Oh man. I've got lots of work in front of me. I fully expect my list this year to be nothing like it was last year.

So far, I only have 11 potential additions, but after this month, I might bump it up to 12.

Hmm, going through the spreadsheet I found two things.

1. AI has three different entries.
2. There are 99 films that received a vote that I would consider competitive for my top-100. At least half are already on it and probably a quarter won't really make it. That's a good space for films that I can be that one vote this year.

For tabulating purposes I'm assuming it's easier if ballots are formatted like so:

The Land Before Time
and not
Land Before Time, The


Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon
and not
Wo hu cang long

English and Land Before Time, The would be preferable but it's not required.

I'd done with my list after much toiling. Unfortunately, the number of movies that I felt were Top 100 ending up being 175 and since I like big, round numbers I threw in another 25 so as to torture myself into making a Top 200. I'll do screens for the first 100 and then list the other 100 in a more sensible way. As a little teaser, number 158 is Letter from an Unknown Woman (1958), so do with that information what you will.

Would something like Kill Bill be considered one film because it was originally intended for that, or would I have to split up volumes 1 and 2?

They were released as and thus are separate films and should be viewed/counted as separate films in my opinion, yo.

Even if it was written and filmed as one movie and not split up until after all that for marketing?

Yep, as far as I am concerned, whatever the reason may be it was released as one film, and thus it is one film. That's the same reason that I won't view Grindhouse as two separate films, it was released as one, doesn't matter to me that they have tried to change that after it made no money in the theaters.

The two Grindhouse films are completely separate entities. Different scripts, different directors, different sets of credits, etc. That I do consider two films. Kill Bill is one continuous story that is intended as ONE continuous story. I hear what you are saying, but you are just wrong.

Here is my Top 100 with a short little disclaimer at the top where I offer a statement for those that I'm sure are wondering what happened to numerous classics that I didn't include. I'd rather people comment on the forums than on the site I'm linking to. This was fun, I'll also post this in the Top Films of All Time thread as well.

Keith is right, Grindhouse is 3 films.  Last year votes for Grindhouse, Death Proof and Planet Terror were all accepted.  Kill Bill, as last year, seperate movies.

As for movie series like LotR, Star Wars, etc etc, they'll obviously be counted as seperate movies.  Anything listed as a mini series or tv series on imdb will not be eligible, so please don't waste your votes on Decalog or The Wire.  The Red Riding trilogy, although made for TV, aren't listed as such on imdb and thus are eligible, but as seperate entities.

TV movies also eligible.

I think that clears up most of the issues?

I've got a few films that need revisiting before deciding where they should place on the top 100 (if anywhere). All of them have only received one viewing so far:

-The Fly
-JFK
-Indecent Proposal (What can I say, it made a big impression on me when I watched it four years ago. This and Unfaithful. I found both incredibly disturbing.  :-\)
-Lars and the Real Girl
-The Prestige

Salient point. I would feel uncomfortable about giving too much value to any film I have only seen once. The best films can take multi-viewings at different times. Best example, Big Lebowski, I discovered this was the perfect hangover movie, early one Sunday morning! Plenty of inappropriately early drinking in that.

Close to 25% of the films on my top-100 are ones I've only seen once. Thing is, many of them are things I watched more recently but aren't new films. This is the difficulty. Whether it is The Apartment or Spring Summer Fall..., I think it is important to give it time before revisiting it, but I also don't want to leave it off just because I've only seen it once. Some of the stuff I've seen a bit further back have other things. Metropolis, for example, I will be rewatching once I can see the new recovered version.

Sometimes it only takes me one viewing to know a film is one of my favorites. There are some films that I walk away with such an unexplainable feeling that I don't want to ruin that feeling by revisiting the film.

You are going to send in a ballot at least though, correct?

I wasn't planning on it.  The list last year was tough and just a guess.  This year I'm being more consistent, but won't be done in time.  So a list by Sept would be half-assed.  Not a real list, in my opinion.

It's a mix of both for me, and I'm not always (never?) able to distinguish between what "best" and "favorite" means. My #1 film, for example, It's a Wonderful Life. Do I think it's the best film ever made? Mmmm, no, I wouldn't make that claim, but I do think it's really, really, really good and I love it with all my heart. Also, there are films that I acknowledge to be great, but I don't love them, so they won't make my list.

So from your perspective OAD, it is essentially a favourites list if you are only including things you love, as opposed to things you think are great achievements in cinema but do not love.

