298-#300.

There's 8 movies that made the list that don't have double digit total votes, the other 92 have at least 10; with 15 or so movies having 20+ votes.

Yeah, well, if 10 more people (9 minus sean) watch it now that it's on Criterion, I feel pretty good about its chances for next year.

Cmon people, it was #115 of all time on our list. While criminally low, that still should compel everyone who hasn't to see it.

Okay, so late to the party, but pretty awesome top 100. Thanks so much Wilson!!

Now some comments...I was super surprised to see 26 of my films on the list...can this be right?!?

And also, the fact that I was quoted on Before Sunrise, Annie Hall, Casablanca, and The Godfather was so flattering. I didn't think I had coherent thoughts in my reviews. And for it to be on those, which for the most part are so high, it made me smile. But I suppose it's probably more because I was one of the more recent to see these, playing catch-up as it were.

I also want to out Mr. Hutchinson for his blurb on Annie Hall. He actually didn't see the whole film, just a small part including the Jeff Goldblum part, which I had warned him of previously, but also cool to see him quoted.

Yay for things like this!!

Films I haven't seen: 22 (Less than I expected, but not by much. I bet I'll see 4 of them by next year.)
Films I was quoted for: Fight Club (http://www.filmspotting.net/boards/index.php?topic=1028.msg149901#msg149901), Days of Heaven (http://www.filmspotting.net/boards/index.php?topic=1028.msg289600#msg289600), Sunrise: A Song of Two Humans (http://www.filmspotting.net/boards/index.php?topic=1028.msg158674#msg158674), Pulp Fiction (http://www.filmspotting.net/boards/index.php?topic=1028.msg100933#msg100933)

Humorously I later said this about Fight Club:
Fight Club is the one that sticks out the most to me.

This is the WORST endings thread not the best ending thread.
I just thought it was a stupid way to end the movie. Made no sense.

Jeanne Dielman, 23 Quai du Commerce, 1080 Bruxelles (1975, Chantal Akerman)


After the Criterion of A Brighter Summer Day is released, I expect it to rank around here for the Top 100 that follows its release.  And like Dielman next year, ABSD will crack the Top 50 of the second Top 100 thing following its DVD release.  It will happen.  Oh, yes, it will happen.

As for the lack of films by female directors, how about we do more Female Directed Films every 4th month for the MDC?

Good idea, I'll know which months I can take off to spare myself the embarrassment.

I find this list's lack of great comedies disturbing. Where's Ferris Bueller's Day Off? Groundhog Day?

And what about Tati? No Playtime?

Just keep sending Ratcatcher around until you see something better from the dictations.

Maybe. We all deserve months off.

Around the time I started the Top 5 (or 10) Comedy list, a thought ran through my head of doing a Filmspotter Top 100, or maybe just 50 list, but I kept it to myself for no good reason

I'd love to participate in that.  After Edgar's Performances thing, though.

I guess I need to watch His Girl Friday and Hoop Dreams. Seems feasible.

Thanks so much for doing this Wilson, it seems like a lot of work :)

I'm chomping at the bit for a performances list, but after that I'd love to do a comedies. The definition of comedy would be tough to pin down, but I think it would be worth a try.

I've got 22 on the list. I guess that makes me an outsider.

I have five quotes. Three of them involve the word "perfect". Either wilson was messing with me or I say things are perfect too much. Probably the latter. I do enjoy that Asuperplus made the list, though. It validates it.

Thanks wilson (and my fellow forum friends for sending lists). This is awesome. Perfect, even.

Yea, I realized there was a lot on the table already and that's kind of why I didn't say anything at the time. I guess in terms of pinning down what a comedy is, I would probably just say that whatever you think, then if enough people think it is and like it, then it will make the list. That's probably pretty flawed though.

thanks a ton wilson.

Ecstatic over the new #1!!!

38 made the list which was definitely more than I'd expected.
11 Of my list I was the only vote for including Kids (I'm looking at you rouj!)
31 of the final list i've not seen
5 of those are actually sitting on my dvd shelf
1 - as in my #1 was number 1! :D (had I not gamed my list last year it would've been #1 then as well I think)

You should bring it up and call dibbs/hold your idea in line.  Someone might propose something and people might get behind that pushing your idea further down in priority.

Wait...I was the only person to vote for American Psycho?

24 - of my list got on the big list.
48 - of the big list I've seen  :-\
Lots- that I was the only person that voted for them.

I had 32 films on the big list that were also on my own.
I still haven't seen 24 films on the list.

I found it interesting that I was quoted for Adam's Rib, yet it wasn't on my list.  Of course, I saw the full film only after I turned in my top 100, but I still don't know that it would have made it.  However, it's growing in my thoughts...

And, yeah, where IS Groundhog Day?  And why wasn't it on my list?  Oh, well, there's always next year.

Strangelove is a great comedy no? (GHD & FBDO were both on the list I submitted)

I wasn't quoted for anything?  Man.

I liked the list a lot, had a few "Well CINECAST!'s", but that's to be expected.

And shocked that two of my Top 5 had a lot of support, 7 and 9 votes, and didn't crack the Top 100 (Harold and Maude, Shadow of a Doubt).

Movies I was the only vote for:
A.I. (surprised at this, thought it had a bit of love here... wait, I wasn't the only vote, it was listed twice)
Bullets Over Broadway (one of Woody's best, in spite of John Cusack)
Diva (not surprised)
Fury (see above)
Ghost Dog (this was a Top 8 Film of the 90s, yet it wasn't good enough for the lot of your ballots?  BAH.)
Hopscotch (not surprised, although it still didn't deserve to get beaten by CINECAST!ing Dirty Dancing in the 80s bracket)
Love in the Afternoon (so, so charming)
Requiem for a Heavyweight (if I compete in the Best Performances (still feel it's too broad fwiw), Anthony Quinn here will get a lot of support)
Scarface (I know this film is very divisive but I'm surprised I'm the only Top 100 vote)
Shakespeare in Love (surprising)
State of the Union (with a MDC or two, I will fix this for next year)
The Full Monty (BAH.)
The Last Picture Show (see State of the Union)
The People vs. Larry Flynt (...)

Well, I was only quoted for a movie I didn't think was that great.  ;)

Well, here's how my list fared. 18 of the films made the top 100 and I'm very pleased with that.

1. Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991) (#42 / 12 votes) (I'm so so happy to have T2 make the cut. I really do feel it's something special. Considering it's age and genre, to go from who knows where to #42 really made my night!)<