This will of course create a much more interesting, diverse and controversial list - which is a good thing - this is what I was hoping for :D

So boring films like Raging Bull won't make the cut!

I don't think the distinction between the two lists is as meaningful as some make it to be. If a film isn't something I love, it isn't a great achievement. It's as simple as that. Sure, there are some films that I love for pure enjoyment (Spice World) that would never make my top-100, but being something I love is an absolute prerequisite.

Yeah looking through the individual lists of posters is far more revealing and interesting so I also would prefer people do their favourites. Hell, I had North by Northwest and Happy Gilmore right next to each other in my Top 20 last year.

Not to have a go at anyone, although I understand that Citizen Kane is a cinematic masterpiece of its time, I have watched it, and even reviewed it a few months back. It had some great scenes, some fantastic scenes even, but the beginning was really dull, and it had a few other just okay bits here and there. So overall I just could not recommend it for #1, or even top 50 (still mentally debating 50-100 - so you know, I still think quite highly of it, just not THAT high). *cough* overrated *cough*  ;D

Otherwise those last couple of lists look great!

Good to see stuff like Stalker and the Blues Brothers make the lists - I think they have been overlooked a bit.


Beauty and the Beast was a surprise, I personally thought the Broadway version of that was a lot better than the film. Plus a couple of the sequels that got mentioned surprised me - I just thought the originals were better (The Godfather and Kill Bill being exceptions).


I know my own last list elicited some controversy which will probably resume when I (hopefully time permitting) put up an updated list within the next week. But just as a tease - I think this still stands as my #1 - make sure you all add it to your lists people!!!!!!

Come and See looks brutal just from the DVD cover. Want to see it having just seen Downfall. I'm on that kick of modern films taking on WW2.

Which version of Close Encounters of the Third Kind should I watch for optimal top 100 consideration? I'm thinking directors cut which seems to be the longest.

Which version of Close Encounters of the Third Kind should I watch for optimal top 100 consideration? I'm thinking directors cut which seems to be the longest.

There's kinda a long story behind this, which makes it kinda hard to answer.  The big question is that in 1980 Speilberg re-released the film with a bunch of new scenes and a completely tacked on ending that he's regreted ever since (it was a studio compromise).  He also had to cut some scenes that were in the original.

IN 1998 the the "Collectors Edition" came out.  It has long been considered the definitive cut as it includes all the original footage from the 1977 release plus the new scenes of the 1980 release, but without the tacked on ending (although it is included in the special features)

There is now there is something called the "Ultimate Edition" - and I'm not sure what it consists of.

I will tell you, the different versions are not that different (a few non-critical scenes here and there) .  I can even recommend the TV-cut.  The "tacked on ending" in question is hard to explain without spoiling.  But  it's not all that offensive.  I'm thinking you'll have made up your mind on the film long before you get there and this ending won't sway you one way or other.

The DVD I borrowed from the store is called the 30th Anniversary Ultimate Edition. Its a 3 disc set including:
Original Theatrical Cut (135 mins) 1977
Special Edition (132 mins.) 1980
Director's Cut (137 mins.) 1998

I'm only going to have time to watch one of them.

I think the Director's Cut is the Collector's Edition version you recommended so I'll watch that one.

I have the 30 th Anniversary Ultimate edition on blu-Ray with the three versions. As part of a very nice package you get a chart comparing the three versions mentioned with a timeline showing where differences appear. In short the directors cut is the Special Edition version plus some material restored from the original version. The special edition ending which has loads of mother ship interior is restored to the original ending.
The reverse of this chart is the original poster.
Blu-Ray does the film justice and it was cut price so it's worth checking out. It has a gorgeous book of stills and quotes.

Close Encounters, Empire Strikes Back, Alien, and Blade Runner are all no-brainer top 100 films.. I was 12 when the first came out and 17 when the last appeared. So these films had such a tremendous impact on me in my formative years. They define for me what a top 100 film is, a film that picks itself because of the impact it had on me, not how highly it is regarded.I appreciate cgi makes them visually redundant, but none of them is dated in any way, even the computers in Alien are still cool.

Close Encounters is an amazing film, and the Collector's Edition is definitely the one to watch.

I've been cramming quite a bit lately, but still feel like I need to see a few more.  I don't know where I am going to fit them because there are so many films on my Top 100 that I'm almost convinced I have to include so I keep fighting them and then I find something that I don't want to fight for as strongly even if it's higher and that gets bumped.

It's really quite frustrating.

I hear you. At some point, I'm just going to have to give up and tell myself, "There's always next year to improve/revise the list." And that is a comfort. :)  I'm actually really happy with a number of the new titles I'll be adding to my list this year - I think it'll be a better list than last year!

Some, yes; a lot I need to see still, and there are some you suggested I need to get a hold of still. But off the top of my head, Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner and Peeping Tom will be new to and on my list, for sure. Maybe Saturday Night and Sunday Morning, too.

The Criterion DVD of Close-Up is great not just for the upgrade in transfer but for the bonus (on the same disc) film The Traveler which is in serious contention to make the cut. 

Hmmm, I don't know what you thought of Olmi's segment in Tickets but, if you have the time, you should check out I Fidanzati and Il Posto before the deadline  :)

I don't see why brevity would be a problem. Why not just "Top 100 Lists"? If you wanted it specific to filmspotters, maybe say "Our Top 100 Lists" or "Filmspotters' Top 100 Lists". "Best of" seems a bit clunky and unnecessary (IMHO).

FCM, I understand this problem (as I think most of us do), already I am in doubt about the order of my films and there presence on the list.

At least they are grouped point-wise, so the difference between 81 and 86 doesn't make a difference when it is factored into the group list.  So maybe you don't have to worry about that as much.

Solaris is always better than All That Heaven Allows, no matter when you ask that question!

Is not!

So I procrastinated and only started formatting and ranking my list starting at 45 minutes before the deadline.  I managed to email my Top 20 with three minutes left, the next 30 with one minute left, and the last 50 one minute past the deadline.  I'm only happy with my Top 20 as it's the one I spent the most time on.  The list I will post will be different from the 21st spot and on since I can think about it more.

By my quick count, we've got 48 entries; which is 2 more than last year so I'm certainly very pleased with that.

Looking forward to seeing how much (or how little) the list changes this year.

I'm aiming for 100-51 on Saturday, 50-1 on Sunday; both starting sometime around 4pm EST each day.

Obviously, that all depends on being able to get them all tallied up and list created in the next few days, so it's around 75% that I'll make that deadline.  If not, it'll likely be the following weekend.

Great list Blue Void

35.) Battle Royale
An interesting pick, I really enjoyed it.

53.) Citizen Cane
Is this the one about a man with a limp?

60.) Freaks
I assume this is the 1930's one.

Right, so there's now like no chance the list could be posted this week to anywhere near the standards I want; so it'll be next week.  The real question is, what are people's preferences for when the list should be posted?  A midweek posting, or hold off til next weekend?  Bear in mind, the list will be over 2 days, with 50 posted each day and obviously the build up with posts of movies that don't quite make the cut.

How about throughout the week, 15 a day and then 10 on the last day. Or is that too complicated/frustrating.

I prefer Wilson's model with 50 posted each day - that way, the chat sessions will be more fun (I am just assuming there will be chat sessions)!

As for when: as soon as possible! I can hardly bear the suspense any more ;)

I wasn't a voter previously and 12 Angry Men is my #1 and Spirited Away is top-15/20 so with 50 ballots I imagine that holding others constant they would see a boost. Didn't have any of the others on either list.

I only recently saw Ikiru for the first time. Don't know that it will ever make my list but I definitely liked it enough that a little time for it to linger could boost it. I do find it interesting that I had three of my top ten in this set but nothing that made my list from outside the top ten. Four films so far that I haven't seen (adding in The Red Shoes which is up soon in my classics marathon anyway). Very happy right now and thanks again to Wilson for all his work. Can't wait for tomorrow's set.

Woo! Looking great, Wilson! I totally watched the trailers for all the films I'd already seen. Conclusion? Almost Famous has a great trailer, and I don't know why I haven't watched that movie in, like, 7 years. I should rewatch it.

Made it so far from my list:

Breathless - looking forward to seeing this on the big screen in October
The Philadelphia Story - you know, I'm not sure I'd want to see this based on the trailer  :-\
The Wizard of Oz
Back to the Future
Ikiru


Also seen:

Almost Famous
Memento
Aguirre, the Wrath of God
American Beauty


Need to see:

Paris, Texas - currently on instant!
F*cking Amal
Miller's Crossing
- Gabriel Byrne. I'm intrigued.
The Night of the Hunter
Hoop Dreams
Reservoir Dogs
- will hopefully be seeing this big soon too
Touch of Evil
M
The Red Shoes
- will probably see this soon, as the poster for the new Criterion in the window at Scarecrow keeps taunting me

Can't remember if I've seen because all MarxBros movies tend to run together for me:

Duck Soup

Seen half of before it went off of instant:

Fitzcarraldo

Oddly enough the two "surprises" for me so far are two that were on last year...Hoop Dreams and Miller's Crossing. Outside of Coen Bros discussions I don't feel like I've really heard much about Miller's Crossing and it isn't exactly a pedigree film (it isn't on a lot of lists at iCheckMovies); not having seen it yet I can't say if this is good or bad surprise. Again I don't hear much about Hoop Dreams around these parts, I didn't really like it so maybe that heightens my surprise in this case. Anyway, I think ten I liked/loved, five I didn't and five I haven't seen is a pretty good balance.

I'm kind of glad I did because that bracket was brutal to the films I love. The advantage of non-US brackets or pre-90s brackets is I'm much less invested and can just discover.

I apologise for my outburst against American Beauty and promise not to primal scream again during the course of this parade of the pantheon.
However if you look at page 2 of the results as it stands; AB looks kind of like a pimple on the face of a beautiful woman (currently I have SD's picture of Gene Tierney on my mind) because it goes Reservoir Dogs-Ikiru-burp-Touch of Evil-M-Red Shoes or Tarantino-Kurosawa-huh?-Welles-Lang- Archers.

AB wasn't bad as such it just looks like someone stuck a five year olds finger painting in the DaVinci gallery of the Louvre, in that company.

I don't think anyone's said it recently but Wilson, that is a superb job of presentation you are doing, much love.

Wow, Miami Vice was that close? Madness, I say, madness. Also, sad seeing The Seventh Seal go, but it finally slipped off my list this year so you can blame me.

Love seeing that Paris, Texas is on there, but not liking the huge dropoff. Could my beloved Days of Heaven be in trouble?  :o

Also, glad to see Aguirre up on there as well as M.

American Beauty? (No comment. ;D )

O yea, and Miller's Crossing, that's a good film. Hope there's plenty more Coen to come, though. Also, I like that I get quoted on films I end up changing my mind one down the road.  ;D

Also, I shamefully haven't see The Red Shoes yet. I rented it twice (TWICE!) from the library but I failed to watch it both times. That's two weeks I had the film but didn't watch it.  :P

So for my thoughts:

Touch of Evil, Hoop Dreams, M, and Memento all made my top 100, but should all be 50-80 spots higher on this list.

The Philadelphia Story, The Wizard of Oz, and Aguirre, Wrath of God all made my 101-200.

Reservoir Dogs, Ikiru, The Night of the Hunter, American Beauty, The Red Shoes, Duck Soup, Fitzcarraldo, Paris, Texas are all good movies but none made my top 200.

Back to the Future and Breathless aren't particular good movies, but aren't unbelievably terrible. Still neither would make my top 500.

Almost Famous and Miller's Crossing should only be discussed for things about the "worst" something or another.

F*cking Amal I haven't seen, which means that I average not seeing one film on this list per year (didn't see 2 in 2008, everything in 2009, 1 in 2010). Of course there is still the possibility of missing one or more of the remaining 80. Damn those curveballs.

Personal lists will not be counted among the "main" set so I don't think it will cause the problem you anticipate. Our lists, however, are better than those on iCM already so I'm with you there. The other nice thing about 2.0 is it will initiate getting a lot more movies into their system.

both Seventh Seal and Breathless had 80 points, Breathless made the list based on weighted voting for high placings on lists.

So a film needs to be on at least 5 (more in practice) lists to be able to make it into the top 100, I like that stat.

yep, personal lists are your own thing. They do, however, have lists for the entire site from both the FOK! and Reddit forums.

both Seventh Seal and Breathless had 80 points, Breathless made the list based on weighted voting for high placings on lists.

So a film needs to be on at least 5 (more in practice) lists to be able to make it into the top 100, I like that stat.

I'll be really curious to find out which film on the Top 100 had the fewest # of votes and which had the highest.

I don't think I've even heard of In A Lonely Place.  I guess I need to see it, then.

I'm a little disappointed that my two quotes thus far sound so reserved.  Double Life is one of the most stunning films ever made.  Duck Soup is certainly my favorite comedy.  There, that's better.

I'm really happy to see M and Memento and The Princess Bride, but I wish they were higher.  Oh well, perhaps when I turn in a full list next year, they will be.

Mark Kermode on Radio 5 just mentioned A Matter of Life & Death as one of his favourite films, which is very good taste for the bequiffed one.

The Powell/Pressburger marathon hopefully means more FSpotters will have seen it, maybe even this week, as they are following along.

If AMOLAD doesn't appear in this year's top 100 it might be because it isn't widely viewed. I would be surprised if that's the case next year. Are many people actually 'doing' the marathon? Anybody?

OH MAN. The Music Box had it a year or two ago and I was bummed when I finally saw it this summer that it wasn't on the big screen. Exciting!

Really pleased with most of the new entries so far. Fitzcarraldo! Ikiru! The Red Shoes! In a Lonely Place! Double Life of Veronique! Toy Story returns! Spinal Tap makes a big jump! Disappointed in the big drops for Paris, Texas, Le Samourai, and M, but they're still on the list and that's what is important.

I liked it a lot. I wish I had time to type up a full review - but I've got too many other things on my plate right now, unfortunately. I'm not sure that it will make my top 100 next year - I still like The Red Shoes and Peeping Tom more - but it still was really wonderful.

And yeah, I've been completely out of order, in terms of following along with Adam and Matty - I just wanted to try to get all the P&P films watched as quickly as I could before I start teaching (next week).

Ugh, ugh, #26 is a big ugh. To keep a current argument going, a vastly superior WWII film that prominently features Hitler in the form of Downfall would have been a better option. Still, good list, I'm not actually complaining about the list.

But when it is good it is very very good. My question would be, do you think Tarantino would think IB is a better film than Reservoir Dogs? Personally I can't believe he would but I respect the consensus which obviously thinks this is better.

I agree and IB is a great movie.  One of my recent favorites, but there are so many better films already on this list. I chalk it up to newer film geeks who still have to watch a lot of the older films.

Nope, I like True Romance but that's mainly because he didn't direct it. I also like his portion of Sin City. Otherwise, nope, I don't like a single film I've seen from him, he just doesn't do it for me.

I'll have you know that my high acclaim for Inglourious Basterds has little to do with the number of films I've seen. It is an extraordinary movie, and though there are plenty of films better than it already on the list, it is still totally in my own Top 100.

This is one of the most divisive issues on the forum I think; it makes people react quite sharply if you are accused of not being educated enough in some type of film or another. I don't think it has anything to do with that.
What I think may be going on, as far as old vs newer films may have its roots in people's ages. If you took the 25 top 100 lists made by the oldest 25 people and compared it to those by the other younger contributors I would expect two very different top 100s to appear. That may sound like stating the obvious. [I am also not asking anyone to do anything as insane as that!]
I am not trying to be a spokesman for a generation here, I just think that if you grew up watching some of those 30s to 50s films as I did on the BBC and then you returned to them now with a FSpotters head on you will have a different perspective than if you come to them for the first time now. Also as has been said best by Ferris about Close Encounters, those films you see in your formative years will lead to you having a completely different perspective on them, so everyone has a set of films like that. My kids find both Alien and Blade Runner to be too slow, this saddened me but made me realise how different their POV is.
So I don't think it is down to not watching enough films (new or old) but HOW you have watched those films.

Not just how, but also what else you have seen before and your age at first viewing. I know that for me watching Metropolis took a while to get used to the silent style of acting, it is very different to modern styles, yet someone who watched it when it first came out would find it 'normal'.

Some of my stats

Of the 80 films so far:

In My List   18
Not Seen   37, a shocking 46.25%, very very bad.
Overrated   7

This list is definitely a high priority, but I think it is natural to have gaps in your lists by dint of age perhaps or just not having the time in the past. When I started posting here I was stunned that people were watching at least one film a day, I couldn't understand how to find the time. Now that is exactly what I am doing! At least one a day. I am aware I have the time to do that now and I didn't have it in the past. I am also aware that I hardly read at all now, and I am not watching much tv (outside of sport).

Well I have only been into movies for the past 5 years or so. And being only 17, I have a very limited age to have seen countless amounts of films. I have seen several thousand, and I feel proud of that. It is okay if I miss a few films. I'll have plenty of time to catch up with them.

Not seen- anything lower than 5 is cinecast!ing impressive
Is it jerky that I feel less than 5 should be the norm?  I think of us all as THE collective film fans, always looking for that next classic, and as a group, we're looking at the 100 films we say are the Best Films of All Time.  This isn't IMDB or AFI.  It's the people we post alongside week after week.  There are 3 I haven't seen, and I feel a bit of shame for that.  But, I currently have The Red Shoes (Blu-Ray), Joan of Arc is in my queue and F*cking Amal is a new entry, so I'm adding it to my marathon. (http://www.filmspotting.net/forum/index.php?topic=8652.0)  I understand if you're just getting into movies and the great back catalog of classics, but this list, carefully composed by a committee of your friends and peers, should be high priority.

Eh, it's more important to watch new films than it is to watch older films. Unless they are directed by Kubrick.
Title: Re: 3rd Annual Filmspotters Top 100 - Comments
Post by: Bondo on September 19, 2010, 10:01:17 AM
In fact, not to sound snooty but anyone who plans to submit a ballot should watch they're "Haven't Seen" list if it's more than 10.  I'll be watching my 3.

Heh, I had it down to 7 but you people keep switching the list up on me ;D

More to the point, a lot of the films I haven't seen aren't from unknown commodities. I've seen enough Herzog, Malick, and KK to know that their four unseen entries have very minimal chance of being top-100 for me (even though I don't outright dislike any of them). Another handful (400 Blows, Red Shoes, etc) were already planned in my classics marathon (and that's the point of that marathon).

Anyway, I've been pretty upfront about why my list is strongly favoring the 90s and 00s (about 4/5 of the films) and it is pretty far removed from "not having seen enough old films" as a cause. Even if I had seen every film, my list would still be dominated by 90s/00s films and those films would still be great.

I might switch my list up for next year. Something like The Woodsman that I absolutely love will certainly stay even though I'm probably the only one voting for it, but things in the second half of the list that are a bit more unique might succumb to more classics. I mean, do I actually like Toys more than Ikiru or do I just like that I like Toys more than I like that I like Ikiru. Hard to say. Given the dynamics of what I've watched from the newer and older set of films, 90s/00s films are the only place I can really go for oddball selections that give my list personal charm.

P.S. By this time next year I will have 0 unseen films from the list.

I'll break down my week for you, Sam.

6: Wake Up
7:45-3:15 or beyond: Student Teaching
4:00: Get Home
4:00-5:30: Prep for next day/check email/etc
5:30-6:00: Cook and eat
6:00-8:00: Clean up and relax
8:00-9:00: Maybe additional downtime, usually occupied by TV on Thursdays, Mondays, and Wednesdays
9:00-9:30: Shower/set out clothes for next day
9:30-9:45: Make lunch for the next day
10:00-10:20: Watch Arrested Development or The Hills
10:30: Sleep

Weekends are for films, and prep work, but yeah, I think we are getting Catfish, Never Let Go, and Wall Street this week, which means I have 3 to see plus a 1.5 hour ride home on Friday. Films are tough because, unless I'm moving around, I tend to get tired.

Tried that Friday night. Turned on one of the Futurama films. Fell asleep half an hour in. Drifted off during Twin Peaks as well. I can watch films, and I try to, but these are not optimal viewing conditions. I should be giving films, especially ones that are supposed to be great/require a sharp mind for analysis and processing, as much attention as I can.

Again, I really don't like having to pass some kind of test to participate in the forum. I get that this list is our taste distiller but isn't there value in watching whatever the heck you want? If watching the entire list is mandatory to be a good filmspotting citiczen then I don't know if I want to be one. I don't feel I should be looked down upon because I don't conform to the general filmspotting taste. Honestly, if I were the kind of person who cares about this kind of thing I could call all of you uncultured snobs for not watching anything by the greatest director of all time, Frank Borzage. But I respect your right to not each a single film by him. I'm not going to call you a bad filmspotter because you won't watch a movie. The only way to be a bad filmspotter is to look down on other filmspotters for thier taste or movie watching habits.

Post by: verbALs on September 19, 2010, 01:33:58 PM
I don't doubt that if I keep up the pace of my film-watching I will eventually get to every single recommendation on the forum (even Jason Does Dallas). The top 100 tells me that not only one or two people champion a film or director but that there is a weight of opinion behind these films. SO it is not a case of choosing one over another but choosing one FIRST and if you say I need to watch all the films on the list I haven't seen, it is really a compliment to the collective taste of FSpotters and the trust you place in their choices.
Sometimes people do react as if 'I CANNOT BELIEVE YOU HAVEN'T SEEN THAT!!' but it isn't common and you can put it down to enthusiasm and over-exuberance, unless it persists, in which case anyone would be justified in calling the culprit out over it.

You should check it out. You might like it. It's the The Fifth Element but in the '80s.

Eternal Sunshine ranked very highly on a few best of decade polls.  I remember that critical reception was positive overall during its theatrical run, but nothing that indicated a best of decade or all time stature that was apparent in the critical buzz that accompanied No Country and There Will Be Blood.  It seems like Eternal's fanbase has grown a lot in the following years.  A revisit is happening soon.

Eternal Sunshine is something I regarded highly after my first watch and had it top ten that year but rewatching it earlier this year I thought it was kind of meh. I think I need to go best two of three on it in case I was just in a foul mood.

I've seen The Science of Sleep (my current fave Gondry), Be Kind Rewind, Block Party, and Gondry's music video DVD at least 4 times each.  I'm really drawn to those, and I have no doubt that the appeal of easy viewing when it comes to Rewind, Party, and his music vids have a lot to do with it.  To me, Science is a small near-masterwork.  Have seen Eternal only twice with a couple of years gap in between viewings.  Odd that I don't think of Gondry as one of my favorite filmmakers.

I rewatched it last year.  It's OK.

It made #47 on my Best of the Decade list last year.  It did not make my all-time top 600 this year.

When I first noticed it, I went back to counting to see if it would make a huge difference... I was thinking Once was closer to 100 than it actually was.  Then I was bummed, but still found it worth mentioning.

In conclusion, there's quite a few popular movies I haven't seen yet. Unsurprisingly. Rear Window (#12), Apocalypse Now (#36), and Wings of Desire (#171) will most likely be first up.

Many thanks to Wilson for putting this together so ably.

I haven't done extensive stats outside the top 100 but I did count 18 films in 101-200 that I hadn't seen, making an even 30 out of the top 200.

Of the top 100, Shawshank is the only one that I'd seen that wasn't on my list that fits into the I need to rewatch it because it could make it category. Ikiru on the other hand is probably the one that is closest to my top-100 and could make it next year simply because I hadn't had enough time to really ponder it for this year's list.

Junior, I got your back on this (not sure if you want or need me there, but there it is).

I think it is perfectly legitimate to only watch the films that you are genuinely interested in. That's precisely what I did with the top 100s from 2008 and 2009 - I made an effort to watch the films that had interested me anyway, but at no point did I have the intention to watch the complete list. I have caught up with a lot of great stuff, so that now, there are only 12 films on this year's list that I haven't seen. Out of those, I'll likely only watch three or four before we do this again, because I simply can't see myself falling in love with the others. I'm not saying they are bad films or that it's impossible that I would enjoy them, but with so many other films out there that I am dying to see, some of these simply don't have much of a chance, no matter how many filmspotters tell me I should see them.

That said, Junior, I really think you would like TGTBATU, OUATITW and Dr. Strangelove. One word: MILKSHAKE!

Post by: verbALs on September 21, 2010, 05:56:26 AM
I think this is getting turned around a little. Of course there isn't any compulsion to be a completist about this list (someone actually implied there was peer pressure involved which obviously made me laugh). However, since coming on the forum if there has been a positive consensus behind a film or director that group buzz has 'generally' been matched by a great movie (M, Aguirre, Red Shoes are good examples). So it is a good guide but CINECAST! it being a rule to follow.

Ripper list, probably better than last year. The Godfather also got 315 points last year!

Most happy about Once Upon a Time in the West's leap to #3, Inglourious Basterds' opening and no Star Wars.

31 from my list made it and I haven't seen 23. Of those 23 I most want to see The Double Life of Veronique, Le Samourai and Ikiru.

P.S. Love my quote for Fargo. I can vividly remember my excitement while typing that.

However, since coming on the forum if there has been a positive consensus behind a film or director that group buzz has 'generally' been matched by a great movie (M, Aguirre, Red Shoes are good examples).

In truth I don't think anyone seriously proposed a binding rule, more a rule of thumb that it be the spirit of filmspotting to be well watched among the group consensus lists. I for one plan on doing so if only because I'm an obsessive list completer, even though I'm sure to detest a decent number of the films. Group buzz is no antidote to Bondo...as yet I'm not contagious though ;D.

It's not like I haven't taken a good half of those films out from the library with the full intention of watching them at some point in the following week. But there has to be some kind of strange allignment to make me actually watch the film in question. Which is why I still have those four movies unwatched.

The same with my quote about The Double Life.  I can't remember being so joyous about a film.    BTW, Chardy, I think you will love it.  

Also, I have been trying to watch the top Filmspotting films.  This is not because I am interested in all of them (I had no interest in 8 1/2, which I loved, and I still have no interest in Goodfellas, which I will eventually see).  I see them because even if I don't like them, they give me a basic film standard to compare other films to.  Even though I didn't really care for Jules et Jim, it helps me understand other films, and so gives me more appreciation of them.  This is more than saying, "This film borrowed from this one".  It is saying that this recent film is using a similar style and it is either better or worse, or I like that this scene of this film is trying to give a feel of this film of the past.  Or, if nothing else, it allows me to continue playing the "Name A Better Movie" thread.  ;)

Hum, what did I feel when I wrote each of my quotes?

Miller's Crossing:
Quote
What a film. It's got a chance to be my favorite Coen Bros. film. It's this subtle mashup of film noir and gangster and I loved how it worked.
Floaty, like that silly hat blowing in the wind.

Sunrise: A Song a Two Humans:
Quote
Great characters, great actors, great story and great laughs. It's rare that I truly care for the characters in the film but this was a rare case where I was on the edge of my seat for the last ten minutes.
Like the world's biggest sap for crying so damn much. Pretty much feel that way after every viewing but I don't think that's a bad thing.

Days of Heaven:
Quote
If a perfect film exists, this is it.
Objectivly awesome.  8)

Pulp Fiction:
Quote
the dialogue is well written, the performances fantastic and the narrative compelling. Easily one of the best films of the 90's
Like a $5 milkshake.

Yeah I will get to all of them in time. Some are priorities while others aren't but overall I will have a bias to crossing these 23 off ahead of other good films.

And yes, I have big hopes for The Double Life seeing I've really liked to loved the five Kieslowski I've seen so far. Your kind words amplify my eager anticipation! :D

Hmm, yeah, but you have Days of Heaven at #8, The New World at #18, and The Wind That Shakes the Barley at # 67, so there's a decent chance. But that's tempered by the fact that you don't seem overly partial to adolescent coming-of-age films. Post-adoscelence seems much more you're thing (Richard Linklater, Wes Anderson, Paul Thomas Anderson, Noah Baumbach). I think I saw The 400 Blows on your list at #275 or something; didn't see much else before that.

The following films received multiple votes, all of the Top 20 variety:

F—king Amal (6)
New World (3)
Charulata (2)
Leopard (2)
Never Cry Wolf (2)
Ashes And Diamonds (2)
Das Boot (2)
Hunger (2)
Last Temptation of Christ (2)

The following (additional) films received multiple votes, all of the Top 40 variety:

Amadeus (8)
Eureka (7)
La Jetée (5)
La Dolce Vita (4)
Charade (4)
Waiting for Guffman (3)
Love Me Tonight (3)
A Night at the Opera (3)
Werckmeister Harmonies (3)      
Millennium Mambo (3)
Happy Gilmore (2)
Being There (1979) (2)
L'avventura (2)
Ordet (1955) (2)
Short Film About Killing (2)
Adventures of Prince Achmed (2)
Celebration (1998) (2)
Los Olvidados (2)
Pi (2)
Out of the Blue (2)
Tropical Malady (2)
All Quiet on the Western Front (2)
Return (2003) (2)
Underground (1995) (2)
Blissfully Yours (2)
Finding Neverland (2004) (2)
Juno (2)
Small Change (2)
Welfare (2)
Battle Royale (2)
Capturing the Friedmans (2003)  (2)
You Can’t Take It With You (2)

Comparing those results to a general sense of how many people here have seen each of those films, I think someone should volunteer for the following discoveries marathon:

1930s: Love Me Tonight
1950s: Los Olvidados
1950s: Ashes and Diamonds
1960s: The Leopard
1960s: Churulata
1970s: Welfare
1980s: Out of the Blue

Really surprised that nobody else voted for the following:

RoboCop
Blowup
Knife in the Water
Rebel Without a Cause
Au Revoir, Les Enfants

On the other hand, I'm really thrilled to see seven votes for Eureka, seven votes for Ratcatcher, six votes for A Man Escaped, four votes for A Letter to Three Wives, three votes for Love Me Tonight, three votes for My Darling Clementine, four votes for Texas Chainsaw Massacre, four votes for Pather Panchali, and five votes for Wild Reeds.

Rewatches downgraded Goodbye, Mr. Chips and Mr. Deeds Goes to Town from A films to A- films, so they fell off the list.
